The Lamar County TEA Party will have a meeting this Thursday at 7:00 p.m. in the 2nd floor court room. In addition to Lou Gigliotti speaking, (candidate for 4th Congressional District), we will also have a presentation about what the county unit road system is. It should be an informative evening.

You are totally incorrect in your statement. County taxes maintain county roads and city taxes maintain city streets.

What really happens is the County hires an engineer to head up a Public works department. This take all politics out of the road and drainage work.

Equiptment duplication is reduced, roads are built/repaired correctly by staff that is properly trained and managed.

Commissioner's salaries can be reduced as well as other expenses.

I have worked with both systems and the unit road system is a far better route for all concerned, except the commissioners

There are no city commissioners, they are council members and their jurisdiction is within the city limits. The city has an engineering department which does that work.

The county commissioners we have are good men, but not trained engineers.
Some will lay out cold asphalt with a maintainer and then wait for traffic to pack it. They do not roll it after it's laid and then wonder why in 90 days the pot holes and ruts are back. Any one who is properly trained in road construction would know better.

Road repair done right the first time is a cost saving measure. By doing that budgets go down and taxes will be lowered.

County residents still have the commissioners to address their concerns to. It just takes the politics out and no one road or area gets special treatment.

And yes, it does work. County roads are always better built and better repaired under a County Public Works Department.

Isn't that going to take time away from the time you spend spreading hatred toward the U.S. and President Obama? The tea party has proven themselves to be nothing more than an idiotic hate group. Your 15 min is about up.

no. he wouldn't come out with a new look because he's already made up his mind ... never having even attended a single meeting. the media told him what to think; it's no use telling him to think for himself.

anyway, it's a moot point because he never would attend a meeting. too busy spewing his own hate.

Well you can say what you want but the tea party exposed itself. You can't go out in public behaving like anti government terrorists and hold up racist signs and hate signs against the president of the United States and then blame the media for how you look. What was this tea party member in Paris Texas' message?

Okay a Muslim killed 13 soldiers. White people kill, black people kill, Christians kill, Muslims kill. Her sign said DIVERSITY killed them.

Diversity:the inclusion of different types of people (as people of different races or cultures) in a group or organization <programs intended to promote diversity in schools>

Explain that.

weak. desperate. lame. plus, the paris tea party is no longer in existence. and that sign, i believe, is referring directly to the fort hood shooting where so many were killed by a racist radical.
