Woeful State of the County
The Hack Line
With it being political season the Chairman of the board of Commissioners, BJMathis, gave a State of the County speech which was no more than a 24 minute feelgood about last year address. Mathis missed an opening to tell us what the planswere for moving Henry out of its current economic despair while bring jobopportunities to the county. Too much effort on what has past and nothing on what will be done in the future isthe theme of this sermon. Mathis tell us no one is an expert on the future, maybe itis why she left out what the BOC is going to do in 2012. Read the entire article. 
Mitt Romney

, is not and never has been a Tea Party or smallgovernment conservative
; indeed, his signature achievement in his one term inpublic office was passing a Ted Kennedy-backed universal health care plan thatmoved the most Democratic state in the nation to the left on healthcare and laid thegroundwork for Obamacare.

The Downfall of Economic Development
By TheDoctor @The Henry Neighbor
Mr. Charles Mobley has written a great piece about the Henry County BoC not funding economic developmentbut actually continuing to shrink the budget to help promote it. They are keeping the citizens within a capsuleinsulated from what is actually happening and what they are told.Read his article entitled, "Where is Albert Einstein?"In Henry County, GA the Board of Commissioners (BOC) have yet to give a high priority to bringing jobopportunity to the county.The 2011-2012 adopted budget exemplifies the priority of the current administration and all the boardmembers. Keeping tax payers happy with Culture and Recreation and keep them informed with greatcommunications is more of a priority than economic growth.

(CAFR) forFY2011 which ended June 30, 2011. This coincides with Commission Chairman B.J. Mathis State of the CountyAddress made available via video today (

REAL State of Henry County 
I was shocked myself when I did the math on those based on the charts shown in the report. At first Ithought maybe I'd made a mistake so I ran the numbers about 5 more times just to make sure. But, it'sright there on page 119 shown as the net value of Henry County in dollars.
How manytimes have you heard BJ Mathis make the argument for spending because Henry's population has grownso much in the last 10 years? I know I've heard it several times, especially since the census was just donelast year. This completely takes the wind out of that sail as an argument for spending from now.
I honestly believe there was a divine intervention in this blog. I used the search feature on the countywebsite and the first link it returned was to this CAFR report for 2011 that was just published onDecember 20th, so it's pretty new. I figured this report was what BJ
might be 
basing her SOTC Addresson and here it just fell in my lap.I read the whole thing and, I think, because BJ had made population such a big issue, is exactly whythose numbers stood out to me. 38% growth didn't seem nearly as big a deal as she'd made it out to be.So that got me wondering how disproportionate was the growth of the county related to the populationand it was all right there in black and white. Once I had that part done, the land deals were easy.I haven't even been able to stomach the thought of watching BJ's videos and frankly, I don't intend onwatching them because it's all a bunch of spin and lies. A link is posted to it so others can see forthemselves how she spins it against the facts.We must make this blog go viral. Please, ask everyone you know to email it to their friends and neighbors.

BJ’s Vision Will Suck Us Dry
As I watch the State of the County address it became apparent that I could become ill by the end of thisdiatribe of dribble. Most of the address she was trying to explain why she is right in all the evil she has doneover the years. I lost count how many times she said quality of life, it started to make me toss my cookies.She has no clue what a person’s quality of life is; it is different for every person in the County.Of course she had to try and get people on her side about buying Tara Field Airport. Thinking that thecompanies that are here now will use it is grasping at straws. Saying that Snapper might use the airport to flypeople in, Snapper doesn’t own a plane not to say that Snapper is no more they are now Briggs & Stratton,hello Chairman did you not know this talk about being out of touch. She kept stating that the County only paid$2Million and that the FAA paid $15Million, again she is out of touch. Mrs. Mathis where does the FAA get itsmoney? From the tax payers of Henry County and the Nation.Then we had to listen to her about her trip to Israel and how they cope with problems and the vision they havewhen things go wrong. This is all well and nice but we are not Israel we have other types of problems we don’tget along with each other as well as they do, they have a higher standard of morals than we do. Her vision isfor us to cave in and let her have her way with our money and ask no questions just believe in her. She wantsto be bold and do bold things to think out side of the box to fix the County’s problems. Now is this Chairman
Thank you for your support!
lets be bold and run the Government with honest transparent practices that the people can understand. Is thatbold enough for ya?Folks please get involved with your County and Cities you are the people you have the power to elect the rightpeople for the job just do a little homework and make the right choice. The County and her people aredepending on you don’t let them down.

Allen West Weighs in
Unless You‘ve Been Shot at by the Taliban ’Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell’
Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sent
The Weekly Standard
an email commenting ona recent video depicting what appears to be four
U.S. Marines urinating
on the corpses of Taliban terrorists.The email reads as follows [emphases added]:
I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do notrecall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies draggedthrough Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractorsbeing killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.
All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the twoSoldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicialpunishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in fulldress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotapedand conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.
Rep. West, who served in both Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom, wrote the email inresponse to how some U.S. politicians and media pundits have reacted to the
Marines’ video
. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, for example, has strongly condemned the actions depicted in the video.
 “Anyone, anyone found to have participated or know about it, having engaged in such conduct, must be heldfully accountable,” Hillary Clinton said yesterday, calling the incident a “potential war crime.” 
The four men in the video were members of a sniper team in a unit that lost seven members in action lastsummer in Afghanistan
