Obi’s Sister said I deserved the keys to the Morning Reads. Can’t argue with that.

Here’s to un-ironically liking “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood.

PAULA DEEN, Y’ALL!

I’ve missed you

Ed February 28, 2014 at 8:49 am

Feeling’s mutual.

Ed February 28, 2014 at 8:49 am

I’m sorry, I can’t tell a lie. I haven’t missed you.

No links without context, ar-tard.

This bromance contains a little much treacle for my taste. :-D

Meanwhile, only one school in Georgia is having success. That school is Georgia State.

Your Panthers are fresh off the heels of a victory over UGA and are about to clinch a conference title in hoops.

I was so happy to see a Ed morning read, and then… another C&W music link… I suffered through 11 weeks if Buck Owens already… I surrender!!!

Ed February 28, 2014 at 11:22 am

I like both kinds of music: country and western.

Ellynn February 28, 2014 at 12:33 pm

You could have gone with the cover version…

And where is the foodie link? Paula Dean coverge doesn’t qualify and if you have to ask why, I feel bad for your cookware.

Why exactly do you like that Lee Greenwood song? There’s a whole list of things wrong with it, and not just grammatically.

Ed February 28, 2014 at 10:54 am

The message.

Jon Lester February 28, 2014 at 11:30 am

You don’t see the errors in the message?

Ed February 28, 2014 at 11:36 am

There are only errors if you don’t love America.

People are born with rights, whether you believe in God or not; they weren’t given to us by our service members (who haven’t fought for anyone’s “freedom” in a very long time, despite what their recruiters may have told them).

And what, exactly, are we asking God to bless? Abortion on demand? Corporate subsidies? NSA domestic surveillance? Drone strikes on Pakistani wedding parties?

Everyone piled on Rev. Wright for invoking an alternative phrase, but no one stopped to ponder the point he was making.

Ed February 28, 2014 at 12:10 pm

You’re taking this a bit too seriously.

Noway February 28, 2014 at 4:45 pm

No more caffeine for Jon.

Is Jason Carter going to appear with Joe Biden at Drew Charter School? I’m guessing that would be too right wing for him based on his past opposition to real world charter schools.

Laugh while you can, the climate change link may be a complete game changer:

“Two of the world’s most prestigious science academies say there’s clear evidence that humans are causing the climate to change.

The time for talk is over, says the US National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society, the national science academy of the UK.”

And further from the same source:

“In addition, the chemical balance of the oceans has shifted toward a more acidic state, which makes it difficult for organisms such as corals and shellfish to form and maintain their shells.

As the oceans continue to absorb CO2, their acidity will continue to increase over the next century, along with as yet undetermined impacts on marine ecosystems and the food web.

Even if greenhouse gas emissions were to suddenly stop, it would take thousands of years for atmospheric CO2 to return to its levels before the industrial era. If emissions continue unabated, future climate changes will substantially exceed those that have occurred so far, the publication says.”

We need to stop China pollution first, BTW:

I’m never quite sure if Ed is being serious or sarcasmic.

Ed March 1, 2014 at 1:41 pm

me too

Senator Elbert Guillory (LA)
Georgia could use some folks like Sen Guillory to get the Georgia GOP back on track.

Harry March 1, 2014 at 6:04 pm

Wow.

Dave Bearse March 2, 2014 at 3:36 pm

Who knew MLK was a Republican?

Harry March 2, 2014 at 5:22 pm

MLK and JFK were DINOes.
