I heard various analysts give possible reasons why some of the many people are considering entering the Republican race for POTUS, even thought they don’t stand a chance. So I think I’ll run for U.S. President as a Republican. It might be fun experience to mingle with the Secret Service agents. Engage in some drinking games and wild car rides.

I live in Cobb County and we had a great company called NuSkin the minute that their tax breaks were over they moved to another state who would give them next tax breaks.

At the latest UN score card for human rights, the US didn’t fare so well. OK, so maybe it’s a bit ironic to have personal freedom protections questioned by North Korea. But country after country echoed the same concerns: Systematic abuse of police power especially against minorities and people of color. Continued use of the death penalty. Failure to close the Guantánamo Bay facility Inadequate protections for migrant workers and indigenous people

Atlanta will become will become more bike-friendly when bikers learn to stay in their lane and obey traffic laws like stopping at red lights and stop signs, and waiting their proper turn to go at the lights and stop signs!!!

Re: Waving Taxes, I worked for one of the 2 major U.S. telecommunications corporations. The CFO decided to consolidate all Finance positions in the U.S. for the company. Those of us in Alpharetta had to move or loose our job, because Lake Mary, Florida offered the best tax incentives in the U.S. I did not want to live in the sinkhole and black bear bite capital of the world, so I found another job.

If the Venter would move from just FOX News, he would find an abundance of other facts.

The most disturbing thing about the person who thought it was a Democrat thing in NY to wave 10 yrs of taxes for a business to move there, is they will spread the incorrect facts about it to other people and those people will perpetuate a lie. Ignorance breeds ignorance.

Read your local newspaper. Don’t just listen to FOX.

What is the word on the street about what the misdeed Dennis Hastert had done to an individual that required him to pull large amounts of money from the bank?

Thank you to the Venter who reminds us that our friends can do wrong and we can still love them and hug them and even support them through dark days. You’ve restored my faith in humanity.

I have to wonder if this nurse even exists and, if so, what they professed to make on their loan application. It’s easier to prove a point when you make up things.

A lot of states, run by D’s and R’s, go for the tax giveaways to attract business. GA will pay a business to move from NY, NY will pay a business to move from OH and OH will pay a business to move from GA, so you’re right back where you started. The only real beneficiaries are the businesses.

Hey idiot media types! Just because a friend and co-worker MAY be guilty of a crime, does not mean that friend should throw rocks at them! You can still hug a friend even if you think he did something bad – and show professional courtesy.

What do you mean business tax cheats? I use that Mercedes SUV 95% of the time for my real estate business and if the IRS sends me an audit letter, I’ll quickly create the paperwork to prove it.

You guys keep forgetting a prime principle of economics: “The selling price of a product is irrespective of YOUR cost.” Supply and Demand rules! I know this goes against your dogma, but your dogma is WRONG!

Just watched the National Spelling Bee. Fantastic performance by all the contestants. It is wonderful to see young people ( and their parents) who appreciate and take advantage of the opportunity to learn.

OK the 10 yrs without taxes is not a Democrat thing. It started with GA Republicans years ago. It is done in practically every county in GA. Do you read anything besides the Vent? The GA legislature set some rules and there is a panel in each county to decide if the business meets the criteria.

Cobb County recently okayed 3 businesses to move to Cobb. Criteria is they have to create 250 new jobs. NO property or school taxes paid for 10 years. Read to inform yourself.

Any tax to a corporation just like to any business or landlord is simply passed through to the customer or renter as part of the purchase price or rent. You raise taxes on them and you as a customer or renter pay more.

I don’t think New York can forgive forgive federal taxes. They can, as does Georgia offer state tax and other incentives to lure jobs to the state. I would’ve thought you knew the difference between state and federal taxes.
