BLOG: Will Georgia's 'Slow Poke' law withstand challenge on appeal?

The farthest left lane is there for passing. Not for cruising. And certainly not for distracted cell phone use. It is a passing lane.

GSP troopers getting ready to enforce 'slowpoke' law

Cruise control driving in the left lane that perfectly matches the speed of the car directly to your right is not responsible driving. It is an arrogant or ignorant abuse of the passing lane.

Georgia governor chides president over young migrants

Liberals, keep your sweet "generosity" at a personal level. And pay up quietly without nose-rubbing the rest of us.

Athens to become home to increasing number of refugees

The key word is "legally" which does not include hijacking our immigration system or condoning human trafficking.

The big opportunity here is cheap exploited labor fed by greed.

Detroit motorists under siege in 'Carjack City'

How the country has survived 24 years of this PC, doublespeak for profit mediafest is beyond me. Add a drifting, mindless, self-promo government and it becomes even more astonishing.

    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.

An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
