Georgia governor chides president over young migrants

I wonder what happened to all of the commentators who are Christian? I guess it is difficult to be both a 'right-wing Republican' and Christian at the same time.

Durst: America is stuck ... on stuck

I wonder what it would be like if we had a Republican President?

Oh yeah, I forgot...two uncalled for wars, the worst terrorist attack on US soil, greatly increasing the wage class gap, being a 'war' president while deserting his part-time stateside national guard post while getting out of serving his country, causing the largest depression since the 1930's and not punishing those who were mainly responsible, letting a greedy vice-president run the country, and basically starting the war against the poor.

Yeah, let's vote Republican again!

Obama gives protection to gay, transgender workers

Oistrakh, we must ask, why is sodomy illegal in Georgia? This law can be used against a male/female relationship too.

And why would you want to lock up gay men? Who else or what other 'people' do you want to lock up for making you feel uncomfortable?

2 police officers tied to KKK in Florida

@TeeWee: Um, I guess we will never know that but still, having a person in power, who makes the laws, and yet who is also a member of a terrorist group that is against the rights of other American citizens is not a really good idea.

Bernard: GOP 10th District candidates problematic

@swimdawg68: You very well may be right. So let's all take off the glasses and look at things without the emotions and expected duties to one form of government or another, and have intelligent conversations with open minds and understanding of other points of view. This way, more often than not, a comprehensive and working outcome for the betterment of the people of this country can happen without special interest groups or monied-men being the only one who benifit.

This can work if people stop being stupid and crude, being ego driven to always be right with disregard to others.

Republican candidates deny validity of Nunn's call against outside funding

One reason the politicians, mostly Republicans, don't want to stop the money train coming from their puppet-masters because otherwise they would than have to speak to the citizens and gasp! answer questions. You know, really work for a living.

Politicians hate the common person. They want to stay locked up in their office, away from the motley rabble of American citizens, and let others (their handlers) think for them and tell them what to do, all the while collecting money hand over fist.

Best editorial cartoon

@Used2baFreeCountry: "He is a secular progressive, that is his religion. But he sure is making the world a more dangerous place for just about everyone. . ."

It's a good thing that W. Bush was just a good ol' christian boy. He just about saved the world during his terms.

More competition might mean lower rates in Georgia health exchange

Smoke and mirrors. Don't believe the man behind the health insurance curtain. He will tell you one thing while slipping in something else in the policy without your knowledge.

VA approves more private care for veterans

"More veterans are being allowed to obtain health care at private hospitals and clinics in an effort to improve their treatment..."

It's about damn time.

The VA had to pay for a wheelchair van to take me at least 6 times 120 miles, one way, to Augusta for physical checkups following surgery, instead of the 15 miles to the hospital near me.

Us vets who live in the Athens/North Georgia area need to go for anything other than a blood test to either Atlanta or Augusta. Many times the VA will pay for travel expenses if we have to travel over 100 miles too. All of this for a 15 minute appointment. I will be taking physical therapy soon and the VA wanted me to travel back and forth to Augusta 2-3 times a week for PT, until I argued that it didn't make a whole lot of sense and wasted a lot of money so it was decided that I am now able to go to Winterville for PT instead.

Depletion of federal highway funds stalls Georgia road projects

@TeeWee: Did you not see the following statement?

"Foxx and the Obama administration want Congress to approve targeted tax increases on corporations, described as loophole closing, to pump $150 billion into the trust fund over four years. That would end a six-decade reliance on the motor-fuel tax alone, a user fee of sorts."

If the Republicans could be concerned a little more about the citizens and not their overlords in the corporate world, motorist may not have to pay any extra tax for road repair money.

But yeah, in general I do agree with what you said.

GOP Benghazi team brings long list of accusations

@TMKvetch: My bad. How could I forget that most myopic neo-republicans tend to forget about the terrorist attack on US soil that could of been prevented, but hey, go ahead, twist and spin the US deaths with Republican/Fox News semantics all you want. If denial makes you feel better, well than, bully for you.

GOP Benghazi team brings long list of accusations

@TeeWee: Ok, I will give you that but tell me this, when the Bush White House was repeatedly warned about a pending attack in September of 2001 and didn't do anything about it, who in the administration got fired? Also when Bush, et al, lied about the reasons for attacking Iraq and in the process killing thousands of US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraq civilians, plus plunge the US economy into the dumpster, who in the White House got the blame for lying?

I'll wait for your answer.

Tea party losing races but tugging GOP rightward

I'm telling you, the Tea Party is the worst thing to happen to the Republican Party. So many of my Republican friends are not voting Republican anymore because of the Tea Party.

    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
