Stanford: Let's address real problems at southern U.S. border

We need Congress to man up and do its job. Which, will not happen. Our illegal immigration problem needs to end in Congress before it ends at the border.

Obama to GOP: 'Stop just hating all the time'

@Greg Benson: Time for the conservatives in Congress to restore that freedom. By the way...what freedom have you actually lost?

Obama to GOP: 'Stop just hating all the time'

Don't always agree with this president but I do this time. Time for Congress to stop whining and complaining, on both sides, and accomplish something for the American people.

Key prosecution witness heard in ex-Va. gov trial

Would have gotten away with it in Georgia. Our laws are written to protect politicians and not the citizens. Maybe after this is over McDonnell will move to Georgia and run for governor. We have a habit of electing the corrupt and unethical down here!

Immigration advocates in Georgia call for congressional action

My plan: 1. Congress cancels its recess to deal with this emergency.
2. Come up with emergency procedures to take care of these
children. They do seem to be seeking asylum from a place
not fit to live.
3. Fund the completion of the wall between us and Mexico.
4. Mobilize the National Guard in each border state to help stop the
flow.
5. Comprehensive plan to deal with the illegal immigrants already
here.

This would be a time for John Boehner and Harry Reid to step up, be leaders, and do their jobs. Problem is they won't. Boehner is happy for the President to deal with it so he can whine and complain until the November elections. He serves the Republican Party and not the citizens of this country. Harry Reid will try to obstruct anything Boehner proposes and block legislation because he works for the Democrat Party and not the citizens of this country. Sadly, nothing will be done, 6 months from now we'll have the same problem. We don't have a border problem...we have a Congress problem.

AD McGarity "disappointed" with recent football arrests

“We all like Mark Richt, think he’s a wonderful guy, but those numbers, those numbers are awful,” said Rod Gilmore, a former Stanford defensive back. “You have to clean that up.” The sad thing is they do not "have to clean that up". If they did "have to clean that up" there would be sanctions from either the SEC or the NCAA. We're talking big money here and money writes the rules.

Trial reveals governor's wife had 'crush' on CEO

Had they lived in Georgia this would be fine. Our elected officials write laws to protect themselves against this sort of thing.

Mayor: Atlanta should welcome immigrant children

Playing politics is more important than the lives of children...everyone in Georgia should know this by now. If Jesus was President and a Democrat, lots of Georgians would would change religions to score political points. Again, all debates aside, these are children and we have to solve this problem now. Yes, we need immigration reform and have for the past 10 years. Take care of this problem and fix the illegal immigration issue. Obama did not create this. It was placed upon him by a Congress that does not have the guts to deal with illegal immigration. Too many special interests have paid for the mess we have today...on both sides.

In GOP South, pushback against Obama climate rules

We love coal dust and pollution in the South! It's good for you...but not for me and as long as I live far enough away from it I don't care if you breath it. God would not have made coal dusty if he did not want us to breathe it...when he created the world a few years ago.

Soldiers get $92M in debt relief under settlement

A company from Georgia failed to disclose its interest rates. What a surprise. When it comes to taking advantage of someone....anything goes in Georgia as most large businesses in this state own the legislators who pass the laws that regulate the industries.

Dupuy: Take care of kids at U.S. southern border

Yes, these children are here because of a law. Yes, they are children and deserve protection. Yes, we need to look at this problem and find a better solution than we what we have now. Take care of the children AND take care of the problem. Congress used to do these things but have passed the responsibility of doing something to the White House...so they can complain about it and blame the outcome on someone else. Yes, we have children at our border but we have babies in Congress.

Grimes: Trading Broun for Hice in Congress would be trading thorns for scorpions

Hice is a scary candidate who wants his religion to dictate our government and our personal lives. He says government should not interfere in the lives of people yet leaves out the part about this only applies to people just like him. Hice wants to force his brand of morality on the rest of society. The sad thing is he will probably win, be an embarrassment to Georgia, thus fulfilling the wishes of his supporters.

Sarah Palin launches online subscription channel

@TeeWee: You are correct. She said "you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska"... I stand corrected.
Now she only resigned after 18 months as governor of Alaska and had a failed Vice Presidential bid. I believe I am correct about those.

Pitts: Keep the kids, deport Congress

AMEN! Congress and the White House are responsible for not having a plan to deal with this mess. This would be an opportunity for John Boehner and
Harry Reid to actually get something good accomplished. Sadly, it won't happen because of politics. Boehner and the republican led house would rather wait until the President is forced to do something and then whine about it to win votes. Reid will not allow anything of substance to come to the Senate floor because of his unerring devotion to the democrat in the White House. Like Pitts said, Bush had a decent plan back in 2006 but politics sank it. 2006 was eight years ago and nothing has been done since. Another thing I've noticed is when the republican mouths speak of these illegal immigrants they conveniently leave out the word "children". This particular part of the problem is illegal immigrants who are children. There needs to be a specific plan on how to deal with these children. And while that plan is being developed, fix the adult problem as well.

House panel clears way for vote on Obama lawsuit

@TeeWee: I do agree our government is in sad shape. I don't believe we have any leadership either. From the House to the Senate to the White House. All we have are partisan politics and extremists who either force their way or refuse to change anything. The American people are so cut off from their government its pitiful. Our founding fathers did not create this nightmare and would not recognize the government we have today.

House panel clears way for vote on Obama lawsuit

Wow...the repubs are actually doing something. This will make my life so much better. Oh, not really. All this will do is provide a news story until the November elections which is the purpose anyway. If there were such a thing as justice in the political world the entire Congress would not be there. I'm so proud that
John Boehner finally took the lead on something...anything...albeit something that doesn't matter. Such a fine Leader of the House and he has accomplished so much...whining that is. Ironically Boehner is sueing the President for doing too much. Boehner should be sued for doing too little. The Healthcare Law is four years old. It could have been fixed by now.

    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
