Bad news is Isakson is so strong that it won’t matter. In the presidential contest a Buckley style candidate would poll well above 10% against the two current presidential candidates because Buckley actually has workable positions on issues. On another subject AJC reports Blue Cross rates will increase 21% for Georgians on Obamacare. Other Obamacare provider rates will increase also. A portion of these increases will be funded by taxpayers. http://digital.olivesoftware.com/Olive/ODN/AtlantaJournalConstitution/afterLogin.ashx?Reader=/Olive/ODN/AtlantaJournalConstitution/default.aspx&Id=7F40A2A3-8054-4F88-9F1F-55B7C8B71431&d=2016-08-25&r=none&c=58b403e4cee5ff83259ebf39e73d2ccb August 25, 2016 8:18 AM Log in to Reply davidmac No more treason-flags in national cemeteries.

August 25, 2016 10:50 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse The nearly daily disasters that are the Trump campaign are so egregious that the disasters of a few months ago are ancient history. The occur so frequently that they’re unable to penetrate the bubble, so Trump’s got that going for him. Today’s history lesson: “I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.”—Trump in response to a question from Morning Joe on who he consults about foreign policy. Trump said he does not need to read extensively because he reaches the right decisions “with very little knowledge other than the knowledge I [already] had, plus the words ‘common sense,’ because I have a lot of common sense and I have a lot of business ability.” “I know what I’m doing and I listen to a lot of people, I talk to a lot of people and at the appropriate time I’ll tell you who the people are.”. “But my primary consultant is myself and I have a good instinct for this stuff.” August 25, 2016 10:42 AM Log in to Reply davidmac Trump may not make the ballot in all 50 states. http://www.redstate.com/streiff/2016/08/25/breaking.-donald-trump-ballot-minnesota/ August 25, 2016 1:08 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn They estimate the cost will be over $ 5 million, they are not sending out any bills to the survivors or the families of those who died why be treated at the two centers, they are covering future follow up care and surgeries. and one center is not even billing the insurance companies http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/pulse-orlando-nightclub-shooting/os-orlando-health-wont-bill-pulse-victims-20160824-story.html?via=newsletter&source=CSAMedition August 25, 2016 1:20 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
