The leaders of the State Senate introduce a clearly unconstitutional nullification bill and you write about an actor sponsoring a dinner for the president???????

Are you kidding me? This is the same mentality that led to the Civil War – Sherman’s march to the sea, Reconstruction.

Jim, what, if anything, are you thinking?

WOW!!!!

I have to agree!! This places you in the same category as the legislator who’s fighting for the ban on vasectomies. Let me see… water, transportation, unemployment, crime ….. Take your pick Jim!!!

WOW!!!! Old Hippie

Lets see, Jim wrote about Santorum coming to town earlier this week, wrote about Romney coming to town. and Cain, Gingrich and Biden. And that is just the ones I recall.

So Jim likes to write about presidential candidates coming to town in a presidential election year.

That puts in company with 99% of every political writer in the country.

Jim you do not indicate if this is a fund raiser. Is it? If so, will the guest list reflect the guest list when Perry had the grand opening of the studios? There was a lot of money there that night.

As usual, td, et al miss the point. And of course GOP Jim gets defensive when he gets criticized. My point was that the leaders of the Georgia St Senate have introduced a blatantly unconstitutional piece of legislation comparable to those acts that led to the Civil War. Yet GOP Jim chooses to report on Obama attending a fundraiser sponsored by a second rate actor of (only) local acclaim.

Where is the story about the blatantly unconstitutional nullification bill? That seems much more important than what Tyler Perry is doing.

GOP Jim must not have gotten his invite yet. Or the local GOP told him not to report what’s going on in the legislature.

BTW, I find it humorous that you Goopers defend Jim when his true colors come out. He’s had his lips firmly planted on Newt’s behind for months now.

Seems there are lots of folks who don’t think this is unconstitutional:

When a state nullifies a federal law or regulation, it is passing legally-binding legislation that makes the federal act in question void and inoperative, or “non-effective” within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as the state is concerned. Current nullification efforts around the U.S. have states passing laws that effectively defy federal laws and regulations on firearms, marijuana, identification cards and more.

Georgia State Representative Calvin Hill has introduced House Resolution 1086 (HR1086), which proposes a Georgia State Constitutional Amendment “so as to provide that no law or rule or regulation shall compel any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system and to authorize persons and employers to pay directly for lawful health care services without penalties or fines; to provide for the submission of this amendment for ratification or rejection; and for other purposes.”

If approved by both houses of the Georgia legislature, it will go to a ballot vote for final approval by the citizens of the state.

Georgia joins Ohio, Florida and a number of other states considering similar state Constitutional Amendments to effectively nullify, or resist any future national health care plan.

It appears that Tyler Perry has been using his personal capital gains tax cuts to create jobs. The Koch Brother’s and Friends are using their personal capital gains taxes cuts to find ways to eliminate jobs.

How wonderful. Keep voting for him because he looks like you. That’s really,really smart. Gas will be $ 10 a gallon and a loaf of bread will cost $10 .
It’s about as stupid as the your people lining up in the middle of the night to pay $ 220 for the newest pair of Jordan’s or the new glow in the dark kicks just released by Nike.
BTW Is Tyler Perry a man or a woman ?

People mad that Jim wrote about this? Well there are a lot more interesting things…like the GOP’s war against the uterati, their hatred for the Girl Scouts, the republican conspiracy about Disney, the Muppets, Dr. Seuss and Avatar, Newt’s moon colony ambitions, Santorum’s angst over higher education or the fact that Mitt just can’t seem to win, Ron Paul..is he still running?

yeah, there were some more interesting things to post about.

My mama always said if you don’t have something nice to say then don’t say nothing at all. To the ignoramus who thinks the only reason black ppl voted for Obama IS because he’s black obviously didn’t have a mama like mine. It’s one one thing to be smart & sound ignorant. But to be ignorant & sound ignorant is laziness at its highest level. How hard was it for you to make this a black thing? You start off by stating that a gallon of gas & a loaf of bread will each cost $10, but finished by asking if Tyler Perry was a man or woman. If that question is legit then you truly have no business making any comment because you have no idea what you’re talking about, just like your gas & bread prediction or your black vote logic. Quit trying to find ways to divide ppl & come up w/something that will unite us. If you are truly concerned about the gas prices and/or bread prices then don’t play politics or the race card. There is enough of that going on in Washington already, on both sides. Sorry mama.

What we really need is jobs. Who is the strongest jobs USA candidate? Take a look.Santorum’s plan is the strongest to create the most U.S. jobs and keep them in the U.S….Other plans, including Gingrich’s, do not focus on making U.S. production competitive effectively, so that the jobs will stay here in the USA for our American workers. Rick Santorum respects us enough to tell us the real truth. Common sense tells us: It takes more than 1 vote to pass a law.

Get real! Of course, politics is a team sport. Rick Santorum is an honest, courageous man ‘telling us like it is.’ Other candidates are afraid to talk about this ‘fact of life’ publicly. They prefer to ‘sweep it under the rug.’ Rick Santorum has faith in the good sense and strength of the American people. He has enough faith in us to tell us the truth. Our part as voters is to insure that we elect a strong conservative team in Congress, and a strong, conservative leader as President.

Ron Paul is living proof that voting alone results in failed causes. He used his 1 vote against legislation again and again…and the laws he opposed continued to pass anyway.

Santorum is the only candidate who has already successfully used those skills as a conservative team leader at the national level to pass milestone conservative reforms. He is the only conservative telling us the real facts on the campaign trail. He is the only candidate who will tell us the real facts as President. Watch Santorum’s entire speech on jobs and the economy yesterday at http://www.c-span.org/Campaign2012.

I see that two sissies are getting together in plain sight on March 16, 2012. Everyone knows Tyler Perry is a sissy. And everyone knows Obama and Rahm Emanuel are members of a Gay men’s club in Chicago. http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/washington-insider-obama-member-of-chicago-gay-mans-club/

I wondering whether or not the occasion on March 16th is in support of Brandon White.

I don’t think anyone would seriously challenge the fact that I’m African American…Former NY Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and others in the North chased most of those black perverted integrationist criminals out of their cities and sent them to us in the South. As a result of the absence, NY City etc has become one of the safest and moral cities in the nation. And as a result of their presence, southern cities are becoming exponentially dangerous and immoral.

I discussed this very issure with Civil Rights Activist Hosea Williams before he died. The only thing he could say is that “the north has defeated the south again.”
