Investigator lays out case of 25 voter-registration forgeries, speculates there could be many more

@marshalld: I consider it a crime to suppress the vote. It's happening all over the US. Makes it a crime-wave.

Benghazi select committee holding 1st open hearing

@snarkydude: good question. And, I hear they were answering phone calls and even making calls!! OMG! Sounds like they were working.

the whole m.o. ...like alll the other so called 'scandals'...is based upon insinuation of wrong-doing. None ever found, but has never stopped ya'll before.

always some 'new revelation' about to be announced. Secrets about to be revealed....then quietly never gotten to.

'Keep Benghazi alive', and maybe no one will notice we haven't done a thing in Congress. ...Just don't for ONE moment give miss this crip about your concern for the dead.

What Others Say: Nothing archaic about Constitution (The Augusta Chronicle)

relate this screed to the article of Kemp trying to suppress the vote. One citizen, one vote. Been the foundation of democracy for 2,000 years.

multiple states in the union, where 'conservatives' are actively trying to suppress the vote

wonder why the chronicle doesn't write about that? Constitution loving my eye.

"...because state law requires forwarding to the government every application ..."

Kemp knows that...he's hoping you don't.

just another example of those 'Constitution loving' conservatives trying desperately to end the 'one citizen, one vote'.

Benghazi select committee holding 1st open hearing

@snarkydude: saying it, does not make it so. You've repeated the same spam we been hearing. Spam that not a single previous committee confirmed...even though they tried hard.

No amount of screaming the false accusations have ever resulted in reality based facts.

so why are we treated to their garbage?

What is the basis for the new meme that liberals ignore the Constitution? None.

'Co-opt' is the word. They try to say conservatives are more Christian...then trash the poor. They say they have more family values...and cry when they are caught. They love democracy more than others...and try to cut voting. Now, they try to claim only they love the Constitution.

only ones I've ever heard saying they want to change the Constitution are conservatives.

Stossel: 'America should say yes to immigration'

we have said yes to immigration, by de facto, in actuality of practice, the reality of the situation.

no matter the administration or noise.

we just give lip service to the 'law' that allow us to jack up the electorate every 2 years. ..and has the useful side effect of keeping a sub-class of workers.

hey, anyone remember when Ga legislators really cracked down with their tough law to rival Arizona's?

now YOU have to prove you're a citizen to renew any license. ..but not seeing any fewer immigrants working their backs off. Ga's farmers are back to business as usual...though a little quieter in their own shoot-themselves-in-the-foot rhetoric.

Still, being Stoessel's leanings and pretend libertarianism, I'm guessing he and his bosses are more interested in flooding the US labor market. It will be quite a day when Fox realizes they can get a better harder working writer for a fraction of the costs.

The Editor's Desk: Unfairness in ethics probe of Broun

what? There's a vague cloud of suspicion over a possible violation that may or may not have occurred? I would not have known this without reading it right here. Thanks.

Georgia utility, solar industry to debate price of energy

Ga Power gets their own guaranteed price, and guaranteed profit margin...but when it comes to solar...

This is just another move to slow solar. They have been clear about that. Despite the lies from their spokes-lackies.

Braves' new stadium has a name: SunTrust Park

Feudal Lords Park. Kinda catchy.

"A new level of intimacy at a baseball park will be created."...gotta love it. Whatever you want to hear, I'll say it.

" The stadium site is not served by Atlanta's rapid-transit system and will be located alongside one of the busiest interchanges on metro area's notoriously gridlocked highways."...because, frankly my dear, we don't give a damn.

Income inequality complicates Georgia consumption tax

"Most U.S. economic activity is driven by consumers. But they become less likely to spend their money as median incomes have remained nearly flat for 30 years..."

fact, as opposed to -

"...these individuals at higher incomes will hire more people and create new companies, which will provide opportunity for everybody at every income level."

wait - these individuals have seen their incomes get higher and higher and higher...just when exactly is this hiring going to happen? They've been giving that ridiculous con job for decades.

Today's editorial cartoon

I don't know about you guys, but I have trouble believing anything Washington and corp media tell me about threats and dangers.

I see great efforts to protect oil, regardless of whether a country has 'democracy' or not. I see an orchestrated effort by the west to destabilize the region that's over 20 years old come to fruition. I see massive money sent to blow up bridges...then repair same bridges...while told we don't have money at home for bridges, or schools, or, or...

I'm proud to be an American - but memes of tough eagles, themselves scavengers of carrion, do not move me to swallow the war indusries' bs.

continuous war...I remember 1984 was required reading in the 70's...too bad so many cliffed it.

there's some difference between proselytizing and evangelizing. Between seeking to convert, and showing your faith.

'teaching' your faith is proselytizing and does not belong in public school.

Ambrose: Compromise may yet be possible on immigration

starts with a made-up speculation

goes to the standard con m.o. 'will, would, might, could'.

follows some out-of-any-context numbers,

and ends with the usual flight from reality.

You loudly publicly state you will not compromise with this president...then cry why won't the president compromise?

The latest version of the 'pres plays golf' meme?...the 'pres does political fundraising'...and like all the false memes before, the repubs do it worse- (real numbers, real data).

why can't you guys run on accomplishments? Why the constant con?

What Others Say: Many questions on medical marijuana (The Telegraph, Macon)

daily we hear of deaths from prescription painkillers. Millions of prescriptions for these drugs that can kill, will get you high as a kite, and are addicting...

heck even over-the-counter ..."Between 2001 and 2010, more than 1,500 people in the U.S. died from accidental acetaminophen overdoses.."...yet, still readily available, even to children, at every store.

let's not even talk about alcohol...for $10 you can buy enough to overdose and die.

but marijuana...oh no!

Alperovitz: Is economic stagnation the new normal?

the economic growth is slow and/or slowing...but it is not 'stagnant'. It is flowing readily. Problem arises when it flows to a smaller and smaller population.

the very concept of 'ever-continued growth' is absurd when applied to the physical world. There are limits to resources. Yeast grows until the sugar runs out, or it poisons itself in its own waste.

"Faltering demand could be offset by large-scale government spending on infrastructure, education and other much-needed investments. In practice, however, it is painfully clear that large-scale Keynesian policies of this kind are no longer politically viable."...ah, there's the rub politics bought by the profits-before-people group.

'Sustained stagnation'...'sustained growth'...imagine if 'sustainability' was itself an economic term and not an adjective.

    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
