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: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
