the pinewood thing is troubling…our son was looking at ga state specifically because their film program had internships at pinewood…

The GA film Academy and certificate programs should be active in that area with the same college programs. It was not, as I understand it, Pinewood dependent. Locals did push for the training when Pinewood was announced, so residents would not be left out of the job market.. I think the local ownership will want to keep those programs alive.

“The two groups involved in this sale said this is a business decision not connected to Georgia’s new stricter “Heartbeat” abortion law…” Pure Grade A bull excrement.

Given that Pinewood is selling their part of the business to the Cathys who supported passage of the law. While their stance which hurt this particular business may be admirable to some, it obviously was not one in which their business partners wanted to be a part of.

https://newsfns.com/2019/08/24/american-carnage-exposes-the-republican-slide-into-trumpism/ The first three paragraph’s put a point on the pervasive hypocrisy at the core of the GOP…. In the summer of 2016, Mick Mulvaney promised an experiment of sorts to resolve just what had motivated the Republican Party’s fanatical opposition to Barack Obama. Mulvaney proposed that the answer was not partisanship or racism, but instead principled adherence to the Constitution . The test would come when the president — a man Mulvaney acknowledged to have dangerous instincts and contempt for governing norms — was a Republican. “We’ve been fighting against an imperial presidency for five and a half years,”… Read more »

Paul Krugman below. There’s no explanation so ridiculous it won’t be used by the GOP establishment to delude themselves. “My favorite until now came from Art Laffer, the original voodoo economist and recent recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Why did George W. Bush’s tax-cutting presidency end not with a boom, but with the worst economic slump since the Great Depression? According to Laffer, blame rests with Barack Obama, even though the recession began more than a year before Obama took office. You see, according to Laffer, everyone lost confidence upon realizing that Obama might win the 2008 election.”… Read more »

That linked article is just a re-run, half-cut and pasted (plagiarized?), and without any of the analysis (minimal tho it was) of the original: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/mar/20/stacey-abrams-nonprofit-fair-fight-actions-politic/ So one wonders if the FEC is nearing action on the complaint. But just from the articles, there were 4 specified instances of alleged improper spending. Of those, 2 of them seem totes fine (the Facebook ad spending and the highlight video) because they don’t invoke any campaign-related issue. The thank you-tour is on the fence, and depends on, believe it or not, whether the former campaign spent any resources for the tour, because if… Read more »
