'Nuther case of why beer and boating do not mix. This is a very tragic event, but directly caused by the victim's own poor judgment.
Where, in Dalton, are they going to conduct checkpoints NOT in a Hispanic neighborhood? Maybe if they arrested and sent home all the illegal residents, there would be room for some non-Hispanic neighborhoods. Go Dalton!!
To get the latest severe weather updates, follow the Times Free Press on Twitter."
Why should I not just get the latest severe weather updates on timesfreepress.com???? Why should one follow you on twitter (or any other third party) when they can follow you directly???
Like XMarine, I question the need for two offices and the cost of staff and physical property maintenance. We are in HUGE need of cutting costs anywhere/everywhere that costs can be cut. Non-essential staff and property rental are places to cut costs. One centrally located office should be sufficient.
Harvest the Kudzu and produce ethanol from it. This controls the Kudzu while producing a very desirable by-product. Two sided winner!
FM_33, we cannot have a NAAWP because that would be racist. Somehow, the NAACP is not.
We cannot have a United Caucasian College Fund because that would be racist also. Somehow, the United Negro College Fund is not racist. It is also racist to call a Negro a Negro, but they can be given college tuition and don't seem to mind being Negro. I just don't get it.
How is it that stopping a dark skinned driver for driving a car with expired tags is profiling when stopping a light skinned driver for driving a car with expired tags is not profiling? And - heaven forbid the police officer ask a dark skinned driver who is driving a car with expired tags for their driver license or any other form of picture identification. Although they ask light skinned drivers who are driving a car with expired tags for their driver licenses and other forms of identification routinely without incident. How can this be called racial profiling? (The expired tags are all the same color anyway)
Kinda like building a car with a 500 HP engine and installing a radiator capable of dissipating the heat generated by a 250 HP engine then telling the purchaser, "You can only use 1/2 the power of this engine or it will overheat." Did the engineers not know how much heat would be generated and how much heat the river could dissipate before they built the facility? Extremely wasteful to spend the money for a facility that can only operate at 1/2 capacity, isn't it? But, OH well, they just add the wasted cost to the residents' electric bills.
While I have no particular problem with the concept of traffic cameras - speed cameras, traffic light cameras, etc., I have HUGE issues with the way they work. Under the current administration methods these cameras should be POSITIVELY OUTLAWED!! The cities and other municipalities do not own or administer these cameras. These are owned, installed, calibrated, administered by the camera manufacturer who is paid a percentage of the take as their compensation. The manufacturer of the devices should be paid a fair retail price for the cameras and an independent party with no financial incentive to cheat must calibrate them. The present system is "having the fox guard the chicken house".
