Crybaby farmers

Its long been a sincere belief of mine that farmers are some of the biggest adult crybabies you will ever come across in life. Nothing is ever good enough for them. There always complaining about how they don't get enough rain or how expensive the farm equipment is and so forth and so on. Then there are the Keith Smith types in Cullman County, Al. who really go overboard with outlandish crying. He claimed at a meeting late last week concerning the new immigration law in Alabama that he will probably have to sell his farm now that he can't depend on illegals because according to him, American workers will not do the work that illegals do. If your wondering, yes this is the same Cullman County that was hit hard by tornadoes back in the spring and it in turn put a lot of native Alabamans out of work and out of their homes. I bet those people would love to work for Mr. Smith on his farm. If he would stop crying long enough, he might just realize that.

More GOPers not walking the walk

There was an article in the McNairy County, Tn newspaper over the weekend about a few of the citizens of Guys, Tn. starting a petition drive to save their local post office. Just to give you an indication of how small this town is. I know the McNairy County area pretty well and I have no clue where the post office is in Guys. But where ever it is, there are apparently some people wandering around who would like to save it. Never mind the fact that Corinth, Ms is just eight miles away and Selmer is ten miles to the north and they could very easily use the post offices in those towns or go into one of the grocery stores and get them some stamps. Another thing that bothers me when I see articles like this is that McNairy County is a huge GOP county. It constantly votes for republicans on the state and national level and finally in recent years its started to go republican on the county level as well. But yet here we have people in Guys(which is part of McNairy County) crying a river of tears over the potential closure of a few rural post offices. Its enough to give me a headache when I hear people who voted republican turn around and start crying when someone wants to cut an area of the federal government that they like. Your not walking the walk my fellow conservatives. How in the world will we ever cut the deficit and the debt if you people are literally going to have a nervous breakdown over a small town rural post office? I feel like Glen Beck did that day when he lost it and flew off the handle and started screaming at a liberal woman who called in. Its just crazy how some republicans act...
