These dye plant people worried about the river keeper. They had better worry about the voters. Kingston and Barrow must have their heads in a sand dune at Jekyll Island. Anderson must be on the moon and Deal seems to be protecting it and forgetting who put him in office. The voters will remember this. Their property values have taken a nose dive. Businesses that need the river have been hurt bad and the use of the river has been all but ended. There are a lot of mad people.
In reference to the ... Soundoff about the teachers getting their pay cut, goin' from a four-period day to a seven-period day ... I won't lie. I don't know if the budget ... makes cuts because of that, but I do believe that a seven-day period ... a seven-period day is better ... than a four-period day. ... Because you got kids that will take ... math, for instance ... their first half of the ninth grade year, but then they won't take math until ... the second half of their tenth grade year. That's way too long for students to go without takin' ... a class like math ... that needs that ... that needs that time. ... And personally, I enjoyed my seven-day period. I don't think I'd want to sit ... in those long classes on a four-period day.
... If President Obama ... gets his tax increase on the rich ... that'll increase the income into the ... into the United States Treasury by $70 billion. ... The United States Treasury is borrowing $4 billion a day. So, in a manner of 17 days, that will be a wash. ... You won't notice the difference. ... So ... might make you feel better ... but it won't mean anything. Plus the fact ... they'll be giving less money to charity. ... Won't that be great? ... And by the way ... both your congressmen and senators are rich, so I don't see a tax increase coming for them. Bye.
