Kent 1 year, 4 months ago on VIDEO: Ga. girl bitten while feeding dolphin at SeaWorld

The parents of this child are absolute idiots. They are too stupid to advise their child to follow instructions, and the child seems to have inherited intelligence from the parents. I saw part of an interview on the news of the child's mom and she was so distraught that SeaWorld did not tell them an infection may occur at the bite site. It is amazing the parents of this child had enough intelligence to reproduce an offspring.

Kent 1 year, 4 months ago on Ga. immigration law bogs down medical licensing

Jan, bless his heart, is where I always to to for entertainment purposes. Talking to him is equivalent to calling my representative Hank "the island is tilting" Johnson and trying to have a rational discussion based on facts without the progressive Obama worshipers canned talking points . Do the Republicans BS us too? You bet they do and Saxby and Johnny are among the worst, but the Dems carry it to a new level.

Kent 1 year, 4 months ago on New budget, service districts could mean higher taxes

You must be loony tunes with such common sense, because commissioners like my soon to be ex-commissioner is far more intelligent than us simple minded voters when making a logical analysis of what and how much we need as far as parks, and libraries, and firemen and police. The present chairman can not efficiently utilize the police force and associated costs with fewer numbers instead of building less police stations and hiring less staff and policemen. Ex chairman Bannister stated at a meeting I attended that the commissioners have to provide for all the services the people demand. The concept of high efficiency is not entered into the equation.

Kent 1 year, 4 months ago on New budget, service districts could mean higher taxes

My commissioner is so proud of the excessive libraries and parks added during his time in office and the bills keep coming in for maintenance and staffing forever. He has not grasped the concept of wants vs. what is actually affordable and needed. Even with his scattering of taxpayer dollars throughout his district, it wasn't enough to buy enough votes for his reelection. Now he wants funding for a paid Gwinnett lobbyist at the capital to bring in more taxes for goodies he wants. Tax and spend--tax and spend.

Kent 1 year, 4 months ago on County officially closes '01 sales tax program

SPLOST forever adds more government employees and facilities which the taxpayer has to fund via additional taxation. Sort of like me giving you a horse for a penny on the dollar and through your simple minded thinking you think it is a great deal. Then you have to feed the critter, have a pasture to put it on, build a barn to house it, pay the vet bills, buy a truck and trailer to transport it, buy a saddle and bridle, etc. etc. To add insult to injury all these additional upkeep items require you to pay more taxes. But that is great, because it helps policemen and firemen, the environment, and of course it is done for the children. Parks and libraries are grossly overbuilt in this county and such projects as Beaudreau having a 400 thousand dollar tunnel built at his favorite golf course hang out waste millions of dollars each year. The commissioners love SPLOST because it provides a funding source to buy votes.

Kent 1 year, 5 months ago on Gwinnett Republicans to host 'family voting day' trolley tour

I wander if Mike has always called himself a Republican? His Democrat style spending and involving government in roles which it should not be involved in, has cost the taxpayers millions now and far into the future. He is a political wanna-be rubbing noses with those in the party he thinks will give him political capital down the road. The likes of him have ruined the credibility of the so called conservative Republican party. I would just as soon vote for a Democrat rather than this rino. At least with a Democrat you know what you are getting up front. Woodall looses credibility when he associates with this corrupt looser.

Kent 1 year, 6 months ago on Sheriff's deputy faces DUI charge after wreck

If the pay and benefit package is so low then they do have the option of entering another profession. That is my option where I work. Just because it has gone for decades does not make the practice acceptable. Don't give me that "poor ole cop does not make any money" routine.

Kent 1 year, 6 months ago on Sheriff's deputy faces DUI charge after wreck

The policy of allowing police and sheriff deputies to commute to their homes with the county provided police car @ taxpayer expense should not be allowed. They should provide their own transportation and associated expenses for getting to their job like employees in the private sector. I know of many Gwinnett county cops who live outside Gwinnett and get to mooch off the taxpayers for their commuting expenses.

Kent 1 year, 6 months ago on Gas prices unlikely to fall as fast as oil

Nancy, Barack, and Harry, need to have a press conference and explain how the Bushes are responsible for these outrageous gasoline prices and a subsidy program similar to liheap, snap, tafdc, and the free Obama phone needs to be implemented. We paid much more for gas when Bush was in the white house.
