  1. May the good lord save us from these 20 something, know it all, snowflakes. #StopChalkViolence #ChalkFreeZones #ChalkWordsHurt
  2. I really don't see parking as a major issue, of course you may have to walk a very small distance, say 30 yards to at most 100 yards. Heck, when they have the car shows, they close off a large part of the parking, yet people manage to park and see the cars.
  3. Here is what I'm waiting to see, whether CEO (and general dirty tricks flunky) Brett Smith's lawsuit comes to court before the lawsuit filed 2 yrs ago (or whenever it was) comes to trial. Let me see if I got the facts correct. The Airport Authority & IBA are currently involved with a lawsuit by private citizens. The county of Paulding is planning to sue the AA & IBA. Propeller Investments has filed suit against the AA, IBA & Paulding County. Propeller violated the contract 1st, by never putting the 1/2 million dollars in an escrow account. The AA & IBA and Propeller di
  4. Things have changed. Boys are now girls. Girls are now boys. White people are now black people. Cuba is lecturing the US about people's rights. You can now be called whatever you wish, no matter what the facts are. I wish to be called, "The Great Sex Machine" or "Wow, What A Man".
  5. Who wants to bet that there aren't even 10 people employed by Propeller Investments? Heck, I would be shocked if there were more than 5. They don't even have enough people to have a flunky to do the dirty work, or does Mr. Smith enjoy doing that himself. Good job bringing such a fine person to our county. He is a real ass.....et.
  6. I think it is a good thing, but I also think that if the person who wanted to open a brew pub was not a local, it would most likely be a different story. BUT, at least they are moving in the right direction. As Al noted, there is no question the city was as unhelpful and unwelcoming as they could be to the Cajun place. The man had fresh Gulf shrimp brought in twice a week, made a great shrimp po-boy. Maybe he should have opened a BBQ place, instead of that strange food.
  7. Yep, true story. Good food, but the city of Dallas did all they could to make it tough on him. Maybe this news is a sign that the city of Dallas is finally moving into the 20th century....if you are from here. Yes, I'm aware it's the 21st century, but I didn't want to scare the Dallas officials.
  8. What drugs are they needing tested? I haven't tried any of these new ones, but if it will help....
  9. This stuff started when parents quit teaching their kids that old saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me". Old sayings get to be old sayings, because they are true.
  10. Poor poor Brett Smith. I guess he had to sue to recover monies used in printing and making copies of private citizens personal information, for distribution. Yep, that's the kind of guy I want my county to have a 40 year contract with.
  11. Poopy Poopy Poopy, what are you doing, searching for my comments from a month ago to try and start trouble?
  12. Bhutan's economy is based on agriculture, forestry, tourism and the sale of hydroelectric power to India. Agriculture provides the main livelihood for 55.4 percent of the population. Agrarian practices consist largely of subsistence farming and animal husbandry. Handicrafts, particularly weaving and the manufacture of religious art for home altars, are a small cottage industry. A landscape that varies from hilly to ruggedly mountainous has made the building of roads and other infrastructure difficult and expensive.
  13. Yeh, a population of less than 800,000, who exist by farming and making handicrafts. Nothing wrong with that, but they think that it's a good thing to be 100% organic farming. I guess they figure that the starving people don't need to eat.
  14. "Not one, not two but three Starbucks operate from a single intersection in the hot, sprawling city, the Houston Chronicle reported Friday."
  15. Just to be clear, my issue with having a coroner has nothing to do with anyone who is running for that office or has held that office in Paulding County. I couldn't name anyone involved, now or in the past. It is the system it's self that I object to.
  16. I've voted for Democrats, I've voted for Republicans, I've voted for everything in-between. I've voted for men, I've voted for women, I've voted for hetrosexuals, I've voted for hetrosexuals who later were found to be homosexual. I don't think I've knowingly voted for a homosexual, but I would if I thought they were the best choice. I've voted for white people, black people and other races. None of that makes a difference to me, it's the person themselves that I care about.
  17. Three things. 1. Just because the state is behind and you have to have a coroner, doesn't mean you can't have a professional medical examiner. 2. Yes, both the county coroner and county sheriff office's are hold overs from the 1800's. Both need to be revamped as times have changed drastically. 3. I decided not to list this one.
  18. Yes, someone else explained it to me. For whatever reason, I wasn't understanding your points. I knew this was not just a Paulding thing, as you noted, it is a holdover from waaaay back.
  19. Ohhhh, got it. I understand. Yeh, sometimes being a Georgian is tough, especially when our legislature is in session. (and not at the strip clubs)
  20. Most of us understand "progress" and I think most of us understand a mistake can be made. But I think we all can agree that in today's world, lack of common sense, pride and ability in one's work has sadly dropped to a new low. When you have so many different companies working near or around your home, for that long, you have more risk for stupid stuff to happen and affect you negatively.
  21. Not sure what point you're making. Progressive states, counties and cities have gone to a trained, educated, non elected, medical examiner for over 50 yrs. The coroner's position is a hold over from the days when the local doc also served as coroner, back before medical science, forensic science and criminal science made the huge strides they have made in the past 50 yrs. Think about it, you used to go to old Doc Adams for everything from the sniffles to life threatening illness, but today, due to the huge changes and strides in medicine, you often are referred to a specialist. (well
  22. 2017?? I got a feeling that didn't give Lady Raider the warm fuzzies.
  23. We (the county) seem to have an aversion to hiring trained professionals for important positions, instead of qualifications, it seems that being born in the county, who your family is and what church you attend are the main criteria for getting the job. Let me be very clear, I'm not saying or implying that anyone running for coroner, does not have training or qualifications. But there is a reason that progressive cities and counties moved to the position of medical examiner. Ohhh well, if the earth is only 6,000 yrs old, we got a looooooong time before we catch up with the rest of the
