The republican party has totally lost my support because they have refused to cooperate with President Obama from day one. That has been their ONLY objective and they have done the country a horrible disservice and made sure nothing was accomplished. I am not a real "left wing democrat" but I surely have become anti-conservative the past few years.
As for the fall elections, don't count your chickens too soon….you may be surprised. That is my consolation.

I find it difficult to believe that people actually voted for Hice and the fact that they did makes me question the IQ level of people in this district. I did not think it possible to find a candidate that would be worse than Broun but we managed it! My only consolation is that like Broun, Hice will be totally ineffectual and accomplish nothing. And he will provide some laughs for the rest of the country, at the expense of Georgia.
The worst part is that he will just waste his time in congress, like Broun did, and try to be "against" everything that comes up. We really need someone in the office, republican or democrat, who is willing to compromise to get something done to move the country ahead. We cannot afford any more "grand standers" who only want to say "look at me, I am saying no to everything!"
I will be voting for the democrat but without much hope. Sad

Well, good luck Sarah. She has every right to do this and I am sure there are those who will actually pay to listen to her ridiculous ideas (such as the recent rant that God would prefer to have Obama impeached). I won't be one of them, however. I won't even watch her when she appears on my TV free of charge.
I do find it a bit frightening that people would pay to listen to her because it means there are people out there who actually take what she says seriously. And, they vote!!

As democrats, my husband and I only had one race to vote in but we made the effort and went to the polls. Everyone should realize what a wonderful thing it is that we have open and free elections and take advantage of that!

So the insurance for the family of this spoiled child will pay money to the severely injured child's family. Big whoopee. What does that teach the drunken fool? Carry enough insurance. I hope he is truly punished at some point, a term in prison would seem fair. I assume the insurance company will also have to pay the other injured persons as well. The insurance company will probably be looking to drop this family ASAP!

You cannot fix stupid. Let the idiot stand by his comments, hopefully he will be voted out at the next election.

Pigs are actually more intelligent than many other animals.(including some humans I could name). They rank with dolphins, I think. I would not eat one and found this story disturbing.

Unfortunately, it is frequently pit bull owners who neglect or refuse to get their dogs neutered or spayed. I know that the pit bull can be "sweet" but I try to avoid it whenever possible.

This mentality just puzzles and appalls me! Give away a gun in a church service? Has this pastor (I use the title lightly, I doubt he set foot in a seminary) even read the gospels? Where did Jesus say that weapons should be raffled? I hope that sensible Baptists rise up and put a stop to this nonsense! This behavior just adds on to the bad name that Christianity is getting in this country.
Although, come to think of it, this man is not Christian so it should not reflect on true Christians!

I will admit to not understanding the law on this one. I really thought, when I read this that it would be impossible to find someone guilty of murder if they were sitting in the car and not involved in the shooting. I am assuming that this is not true and he could have been found guilty.
My sympathy goes out to the family who have been suffering over this for a long time. Hopefully the judge will give this man a long sentence based on what he was found to be guilty of even if he cannot sentence him for murder. He should get the maximum allowed.

She deserves every minute. One reason some people are so against programs like medicaid is because of the fraudulent behavior of people like this scum.

Enjoyed this game and all the previous home games. These young women can be proud of the work they did this year. Want to wish Khaalidah the best of luck in whatever she does after graduation. She will succeed in life!

This is sad. Sympathy to all who knew and loved Ranger.

I am all for this. I try to watch how much sugar is in products and would like to know which products have added sugar. Also, I have thought for a long time that the serving size listed was unrealistic. As someone who does read most labels, I applaud this.
Will those people who really need to watch calories pay any attention? We can hope. You only have to look around you to realize that far too many of Americans are oversized.

I am puzzled about this. I have a family member teaching in Oconee county and she is expected to make up 40 hours, I think. She can do this by documenting time after school that she uses to work on things that will help the students. She already works 2 or more hours every day after school lets out, trying to keep up with the work load, so this won't be difficult for her. But, my question is, do other government workers have to make up time lost? What about UGA faculty and staff? What about city hall workers? Why is it that the teachers and school employees must make it up? Do those working in the school system's central office have to make up time? Is this being handled fairly or is it once again a case of calling on the teachers to go above and beyond what others are asked to do?

I think this makes the state of Georgia look like it is made up of a bunch of backward looking jerks. It has been shown over and over again that the confederate flag has become a symbol of racism and discord. This may be unfair and unfortunate but it is a fact. Therefore, why should the state want to display this symbol on its license plate?
And also, unfair or not, if I see this plate on a car, I will immediately think "redneck"…not "honorable descendent of a confederate veteran." It is a pity that a design has become that negative to much of the country, but it has.

@swhitney:

Well said! I find it entirely comfortable to believe in God and to accept science. They are not mutually exclusive.
It is so amazing to me that people still believe that the Bible is the literal word of God or was ever intended to be the REAL explanation of creation in 2014. This is despite the knowledge that we now have to who wrote the Bible and who chose what would be included in it. I know that a lot of people are home schooling their children with religious answers to scientific questions and I am sad for the children who will eventually face the reality of science and not know what to do with it.
Anyway, thanks for your very artful reply.

Started to read this with interest but when I saw the source of information was Fox news, I immediately changed my mind about the validity of what was said. No one will ever impress me by stating anything they learned came from Fox.

@grove600:

What you say is absolutely true, but it would apply to any kind of health insurance so is not limited to the ACA. At least with the ACA those who could not get insurance due to previous illnesses or conditions can now obtain it. Paying for it in the face of adversity will be no different than paying for it with any insurance.

posted @ Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 14:35

Thank you Nancy for posting this example of how the ACA is working for those with pre-existing conditions. Of course there are many who want the bill to fail or be repealed but there are many more out there who are benefiting from it.

Thank you for this article as I now feel I understand the farm bill a little better. It seems like a fair bill, each side getting some things and losing some things.

The way you include this, it sounds as if the reporter in this story made that remark! If he did, I certainly did not hear it and I watched the replay several times. I think you need to make it clear that you were not quoting him. The reporter looked totally stunned when this thug of a politician came back to threaten him! Grimm should be sanctioned, at the least. Disgusting behavior.

Sounds like the judge has a lot more sense than the jury! I have been on those juries where the people think that because the defendant is a business they have unlimited pockets and they can "sock it to them". While Equifax was surely at fault, I think the woman has been fairly compensated.

This letter brought a smile to my face on this wintry morning. I doubt that Broun can understand satire, it does take a higher level of intelligence, after all, but the rest of us can enjoy it.

    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
