TL;DR but why did you put about the Senate race here in the national section?

Also–how ’bout them Blackhawks?

“It was bad enough that Gov. Nathan Deal and a majority of state legislators wrote this punishment clause into the law. But they are adding insult to injury by refusing to right the wrong by repealing it.”

Someone tell that MDJ writer that Deal was in Washington when this bill passed.

In the wrestle mania post a gentleman lamented how shameful it was to question the 40/70 long hours the legislators put in on serious business. He hit on the issue but came to the wrong conclusion.

The above lists of legislations drive the problem home. We spend excessive time on how to spend and then tweak those laws to be “fair” to some category. Little time is spent simplifying processes or clearing paths for folks to achieve their goals. Goals that don’t step on others, don’t build public dynasties, are cost efficient and don’t create a nuisance. The time is used to spend taxpayer money to enable people and businesses while spreading their risks to all taxpayers.

Maybe the legislation should meet every other year.
