    demagogue: a leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power.

    Erick,

    Do you owe Glenn Richardson money or something? Because you are really kissing his ass.

    Glenn isn’t worried about our tax burden. If he was, he would have done something to curb state spending during his tenure. All Glenn is worried about is trying to appear to be a fiscal conservative while actually being a phony conservative.

    Anyone heard the song Personal Tax Jesus by Depeche Mode? It’s a shame Johnny Cash is dead. He sang the original better than they did.

    Your own personal. tax jesus
    someone who heard your prayers
    hell no! property taxes ain’t fair

    feeling the pinch
    and your mill rate makes you itch?
    dirt and stone
    built that shed in back
    raised your taxes by a hallllffff
    lift your hands up in wonder
    Glenntax ain’t no blunder

    GREAT taxes are best
    put them to the test
    keep your land but give us your shirt
    we want your money not your dirt
    Glenn will deliver
    property taxes are the real killer

    Reach out and touch faith

    Is it too much to ask our government leaders to actually have a basic understamding of the principles of fiscal policy? Anybody that ever took a weekend seminar in personal finance (or heaven forbid a tax policy course understands ) understands the importance of diversifying your income. Let me put it in simple terms: Don’t put all your eggs in one F’ing {emphasis added} basket!

    Glen and his fellow travellers are following the footsteps of those brilliant Californians who have turned their state into a fiscal joke.

    Glenn Richardson is no Jesus.

    He is a liar and is lying to the Georgia people in order to try to increase his own political fortunes, the power of the Speaker, and to increase the size, scope, and power of big state government.

    He said that his tax scheme to increase taxes on services and strip power away from local governments would be able to eliminate property taxes. Of course, he knows that the numbers won’t work. It is a fraud.

    The truth came out yesterday: the only way he can pay for this is to increase the sales tax and that is exactly what he plans on doing. We’ve all know this for a long time, but the truth finally slipped out of old Glenn’s mouth.

  6. NonPartisanGA says:

    Glenn Richardson as dorian alluded to is just posturing for his run for Governor.

    Eliminating property taxes and shifting the burden to sales taxes without sharing with us the analysis on what the rates would be is either disingenuous or evidence he is not serious.

    Anyone who watched last session hasn’t seen anything yet on infighting and low blows.

    If folks cannot digest, understand and accept the fair tax with tons of documentation, do you really think we’ll accept Glen’s pontification on a whim without any empirical evidence?

    That dog won’t hunt folks…

    Well, for the Speaker’s tax reform to work, he must expand on Jesus’ miracle of the loaves and fishes by making state revenues replicate themselves.
