@GroversMill: I was simply pointing out Mr. Brown's flawed logic. To your second point...hard working people go hungry everyday. Not everyone is a leech. As for your Bible verse: Proverbs 28:27 Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse. Luke 3:11 And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.” However, this one will probably suit you more...Romans 12:20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”posted @ Tuesday, April 16, 2013 - 14:13
"Claiming that half of the world’s food is being wasted implies that we are now producing almost twice as much food as we need."
No it does not. It means we are wasting too much food. Mr. Brown's pantry may be full, but I can assure you that millions of people in this country and around the world are not as lucky.posted @ Tuesday, April 16, 2013 - 13:11
@helligater69: I stand corrected. I was registered in another state prior to moving to Georgia as an independent.posted @ Monday, February 11, 2013 - 23:33
[quote][b]friendlyfire[/b] - Well, maybe you will get your chance to vote. If you are Democrat, feel free to vote twice.[/quote]
I am a registered independent who will vote twice. Once, in the Republican primary for anybody but Mr. Broun and again in the general election for the best candidate.posted @ Monday, February 11, 2013 - 19:30
Yeah, who are the Dems going to pin to the board so the mud can be slung?
Mud Slinging: an attempt to discredit one's competitor, opponent, etc., by malicious or scandalous attacks.
Malicious and scandalous, neither of which are necessary to discredit Mr. Broun. I prefer any candidate, Republican or Democrat, to Mr. Broun.posted @ Monday, February 11, 2013 - 16:20

Please stop. The above stated opinion is completely ignorant. There is plenty of evidence to the contrary.

"I do , however, take serious issue with any person, politician or not, who seeks to impose his religiously based morality upon me or my family. That they have NO RIGHT to do." @ppensyl: My point exactly. Mr. Broun considers me an enemy and immoral. Either may be true but I am protected in both cases by the same constitution that Mr. Broun is constantly trying to rewrite.posted @ Monday, November 12, 2012 - 14:17

@The Oracle of the Athens Banner Herald: Write your representatives. Tell them you want more oversight and less waste. Work to change the system. I'm sure the DOT wastes tons of money each year. That does not change the fact that roads need improving and someone has to do it. Complaining about the process does not fix it. Suggestions?posted @ Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 22:13
@The Oracle of the Athens Banner Herald: Whether 441 was expanded with gas tax money is not relevant to my point. Improved roads bring brick and mortar businesses and increased through traffic. From the above article. "Construction equipment manufacturer Caterpillar cited T-SPLOST projects as one reason the company chose to build a new plant in Bogart." I'm sure existing business owners between Athens and Commerce would tell you that they saw increased business upon expansion. Roads are vital to economic progress. They must be built, maintained, and widened to accommodate growing populations and to attract new businesses. This has to be paid for somehow and a 1 cent sales tax increase is the least expensive to the whole. If you have other ideas, I would be glad to hear them as would everyone else. I'm open to anything that will save me money.posted @ Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 22:06

Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. Highlight: Would set hours of operation of each Athens-Clarke County "building campus" -- e.g. City Hall, the courthouse and Dougherty Street government building -- at 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Park hours would either be set by the Athens-Clarke County manager or the Mayor and Commission. The ordinance has been derided by members of Occupy Athens and others as seeking to enforce a curfew on public property, thus damaging their First Amendment right to peacably assemble for long-term protests. read more
