Just sit back and think for a minute of what will happen to this country when Ron Paul actually wins the presidency... It's scary isn't it?
Buffy's story is a bit of a tear-jerker. Having been family to the same man since early puppy-hood, this little guy has now had his life completely turned upside down. Buffy is 16 now - years away from his youth, but he still has little boy charm in his smile. Unfortunate circumstances led the man who cared for him to homelessness and that meant Buffy was homeless as well. They say that home is where ...
By David Boaz Cato Institute Four hundred years ago this month, 105 men and boys disembarked from three ships and established the first permanent English settlement in North America. They built a fort along what they called the James River, in honor of their king. The land was lush and fertile, yet within three years most of the colonists died during what came to be known as "the starving time." Only the establishment of private ...
Down at the old English colony of Jamestown in Virginia, they are spending the summer celebrating what organizers call "America's 400th anniversary."
The headquarters of the 3rd Infantry Division deployed two months ago and already we've made great progress. I am so proud of our soldiers.
Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson broke a cardinal rule for Georgia Republicans. They allowed Sen. Ted Kennedy to smile upon them.
Since transplanting myself from the over-developed and polluted town of Cleveland, Ohio to the forested and marsh-lined county of Liberty, I have begun to change my attitude regarding the environment.
DO YOU EVER WONDER? Why are automobiles geared to go 120 mph when speed limits nationwide are 70? Why is it OK for a business to have barbed wire around the top of their fences, but it's against the law for homeowners? Why did automanufacturers do away with the dimmer switch on the floorboard? What do those large question marks on our historic site signs mean? When will Frank Cochran Drive be completed? Why have ...
Well, don't you feel lighter, Liberty County? I wish it was as easy to "reduce" personally as it is to "reduce" as a community.
France has often, for better or worse, led the way during its history: in state-building, when Louis XIV created the modern French monarchy; in proto-totalitarian politics, with its revolution of 1789; in mass-mobilized warfare, in the wake of the revolution. Now, France is being reduced to a sad object lesson, a warning of the deadening effects of big government economics.
Yet another turn in the long and tortuous road to immigration reform, and still no guarantee Congress is heading in the right direction.
Former President Jimmy Carter recently said the Bush administration was "the worst in history" in international relations. Well, I will give President Carter some credence in knowing about a presidential administration being the worst. We can honestly say his administration was clearly the worst one during the past 100 years.
By Benita M. Dodd Vice president, Georgia Public Policy Foundation There's an extraordinary disconnect among Americans between our wants and our needs; in understanding how the choices we make impact the outcomes we bemoan. The latest example is the perennial astonishment over rising fuel prices, which bleed into every aspect of the economy. As Transportation Secretary Mary Peters warned in her visit to Atlanta this week, gas prices will continue to go up, up and ...
Georgia is the nation's sixth fastest growing state on a percentage basis and the fourth fastest growing on a numeric basis. The Peach State population is spiraling upward at an annual rate of nearly 15 percent per year. Close to 40 counties - mostly in north Georgia - exceed the 15 percent growth rate.
Blogger: Allan McQuown Subject: Schools becoming the new battleground for violence On May 4, I dropped my daughter off at Liberty High and I was pleased to see several armed law officers in the parking lot and walking the campus. I was glad to see them and, of course, this is a response to recent incidents including one student bringing a weapon to school and several threats of violence. However, I had to wonder ...
Editor, I am writing to clarify the Georgia Department of Transportation's policy on safety and turn lanes, specifically as it relates to commercial development such as that pending on U.S. Highway 84 near its interchange with Interstate 95 in Midway.
Before I say this, just know that I am not bragging. I am sure that this is not anything to brag about. But you and I are friends and I always endeavor to be honest with you so you should know the truth.
The federal government is running out of money again, and Congress needs to pass legislation to fund fiscal 2014, which starts Oct. 1. Thus, Congress and the president will soon be debating whether to raise the limit on the nation's credit card.
Though I fall short so often, I have never denied my belief in Jesus Christ or the fact that I am a Christian. Fortunately for me, my wife has been the spiritual leader in our home for much of our marriage.
You may have read that the United States Supreme Court is going to hear a case about whether or not prayer can be uttered in town councils across America. Last year, a federal appeals court ruled that such a nefarious deed violated the First Amendment's ban on an "establishment of religion."
There is a misconception among some in Washington that the success of our poverty-assistance programs should be measured by how much we spend on them and how many people receive benefits.
Whenever we do a program on Keep Liberty Beautiful or an orientation for a new volunteer, someone often says, "I never realized that Keep Liberty Beautiful had this many programs."
On July 29, in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens requested an emergency extension to the deadline for approving rates in the upcoming insurance exchange to be implemented in Georgia.
It's not exactly a secret that new parents get little sleep. I'm OK with that. It comes with the territory. But no one tells expectant moms and dads that their little ones eventually will tease them by occasionally sleeping through the night, sometimes for a week or two at a time, but then will regress back to waking up once or twice - sometimes even three times - per night.
It is of paramount importance that I teach my husband how to be a Southerner, at least a half-decent one, if not one of regal bearing.
