What kind of bigot is it that objects to a Christmas display? Who are these bigots? Can’t we know their names and their rationale? And why is it that the sensitivities of anti-Christian bigots are honored? No one seems to care about the sensitivities of believing Christians, who see their faith relentlessly mocked and ridiculed on TV, in the movies and in the popular culture.
I don’t think this will play well, given the region’s known bible belters.
I sincerely hope that you are true to your word. For at least a decade.
The sales tax should be lower across the line in Georgia. Looks like Chattanooga is 9.25% (Local rate PDF file: http://www.tennessee.gov/revenue/pubs/taxlist.pdf ) Looks like the Ga suburbs would be 7% http://www.etax.dor.ga.gov/salestax/salestaxrates/LGS_2007_Oct_Rate_Chart_Moore_rates_07.pdf
I’ve had one foot in Chattanooga and one foot in NC for more than a year now. I’m always bragging about what a wonderful place Chattanooga is to live and work. I certainly found it a good place to raise my kids.
Maybe its time I sell the house and settle in NC more whole-heartedly.
