[quote][b]drdonna[/b] - Debate is not war.[/quote]
Sure it is. Obama said that if someone wants to kill us all, we should just sit down with them and have a conversation with them.....about what I just don't know.
The only way to win a debate, or a war, or to win at many other things, is superior strength. And a 98lb weakling becomes equal in strength to a 250lb ogre through an equalizing tool like a firearm. It's true for individuals and it's true for nations. That equalizing strength then makes it even possible to have that discussion or debate.posted @ Saturday, May 4, 2013 - 12:50
More cars, more profits, more car accident deaths
Absolutely true. The number of deaths in auto accidents was 32,367 in all of 2011, and 25,580 for the first nine months of 2012. That's over three Newtowns a day on our streets. Every day for a year and then some.
And we have laws that register, test and license drivers....run by the government too I'll add. Yet there are no calls to restrict the types of vehicles owned and driven, no calls to ban high horsepower vehicles.
There are laws however, and the police enforce them against those who break the laws. Maybe we should enforce the existing gun laws against those who break them. How many people last week used a gun to commit a crime? How many of them were felons, out on probation (for the 20th time?), how many were repeat offenders? How many next week?
Get rid of the repeat offenders, and I mean get rid of them, and overall crime, and gun crime will go down. But, it's not PC to deal with the issue where it makes the most impact (at the criminal level).posted @ Saturday, May 4, 2013 - 12:26

I dunno. Last time I was at Calloway there were a lot of shots being made, some hitting their intended target, many missing wide to the left or right. Some hot iron there too. And one guy bragged about "pulling out the big gun" on the par fives.
Oh yeah, at the clubhouse it was overheard about a group where one shot an eagle and two others a double birdie.posted @ Friday, May 3, 2013 - 15:59

Probation = "time out" with all your toys and your peeps. It's not really punishment at all.
There ought to be a law that prohibits fellons from obtaining weapons.
Yeah, right.posted @ Friday, May 3, 2013 - 15:48

If, as is claimed, the economy is booming and housing prices/values are skyrocketing, wouldn't the added taxes from increased property values and business licenses from all those new business up-starts be enough to make up that shortfall without having to jack up the mil rate?posted @ Friday, May 3, 2013 - 08:29

Now figure out how long she's been running the bootleg operation and make her pay back any and all past rent or subsidies she recieved while running her "store".
Then make her pay the thousands of dollars for a license, OOOOOOPS!!, she can't be licensed to sell liquer by the drink that close to a residential property.
Oh well, give her probation and raise her welfare benefits two fold. No one's gonna do a damn thing to her. But have me open up a business without permits and I'll get buried in fines, fees, jail time, and confiscation of my stuff.
We get the behavior we get because we not only allow it, we enable it, encourage it, and financially reward it.
Time to stop that crap and dole out harsh penalties, the same harsh penalties that everyone else is subjected to. Make them work 8 to 10 hour days and pay taxes.posted @ Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 15:18

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
