Scum-sucking usurers in Georgia preying on soldiers...

Earlier this month, officials from Fort Stewart and Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base urged Georgia lawmakers to crack down on such loans, which are illegal under state law but thrive because of lax enforcement.

"Lax enforcement" of state usury laws against companies charging 560% to 720% interest rates.

Toughening up that enforcement would be a pretty easy way to support the troops, no? What about that, Governor "Sonny" Perdue? What do you say, Saxby and Zell? Ante up, jerks.

PS: What's with the first names? "Saxby"...."Zell"..."Sonny"... :wtf:
