@Man_Of_The_Mountain: Swimming a country club sport? Dude, you must be really really old. There isn't a collegiate swimmer that has dipped their feet in a country club pool in 20 years! Most country clubs don't even have a swim program.posted @ Sunday, April 21, 2013 - 16:14
@joeybaloney: I've done the Silver Comet. You see slow folks, rollerbladers, walkers, runners, and serious cyclist. You can easily do 20 MPH on it. I don't see how this will be different. Am I missing something?posted @ Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - 12:00
There's the problem. We should demand success, not mediocrity from our children. We shouldn't demand equality in competition, we should demand that those who set themselves apart from the rest get the credit they are due. Not be shamed for their success.
No it's not too complicated for me. Apparently, you can't read.
I like the image of you playing church softball. That pretty much sums it all up. I wonder what size shirt you wear.posted @ Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 18:53
@RightWingExtremist: Go back to your comment. You said demand success. That doesn't sound like teaching. You're agreeing with me! Awesome!posted @ Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 10:25
@RightWingExtremist: I agree with MJ on some of this. "Demanding success" isn't something for adolescents. I am among the most competitive of people and have learned the hard way on this way. Until that child has learned to demand success from him/herself, it won't happen. A coach at that age fosters a desire for success not demands it. You can demand a best effort.
Another misused word, especially for youth sports or school, is failure. You could have succeeded and lost. If you don't get that you are going to spend a lot of your life malcontent!
Now to come back to the middle on this one, the reason the saying from Ricky Bobby "if you ain't first your last!" is so funny is it's true! Let's keep keeping score in class and on the field!posted @ Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 09:42

In the private sector, many companies and families have gone years without a raise. Even worse, some have worked in fields in which they are overqualified, worked second jobs, and far worse, have been legitimately unemployed. Most government jobs have had years of COL increases. Government jobs are now often higher paying than private sector counterparts. This is a path to a failed economy. The sequester cuts range from 10% to 2.5%. If our government can't make this work, we are doomed.posted @ Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 09:18
Georgia started this process long before the tags. It started with license and fees for hunting, WMA's, etc. that used to fund the Ga. DNR. I believe Zell Miller changed all of these fees to go to the general fund. Now there in a position where they say the Ga DNR is underfunded. It's underfunded because the state has stolen the money! The DNR would have plenty of money if it were funded from it's actually fees.
Once again, a tax increase results in changed behavior. Legislatures assume a static environment where tax increases automatically raises revenue. It just never works this way.
My Bobwhite tags sits in my barn. Charging us every year like a usage fee for the tag? Unbelievable.posted @ Sunday, March 3, 2013 - 09:15
BJ Young blantantly pushed Nemi in the lane to clear space, then scored the final bucket. This move by Young was right after Pope was called for an offensive foul driving the lane. Inconsistency. Our guards tend to lead with the forearm and they are getting called for it every time. Fox needs to make our guards stop doing it or petition league refs. Hard fought loss.posted @ Friday, February 22, 2013 - 14:58

@georgiamom: What's scary about that? Do you know that she was or wasn't legitimately defending herself in her own home? Do you know anything about the behavior or substance use of her grown children? Does she live alone? The gun was in her home. It wasn't in her car or at school. Are you saying that someone that teaches shouldn't OWN a gun? That's just plain dumb. What a teacher does in her own home shouldn't be your concern.posted @ Thursday, February 14, 2013 - 10:00

@soulpen: Eminent Domain is a law for the "Government" to take property not corporations. It's only recently that corporations and individuals have struck "deals" with government entities offering to build higher tax based property than current use. This has been challenged and isn't as successful now that the building boom is dead.posted @ Monday, February 4, 2013 - 09:48

@BorisBadEnuff: I'm describing the likely treatment the case would get from a DA's office. It isn't my opinion. I didn't intend to belittle the crime or the victim in any regard. Anyone who has had to deal with criminal trespass prosecution and the "regular" police/sheriff will know exactly what I am talking about. With gang bangers, rape, drugs offenses occurring every day so regularly, it's just not on the radar.posted @ Friday, January 25, 2013 - 22:01
@CharlotteLadyGardner: Not to pick a fight but it's the mindset that the police is going to protect every single citizen that's a fairy tale. The ACCPD won't stake out this guys home. There aren't enough of them (police) to modify their regular patrols for this crime where no one was shot. The perpetrator in this case wouldn't spend a second in jail (no proof of gun used, nothing taken, etc.) It's just a trespass case unfortunately. The only law enforcement agency that enforces trespassing is the DNR!posted @ Friday, January 25, 2013 - 09:03
I wish some tax friendly state would offer to pay his moving expenses! Texas, Florida, Wyoming start the bidding! 60% total taxes for California in his position is close to accurate.
