"It would be wonderful if the Civic Center theater did not sell popcorn so that the audience did not have its attention driven to the sound of popcorn chewing with open mouth and the rattling of the box while trying to enjoy a play or musical presentation. If they want to sell popcorn, it's eating should be restricted to the foyer. In addition, cans rolling down the floor is not welcomed."
"E-SPLOST is predicated on the same wrong-headed thinking that prevails in this country: Spend more money on education and you will have a superior educational system. Where does our money go? Unfortunately, here it just causes the educational bureaucrats to have a lavish island retreat on Jekyll Island."
"If you are an able-bodied young person and you stand there while a 60-year-old person loads your car at a home improvement store, you are a total jerk."
"To the anti-SPLOST protesters: Please adhere to a motorist's desire not to be a bother. This weekend at Victory and Skidaway, some of your attitudes were really aggressive and rude."
"I'm sorry, I thought the government's primary goal was to provide the six functions outlined in the Constitution. Like providing for the common defense. Not providing or reimbursing employers who keep a full-time workforce."
"To the person who's complaining government workers were paid for their 'time off.' They didn't ask to be furloughed, so why shouldn't they get paid? They didn't shut down the government; they were not allowed to go to work. If your boss told you not to come to work and you're not going to be paid, I'm sure you wouldn't be happy. They have bills to pay like anyone else."
"I love how people throw around the word corrupt and evil. Did you ever think that Georgia, with finite resources, has communities vying for things like clean water? I remember when the drought happened a few years ago that Atlanta was trying to get water the state had promised to Florida and Alabama. I wouldn't consider that evil, just horrible planning."
