To many of us of draft age, the Vietnam war was a meat grinder. Those of us who questioned it were not all unpatriotic, peaceniks. This wonderful country has and does make tragic mistakes....Not sorry for having questioned and opposed it, still very sorry for those who lost loved ones and those prosecuted and persecuted for their outspoke concerns.posted @ Sunday, April 7, 2013 - 06:41
@Jerry NeSmith: Come on Jerry, with a pen stroke, the President could even it out. A great PR coup for him. I do not see the need to explain it away or compare how well women at the White House do relative to women elsewhere. In that venue, they are not paid as well as men. Obama decries the inequality at rallies yet allows it to continue under his watch. The White House would be a great place to remove the glass ceiling. As far as I am concerned, this not a partisan issue. Would it be ok if Hillary were elected and made less that Obama or Bush?posted @ Tuesday, March 26, 2013 - 06:09

I suppose on political matters, i.e. not matters of rational thought or science, we all really just have our points of views/opinions. A profit motive does not necessarily negate the veracity of a point of view. I'm guessing that most of us here have varying backgrounds and motives...including editors.posted @ Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - 06:26

The Brookings Institution whittled down a lot of analysis into three simple rules. You can avoid poverty by: 1. Graduating from high school. 2. Waiting to get married until after 21 and do not have children till after being married. 3. Having a full-time job. If you do all those three things, your chance of falling into poverty is just 2 percent. Meanwhile, you’ll have a 74 percent chance of being in the middle class.

Meanwhile, a global perspective: While some government officials were busy planning how to disarm Americans, other officials were negotiating the transfer of F-16s and Abrams tanks to Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist group whose motto is, “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, Jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal."
Obama is unwilling to trust Americans with an AR-15, but is willing to trust a genocidal terrorist group with Abrams tanks and F-16 jets. (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/disarming-americans-arming-terr...)posted @ Thursday, January 17, 2013 - 07:13

Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. Highlight: Would set hours of operation of each Athens-Clarke County "building campus" -- e.g. City Hall, the courthouse and Dougherty Street government building -- at 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Park hours would either be set by the Athens-Clarke County manager or the Mayor and Commission. The ordinance has been derided by members of Occupy Athens and others as seeking to enforce a curfew on public property, thus damaging their First Amendment right to peacably assemble for long-term protests. read more
