Federal carbon rule hearing in Atlanta attracts crowds of supporters, opponents

that's fine...except for the 'unsubstantiated' part. It is well documented fact.

Today's editorial cartoon

@Used2baFreeCountry: Boehner saying that ""This whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president's own staff and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill. "...is a direct verifiable lie.

It's great Boehner says they won't do it. It would be rather foolish...AND you can google dozens of current Congresspeople who still say it is on the table, AND find dozens of current candidates who include it in their current platform.

when someone in Congress says something is there...that the Speaker of the House says is not...that fits the very definition of 'Congress hallucinates impeachment'.

when gasoline bills skyrocket as a result of Wall Street speculators, you say that's just business. When they skyrocket and Exxon records quarter after quarter of record breaking profits you say the margins are so low, it's all scale, it's just good business.....

but in an effort to slow global warming, to cut air pollution, you get all bent out of shape? Deny it's accepted existence. Claim it's government takeover.

Profit before people is never good business, nor sane.

Haas: As congressional candidate, Hice knows what he believes

From Hice's book, his own words...."Although Islam has a religious component, it is much more than a simple religious ideology,...It is a complete geo-political structure and, as such, does not deserve First Amendment protection."

Flies directly in the face of Washington, Jefferson, John Adams, and James Madison.

Today's editorial cartoon

3 of the 8 Georgia Republican candidates for senate stated publicly on easily found record that if elected they would vote for impeachment...that was February.

Tea Party favorite Palin has been pushing it all month. Loudly. Even using a poll that shows only 35% in favor as an incredulous claim of support. (math not being her strong point).

@Used2baFreeCountry: so you're going to jump on this latest lie? EVERYONE and their brothers heard impeachment from Palin, Fox News, and a host of recent candidates. Boehner knows he is flat out lying....but it apparently works on some folks.

I think the American people are less turned off by impeachment talk...than by politicians that now try to tell them they didn't hear what they heard, they didn't see what they saw.

should call yourselves the incredulous party.

I love the 'the amount o CO2 is so small' argument.

I defy you to drive to the sheriff's office with ONLY 395 ppm alcohol in your blood.

Thank God it's not 395 ppm of hydrogen sulfide, we'd all be dead.

standard greenhouses use less than 395 ppm of carbon based poly plastic to purposely trap heat. ...CO2 acts in a similar fashion - a verifiable, repeated, known for decades fact.

I can understand someone not getting the science and saying, 'but geez, it's so small'....but I don't get how they can deny what they can see with their own eyes- glaciers melting, sea levels rising, and record temps across the planet. That part really baffles me.

I think and hope you will find that the majority think YOUR and Hice's views are the radical ones.

Do you think community organizers are bad, or just repeating what you heard 24/7 on Fox. Our local Madison County Rotary Club is a strong community organization respected internationally for the work they do. 4-H is a community organization. Kiwanis. The Republican Party. ALL community organizers. Shame on you for belittling community organizers. Heck, what do you think a preacher freakin does for a living? Sheesh!

Sound-bytes without intellect. Great platform for change. Not.

"Hice knows what he believes, why he believes it, and he has an infallible resource to guide him in his decisions. " - what rational minds call 'delusional psychosis'.

Hey, at least I hope his "infallible resource" contains the New part also...you know, the love, and hope, and take care of each other, and be kind words of the one you profess to follow with your mouth...

Study: 35 percent in US facing debt collectors

I "inherited" $20k in credit card debt that my ex ran up after we separated, but before the divorce. In the lawyer negotiations, I ended up with it, though it was not my debt. I was able to talk to real people in their collections, and all 3 cards took .30 to .40 cents on the dollar. (might help to call around Christmas, I think they're on commission).

Study: 35 percent in US facing debt collectors

article implies much more than is likely real. Who hasn't had a bill dispute or false charge that's turned to collections? There's a gym here in Athens, that once you sign up, they will ignore any and all attempts to cancel - if you stop funding the automatic withdrawals from your bank, they will send it to collections. Just how they do.

Businesses can make and take bogus charges you refuse to pay, bundle them, and sell them to collection agencies. Many collections don't care if the bills are legit or not, their goal is to harass you till you 'surrender'.

Legit collection agencies will work with you. If you do owe and can't pay, they can and will often negotiate.

@Used2baFreeCountry: there's that 'will' word again. Like clockwork. Never actually happens, but your repeated use of 'will' and, gosh, 'if' are certainly profound.

hey, did you see where Palin used this same poll to show support for the idea. She, like you, proudly declared '1 out of 3 are with us'...and proceeded to claim this as a victory. See, this is why math is so important!

US fuming over Israeli criticism of Kerry

America sends $8 MILLION dollars PER day to Israel. $57 million per week. $3 Billion per year sent to this rich country. ...while we shutter our own schools and hold bake sales for bridge repair.

...yeah...we're really really fuming this time...yeah.

Sarah Palin launches online subscription channel

what she said and is quoted, was her response to what 'international experience' she had. Don't shoot the messenger for fumbling her idiotic response. It was way sillier than Fey's version. One was comedy, the other, satire.

Hate going to the gym? Dance yourself to better health

"The difference between work and play is often a bass line and a beat. Not one song. Not one way of dancing. Thirty minutes a day, close the door to the world and sweat your prayers."

sweet! The biggest benefit of dancing while/ or 'as if' nobody is watching...is that you get the FULL exercise, but, hey, you're just dancing. It's okay to have fun while getting alive.

The sheer time you wasted reading this, you could have put on some funk from youtube and moved. Your day would be so much the better for it.

GOP works to avert Senate upset in Georgia

I certainly did learn something- she did have a blood clot. After seeing the fireworks show on Fox et.al way back I made the mistaken assumption it was yet another made up story. Course, it was 18 months ago. And it's not like we haven't had candidates with advanced age, heart disease, and cancers (plural) that didn't seem to bother the voters much. Except maybe some saw McCain and his decision to then put Palin a heartbeat away from the Oval Office. .. But I do stand corrected on the clot.

It is merely my opinion that you have never been a supporter of Hillary. That too is an assumption, and it was wrong to directly call you a liar on that. I do doubt few believe you, for what it's worth.

Me, I've never been a supporter or fan of Ms. Clinton. Healthy or otherwise.

@TeeWee: sir, you lie through your teeth. Ain't no one here believes you are a democrat, much less a Hillary supporter. Special glasses? Not (my wife's an expert in the field). Blood clot? Only as stated by Fox News. No other fact-based assessment.

you use the pretense of support to slander the lies about your concern. It's embarrassing to watch.

Jones: Political campaigns frustrating for voters and candidates

maybe the papers could stop feeding the he said/ she said nonsense part and help educate the public on what is actually being said.

Like when they say 'cutting federal spending', what are they actually referring to?

When they talk of lowering taxes, whose taxes, and in what way?

Is repealing Obamacare good for Georgians? Say, versus fixing the parts that need fixing?

Seems the media is more interested in fueling the acrimony and feeding the very beast you decry.

Lawmakers complain Obama too aloof with Congress

the conservative Rasmussen poll has him currently at 46% . Way above both Bushs, and about equal to Reagan at this point in their respective presidencies.

What part of the 'we will give him no victories' direct public on the record announcements by the opposition did you miss?

They LOUDLY declare they will not work with him, then complain they are not invited. I believe the majority of Americans see this as a ridiculous cognitive disconnect that only plays to the rabid base.

...and why do you keep lying about the polls and approval ratings when anyone can look them up themselves and see you are feeding pure bs?

(the Wall Street Journal link is interactive - you can directly compare approval ratings of the last 13 presidents, and do keep in mind the term)

@Used2baFreeCountry: Again, thanks for spelling it out.

we can clearly see where repubs stand on health care for the majority, women's (lack) of equal standing, their remarkably poor record on environment, the wrong side on immigration, the attempts to impede voting, the insertion of religion into politics, and the constant obstructionism.

Keep reminding us.

that's their argument? That he's a 'hypocrite' for doing the same thing they are because he said he wouldn't.

the usual M.O....cite one facet and hope no one looks at the bigger issue.

I recall not too long ago when McCain was leading the charge for campaign finance reform.

Hypocrites calling the other hypocrites. Politics as usual.

    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. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    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
