you all are the laughing stock of the middle ga area. I wonder how many of you even finished the 9th grade. Your a typical podunk redneck town. Quit embarrassing the rest of us proud GA people...

Hey there! Listen up!! This is what Fat Albert won't tall you on his Talkback rag!!!
Some of the most common criticisms of recall are as follows:
+ Because the election that follows a successful recall petition drive is a special election, the
process can be costly for the government entity required to foot the bill.
+ The threat of recall may intimidate elected officials, thereby affecting their independence and
the exercise of sound judgment on issues of public policy.
+Recall can be used for retribution against public officials who make wise, yet politically
unpopular, decisions.
+ Recall undermines representative government and destabilizes the political process by making
them subject to the momentary whim of single-issue agitators
