Morning Reads for Elimination Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Good morning! It’s dark, my children are a little grumpy, and I need another cup of coffee. This is day two of the bad time change (the good one is in the fall). Let the Marine drummer in this clip drop a beat that will get your morning going. Meanwhile, the great world spins:

Yesterday, Governor Deal issued veto threat about the campus carry bill because anti-gun provisions were not included in the bill, such as adding campus day centers to the off-limits list and something about dual enrolled students. http://politics.blog.ajc.com/2016/03/14/nathan-deal-suggests-hell-veto-campus-carry-measure-unless-changes-are-made/ Here is a video of Senator Elena Parent (D – Decatur) speaking about the gun bill and includes her demand that day care centers on campuses be added to the off-limits list, a position Gov. Deal indicates he supports https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QDMSwIP1h8 Presently, day care centers are not off-limits to Carry Licensees anywhere in the state so this is adding to gun-control in Georgia.

Sen. Unterman seems only “committed” to making sure this bill does not pass. We already know she has conflict of interest with working for Amerigroup, who has a massive contract with our state. I wonder if she has other conflicts of interest and or wants to be the nanny of Georgia, deciding what is the best medicine for all, regardless to any other medical opinion? ………Senate Health and Human Services Chairwoman Renee Unterman, R-Buford, said Monday that she will not schedule a hearing on it before the Legislature ends work March 24……….. …..“I met with some of the families and… Read more »

Here’s the obligatory Ides of March quote in full, because I like the dig at the press and the dismissal of dreamers. Some things don’t change at all. Soothsayer. Caesar! Caesar. Ha! who calls? Casca. Bid every noise be still: peace yet again! Caesar. Who is it in the press that calls on me? I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music, Cry ‘Caesar!’ Speak; Caesar is turn’d to hear. Soothsayer. Beware the ides of March. Caesar. What man is that? Brutus. A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March. Caesar. Set him before me; let me see… Read more »

She said she got all kinds of emails opposing it. I wish somebody could call her bluff and do a FOI request on her emails.

When the WH live feed of the Hamilton performance cut off, I knew exactly how Aaron Burr felt. I wanted to be in the room where it happened. Only two songs? I will never be satisfied… and no, President Obama, telling me to look at where I am and where we started does not make me feel any more appreciative of only getting to see two songs.

Despite Gov. Deal’s many, many critics he is one of the best Executives I can recall. Many of those same critics live here and I think the man is doing a superlative job sticking to his core beliefs, while keeping Georgia competitive and relevant.

The two biggest attention getting Bills from our General Assembly are a sad testimony to pandering.

I want to be pandered, dammit.

Ah, our intrepid Legislature! You just can’t make this stuff up: HB 649 – Georgia Lactation Consultant Practice Act; enact http://www.legis.ga.gov/Legislation/20152016/159446.pdf
Now we’re going to set up another state licensing board for what I thought already fell under Nursing…

Is it just me or did they forget to define the meaning of Lactation in this bill? The define Lactation Service but never define the word it self.
