Should our taxes pay for their classes?

This is bullshit. Plain and simple.

Anyone paying attention to the news lately should be well aware of the drought issue in Georgia. It's gotten to the point where we're considering help from FEMA. Most of the Atlanta area has 100% outdoor watering bans (no watering your lawn or flowers, no washing your car, no washing the outside of your house, etc.), which, if caught, you could face up to a $1000 fine depending on the city or county. Worse than that, some cities and counties have even gone to the point of limiting the household water allowance per person.

This is an extremely serious issue...it may not be long before Georgia taps ACTUALLY run dry!

I live in Gwinnett county, which is one of the counties with very strict water regulations. We've been given a month to conserve water by 15% or face fines from the state. However, guess what my neighbor saw at about 7:30 this morning? Another neighbor shamelessly watering his yard. Even the street was wet from the water. If you find someone violating the outdoor water ban, you can call the police. If the police come, they dig a small whole in the yard and take a soil sample to measure moisture. If moisture is shown in a certain part of the soil, automatic fine.

So, my question to you is:

Poll #1085203 Georgia Water Snitch

If you lived in a county with a 100% watering ban and you caught a neighbor watering his lawn, would you call the police?

Yes!
7(87.5%)
No!
1(12.5%)

Why or why not?

Apparently, libertarians are on the rise. Provided, 35 our of 50 states did not have any libertarian candidates, that still means that 15 states did! It sounds like a drop in the bucket, but it is a huge increase from past years. Libertarian candidates were placed in 14 local government offices. Of the 15 states that had liberarian candidates, seven of those states elected libertarian candidates to at least one office.

More and more people are getting the message that the US needs to restore liberty to its people.

Your children's rights to legal search and seizure may be at stake.

So far, this is only being tested in the United Kingdom, but it won't be long before it becomes widely used.

The UK is very, very Big Brother.  I lived there in the summer of 2000.  There are video cameras literally, every meter.  This is not something we want to take after.  

Surveillence DOES NOT prevent crime.  We have video surveillence of the 9/11 terrorists getting on the planes.  Did that prevent 9/11 from happening?  

Day after day, we see video surveillence of theives, murderers, rapists.  Did that prevent any of those crimes from happening?

Arguably, it may help detectives find the criminals, but I'd really like to see a mathematical figure of how many criminals have actually been caught using video surveillence.

The world has NOT become a safer place thanks to video cameras.

Contrary to my usual action, I will not rock the vote today.  It's not because I'm lazy or disinterested, but because I found out that I am NOT a resident of Lilburn, or any other city for that matter.  I am only governed by Gwinnett County, NOT by the city of Lilburn.  So, I will not vote.  I can't vote in this particular election.

Thanks to all of you who can and will!  Good Luck!!

Attention Georgia Residents:

Today is a voting day!  Take part in the Georgia general municipal election/special elections.



....though it would be helpful if any website ever on the planet told you who was running for what.

The Purpose of This Blog

The Katien Constitution


Preamble


I, the person of the United States, in order to form a more perfect America, establish this blog. I am appalled by the lack of true liberty granted to the people of the United States. I intend, through my best effors, to restore American liberty as dreamed of by our founding fathers and once again make this great nation of the people, by the people, for the people.

The Bill of Rights


1. This is a PRO-AMERICAN blog. That does not mean what many people think it means. Pro-American doesn't mean America is perfect and that everyone has to like everything that happens involving America. In fact, because this blog is pro-American, there will be many complaints about current laws, administrations, actions, etc., because I want America to be an even greater place.
2. This is a liberty based blog, not an open forum for socialists to get on their high horses about how wrong America is about everything.
3. Disabled comments means DISABLED COMMENTS! If an entry is posted with disabled comments, that means the issue is not open for debate. That doens't mean, go to some other post and write your stupid opinion there. NO COMMENTS MEANS NO COMMENTS!
4. Yes, you are entitled to your opinion, but this may not be the best place to express it. I would never deny someone's rights to freedom of speech, but there is a time and place for everything.
5. This is a private blog, not a community. Don't expect to be treated like a community member. This is not a community. This is MY blog. If you get in an arguement with someone, it's not my problem. If you cause drama, you're blocked. If you don't like someone, don't ask me to un-friend that person.
6. Political INCORRECTNESS is welcomed! Curse words, racial slurs, dirty political jokes, the 7 words you can't say....all are welcomed provided they have
7. Humor aside, this is a serious blog. Not everything on this blog will be altogether serious and true. However, every post is meant to contain an item of sincere concern, jokes aside.
8. Many things expressed here are MY opinions! You agree, great. You don't agree, I don't care.
9. You do not have the right NOT to be offended There is no constitutional amendment that grants this right, so don't expect it from me.
10. America, FUCK YEAH!

Amendments


11. This blog may, at any time, be changed from a private blog to a community. As of now, this blog is not so popular. If popularity increases enormously, a community may be formed, but is not guaranteed.
12. All people are allowed to vote. From time to time, polls may be posted. Votes from all humans are welcomed and appreciated.
13. You have the right to peaceably protest this blog....somwhere else. Comments that criticize me personally and directly dispute the purpose of this blog will be deleted immediately, users banned, no exceptions.
14. You must comment to this entry to be friended. In order to be friended on this blog, read the constitution, comment, and then you will be added. Members who joined before this post are exempt from this amendment.
