I love it.

“I don’t think [Goff] could imagine if he was the father of a rape victim,” Moore said. “The only person that can elect the speaker are the House of Representatives. I hope, if he was a representative, he would have the same moral opposition. Morality and the law do not always equate.”

It’s nice to see some in the legislature still have principles. https://www.timesfreepress.com/news/local/story/2019/feb/28/dade-county-commissioner-critique-colton-moore/489709/

Modest contributions to candidates or a party (Is $13,000 in the past decade is pushing it?) are not disqualifying, but selecting Jennifer McNeely as a finalist for Director of the state ethics commission? She was an alternate delegate to the 2016 National Republican Conventio and has worked with Doug Chalmers, a campaign finance law expert who frequently defends clients before the commission.

Come on.

i don’t get the first bullet point. Gwinnett county voters can vote right now if they go to the elections office. Beginning on Monday, March 4th they have the option of going to several satellite locations. I may be having a dull moment and missed something but why say “Don’t forget to vote on Tuesday?”

If the condo board was in a extremely snow area, the fines they could issue just on ‘minds in the gutter’ after a snow and shovel event would negate the need for association fees.

No North Korean missile tests in 400 days.
Refusing to eliminate or lessens sanctions for what Kim offered this week.

Good.

30 to 60 nuclear bombs in NK, and fissile material for 5 to 7 more created in the last year or two.
Accepting Kim “at his word” “he didn’t know about” Warmbier for nothing in return.

Bad.

Trump ordered a top secret clearance for son-in-law Kushner, someone without national security, foreign policy, or diplomatic experience, who had had to repeatedly revise disclosures when they were found by others to be incomplete. (Are they even complete now?)

It’s Trump’s prerogative as President to authorize security clearances to those he chooses over the objections of security clearance officials. But what about Trump ordering clearance and thereafter stating “I was never involved with the security”?

If you ever get a change to look at the whole Twitter string on making fun of the 1%, there are about 20 examples. and the comments are glorious.

Any chance of Amazon revisiting GA for their new HQ? All of those new jobs coming here would be quite a coup.

I suppose if we raise the bribe to $5 billion they might consider us.

Here is a fun article from the Nashville Paper on Jan 22.1899. Georgia is upset with the GA/TN Boundary because it is not at the river. https://search.proquest.com/docview/927296742?accountid=33208

Alas, if that would only get me access to Jared’s security clearance files too….

All it took for Jared was producing a Double Naught Spy Secret Decoder Ring from a Cracker Jacks box. Well, that and a letter of recommendation from the Saudi Crown prince.

Sorry, didn’t realize that. I got there by accessing the site through the Tennessee Archives page. I was in Tennessee when I accessed it. When I tried at home it wouldn’t let me.

Trump is harsh about the Green New Deal…do many folks support that?
