Isn’t this fun. Emadi, who also worked briefly as an aide to Georgia House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, was offered a $125,000 salary by the commission, which voted 3-1 to hire him.

I would say he’s the perfect candidate since he knows exactly what corruption and poor ethics look like.

I hope they wrote in this bill that these exchanges shall not discriminate for people who are on legal drugs like diabetics. https://accesswdun.com/article/2019/3/775249/senate-committee-passes-bill-legalizing-needle-exchange

The stuff you posted on the internet when you were in high school… It is now being vetted in a presidential candidate…

Welcome to the future of presidential politics.

Yep. Truly ridiculous. Next thing you know , political opponents will be vetting high school yearbooks of prospective judicial nominees.

I didn’t state or indicate it was ridiculous. I stated a fact that for the first time what one posts online in high school is open for review and ridicule for a presidential candidate. If you want to project meaning into a link on a fact, go for it.

I can recall one year when Jesse Outlar, Furman Bisher and the rest, raked Hank Aaron over the coals for holding out of spring training for a 1-year $100,000 contract. With inflation that is roughly $750K in today’s money. This contract is for $38 million per year.

On a recent podcast, Joe Rogan had never heard of Curt Flood.

To be fair, I’ve never heard of Joe Rogan.

Curt Flood was notable but Marvin Miller is the one deserving a shrine.
