You are such an expert on Democrats, what they think, how they live, where they get their news, etc. I can only assume you spend quite a lot of time in their company. I guess you really must enjoy hanging out with these folks you know so well, despite your protests to the contrary.
Or... perhaps you simply don't know what you're talking about. You're like an anthropologist who relies on postcards for his information. Good luck with that. ...(full comment)

I agree that the charter school is very valuable. I was simply pointing out the fact that Ms. Longnecker is a teacher at the charter school and therefore should not be a school board member for MVSD. Too much of a conflict ...(full comment)

Let's cut to the chase. I don't think studies, fact finding, private consultants and whatever are necessary for this argument. Fact finding can be accomplished by looking at what you are driving on and over. You don't need to be a Roads Scholar (yes I know) to see that to see the need. As to raising the gas tax as a means to improve our roads I would think this would be a no brainer. Really, if you drive 800 miles a week and get say 26 MPG it would only cost you about $6 and change a month more to raise the tax a nickle. That I don't consider a bad return on investment. Weigh that against tire wear and alignments. ...(full comment)
Georgia School Confiscates Christmas Cards....
When boys and girls returned from Thanksgiving break, they discovered that their teachers’ Christmas cards had been removed – under orders from the Georgia school’s administration. Robb Kicklighter’s wife is a third grade teacher at the school. He said many teachers are disgruntled by the school’s decision to confiscate the Christmas cards. “They took down the cards so the kids can’t see them,” he told me. “Some of the cards had the word ‘Christmas’ and some had Nativity scenes.”
How true, how true it is evident that Responsible Republicans, have been doing it with their eyes closed. I actually looked over roughly 100 pages of the current budget and I can safely and confidently claim that I could not list all the worthless programs. Because what I consider worthless and what you would consider worthless probably are polar opposites. That said, I can guarantee that you could no more do it than me. Usually I won't waste this much time on such a ..... post. ...(full comment)
Christians are what, 90%, of this country. Why do they always feel so put upon? Palin, O'Reilly and the rest make millions ramping up this phony war on Christmas every year. And the usual knee jerk reaction of the rightwingers start with their posts of the world is ending. They Fox money makers must laugh up their sleeves that it worked once again. Why no outrage for the corporates that push Xmas (hold your horror, it is perfectly Christian word) well before Halloween or open on the one truly family day of Thanksgiving? ...(full comment)
