So much for freedom of speech.

Quoted from the Henry Herald
"According to Roberts' testimony and the testimony of Henry County Police and Clayton County Police officers, Herman Eugene Talmadge III made inappropriate comments about Roberts' mother and attempted to insight a fight with the older man."

The story goes on to tell how the Talmedge was arrested and had to pay a $550 bond.

Now, I don't know the police officer's mother, and I think trying to start a fight with a 69 year old police officer by insulting the man's mother is a stupid and childish thing to do. But this is America. Or at least it was.

I better be careful. I don't want some Henry County official to read this and come knocking on my door.

Oh, Mr. Talmadge, your mother may not be a "No good (expletive deleted)" but it's evident she missed something raising you.

Stupid Stuff From DC

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ted Stevens said Wednesday he plans to propose a $3 billion subsidy program to ensure older television sets still work when the transition to better quality, digital broadcasts is completed.

Stevens, an Alaska Republican, said the estimated cost of a box to convert the new digital signals back to analog so existing television sets continue to work is $50 each and he proposed the government subsidize $40 of that amount.

'We plan to provide a set-top everyone who has a TV that needs a box,' Stevens said at a luncheon sponsored by the Free Enterprise Fund. 'It may be we have to set a limit.'"

What is the Senator thinking? When did it become the government's job to buy everyone a converter box? Is there anyone who can not afford a $50 converter box given that they have from now until April of 2009 to save up for it? My 3 year old could save $50 in 3 years. The Democrats are crazy... wait, this guy is a Republican? Sounds to me like the GOP needs to send him some Great Communicator transcripts.
