Jimmy Carter and yeah I am from Ga.
Jimmy Carter and yeah I am from Ga. and yeah I voted for him.
You all really do not understand the Carter clan.
Ms. Lillian (the Mom) always said she wanted Billy Carter (the brother) to be President. The only problem, she said, was Jimmy was just not smart enough to run the filling station (owned by Bubba I mean Billy) down in Plains, Ga. Ha ha that is a joke.
I think Jimmy's claim to fame in the history books will be Habitat to Humanity. Funny thing most people around here thinks he started it but he did not. I also think that he is a very spiritual man and means well by promoting peace.
But he sure did screw up while he was the Prez. Iran should have been invaded, our hostages taken back, and then turned into glass. Oooops I am also not a violent man either.
In the 60's when old Jimmy was Prez. my High School class went to the capital. A group said let's see if we can see the Governor Jimmy Carter. And they did. When they asked me why did I not want to go I said "nah, he will never amount to anything or be famous or anything." Pretty good coming from a pimple popping, skirt chasing teenager.
I don't like jimmy carter but
I have to say, I live 10 minutes from the goton/new london sub base.
You have no idea how this entire state would be impacted if the groton sub base were ever to go.
We actually had a rally one day in june in front of the sub base basically beging to save it. Man the turnout was humongous. There were thousands of people rallying on the street and the line of people was literally 1 1/2 miles long.
If we ever do lose that base, and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before some ass wants to close it again, this entire state is going to become a ghost state. (Not that the economy here is that great anyway)
If we lose the base, we lose electric boat, which is who builds and maintains the submarines. thousands of jobs right there.
Not to mention, we would probably lose many of the local busnisses around there, because there will be no people to buy from them.
Connecticut fought to save the base and they fought hard.
Not to defend carter, because like someone said earlier he likes to trash the country, but I'm happy with the descision to save the base.
