Morning Reads for Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Good morning! We are one day away from the GeorgiaPol Sine Die Road Show. Make plans to be at the Hudson Grille in Midtown tomorrow from 7 until 10 PM. Maybe I’ll even talk about Hamilton – perhaps you’ve heard of it?

Another ARMED robbery on Georgia’s gun free campuses …..

How’s that gun-free zone working out for yah?

How would the presence of guns have made that interaction any different?

For clarification, this was a drug deal involving GSU students in which both buyer and seller had firearms… So, again, how would concealed carry have made this any different?

Hamilton was a great American and probably would be disgusted that his Federalist beliefs turned into a corrupted bloated bureaucracy. He was an abolitionist but believed strongly in property rights, one who sought education, position and wealth and respected the industrious. Our history is not from purity but freedom and individualism.

Maybe we have reached a population point to focus on the things the Feds can manage and those bonding a league of states. A new Revolution.

If Hamilton were here, I’m sure he would write an incredibly lengthy think piece about our current political climate. He’d then follow that up with a series of blog posts and podcasts discussing his stance further. Dude wrote every second he was alive, like he was running out of time, dare I say, like he needed it to survive. Aaron Burr’s social media would be carefully curated, he’d probably wait to see which way the wind will blow before releasing a tweet or Facebook post. He was a guy that liked to keep his plans close to his chest.

Rather than talk of ending the embargo, Obama should demand that Cuba return US fugitives to this country; the bomber, the cop killer and other assorted criminals that currently reside in Cuba.

Fear not for what Obama will do for the business interests in America, fear for what he will do to the taxpayers in America.

Brussels airport/metro bombed, 31 dead. The offshoot of these issues may well have other consequences as the Brits are none too happy with the EU.

RIP Rob Ford…the Canadian preview of what you get if you elect Trump (on a smaller scale minus the drugs). Rob Ford was more fun to watch and much less scary though…thoughts and prayers to his family.

OMG Renee Untermen just got trashed by Samantha Bee for blocking the rape kit bill. There was no mercy, and frankly Renee deserves the public shaming she is getting. That a WOMAN would block this bill is sickening.

Watched Sen. Kirk’s press conference re: the Gay People Have Cooties Act… I don’t think he has any clue what the significance of the language in this bill is. I am also convinced that he has the intelligence of a turnip.

He also casually admitted the law was designed to supersede local ordinances providing protections for LGBT individuals. In case anyone out there was laboring under the assumption this wasn’t a hit job on the rights of LGBT Georgians.
