That session was called after the United States Supreme Court ruled in June that Georgia’s 1992 Congressional map was unconstitutional because race played a dominant role in the configuration of the 11th District.

Get the news that matters to you, delivered straight to your inbox daily. ~ The Democrats were too freaked out about so called racism, and downplayed the more serious problems. Demoze thought calling people racist would win the election for them. ~ This is the web without net neutrality. Cable companies want to get rid of net neutrality. Without it, sites like this one could be censored, slowed down, or forced to charge extra fees.

I don’t believe your story about voter suppression. ~ Greg Palast: How Racist Voter Suppression Could Cost Jon Ossoff the Georgia Election That video was not believable. It was heavy on the rhetoric, and shifty with the facts. While there may have been GOP monkey business in this *race*, I don’t believe the election was decided by Jim Crow. The racism obsessed, SJW slant of this report hurts the credibility. If I had a written transcript, I could track down some of the so called facts. Except for one thing: this miserable election is over, and I am beyond tired of thinking about it. ~ Who was the Democratic Party genius that chose Jon Ossoff to be the big money candidate in #GA06 ? ~ Part of the trouble with videos is difficulty in fact checking. Is the Korean organization even in the 6th district? Maybe there were other problems that led them to be shut down. I could go on and on. The story of the missing voter applications is another one that I have not seen documentation of. ~ @ChrchCurmudgeon Funerals can be times of deep grief and sadness, but my pastor would like mine to be a celebration. ~ @ErnestPassion The people that motivate with anger, hate and jealousy have no sense of shame. ~ Thank You I don’t accept friend requests from strangers anyway. I have been receiving messages about “Jayden K. Smith.” That is a flakey fake name. ~ pictures for this monday morning detachment from reality are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Someone else is usually doing a similar quiz. It can be fun to do several, and compare results. ~ @thehill Lewandowski: Trump is the “Hemingway of Twitter” @chamblee54 baby president for sale never worn ~ This quote is from the Massachusetts Constitution of 1780, Article VII. While Mr. Adams may have played a role in writing this, it is not certain that he deserves sole credit. In 1780, the war for Independence was still being fought. It is not certain whether an established government would have said this. There is a sentence not included in this meme… “Therefore the people alone have an incontestible, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require it.” I imagine Mr. Adams would have taken a dim view of an attempt to “totally change the same” while he was President. ~ pictures for this gratuitous waste of the reader’s time are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

As paramedics were rolling Castile onto a backboard, Toran said he saw the gun slide out of Castile’s front right pocket. Toran said he didn’t even have to reach into the pocket to grab it. But St. Paul firefighter Eric Torgerson, a paramedic, testified that he saw an officer reach deeply into the pocket to retrieve the pistol. ~ @KellyannePolls Laughing my #Ossoff ~ Pro Tip to future campaigners: Don’t make a vulgar joke about your last name the campaign slogan. #VoteyourOssoff got old and annoying. ~ The Real Story of the Von Trapp Family ~ Stevie Wonder ~ Something Fishy Happened in Georgia Special Election, Thousands of Voters Turned Away ~ Young Joni Mitchell Performs a Hit-Filled Concert in London (1970) ~ An inventory of Philando Castile’s car: Life, interrupted ~ The dashcam video ~ Why this millennial Democrat’s concession speech sounds like he’s doing an Obama impression ~ John Waters’ RISD Graduation Speech: Real Wealth is Never Having to Spend Time with A-Holes ~ Another question I heard recently has the same answer.

However, both HRC and KCH have yukky personalities. While the substance may be good, the style is terrible. And the show business part of politics is important. There is one other difference. Whatever her shortcomings, KCH is famous because of who she is. KCH is not famous because of her husband. ~ @BillKristol “Talk to the elbow ’cause the hand is on vacation” is a favorite way of mine of communicating with the young hipsters at @weeklystandard. ~ The voters of #GA06 are the winners.

Someone asked, would you rather have a competent scoundrel, or an honest buffoon. They did not consider today, when the President is an incompetent scoundrel. ~ @realDonaldTrump Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action? Focus on them, not T! ~ @realDonaldTrump Obama Administration official said they “choked” when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn’t want to hurt Hillary? ~ I enjoyed seeing you last night. When I got home, I remembered that we had this online discussion/argument. At no time, when I was in your presence last night, did it occur to me to mention this discussion. Until I found this comment thread, to make this comment, I could not remember what the discussion was about. ~ @realDonaldTrump Karen Handel’s opponent in #GA06 can’t even vote in the district he wants to represent….because he doesn’t even live there! He wants to raise taxes and kill healthcare. On Tuesday, #VoteKarenHandel. @chamblee54 Replying to @realDonaldTrump With all due respect, this #GA06 voter is not interested in your opinion ~ 1- Don’t tell me what body part to vote off. 2- Do you live in #GA06? If not, mind your own business. 3- If you live in #GA06, be sure to cast your secret ballot. ~ @realDonaldTrump Just out: The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia.

Whenever I’m writing on the topic of race, it’s difficult to talk about “blackness” and “whiteness” without the quotations. There is a significant degree of ambiguity at play when racial binaries appear in literature. ~ snowflake Not really. I understand snowflake to mean someone who is excessively proud of their individuality. Remember, every snowflake is different, according to legend. I have heard the sf word tossed around many times, and might have said it myself a couple of times.

No. As a black man I’ve always felt a part of the rainbow. And where is the white stripe (because none of the other colours meant a specific race)? Or the trans stripe? Or the differently-abled stripe? Come the fuck on?!? It’s a rainbow. Let it be a rainbow. FYI: THE REASON WHY I WROTE, “WHERE’S THE WHITE STRIPe” — We need to ask this question if we are going to be so tokenistic and literal. It’s a rainbow. A rainbow by design represents everyone. But not literally. We don’t have green and orange people. I don’t need a stripe to represent my blackness. If I’m up there on that tacky flag so visibly, included but at the very same type pathetically separated, I demand that white people also have their white stripe. If we PoC must stand out like a sore thumb in this new age flag fuckery then I do not want all eyes only on my stripe. I want everyone to share in the ridiculousness. ~ cliff sounds off ~ Why have other Gulf states cut ties with Qatar? ~ 12 truths I learned from life and writing ~ Ice Cube Schools Bill Maher on the N-Word: ‘That’s Our Word Now.

The DeBeers family has enough blood money already. ~ You are blocked from following @KiranOpal and viewing @KiranOpal's Tweets. Learn more ~ Funny to see the “Author” of this “Article” trying to be impartial when obviously he vote Republican no matter what the issue is about. Was sad to see the person invading someone’s Facebook page in the hunt for drama and to try “parasitically” try to profit from the drama by using paid ads on s blog post and worse try to link it to get viewership. Just horrible and show that who ever wrote this article (no secret) is irrelevant and a moron. ~ I just published my sixth repost of "Heather has a mommy and a daddy." That is so tasteful, and appropriate for pride month… even if Atlanta does pride in October, when the temperature is below fatality level. I am delighted to see the WCS is still publishing, despite the decided non-trendiness of blogs. As for Heather, is that satire? It is tough to tell anymore. ~ It would look better if the black stripe was added to the bottom. It would look better there, as purple is the darkest color of the flag. It would be a smooth progression. Brown would not be a good addition…there is no place where it would blend in. That said, I think the rainbow flag we have now works well. It is not broken, and does not need to be fixed. ~ @phranqueigh How dare you call me mentally unstable, on this, the day of my cat's quinceanera. ~ requested this from the library. When I got it I looked at the description. I have already read this. ~ The youtube ad was for Karen Handel. It said something about fighting waste. That is not the waist she needs to be fighting. ~ To create art on a sunday afternoon, and not worry about philosophical dilemmas on facebook. An example would be trying to spell dilemma without using spellcheck. ~ debate note 1- why is kch called Secretary Handel? 2- kh "more protection for pre existing condition" 3- debate of transit, kh mudslings about nancy pelosi ~ Try grabbing me by the pussy Mr. President ~ @jk_rowling Just unfollowed a man whom I thought was smart and funny, because he called Theresa May a whore. 1/14 @chamblee54 If you get mad at a white guy, you have permission to call him racist, and feel self righteous about it… 1/x ~ what was context of offending comment? maybe it was because TM is a politician, which means they accept bribes & campaign contributions 2/x ~ @AryehCW Some day Obama is going to be forced to go to Trump’s funeral. @Miceelf88 He'd better demand the long form death certificate ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Or the talisman can be placed in the center of the group, and the next person who wants to speak can pick it up. This is said by some to be a Native American custom.

You say you are “genuinely curious” ~ BTW My problem with WaPo is not that there is white nationalists that support Mr. Trump. My issue is blowing an article in an Arkansas tabloid … which is no longer online … into a blanket statement that the “official KKK newspaper” endorsed djt. This was conflated into the “KKK endorses Trump” trope, which is not true. This also served as a distraction from the more serious issues that DJT had, like his crookedness, emotional instability, and ties to Russia/communism/organized crime. ~ Dear @HuffingtonPost Asking me for my email address is not going to make me more likely to look at your clickbait. ~ We are talking at cross purposes. I mention that WaPo has given a minor newspaper article much more attention than it deserves. This minor newspaper article was used to justify the claim that the KKK endorsed DJT. This claim distracted from the more serious charges against DJT, and arguably led to his election. Yes, the KKK is an obsolete bunch of kooks that wear bedsheets. They are best ignored, as is the WaPo. ~ There is a meme You list 10 bands, and invite people to guess which one you did not see.

Karen Handel does not acknowledge her birth family. A few years ago, I was writing about her. I had to call her campaign to find out her maiden name. The person I talked to said no one had ever asked. How is that for family values? ~ @karenhandel is the Republican @HillaryClinton ~ My sense is that Mrs. Handel is the republican Hillary, and could not get elected dog catcher. She has the charm, and charisma, of a door knob. However, after the November election, and the super bowl, I am not taking any thing for granted. ~ also, calling Mr. Spencer a nazi is a joke… the third reich, for all their shortcomings, had some standards ~ I went for a walk to the Ashford Greenspace. About halfway down Tobey Road, somebody left a black plastic bag in the roadway. The bag contained dog waste. Somebody had run over the bag, and ground the contents into the pavement. ~ A few yards down on Skyland Drive, some Jon Ossoff campaign product was laying on the pavement. It had been attached to the outside of a mail box, and fallen into an ant hill. The ants were crawling over the rain damaged image of Jon Ossoff. ~ At the Skyland Drive entrance to the Greenspace, there is a trash can. It does not get emptied very often, but is still superior to having trash left on the path. A lime green plastic bag, containing dog waste, was sitting in the path. The bag was three feet away from the garbage can. ~ writing is a part of who you are not just something you do. writing well requires rhythm sacrifice reading. not writing is part of writing be a person who enjoys sitting. it’s not about being finished it’s about knowing when to stop and when to keep going. finish what you’ve started . you can do anything you want. style is a mood you generate out of yourself. don’t listen to anyone who tells you how to write. ~ In 1966, Republicans voted in the Democratic Gubernatorial runoff. They thought Lester Maddox would be the easier candidate to defeat in the General election. We know how that turned out. In the aftermath of that election, a rule was put in place. If you voted in the intitial primary, you chose democrat or republican. You must vote in the same party runoff, that you voted in the first time. With this sound principle in mind, I think the rule that you must be registered tor the initial primary, to vote in the runoff, is a sound one. ~ Is this what we have come to..spending saturday night discussing georgia politics on facebook? ~ @vornietom I honestly feel bad for the people on the Placebo March who thought they were at the Science March but double blind testing is important ~ I would look at the source, and remember some of the other bs stories they have peddled ~ pictures today are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”. Pictures of African American voters were taken 02-13-1946, and 06-03-1946, at Forest Avenue School ~ selah
