A little. Interesting take on tackling the incredible amount of food we throw away daily. Tiny houses in GA! Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs a refresher course at charm school. Oh, goody. Just in time for football season. Pass the popcorn. Agenda-driven media? Nah, move along. Nothing to see here. The new kind of bully. Salem witches were unavailable for comment. Don’t forget this guy. Accuweather, you are dead to me.

No excitement that the AJC reports the DOE needs $500 million more next year, 60% to shore up pensions so their folks can retire by their early ’50’s. The super paid overseers missed return forecasts. Fortunately my state senator believes we don’t have a spending problem either, we have a casino problem. http://www.myajc.com/news/state–regional-govt–politics/pensions-health-care-education-drive-big-georgia-budget-requests/Jj4CL1dVGyvoo3lfPnLNeO/?ecmp=newspaper_email& August 25, 2017 9:59 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn Revenge of the middle? https://www.axios.com/2020-rumblings-gop-dem-combo-potential-emerges-2476905475.html August 25, 2017 10:13 AM Log in to Reply chamblee54 https://chamblee54.wordpress.com/2017/08/25/rhetoric-over-history/ The current battle over Confederate monuments has a few things in common with the fight to change the Georgia State flag. In both cases, some questionable historic revisionism was used to support the cause. August 25, 2017 11:47 AM Log in to Reply Benevolus End DACA program? Checking immigration status of Texas evacuees? Cut funding to teen pregnancy programs? Exempt Citgo from sanctions? Banning transgender service members? Pardon Arpaio? How can anyone justify any of that? A dark day. August 25, 2017 9:00 PM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Just landed. Was tired adter 30 hours in air. But once I saw that Joe was rightfully pardoned, not tired any longer!!!! MAGA!! August 26, 2017 2:49 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth Hey! Where are you, Noway? You are needed back here — we’re expecting any day for the alt-left rioters to blame Hurricane Harvey on the President, like they do everything they don’t like!

Transgender just might be a problem in military: http://www.military.com/join-armed-forces/disqualifiers-medical-conditions.html Pardoning Arpaio, yawn, Clinton pardoning Marc Rich, WTF Following the law? DACA, illegals Can’t we address many social issues better locally/by the states? August 26, 2017 9:36 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Re: Trump’s “transgender ban.” … I don’t think that anyone who dodged service in our military should be turning away folks that want to serve this country based on their physical . Transgender Americans are statistically more likely to join the US military and already demonstrate a bravery beyond anything Trump has ever mustered. … In addition to being braver than Trump, I’m pretty sure any former or present transgender troop could whoop Trump’s fat, sad, misshapen self worse than Mayweather whooped MacGregor last night. August 27, 2017 9:52 AM Log in to Reply xdog I can’t recall ever agreeing with Justin Amash before: “Arpaio was convicted of defying court order to stop violating #4thAmendment. It’s a pardon of a govt official who ignored Bill of Rights.” August 27, 2017 3:19 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Let’s also not ignore the cravenness of using a Category 4 hurricane as cover for the pardoning. For someone that complained about the “swamp” of Washington, Trump is pulling moves that even the slimiest of snakes would never consider. Seriously, he saw a hurricane coming and said “now is the perfect time to pardon my super racist political supporter out in Arizona, ban transgender troops from the military, and fire the guy in my administration who was a literal Nazi.” August 27, 2017 4:25 PM Noway2016 Hey Sally! Back ftom Sri Lanka after seven weeks! Ready to help you against the Visigoths! August 27, 2017 7:06 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn You know the Visigoths sacked Rome and basically ended the Roman Empire, then took over the remainder of the Gaul Empire right? If you’re planning on defeating the Visigoth that would cast you in the roll of the Moors. You changing your name to Othello or something? . Plus I’m more of a Morrighan or a Baduhenna type. August 27, 2017 2:21 PM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Why would they blame Harvey on Trump? Pat Robertson has already clearly established that every natural disaster is gay people’s fault.
