Mideast tumult tests Obama approach in the region

So we impeached, but did not convict Clinton over a BJ ?

... and obama continues to disgrace us with all his shenanigans, and no one has the guts to pursue impeachment ? How many times has he perjured himself; and continues to do so ?

What is it going to take ? Our representatives need to show some backbone; enough is enough !!!

If you can not afford to run, then there are probably other reasons that would keep you from holding office. Meet the requirements or start saving for a future election.

In Hawaii, Obama tries for uninterrupted vacation

Let me get this straight . . . .
We're going to be "gifted" with a health care
plan we are forced to purchase and
fined if we don't,
Which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
written by a committee whose chairman
says he doesn't understand it,
passed by a Congress that didn't read it but
exempted themselves from it,
and signed by a President who smokes,
with funding administered by a treasury chief who
didn't pay his taxes,
for which we'll be taxed for four years before any
benefits take effect,
by a government which has
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,
and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!
'What the hell could
possibly go wrong?'

"The democracy will cease to exist when you
take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its
own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"I predict future happiness for Americans if
they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"My reading of history convinces me that most
bad government results from too much government."
--Thomas Jefferson

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of
arms."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The strongest reason for the people to retain
the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in
government."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time with the blood of patriots and
tyrants."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes
the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
-- Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

"I believe that banking institutions are more
dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their currency, first by
inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on
the continent their fathers conquered."

Obamacare becoming focus of Senate race in Georgia

We are rapidly losing the greatest generation of our country's time. Having lived through a depression and WW2. Although many times they had their backs against the wall, they had that," WE can do it now", attitude.

Now, especially in business and Washington, DC., their attitude is, so what's in it for me ?

Athens-Clarke officials hash out weaknesses, strengths of community while plotting future goals

WOW ... what was the AACofC smoking when writing that column ?

If you do not improve the quality of public education in this community things will remain the same and continue to deteriorate even more. One of the public middle schools in east Athens lost 18 teachers over a period of 18 mos. The inmates were left to run the asylum.

You need community (faith) based organizations to work to change bad habits; not the fluff and BS from the ACC Task Force and the AACofC. Use of public funds to support all these big ideas is more waste of public money. Look at Detroit for example.

I believe that, given the opportunity, more intrinsically good people will have an opportunity to learn and discover their real talent and worth. Then Athens can make a correctional turn in the right direction. There are so many qualified and talented people in Athens, including students, that could volunteer and come up with a plan to make various community based assistance work.

Subject: The LA times did this..please read

Interesting

that the LA times did this.. Lou Dobbs reported this on

CNN and it cost him his job. The only network we would

see this on would be FOX.. All the others are staying

away from it. Whether

you are a Democrat or Republican this should be of great

From the L. A.

Times

1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County ( L.

A. County has 10.2 million people) are working

for cash and not paying taxes. This is because

they are predominantly illegal immigrants

working without a green card.

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los

Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in

Los Angeles are illegal

aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County

are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose

births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California

detention centers are Mexican nationals here

illegally.

6. Over 300,000

illegal aliens in Los Angeles County

are living in garages.

7... The FBI

reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles

are most likely illegal aliens from south of the

border.

8 Nearly

60% of all occupants

of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in

L. A. are Spanish speaking.

10. In L.. A. County 5.1

million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish..

(There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County

.)

(All 10 of the above

facts were published in the Los Angeles

Times)

Less than 2% of illegal

aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on

welfare. Over 70%

of the United States ' annual population

growth(and over 90% of California , Florida ,

and New York ) results from immigration. 29% of inmates

in federal prisons are illegal

aliens .

Obama helps hand out Thanksgiving fixings to needy

By Maureen Scott

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors�it seems to have never left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .

Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday - or someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a grandfather or uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-D42fNFNJ0u0/UcxGxB-5OoI/AAAAAAAAZ8M/gGrjZ_PmU_...

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn't really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-p6VcKVp2xhg/UcxHU6g0ObI/AAAAAAAAZ8U/F0m9DpJSmR...

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.

Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

� Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

� Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

This about sums it up . . . not much more I can add to that . .

Former President Jimmy Carter calls for abolition of death penalty

@ Watchman & Athens Hi-Fi - I concur...

If the death penalty is carried out expeditiously it should reduce violent crime. Most people will think twice before committing this crime.

Does Carter mean it is OK, that because of, "unfair racial, economic, and geographical disparities", they should get a pass at taking another's life ?

People need to be accountable for their actions. NO EXCUSES.

    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
