From the AJC:
The public contribution for stadium construction will be capped at $200 million, which would come from the hotel-motel tax collection by the city of Atlanta and unincorporated Fulton County.
Invest Atlanta would be asked to issue the bonds using the hotel-motel tax that currently supports the Georgia Dome. The city’s economic development arm became involved after state political leaders balked at issuing construction bonds through the state.
The rest of the cost of the $1 billion facility would come from the Falcons and other sources.
"Other sources." Don't ask about the $800 million behind the curtain!
@Kiteless "i think there needs to be a movement to give the unborn child partial rights, in the case that it is deliverable."
So you almost exactly agree with Roe v. Wade and subsequent SCOTUS decisions based thereon, which essentially provide that a person has a right to abortion until viability, ie being "potentially able to live outside the mother's womb, albeit with artificial aid." Viability is generally about 28 weeks.
The "movement to give the unborn child partial rights" you wish for actually happened in 1973.
Less government is the answer! A large government is like an anchor holding us back!

The banks are lending, the housing market booming. The budget is balanced.

Russell Pearce isn't the Governor of Arizona. He's a soon-to-be recalled state senator/asshole.
"All religions have cannons for followers."
If true, that would almost be awesome enough for me to return to church. Sadly, I think Catholicism, at least, has stuck to mere "canons."
