Ah.... The New Americans - screw social responsibility, screw the "social contract", screw education, screw progress, and most of all, screw our children. They don't deserve a public education ... Hell ... It might interfere with my government benefits.

The deadbeat speaks. Living with Mommie and Daddy (You said it in a previous post).. Clean up your room.
I am getting tired of the same old response from you. You give no reasons but something you make up about responsibility of SOMEONE ELSE. None of your business. Who cares what you think. Total BS.
Seniors owe no one. Most are trying to keep from having to go to work just to buy food. Many have had to go back to work, have you been to Walmart and checked out the Seniors working there. You are in a cloud. I have spoken to a few of them, they are really tight on money.
Read Psalms 41 verses 1-3. God rewards those who consider the poor.
Obviously your reading comprehension isn't very good. I've never said that I live with my "mommy and daddy." In face, I don't live with any relatives. I own my own home (free and clear, as I have for years) and also own a local company which provides employment to others. And, unlike some of you whiners, I don't complain about paying school taxes - even though I don't have kids in school now. It's just a social responsibility. And by the way, quoting biblical scriptures to try to get out of paying your taxes is just really bad form...

What a stoopid statement.

Just wondering what you're complaint is with anyone in law enforcement, or first responders. How about medical care givers who work at publically supported hospitals. Are all of these people evil because they live off the government.

You must be a Teabagger to be so irrational.

Social responsibility. Only you and Laughing are capable to define this? Who do you think you are. I define social responsibility as paying a lifetime of school tax and when you are a senior in your last days you have met you responsibility 100%. Sorry to inform you your definition is just that --- Yours.

Sorry about the Bible, are you an atheist?
Here it is:

NKJV Psalms 41

1 Blessed is he who considers the poor;
The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
2 The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
And he will be blessed on the earth;
You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness;
You will sustain him on his sickbed.

I believe God is concerned for the poor based on this passage and their are a lot of other passages in the Bible about the poor.

Contrary to what you and IO are spewing, there are a lot of seniors that need some tax exemptions. Do you take any tax exemptions? If you do, you are a hypocrite.
Right on

I think it is a good idea to give Seniors an exemption for School Tax. They have already paid for years and years and it would benefit our local economy if we attracted a lot more retirees to build houses and spend dollars at local businesses.

Yep, but that's a far cry from your assertion that I "live with my mommy and daddy." In fact, my parents did help me when I was laid off from a longtime job and when I started my own business. They didn't help so much financially as much as with moral support. I would not be where I'm at today without their guidance and prayers.

I apologize for assuming incorrectly. It seems you were previously calling me names and calling me molested. That does not seem right if you are a nice fellow. Serious note; Do you really believe there are not any seniors who need a school tax exemption? How about Fannin and all the other counties in Georgia, or do you have a hidden agenda.
Fannin has much better test scores than Union 2012, how do you explain that if they have a senior exemption? To you money is education, that is wrong, look at Fannin and Georgia as a whole. We spend as much as a lot of other states and their education level is better than Georgia. I think it is proven that more money does not correlate with better education necessarily. You think exempting a few seniors will hurt our children's future. Pure fantasy. It really sounds selfish to make people who are old to pay for something they can't afford. Remember Psalms 41. Maybe you should be a good citizen and investigate your school system and their use of public money. It seems that some think Union is not teaching students very well and are overloaded with administration employees. Are they about education or jobs for locals?

Any tax exemptions? You seem to ignore the valid questions and comments.

New Americans for progress, sounds good. You say "screw progress" what the heck is that. Progress is subjective. I would say progress is a senior exemption in Union for school tax.

Union Schools are about jobs, not teaching our children.
