Five dollars an hour at Ford?

You must be referring to their Mexican facility.

Tucker Carlson to replace Megyn. Good call! Wonder if Hannity is pissed? O’Reilly is still The King there. Still, I wonder what he thinks, too. So much for Fox’s stated desire to replace Kelly with a woman.

Maybe Murdoch will just add a Page 3 girl to give angry white men a diversion from their daily political rants.

Just out of curiosity, how much Faux News do you watch?

Watch or DVR from 6-7 for the news. Love the panel with Krauthammer. Used to watch Brit Hume from 7-8 during election season. Major gravitas with that guy. Others not so much. Occasional O’Reilly, maybe once a month. No one else… Understood that Kelly had become a star there but never watched her. Ahhhhh, The Five, every so often. You?

Not enough to even know who Tucker Carlson is. I had to look him up. Though my ignorance is not just with Fox as I only watch a small amount of talking heads for my news. ABC has devolved into 5-10 minutes of news followed by promotional content of their Disney/ESPN entertainments.

Wouldn’t you loved to watch this one. Barnes and Richardson arguing the calculation of the tax we are paying on the Nuke plants. http://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?q=Cazier+v.+Georgia+Power+Co.&hl=en&as_sdt=6,43&as_vis=1&case=17548142798644549449&scilh=0 I bet it was a good one. http://www.gaappeals.us/docket/results_one_record.php?docr_case_num=A16A1313

Did y’all know that Willie Nelson and Snoop Dog did a song together called “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die”?

Georgia’s constitution states that “no money shall ever be taken from the public treasury, directly or indirectly, in aid of any church, sect, cult, or religious denomination or of any sectarian institution.” — linked Washington Times article I don’t see this as anti-Catholic at all regardless of whatever intent was around in 1875, but just further reinforcement of the Establishment Clause in the US Constitution. The $58 million being siphoned off to private and religious schools by utilizing state tax credits could be better spent in addressing failing public schools. It is clearly a con game circumventing the Georgia Constitution.
