Re: “Riverwalk, shopping carts debated by City Council

Simple:

RFD tag the cart (like on your inventory) so owner knows it is leaving the property, pay per cart recovered so its lucrative, but a lot less than the cost of a cart w/tag.

Also spawns a cart recovery business cleaning up the neighborhood.

You are welcome. No charge.

Grocery carts. They can't even fix the Grocery Cart Problem. This, one of the most poorly managed cities in America...

Re: “Chief Lumpkin to leave SCMPD, takes job in DeKalb County

When February 1, 2018 arrives, there will be the Savannah Police department and the Chatham County Police department. So I don't get the gist of SCMPD somehow dissolving into two separate agencies.

Re: “City Council votes to adopt controversial new 2018 budget, including new Fire Service Fee

They are turning Savannah into something most residents don't want. They are fully committed to expanding tourism and hospitality, a source of low paying jobs but a boon to developers. I ask you this... what happened to the tourism management/saturation study? Truth.

Re: “Georgia, S.C. now have firearm permit reciprocity

To--hog: there's no longer a draft, friend. Anyone wanting to fight for USisrael
has to willingly join and presumably they know what they are getting into: illegal wars waged 8500 miles from home on innocent people, most of whom do not have the capability of striking back. Easy, huh? The swamp creatures running this country certainly think so.

There is a measure of truth in the rest of what you wrote, though low-income people are there to be exploited, not protected.

I agree that gun prices have gone up, but you can still pick up a bargain here or there. Try some of the web sites. Now and then you can find a very decent firearm for well under $200, the new threshold price, it seems. I remember in the Seventies buying an M-1 Carbine .30 caliber with a 30-round magazine for $35. I looked on Armslist the other day and now the exact same rifle is $700, the magazine sold separately.

Re: “And the survey says: Don't change or remove Confederate Memorial

Of course, since they didn't get the results they wanted, now the poll is "not scientific" and will not "necessarily influence the results". So you have an overwhelming majority (both residents and non-residents) who want it stay as it is, exactly where it is, but you still need to "look at what's best". There's modern democracy in action for ya....

Re: “Fire Service Fee takes step closer to implementation amid dire City budget warnings

There's another super boondoggle a-comin' down the pike. Has anybody been out to see the area where the new civic center is about to be built? I'll be kind and call it "isolated." I wouldn't leave my car parked there at night on a bet and I doubt any popular acts would care to venture out there in the dark either for a performance inside the planned building.

If any name performers do chance to go there, they won't be back after they find their bus has been the target of a break-in and their roadies or other employees beaten up and robbed. That will be black hole of taxpayer money lost, both to build it and pay expenses and employees after it is built.

Re: “Fire Service Fee takes step closer to implementation amid dire City budget warnings

Why doesn't someone try to get this ripoff in front of a judge? It is patently
illegal. And what if someone doesn't pay? Do the firefighters do as they did in the 19th Century? Show up and ask to see proof of payment and if none is available, drive away and let the property burn.

Either way, this will open the city up to lawsuits (which the taxpayers will pay, of course.)

Re: “Fire Service Fee takes step closer to implementation amid dire City budget warnings

Been crunching the numbers here and it appears to me that the Fire tax should be closer to $100 per household/business than $400 but that the higher amount has been proffered in order to get those who pay taxes to cover the cost of services for those who do not. And, once again, the taxpayer is getting screwed to the wall...

Re: “Fire Service Fee takes step closer to implementation amid dire City budget warnings

A City horribly mismanaged for a dozen years raises taxes and fees in order to continue spending like a drunken sailor, paying two and three times for the same positions (two mayors, two city managers, three police chiefs), cutting jobs while adding more jobs, and greenlighting more than 350 construction projects that cannot be paid for...and STILL one of the worst managed cities in America...

Re: “Georgia, S.C. now have firearm permit reciprocity

RIGHTS OBLITERATED;
means that those of whom struggle on the minimum wage cannot afford arms permit. Yet, their sons and daughters can be drafted for military duty in order to kill during war times. How low can a so-called pseudo democracy remain as a catch all in order to deny what we call freedom to protect any and all low income citizens? For years I have flown our flag lower than half mast. I will never bow down to a hell's political minion now walking over citizens in all fifty states. Our Republic hangs by a thread. I regurgitate when I even think about this. It takes a sorry bastard to even push such legislation, of which is nothing less than another step into the arms of any state fascism.

Re: “City Council to vote to rename Talmadge Bridge as "The Savannah Bridge"

Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right. - George Orwell, 1984

Re: “16-year-old shot, killed

Are "random shootings" included in the official number of Savannah murders or are they special exemptions like the July 4th City Market Unpleasantness? Just wondering...

Re: “Southern Company set to press forward with controversial, overbudget Plant Vogtle nuclear plant expansion

Pipelines, fracking, hydropower even, etc. none have the energy flux density that is needed for full scale U.S. industrial and agricultural production. Run all sources wide open for production then ease off into total dependence on cleaner and more dense energy platforms. Who knows? Maybe by then we'll have He3 to fuel thermofusion reactors. A track of diminishing returns for dirty energy heading toward progress as well as low pollution and climate changes mean the race to win is tricky.
