I have a question to ask of our brain dead legislators: What about a person transferred to Georgia for a year or so? They are required to re-title their car, right? And they pay this extra high tax even though they may be here for only a year, possibly less, if they need to buy a new car? I guess just another instance of politicians automatically signing legislation they have never read. Or perhaps auto dealer lobbyists have "scored".
James Hogan of Snellville seems to think he is an economist but he actually just spouts Socialist class warfare drivel. Perhaps people in other countries are buying our debt but only because we are in better shape than most of the rest, for now. That, Mr Hogan, does not make our economy healthy and it will end when people realize Obama is purposely devaluing our currency. Our interest rates are being kept artificially low for political reasons and so that the interest accruing to our national debt is minimized. Printing an endless stream of paper money, Mr. Hogan, has never been the hallmark of a healthy nation.
And please spare us from your class-warfare drivel. You just have to be an Obama supplicant that cannot intelligently discuss economics without becoming jealous of someone who has created wealth. Why do people like you have to participate in this mindless class warfare? Oh, I forgot, you worship Obama.....
Hogwash. I had to have a newer car and I used part of my savings that I had accrued before Obama was elected. Obama saving this nation?, you gotta be kidding. My financial situation has deteriorated under Obama. And my old car was a 1995 model so don't give me your rubbish about your much newer Model. Since you are obviously a Obama fan, i'll do the math for you and tell you that a 1995 model makes it over 17 years old... And the "dreaded" unions (not dreded) sacrificed new hires and approved more foreign made GM cars in order to partially preserve their benefits. GM is where it is because of arrogant unions and out to lunch management and are now of course expecting us taxpayers to bail them out.
And just why should GM receive special considerations when other companies do not? The Obama bailout was less about saving GM that it was to help his union supporters.
Obviously you need to read the original letter. I DID HAVE BONDS. Bond holders took a hit, thanks to Obama, so that the UAW received a higher priority instead of bondholders. And, how do you know there were no firms willing to lend to GM since this was a rushed up deal..
Again, just how far are we to go to mitigate the detrimental effects of global warming, whether man-caused or not. This was and is my basic question which you conveniently ignored. Are we to destroy mankind to offset global warming???? Please answer this for me instead of your tap dancing..... Yes, we have global warming but even experts disagree on the extent that we contribute to it. And what should/can we reasonably do about it without committing suicide? And, you first......
Both "charlesg" and "LilburnGwinnett" missed the main points of my letter. In spite of what charlesg claims, all scientists do not agree on the effect of man's activities on climate change and for him to spout these opinions as fact is ludicrous. As for his denial that scientists would ever fabricate studies, perhaps charles has already forgotten the communications between the scientists of the University of East Anglia showing that they did indeed fudge their data. Studying ice cores and what he calls predictable cycles is interesting but, even the scientists say, is not conclusive but is their opinion.
I find charles's comment for me to "man up" to be insulting as if he is any position to know me but that is the language that liberals use in attacking anyone who disagrees with their stance.
As for "LilburnGwinnett" and his comment that there were no conspiracies, he must be quite out of touch with reality. The devastation of our oil industry, coal industry and increased damaging regulations regarding emissions in the cause of "global warming" is proof that there are groups of people who are using climate change to promote their agenda of controlling our lives and our actions.
The point of my letter, which obviously went way over the heads of these two people, is that, as I plainly stated, that I certainly do believe we are having global warming but I question the motives of those who wish to shut down our economy with their "the skies are falling" and I question how much we humans actually affect global warming. Certainly, we should reduce pollutants and other emissions that negatively affect our environment but as I plainly stated in my initial letter, I "want to know the truth". And I want unvarnished truth that is not tainted by those who have political agendas, pro or con. I ask "charlesg" and "LilburnGeorgia", is this concept really so hard to understand? Are we to destroy our economy so that the left can oppose their jobs-destroying agendas on the rest of us without understanding what can and should reasonably be done? I consider myself to be a "tree-hugger" but I am quite weary of those who use global warming as a weapon to control our economy for their own personal purposes.
Togut notably offered no solution nor do most liberals have a thoughtful solution. As a veteran with 26 years Army service and 5 years with the INS, I consider most liberal proposals to be without merit and without common sense. I object to using my military as a path to legality. With our military downsizing and having military service as a "mercenary" condition is idiotic given the very small number who would/could serve. This is a diversion from the real issue!
As for the Dream Act proposals, an amnesty for the young would have happened long ago but for liberal efforts to include myriad family member, including extended family members not even in the U.S. The proposed Dream Acts were purposely designed to eventually give amnesty to over 6 million Illegals and to effectively stymie the deportation of the rest. Yes, we need to institute a form of amnesty for the true children who are adversely affected but current Obama efforts are being structured to give amnesty, under the guise of "helping innocent children", to millions of non-deserving adult illegals.
I have yet to see a liberal like Togut offer up any proposal that would effectively stop the future waves of illegal immigration and still more future demands for amnesties. The absence of reasonable liberal proposals to stop future large waves of illegal aliens is the real reason "Dream Act" demands are being opposed. Likely, Togut hasn't a clue.
The fact that illegal immigrants are affecting our presidential elections is strong proof that illegal immigration has gotten out of control.
I guess Michael Bence confuses easily if he didn't understand my reasonably coherent comment about how this nation has moved so far to the left that former middle-of-the road Americans like myself are now called "far-right-wing" by those on the left like Bence, Now Bence, that isn't so difficult to understand now is it? Although I do not personally consider myself to be far-right-wing, whatever that is, I consider myself honored to be called a far right winger when someone like Bence is involved.
Bence really became unhinged and called it his "aha moment", whatever he means by that, when I accurately referred to his idol Obama as having a "Leftist communist/socialist tilt". Obama's mother was a 1960's radical and his father was a known Marxist. Among Obama's best buddies were his racist preacher for twenty years. Obama palled with admitted leftist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. He studied at the feet of Marxist Saul Alinski and Maoist Mike Klonsky. Obama has long surrounded himself with characters that most Americans would consider to be leftist/communist/socialists and he has continued those relationships in the White House and those views are reflected in many of his current appointments. Mr. Bence, are you that ignorant of Obama's history or do you just choose to ignore it?. As for Bence's statement that I have "decided to come out of the closet", I certainly don't know what he means by that unless he is referring to my open and long-standing belief in the U.S. Constitution and that I am a proud Conservative who still embraces the traditional values on which our nation and society was founded. Regular readers of letters to the editor know full well that I have long embraced Conservative principles but Bence, like those on the left, routinely tend to use unfounded accusations and disparage those with which they do not agree rather than state truths and real facts. Next time Bence, attack my facts if you can but please avoid your routine personal attacks.
As for Bence's claim that I would feel comfortable "by being served his favorite brand of tea at any upcoming parties he may attend", Bence obviously intended this is an insult but actually I would feel quite comfortable associating with the vast majority of Tea Party members. At least they understand that Obama is leading our country to destruction. Bence seeming ain't got a clue, or agrees with Obama's planned systematic destruction of our Republic as we know it.
