Delta Airlines, an Atlanta-based company, receives significant tax breaks from the state of Georgia. However, after the Parkland shooting, Delta moved to sever business ties with the NRA, resulting in a strong-armed response from Georgia policymakers.

According to The Chicago

Tribune, “Businesses have every legal right to make their own decisions, but the Republican majority in our state legislature also has every right to govern guided by our principles,” said Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.

The article goes on to cite Cagle’s Twitter: “”I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with the @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to

Hi from in San Diego California. This past week I had a health issue that required and ER visit. I am not exaggerating when I say there were 70 people in the emergency room and only two were Caucasian, myself and one other man.
I sat in chairs in pain for over five hours before seeing a doctor.
I was seen while sitting in triage as there were no beds available. Why? because the ER was overfull with Hispanic people most of whom were suffering from nothing more than a common cold or upper respiratory infection. How do I know? I observed them for five hours.
The ER doctor told me that there were at least three hours worth of patients ahead of me and that it could take as long as five hours for the CAT scan he wanted to order. He suggested I would be more comfortable at home making an appointment for the CAT scan through my regular doctor.

I was in severe abdominal pain but I’ll tell you what I have never in my life seen in the emergency room so full of non-emergent cases.
I was referred to a Gastro doctor and I’m now awaiting a CAT scan for diverticulitis.

Hospitals cannot turn people away whether or not they can pay or whether or not they are emergent case or not. Allowing the illegal immigrants to flood our borders is making a major impact on many many things Americans have taken for granted for years.

I hope it’s not you in the ER with a heart attack next time because that little kid with the runny nose May just be the cause of losing those critical minutes between life and death, he who puts you, your dad or mom Or other loved one in that critical time frame between pre-venting a heart attack or reviving him or her from their experience of having a heart attack … while the runny nose kid got his temperature taken.

I don’t care if you’re conservative or liberal if you have a loved one who may or may not survive a heart attack because people are using our system wrongfully you are going to become angry. And if it doesn’t make you angry that 70 people with runny noses in the ER may have caused the loss of life, well there’s something wrong with you too.
The federal government has a constitutional mandate to protect our borders and I support Donald Trump and every effort to do that constitutionally mandated job.

The Conspiracy Nut

He is so ARROGANT in his use of “EXECUTive Orders” that I think Congress needs to place SEVERE restrictions or eliminate their future use completely.

I have always felt his behavior on 9/11/12 was suspicious; the same way I felt Juniors was on 9/11/01…

RELEASE your Emails Prez, if you’ve nothing to hide, why fan a fire you want put out?

1) “there is an enormous difference between politicizing tragedy and using the levers of government to achieve that goal. Put simply, the transformation of the Benghazi attacks into a political drama now serves as one of the most dangerous precedents in American history, one whose absurdity and irrationality can be seen just by reviewing the past. This single Benghazi committee has been “investigating” the attack for longer than Congress conducted inquiries into Pearl Harbor, 9/11, Iran-Contra, Watergate and…

Bryan Zollinger Accuses O’bama of Staging Unrest

Rep. shares article saying Charlottesville was ‘set-up’

Idaho Falls Rep. Bryan Zollinger took to Facebook on Friday, re-posting a conspiracy theory suggesting that the tragic events in Charlottesville, Va., could have been an inside job orchestrated to smear President Donald Trump.
The post, written on a site called “The American Thinker,” is replete with wild, unevidenced claims couched in what-ifs.
“The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning,” the author wrote.
In a comment, Zollinger called the blog post “completely plausible.”
The post suggests, at various points, that the white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville, which resulted in brawls with counterprotestors and an apparent terrorist attack that left Heather Heyer dead and 19 others injured, may have been plotted by former President Barack Obama, billionaire George Soros, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe or Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer — or by some shadowy cabal involving them all.
And it describes both white supremacists and those who protested against them as “groups of demented racists.”
“All of them on both sides are certainly that,” the author wrote, while making an exception for Heyer, whose funeral was held Wednesday.
The post begins by reciting a claim that Obama “set up a war room in his D.C. home to plan and execute resistance to the Trump administration.” That claim, widely debunked by fact checkers but widely circulated by far-right news outlets, stems from an article in a London tabloid, which cites a single unnamed source claiming to be a friend of Obama’s. There is no further sourcing for the claim, though the claim was recently repeated by the National Enquirer using the phrase “war room.”
It then recites further claims, some with kernels of truth, others with none, to make the case that the white supremacist rally could have been staged.

 

“So were the events of Saturday the result of a despicable plan to further undermine Trump?,” the author wrote. “There was plenty of time and Charlottesville is the ‘capital of resistance.’ If it was, it was evil and deadly and the people involved need to be prosecuted. Or is this a wild conspiracy theory? Perhaps. But the pieces fit.”
“Bryan, you have to know this is crazy, right?” one commenter wrote on Zollinger’s post.
“I’m not saying it is true, but I am suggesting that it is completely plausible,” Zollinger responded, adding that “many of the protesters were Soros-funded.”
In an interview, Zollinger said he hadn’t meant to offend anyone with the post, and that on further reflection, its claims are “probably wrong.” He continued to describe the claims as “plausible,” however.
“In hindsight, maybe it was a mistake to post it,” Zollinger said. “I didn’t mean for it to ruffle any feathers.”
Zollinger represents District 33, which encompasses most of Idaho Falls. He was elected in 2016, replacing former Rep. Linden Bateman, who didn’t seek re-election. Zollinger has served one term in the House, where he became one of the founding members of the Idaho Freedom Caucus.
