  1. No, I oppose stupid idots having the right to carry a deadly weapon. I am not opposed to guns at all, with EDUCATION. Meaning, once one applies for a permit, they are not allowed to take possession of a fire arm without taking AND PASSING gun safety courses, including a target simulation similar to the kind with law enforcement training, and the person is able to determine the difference between a valid threat and an innocent, which apparently, you are not able to do. By the way, the cop who shot the kid in Bartow and the guy who shot his neighbor? Both are facing murder charges, both have essientially lost everything they had because of stupidity. I sure hope you learn your lessons before you have to suffer the consequences of your actions.
  2. Exactly what I expect of someone like you and exactly why I opposed the open carry law. God forbid, one of YOUR teenagers doesn't run into someone like you if they were seeking help. I wonder, if your child was a victim of STUPID if you would feel differently? But people like you usually end up getting bitch slapped by karma, so I will just do what I do with all the other idiots...smile, nod, and shrug as I walk away.
  3. Actually, I do not understand you at all. People like you are the reason I fear for my 11 year Autistic son. As he grows older, he "looks" like every other kid. But he has the mentality of a second grader. What if there was a medical emergency in my home and he needed help? What if HE approached your yard? What if he needed help AT NIGHT and came on your property to knock on your door? Would you be like the cop in Bartow who shot and killed a teenager who answered his front door with a wii remote in his hand? Would you be like the "neighbor" who shot and killed an elderly man during last year's snow storm because he had gotten locked out of his own home and went next door for help? The fact that you would knowingly shoot and kill a pet to protect your holiday meal, then yes, I do think you would shoot a person who approached your property, even innocently. In fact, I wouldn't put it past you to sue the grieving family for costing you ammo. God forbid YOU ever make a mistake and have to suffer the consequences of "viligante justice". Not that my comments will bother you, Gone. Based on the responses you have given above, you appear soul-less to me. OSU, my heart is sad with your loss.
  4. If this were my husband's most recent employer, he'd be told he is "required" to be at work or be fired, no matter if the requested time off in advance or not. For the last two years, any request for time off he's put in FOR TWO YEARS has been denied ever single time. A few times, it was approved in advance and then they told him the day before he HAD to be at work or lose his job. So he stopped asking and just started calling in sick when he knows he needs a day (like when he went to interview for his new job). He repaid the favor by not giving notice when he accepted the new job. He got his PTO pay when he left, so it was like a severance check. Since his was a key role, and he took more then half his crew with him, the boss ended up screwed. As in, they shut down the campus for several days. To answer your question: After numerous grievences with the Dept. of Labor and corporate, he was reminded that Georgia is a right to work state and employers do not need a "valid" reason to fire an employee. So no, you are not required to give the driver his requested day off. But with the driver's response to you, it seems he may not "need" that job as much as he is needed at that job. Be careful if you choose to "force" that person to come in that day.
  5. We use them too. If the payment is a hardship, let them know. They are willing to work within tight budgets.
  6. We use Just Trash, too. Been with them for years. Excellent people, locally owned and operated. We highly recommend them.
  7. Thanks for this post. We went camping in Carroll County last weekend. Both my daughter and I found three ticks each on us when we got home. All the boys in my house escaped the ticks, but we literally took a shower in flea and tick shampoo! It freaked me out and now I'm looking up the best tips for preventing ticks.
  8. Sorry guys, I've been busy house hunting. I can't believe how easily this process is going considering its such a life change. We're going to New Orleans, whether it's red or blue is open for interpretation. While it seems "blue" on the surface, NOLA is also very tradtional and they have a strong tea party base there. I have a "corporate job" but its totally around my family's schedule. When in Dallas, I've had to travel at least once a month and be gone for a week at a time. Once we move, I'll work Monday through Friday and only during school hours. I'll still have two weekends a year, but the rest is flexible around my kids' and husband's needs. I hate leaving my roots, I'm most excited about the school I found for my autistic boys. This may be the best thing that could have happened to them! And I'm not giving up on Dallas. I decided to rent my house here and before I could make it public knowledge, I've got three people interested in moving in. I'll check in on here, too, so I won't be a stranger. Y'all keep me posted on what's going on at home!
  9. Its actually a reflection of my opinion. And a response to someone's comment earlier asking how many people who are already living in Ga have been reciepants of the numerous new jobs Deal has brought to Ga. This has been a rough economy nationwide, true, but Georgia has continued to fall by the way side when compared to national reports. Our unemployement rating is one the the highest. Yes, I am aware it's recently dropped, but how many people are no longer eligible for unemployent? And how many are former professionals now working multiple retail positions to make a third of what they need to make to live? And how many people just gave up and applied for food stamps and wellfare? Personally, I've mowed lawns, cleaned toilets, babysat, and done just about everything short of prostituting myself just to help my family break even. My husband works two part time jobs and barely has time for his family. All we have to do is move out of Georgia and we can start to grow again. We can actually have savings again! We will be able to afford newer, more reliable vehicles!! We will be able to save for our kids' college and our retirement!! We can buy a bigger house in the new city for less then what we bought here for!! Suddenly, he's given a M-F job with half the hours he's working now and triple the pay. That's in addition to MY new job, which is almost mind-blowing to think of my luck in getting a job of that caliber in today's market. That's literally an answered prayer and even if I busted my butt for another decade in Georgia, I highly doubt an oppertunity like this would come our way again. Especially both of us, at the exact same time. I don't blame Deal for the crappy economy, I blame him for concentrating on real estate deals for the new Braves stadium (among other things) then rebuilding the working class in his state.
  10. slanted source or not, I also agree with the assessment. I moved back to Ga. 10 years ago. I moved here for a better paycheck. I ended up having my youngest two children within the first two years of moving here and I had to quit my job to be the full time mom. My husband left a good job in the previous state to move here and support me. When I couldn't work anymore, he spent YEARS going from dead end job to dead end job while we barely scraped by. About a year ago, I started working part time as a free lancer for a company out of state. They originally offered me a decent salary if I would move to their state. At first I said no, and mainly because my husband has been in his job for three years and crappy salary and all, it's a whole new world on the job market and to be honest, I was afraid he'd continue to struggle to find viable work. We are much older now so I basically figured we'd work way too hard for too little for the rest of our lives. And then, my husband hit the salary cap at work and he realized his job is in jeapordy simply because he's been there for three years, is reliable, and makes the higher end of what others earn there. We were faced with the tough choice of deciding whether or not we want to stay here anymore. And then with the airport issue, we just want out of Georgia, period. So last week, I accepted the full time position with the company out of state and committed to move within one year. The job comes with the biggest salary I have ever made in my life and it was truley one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make. My husband immediately started applying for jobs in the new city and we got the call Monday that HE'S got a new job with TRIPLE the salary he made here. In fact, what we stand to make in the first year is more then we've made in the last decade as a couple. The catch is we have to be in the new city in 90 days. Scary, daunting, but also the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us. Why did I tell this story? Because the one regret I have is that I'm moving before I can vote against Nathan Deal. For everyone else who is struggling, step out on faith and look out of state. You may find exactly what you're looking for and actually make a living again.
  11. I got the same response, cookie, when I put out a last minute plea for help. That's Pcom for ya! But luckily, PAULDING.COM IS NOT A GOOD REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR COMMUNITY!! And I THANK GOD for the Angels around here, that's for sure!! Good luck with this family. I will PM you this evening if MY group of Christmas Angels is able to come up with anything.
  12. We will keep Casey's family in our prayers, lifting them up for strength and healing. Thank you for sharing her story with us.
  13. I hear you. I will get some stuff to you by the end of this week. I have TONS of kids clothes, some shoes. I was going to seperate it and put it up for sale on Craig's List, but it's so much work, I've been putting it off. So my laziness is your reward!! I have boys AND girls from 2T to 5/6 in girls and 3T to 7/8 in boys.
  14. :rofl: :rofl: And THIS is why I return to pcom on my mornings off. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
