racism in Douglasville..

Gee in another post you said you didn't call names, that was something just the liberals did and it just wasn't you. Wrong, half your posts include 'ignorant', 'clueless', 'stupid', etc. You're quite the Archie Bunker aren't you? "Aw geeze lookid diss. Hard work'n American heeah hav'n ta wait in line cause'a diss mooch." You have no idea what her situation is and you don't care to know. An upper management type laid off and benefits have run out because she can't find a good paying job? Her sister was killed in a car accident and now she's raising her kids? A Foster parent? Caring for a disabled person? I mentioned aging parents, what if she was doing a favor for someone in her Church who can't get out? You have no idea, you were momentarily inconvienced and you just wanted to spit on someone. Well duly noted and your character slips down a few more notches.  (Feb 22, 2012 | post #82)

obama wants HIGHER gas prices and FEWER JOBS

Exxon and similar fall under that heading of too big to fail. That being said they need a substantial return on solar which will put it out of reach of the average American. Until then, electric will require plugging into the grid and cities like New York and LA have blackouts now during the summer.  (Feb 21, 2012 | post #31)

Abortion Debate - Douglasville, GA

But we are pawns to the political parties. They come up with three or four issues and make them polarizing, let those issues overshadow what they're really up to. "My hand? Cookie jar? Umm.....Look! Look over there at all THAT stuff, look at the abortion, look at that Hispanic-must be illegal, look at that chronically poor person, look at that rotten corporate CEO! Cookie Jar? Naw! There's no cookie jar, no back room, no shady deal, no kickbacks, no payoffs, no insider deals, no favoritism, I'm one of YOU people!" Bunch of BS, spend $5 million to get a job that pays $2K a year. Who gets elected? The one with the most money therefore the best dog and pony show.  (Feb 21, 2012 | post #33)

A major restriction to electric cars is our powergrid. What would happen if everyone plugged in their cars in the evening to charge for the next days usage? TVs would go blank starting at 6 on the east coast and proceed across the country. And all that electricity has to be generated somehow and most comes from the combustion of fossil fuels. Maybe that's why this administration has OK'd the first nuke plant since 3-mile island.  (Feb 21, 2012 | post #19)

rate the performance of the douglas co sheriff

I guess conviction rate and closure of cases is one way to measure the effectiveness of the department and no I don't know what the stats are for D County. Statistics can be made to say different things and should never be taken at face value. But is that all we expect from the department, successful convictions? When I was the VP of our homeowners association we'd have conversations with the deputies that would answer our pleas for traffic control and those that would respond to our calls about people trespassing in our pool and vandalizing our neighborhood. (They never did arrest anyone in those cases.) The officers would tell us that they knew about drug activities on a certain street and that they knew which houses. Did they do anything? No, I guess they didn't have enough to convict. But as a homeowner I don't really care if they can convict? I just want the crap to stop and a heavy police presence would do that. But two or three days later the patrols would stop and the drug dealing, speeders, and fence jumpers would be right back doing the same old thing. Eventually we just stopped calling because we saw no positive result. And most of those concerned people, myself included, have moved out leaving the subdivision to the renters, section 8ers, and similar. Of the 20 or so people that I knew where they moved only one stayed in Douglas County.  (Feb 21, 2012 | post #9)

Seems strange that 100% of the people that come on this forum complain about crime, drugs, theft rings, squatters, thugs, punks, wreckless drivers, DUIs, gangs, shootings, beatings, cost of a new jail...yet 41% think law enforcement, in this case the sheriff, is doing an excellent job. I realize it's a tough row to hoe, but excellent?  (Feb 20, 2012 | post #6)

Second suspect in Bill Arp burglaries denied bond on laun...

I'm sure the judge put less weight on the terms or street slang this guy used and put more weight on the facts of the case, wanted in Slidell, repeatedly sold stolen stuff....he's a flight risk and he wasn't going anywhere.  (Feb 17, 2012 | post #3)

gas OVER $5 per gallon by SPRING

I didn't realize the big oil companies were so generously concerned with those considered less fortunate.  (Feb 16, 2012 | post #14)

gas OVER $5 per gallon by SPRING

They don't make money no matter what, eventually they're going to run out of oil, everyday we burn oil makes tomorrows oil more expensive. The speculators, which impact the price of oil substantially more than the cost of production, know what the long term prognosis is. Gasoline isn't like next years Christmas toys where you produce a bunch and warehouse it, make your sales and if you have any left over, discount it, donate it or just throw it out. Gasoline doesn't store well in the long run as it tends degrade and it's a costly operation warehousing the stuff. Instead the refineries produce enough to meet the expected demand at any given time, produce a gallon, sell a gallon. A small ammount is stored to adjust for any small fluctuations in demand. If tomorrow they flooded the market with several million extra gallons, yeah the price would go down until they had to charge extra on what they did sell to offset the cost of storage, reprocessing and/or disposal of the gas they didn't sell. Of course if everyone could started driving more miles on the cheaper gas using up the surplus but then we'd be back to produce a gallon, sell a gallon and if I'm the oil company I'm doing that at the profit level on $3.50 a gallon, to satisfy my investors instead of at a buck and a half. Besides the market will bear $3.50 a gallon. And yeah they want to drill in the shallow waters, it's cheaper making their profits higher and their liabilities lower.  (Feb 16, 2012 | post #13)

Dick's Sporting Goods

Yeah, when I posted the above it gave me a warning message about posting foul language. Wasn't like I said "tear the old building down, you could stick a great big Dick's in there".  (Feb 16, 2012 | post #5)

And why would the oil companies want to put more oil on the market resulting in lower prices/profits?  (Feb 15, 2012 | post #8)
