Perdue the Joker

(Broken links fixed...)

Since everyone in Illinois is enjoying the BlagoJoker image by driftglass, I decided to waste 10 minutes of time scratching out my own Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue Joker. (Good thing I don't do this for a living, eh?) Worse yet, This Joker believes he is Vice Presidential material.


While Blogo may have been ousted, Perdue continues to flagrantly violate the public trust by selling public use lands to private developers. His latest land grab for corporate interests involves Jekyll Island, a barrier island off the coast of GA. Under the guise of "revitalization", miles of prime, public oceanfront property are being turned over for the next 50 years to Linger Longer, a company owned by Mercer Reynolds. Reynolds is a well known Republican fundraiser who contributed several hundred million dollars to the Bush 2004 reelection campaign, and of course, lesser amounts to Perdue himself. What does the public get, you ask? 1% of net condo sales, 3.5% of motel/hotel rental receipts - but only after 4 years of profits; 10 years on food and beverage. This is NOT a good deal for the citizens of GA who will lose all free access to these public park lands. Add this to the Oaky Woods debacle and several crony land deals involving Florida developers, and you can plainly see who is zoomin' who. But easily distracted Georgians would rather argue about Rebel Flags and Them Uppity Negros than their own well being; and the press presents a virtual blackout - Big Surprise.


A Joker by any other name...

The crime is, as you say, that most Georgians don't appear to care that Perdue and his ilk are continuing to rip off the state and its citizens and will get away with it.

And this is a small drop in the bucket. Living here amongst the Red Staters has me a bit riled. They raise their women to be sperm depositories devoid of character development or personality (there is no one I will date), the schools are politically manipulated (wouldn't send a goat to one), most of my neighbors are ignorant of both history and the ways of agitprop (have few friends), and I can't even go out a have a beer without driving 40 miles across town because I otherwise have to listen to unsolicited confessions akin to, "I'm a Republican and so was my daddy. It's Jimmy Carter's fault gas is $4 a gallon. That damned Jimmy Carter sold the Panama Canal to China. Barak HUSSEIN Obama is a Secret Muslim Islamofascist that wants to steal our freedoms. And that Newt Gingrich sure is a genius."

Wh.. wh... wh... WHAT?

It's like a horde of mindless drones who were cloned from some satanic coupling of Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Joseph Goebbels every time I walk out the door.

As for the government, welcome to the most sophisticated Banana Republic in the world.

I hear that same crap at the pizza place around the corner (as if that's any consolation).

Yeah, not much, Laura - but thanks.
I wouldn't mind as much except that I've spent the last 30 years as a stranger in a strange land. I could never find a soulmate looking in a toxic landfill.
