It was one of those pleasant September afternoons when you can feel the heat of summer giving way as the seasons change.
It was a long debate. "The Sound of Music" with Julie Andrews clocked in at three hours. The CNN debate in Simi Valley, California, ran longer than that. It became an endurance contest between a lot of politicians used to East Coast time. By the time they were done, it was after 11 p.m.
While millions of people were expected to watch the second Republican debate this week on CNN, the first Democratic debate will not be held until next month on Oct. 13. With only two top-tier candidates on the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, the potential entrance of Vice President Joe Biden is on everyone's mind - on both sides of the aisle.
Dear City of Covington Residents,
If you've been watching TV, you surely have seen the controversy in Kentucky where a court clerk has been in and out of jail for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses on the grounds that it violates her religious beliefs.
On the Economic Development Committee, we talk a lot about attracting good jobs to Georgia. We also hear a lot of reports about where the jobs actually are. Here is a brief overview of the national picture.
Rep. Allen Peake (R-Macon) is a politician who's had a lot of things going his way.
Academics and public intellectuals, who should know better, attempt to explain the highly visible and publicized pathology witnessed in cities such as Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Ferguson and others as a legacy of slavery. The argument is made that the problems encountered by many black Americans are rooted in white racism, greed and income inequality. They are able to get away with these untruths because most people believe that what is seen today has always been. A bit of history would belie such a vision.
If you believe your emails, texts, Facebook postings and Internet activity are secure, then you live in Never Never Land, a world where boys never grow up and fairies fly through the air. Should commercial Internet transactions be secure, as they promise to be when you sign up? Yes. But "should be" does not security make.
There are millions of people who primarily receive their news and information through items that are posted on the internet or sent to them via email or text message.
In New York and Washington, spotting Hillary Clinton staffers is easy. Just look for dogs who prefer to sniff people's noses instead of other dogs' butts. Those people will be Clinton's staffers. Based on a reading of the various emails released so far from her private email server, Clinton surrounded herself with some of the most professional brown-nosers outside of Hollywood. Clinton could do no wrong.
Many public primary and secondary schools are dangerous places. The Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics and the Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics show that in 2012, there were about 749,200 violent assaults on students. In the 2011-12 academic year, there were a record 209,800 primary- and secondary-school teachers who reported being physically attacked by a student. Nationally, an average of 1,175 teachers and staff were physically attacked, including being knocked out, each day of that school year. In Baltimore, each school day in 2010, an average of four teachers and staff ...
Another school year is underway in our state, which means that it's time to start complaining about the Georgia High School Association (GHSA).
War, real war, is the end result of botched politics. War is a dirty blood-stained business with the goal of defeating an enemy whose viewpoints or religion or territorial greed clashes with an opposing philosophy. Yet in today's society, the word 'War' is exploited to describe a plethora of societal issues better served by common sense instead of radicalization. A few examples.
Here's my taxi question. If a person is law-abiding, has a driver's license, has a car or van that has passed safety inspection, and has adequate liability insurance, is there any consumer-oriented reason he should not be able to become a taxicab owner/operator? Put another way: If you wish to hire the services of such a person, what right does a third party have to prevent that exchange?
Pollster Frank Luntz conducted a 29-person focus group of Trump supporters this past Monday. At one point, while talking to journalists who were watching the group through a one-way mirror, Luntz said, "I want to put the Republican leadership behind this mirror and let them see. They need to wake up. They don't realize how the grassroots have abandoned them. Donald Trump is punishment to a Republican elite that wasn't listening to their grassroots."
