    As a Staunch Republican myself, the Guv nearly brought me to tears with his inspired leadership. One of his top priorities is to catch more speeders!!! Forget curbing the tide of illegal aliens streaming into our state. Radar guns for everyone!! Truly a man of vision…

    Me, too(also).

    Guv Sonny knows if these illegal aliens(along with everybody else) would slow down a lil bit, then the officers could look at them a lot closer as they go by on the road, and better pick out who to pull over.

    Usually most seriously ticketed offenses begin with a simple traffic stop for a speeding ticket.

    When you add in a DUI, reckless driving, possible work zone factor, and a host of associated fees, you coulda bought a new side by side refrigerator and stocked it for years.

    It’s not the officer’s fault, they’d just as soon pull a shift, fill out their report for the evening saying,”Everybody behaved today”.

    The single one most expensive tax cut that would harm the general public the least:

    Stop breaking the law!

    Let the jails empty as folks sentences run out.

    All folks gotta do is not break the law, not get arrested for stupid stuff, just in general….behave. It’ll save everybody money, the perp, the taxpayer, everybody.

    Maybe the news won’t have a crime to report after a week or so.

    Wishful thinking, but you gotta start somewhere.

    Until then…just start with slowing down.

    Or drive like a maniac till you get one of them “Haul-ass Certificates”

    …….a few of them will usually slow ya down.

    So what else was this do nothing Governor supposed to announce? Georgia will be poised for greatness only when Governor Greedy is indicted for his criminal activity related to abuse of office regarding his illegal real estate crimes. The GOP will rue the day they embraced this former Democrat.

    Adam,

    Thanks. Cousin Sonny gets his malapropic sense of humor from my side of the family.

    Quotes from Cousin Sonny:

    1) That’s why I am proposing a $19 million investment for an initiative we call
    “Go Fish Georgia.”

    2) “Our world is, indeed, getting flatter.”

    3) “We have 10 international offices spanning the globe, we’re getting ready to open one in China, and one in India is on the horizon.”

    vj “great cuz, we need to to economically support China & India’s Christian Human Rights policies.”

    4) “The other principle our health policy will be founded on is the fact that we need a transparent marketplace. I want to create a system where Georgians can go online, look up doctors and hospitals and compare cost and quality.”

    vj: “why don’t we do that for Health Care Insurance Consumers while we’re at it?, maybe start with Shafer’s Senate Bill 509 from last year?”

    5) “That’s why this year I’m asking you to expand the graduation coach program to middle schools. Our middle school coaches will work with their high school counterparts in helping students transition.” “So I am recommending funding for a statewide online tutoring program to reach all students.”

    vj: “kids in bibb county aren’t allowed to take their books home anymore but good plan cuz… If you sign these proposed tax cuts, where is the money coming from? and oh, by the way, i would venture to guess, the majority of kids that need online tutoring probably don’t have internet access at home.”

    6) “The great philosopher Yogi Berra pointed out that “it’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future. He also said “the future ain’t what it used to be,” and that’s certainly true for Georgia. But the best thing about the future, as Yogi would say, is that it’s all ahead of us.”

    7) “We can deliver them a state of the future – a state that leads in protecting its resources, in growing jobs, in educating its children and in providing for the health of its people.”

    And that my dear Cousin Sonny is why we love you so much.

    Sincerely,
    Cousin Vic

    The big surprise was that it doesn’t look like there will be any tax breaks this year for Republican governors investing in Florida swamps. I listened carefully – nary a word.

    This signals a major policy shift.

  6. David says:

    Sorry, Rugby, Sonny will NEVER be a candidate in a national political campaign. He looks and sounds like he just came from making a cameo in the next Dukes of Hazzard film.

  7. Three Jack says:

    this follows his visionary speech at the legislative training session last month, “the future is ahead of us”.

    his legacy will be that of growing the state budget more than any guv in the history of georgia while still finishing at the bottom of all education stats (but at least the teachers will be freakin rich with an average salary of $50,000 after the latest proposed raises take effect). can somebody start a recall effort now?
