Ding Dong the TSPLOST is Dead (For Now)

Great story in the paper today with all the bureaucrats whining about the funding they “lost” with the landslide defeat of the TSPLOST in the July 31, 2012 primary.  Like all good bureaucrats, every pothole they failed to repair using money already budgeted for the purpose will be blamed on you, the taxpayer and voter,...

Twitter, Facebook, or Blog as a Real Republican

If you have been wondering where I have been, then you must not be following me on twitter as @litag8r or on FaceBook.  However robust and instant those platforms are, they don’t provide the space to make a complicated point.  This Blog does.  Look for more to come. But for today, many thanks to Governor...

Don’t Panic–Demand Reductions from the Top Down

You have heard me say before that when government has to reduce spending, they do so in the way that is most inconvenient to the public.  The normal way to take care of budget shortfalls in government is to raise taxes.  Almost all the Republicans have agreed not to do that now.  In our area,...

Nathan Resigns!

It is with mixed feelings that I watched Georgia 9th District Congressman Nathan Deal resign this morning at the Gainesville Civic Center.  I really hate to see such a persuasive advocate leave Congress at a time that is so critical to the Nation’s future.  However, I understand that one “nay” vote won’t mean much if...

RINO ALERT: Recession Parks & Libraries

When you don’t have any money, do you go on vacation?  When your home is in foreclosure, do you go buy some new jewelery?  So why in the midst of the worst recession since the 1930’s Great Depression is Hall County Government putting a library or a park on every street corner?  (Don’t give me...

Joe Biden: ‘Washington right now is broken’

So Washington is in “deep trouble” unless it attacks ballooning federal deficits?  Is this an attempted suicide?  Has he talked to his boss about this? Biden on capital: ‘Washington right now is broken’ – Yahoo! News

Its Scott Brown, Stupid!

Americans don’t like being told what to do.  Period.  Dimocrats want to tell others what to do because they think they know better than the poor proletariat what is good for “the people.”  RINOs want to tell others what to do because they forget they are supposed to be Republicans and they still think like...

CAUTION DAWSONVILLE MOTORISTS!!!!

As you can see from the following story, Joe “Cha-Cha-Cha-Chia” Biden, will be in Dawsonville tomorrow.  I don’t know why (and don’t care), but if you will be driving or walking near a roadway take cover during his visit.  His fleet of Secret Service Agents has a record of being involved in vehicular mahem–killing at...

Zoller leaving WDUN for new FM station

Good Luck Martha!  My car could never pick up WDUN anyhow. gainesvilletimes.com – Zoller leaving WDUN for new FM station

Dumb Name AND $5M?

Is there a good reason why Dimocrats need to name things with grandiose titles for no reason?  Why change the name of Fair Street School to “Fair Street International Baccalaureate World School?”  What the heck?  The word baccalaureate is defined by Webster’s International Dictionary as “the degree of bachelor conferred by universities and colleges.”  Is...
