Mom's rapid test was negative.  So relieved.  Was going through all kinds of worrisome scenarios in my head all morning.  I talked to her while she was still waiting, she was convinced she didn't

Well if something was to happen with it, it would mostly be a remote position with the occasional office trip.

The biggest reason that I never moved to Atlanta was the traffic.....so I would only consider it now if I could work from home.

GRTA is trying to convince the freight railroads in the area to let them run commuter trains on their tracks to the proposed station downtown.  That would help traffic greatly, plus another thing that's helping traffic are the white people moving back into the city.

That gotta be overseas. People ain't doing that **** over here

I mean that one dude crossed the street to commit vehicular homicide couldn't have had more than seconds to access the situation and he just goes for it.

Same with those guys on thier bikes, it should've been just two dudes fighting to them and they immediately knew who the criminal was. 

Its surreal like a sci fi movie where everyone in the city is connected to the hive mind except this one guy who picked a bad day to crime.

This is becoming a pattern...

Former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao inappropriately used her office to benefit her family, including extensive planning to include relatives on an official trip to China and requiring her public affairs staff help market a book written by her father, the agency's watchdog has found.

A DOT inspector general report, released Wednesday by House lawmakers, showed that Chao had made extensive plans to include family members in stops she planned to make on a trip to China in 2017, including visits to Shanghai Maritime University and the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, both of which received funding from her family's charitable foundation. The ethics questions about the trip, which ultimately was canceled, were first raised by The New York Times.

It also found that Chao told DOT public affairs staff to help her father, a New York City-based shipping magnate, with marketing for his book, along with developing — and in some ways helping to implement — a media strategy surrounding his work. Chao also directed her staff to help arrange a book signing as part of the China trip, and they were involved in curating a list of his awards, as well as helping edit his Wikipedia page, the report says.

She also asked her staff to inquire about the status of a work permit application for a foreign student studying at a U.S. university who had received an award from her family's philanthropic foundation, the inspector general found. And the report shows that Chao additionally used DOT resources and staff for personal tasks, such as checking on repairs at a store for her father and having them send Christmas ornaments to her family.

This must be the new Twitter chud/Fox News thing.  Fact is that Biden has held numerous press conferences since inauguration plus daily press briefings with reporters, the latter was effectively ended during Trump’s last year or so in office.

Oh, but it’s not a “formal solo press conference”!!!  Or maybe it’s “he hasn’t appeared at the WH briefing room by himself wearing a red tie since taking office!”   Or maybe it’s “he hasn’t given a press conference outdoors standing on one foot.”  Or whatever goofy super narrow criteria they’ll come up with next.  

And that last tweet sounds exactly like the “DEMENTIA!!!” bull**** we saw all last year.  “They’re hiding him in the basement because his dementia is so bad he can’t talk to the press!”. Just utter horse****.

It's literally two folks from CNN who provided that info.

Yeah, I saw Jake Tapper tweeted it, but look who originally came up with the criticism...

Biden just today held an event where he spoke to the press and took a few questions.  The whole “formal solo press conference” thing is just dumb, and again that last tweet is just another iteration of the “DEMENTIA!!!” narrative horse****.

Make him prove it.

They need to. But they probably know he's one hit to the ego away from putting on his MAGA hat. Don't know why anybody's surprised though because I knew he was going to pull this 🤬. He's in his wheelhouse now.
