Wow this is big for Kevin Moore! Rep. Scot Turner, in a meeting told me that his constituents did not care about the traffic problems over a year ago. I warned Scot that he needs to listen to the people, and work with office holders on solutions, not point fingers, and alienate everyone. Kevin has a great reputation with working with people! Buzz Ahrens, Chairman of the Cherokee County Commission ……….Today I am voicing my personal support and personal endorsement for Mr. Kevin W. Moore in his effort to gain a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives for District… Read more »

Rep. David Clark has been an outspoken voice about allowing parents working with doctors to make medical decisions, not politicians with private agendas. I also give my Senator Brandon Beach, a big thank you for also fighting this good fight! Please give them your support, in their fight, to give us all, more health options.

It’s comforting to see conservatives whining again about those all-powerful liberals treating them so badly. For a while it looked as if Trump would grab all their resentment but I should have known they have an inexhaustible store of grievances and besides, whiners never quit. This time it’s about how the left is keeping them down on the social media farm. Not long ago it was the IRS impinging the rights of freedom lovers everywhere to claim tax exemptions, and before that the secular left was warring against Christmas. There’s always freedombook.com for those guys. They could just let the… Read more »

Interesting Atl Bus. story where 2018 gubernatorial candidate Casey Cagle now says we need to expand MARTA with more state funding and more state oversight.

Got reminded yesterday of a long childhood friend. She was a tomboy of the first order, believed she could outrun, outplay, outthink and whip any boy on the block. She could and did, she identified with the boys. She morphed into a beautiful girl, got married and became a successful attorney. She is still a lot of fun to be around unless crossed…….we asked her once…..what if you can’t convince the other attorney to see your side, you can’t beat him up now, her answer: if he’s a man, I just keep showing more leg and he will acquiesce.

> Too bad we and her parents couldn’t convince her she was a transgender and start giving her drugs to be a transsexual

That’s not how it works.

Salty,

Thank you for sharing the story of your brave and courageous cisgendered friend. It was truly moving to hear about how she did not have to struggle with the challenges faced by transgender individuals. Truly moving stuff. I can’t wait until next Friday when we can hear about how easy it was for your white friend living in the Jim Crow South to use a water fountain.

Thank you for inferring my friends could read back then. I am also fascinated with the progress in virtual reality technology and can imagine you in a chair taking meds or pontificating on whatever you identify with today. 😎

Chill, these blogs are for entertainment purposes only.

Meanwhile another DeKalb County candidate gets sucked into the morass of dysfunction and idiocy.

The law states that an interim tax commissioner “shall not be designated as the incumbent on the election ballot used to fill such vacancy.”
