Georgia Governor Nathan Deal took time from his busy schedule of punishing insolent reporters to appoint a new commisssion to look for innovative ways to

A blue ribbon panel of experts and politicians looking for new ways to get money? My wallet feels lighter already.
Why don’t those commissions ever have regular old everyday taxpayers on them? You know… someone that pays taxes but doesn’t benefit from the question at hand. I’d feel a heckuva lot better if the governor had taken Bill Buckley’s advice and just pulled random names out of the phone book instead of hand picking educators, politicians and bureaucrats. Time to sound the Antoine Dobson tax increase alert!
