Blog: Help for our troops

I have emailed Jack Kingston two times now. I feel that I have been pushed to the side or "swept under the carpet.

Structural imbalance of talk radio

Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk-radio pioneer, has been called many nasty things before, but never a "structural imbalance." That's the fancy term a liberal think tank uses to characterize his success - and to dress up its proposal for counteracting that success through new government regulation.

Xenophobia: Fear of 'the others'

A supposed letter to the editor making the rounds of the Internet compares today's immigrants (bad) with the immigrants of yesteryear (good). A good response to that fantasy is a Teddy Roosevelt quote that several readers have sent me:

Eminent domain protection meek

This month marks the second anniversary of the infamous Kelo v.

Editor, Perhaps Liberty County Commissioners Lovette, Stevens, Frasier and Gilliard need to pause and reflect some before they cast any future votes. I'm referring, of course, to their recent votes to open the polls on Sunday.

Gubernatorial candidate talks education

I have asked the two major gubernatorial candidates to talk to Georgia public-school teachers about their respective education platforms. This week, the floor belongs to Jason Carter, the Democratic challenger. Next week, it will be Republican Gov. Nathan Deal's turn.

Situations are as dramatic as you make them

Even 'educational' TV is questionable

Letting a child watch too much TV may be as bad for parents as it is for little ones. In fact, depending on which shows a child is allowed to watch, it may be worse for parents.

Don't vote for SPLOST; property tax hike likely anyway

On Dec. 16, 1773, a group of demonstrators boarded ships in Boston Harbor. They threw chests of tea overboard to protest the British parliament's unfair tax on tea. It's time for the citizens of Midway and Liberty County to borrow a page from Boston's history book.

Over the next three years, as many as 60,000 military members are expected to return to Georgia. Already, 770,000 veterans call Georgia home.
