In answer to the person calling about the land clearing going on on Gentilly Road: I don't know who owns this property … but I'm sure that they've been paying both city and county taxes on this property for years. And I'm sure that you haven't been paying taxes on it. So, if you want to control what happens to this land, you need to buy it and then you can pay taxes on it. Thank you.
Well, our congressmen and senators just voted themselves a $5,000 pay raise. They also voted not to give you … a Social sure … Social Security cost-of-living … for 2010 and 2011. That's only gonna cost you $1600 to $3200, dependin' on whether you're single or married. But, it's gonna give them an extra $10,000 for those two years. They're really lookin' after you, aren't they? You better call 'em and complain.
Call your congressmen and senators and tell 'em we want Amendment 28, which reads, 'Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the senators or representatives. And Congress shall make no law that applies to the senators or representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.' Boy, wouldn't that be a good one?
To the Greek scholar who tried to give us a Greek lesson in the paper the other day … about Christ and X for Christmas. … I don't need it. I speak English. I'm not interested in the Greek. You put X in the place of Christ in Christmas for one of two reasons. You're too sorry and lazy to write it out … or you're tryin' to take Christ outta Christmas, which is the real reason for Christmas. Thank you very much. That's simple enough.
Now that the Republicans are losing favor and the Democrats are coming back into power, are our two state legislators … going to switch back to the Democratic Party? Just … a question for thought.
