    Permit needed?

    In most counties, if it's a a pre-built with no permanent foundation, they don't require you too. I don't know about Paulding. Your best bet would be to wait until Monday morning and call the permit office; (770) 443-7571.
  2. Wow, I thought I was the only one who did this! Whether it helps or not, if I got pulled over without the current one, I could show the officer where I have had insurance on the vehicle, steadily, for the past 10 years and that it's likely a mistake. Maybe it would help, maybe not... But I would rather show a continuous insurance history than nothing at all. Maybe Ugadawgs98 or Mr. Dis or someone else from the law enforcement community can post up as to whether doing this would be beneficial or not.
  3. There's probably no point in explaining since you can't see the difference in being taxed and redistributed wealth vs direct financial harm due to negligence. If a financial planner loses my money, I took the risk by letting them manage my money. It's my responsibility to do the research and pick a planner that will do the job I pay them to do. If you hit me and the accident is your fault, it was due to negligence. I have no say so in you getting your drivers license, how YOU maintain YOUR vehicle, nor how YOU operated said vehicle on a public roadway. I have no responsibility to ensure that YOU are doing YOUR job in maintaining safe operation of YOUR vehicle.
  4. Did you seriously just say that someone not having car insurance doesn't affect you but someone not having health insurance does? Sorry, but yes, someone not having car insurance DOES affect you. Start making uninsured motorist claims against your policy and let's see how long you keep paying the same premiums or keep the policy in effect before the insurance company cancels it.
  5. The primary role of government is to protect one person from another, from physical or financial harm. The role of government is NOT to provide healthcare to anyone. Having a law that says you HAVE to have basic insurance is protecting ME from YOU, in case an accident is YOUR fault. That said 'basic' insurance, mandated by government, does not protect YOU in an accident... it protects the other party. If YOU want to be protected by insurance in an accident that YOU caused, YOU pay for additional insurance that covers YOUR vehicle for YOUR mistakes.
  6. They were probably put on with an impact wrench and whoever did it just let it hammer on them. Any good tire shop should be able to handle this. DO NOT allow them to re-thread the studs... they need to be replaced. Replace ALL the studs and lug nuts that were affected. And be sure to keep all receipts and make Wal-Mart pay for it. Vic Williams, D&A Tire, or any of the larger retail tire shops should be able to handle this with no problem... ... or any reputable mechanic can do this also. OEM Studs and lug nuts usually are in the $2-$5/each range. ...and for the future... NEVER let a shop put your wheels back on a vehicle with an impact wrench, unless they use torque sticks (which most don't). They need to be hand torqued to the proper specs. If they are not, they can gall and stretch the studs, which weakens them.
  7. You might want to call and report it, especially if they had been working in the area. A buddy of mine used to be a Bellsouth/ATT tech and he said that a lot of techs would do the follow: If a customer called up reporting a slow connect and the tech came out and found a less than par pair that was causing problems... and there were no spare pairs left in the box, what they would do is disconnect your line and switch it to another working pair. If the person they swapped you with didn't have DSL, they were golden and didn't have to troubleshoot or fix anything... if they did have DSL, it was another service call to another address and it wouldn't show up on their 'fail to fix' list... so they would just swap pairs around until they ran out and were forced to actually fix the problem. IE: The original problem you had would just get passed around to all the other residents who are on the same trunk as you ....
  8. He towed it. Yes, you can. And if you get caught, you go to jail. You cannot LEGALLY drive a car, on a public roadway, without insurance. Call what in? The information they get on the MDT's in their car is the same information they get from dispatch. If the drive would have provided an insurance card with a valid date on it showing valid insurance, he would have accepted that over the computer. Sorry, that's not true. If you let your insurance lapse, they notify the state and the state will suspend your registration (TAG), not your drivers license. Wrong again. If I let my insurance lapse and they suspend my registration, I can call my insurer, get renewed insurance, get a copy of the policy and go right to the tag office and get my registration renewed and tagged, if needed. BTW, your link... it was for North Carolina.. not Georgia. In case you forgot, we are in Georgia.
  9. It's reported to the state. The states uses the report to make the tag invalid because of lack of insurance. The state does NOT report this to local law enforcement. Law enforcement would have absolutely no way of knowing if the insurance is valid or not, until they ran it. He ran it and it came back invalid. The driver had no way to prove they have valid insurance. The officer made the arrest/confiscation with the information he/she had at the time. He was well justified.
  10. I would agree! Typically, they will run tags while they are stopped at a traffic light or patrolling a parking lot, etc... If a person gets run while going down the road, especially a mile from their residence, there is good likelihood that they did something to catch the officers eye.
  11. Just an FYI... The motto "To Protect and Serve" is that of the police, not the Sheriff's Dept. Second, yes, police and sheriff's (and other law enforcement) do run people car tags while they are on patrol. No, they are not too busy to do this.. they do it all the time. No, they are not violating any laws or invading your privacy, by doing so. Your tag is displayed in public. They run tags quite often. They do this to look for reported stolens, unregistered vehicles, incorect tag to vehicles, and no insurance. And lastly, in Georgia you are not required to carry proof of insurance anymore, but it's silly to not do so. Computer systems are wrong and don't get updated sometimes. If you have an insurance card that show you have valid insurance on the vehicle you are driving, the officer will take that over what his MDT is showing.
  12. They will be in Savannah this weekend.
  13. The report I heard said that they had held the man up at his door for over an hour, arguing back and forth.
  14. It's going WAY too far. If that would have happened at my house, they would have been told to get the hell off my property and got the door slammed in their face. If they didn't remove themselves from my property, they would have been arrested for trespassing. If they had tried to force their way in, someone would have been shot.
  15. Mr.Dis, I think a lot of people confuse "search" and "pat down" and think they are the same thing. A pat down is what is typically known as a "frisk" and doesn't involved looking at the contents of a purse, pockets, etc. It's simply where the officer "pats" or "rubs" along your bodyline, OUTSIDE of the clothing to feel for large dense objects that may be a weapon. Would you agree?

    Repo

    Yep... in some states it's required and in others, just a courtesy. I don't think they are required too in Georgia, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    Repo

    Yes, repo people do a lot of repo's at night because they can sneak in, get the vehicle, and be gone.... and never have to interact with the RO. Repo'ing is a VERY dangerous job and they will do anything to keep from getting in confrontations. If you see them again, I suggest you NOT approach them. Many repo agents are armed and if you approach them armed, they have every right to defend themselves, if they feel threatened... and you approaching them with a gun gives them every right to feel threatened. Call the police/sheriff's dept and tell them what you see. If the police show up and it's a valid repo, the agents will show the police their repo orders and that will be the end of it... If they are not valid repo agents, then they will be caught red handed.
  18. I like the weight watchers diet, myself. I did the online "for men" diet (which is no different that the 'for women' verions) and I dropped 52lbs. The nice thing about it is that you can eat what you want... and the "points system" helps not only cut back on how much you eat, but gives you a reference on how much you can splurge. IF you start out with 50 points and you eat 10 points for lunch, you can have a nice dinner. After doing this so long, it gets you in to the habit of smaller portions and trying to eat better to keep your meal points down so that you can splurge on occasion. You eventually get to where your stomach can't hold as much as it used too and you get full easier.
  19. Thoughts, nor anyone else here, has that much time....
  20. It could have been a Vireo or a Yellow Warbler... The Vireo is similar looking to the Gold Finch, but doesn't have a black patch on their head. Not all Gold Finches have black patches on their heads, but most do. The Vireo has similar wing markings as the Gold Finch, but the Vireo is a little bit bigger. The Yellow Warbler doesn't generally have much black at all, but their yellow gets really muted and almost completely brown in the winter... as spring gets near, the brown starts to fade and the yellow starts to brighten up.
  21. All Chick-Fil-a's serve cole slaw. I think any of their combos come in two types.. Like the #1 combo is a chick fil a sandwich, fries, drink. They have the same combo with cole slaw. It's also a side item in a cup.
  22. I'm sure that's the combo that comes with the cole slaw though! :rofl:
  23. Yes, but it contradicted itself by blaming it on the touch pad and then used the phrase, "Mea culpa," which is latin for "my mistake."
  24. Although he was an alcoholic, there was no alcohol involved in John Denver's death. His pilots license was revoked because the FAA had found about numerous drunk driving arrests that he had. There were no traces of alcohol or drugs when they performed the autopsy. The plane crashed because it ran out of fuel in one tank and he was unable to get the supply switched to the other tank.
  25. We were without power for 2 weeks in the one of '83. We lived in a very rural area and there was no such thing as salt trucks or snow plows in our area. We had a large farm tractor that we cleared our driveway. We lived off wood stove cooking for the entire two weeks.
