What a mess
Because Mccain is a great hero, this fellow Boortz who broadcasts from Atlanta radio, roundly criticized President Obama for telling Senator McCain that the election was over when McCain brought up the campaign! That is stupid and panders to the Obama haters only. McCain is a great hero--even though he eventually signed the papers for the evil Vietnamese guards-- which I would have done pretty quickly, but many heroes are in congress and can not be excused either from using past reputation as a tool. John thought what he said was cute and the President had to cut him off! That is what leaders do in those circumstances!
There are now those proposing to increase certain fees and even raising the price of lottery tickets to make up enough money to run the state and counties.That is like a retail store raising their prices trying to increase their income from short sales! Just runs more people off instead of attracting them..
State and county must cut their budgets (headcounts mainly, where the money is) and the lottery people ought to allow people like me to buy and pay for a year in advance what I want to bet. I hate that once a week crap or even once every month. (a hundred tickets for $75, maybe)
Cigarettes in GA are going to go up to a dollar a pack for tax to raise money. That is going to make cigarettes pretty soon cost a quarter a cigarette. You know what is going to happen----roll your own--no tax involved, cigarettes, like Pepsi are here to stay. (and Coke)
There are unions and actually teachers wanting schools left open that would only be half-full just to save jobs! The population is down in their area and they are not needed..GA pays about $300 a week unemployment up to 2 years right now! Many others having to do that. It will get worse.
That is like keeping a "fireman" on a diesel train!--which they did for many years. No coal shoveling needed!
Almost all European middle and high schools now have condom machines. It is reducing disease and no more people are having sex than before. When will legitimate and healthy sex be accepted? We are animals also!
AJC today had article about Commercial storefronts and the property they sit on soon to be foreclosed in great numbers. It has been obvious that the foreclosures are being managed (a few at a time) so as to avoid panic. Houses first, now commercial. It is not over. Better prepare. Banks are sitting on false assets and will soon have to write them down.
