Stealing food from dogs is as low down as you can get. This will be handled in a special corner of hell.
I know her and vouch for her integrity and accessibility. If you take the opportunity to know her - and she is available as an office-holder as well as a candidate - I'm sure you will agree. At least try it. If you do so and still disagree it will at least be on the basis of personal experience and not just throwing rocks.
If you live in the district she serves, it is apparent you have never taken the time to contact her, as Ms. Dickerson is very responsive and very attentive to people in her district, even the few who are rude and hostile. If you call her you'll find you have little to be frustrated about. You may disagree on a public policy issue but you will have no reason for personal animosity. If you don't live in the district she serves then your frustration is misplaced and you should apologize before God checks off that little box about bearing false witness.
Who made the political decision for the county to repair/maintain a private asset the first time around? If it was approved by the county commission it should be a matter of public record. If that was the case we should know who to thank for the current situation. If it wasn't approved by the commission it would suggest the possibility of malfeasance, and if that was the case it is not necessarily the county's financial obligation to repair it again. It would be the county's obligation to prosecute.
This issue is more watered down than a cheap well drink. It isn't enough to divide it between city and county,and then into three different aspects of the same issue. Now we have to subdivide it within overlay districts. Except for those districts we might put off into the future. Once we settle all these variables for Sunday sales maybe we should vote on them separately for each of the other six days a week. In the meantime we'll be dining in Rockdale.
This is a bad way to start. If you only need to bring everyone up to speed write a memo and circulate it. Closed meetings create the perception of insider self-dealing. With this much public money at stake the public should be regarded as an investor, and has every right to be at the table.
It is about time the City Council paid for a legal opinion on the indecency of boxer shorts. If we expand it to include plumber's cracks in the trades and cleavage at the YMCA pool it may be good for economic development. We can host the next remake of Footloose.
Temporary Restraining Orders are a joke, and a bad one. How many more women must die violently at the hands of their self-declared tormentors before we do something different? The professionals in the criminal justice system and the public at large have to insist on reform or share in culpability for the predictable outcomes. Women must do everything possible to defend themselves. A TRO is viewed by your tormentors as a declaration of war, so you must be prepared to back it up. Get a big gun and learn how to use it, so that you may at least try to defend yourself when others cannot. Get a permit and take it wherever you go. Display it publicly in a holster. Don't be a victim. We all have to stop deluding ourselves that a court order will have an impact on the behavior of a career criminal. How naive can we possibly be? How long can we pretend to believe this system protects women? Women friends, you are going to have to take up the cause and make a giant stink about this issue before there will be change, because men are not going to do it for you. This would make an excellent signature issue for a young up-and-coming District Attorney. The alternative is to keep burying sisters with TROs.
Hi Will, I truly appreciate your additional clarification. If we ever cross paths in person I'll buy you a drink. Some of my conservative friends make me crazy too, but our friendships are more important than whatever differences we have. And it makes for much more lively conversations than those with people I'm in full agreement with. Happy New Year to you.
Hi Will, I can see a distinction now that you mention it. I made an overstatement in saying you take pride in hazing, although I think your comments about making one stronger, building unity and being part of the process suggest approval if not outright support, and the comments regarding children and liberals show disregard for those Americans with differing views. I just think the Citadel would produce better officers by ensuring they comply with the laws of the U.S. We can get all the mercenaries we need from Blackwater. That is not intended as a personal dig at you or any other Citadel alumni; it is a comment on the standards of those running the place.
