From yesterday: “@DevinNunes is suing in part b/c a parody account of a cow in Nunes’ ranch, is BULL-ying him, not COW-towing to him. If u think Nunes is COW-ardly, annoy him. Follow @DevinCow. It’s only 20k away from MOO-ving past Nunes’ account in followers. MOO-chas gracias.”

Nunes is a pathetic putz who can’t tell the moos from the boos.

“Border Patrol says detention centers are full — and starts releasing migrants”

This is why talk of “a wall” doesn’t really solve the problem. There are several aspects of the border control issue that need addressing.

Speaking of Abrams, think we could get Mueller to investigate this?

Not in Muellers written directive. But the DOJ can.

Lawmaker worries affordable housing options can’t handle Georgia’s expected senior boom

One thing Counties that don’t have it can give Seniors relief from mooching school boards by exempting them from school property taxes. They don’t have any kids in the system and thus they are not taxing it.

Senior affordable housing is traditional defined bassed on folks who can’t or don’t own property – basically independent living with supportive services. Private complexes can run over thousands a month. Some of the ‘care elements’ can be covered under Medicare. For most complexes, the property is a 3P development with most cases the rent based on a seniors assets vs cost with federal grants and aid under HUD and care Medicare and Maidcaid. Property taxes are not the issue in either cases.

This looks worse then the 1993 Great Plains floods. At that time the Ohio Valley water shed was in year 3 of a draught, so we only had to worry over the Plate, Missouri, and Mississippi sheds. in 1993, nothing in mid Wisconsin flooded. The upper sections of the Wisconsin, Black Creek, and La Croix river sheds are already flooding, and all feed into the upper Mississippi River.

I knew this was just a way for Ralston to get out of the headlines and run out the clock on the session. Now its time to ramp back up the pressure for his resignation for abuse of office.

Good reporting by Chris Joyner Johnny Edwards, but I would like to know if there is opposition to this and what they think could be better.

P.S. I don’t see the language they are referring to in the “current” version of HB 502, but maybe it’s not published yet.

I don’t know about the opposition and I don’t know why any politician should have the right to thwart justice. Why don’t we have a rule like this for doctors, teachers or factory workers who serve? If you can’t do both jobs, don’t serve. Ralston and any other lawyer in office could do the same thing they would do if they got sick or had two trials going on simultaneously, justify the reasons for the delay and request the judge grant one. Why put the burden of proof on the judge? This accomplished nothing but to give Ralston cover to… Read more »

The link about the fuel tax break is all you need to know about why the state of Georgia can have no role in managing the Airport. Two sessions in a row they have politicized a non-political issue to punish Delta, the states largest private employer, for free speech.
