Feb-21-13 7:29 AM magistrates, clerks make three times the annual salary of the residents of their counties. ELITIST! Their raise is more than many people make in a year, yet the ******* haters in this forum HATE people who are forced to collect food stamps to feed their kids. News Flash ******* idiots!!!!!! You are taking out your aggression on the wrong group of people!

Raises must be earned. Where's the evidence the magistrates are working harder or doing such a tremendously better job? The Democrat-controlled Legislature continues to stick it to the taxpayer with this latest round of pay hikes.

make the vehicle operatorlicenseand conceal carry permit the same doc. Every person who owns a car or gun would have to be registered. Every person who doesn't have a carry permit would still have to carry a Non Carry permit/ operatot license. If it is right to have a regtistery of all who carry legally , it is reasonable to have registery of all who don't carry legally.
