Lol, Leftist fascism in full display again with Michael. Ummm, lessee here Mikeypoo. Georgia news and politics. Wellllll, maybe you missed it,but just today, our esteemed Governor ( no, it’s not Stacy Abrams, but don’t tell her and burst her balloon) signed “ the heartbeat bill” . That is ,in Georgia news and politics, to quote an old guy now running for potus, an effing big deal. And guess what big guy. Even if you leftists keep squealing like stuck pigs and running to site moderators to make sure every single non leftist is barred from the site , you… Read more »

Hate to burst your balloon, but the “heartbeat bill” won’t actually do anything. Here’s how it’s going to go down…. Someone is gonna file a lawsuit. As part of the lawsuit they’re going to ask for a preliminary injunction blocking the law from going into effect. The preliminary injunction is going to be granted because there’s well-established case law saying a PI is appropriate in abortion rights cases. The case will proceed to litigation. Motions will be filed. Time will pass. The law will not go into effect. Eventually, the District Court will rule that the law is unconstitutional because… Read more »

Hey Republicans, here are some new ideas to suppress the vote:
– Hinder people from assisting elderly voters
– Make it a felony to cast a ballot if the SoS hasn’t processed your registration yet
– Make it against the law to “impede” a walkway within 1000 ft (3+ football fields, almost a 1/4 of a mile!) of a polling place

Stollen making begins Thanksgiving weekend with my mothers side of the family. The standard add mix is dried black currents and cherries soaked; in brandy and walnuts. A few have finely chopped candied ginger. I make one with dried cherries, chopped espresso beans, almonds and 80% dark chocolate, plus lots of bourbon…

And, this language error is not without precedent. I’m old enough to remember when John F. Kennedy, President of the United States, proclaimed “Ich bin ein Berliner”, effectively announcing to the world that he was a “jelly doughnut”.

If we are going to go with ‘German’ donuts, I’m more of a Perishing type then a jelly filled (which are not technically German but are made in Midwest German style bakeries… go figure.),

Our world is truly insane. CNN Contributor Christine Quinn: “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.”
Of course this law is a run to eventually overturn Roe v Wade. Has the nation’s societal tolerance for abortion lessened since 1973?
The SC will ultimately decide again.

Yeah, we need definitive information from the cult leader!

“The governor stated that he would even allow a newborn baby to come out into the world, and wrap the baby, and make the baby comfortable, and then talk to the mother and talk to the father and then execute the baby. Execute the baby!” — Donald J. Trump
