Morning Reads for Tuesday, March 21

Good morning! It’s election day in many parts of Georgia, including Cobb County, where voters will determine if there will be another E-SPLOST.

(Fun fact! It’s not pronounced “SPLOSH!” Know it, live it, stitch it on a pillow. Please!)

Don Trump-un has installed ‘political appointees in every cabinet agency and tasked them with keeping tabs on the secretaries’ fealty to the president’.

As Dear Leader has previously noted, his people are most loyal but sadly some do not accept 5th Avenue shootings without training and when people stray, the brand becomes commodity, so prepare for the coming of watchers for the watchers. So loyal.

While passing all types of laws for our good, legislators are pretty opposed to tightening their reigns.

Work 6 years for $38k yr. and get $9k yr. at 60 in OK.

“The real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified Information. Must find leaker now!”

Who will be speaking truth to crazy today?

We have two counties in Georgia (Dekalb and Clayton) that don’t fully cooperate with ICE.

Old Terri, is when you have to explain to the young twenty somethings in your office who Chuck Berry was and why he mattered. One was ‘certain’ Johnny B. Goode was written just for ‘Back to the Future’. Seriously.

I blame their parents for their lack of education.

Warner Robbins passes Drone Ordinance….
“The council would ordinarily have held a first reading of the ordinance and voted at the next meeting, but Thomas asked that the first reading be waived. He said the General Assembly is considering a bill that would prohibit cities from restricting drones, and if the council did not approve an ordinance by April 1, it would not be able to do so under the state law.”
Nothing like rushed politics.

Automation. Better technology. Coal jobs were dying even at the height of production.

Last lines of article; “Wyoming’s surface mines employ far fewer people than West Virginia but produce four times as much coal. Any coal revival would mean putting autonomous trucks to work in Wyoming — rather than miners in West Virginia.”

The positive is he is getting the government out of the way and letting high tech do its thing, whatever the consequences. Obama made a goal of govt hastening the premature death of an industry while mis-spending billions propping up others. (Govt research good, govt venture funding, bad).

High Tech does it’s thing regardless of who is in the White House. Did you see the productivity of tons mined and worker involved charts? Hiring started slowing down well before the 21st century even started. Letting coal companies dump into streams is not going to stop technology or automation. If the reg had stayed in place, mining would have developed tech to solved their waste issues. What removing regs will do is increase profits to CEO and the companies. Mining firms are going to automate even more and not replace workers lost to retirement or who leave the industry.… Read more »

I prefer they die a natural death.
