Banner headline reads, “Husbands Rejoice!” But for those women in the workforce who choose to participate, does that also mean it can be called “A Day Without A Paycheck?” March 8, 2017 7:10 AM Log in to Reply FreeDuck Technically that would be a day without 80% of a paycheck.

There are enough “it’s inconceivable that the gop/Trump would ever do wrong” posters here that I expected a few thumbs-up even if they were halfhearted. Hell, after years of gop talk about tax burdens and job losses and death panels, I think I deserve something.

Its a piece of political legislation. That part is obvious. Its not a piece of legislation meant to fix anything though.

May not be what you thought, though. “Georgia suit settled alleging black voters wrongfully disqualified” “Nearly all those challenged were black. In some cases, challenges were based on discrepancies in state databases. Others involved residents who had lived their whole lives in Sparta or had never moved out of the county. Others involved unsubstantiated “third party” allegations about individual residents. One Elections Board member issued her own challenges as a private citizen and then voted to approve those challenges as a member of the board.” http://www.myajc.com/news/state–regional-govt–politics/georgia-suit-settled-alleging-black-voters-wrongfully-disqualified/djDIfYjpvyJJcZW8CJzgKL/?ecmp=newspaper_email&user-access=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpYXQiOjE0ODkwMDY4MDEsImV4cCI6MTQ4OTEyMTk5OSwicHJvZHVjdHMiOlt7InBpZCI6Ind3dy5teWFqYy5jb20iLCJleHAiOjE0ODkxMjE5OTksImF1dGhlbiI6ImJ5cGFzcyJ9XX0.M4B9wP0NmoZ4p8DLV8TW5QkxUBW-EPatuQ6RuOx6xC4&uuid=5C90155B-D64B-44E3-BE2E-39039FA8C012 March 8, 2017 4:08 PM Log in to Reply ScottNAtlanta Its going to be fun when Perdue runs for reelection.
