In reply to: Anti-tax conservatives say no to tax-increase deal »

December 24, 2012

I think the governmnet has shown that it doesn't really intend to fix the deficit with what little revenue it can collect by raising taxes. Anybody who thinks that is as "entitled" to their belief as I am to think they are naive.

The term "fiscal cliff" was invented by the government to cause feelings of anxiety and fear. It's the same old strategy. Stop believing the left AND the right.

Is our country in the crapper fiscally? Yep. But if the government would get it's fat a$$ out of the way we could get around it and fix the economy on our own the natural way; by working hard and producing.

How do you think we got into this mess? The government is NOT the answer. It IS the problem. 16 TRILLION AND COUNTING.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
