Tennessee just passed a law letting people carry their guns into public parks. They also just passed anti-abortion legislations. What are they going to do when the next accidental shooting is of a pregnant woman?

Today Mike Luckovich called Mike Huckaby a “wierdo” in one of his cartoons. Huckably is, by all accounts, an honorable man from very humble beginnings with whom I would entrust my dog, my wallet or my daughter, unlike most of Luckovich’s favorite politicians. Yep, Luckovich, such upstanding character must seem pretty wierd in your bizarre little world.

Women want to be paid equal with men for equal work. OK, But where I work when it comes to lifting something heavy, most of the women ask one of us guys to lift it.

So, let’s think about this Fair Tax. It is supposed to be revenue neutral, so, in total, everybody pays the same thing. We also know that we have Perdue, Linder and Boortz supporting it, so we know it will help the wealthy. Now, who is left to pick up the slack? Hmmm.

Would DPH please update the Refugee numbers so that we can keep up with how many are in Dekalb and where they came from? I like to see where my tax money is going.

Yes, I remember when Nathan Bedford Forrest was starting the Klan. He used to really hate ESPN and Al Sharpton. I mean, he just despised them. In fact, he never watched either on TV.

You believe that a majority of voters want the religious flag flown? Well, a majority of voters are in favor of gay marriage and legalized marijuana too. Do you go along with that or do you only go along with what you agree with?

“deriding someone’s religion is wrong.” And it’s even more wrong for the religious person to attempt murder because they were offended. If your God and your faith are so weak that you can’t take a little derision from a non-believer then you need to re-evaluate your God and religion.

Based on the comments I’d say the Fair Tax detractors have only read some talking point about it and not actually done any real research into how it works. Every purchase would have a Federal Sales Tax levied so all that underground income from illegal aliens, drug dealers, and those who work under the table that isn’t taxed as income today would get taxed when used for a purchase.

The Republican passed budget promises big tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires that are paid for by throwing people off of their health insurance and turning Medicare into a voucher system. Today’s vote was a message to millions of people that the billionaire controlled Republicans in Congress are coming for their health care.
