    Creepy RWNJ governor of Georgia will veto the hateful and discriminatory anti-LGBT “religious freedom” bill in that state. One down; NC to go (for all I know NC already chucked it). Yuck. They got caught at their creepy ways!

      Deal’s “legacy” has been bringing jobs and revenue to GA. I wondered if he would allow that to be tarnished…he had a lot of pressure/threats from Republicans and religious groups to sign it.

      The measure โ€œdoesnโ€™t reflect the character of our state or the character of its people,โ€ the governor said Monday in prepared remarks. He said state legislators should leave freedom of religion and freedom of speech to the U.S. Constitution.

      โ€œTheir efforts to purge this bill of any possibility that it would allow or encourage discrimination illustrates how difficult it is to legislate something that is best left to the broad protections of the First Amendment,โ€ he said.



      Still can’t forgive him for not going with the Medicaid Expansion.

    how about a constitutional amendment to make a third of supremes retire at the end of every presidential term and making the confirmation of new prez’s picks within a month of his presidency mandatory?

      Though you might get rid of a justice or two that you might not like, you’d also might get a justice you despise to take the place of the justice you like.

        Sure, that’s part downside. Each batch of three gets a 12 year term, which should be good enough. Since it’s a 6 to 3 at every term, the balance is not likely to be shaken up that much. Any thing is better than the current silly for life judges system even when they have hit senility.

          Oh trust me I understand what you are saying, maybe its time to put a term limit on Supreme Court Justices.

            In my world Don they all have to retire at age 70. Allows a good turnover and some young ‘uns into the mix on a regular basis.

    Morning folks! It’s sure good to see that the Easter bunnies in WDC are not ‘under the weather’. Looking out my window it’s dreary, overcast, drizzly and not looking like fun at all so I was apprehensive that the WDC bunnies would be encountering similar weather. So happy the weather there looks so much better!

    Happy, and healthier, last-week-in-March 2016 to everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Brussels attacks: Belgium releases terror murder suspect.

    A man known as Faycal C, the only person arrested and charged with involvement in the Brussels attacks, has been released for lack of evidence.

    Belgian media have given the man’s full name as Faycal Cheffou.


    n a statement, the Belgian federal prosecutor’s office said: “The indications that led to the arrest of Faycal C were not substantiated by the ongoing inquiry.

    “As a result, the subject has been released by the examining magistrate.”

    He had been charged only two days before with “taking part in a terrorist group, terrorist murder and attempted terrorist murder”.

    Belgian public TV and Le Soir daily identified the freed man as Mr Cheffou, a freelance journalist.


    wonder how the murkans wuuld freak about if such a thing happened inside US.

    Why more and more in U.S. are returning to work

    Hundreds of thousands of Americans are streaming back into an improving labor market as employers raise wages and hire less skilled job candidates to cope with an intensifying worker shortage.

    Hundreds of thousands of Americans are streaming back into an improving labor market as employers raise wages and hire less skilled job candidates to cope with an intensifying worker shortage.

    The portion of the U.S. population working or looking for jobs โ€” known as the labor force participation rate โ€” has risen to 62.9% from 62.4% since September, Labor Department figures show. The rate had been falling since 2008, mostly because of baby boomer retirements, and that’s still expected to be the long-term trend.

    Yet part of the decline was caused by a bruising post-recession job market that prompted discouraged workers to drop out of the labor force and many other unemployed Americans to retire, go on disability or return to school.

    At least some of those idled workers are returning to work or looking again now that the jobless rate has fallen to 4.9%, a level many economists consider full employment. They’ve been drawn back by employers who are raising pay or becoming less selective.


    so, let’s hear once more how obama has been a failure, disappointment, blah, blah.

    pearls, swines and all that.

    A model first lady, despite receiving unprecedented scorn
    By Courtland Milloy Columnist
    March 27 at 7:00 PM

    I recently attended a White House event that featured the cast of the Broadway hit โ€œHamilton.โ€ But it was the host for the occasion who was most impressive: first lady Michelle Obama, still standing tall, chin up, despite nearly eight years of enduring the kind of crudities that the wives of some of the current presidential candidates are starting to get a taste of.

    Personal insults in politics are certainly nothing new, and even first ladies have long been regarded as fair game. But racial contempt for the Obamas and the development of so many new ways to express it resulted in an unprecedented barrage of ugliness toward her.

    In a speech to graduates at Tuskegee University in Alabama last year, she recalled having โ€œa lot of sleepless nights .โ€‰.โ€‰. fearing how my girls would feel if they found out what some people were saying about their mom.โ€

    But itโ€™s not just uncivil discourse that poisons the political environment.

    Just chiming in for a brief moment to wish dudette a speedy recovery on this Easter Monday, and some yummy eating of Easter dinner leftovers, if her tummy will allow. Hope it was all uneventful for you dudette, at least today’s part. No comment on yesterday’s “events”. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Why? Trump will go Loco on Rafael Eduardo Cruz. MSM will keep feasting on this Dirt.
