Great Morning Read topics today, Jessica. The Planned Parenthood story is especially disturbing. Don’t know if this is O’Keefe’s group or not but the actions admitted to in the videos should land some folks in jail. But as we all have come to know, the only ones who will be charged will be those who filmed it.

Forget the trivia of politics, scientists have discovered snakes that hunt in packs.

These were Cuban boas but who’s to say they’re not already in communication with the Burmese pythons of Florida, their bigger and fiercer cousins. It’s just a matter of time before the Burmese break out of the Glades and move in the same direction as fire ants and armadillos. You’ve been warned.

Somebody help me get into the mind of the homeowner’s association folks who cite residents for flying the flag. My neighborhood also has covenants but no one has ever been asked to take down their flags. My next door neighbor flies one as does my neighbor across the street. A little power goes to one’s head, huh?

I suspect they are usually a response to some incident in the past and they just don’t want to get into determining which flags are OK to fly, or when. As soon as you say one flag is OK someone will want to fly a rainbow flag, then someone a confederate flag.

I fly a flag all year and I will never live where there is an HOA. That said I have little sympathy for someone who runs afoul of their HOA. If they don’t like the rules they have choices. First is move or don’t buy into the neighborhood to begin with. Second create their own subdivision with their own HOA so they can set the rules they want. Last is get elected to the board and/or activity work to change the rules. I want to keep all my property rights but they signed a contract to abide by the rules… Read more »

My Condo Association has flag rules. I have to have my flag mount at a certain location and angle depend on what floor your unit is on, the pole can’t be longer then this, the flag can’t be bigger then that, they can’t be ratty or faded, you can only fly one flag at a time, you have to have it lowered by dusk (that’s more for safety so the flags don’t block the light from the street lamps to the units below mine), you can fly American flag any day, you can fly the current Georgia flag any day,… Read more »

A mailer from Jon Ossoff arrived yesterday. It was cut out, in the shape of a “luxury SUV.” This mailer cost a lot of money. The topic of this expensive mailer was the spending habits of Karen Handel. This election is a farce. https://chamblee54.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/lying-his-ossoff/

Um, no. That is not how that works. You have mere seconds to get someone’s attention when they open the mailbox. You have to do something that stands out or your mailer will go in the trash with the rest of the junk. By going way out of the box on that you may actually be spending more wisely if your read rate goes up. If you send out a 100 boring mailers you may get 25 people to actually read it. If you send out the fancy one to the same group, you may be 50 to read it.… Read more »

Of course it did, c54, cause he’s got more money than he knows what to do with. Per the ajc, he has reserved $6 million of TV advertising time, received $2 million from the DCCC this week, and took in $7 million in the last one month alone. Democrats nationwide have gone crazy, are treating this like it were a national election. I’ve never seen anything like this before.

Any day now, I expect to see florists showing up with deliveries to each and every registered voter in the 6th CD.

If you’re up near Ft Bragg this weekend you might visit their boot display honoring fallen troops. About 7300 boots will be on display at Hedrick Stadium to honor service members from all branches who have died since 9/11.

Trump’s budget contains an error that uses the same $2 trillion twice for two different purposes. Based on its supersized projections of 3 percent GDP, Trump’s budget uses to pay for Trump’s “biggest tax cut in history.” Are we great again or what?

This level of fantasy in a Prospectus would result in the SEC charging fraud.

In the words of a Washington Post headline, the biggest billow of smoke yet concerning Trump colluding with the Russians.

Gregg Allman dead at 69. And yes I’m one of the seemingly millions who now claim to have seen the Brothers play for free at Piedmont Park.

“I must have said this a million times, but if I died today, I’ve had me a blast. I wouldn’t trade for nobody’s, but I don’t know if I’d do it again. If somebody offered me a second round, I think I’d have to pass on it.” — Gregg Allman in My Cross To Bear”

Great post! A foreign voice of sanity while our own politicians and press continue their slow rolling coup.

Congress should investigate Obama for breaking Constitutional law. Actually the court has already ruled on the illegality of what went on – where’s the media frenzy about this? Oh yeah, they’re all too busy yelling “Russia!”, and everybody knows that no incoming or sitting president should EVAH try to develop communication with any other nation’s head of state.

The only, repeat only, crimes committed in the whole thing are the leaks and public unmasking of classified info, that Sec Kelly called treasonous! Trump will direct Sessions to open a leak investigation! There is a God! Can’t wait to see who eventually gets indicted. It ain’t gonna be the Trumpster! Lolol!

I’m on vacation, so I don’t want to waste time responding to all of y’all’s nonsense, but lying on your SF86 (the security clearance form) is a federal offense. Kushner lied on the initial form and the revised form. Flynn also lied on his SF86.

So no, the unmasking isn’t the “only, repeat only, crime.”

Sally Forth

Accusing Kushner of lying is going too far, even for you. I have not seen either man’s forms, have you? But if they’re checking out SF86 forms, they need to also fly speck former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s. Especially concerning use of office for pecuniary gain, e.g. the millions of dollars to her and Bill’s foundation from foreign countries. Too much has been swept under the rug for the last eight years. Let’s have sunshine for all.

Andrew C. Pope

So Kushner, Flynn, and Sessions “forgot” the same thing? All three guys let their conversations with Russian officials slip their minds? I understand wanting to support your guy, but suspending all skepticism is dangerous.

Drew, I’m hoping that your vacation has you in Hawaii or at least California and not desperately grasping at straws at 3:07 am! Jeez, Dude, just admit your side “got nuthin'” on Trump himself. And this “back channel” crap is just that…crap. I don’t really b’leve Jared is gonna be frog-marched out of the West Wing with a suit coat jacket covering his manacled hands for…..dare I say it…..omitting info on his SF-86!! LOLOLOLOL!

Andrew C. Pope
Andrew C. Pope

I’d tell you where I am, but I know how upset you get when people leak classified information. As for Kushner (and Flynn, and Sessions) lying on your SF-86 is punishable by up to 5 years in prison. Omitting the Russian communications and the attempt to set up a backchannel (that could be spied on by the Russians but not monitored by US Intel agencies) isn’t the same as forgetting to include your nickname from 7th grade. In addition to the form you and your family/friends also get to interview with the FBI. So not only did Kushner omit the… Read more »

Well at least Kushner’s communications, unlike Hillary’s, would be on a government server. A Russian government server that is.

No way, read the article linked – it was also in the AJC today. It will make your head spin. The courts have ruled that Obama & crew have been doing illegal surveillance of U S citizens for at least the past five years, which broke the 4th Amendment. He/they turned around and unmasked numerous said citizens, then compounded the crime by publicly revealing names. They collected and recorded literally millions of communications by private citizens! As the judge said institutional ‘lack of candor” hid all this while he was in office. This is not just detrimental gossip or rags… Read more »
