Yes, the Constitution is a very liberal document, as it ensures the protection of the rights of the individual.
The Perdue campaign seems to have adopted the national GOP strategy in its attack ads, i.e. a vote for a Democrat is a proxy vote for Obama. The Nunn campaign has focused it attacks at Perdue on specific issues, i.e. his past embrace of outsourcing, his gender based wage discrimination lawsuit, and his "[education] ain't in the constitution" stance. While Perdue is palling around with national Republicans like McCain, Cruz, and Paul; Nunn is sticking with the locals.posted @ Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 14:21
Perdue's ads claim Nunn will just go allow with Obama's policies, yet Perdue's the one who's palling around with outsiders promoting a national agenda.posted @ Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 12:14

No doubt it's due to those Obama-Nunn policies at least according to David "I'm proud of it (outsourcing)." Perdue.posted @ Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 08:46

We should end the schrade and admit that players are full time employees of their athletic associations and part time students of the school, if that. They should be properly compensated for their services and the risks they take to their health, as well as be allowed to unionize, just like in the NFL.posted @ Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 08:09

83% of black people still believe Obama is doing a good job. And these are some of the people that will be a majority in 2040.
Hispanics make up a larger percentage of the minority population than blacks, and they are the fastest growing ethnic group. Obama's job approval rating among Hispanics is currently below 50%.

Evidently the meaning of the c-word and the n-word are similiar and depends on who's saying it and in what context.
Cracker, sometimes white cracker or cracka, is a usually derogatory term for white people, especially poor rural whites in the Southern United States. In reference to a native of Florida or Georgia, however, it is sometimes used in a neutral or positive context or self-descriptively with pride (see Florida cracker and Georgia cracker). - Wikipediaposted @ Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 08:26

The State Department has consistently communicated the risks of and posted warnings against travel to North Korea. While I'm glad Mr. Fowle is back, he should compensate the federal gubbermint for expenses incurred for his repatriation.

North Korea Travel Warning
Last Updated: May 20, 2014
The Department of State strongly recommends against all travel by U.S. citizens to North Korea (Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK). This replaces the Travel Warning for North Korea of November 19, 2013, to update information on the risk of arbitrary arrest and detention of U.S. citizens in North Korea.
Travel by U.S. citizens to North Korea is not routine, and U.S. citizen tourists have been subject to arbitrary arrest and long-term detention. North Korean authorities have arrested U.S. citizens who entered the DPRK legally on valid DPRK visas as well as U.S. citizens who accidentally crossed into DPRK territory. The Department of State has also received reports of DPRK authorities arbitrarily detaining U.S. citizens without charges and not allowing them to depart the country. In the past 18 months, North Korea detained several U.S. citizens who were part of organized tours. Do not assume that joining a group tour or use of a tour guide will prevent your arrest or detention by North Korean authorities. Efforts by private tour operators to prevent or resolve past detentions of U.S. citizens in the DPRK have not succeeded in gaining their release.posted @ Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 07:53

Why does the same or similar headline appear 4 times in one edition of the newspaper? It's confusing/distracting. Readers want to see the latest article on the subject. Cull out the duplicate, obsolete, and superseded ones.posted @ Tuesday, October 21, 2014 - 07:02
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.

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
