You are not going to like hearing this, but its the truth - this is a direct and predictable result of increasing the number of women in the military. The core function of the military is to kill your enemy as efficiently as possible, and that is best accomplished by a cohesive unit. Now the armed services are treated as just another workplace, which they are not. The rationale for moving women into the combat arms is not to better accomplish the mission, it is to give them the necessary ticket punch that is a prerequisite to promotion. Period. I left the Marine Corps in the late 80s during the time when women were being aggressively recruited and deployed wherever possible, and I saw the deleterious affect that it had on units. Workcenter tension, preferential treatment, different standards, etc. You can begin the outraged posts now, but they do not alter the facts.
"Communities needs diverse housing - INCLUDING MULTI-FAMILY options - to attract various demographic markets to help drive a wide range of economic development factors!"
Could someone please translate that into a thought?
Thanks for the citation. The panic mongers are really their own worst enemy, because people can smell a fraud a mile away (Mr Gore). Any time someone spins me a doomsday story that requires immediate action based on incomplete or dubious data, I have a duty to be skeptical. Especially when it seems that the whole project is a Trojan Horse for the empowerment of the transnational elites - the Ted Turner/George Soros/UN Permanent Bureaucracy types.
Climate change is real. The climate is ALWAYS changing. The operative theory is that human activity is pushing the temperature higher. The fact is that the earth and its climate is a vastly more complex system than anything we can imagine, and there's damn little we can do to have any meaningful effect on it.
This campaign to 'do something' about climate change (not global warming anymore), is another example of not letting a perceived crisis go to waste. People are using this issue for their own ends. Politicians will derive increased power - researchers will get more grant money (job security), rent seekers like GE and Solyndra will feast off the taxpayers, etc.
The best clue to what is going on came early in the campaign when you hear the cult leader Al Gore howling that "the science is settled" "the time for debate is over!". In science, debate is NEVER over and NEVER settled. A proposition is either disproved or reinforced by observation and experiment.
Every generation produces nuts who try to get attention by predicting doomsday scenarios. Paul Ehrlich with the population/food crisis that never happened, Mayan calendars... I could add many more but I need to get to work.
What the bonehead Floyd didn't seem to realize is that by trying to support his candidate by whiny, passive/aggressive jabs at other posters, he only served to remind everyone of Mike's attitude when questioned. The Floydster no doubt saw himself as a valiant defender fighting the good fight, but comporting yourself like a cranky teenage girl isn't going to sway or convince anyone. Same thing goes for several other sycophants that were posting here in the last day or two. I'd call out the names but at this point I don't care enough to look for them.
I don't know a lot about Hunter - maybe he will be better or maybe not. But this election season has been about retribution so far. Voters made Mike pay for the stadium deal, the attitude, and most of all, another government incursion in the private marketplace with the garbage plan.
We all enjoy our blind hate w/ extra pickles and some fries. Yum
You can almost smell the desperation of these people. I have never seen so much coverage of and advertising for something like this. This thing is going down hard, and I can't recall seeing a single ad anywhere opposing it - that speaks volumes.
Also, the latest from Deal about finally removing the tolls on 400 had me laughing this morning. Can you imagine a more panicky response? Of course the decision has nothing to do with the perception that the SPLOST campaign is faltering, right? If people are stupid enough to change their vote to support the SPLOST just because of this transparent ploy, we are all in trouble.
Gee, Floyd. Don't know whats gotten you so worked up the last few days, but has it occurred to yet that you aren't really helping your case here? Your entire attitude comes across as very shall we say, Beaudreau-esque. A certain air of impatience with having to educate the rubes on whats good for them. That and the repetitive demands that we 'give the man his due'. Sorry Mike - errr Floyd, your boy has had his time and that time is past. Bye now
The pet shop owner is back defending his boy. Raack! Mike is toast! Mike is toast! Raack! Give it a rest, campaign manager.
Has anyone ever noticed how small children react when a treat they anticipated getting suddenly does not materialize? The candy that they were sure was just around the corner isn't there after all? Oh the tantrums and name calling against those who have deprived them, the poor little things. Seems to parallel quite nicely with some of the howler monkeys (since certain of you like the silly screaming parrot analogy) who have bitterly taken to their keyboards to protest the fact that their candy may not going to be there after all. How dare the people who would be affected by this cretinous proposal have the nerve to speak out. I and many others refused to sacrificed so that you may profit.
