    Super liens? Wonderful. Greed isn’t in the Constitution, nor is it in the Bible.

    The time to stand up and fight back is coming.

    $305 million MORE from casinos and horse racing to dumb down Georgia and super expand the edu-bureaucracy but not one stinkin’ road. Where was transportation on that poll wish list ?

    Oh man. My family had a set of Monopoly rules known as ‘cutthroat’ to all our friends and neighbors. They were designed to speed the game along while creating as much capitalistic chaos as possible. Side agreements, immunity agreements, rent to own, pawn. We used all the tools in capitalism’s arsenal to crush the weak. Incidentally, the speed and chaos also made it easy to steal money from ‘the pot’ and others piles.

        It does bring out the worst in people. (or best depending on how you look at it) When my wife was just a friend, she learned this the hard way. There has never been a single board game in our house. She says my family and I cheat too much.

    That story of the GA state trooper who set up a gofundme account for the 4 kids who lost both parents in a wreck has now reached over $350,000. Truly remarkable.
