Good morning! I hope you don’t get pneumonia – but if you do, I hope no one minds if you take the day off work.

“I want to take care of our people. I don’t want to take care of Mexico’s people who are here illegally,” said state Senator Renee Unterman, whose district is close to Norcross, during the contentious legislative debate. “I’m not spewing hate. I’m just talking about reality.”

So I guess in Senator Unterman’s bible it reads, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress, unless they happen to be different than you.”

You do know its possible to care for widows and orphans and enforce immigration law at the same time, don’t you?

The law is what it is. If you’d like to talk about changing it, then we can do that until the moderators stop us, but it is possible to deport people with care and consideration for families.

Also, deportation is only a small part of the immigration issue. The entire process of immigration probably needs an overhaul.

Maybe now Dr. Drew can get his job back at CNN since being fired for bringing up Hill’s potential health issues?

NCAA to relocate 7 Championships from state of NC in 2016/2017 http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/ncaa-relocate-championships-north-carolina-2016-17 The board stressed that the dynamic in North Carolina is different from that of other states because of at least four specific factors: North Carolina laws invalidate any local law that treats sexual orientation as a protected class or has a purpose to prevent discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individuals. North Carolina has the only statewide law that makes it unlawful to use a restroom different from the gender on one’s birth certificate, regardless of gender identity. North Carolina law provides legal protections for government officials… Read more »

Yeah, I guess it would have been better if it was a for-profit.
