Great title. You don’t have to go far. Congress is full of them.

“Great title. You don’t have to go far. Congress is full of them.”

Dr. Adrian Rogers. Rogers:

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

Vacation? From what? You’ve never known what work is. Those “old geezers” handed you a life of leisure.

Good point TNG — the assumption, in taking a vacation (including a much needed one), is that one actually works for a living…

Ecept Ron Paul. No turkey there, just a guy who can’t get very far because he does something no other Congressman would dare do: speak the truth.

Stay well. Stay safe, Ms. Tucker. And please do some serious thinking about the man leading our country that spent 20 years listening to a preacher that hates our country.

Turkey? I wonder if Cynthia prefers the leg or the wing(nut).

She doesn’t need to go to DC to get a turkey. Just go to north Cobb and get Franklin!

Any chance this is a permanent vacation?

Much needed?

Ha. What exactly is it that you do? I mean seriously. How hard can your job be?

A wingnut, a repudlickan, and a born again birther walk into a bar. The bartender looks and sez, “Get the faque outta here, cheekwads!” (Clint Eastwood).

A libertarian, an independent, and a public option filibusterer walk into the same bar. The bartender looks and sez, “Get the fack outta here, wipewads.” (clint eastwood).

A libtard, a moonbat and a healthcare reformer walk into the exact same bar. The bartender looks and sez, “What’ll it be, gentlemen?” The three sit down and are soon surrounded by hot babes, and all three get drinks on the house, freakazoids and it got a little noisy. (police blotter).

Well, that’s just fine, Cynthia. Now what are we going to do for fun?
But have a great vacation, and hurry back!!

If the healthcare bill passes you are going to have to add a 5% tax on all those botox shots you get honey.

Have you gotten any of that free money out of Obama’s “stash” yet?

First she was exiled to Washington. Now she is on vacation from a job where she does little since she freely posts from other sourse. What a hard job.

It reminds me of the saying what does a dog do on their day off. They can’t just lie around and do nothing since that is their job. Do they actually go to work? Does Cynthia actually do something productive when on this “we deserved” vacation.?

The only good thing about C. Tucker going on a vacation would be if it was for an indefinite period!

Point of order. Cynthia clearly cautioned against running with scissors. I guess she doesn’t want us to cut-up + lol.

A clarification:
Cynthia Tucker lives and works in D.C.
She transferred to the AJC Washington Bureau 6-8 months ago.
It is possible that her vacation trip is to visit Atlanta.

NEWS FLASH -NEWS FLASH-NEWS FLASH
In nation’s first self pardon, President Obama says he will pardon the First Turkey, Himself. In a move meant to show how humble he is, he awarded a full pardon for all of his transgressions against the constitution and the people of this country. His failure to lead, his failure to support his oath of office and his complete and utter lack of understanding of the power of the free market and the individual, serving self interests to make positive progress in all areas. While most Americans spend their time this Thanksgiving trying to avoid thinking of the horrors of our future society with Obama in charge, he spends it in his usual, excessive spending ways, using as usual, OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY to make himself out to be a big-shot. The good news is he will be another one term Carter like President.

Rumor has it that Cynthia is out job hunting. Seems her current employer will not be in business much longer.

Well, I pondered this message, then fixed it.

Dr. Adrian Rogers (AKA father of the talibaptist movement). Rogers:

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.(You legislate the poor into freedom by legislating more power for the already wealthy?) What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.(Sort of like porker productivity rising, resulting in record corporate profits, record executive compensation, but declining real wages?) The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.(Nor can corporations pay bonuses to the select few that they don’t first take from the deserving many who actually earned them) When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for,(Refer back to the results of increased worker productivity) that is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.(So you can multiply wealth by concentrating more of it in the hands of the already wealthy?)”

this message is for AJC Sportswriters and bloggers who have decided it is okay to mock the GT players videos and dancing to their music and promo videos. Feel free to point fingers at the GTAA, alumni, fans and even the parents but choosing to make classless remarks about the players is crossing the lines. These kids developed their own unique style based from their culture and diversity. If anything, UGA players would more likely follow the same and develop their own. If UGA fans on these blogs think their players think like they do, I assure you they do not. It is fun to enjoy yourself and take part with the team on your home field. To allow these remarks to be printed by AJC is more shameful than the UGA fan remarks. To continue this abuse could be construed as racist. Enough of it.
