McEnroe: Very Little Local Love for Whitewater Middle School....

People of Fayette County, please try to acknowledge beyond a simple news article the truly great accomplishments at Whitewater Middle School. For the years that I have been teaching here in Fayette, I have overheard too many people from other schools say that Whitewater sports were good because they have the "country kids". Seriously?!? If so, then maybe PTC should re-evaluate what direction their kids are heading. Beyond the numerous articles on the success of the middle school sports teams- fairly consistently- NOW the school has been honored with a 2009 Georgia Schools of Excellence. Actually from the top 10 OVERALL scores based on academic achievement, Whitewater Middle was the #3 ranked school in the entire state and #1 middle school. Not too shabby.... Just a little FYI, the 2009 Spring CRCT scores for Whitewater were 100% passing Reading Assessment and 96% passing the Math Assessment (TOPS in this county)...

Bonkers: Unemployment payments

Georgia never has enough money to support her people who lose their job.

These people now on unemployment were working just before they filed since one can not draw unemployment nor be counted as unemployed unless you file for unemployment when you are laid off.

I was totally amazed that fellow employees turned him in. The most they would have done in the distant past was ask him to voluntarily abandon the flight.

“It's way different than Dad's bill. Dad's bill was a single-payer, and frankly I'm a single-payer. I've seen what the Canadians do, the French do, the British, the Germans and the Japanese, and it works. I've always felt: Get what it is that works.”

S. Lindsey: This is an example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail

"Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years."

palmtreedoc: Is 'Charity' Only Possible Through Government Mandate?

When did we as a society decide that compassion and benevolence are only possible through government mandates? Maybe it comes down to the Philosophy 101 question "are people inherently good or evil?". I and many conservatives tend to be optimists, but Pelosi knows you are inherently evil. One thing I can guarantee to you is that government is inherently wasteful.

On altogether too often a frequency, Fayette County politicians (and elsewhere) speak of passionate commitment only to betray us with arrogant ignorance and, more importantly, refusing to do the people's will. Some are thinly veiled profiteers (Bob Sprayberry) and others are mental lightweights (Carol "Big Box" Fritz).

and symbolized the collapse of a system of government and a philosophy that simply could not sustain itself. Those brave people that protested and died in order to rid their lands of government imposed parasitic ideas of wealth distribution and alike are truly heroes. They understood that living under a such government forced a way of life that suppressed the natural abilities of man to move forward to create better conditions. They also knew that government is not the solution for all problems. They further knew that there would be a cycle of good times as well as lean and yet in spite this; they still yearned for a form of government that would free them.

Davids mom: Health care - Tea Party Proponent

It's been an interesting day with the Tea Party demonstrators at the capital regarding their opposition to the proposed health care reform bill - and the AMA and ARRP announcing their support of the proposed bill. Also, the charge that the 'Republican' support does not want the elimination of 'pre-conditions'. (Insurance companies ability to deny health coverage due to pre-conditions). It makes one want to try to read certain sections for clarity.
