MOULTRIE — Religious rights
“Why did the Berlin police stop a religious celebration? Just because we are not Baptist or Christians does not mean that we do not have religious rights."
Tell me why
“I pay my property taxes and I can't participate in religious song and dance, because of a noise ordinance. Is it because it was a Catholic celebration? Or was it because is was just a bunch of Hispanics?"
“Of course, here we go again, someone suggest something new and inventive that could possibly improve our community, like bathrooms on the walking trail and immediately people start pointing to the negative possibilities, like only ‘thugs’ will use those bathrooms. This is why nothing ever comes to Moultrie, this is why Moultrie doesn’t even have a nice place to play for children. Until we start looking at advancements as a positive, Moultrie and Colquitt County will never grow as a community."
Drugs at school
“From a student at the high school I can tell you that drugs are everywhere there, not just in the cars in the parking lot!"
Ready for trial
“I laid down all business and got myself to court, ready to go to trial. Had I not been there, I would be in jail, waiting for the next term. Charges were dismissed, which was going to be the outcome anyway. Should they be refiled, who is to bear the cost of a new bond, and paying my lawyers retainer? I will. You were late, the Judge did the right thing. Now you do the right thing and move on. Should any of those cases reappear in your court, then refile the charges. Otherwise it is nothing other than malicious prosecution."
Not too much
“So, you think 3 years is too much for shooting an officer with a pellet gun! That officer could have shot and killed the boy thinking his life was in danger and would have been justified, so don't think 3 years is too much.
"Maybe you also think this was just boys being boys huh?"
“I hope that the recent shooting will finally make lawmakers do something to regulate guns.
"The argument for weapons is always "self-defense". You do not need military-grade weapons and armor to defend your home."
“The problems with education will never be solved until our intelligent elected officials realize all kids can't be educated. Some just can' learn.
"The first step in correcting education is this thought, second step is to abolish the Federal and State Dept of Education, third is to show kids they don't run the school, 4th is parental involvement."
