Lori this is the link from the landing page (home page) of the City of Lilburn website.Read More http://www.cityoflilburn.com/index.asp?Type=B_BASIC&SEC={89B928D9-7F2C-4FE0-8FCC-6A87771B723A}&DE={01D3985F-DCF3-45AA-8088-45B0AE41C381} What it tells you is the City got caught making some really bad decisions. And the Department of Justice essentially said, Lilburn you better change your ways or there will be consequences. Trust me when I say the "leaders" that guide our community would not put that statement on the Home Page of city website unless they had to. I can tell you what those bad decisions are but that would take a lot of key strokes. In a post above I put my blog link. If anyone would like to contact me through that link I would be glad to respond.

well said, Thor.

Nice to read a well written piece like this. Of course, as usual Thor has chosen to completely takeRead More it out of context to slam Lilburn City government. As an elected official for about 25 years I take exception to most of his comments. I will not respond to them except to say that We are the most fiscally and ethically responsible city in Gwinnett County. I do enjoy sparring with Thor on this subject but for a variety of reasons won't be able to continue this conversation at this time.

It's fear based insecurities that cause people to act this way. The couples you are describing justRead More need to grow up. Sometimes it takes years of practice, and being with someone else who is immature. So I'll just add here that people are usually with who they are supposed to be with and when they've outgrown them and there is no hope of that person changing, then its time to move on.

I agree that certain couples need to grown up. In fact, I think most people need to grow up.Read More However, I'm not a big fan of this outgrowing and moving on deal that is so popular these days. The oath one makes on a wedding day lists no disclaimers about outgrowing being a reasonable excuse to abandon ship. That's Hollywood stupidity that's infected the masses. What is "thick and thin" if it's not working out how to live together when it's not easy? (it's not sickness because that's stated in a different part of the oath)

It is agreed that relationships are work and that a person should not look at relationships as a wayRead More to make their lives complete. It is normal for people to seek out others, though - part of the human condition. Good article overall - lots of food for thought for people to think about their own motivations for being in relationships.

So true...unfortunately many will read this and think, "Yeah, that's a great article," andRead More feel like they should change...and the next day, they will go back to life as usual.

Unfortunately, that's often the case, or many people- who this is applicable to- will read this andRead More think it applies to everyone but them.

Right after I submitted this entry, I ran across this great many people a gun owner in Texas savedRead More but it's yet to make the news. Objective journalism my ass. http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2012/12/media-quiet-about-san-antonio-theater-shooting-2524596.html

You can't be serious. I'm not sure such inverted logic even merits a response. I'll play this game.Read More Adam Lanza lived in Connecticut, where Mrs. Butterworth got her start. That means that all Connecticut residents pay no taxes on Mrs. Butterworth goods, making it more probable that Adam had Mrs. Butterworth pancakes the morning of. Now, neurological studies have shown that certain synthetic ingredients in Mrs. Butterworth's flour have hints of toxins capable of redirecting brain pathways. Adam had those dangerous pancakes, went postal, and did the unthinkable. Clearly this is MRrs. Butterworth's fault because they make tons of money and contributed to Reagan's campaign. Or we can blame the car maker the killer drove,or the tires on the car for not blowing before he got to the school. Or how about we blame the door maker of the door the killer shot to get into the school? Those door companies make tons of money because everyone buys doors. And I bet they contribute to parties other than democrat as well.

I must have well-behaved guns, including my Bushmaster M-4. I've owned may of them for a large partRead More of my 60 years, and they've never tried to hurt anyone or anything. Once a gun has been proven to misbehave, it should be confiscated by the Imperial Federal Government and destroyed. Additionally the owner of any gun which misbehaves should be generously compensated by the evil gun manufacturer.

George Wilson, you need to check your facts. An AR style rifle was NOT used to murder the childrenRead More at Sandy Hook, the criminal used only handguns. In the medias rush to vilify guns as being bad they screwed the pooch again. Liberal fools; blinded by their idealism. Where are the pragmatic people?
