Morning Reads — August 29, 2013

On this day in 2005, Hurricane Katrina, with 145 mph winds and flooding covering 80% of the city, devastated New Orleans. Interestingly enough, some say New Orleans is on the rebound? Hope it’s not the same track for ‘rebound’ our economy is trekking.

    I expect Louisiana gopers credit President Pinhead for the economic recovery in the same way they blame Obama for the lousy Katrina response.

    “Only 116 members of Congress are on board with that whole Congress has to declare war thing.”

    Well we probably won’t be “going to war” so there’s that. Its also about a decade late with their concern.

    “And, because hospitals will make better health decisions than your parents.”

    I’m just going to post this without comment.

    (OK, I lied. Yes, I fully believe an organization of trained medical professionals can make better healthcare decisions than anyone in my family or all of it combined. Quintuply true for an Amish family.)

    It’s the Muscogee County Board of Education that as the on going drama. The Columbia County Board of Education (just west of August), has a little less drama.

    This deserves a mention as one of the regular PP participants has accepted a controversial board position in Cherokee County – – I applaud John Konop for getting involved because many others declined due to the nature of the issue at hand. So far, no charges have been filed in this matter, but hopefully with the new board comprised of citizens instead of BOC members, those responsible will be held accountable while a viable financial solution is reached.

    Good luck John and thanks for stepping up.

    The fast food worker strike is on! Management: Fire every damn one of them! There are thousands of folks looking for jobs, any jobs! Workers don’t like it, quit! Period!

    I would have given you props if you had gone with:

    * Spy rockets in flight
    * No afternoon delight, Prostitution takes a hit in the recession.

    But you’re young. You may not know the song.

    What, is Collins running for a leadership position already? Criticizing something that hasn’t even happened yet!

  8. Noway says:

    Ahhhhh, 700+ million for concussions for football players! Ain’t this a great country? Money for injuries participants knew they might get? Shazaaaam!!! I might get hit hard! This is Tobacco Settlement II. Neither one of them deserves/d a dime.

      Then on the dark side of selective enforcement we have the directive to take hands off illegals with minors or dependents) All those illegals collecting child tax credits on kids around the world will be thrilled to. Promotes having that baby in the U.S. too !

      Congress hasn’t passed immigration legislation, but that hasn’t stopped President Obama from issuing directives that grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.

      Last week, the Obama Administration issued the latest in a line of policy directives granting amnesty by default. This latest directive instructs Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials not to enforce immigration laws in cases where an illegal alien is the primary provider for any minor child—regardless of the child’s immigration status—or the parent or guardian of a child who is a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.
