This seems like a non-issue

The Governor removed some built up silt around his dock at Lake Jackson. From observations at the site, the media reports it seems the Governor moved less than 5 c.ft. of dirt, which means he did not need to get a dredging permit.

Nonetheless, the neighbors who live across the lake from him declared it a national incident of pollution and are demanding that somebody somewhere do something.

Good grief. I bet they didn’t vote for him either.

    Well, looking at Fonnette’s voter history:

    Presidential Preference Primary 08: D
    Presidential Preference Primary 04: R
    Presidential Preference Primary 00: *

    General Primary 08: R
    General Primary 06: D
    General Primary 04: D
    General primary 02: *
    General primary 00: D

    And her husband:

    Presidential Preference Primary 08: R
    Presidential Preference Primary 04: D
    Presidential Preference Primary 00: *

    General Primary 08: R
    General Primary 06: R
    General Primary 04: D
    General primary 02: R
    General primary 00: D

    * = Did not vote

    other than a slight D tilt, you really can’t tell.

    Or maybe we can read Fonnette’s books and figure out her motive. Oh well, it just a humous tale of a rural Georgia funeral.

    So, we have to rely solely on Erick’s well known ability to read minds and divine intent of people he does not know. He has a nearly perfect record in that reguard, so it is settled.

  2. According to Harris, she asked the person dumping dirt at Sonny’s dock, “Does the governor know you’re doing this on his property?”

    The person responded “I am the governor.”

    I’d like to know who that jerk really was.

    Last I heard it is nearly impossible for an average Joe to get a coveted lease on a Georgia Power lake….but, oh, wait a minute…Sonny is the Governor who has a chief-of-staff who retired from Georgia Power…case solved…now all I have to do is get myself elected Governor so I can get me one of those lake lots.

      I think it depends on the Lake. I don’t think there is as high of demand on Lake Jackson as other GA Power lakes.

    Lake Jackson is the only GA POWER lake where they allow trailers…that’s why Sonny wanted to be there…he has a nice double-wide trailer on his lot. Sonny has done well for himself…now if he can get his secret plan to continue…next year he will depose the Chancellor of the Board of Regents and appoint Mike Adams to the position…that will leave a vacancy…so Sonny’s clones on the Board of Regents decide to appoint Sonny as President of the University of Georgia…the Sonny Empire will survive…all this will be moot if a Democrat is elected Governor.

    “Last I heard it is nearly impossible for an average Joe to get a coveted lease on a Georgia Power lake”

    ……..not really impossible if you bust off, as the article shows, 465 grand……………but then again, probably a tench above average joeish……..

    “he has a nice double-wide trailer on his lot. Sonny has done well for himself”

    ….yep, the back of the abode appearing in the article’s photo definitely has the “trailer” look

    and they put this little “tumblebug” sized machine over in the lake and move a little dirt around in the lake, that was already in the lake, and here comes the photo bug neighbors raising hell……

    ….i really think about Sonny, being the nice guy that he is, standing there smiling, trying to be cordial, all the while doing the Mad Magazine panels where they show what you are doing, but also what you are thinking, in his mind…….i figure, as he’s standing on the edge of his dock, looking and listening attentively, in his mind he’s either thinking about an over-exaggerated Michael Jackson “crotch grab”…..

    …..or maybe something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NKqvhqoE7M

    Gator, don’t pay fishtail no mind. He makes stuff up, throws it against the wall and hope something sticks. Only problem is, what he’s throwing are usually racquetballs that bounce right back and hit him in the face giving him a black eye, while we all just laugh….again and again.

    The real issue here is the stupidity/arrogance displayed by Sonny. He should have had this cleared well before hand by EPD or his lawyers. If they couldn’t get an above board approval he should have kept the excavator out of the lake.
