Dick builds the bestest straw man ever

I can only hope that there aren't any "liberal weenies" who reply, thus humoring this pathetic attempt to grab attention.

In fact, I thought long and hard before even bringing it up here at the blog, but it's worth having a look just to see what ridiculous lengths some will go to demonize their (imagined) enemy.

Just a taste:

Why are you willing to have a loon like Howard “Yah-Yah” Dean as your leader? The man is so out of touch with the average American that he couldn’t find the mainstream with a flashlight.

Why do you go mute over your poster boy, Sen. Ted Kennedy, whenever I mention his past behavior?

And are you aware that you couldn’t get a single one of your current candidates for president elected dogcatcher, let alone head of the free world any place south of Richmond or east of Arizona?

It actually goes downhill from there, resorting to the usual Islam-bashing and race-baiting.

After all this, Dick wants our input. "
I eagerly await your response. I just hope I don’t upchuck my biscuits and gravy."

I can only hope and pray that nobody obliged his request. Because the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference.

Decades after the horses have left the barn

A committee is formed to decide whether the door should be closed. This is how progress is measured in Gwinnett County--we've gone from a shamelessly pro-development government (under Wayne Hill) to a shamelessly pro-development government that pretends like it might be persuaded to care, given some more time to think about it.

Gwinnett's study committee on impact fees started Wednesday searching for questions.

The answers will come later, officials said, but first the eight men brainstormed on the kind of information they will need and how it will come to them.

Wednesday's session was the first for the Impact Fee Study and Advisory Panel, named by the Board of Commissioners last month to give an opinion on whether Gwinnett should charge developers to pay for infrastructure such as roads.
