The integrity of writing: Plagiarism is stealing, period

There is something to be said about the written word and the weight it carries. In academia, there are strict rules against cheating - on homework assignments, quizzes and tests. However, for the countless English classes required for my degree, the syllabus for every class, in every semester, was guaranteed to have it note bolded about plagiarism - Don't do it! - as there are great consequences for essentially stealing someone else's words and writing and thereby misrepresenting them as your own original work.

Put away childish things

It was front page news last summer when Chick-fil-A restaurants across America became the flashpoint for one of our nation's most divisive issues. Following statements by the restaurant chain's President, Dan Cathy, opposing same sex marriage, gay rights groups organized a nationwide boycott. To counter, conservatives opposed to same-sex marriage flooded the nearest Chick-fil-A to make a statement. It got ugly.

Be weary of official lies

Let's expose presidential prevarication. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama warned that Social Security checks will be delayed if Congress fails to increase the government's borrowing authority by raising the debt ceiling. However, there's an issue with this warning. According to the 2012 Social Security trustees report, assets in Social Security's trust funds totaled $2.7 trillion, and Social Security expenditures totaled $773 billion. Therefore, regardless of what Congress does about the debt limit, Social Security recipients are guaranteed their checks.

A local view from the Georgia House

During the second week of the legislative session, the House began moving a bit faster as the first few bills came out of the committee system. We voted on three measures on the House floor, the most important of which by far was SB 24, the "Hospital Medicaid Financing Program Act," also known derisively as the "bed tax." This tax, which was first passed three years ago, will reach the end of its authorization in July. It is a levy hospitals must pay as a percentage of revenue. The proceeds are then used, in combination with federal matching funds, to ...

Please “Teach Your Children Well”

I titled this column after Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's famous song because it properly reflects the story I'll tell, and because I'm fairly certain I'm not the only one on the planet who has realized the truth about home schooling.
