(CNN)On the morning of Donald Trump’s inauguration, Keval Bhatt hunted through a closet in his parents’ Virginia home for the darkest clothes he could find.

The 19-year-old didn’t own much in black, the color he knew his fellow protesters would wear head to toe on the streets of Washington that day.
As Bhatt drove into the city for his first-ever protest, he hesitated.

Georgia Senate refuses to stop unrecorded votes

Senate Resolution 24 to stop unrecorded votes in the Georgia State Senate failed in the standing Rules committee today.  Senator Josh McKoon’s proposed resolution to end unrecorded votes was defeated with an unrecorded voice vote under Rules Chairman Jeff Mullis.  According to the Secretary of the Senate’s Office, any member of that committee could have made a motion for a recorded hand vote. Such a motion would require one third of the committee members present to be approved. No such motion was made.  Read

California Democrats legalize child prostitution

Beginning on Jan. 1, prostitution by minors will be legal in California. Yes, you read that right.

SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution.

Poll: Overall rating steady for Georgia’s Deal, but GOP support falls

Poll: Overall rating steady for Georgia’s Deal, but GOP support falls

Georgia voters have split almost evenly on Gov. Nathan Deal’s veto of so-called “religious liberty” legislation but generally agree he was right to turn away a bill allowing guns on college campuses, an exclusive new poll from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution found.  Those two topics — guns and protections for opponents of same-sex marriage — were the most hotly debated in the first half of this election year. And Deal’s subsequent break with Republican leaders in the state Legislature over them has only stoked a fire expected to linger into 2017.  read

Georgia conservatives lose again under Gold Dome

Georgia conservatives lose again under Gold Dome

“Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide that English is the official language of the State of Georgia?”

— Proposed statewide ballot question for the November election contained in Senate Resolution 675 sponsored by Republican Sen. Josh McKoon.

As a late note on the end of the 2015-2016 General Assembly, here are more examples of Gold Dome reality for people who don’t know how their government really works — and some observations.  Despite a December Rosetta Stone Communications poll showing a whopping 76 percent bipartisan public approval rate for amending the state constitution to make English the official language of government, Georgia voters will not be allowed to answer the above ballot question in November.  read

Political retaliation not over yet?

Political retaliation not over yet?

The latest, and preferably the last, shoe has dropped in the Georgia Republican leadership’s vendetta against its out-of-favor colleague, Sen. Josh McKoon, R-Columbus. (Political payback apparently wears an indefinite number of shoes.)

It was made clear in the closing days of the legislative session, when almost $8 million in capital funding for Columbus State University was pulled from the budget, that Gov. Nathan Deal, House Speaker David Ralston and others were putting heat on McKoon for political differences that are by now familiar.

Carrollton lawmaker on Nathan Deal: ‘And we’re going to be stuck with him for two more stinking years’

Carrollton lawmaker on Nathan Deal: ‘And we’re going to be stuck with him for two more stinking years’

In the last 48 hours, Gov. Nathan Deal has absorbed a great deal of right-flank criticism for his veto of a bill to permit concealed weaponry on public university campuses. But none of the barbs has been as sharp – or public – as that which left the mouth of Kevin Cooke, a Carrollton Republican, on Wednesday.

In an interview on WLBB (1330AM), Cooke began thusly:

“Given this governor’s ability to do the right or the wrong thing, he’s going to choose the latter every time.”

But that was the tame part. To continue:

“People want to know why Donald Trump is the nominee for president. Nathan Deal is the reason Donald Trump is the nominee for president. People are sick and tired of stinking politicians telling them what they’re going to do when they get in office, and then when they do that, they do the exact opposite.”  Read article here

Cochran controversy takes new turn as U.S. Reps weigh in

By Katie Leslie – The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The controversy over former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran’s dismissal, which began with a self-authored religious book that contained remarks about homosexuality, has reached the U.S. Capitol.  U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk and several other Republican members of the Georgia delegation recently sent a letter to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, accusing the mayor of violating “fundamental principles of free speech and religious freedom” when he terminated Cochran in early January.  read

The Art of Teaching Science

The Governor of Georgia, Nathan Deal, who was just elected to a second term, has proposed that he become the education Czar of Georgia by holding the power to put schools on a list that could be taken over by central command, in downtown Atlanta at the Twin Towers.  But here is the “deal,” this simply is a bad deal for schools that are put on a list based on “data” that sets up some schools for failure, according to the state’s definition of failure.    Read article here
