This is one of the best comments I've ever read on the Herald. You should squawk this tomorrow.
Someone who is too STUPID or too LAZY to not buckle their children up in their car (if that is actually the reason they were ejected), does not need to have children to begin with. It takes about 30 seconds to buckle one child in. Hopefully these kids will be able to live with someone who cares enough for them to take simple steps to protect them in the future.
I hate it for this mom when these kids are old enough to realize what their mother nearly did to them because of her stupidity and laziness. That's going to be a tough conversation.
But hey, this is Albany. Where does the wheel of responsibility land here? The wreck was probably the curb's fault for being next to the side of the road. Can you sue a curb?
No doubt every school/school system has problems. The only difference is Lee County and private schools in the area aren't under investigation and in the news for cheating and fraud. Dougherty County's problems obviously aren't your everyday typical school problems.
You obviously missed this part.
"and liquor store owners — who believe allowing Sunday sales would force their costs to increase without any significant jump in profits."
Don't blame it all on religion. The stores this vote affected appear to have not been in favor of this.
It doesn't matter what the job is or what the wage is. If you agree to do a job and agree to certain compensation, you have an obligation to perform that job to the best of your ability, or else find another job.
I hope you teach your players better than the mindset your comment reflects, Coach.
Oh yeah. That's a great idea. Let's just call law breaking "bad choices" and not make a big deal about it, especially when they set the standards for our children in a school.
So, let's spin the wheel of responsibility here... I guess her bad choice to commit fraud was the government's.., no the police's..., no, I guess it has to be George W. Bush's fault.
Actually, the criminals were going too fast endangering the public. The police were trying to apprehend them and stop them.
Also as you try and correct others' spelling, it would benefit you to learn how to take your left index finger and press the caps lock key. Typing in all caps on the internet is viewed as yelling. You, friend, are way too loud.
And some wonder why there is a culture of entitlement and lack of responsibility in our area? It's amazing that someone who alone makes more than most of the combined household incomes in our community was getting free handouts, when thousands of others had to actually pay for their kids' food with less income.
This is me facepalming right now.
Genius. Pure genius. Restrict the pursuit policy so criminals know they will be able to get away because the cops will lose their jobs if they chase them.
I'm not unlike anyone else. 1,375 police cars speeding through my neighborhood at 212 mph isn't my idea of an ideal life. But police chasing thugs is necessary.
However, if you are on the street, whether walking or driving, YOU have a responsibility to be aware of your surroundings at all times. "What about the children?" you ask? PARENTS have a responsibility to know where their kids are and what they are doing, and to teach them common sense safety.
But I forget, it's always someone else's fault. So, go ahead. Put more restrictions on police. Hey, while we're at it, let's go ahead and tell them they can only shoot one round per incident, since if they fire repeated shots they may accidentally shoot in my general direction if some thugs are trying to kill them.
Well said Doc. Well said.
