Republicans struggle in Georgia's Senate primary

It is a real shame that all of the GOP candidates want to repeal the Affordable Care Act when that endless effort has gotten the party nowhere and wasted so much time they could have used to do something that actually might help their constituents. I believe that they are so afraid that when people see how good it really is, they will be seen for the farces they are . There is nothing they would do to help us in Georgia if it meant going along with President Obama. We really need representation "for the people" and not just against the president.

Analysis: The 'fever' that Obama has not broken

This article was extremely biased and misinformed. Obama has bent over backwards in spending cuts and the republicans will not give and inch on taxing the wealthiest corporations such as oil companies , who can more than afford to help our nation out. The national debt has actually decreased all four of the years Obama has been in office. Nothing happens overnight and nothing will happen as long as the republicans are determined to stymie any progress that could be made by refusing to work with this administration no matter how it would benefit the country. We were pulled back from a depression by this administration with absolutely no help from republicans. That says a lot.

    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.

    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
