Hm, Gov’nur et al want federal cash for Savannah deepening but don’t want to set up a healthcare exchange. Dunno, maybe they’d do it if they got the Savannah money? #Strategy

No, the stadium is next in line or a high speed rail to Savannah.

One leftist’s take on the Georgia budget shortfall.

“Federal crack dollars.” Agree with Sen. Hill. We need to dump this hospital bed tax. This tax rewards hospitals that treat nonpayers and penalizes hospitals that treat insured folks. More federal Medicaid money only means higher deficits.

So I’m thinking about making a sign for College Gameday that says:

“The Dome is GEORGIA STATE Territory.
“Go Panthers!”

do it. DO IT.

SallyForth November 30, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Ed, you big tease! DO IT!

Ed November 30, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Trolling irl is the best.

SallyForth November 30, 2012 at 5:11 pm

huh? irl?

Ed November 30, 2012 at 5:13 pm

In real life.

SallyForth November 30, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Gotcha. I don’t text much, am a bit behind on some of the abbreviations/acronyms.

Since this is an open thread I have a question. I’m riding down the interstate this morning and hear Herman Cain’s Morning Update, “They think we are stoooopiddd….” God give me strength. Whatever you think of Boortz, he was THE talk radio powerhouse in this city for the last generation. Any bets on how long Herman will last? I say one year then gone…He doesn’t have the chops to carry Neal’s shoes.

AMB November 30, 2012 at 11:59 am

This is a trick question, right> Sort of like, do you want to die knowing you are dying or die unconscious? Boortz is a joke. Herman is a sick joke. WSB should be blown up and re-programmed by the managers of its young days who brought honor and civility in Georgia’a top radio station.

David Staples November 30, 2012 at 12:22 pm

I listen to Boortz 2 or 3 times a week when I go to lunch and in the morning if I’m running late enough. However, if Herman Cain is subbing for Neal that day, I find something else to listen to. I think it’s a personality thing more than anything. They both make valid points at various times, but Cain comes across more as having his positions rooted in emotion whereas I think Neal tends to explain the logic he’s using better. When Cain takes over I’ll probably end up listening to The Bert Show in the mornings, and I have no idea what at lunch.

SallyForth November 30, 2012 at 12:26 pm

+100 Noway, I don’t even give him a year – unless WSB actually wants to lose its audience.

SallyForth November 30, 2012 at 12:34 pm

The guy at the airport may have put eggs on their bus, but our Falcons sent the N/O aints home with egg on their face. Brees and his classless bunch actually got on national television chanting “This is our division,” “We own the Falcons”, and other such drivel before the game. Not so much after our guys picked off 5 of his passes and stopped him from getting a single passing TD – broke his streak, wah wah wah. Matty Ice and the offensive crew were good enough to win it on a night when our defense was on fire. These Falcons are the REAL deal. Live with it, aints.

UGA fans may want to double check any snack foods before purchase:

Ed November 30, 2012 at 5:16 pm

So I’m not saying Alabama is going to beat UGA but they will.

As long as Mark Richt is the coach, UGA will always fall short in the big game.

Aaron Murray is o-3 in big games, he’s admitted he loses confidence in big games. I mean he threw three picks against Florida. Can’t do that against ‘Bama.

UGA’s offensive line is bad. They haven’t really been tested much. They will struggle to keep AM on his feet.

21-10 Tide.
