A Day Of Politics In Georgia

In Georgia, we have smart politicians

It had been rumored for a week and on Tuesday some State House Republicans made it official.

Thirty of them signed onto HR 1886, a House Resolution calling for the impeachment of Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker.

“The Attorney General has an obligation to file suit when requested to do so by the Governor,” said Rep. Mark Hatfield (R-Waycross), who authored the measure and submitted it to the House on Tuesday.

Hatfield and his 29 GOP allies want Baker removed from office because they claim he violated the Georgia Constitution.

Specifically, Article V, Section III which says, “The Attorney General…shall represent the state…when required by the Governor.”

The Georgia State Constitution, Article V, Section III, Paragraph IV clearly states,

Attorney General; duties. The Attorney General shall act as the legal advisor of the executive department, shall represent the state in the Supreme Court in all capital felonies and in all civil and criminal cases in any court when required by the Governor, and shall perform such other duties as shall be required by law.

The state Constitution is quite clear. Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker took his oath of office and has a legal obligation to represent the state of Georgia at the direction of the Governor. He refuses to do so, therefore he is not performing his duties as defined by the state Constitution. It’s really that simple. Of course, legislators will muck it all up because some of them won’t pay attention to the law and they will vote against his impeachment.

Yes, believe it or not, even though we have some very smart politicians, we also have a few really, really, stupid ones…


Yes. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) who replaced the nutcase known as Cynthia McKinney actually thinks an island (Guam) could actually tip over. TIP OVER. What a freakin’ moron.

Wishes, Words, Weirdos, & Washouts

Thank God tomorrow is Friday!

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

Thought #1

Do you still support the health care bill, which will eventually usher in the single payer system, that is being floated on Capitol Hill? Watch this.

Now. Tell me again how you support willingly giving up the very health care system that people around the world wish they had.

Thought #2

I wondered if Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) was happy with “negotiations” in the Senate regarding the health care bill. The latest version uses mirrors to hide the public option behind a trigger, that, if pulled will usher in all of the public option goodness that Scary Harry and company want to force down the throat of the American people. So what did Joe have to say?

I’ve told them that I can’t support a trigger–no, actually, to be more explicit: If they say that it’s unlikely to be [pulled] then it’s unnecessary

All of the backroom negotiations in the world couldn’t hide that public option because Harry Reid forgot he was using a two-way mirror to hide it from us.

Thought #3

Kevin Jennings, President Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar”, has proven he is anything but safe when it comes to our nation’s children or anything to do with our nation’s schools.

On Saturday, it was discovered that Kevin Jennings’ organization GLSEN sponsored a youth conference at Tuft’s University in March 2000. This conference was fully supported by the Massachusetts Department of Education, the Safe Schools Program, the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, and some of the presenters even received federal money. An undercover journalist with Mass Resistance was at the conference and recorded a couple of the workshops. During one of the conference workshops an activist asks 14 year-old students, “Spit or swallow?… Is it rude?”

It gets worse too, but you’re going to have to visit Big Government to read and listen to the rest. The next time you see someone from the Obama administration waving their fist in the air, remember what you’ve read.

Thought #4

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) has proven once again that she is a complete moron.

Yes, you heard her correctly, she actually stood on the floor of the Senate and compared a woman’s reproductive health (aka abortion) to a man who uses Viagra.

What an idiot.

Voluntary Taxes And A Harvest Moon

The birthday party and subsequent “Harvest Moon Photo Op” took more out of me than I thought it would tonight. So I am taking the night off from any in-depth writing.

In the meantime enjoy this short video where Senate Majority Leader Scary Harry Reid insists that paying income tax in the United States is voluntary.

We all know paying taxes is voluntary, until we stop paying them anyway.

Here’s a photo of the Harvest Moon this evening.
