You would be hard pressed to find a single solitary soul who would not want these charges dropped immediately.
Common sense???? How about the cop that told the unbelieveble tale about kicking the pill and then flushing it, and was demoted to jailer status. If they believe that BS, then..........
Marion County residents hasn't called for any removal of cyclist. Its a law, we will abide.
Bad guys...... i don't believe there were any bad guys involved in this, not even the kids. Bad guys, No.
There are plenty of bad guys, but this is just not the case in this issue.
Finally, maybe you will let it end. Cyclist have took over the roads in Marion Co.,and are not too polite in doing so. They ride on old roads that are hilly,curvy,narrow and dangerous for two vihicles to meet, much less a bycycle. We have logging, dump, eighteen wheelers that use every one of these roads. Even our county maintaince trucks and electrical power trucks are on these roads all the time,and are huge. We also have varying speed limits that bycycles can't keep up with.
Yeah, some dumbass passed a law allowing "BYCYCLE'S" the same rights as all types of motor vehicles. They should have to be registered, tagged and buy insurance. Why aren't they allowed on the interstate? It would actually be safer for them and vehicles.
So you finally got the bad guys,LOL. Sometimes it seems you can weigh issues fairly, this one not so much. The bycycle extremist have you, or are you one of them?
They were not liked before this, and if i were you, i would be out asking the citizens of Marion Co. why? There's got to be a reason why they are so disliked, make that your mission next time, before writting 6? articles on this, all so pressing issue.
At the stop sign, i never read in your expose, what were the words Anders exchanged with the young men?? What did Anders say to the young men? I really want to know. We know the arrogance all to well here, you never mentioned what words were exchanged, Why?
Most minimum wage job holders never recieve 40 hours a week. Bringing home $500 a week would be a dream come true for a couple both working minimum wage jobs with one child. After deductions "taxes" and a hospital or doctor garnishing your paycheck or if you have insurance through your employer "not likely" because you then would not have a pay day, it would all go to buy insurance, you're not in any concievable way even coming close to bringing home $500. Babysitter $100 a week...
Car payment 50...
Of course you know these bills are much higher and you know their paycheck is much smaller.
The US just gave Pakistan $60 Billion... with a B. How much verification do you need that this money will be spent on goodnesss and light or are you sooo concerned that a American Baby might get a extra bottle of milk or have a hot breakfast............. Get the hell out, I want to puke.
In the 80s a woman i knew worked at the Read House Hotel, and they had huge gophers. They tried to fix the problem by electrical vents etc.. The dining area was a main concern. Of course, the vents were just one of the ways they kept the rats from sight and up close and personal encounters with guest.
They had to hire a man for full time rat patrol, and as far as she knew, they never had the upper hand on the problem. It was all about containment, from the guest.
Have read all his books and my favorite Chapter in "All Over But The Shouting" is when he's sitting at a table with a bunch of big wigs. Rick threw in a opinion and some idiot told him to quit embarrassing himself! Rick said, I will take you out and whip your ass..... I believe it was Harvard.
I am just recollecting this and this is not exact quotes, and its worth another read.
I have never related to a writter and got it like i have with Rick's books. My Alabama family was Ricks family.
NO.1 fan and Mama and Sister feel the same.
Klifnotes, i mean Pam,
This thread is being editorialized by a professional TFP writter! I went and read Klifty Shifty former post and damn if they did'nt scream Times Editor.
I am getting cut off after this one, Shifty will no doubt deny, but i cannot leave here without outing this shameful act.
The air of superiority was very telling, but reading former postings was a "light Bulb" moment.
Here's one for the wingnuts, Sex, President, woman, sex,President,woman.
I could lay it out, but get your tinfoil hat on and adjust antenna to recieve all the signals and put two and two together.
Clay and editor 'Sohn' recently insulted the people of Coffee CO. by lying that everyone in the county were conservative 'teabillies'.
Mutt-Jeff was'nt even close to the truth and obviosly don't care to correct the many untruths that the 'editorbullies' shamefully put in a newspapper as if it had a ounce of credibility.
The Tea party of course is a non-issue but Bennett seems to be stuck, maybe he likes drawing a teabag.
Distraction from real issues seems to be this duo's mission.
Way to often i feel i am looking at a cartoon done by a immature 12yr. old bully.
Hi, Potcat, i am a bigot!
Lets put a warning sticker on Pam Sohn editorials, Beware "Half Truths and Bigot Lies" - "Rude and Raucous" etc...
The Manchester Times Editor ran right along the lines of your teabillies editorial and printed Bennetts cartoon.
Sooo lazy and all so sad, will be needing a job soon.
Does anyone smell lazy?
Read all this in the paper day before.
Smoke-fire, yep,thats usually how it goes.........
