My Morning Wooten

It's been a while. Let's rock.
A sheriff who can’t spell “assassination” orders one. Any of us could be killed by an ignorant, penny-ante street thug. DeKalb Sheriff-elect Derwin Brown was. The only difference is that Sidney Dorsey had been given a public office. He should die still imprisoned — unless, of course, fuzzy-memory witnesses come forward in 20 years to recant.

For the first 3/4 of my reading, I thought I wouldn't have a bone to chew today. But Jim never fails! Of course Sidney Dorsey is a thug who deserves to rot in a hole until he gasps his last breath. And just what does that have to do with Troy Davis? Absolutely nothing except an opportunity to continue the right wing myth that somehow the justice system is so broken that murderers simply waltz out the gates of prison on a trail of pixie dust.
Leona Helmsley is alleged to have said “we don’t pay taxes; only the little people pay taxes.” She may never have said it, but the observation does help to explain the folly of Democrats professed desire to tax “the rich.” They sweep up a world of little people in higher taxes before they ever touch “the rich.” Helmsley died this week at 87.

Huh? Only Jim could somehow tie the "Queen Of Mean" to Democratic fiscal policy. How about this. How about taking to task both sides of the aisle for creating a ridiculously complex tax code where only those who can keep an accountant on retainer benefit? Jim, if you can show me how the Democrats are solely responsible for the manure spewing beast that is the federal tax code then the first round at Manuels is on me. Oh wait. You probably prefer City Grill.
It’s OK to erect 45-foot wind turbines in residential neighborhoods in Atlanta, but not big houses on lots that once held smaller ones. One is about “energy independence,” and the other is about putting the rich in their places. Come to Far North Vinings. Big houses are welcomed next to my starter move-up.

What part of 3500 ft sq house does not compute? Some would have you believe the Atlanta's City Council recent limit on McMansions would limit everyone living inside the perimeter to 2 bedroom bungalows. Conveniently ignored is the fact the new zoning was crafted with the aid of the homebuilders associations and realtors. A nest of socialist land grabbers for sure.
Atlanta City Councilman C.T. Martin wishes to ban exposed underwear in public places. Don’t dismiss him. Work with him. He’s one of the lone voices concerned about the culture’s influence on children. “Little children see it and want to adopt it, thinking it’s the in thing,” said Martin. “I don’t want young people thinking that half-dressing is the way to go. I want them to think about their future.” Come to think of it, I’ve never seen the attire in any place where people are successful.

Sigh. Why do I get the feeling that as a child Jim was denied a slinky because it was believed to be the Devil's tool.

Meme killing. A dirty business but it has to be done. Time for a shower.

Ah, yes, "the culture." We simply must be vigilant about "the culture." THINK OF THE CHILDREN.

As for Martin, this is one of the most nonsensical non-sequiturs (is that redundant) I've seen in recent memory:

"I don't want young people thinking that half-dressing is the way to go. I want them to think about their future."


I am wearing baggy pants. Therefore I am not thinking of my future.

"No successfull place" eh? Dude's obviously never been nowhere near the entire music industry. At any point in time. Such a pity. A half-cocked brain is a terible thing to publish regularly.
