RIP Mickey Channel:

Speaker David Ralston issued the following statement on the passing of former State Representative Mickey Channell:

“Mickey Channell was the kind of man you felt lucky to know. Whether serving on the board of commissioners or the board of education in Greene County or chairing the House Ways & Means Committee, Mickey was always busy working for a brighter tomorrow for all Georgians, particularly children.  He was the champion of the legislation that would provide healthcare for some 200,000 children through PeachCare for Kids.

“I am proud to have known Mickey and been able to call him both my colleague and my friend.  The entire House mourns his passing and our prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.” 

—Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge)

Malignant narcissistic personality disordered Trump meeting with a paranoid Rocket Man at a time when Trump more than ever needs attention diverted from his serial lying and low character doesn’t bode well for a good deal.

The Rat just hit with another criminal referral. Guy can’t seem to catch a break. The Al Bundy of congressional testimony.
From Mark Meadows:
“I just entered a referral for criminal investigation of Michael Cohen, who violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act by illegally lobbying on behalf of foreign entities without registering. Cohen talks about “blind loyalty.” His real blind loyalty? It’s to the almighty dollar.”

The Cohen hearing, like everything else, fell along partisan fissures. This is unfortunate because both points made today could be true. Cohen could be a terrible human being who shouldn’t be believed and the same could be true of the president.

One things for sure, there was no search for the truth today.

RE: The notion that there should be wide open free speech on GeorgiaPol, and any other site, too. I think that it is pretty safe to say that most of those who read these pages have well developed beliefs. Maybe wrong ones, but that’s a relative term. And they’re welcome to harbor those beliefs, right or wrong. But where things go awry is when character and volume of those beliefs goes up the Richter scale. And the anonymous environment of these comments lends itself to invective. A lot of it on the level of “Tastes Great.” “Less Filling”. (and you… Read more »

I guess I was lucky that foreign language was a requirement through my entire public education. I feel kinda ignorant never realizing that other districts didn’t have that same opportunity. It’s not like I’m fluent or anything now but I can read your standard fifth grade Spanish writing, maybe that’s beneficial?

While English is the lingua franca of business, science, diplomacy and aviation, I don’t think a lot of people see an imperative to learn other languages while they’re young.
