Governor says farewell to House

Gov. Sonny Perdue has just bid farewell to House members.  It’s the last day of the last session of his eight-year term in office.  Perdue spoke of the challenges that lawmakers faced this session and of the accomplishments of his tenure in office.

He spoke for 15 minutes, applauding lawmakers for passing water conservation, ethics and transportation bills.

“It’s been a great run,” Perdue said.

To lawmakers, he said: “106 days ago,   I stood right here and gave a charge to all of us, and I asked you to work to do the hard things now for a better tomorrow. It has been painful in some regards …. You’ve done the job.”

Gov.Purdue sighed into law SB 529,but the state has been reluctant to actually enforce it. The next Governor need to introduce a bill similar to Arizona’s illegal immigration law.That would make me happy.

Good work my A**. Microchip bill–because a lady claimed it was inserted in her vagina, a road kill bill, borrowing more money to finance this years budget, hospital bed tax, forgot about need resevoirs for North Georgia (tried to sue Tennessee for some land), passed the so-called transportaion bill to another generation, allowed guns in bars, cut transportation funding, lost out on federal transportation funding, wasted millions for go fish program, allowed schools to be so strapped that they can’t even by pencil sharperners, try to take away teachers retirement, try to ram merit pay down the schools throats, took away the funding for national certification, sit and done nothing while Georgia’s unemploymen rose to 10.6%, passed a tax increase for normal people and cut taxes for wealthy people, raised our Georgia power rates to pay for a nuclear power plant, made no effort to try to convince Ford to remain in the state, allowed the people around atlanta to pay for a Falcons stadium without doing research, allowed taxes to go uncollected and says it is only 5% (500,000,000), furloughed thousands of teachers and state employees, depleted the prison systems, cut YDC’s, covered Glenn Richardson’s butt for years, yeah the list goes on–GOOD JOB-Thanks for all the D*** work you did bunch of A**holes!

Worst Governor the State of Georgia has ever had. I voted for him the first time over Roy I wised up the second time around but he had everyone else fooled by that time but I reckon they have shown me the light this time I will be voting for Roy again not because Roy will do the right thing. Roy is an attorney which most of the legislators are so that can make bills that they can in turn make money on in there private practice. The election comes down to who will do you the least damage. I am a state employee and Sonny has killed us you will soon be seeing the fruits of his labor by who the State has hired and who you will have to go for help with the state. Compare the State Budget of Georgia to other similiar states with about the same population that will tell you why all these teachers are about to be let go. Wake up Georgia you cannot keep on believing these used car politicians.

please, please, make sure you take our last free right ( truck seatbelt ) away from us before you go. Georgians did have that choice but I guess we are so stupid that you have to make that decision for us. How about we tell you which necktie you have to wear. I and 88% of Georgians miss our flag also, but strenght is not in numbers anymore – its more in politically eye color. god help georgia!!!
