FREE SPEECH for the week of Sept. 24 – Sept. 30

Free Speechers, here’s your “have at it” page again.

Post on topic or off topic or make up your own topic.

Here are some anonymous contributions that showed up in my email last week to get your pumps primed.

========================

I have some advice on how to fix our messed up schools and budget deficit. Don’t cut the teacher pay, but cut their extra supplement by 5%, start charging for school busses, collect all the money we are owed from the out of county kids who have been caught in our schools illegally and do NOT let them back in, quit letting kids go to different schools in the county with “special permission” as that is what messed up our schools to begin with, get rid of the senior tax exemption if they have grandkids living with them that are in our schools, and start charging the out of county teachers kids that go to our schools. Maybe even stop serving hot meals. Not popular decisions, but necessary to save our school system. There you have it, and the advice was free.

***

WOW,WOW,WOW. I just got put in the group that doesn’t pay federal income tax. The group that Romney says he doesn”t worry about because we expect the gov’t to take care us. My wife and I paid income tax until our retirement. Our retirement is not enough that we have to pay income tax. Mr. Romney, you really are out of touch with the lower middle class. I get nothing, natta, from the government; never have. Mr. Romney, you need to go into the cities and go to the poorer areas in the morning. You would see thousands of people going to work every morning on the subways and buses. Most of these folks go to jobs that do not pay a living wage. Mr. Romney, many of the folks clean homes, cars, offices, and have more than one generation living in a small apartment and they need government’s help. These folks furnish the young to fight our wars. How much is it worth to you, Mr. Romney, to have the poor kids to die in war so that you and the higher class won’t have to? You just lost our vote. — Senoia, Ga.

E-gad. Yet another, too lengthy, dissertation from that Mr Parker in Peachtee City. ENOUGH! Even the AJC limits letter, faxes and e-mails to so many words or less. His using The Citizen to hear himself talk (and voicing his political views among other things) is getting to be too much. Who made him king? I'm just about ready to just throw your paper in the trash when it shows up, because it is the same thing over and over (about the same stuff, from the same people). We are just WEARY of it. Must say, though, I love the editorial cartoons!

Thank you for the excellent article by Derek Wolter. It was superb. Kudos to you for giving us a good dose of thinking print.

========================

Free Speech is free for another week — have at it!

Floridians are so Patriotic!

On the way down to Marco Island I came across several overpasses on I-75 crowded with people waving the US flag and carrying signs saying “Impeach Now” and “No Amnesty”.

Some more Patriots!

Seems there are a few in Indiana and Chicopee Massachusetts, too. Sixty five percent of applications of unaccompanied minors have been granted asylum immediately in 2014 by ICE. Sixty five percent.

Seems Barry's good buddy Gov. Deval Patrick has been lying when he has said they will only stay 4 months and be deported. These local leaders are now faced with this fight against Barry's policies.

Listen to the BEST press conference EVER on this by the Mayor of Chicopee (2nd link below) about the impact on his small city and what the Dept. of Defense has said against using military bases for this purpose. Even the Dept. of Defense has come out against this.

This is disgusting that the feds are forcing this situation on a city of 55,000. On a side note, in 1964 & 1965, the back yard of our home bordered the security perimeter fence with Westover AFB. 91 Mandalay Rd. I went to school in the Chicopee school system.

LIES FROM DAVID STUDDARD

*** RINO ALERT ***

HERE IS THE EMAIL I RECEIVED FROM LAMAR COUNTY REPUBLICAN KENT KINGSLEY:

Dear Friends,

I have tried to stay out of the hotly contested state senate race, sure I have my favorite, but I haven't "involved" myself, until now. When I ran for Congress everything I said or in any my paid advertisements was the truth to the best of my knowledge. If a candidate for office can't tell the truth, just think what they will be like if elected.

Today I received a mailer and in the Barnesville paper was the same advertisement titled "David Studdard has been endorsed by these Lamar County Republican Leaders." There is the picture and names of four people. Let me tell you who has "endorsed Mr. Studdard" :

1. Frank Abbott (R), Lamar County Clerk. Frank is a great guy, we graduated from high school together and has a great wife and family. The problem? He is a life long democrat and has always been elected as a democrat.

2. John Stuckey, former Chair of the state party. I have been told he lives in Coweta County and since 1996 I have never seen him at the Lamar republican party.

3. Alton Russell, former Third District Chair. He is from Columbus.

4. Mark Butler, state Labor Commissioner. He is from Carrolton.

Those are the endorsements of Lamar County republican leaders? Three from outside the district and not from Barnesville and an elected democrat. How sad.

We must insist our elected leaders do better. The choice is up to you.

I am sure they were (are) speechless. It just feels like every federal protection agency is being undermined by....the effin' POTUS. This is so out of control. ICE, Border Patrol, FBI, TSA...and on and on to state and local. How long before all the above and ALPA say WTF and just shut down and let this just pollute this country to the point of no return? Or, better yet, I just say get the heavy weapon out...ALPA can threaten strike. I would back 'em to our non-existent borders if they did.

moe,

The Railway Labor Act would prevent a strike for matters like this; however, those "bus" drivers can exercise their muscle by raising this issue to the public's attention. It would make a great national news story.

It is an out of control free-for-all where even pro immigration liberals are banging poor ole Barry.

BTW, I see more left leaning talking-head shows that are acknowledging that Obama's speeches on immigration have helped to foster this current wave of illegals.

Immigration Reform

Had the leaders that are paid with taxpayer money addressed our antiquated immigration laws, we might have been able to handle this crisis differently. Our government is following our law. These children, families are REFUGEES from a country south of the US that is experiencing 'war', 'terrorism' turmoil. Remember Cuba? Los Angeles accommodated many of their refugees in the late sixties. No one is lying about where these persons may have to go under current law. All of the victims of Katrina did not end up in a climate similar to Louisiana. They will go where they can be accommodated until they are repatriated under current law. (Deported)

Coweta Superior Court Justice?

Joseph Brian Shelnutt, 17, last Sept., driving 1990 Toyota 4Runner, charged with vehicular homicide by vehicle in the 1st degree, DUI under age of 21, reckless driving, underage possession of alcohol, failure to wear seat belt and laying drags.

3 friends with him. Austin Walker Pope, 16, in front with driver, also not wearing seat belt, was ejected with driver and killed. 2 other passengers were injured. He had swerved back and forth on the road, running off both sides multiple times, before overturning several times. This all happened around 3AM.

Superior Court Judge Allen Keeble, last Wednesday, sentenced Shelnutt to 10 years with five to serve in prison for vehicular homicide. Those five years could be suspended if Shelnutt completes probation boot camp through the Ga. Dept. of Corrections. Judge Keeble also gave Shelnutt two special conditions for his probation. He must spend 500 hours publicly speaking at schools about the accident and how he killed his friend and he is not allowed any contact with Pope's family. He was sentenced to 12 months for the remaining counts, but each will run concurrent to his first count of vehicular homicide.

This 17 year old will serve no jail time for the murder of a 16 year old, if he completes boot camp.

Judge Keeble is a retired Superior Court judge who no longer holds public office and is compensated on a per diem basis, plus expenses, in a addition to his pension.

On the surface seems as if he is getting off easy - maybe he is

But I think I know what the judge is thinking. He is trying to prevent a repeat by some other 17 year old. Everybody knows the formula of young driver with 3 pals, speed and alcohol at 3AM will happen again, so the judge thinks that maybe, just maybe the next 17 year old will have heard young Mr. Shelnutt speak at his school earlier and may not act like a complete moron that night as he is driving his friends home from a party - or maybe one of the passengers or someone else would have heard the young man's horrible story and intervene with a designated driver or simply taking his keys away and calling his parents.

Young Mr. Shelnutt will reach many more teens in 500 hours of speaking out than he would have by sitting in jail for 5 or 10 years. 500 hours would be 1 one-hour school assembly a week for 10 years! Wow, he could hit every school in Georgia before he's done. And for some people, admitting your mistakes in front of a group of your peers is more difficult than sitting in jail.

Of course he's already shown us what a dope he is, so he may blow the whole thing off, violate the parole deal and get tossed away for 5 years anyway. Who knows.

You mean like an OJ rerun? Not guilty first/responsible next

Could happen that way. Of course the kid that got killed was not participating in the drunken speed drive, as he was no doubt sober and innocent and not driving, by the way, so he was killed in the prime of his life by the 17 year old driver and deserves (or his parents do) compensation for an innocent life lost . Be careful though, 2 witnesses in the back seat could give some details that could make him an accessory. I am so saddened by this unnecessary loss of a young life.

I'm guessing $2million, maybe more if he was already accepted at Harvard or West Point.

So sad, so preventable. Can we just teach that speed kills, alcohol at age 17 certainly doesn't help. And BTW, allowing teens to speed around in golf carts at age 14 is not good training for driving later. Is there some reason you kids can't ease up on the accelerator?

I really hope something positive emerges from this tragedy - like the kid doing the 500 hours and doing it with class and acting responsible.

So what happens to his ability

to drive? Nothing is stated that he loses his drivers license. Do we assume that is a given? Or, to do his 500 hours, is he going to be allowed to drive? I am going to assume travel time is allowed as part of the hours, too, which could cut the actual speaking time way down. This judge will not be around in 5-10 years still doing the double dip, I would surmise, either.

Boot camp max. around 18 months from what I hear. It involves working during the day at the correctional training facility or in the local community performing public service work. Risk reduction programming, particularly in the area of substance abuse, is provided in the evening hours. Whatever that all means.

Shelnutt's parents own a country store, Cy. To err on the side of caution, for the safety of the public, I think prison time should have been at least a part of his first time offender guilty plea. My guess, he will fail at boot camp and end up in the slammer. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, if I were the judge.

Let's just hope he understands it. And if he doesn't, the judge come down hard.

I just know I it was my kid that died, I'd be mad at the sentence.

Maybe a Seinfeld sentence. 10 years as the family's butler/maid.

Does Fayette Welcome Diversity?

We all like to think of the communities of Fayette County as great places filled with community spirit that are welcoming places and receptive to newcomers. But in an increasingly diverse America, I wonder how true that is, given Fayette’s conservative leanings.

Recently while visiting my sister I watched a TV program with my teenaged niece that made me reflect a bit. The show is called “The Fosters” on ABC Family Channel and I recommend it. It is about two married lesbian women, one white, the other African American, and their five adopted teenaged kids who are also ethnically diverse. The show depicts their triumphs and struggles as they work to build a family together in Southern California.

After watching the show with my niece I wondered, if this were a real family and they moved from California to Fayette County would the community welcome them? Would they fit in?

I would like to think so, but I definitely fear otherwise. So I’m putting it out for some of you long-time observers of the Fayette scene for your thoughts.

Would such a family be welcomed in Fayette?

Diversity in Fayette

I moved from California to Fayetteville ten years ago. My family is classified as African American. We have relatives who are Irish; Portuguese; Mexican; and Asian American. We live in a community that has welcomed us with open arms. We participate in actvities and events with little or NO feeling of unacceptance. I am sure that there are individuals who harbor prejudices just as we do - but as far as calling Fayetteville home - it is! The conservatives (the majority) express their political beliefs - but we have found their southern hospitality to be inclusive.

Hi, and thanks for responding and giving your experience. It confirms what I had hoped.

As a straight, white male I have become sadly aware over the years that the way I perceive things may be very different than the lived experience of someone else who is not of the same background. So that's why I asked the question. I think its an important question to ask.

I would really like to hear from a same gender couple on what their experience has been.

LOL! Unfortunately if you read some of the comments in some article blogs, you wouldn't feel that everything is so pleasant in Fayette County. Individuals feel free to express their innermost feelings here - but my opinion is based on my personal experiences during the past 10+ years. There are individuals, organizations, and religious groups that express love to and accept love from everyone - there are those who don't.

Feeding Fowl Fouls Battery Park

For the second time in less than 2 weeks, there has been a woman on her golf cart, with her old man sitting idly watching, feeding the ducks and geese. This is no ordinary bring the kids and throw a few pieces of stale bread feeding.

Golf cart #10303, whoever is riding you around, tell this wacko woman to stop. The large bucket on the back of the cart with multiple large bowls that she uses to scoop out and throw and dump this pellet food to all the fowl in the area has created....you fill in the blank. Yesterday, she had over 50 fowl following her around in one small area. On the banks, in the water, she is throwing this everywhere. Yesterday, there was a young mother with her toddler watching all this thinking it was just the cat's meow, and the toddler reached down and picked up the poop and put in her mouth. Mommy dearest was too busy watching the ducks to notice till after the little one's hand went in her mouth. Not to mention they were standing in it, too.

Let's review the germs the waste causes shall we? E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and Cryptosporidium, to name a few.

She doesn't stop in one spot, either. Travels along the path in the cart, stops and dumps this feed wherever she sees a fowl. Which, of course, brings the rest of the fowl family out for the feast.

We do not need a ferocious flock of feathery fowl on the Fourth. Finished.

4th Studdard campaign call today

It's 3:05 and I just got the 4th campaign call today for Studdard on my home phone. We are getting at least 2 a day, even when we don't pick up. Earlier today I told the campaign worker that I would vote for whoever opposed Studdard, even if it was Hillary Clinton and stop calling me. Another campaign worker quoting the exact same pre-written dialog regarding "republican survey" for Studdard just called again. Good luck to whoever is running against him, you have my vote!

Got to give him credits for effort. He was campaigning door to door in my hood today. I was out at the park with kid2. He wanted to place a sign in my yard, but wife1 told him to come back and ask me first. Wife1 did say that mrs Studdard was working harder than Mr. Studdard.

Marty better not expect to win based on the May primary. Better get going soon.

Barlow endorsed Studdard?

The very same Studdard who stood up to leave the BOC meeting last week and Barlow bellowed out (in the middle of the meeting, mind you) for him to sit down and gave him his political endorsement of him right in the middle of the BOC meeting? (Did you not see that?)

The very same Studdard who whizzed in the parking lot in the town square?

The very same Studdard who had his mother doing nonstop robocalls day and night?

Yes, Marty you should be afraid, very afraid.

How many wives do you have, daddyo?

Cy & Biloxi

Good memories of Biloxi--went to a 2 week school at the Air Force Base there, had class from 6am til noon--rest of the day to wander & play! Remember a restaurant at the end of a pier and a great whole grilled flounder for lunch! Also seafood places that would invite you in to demonstrate technique for eating mudbugs (crawfish) and let you sample all you wanted! Great experience!

Hey Cy

That's more like it. I mean what is this some side show, or what? (51 now)

I never asked, as these freekin' politics get in the way, but did you catch any big ones on your trip and did you ever get the house finished? See the 300 pounder I caught last week? I'm all tuckered out.

Choctoowawhatchi bridge? Is that some gift from the Punjabi peoples?

Oh Cy, by the by, you don't have to type in the time. Cal's Timex does that for us. I mean, you can if you really want to, but really, you don't have to.:)

Fish'n wasn't that good this year. A few jacks, one tiny Spanish Mackerel, some lady fish. I suspect it had something to do was the big flood that Destin had around the last part of April. I did catch a Cobia in the surf which was different.

Anyways, I'm local for a while but may have to jet out to Hong Kong and look at a Rolls Royce engine facility.

Oh, about your avatar…..it could be said that you are "bottom fishing". :-)

Have you ever eaten at Randy's Donuts? One of my nieces just graduated from Univ. of Az. and is moving to San Diego with her girlfriend. She said she needs to "rest her brain" after all that studying. Oh, brother...

Just got mine for today, makes you want to vote for the other guy doesn't it? It's still early though, we'll start getting calls from Marty Harbin too. Hmm....maybe I vote for the one that contacts me in person! You know to discuss positions on issues, or maybe he comes knocking on my door.

Guess we can count that out.

PTC O I think

door knocking is a thing of the past just about everywhere now, except maybe a really small town where you know all your neighbors. Most everywhere now, no one even answers their door when someone knocks, unless they are expecting someone. You are right, it sure would make for better elections.

Well, we know now no winner in NY today. 9 millions bucks in bets on him and California Chrome loses. Did you see Frank Sinatra Jr. singing New York New York? We now know what old blue eyes would have looked like without the toupee.

MLC - You're right on

about that.

No, I didn't have a chance to watch the race today, it's always the long one that brings them down. Horses aren't raised to be long haulers these days, just sprinters. It take a really remarkable animal to win the Triple Crown,looks like we'll have to wait a little longer to see this once more before we die.

Do you remember when Frank Jr. was kidnapped? If my memory serves me one local Atlanta hotel played a role in that, but can't remember exactly as it was the early 60's. I think the captured the guys that did it here or something like that.

PTC O I remember

vaguely hearing about it, but since I am now heading into my own early 60's, it was a little before my time. Growing up, my father, (who was Irish) idolized the Kennedys, as did just about all the Irish. He never liked Sinatra due to that mafia/rat pack connection to the 3 brothers so Sinatra was never a fave in our family. However, I do remember him belting out some of his tunes in the shower. Funny how we remember little stuff like that. Even funnier is how he thought he sounded just like him...in the shower.

Anyhow, my niece owns a thoroughbred and when I see those skinny legs on top of those huge torsos and necks, I always think these creatures were never built to run like they do in these races. Those legs just look so undersized for what they have to carry, then add a rider on top and all that equipment, and, well, I just kinda feel sorry for them. I used to go to the track up north and place some bets, but left it all at the track usually. No fun in that so I gave it up.

Just couldn't resist could you? Even in an obit blog you had to
slide in one of your usual little tidbits.
"Many families who returned "home" after fleeing the South in the 40's owe Mr. Dunham a ton of gratitutde for his ethics, dignity and perservence (whatever that is)-heavily endowed with love for all."

A low even for you. Mr. Dunham was an honorable and ethical man with dignity and perserverance and he showed all these attributes to one and all. I think he would probably resent your adding in your little snide remark. Shame on you.

Another sample of Mytimites lack of class – to even post this on a blog that honors such a wonderful person. You are a little too young to carry any guilt about the flight of blacks from the south in the 40’s.. I was directed by a prominent clergyman (white) to go and talk with Mr, Dunham. With your usual lack of comprehension – you used the same words I used to honor him, but because those words come from the mouth of a ‘black’ woman, they are snide?
You are sick – bless your heart.

FYI:

1. steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success."his perseverance with the technique illustrates his single-mindedness"

No you are the sick one with a one track mind. And if your

memory served you better you would remember that I am anything but too young to remember--older than you. It was not the words you used to honor that fine gentleman but the fact that you had to throw that in about the blacks 'fleeing in the 40's which had nothing whatsoever to do with Mr. Nub and in that way dishonored him.

P.S. I know the meaning of perserverance and I actually do know how to spell it also. But of course your spelling in your first post was only a typing error in your rush to get your remark posted, as it always is when you make an error but when someone else does you love to jump in and correct them. Just giving you a taste of your own medicine.

Honoring Mr. Dunham, MLK, Julian Bond, etc.., etc., etc.

and many families who remained in the south; served in WWII, and maintained a loving attitude towards all Americans is taught in many 'black' homes. It was their effort and PERSERVERANCE that made returning 'home' a reality. You have nothing to give me. I'm proud to be who I am; I'm proud of the citizens of Fayette County; I'm proud to be an American. In the 40's , even if you're older than I am, we were too young to realize why there was The Great Migration. It is a part of history. It is a reality - and I for one, celebrate the progress that has been made since then. If you feel referring to progress regarding American history is 'snide' - that is your right. Bless your heart.

Another item on my list

to witness before I take that big jet ride in the sky. Let me see now.

Get to see a beautiful church being built over on Ebenezer. Check

Get to see the Red Sox show these new Braves how a World Champion team wins so that they can do the same, again, someday soon. Check

Get to see a lake turn into a wetlands in 3 short months. Check

Get to watch an airport runway be extended and paved next week. While in a golf cart. With a golf course behind me. And a 650 acre, 12 month old lake over my shoulder. Check check check check

Life in Peachtree City. Priceless
