Jensen: Tea party conservatives consistent with their values

@swimdawg68: Yes, there is plenty of hypocrisy on both sides, which was the point I was trying to make. Regarding Byrd, could it not be that he renounced his sins and was forgiven; like Jesse Helms, Mark Sanford David Vitter and Bill Clinton were forgiven?

Jensen: Tea party conservatives consistent with their values

Hey, numbskull, it's called politics, and the Republicans are better at it than the Democrats because they have no problem with being hypocritical.

What Others Say: Congress needs to learn art of compromise (The Telegraph, Macon)

@proftom: Let's count wing nuts on the Republican side of the aisle, then count wing nuts on the Democrat side and see where the problem lies.

Allen: Harvard faculty gets schooled on economics of health care

The original article says, "The university says the increases are in part a result of the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act,…"

"in part" is not the same thing as being completely responsible for.

What Others Say: Gridlocked government helped U.S. economy

Obama hatred and stupidity seem to go together. The Augusta Chronicle, the official publication of the Tea Party, as usual, gets a lot wrong.

Obama has not been the most anti-capitalist president and the Chronicle can't support their claim.

I wish fixing America's energy needs was so simple as building one pipeline. Again, the Chronicle shows a either a lack of understanding of the facts, or, they are just willfully making grandiose claims.

Shelton: Iran is no U.S. ally in Middle East

Sounds like Iran has been about as much use in solving Middle East problems as the US has been.

Editorial cartoon for January 8, 2015

[quote][b]TeeWee[/b] - We had scary and disfunction.  We had the "Senate of No" and Harry Reid who blocked legislation.  This cartoonist does not understand the disfunction which the voters booted out of office.  Let's give the new congress a chance before we find fault.

We will see if McConnell will bring all those pieces of legislation up for a vote. I don't think he will and nobody will pay attention, especially Republicans.

Thomas: Radical Islamists may be right about Western culture

So, Senile Ole Cal believes the cause of Islamic extremism is that not enough westerners go to church!

By the way, Christians have used the Bible for over a thousand years as inspiration to suppress, enslave, and kill people and destroy their cultures.

Cal Thomas is a hate mongering fool.

Harrop: Kochs' private giving benefits blue states

"So in the end, the strangle-government movement enhances the competitive advantage of the liberal powerhouses. Another irony of red-state politics to throw on the pile."

That doesn't make any sense. It's just another conservative non sequitur.

"he was told not to photograph secure areas and given back his camera. He saw a sign that said as much, he said, but he didn’t take it seriously.
It was the equivalent of a “keep off the grass” or “no flash photography” sign in the United States, he thought. Certainly he wouldn’t get himself in trouble if he broke the rules this one time."

Maybe Mr. Black should stay home, if he can't figure this out.

I suggest Mr. Black stay home from now on if he can't figure this out.

Charen: Democrats not good in fatherly role

Well, like a good Republican, Charon seems to be in favor of torture, starting wars we can't win, denying benefits to working people in need, providing no help for poor children, tax cuts for the wealthy, aggressive and unconstitutional policing, and continuing a foreign policy that does not work but that does make child-like conservatives feel good.

"A manlier approach would have been a steely warning that if one hair on one American’s head were to be damaged by Pyongyang, Kim Jong Un’s regime would be history."

Is she serious? She wants to start a war with North Korea AND China? Heaven help us if we get another Republican president.

Republican; the party of the privileged and constant war.

Carter: Advice for dealing with police

Stealing cigars had nothing to do with the Brown case, except that the police used it to make Brown look like a thug. The officer who stopped Brown did not know about the convenience store robbery.

Carter: Advice for dealing with police

Here's another one: despite the conservative obsession with the Second Amendment, don't own a pellet gun, and if you do, don't sit in a park with a pellet gun, and if you do, don't be Black while you are sitting in a park with a pellet gun... because you have only two seconds.

Carter: Advice for dealing with police

[quote][b]swimdawg68[/b] - @Georgia Boy: Everybody with a monocle of brainpower knows NPR is the "Pravda" of the democrat party. I would argue Fox News viewers are far more informed than those that would listen to NPR or MSNBC. Those viewers and listeners are all part of the "uninformed voter" society.
[/quote]

You can argue that, but you would be wrong, according to the research. Your comment about NPR shows that you have a right-wing conservative mind set. You look for validation, not truth and facts.

Carter: Advice for dealing with police

@swimdawg68:

[quote][b]swimdawg68[/b] - @Georgia Boy: Thank you for proving my point. "Truth and facts are alien to most liberals". Given the facts of the case, I could care less what color Brown was, if I had been that police officer, I would have taken the same action he did. The Grand Jury also came to that conclusion. By the way, just to help you with a few facts, 3 members of the Grand Jury were black.
[/quote]

My remark had nothing to do with the Brown case, it was directed at your generalization that truth and facts are alien to liberals.

Detainee Zubaydah a key figure in Senate report

I disagree with marshaled. Interrogation experts say that torture does not get you quality information, especially when it isn't certain that the prisoner actually knows anything. You must get to know the prisoner and get him to trust you personally. Torture is good at making people feel good when all they want is vengeance. If we are a great nation we do not want to become like our enemies.

Like my Mama said, you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.

Carter: Advice for dealing with police

So, the conservatives seem to be advocating execution by police. We can dispense with a judicial system.

Also, Carter forgot to include "don't be Black" as a way to avoid confrontation with the police.

Schram: Focus on health care hurt Democrats

I wouldn't say the recent election was a rejection of liberalism or of Democrats because the number of people who voted for Republican candidates represents a very small part of the electorate and was far less than the number of people who voted for Barack Obama. It seems the election was decided by very conservative white voters because everybody else staid home.

Exit polls show that a majority of people want minimum wages raised and health care reform, among other "liberal" ideas, yet they voted for people who oppose those things. However a number of races are very tight, which does not indicate that the winner gets a mandate. The winners just gets a few years to shoot themselves in the foot before the next election.

Schram forgets that Americans also rejected Republican policies eight years ago. If the Republicans can't learned how to control their worst impulses they will find themselves in trouble in 2016.

    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
