    Banned from Cracker Barrel?

    edit - the story says further down that he can eat there, he just can't campaign there ...

    I guess they're figuring that loving guns and being really, really afraid of illegal immigrants is all it takes to win over Georgia voters.

    Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp suggests truck is for rounding up 'illegals'

    I thought since we are apparently turning purple, we would be getting better candidates than we have had in the past. I guess not, at least from the GOP side.

    Let me help you guys out: You need to focus your "efforts," such as they are, on Casey Cagle. These other GOP candidates are also-rans.

    So, go ahead and dig up some stuff on Cagle to complain about. Maybe I'll come back to address it, and then you can accuse me of being the complainer for responding to your complaints, and say I'm making Cagle out to be a victim by defending him against your attacks. :rolleyes: You know. The usual.

    Georgia is in a race to the bottom on the Republican side of the ticket. It's been embarrassing to watch.

    Meanwhile in Alabama.............. rising sea levels are caused by rocks falling off cliffs into the ocean. These theories were offered by Mo Brooks, R (Alabama) a member of the U.S. House of Representatives Science, Space and Technology Committee :emoji_anguished:

    http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018...r-rocks-tumbling-ocean-causing-sea-level-rise
    The Earth is not warming. The White Cliffs of Dover are tumbling into the sea and causing sea levels to rise. Global warming is helping grow the Antarctic ice sheet.
    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) questioned Duffy on the factors that contribute to sea-level rise, pointing out that land subsidence plays a role, as well as human activity.

    Brooks then said that erosion plays a significant role in sea-level rise, which is not an idea embraced by mainstream climate researchers. He said the California coastline and the White Cliffs of Dover tumble into the sea every year, and that contributes to sea-level rise.

    In identity politics white men have been the default. Centuries of entitlement only makes it feel like victimization.

    It's tough to be a white man in this country.

    Nobody knows the trouble we've seen. Nobody knows our sorrow. ;)

    What centuries of entitlement do my 4th generation Swedish immigrant roots process? This idea of centuries of entitlement would be valid if we were all descendants of the Mayflower. Most of us come from poor hard working immigrants who were anything but entitled.
