And the stuff we buy from the Saudis at OPEC prices doesn't hurt the climate?
If you were paying for your own fuel and being paid by the mile, you'd be singing a different tune.
Some day, years from now, when all of this around us is gone, and there's no more welfare and no more employment, all of the people who are making it happen today will be dead and forgotten.
There is actually a way to stay home, have an income, and enjoy life on your own terms. It's called "retirement," and you can actually EARN the right to do it.
I'm sorry you have to "work" for a living, Clay. I'm sure a lot of other people wish you didn't have to go in and draw this propaganda, too. Why not just quit, give up everything, wait for bankruptcy and public assistance to come to your rescue? Please.
Where's the cartoon with bullet holes in the sign for MLK Drive? That one has a lot more local meaning, don't you think?
All you people who think that raising wages by requiring small business to pay more should go out, go into business, and try to make a living at it.
Then come back and complain about writing paychecks for other people out of your personal bank account, and about the fact that you work for the first three years or so without paying yourself. That's what most people who go into business have to do.
The guys and gals making the minimum wage will just move on to something else when all your money is gone.
Gee, lady. Ever hear of "high school" and "college" or "vocational school?"
In fairness, Clay's cartoon could have dealt with the fact that Wal-Mart puts countless small businesses out of business every time they open a store in a small town, and they leave a serious gap in the level of service and knowledge (such as when hardware stores close after a Wal-Mart moves in).
So, here's the solution. All liberals and low-income democrats should boycott Wal-Mart and go to Publix and Dillard's instead. Right.
Okay, to all you fundamentalists, wise up. Gays are gay and beyond salvation. Deal with it. People will find their natural way and either be straight, or gay, or something else, and the thing YOU FUNDAMENTALISTS should be smart enough to know is that IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN ATTRACTION FOR THE SAME SEX, that's your nature. God bless you. Is there anything you could possibly see or hear that would make you become attracted to someone of the same sex? NO! It does not work that way.
You cannot save them. Save yourselves. Minister to the poor, the widows and orphans. Feed the hungry. Heal the sick. Leave the gays alone -- it's a self-limiting problem. Let them be educated so they don't pass along HIV to some innocent person, and make everyone aware of the true facts of life. Sex can kill you if you don't use it the way God intended, and that's the lesson to teach the kids. They will make their own choices and find their own way, but you're not going to change their nature by preaching Bible verses at them.
I was married to a woman who believed in putting emotions first and finances last, and the inevitable result was that she ruined us financially and we were both left going our separate ways with not a cent between us.
When I moved on without her, got a job and worked my way out of debt, my life got better. Now I'm retired and enjoying the benefits I earned. I don't know where she is, and I don't care.
Anybody see the parable here?
When we were shopping for houses a couple of years ago, we went up to Elder Mountain. We were stopped by a guard (I presume he was armed, and was either an off-duty cop or maybe a retired cop) who wanted to know our business. We had to talk to him, and I'm sure he made a note of the time, our tag number, etc.
It was a bit disconcerting, and I remember thinking that if I had a house for sale up there, I'd resent him turning people away with his attitude. On the other hand, he probably knows the residents and their cars, and that's a safety factor. On the other hand, who wants to pay homeowners association fees to fund a guard?
Our subdivision has one way in, and one way out. I wish they had cameras at the entrance. I'd contribute to pay for that.
The reality is that Marion County has problems. If you want to be Buford Pusser on a bicycle, then you'd better bring your stick.
Where's the anti-Republican message in this cartoon?
Nine out of ten people forced to get down on their knees at the point of a gun are the victims of declared Democrats. Where's that fun fact publicized?
