HIGH STAKES POKER GAME IN GEORGIA STATE HOUSE JUMP STARTS THE 2006 GOVERNOR'S RACE
The game is on, and Governor Perdue opens with a billion dollar infusion into our glorious education system, that includes a proposed 6% increase in teachers' salaries (reduced to 4% as of second session day). Then Mark Taylor raises the ante with free health care for any child not covered in Georgia, and today free education for college for all four years, if students maintain a B average. And the other Governor contender, Ms. Cox, wants to move the drivers' license bureau to Macon.
Oh, the game gets even more costly, with the state corrections bureau being relocated to the old Tift College in Forsyth that will cost no telling what to remodel for this move to decentralize state government out of Atlanta. But, hey who cares because money grows on trees in Georgia. I suppose that we just need to elect a King for life in our state because elections every four years are getting to be costly affairs.
Where in the tarnation are all of the so-called conservatives that we have elected in Georgia. I suppose that they are in the same black hole, as the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
