Don't Give Up, It Ain't Over

November 8, 2012

It seems that some people think conservatism is dead and buried. Far from it. We may have lost this election but we didn't have much to pick from on either side so I am going to call it a draw. I don't think Romney or Obama care about America and what made us the country we are. We must hold fast to our values and we can't depend on the goverment to help us.

After reading the comments posted by the liberals here over the last couple of days I will have to say I have been a bit disappointed in some of you. Many if not most of the comments were nasty as hell and I saw a side of some that I didn't think you would lower yourselves to. I know some of you are better than that as I have read your comments for a while now. I don't always agree with you but at least you did have a level of consideration for others that did not share the same views and for that you had my respect. I guess you were just caught up in the moment but If we are all honest here some of them were uncalled for. Their were some new voices that did push things a bit much. I think a couple of them must have been first time voters and I remember that feeling when I voted the first time. In my first election I voted for Jimmy Carter. I learned from my mistake, but I am a bit older than some of you and I don't mind admitting when I am wrong.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
