Have you noticed it is still politically correct to use slurs that denigrate southern whites?posted @ Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 17:31
"Deen says she likely used the slur in the 1980s after a black man held her at gunpoint at the Georgia bank where she worked."
I am old enough to remember when robbing someone at gunpoint was viewed as worse than using a racial slur. . .posted @ Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 17:24

The leftist loons are quietly raising the dollar amount used to calculate the "social cost" of carbon to fight global warming.

Democrats want illegal aliens and convicted felons to be able to vote.
On the other hand, democrats do not want to ensure that our military serving overseas are able to vote.
Doesn't it tell you something about the democrats that they have the support of illegal aliens and convicted felons, but not so much our military?posted @ Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 12:20

Get rid of state laws that suppress voting by illegal aliens, and a movement to give all convicted felons the right to vote. . .
That should help the democrats in 2014!
Now watch them continue to avoid enforcing the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act. . .posted @ Monday, June 17, 2013 - 15:21

If you are a small business owner you better not refuse to hire a job applicant because he is a convicted felon, or Obama's EEOC may open an investigation on you!
In fact, you put yourself at risk with the EEOC if the job application form even asks the applicant about their criminal history.
Isn't that amazing?
But it gets even better. The article linked below notes that:
"Because minorities have more credit problems, the EEOC has been suing companies that conducted credit checks on job applicants."
Better not ask job applicants if they are convicted felons or do a credit check on them.
Have you noticed that the EEOC is doing all of this at the same time that liberals are pushing to give voting rights back to all convicted felons?posted @ Monday, June 17, 2013 - 13:46

Do you remember how Obama said he planned for energy prices to skyrocket?
Or how about this statement by Obama's Energy Secretary?
"Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe."
Liberals are giddy with excitement, as expressed by Mayor Bloomberg:
“Even though the coal industry doesn’t totally know it yet or is ready to admit it, its day is done. … Here in the U.S., I’m happy to say, the king is dead. Coal is a dead man walking,”
When your power bills skyrocket (just like your health insurance premiums), if you voted for Obama, shut your mouth and do not whine, that is what you voted for!posted @ Monday, June 17, 2013 - 10:28

[quote][b]kemosabe[/b] - Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell is a crook.
Your post got me curious, so I found the news item linked below.
McDonnell is an establishment republican, and here he is in support of voting rights for convicted felons, while under investigation himself.
I remember how George Ryan, the establishment republican governor of Illinois back in 2003, commuted a large number of death sentences to life imprisonment before he ended up in prison himself for corruption.
If you find yourself in trouble, maybe you come out in support of a position that you know will get you some good press from the mainstream media. . .posted @ Sunday, June 16, 2013 - 13:11
Do you realize that if at least 341 convicted felons had not illegally voted for Al Franken in the 2008 Senate race in Minnesota, the democrats would not have had the 60 senate seats necessary to prevent a republican filibuster of Obamacare?posted @ Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 23:17

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
The Athens Banner-Herald sports staff combined to win 11 individual awards on Sunday at the Georgia Sports Writers Association's annual meeting in Marietta. You can get a few more details on that in this story ? "Banner-Herald sports staff wins 11 awards" ? and I thought I'd provide some links to the winning stories for the curious. The awards were for the sports staff's work in 2012. read more
