FREE SPEECH for the week of Sept. 24 – Sept. 30

Free Speechers, here’s your “have at it” page again.

Post on topic or off topic or make up your own topic.

Here are some anonymous contributions that showed up in my email last week to get your pumps primed.

========================

I have some advice on how to fix our messed up schools and budget deficit. Don’t cut the teacher pay, but cut their extra supplement by 5%, start charging for school busses, collect all the money we are owed from the out of county kids who have been caught in our schools illegally and do NOT let them back in, quit letting kids go to different schools in the county with “special permission” as that is what messed up our schools to begin with, get rid of the senior tax exemption if they have grandkids living with them that are in our schools, and start charging the out of county teachers kids that go to our schools. Maybe even stop serving hot meals. Not popular decisions, but necessary to save our school system. There you have it, and the advice was free.

***

WOW,WOW,WOW. I just got put in the group that doesn’t pay federal income tax. The group that Romney says he doesn”t worry about because we expect the gov’t to take care us. My wife and I paid income tax until our retirement. Our retirement is not enough that we have to pay income tax. Mr. Romney, you really are out of touch with the lower middle class. I get nothing, natta, from the government; never have. Mr. Romney, you need to go into the cities and go to the poorer areas in the morning. You would see thousands of people going to work every morning on the subways and buses. Most of these folks go to jobs that do not pay a living wage. Mr. Romney, many of the folks clean homes, cars, offices, and have more than one generation living in a small apartment and they need government’s help. These folks furnish the young to fight our wars. How much is it worth to you, Mr. Romney, to have the poor kids to die in war so that you and the higher class won’t have to? You just lost our vote. — Senoia, Ga.

***

E-gad. Yet another, too lengthy, dissertation from that Mr Parker in Peachtee City. ENOUGH! Even the AJC limits letter, faxes and e-mails to so many words or less. His using The Citizen to hear himself talk (and voicing his political views among other things) is getting to be too much. Who made him king? I'm just about ready to just throw your paper in the trash when it shows up, because it is the same thing over and over (about the same stuff, from the same people). We are just WEARY of it. Must say, though, I love the editorial cartoons!

***

Thank you for the excellent article by Derek Wolter. It was superb. Kudos to you for giving us a good dose of thinking print.

========================

Free Speech is free for another week — have at it!

Hey all, Crosstown Grille is open

They opened Monday. Soft opening. Drove by and looked in and wasn't planning on eating out, so had a cold one and some appetizers. It's a keeper. Nice bar (2 of them, one small one). Nice big booths in the middle of the main dining room and tables along the walls. Actually not much for walls in the main dining room, nice glass french doors onto the patio around 2 sides. After dark, it's a little dark on the patio..will have to work on more lighting maybe. And yes, the aeroponic gardens were ponicing tonight. Had some of the greens from them and I must say, never tasted greens so good. Never have been one to say salad greens taste better or worse, but these are definitely better.

The waitstaff and bartender (might be a manager, he used to work at Big Daddy's Oyster Bar) were very attentive. This is a real live grown up restaurant and bar. Not chain, not for lots of idiot kids running around and squirming in their seats while parents ignore them. If you have well behaved, well-mannered quiet kids, yes. If not, stay away. That should cut down on about a good percentage of PTC families who have never taught children how to behave in a nice restaurant. Great menu.

If you want to be with laid back boomers and generally mature adults of all ages having a fun, relaxing drink and dinner (or lunch), then go. You will like it. Best thing to happen in Braelinn in a long, long time. If you go in the next couple of weeks, they are still learning the menu and are open to suggestions and service was great for a new place. Let them know what you like. Don't be in a hurry if you go.

Thumbs up and welcome to PTC, Maguire family. I plan to play and hope you plan to stay!

Well thanks for letting the cat out of the bag. Went to try them out last night around 8:30. Wait time was 1 hour. That made El Ranchero an attractive alternative. I guess, in retrospect, if you hadn't made your announcement I wouldn't have been there either. Hope for better luck the next time.

Sat. night on a holiday weekend with 80 degree temps in October and an air show right down the road. First Saturday night up and running, too. I don't know, I would think they would have been busy even with my cat in the bag. Sorry, was just trying to recommend a new place and I'm even sorrier you had to go to El Ranchero. I hope you have better luck next time and you find the wait was worth it. However, should I take it we won't be hearing from you if you do like it?

G3Dude, if you mean the Downtown Grille in Tyrone by the Legacy

Theater, I have been there about four or five times in the last year and have never been disappointed. I took family from out of town and they enjoyed it and asked to go there when they came again. They eat out often and like everything from top shelf gourmet to just good tasty food and really enjoyed Downtown Grill both times. Service was good and they have a pretty varied menu. Give it another try.

G35 the place is excellent. Try the Blue Plate Specials, chicken fried steak is amazing. The steaks are excellent, as well. Since we live at the far south end of the county we don't get there as often as we would like but for those north of 54..one of the best restaurants around.

So, you have lost your followers here in Fayette? You go to Newnan and tell their C of C that the only thing stopping a bridge is fear? Oh no, Mr. developer Pace. That isn't the only thing stopping it. And no, it is not a Georgia project. It is not your project, either. You can build your 3000 home Coweta City planned community and you can finance a route to I85 over in Coweta. I am sure Coweta has big buck tax breaks they will fork over,too.

3 Afghan Officers Who Went Missing

on Cape Cod Update #2.

Seems these 3 sahibis spent last Friday night at "Cape Cod's only Gentleman's Club". With 5 others, till closing, around 1AM. Spent 2 or 3 hours there. Two Captains and a Major. How does an 18 year old become a Captain in the Afghan army? Don't answer that.

Of course, this requires American leadership that will communicate a strategy concerning our determination to defend those individuals, including arming people, something the current regime is incapable of doing.

Obama and Kerry convincing many Arab countries and our western allies to join us in destroying this evil among us! No one wants more war and death - except possibly those who make money supplying the war machines on our globe. Where are our local leaders - CONGRESS? Home. With their rating - they have reason to worry about re-election. It was good to see the Congress support our leader and other world leaders in this endeavor to stop ISIS.

3 Afghan Officers at Niagara Falls

Just showed up and "presented themselves" on the Rainbow Bridge this afternoon. Guess their Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure weekend has come to an end.

Just a nice drive across I-90 to the Falls, that's all. They were about two weeks early for the truly gorgeous foliage they were expecting but, alas, the trip back to the homeland leaves Wednesday.

However, the new photos they took with their brand spankin' new iPhone 6's will show those back in the homeland what the word "green" looks like. And what a breathtaking country we truly have here, so peaceful and friendly and lush and civilized. Maybe they stopped at a truly American traditional Christian church service yesterday morning to see what we all are so passionate about in our very understated way. Maybe they had some apple cider and a just picked McIntosh apple at a fall country fair in the Berkshires.

Maybe they saw a country border crossing that is just breathtaking in it's beauty with 2 countries sharing a common philosophy that we can all get along on one continent without fear of death or mutilation or imprisonment for speaking our minds or professing our faith to whatever deity we choose.

I just hope Tom Bodett left the light on for them.

Newest update. These 3 stooges are now in the custody of US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement as of this morning. They are being charged with administrative immigration violations and placed into removal proceedings. They were interviewed by Canadian authorities last night.

I guess Tom Bodett didn't leave the light on for them. I don't think the US govt. or the Canadian govt. will, either.

Oh, and just in case, knock 'em out and stick a GPS device inside them, before they head back to the homeland. I'm sure we have a satellite up there somewhere that can keep track of them.

What we would be talking about tonight if that guy had explosives attached to his body. The fact that he could make it INside the WH is unconscionable . Someone near and dear to me used to work inside and outside 1600 Pa. Ave. There are so many layers of protection that failed it is unreal.

While I know this prezbo has, by far, damaged this country more than any other in history, I also realize it is a home and a symbol of our democracy. This is a massive failure of security and I am furious that this prezbo publicly came out in support of this utter failure of duty by those in charge of keeping OUR White House safe. This is the standard he sets for his security team, our military and all law enforcement under his control.

Did you see John Kerry answer NBC's Andrea Mitchell's question as he walked by her today about the porous border of Turkey and Syria and how it needs to be protected? Oh, yes, Kerry said, the Turkish govt. needs to get control of their border. Another look in the mirror and repeat what you just said moment for the BO administration. Talk about hypocritical!

and while we sit comfortably in front of our computers, the leaders of the globe have joined together and attacked ISIS! (This morning's news!) I think the global leaders are protecting us against the evil of ISIS. (if you have ever been to the White House, you realize that our President and his family were not in danger, and thankfully this incident will point out the weakness in protecting OUR White House - so that a more tragic incident will not occur.)

While we are attacking - ISIS still holds hostages. We don't have the entire picture of what we're dealing with - but although pundits try to play the blame game during this crisis - our military and the President seem to be working together with the rest of the world - especially the Arab world. Congress is at home . . .hmmmmmm.

CalSTRS (California Teacher Retirement) has just over S109,393,000,000 (2013) invested in Global Equity (stocks). That's about 58% of their total investment pro folio. I can assure you those that manage this fund are doing everything they can ensure high returns. Oh, and those teacher members - both active and retired - are happy to see CalSTRS has picked stocks which offer good returns.

You're absolutely right! Their wise investments of the money we have earned in the US gives us money to spend in the US - and this money is taxed by the US!! Money working for the US!! Can't say that about all the businessmen who have taken their companies OUT OF THE US in order not to pay taxes!! (Cheney????) If the financial advisor you're using is not investing your funds wisely (and globally) so that you can continue to contribute to the US economy - maybe you should take another look at how those funds are being used. US educators (California teachers) do spend money in the US. How about the company you work for? :-)

PTC selling out to home construction

Is this the future of the frontage and green along Robinson Road?

Legal 15336

Notice of Public Hearing

The Mayor and City Council of Peachtree City will hold a public hearing on Thursday, September 18, 2014, at 7:00 P.M. It will be held in the City Hall Council Chambers at 151 Willowbend Road in Peachtree City. All interested parties are invited to attend and be heard.

The purpose of the hearing is to allow for public discussion of a proposed variance for the property located at 424 Robinson Road. The subject tract is 4.36 acres in size and is zoned R-43 Residential. Martin Dodson Homes desires to remove the existing home and then subdivide the overall tract into four one-acre lots to accommodate four custom homes.

The city s Thoroughfare Plan classifies Robinson Road as a community collector. Section 803(a)(6) of the city s Street Design and Construction Standards Ordinance stipulates No direct residential access (drive cuts) onto arterials and collector thoroughfares shall be allowed unless a variance is first granted by the city council of Peachtree City.

The Applicant is requesting a variance from Section 803(a)(6), specifically to permit the relocation of an existing driveway, which would become a shared driveway and provide access to two of the new residential lots, and to construct a new driveway onto Robinson Road to provide access to one of the new residential lots.

An existing shared driveway would provide access to the fourth residential lot. The existing driveway provides access to three residential lots behind the Hayes tract, and the Applicant desires to utilize this driveway to provide access to one of the new residential lots. In order to do so, the Applicant is requesting a variance from the definition of driveways as included within the Land Development Ordinance, which stipulates residential driveways shall not serve more than two single-family residential lots.

Information pertaining to this public hearing is available at City Hall, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M.

Elfie - Don't understand the problem

Nothing about this variance discusses losing the greenery along Robinson.

They are simply asking for a variance for a shared driveway onto Robinson. This is because they prefer no driveways.

I don't have a problem with this as long as the driveway is wide enough for two vehicles to pass without someone having to stop on Robinson to make a right hand turn into the driveway.

There are already driveways that lead onto Robinson. I don't see an issue here.

Please enlighten me if I am wrong.

I'm worried about a precedence being set. All along Robinson are large pieces of property that could be subdivided with long, narrow lots opening to Robinson, with minimal impact on current residents homes compared to the generated income. Look at Camp Creek and the area south of Crosstown. The few homes that due have driveways onto Robinson have several acres with homes set far back from the street with room for large garages and turn arounds. The exception would be the old rental with a typical driveway that is to be demolished, which always has vehicles use the yard as a turn around and parking spot.

I see this as a possible upgrade. If the design has ample greenery out front and one wide driveway that would allow cars to enter and exit, I think this is something we can allow.

I drive Robinson every day. I'm more concerned about deer or bikers running into my path than anything else.

not 1+ acre lots

If you look at the plots, each lot is 1 acre but very wide and narrow, another variance needed. Homes will need to be set very close to the street and the city is requiring at least 20" easement for the existent golf cart path. Who will pay for an acreage home site on a busy road? The current home is a rental that is empty most of the time. When there are tenants they seldom last more than a few months. Other homes on Robinson have long driveways with turn arounds and are set back from the road. What will be the parking options for residents visitors, UPS and mail trucks, etc...Hopefully not curb parking on Robinson. Robinson Road is heavy traffic in the morning and afternoons. It is a major link between south and north PTC. It's not uncommon to see 6-8 cars stopped behind the mail truck when servicing the few homes that already have street driveways near Spear. Homes that constantly go on the market without luck, and there are set far back from the street. How will the demolition and construction of four new homes and a road effect travel? It's a scrap piece of property left over from the original property owners(prior to Robinson Road being paved) who built Avalon Park. Why would the city give all these variances for an undesirable piece of property?

I know exactly where it is..

I have not viewed the site plan. 4.36 acres split up 4 ways equals more than acre each to me...maybe I need to take a look at it to see how it is laid out.

IF you owned the property, how would you feel about the zoning? Or do you think the City would be better off to leave that old house there?

I think they must have felt pretty good about the variances being approved or they would not have closed on said parcel. If there are already Acre or so lots on Robinson, this is pretty much a slam dunk. I do not see 2-3 more driveways being a huge issue myself.

I realize that opinions vary, let them hear your issues.

Just because you build it,

does not mean someone will buy it. Printed findings from the city staff presented at the July 10, 2014 city council meeting. "A typical lot within the R43 zoning district measures 150 wide by 290 in depth. Because of the configuration of the subject tract, the proposed lots would measure approximately 290 wide and 140 in depth. The configuration of the overall tract would create four narrow, but wide lots which is atypical of lots built in similarly zoned neighborhoods."

Barry Obama will be in DeKalb county Tuesday

The ruse he is putting on says he will be here to talk at the CDC about ebola.

The real reason he is here is to campaign for Nunn and Carter. He will be teaching the corrupt community organizers (of which he is king) of metro Atlanta how to phony up the ballot boxes with fraudulent voter forms from people who don't exist. You remember, a new ACORN. This time it's called The New Georgia Project. Housed out of a hotel in the city. Even Coweta County has received these phony voter registrations.

I bet our very own Board of Elections has been dealing with them. Seems these phony registration forms are the responsibility of each county elections office to verify authenticity. So, The New Georgia Project has been swamping county elections offices with them, and if the elections office does not have the staff or the where with all to research the validity, viola, a Nunn new voter on the rolls.

Nunn is a big deal for Barry. Moochelle met with her last week, then Bill Clinton met with her and now Barry. The machine is in overdrive. Barry is at a fundraiser thrown tonight in DC by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee..lining up some cash for Nunn and some more DC dirty political ads.

Of course, this is the new, focused prezbo. He said he is actually going to work all week and not play golf.

MLC & POTUS visit to ATL

Your vision got clouded by the smoke--real reason is to campaign for Carter and Martin-Nunn Political gain is always at the forefront with him and OH but wait--tfc problems? Hey, they're just citizens who don't understand the importance of what I'm here for! Just another example of his "me and the Dem Candidates first" thought process.

AHG-there's more

While at the CDC, he will announce 763 million US tax dollars to fight ebola....in another country...Africa. For six months. Makes you wonder if it originated anywhere else in the world..how much he would offer up...

MLC & Smoke

That's part of the smoke--that announcement (and I think it's a good thing) could be made anywhere--and did you know that support will include lots of military personnel?

Here we go again--sending our troops into harm's way. It is not

enough that so many came home maimed in body and spirit fighting for a lost cause, now we will send them where ebola is rampant. I do not know how in good conscience we can send our young people there when the diagnosis seems to be certain death--or will they be used as guinea pigs to test the new antidotes? On top of that we will be sending millions of dollars that have been borrowed to yet another country. So who is there who will come to our rescue when we are attacked--who's troops will fight for our freedom, who's coffers will be emptied to re-build our country? I hope the day never comes when we will have to find out but we will be heading in that direction if we continue to spread ourselves so thin for every other country while neglecting our own borders and needs at home. As a strong, healthy country we can help others; depleted, with a tired, sick, understaffed military and old, worn-out infrastructure and constituency we can be of no help to ourselves much less others. Let's wake up to where we are heading.

I agree. It is insane to send them over there. They are being put in harm's way, and so will we if they bring the virus home. Obama is really doing a stupid thing.

Oh, please, let's not have any boots on the ground...ANYwhere! (sarcasm noted)

Well, forget the smoke. Maybe Barry looked in the mirror and saw...bioterrorism? If we think the Middle East is a cesspool of terror, I shudder to think of what we are getting into in Africa.

Twenty four minutes today

If you have the time, take 24 minutes to listen to and see The Pentagon 9/11 Memorial video below.

Scroll down the page to the black box which has the video in it. It is not flashy or fast, just paints a picture.

For survivors and families, thirteen years later.

A sobering moment. Seeing again all the people who stepped up

makes you more than proud to be an American. It is so sad to see the agony some of those firefighters are living now due to what happened to them back then. We owe them everything we have to make their lives and those of their families as pain and worry free as possible. We may not forget but we push it to the back of our minds and we need to keep it close so we never forget. God Bless and keep our country free.

Hey Cy-iPhone 6

After checking this out, I can get a free Phone 6..16GB. The trade in-trade up program that Verizon has on my iPhone 4 is a $200. credit that I can apply to my bill, the cost of the 6 is $199. Presto, free phone. Still have some more checking out to do, but looks good so far.

moe - Free iPhone 6….

Are you sure this is not one of those flim-flam "guvment" program thingies?? You might not qualify.

It does sound like a deal.

Oh Cy

Nice sh-ittie....

I get what you are saying. No g-deal here, though. Just the most successful company ever knowing where to hand out the freebie...so they can get more from you on the back side. Pure, unadulterated capitalism.

Thanks to my fifty buck investment years ago for my Otterbox cover, my 4 is in pristine condition.

My bro works for the company that is doing the logistics and reverse logistics of this mammoth trade in and sale for AT&T and Apple. They had to open at least one additional warehouse workplace to handle it. He has been incommunicado for months and now I know why.

Cy-you can

add to your collection a nifty Apple Watch to go with your 5S. Together (need to keep the 5S for the watch to work) you could strap it on and go. And record 12 hours of your movements, heartrate and just about every bodily function. You even can send a red heart symbol to your lover with your actual recorded heartbeat. For a paltry $399 for the starter model. If you want the 18 karat gold model, well, better be ready to fork it over, the price isn't even out there yet. Better have a heart monitor on when you see that. Above my pay level, for sure. And my need level, too.

I like Willys

Just not enough to go to that part of town on a Friday night until the traffic gets better. But that's me. I'll stick to the good service at El Ranchero.

Willys is bound to get traffic from those tired commuters that get stuck at the lights and crave a burrito to go.

Yes indeed - Mr. Cathy

was indeed a servant to the Lord, he will be missed by all that had the pleasure to meet him and know of his loving ways.

"God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them." - Hebrews 6:10

The world is a little poorer today but Heaven has no better angel.

My prayers are with his family at this sad departing.

RIP

The community will really miss Mr. Truett.

I remember years ago, shopping at Greenbrier Mall (when it was safe and nice) on the day the first Chic-Fil-A opened. They had employees standing at the front of the store handing out samples and coupons. Before that he had the Dwarf House near the airport. Look what it has grown to become.

Mr. Truett has helped many young people get an education and has done many wonderful things for the area, especially where needy young people are concerned. It is a world of difference to go into a Chic-Fil-A as opposed to the other fast food places. His employees are always neat, always greet you politely with a smile, and act as if they care that you are there. Not so at the other places. I am sure his son will carry on his legacy. He will be missed.

Butler building on JC Booth school grounds..

Built right up the hill from the Parkway....someone tell me this is not the final exterior finish on this building. No way a regular property owner in that area of town could get an approval for such an ugly building. It doesn't fit at all. What was the School Board thinking? Hideous is being kind to this building in that spot.

What gives?
