Somebody Made A Mistake
PG recieved a mailer from the “Brookhaven Ballot Committee”. The address is a shopping center. The mailer supports a creating a City of Brookhaven.
There is a disagreement over whether there will be sufficient tax revenue to operate the new city. The supporters say there is enough money. The opponents say the new city should be named Broke-haven. This mailer does not say one word about this important issue. The mailer does not say anything about whether the new city will provide adequate police protection.
The mailer is embedded in this post, along with pictures from The Library of Congress. The mailer has two pictures of President Barack Obama. While the POTUS is not perfect, he will have little impact on the operation of the new city. One wonders why his picture is featured in this mailer.
If the people who are going to run this new city think PG is a Republican, that will be influenced by this nonsense, then they are not smart enough to run a city. This is similar to the reaction to the bungling campaign for T-SPLOST. Is the road planning done by the same idiots who are running that campaign?
In addition to the images of President Obama, there is a picture of DeKalb county CEO Burrell Ellis. A “No City” sign is pasted below his left hand. Both BHO and Mr. Ellis have dark skin. Mr.Ellis is the descendent of American slaves, unlike BHO. DeKalb county is majority black, and the proposed city would be majority white.
There are two important proposals on the ballot July 31. T-SPOST is plagued by an incredibly incompetent ad campaign. Those who support a new city of Brookhaven are making the same mistake. It would be nice to decide these issues on their merits, instead of reacting with anger to an insulting ad in your mailbox. There are eleven days until the vote.
