Enough is enough

William Voegeli wrote a book about the ever-growing welfare state in the United States and throughout the Western world titled "Never Enough." In the tea party, we hear the countervailing cry, "Enough!"

City must exercise fiscal restraint

Hinesville's streets aren't paved in gold. Dollar bills aren't growing on the live oaks that dot the local landscape, so why are the mayor and city council spending money like it's going out of style?

Potted plants will ruin good pontification

This isn't going to please those boys and girls with the dark glasses and hearing aids who are always talking to their lapels, but my column commandos walked right past them the other night to attend the season's first conversation at the Carter Center, otherwise known as Jimmy Carter's out-of-touch-with-reality pontifications.

And if it quacks like a deer

Last night I was sitting at an intersection and a fellow pulled up beside me on a motorcycle wearing a Viking's helmet with huge horns on it. I thought to myself how dangerous it was to dress like that this close to deer season ... wearing horns and riding a motorcycle. My next thought was to let him get way out of range.

Securing safety with new START

Nuclear arms control: What high school student cares, much less has anything to say about this global issue? Some policy issues feel as complicated as – well, rocket science. But that makes it even more important for us to understand them.

Lets give them a warm welcome home

"The Army takes care of its own." It's a truth I've discovered personally in my years of coordinating the 3rd Infantry Division's Adopt-a-Soldier program. There are few situations when a soldier or his family slips through the safety net the military has in place. So in the rare instance when the U.S. Army shyly asks for our help, you can bet it's important.

One live-saving vote

Georgians will be asked to make many important decisions on Nov. 2. Federal, state and local leaders are all asking for support, communities are deciding local issues, and there will be a number of statewide referenda on which to vote.

Madmen theory and Islamic world

Richard Nixon famously had his "madman theory" during the Vietnam War. He wanted the North Vietnamese to believe he was irrational (not such a stretch, as it turned out) and ready to do anything to end the war. Faced with this dangerous lunatic, the North Vietnamese would beg for peace.

The four-way debacle

I was in greater downtown Brunswick the other day and came upon a newly installed four-way stop situation at the corner of 4th Street and Hampton - or as we call it "The Hospital Road." The road you turn on when you have an appointment with one of the numerous medical professionals who have set up camp around the South East Georgia Regional Health Center. There is an "ologist" under every rock.

Tea Party needs to beware of success

Once again, Tea Party activists have shown their clout with candidates winning GOP primaries in both New York and Delaware. It's just the tip of what some hope is a very big iceberg. It may well be.

One in 5 Georgians without health coverage

Nationally, and here in Georgia, the rate of uninsured residents worsened yet again in 2009. More than one in five Georgians lacked health coverage in 2008 and 2009 (20.9 percent of the population), according to the new Census Bureau data released today. This represents an increase from the pre-recession years of 2006-2007, when 19.2 percent of Georgians went without coverage. (The Census Bureau averages two years of survey data in order to improve the reliability of the estimates.)
