— The local sports hall of fame is a joke. There are so many people inducted into the hall of fame that it seems like anyone who has ever played high school sports is put in the hall of fame.
— A quote from Alexander Tyler, a history professor from Scotland in 1787: “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
— We have to stop the way we do things in the U.S. We continue to vote for the politicians who give us the most money — whether it’s in the form of health care, welfare, jobs, education, grants, etc. But where is the money coming from? Who is footing the bill for all these programs? Don’t we ever stop and think? We just continue to have this “give me, give me” attitude without any comprehension of where the money comes from. Just as long as we get the money, we don’t care where the money comes from, but then we complain when we have to pay more taxes. America needs to wake up.
— The Georgia Legislature should consider not only taxing cigarettes a dollar per pack but tax all tobacco products. Another source of income would be to tax all alcoholic products. A suggestion would be to add one dollar tax for every 16 fluid ounces or less sold in sealed containers and one dollar for each drink of 16 fluid ounces or less served at bars and restaurants.
— I think Confederate Heritage Month is a terrible idea. We are honoring people who committed treason against the United States of America.
