MOULTRIE — Global warming
“I think intelligent minds know that we are seeing global warming. And yes, we’ve seen the matter politicized and tapped for private gain. I think we humans are impacting the changes though we may not be the root cause. As you said in the editorial we need intelligent discourse on the issues."
Time to end ethanol
“It’s time for this ethanol experiment to end. It decreases fuel mileage, increases emissions, costs too much to make, and using corn drives up the price of every food product that needs it. Europe stopped using it for these very same reasons. At least give people the choice at the pumps as to whether or not we want to use it."
How it works
“Dear 'Extravagance': It might surprise you to know that when one is the president of the USA, Secret Service tells you how to travel and that they, and their support, are going with you, and many of them will beat you there and be there after you have gone. In addition, when the president travels, his staff of emergency personnel also goes, and most times, the vice president is hidden out, just in case something happens to the president.
"There is a lot more going on than jumping on a commercial flight and heading home for a Vacation.
(It is easy to see why a trip can cost 4 million dollars ---- oh yes, US ONE is a flying office too)"
Air Force One
“Well I guess we are supposed to think that President Obama invented the concept of flying on Air Force One and taking a vacation. Funny thing though, I thought all presidents had done this."
Bill to taxpayers
“To the person in R&R who thinks there's no problem with Obama’s usage of Air Force One, and another who mentioned a $4M price tag on his Hawaii junket. TSK! TSK! both of you need to be enlightened. That's the "tip of the iceberg". AF One costs about $180,000 dollars per hr. to operate. A one way trip to Hawaii takes about 8hrs. and 45mins.
"At 2 round trips(35hrs) which he will have made when he gets back, that comes out to $6,300,000, that's SIX MILLION three hundred thousand dollars charged to the taxpayers Just for the transportation! Think of all the other costs and it's staggering. He's your president, not mine!"

“I think you will find that under the last five presidents (both parties) money was taken from Social Security and put into the general fund."
Why the change?
“Why in the world is the City of Moultrie selling 68 guns and 41 knives. I thought the city made a resolution several years ago to destroy all confiscated weapons so they would not get back into the hands of thugs and hoodlums."
