      Years of practicing on milk stools, is my bet.

      You can take the bumpkin out of the country, but you cain’t take the country out of the bumpkin.

    Did anyone get a message from Shep for Rep that he wanted to Scarp [sic] the Birthday tax? I would be all for it, just as soon as I figure out what scarp means ;-).

    • Lawton Sack says:

      Well, scarp means: a long steep slope or cliff at the edge of a plateau or ridge; usually formed by erosion

      Maybe he was using it as the verb form to mean to throw off a steep slope of cliff.

      🙂

          Every Rep Candidate wants to be the first one to cut a tax, and then also take the credit for coming up with the latest coolest tax ever, on another day, one that everyone will gleefully pay.

          I was getting my tags come time back up in the year. I bumped into a buddy and noticing my tags he mentioned it was another fee we pay. I told him, yep, and I was watching some IED explosions along the roadway on YouTube, over in the war zones. I said most of the roads were in poor repair, and those bombs would shake a camera a long ways off, no telling of what it did to the folks that hit it. I said as long as I can move my vehicles around on the road system we have, without nobody planting bombs all up and down them, I’ll pay that lil dab of money.
          To say that the state is in a tight situation for money, that the car tax brings in 627 million in tax and should be abolished, all while the state has had to make deep cuts already, is a zig zag rivaling O. J.’s greatest run.
          Not to mention the underwriting cost of dismantling the present system, and starting up the “sales tax” replacement. Millions will be spent in the wash.
          How much will be saved? Well, you’re still gonna have to have revenue, so figure how much it will cost to get back to the same amount of revenue as you had before the “great fix”………..Richardson had the “Great Plan” in mind, wonderful rhetoric and campaign fodder, but practical application is always the devil in the details. Costly too.
          Amazing how so many years ago, men with funny hairdos sat around and started a system which has held up so well, and assembled , so that fine tuning could be done along the way.
          When you’re down at the bottom where the rubber hits the road, it makes it tough to operate a system with constant tampering and adjustment from outside.
          I’m not here to argue all the merits, I’m just sayin, before you enter on to the path of “change”, just remember, sometimes it takes a while just to get back to where you started from. “Change” has become old hat. Do something novel, like figure out how to cure cancer or something…….

    Sometimes you just have to let your children fail on their own to allow them the space to succeed on their own.

    Since no media were allowed into the caucus meeting, I imagine there was a fiery debate behind closed doors over who had the best fake boobs over at the Pink Pony: Tiffany or Chrystal.

    • Romegaguy says:

      The debate centered on which of the numerous spas that have opened up in the land of Sonny and Erick is best for relief.

      Macon, or Middle Georgia, where every day can have a happy ending.

    Far be it from me to speak on behalf of Jesus. I wanted to post “better luck next time” on Glenn Richardson’s facebook wall

    Trust me, IndyInjun dude. No one, and I mean no one, has ever “caught more heat” on here than me. That’s ok ’cause I am naturally cool to begin with. I can handle it, in other words. And of course I’m tons smarter than 98% of the kiddies here. Being just children, and thus not at full mental capacities yet, it’s hardly setting any bar very high. I know my limitations, put it that way. 😉

      Most of the front page posters were smart enough to know to make the majority of their posts about Georgia politics.

    There’s a old story about a man who was brought into a rural Georgia court room on a rape charge. The Judge asked the defendant how he wanted to plea, either “guilty” or “not guilty”. The accused said he wanted to plead “insanity”. This surprised the Judge and he said “You wish to plead insanity to a rape charge?” and the defendant replied, “yes sir, your honor, I’m just crazy about that stuff.”

    I think our GA legislators are mostly all crazy about the “stuff” they can get in Atlanta for free, simply by donning their legislator badge when they enter the State Capitol. They have made our Gold Dome a Gold Club. But perhaps we are being too rough on them, as which among us could resist temptation when it”s flaunted and dangled in front of your face at every instance. Normally sane folks, these State legislators come from all walks of life, some are insurance salesmen, some are real estate agents, accountants, etc. but when they hit the Atlanta city limits, they are transformed into Super Studs, capable of acts that would curl the toes of their home town Sunday school classes. No one has ever exposed their sordid activities to the full light of day, and now that some light is being shined on them, their answer is to censor the messenger. Erick is providing a true service to all Georgians, and may he continue to do so.

    I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during that meeting. I wonder if any of the speakers gave apologies, or did they just go on talking as if nothing really happened (other than Richardson of course.)
