Sanders sails through debate

For those who waited for presumed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to implode at the first debate, the wait was in vain. Polished, poised and professional, she was well-rehearsed and stayed on point, while managing to be "likable enough," as then-Sen. Barack Obama labeled her in a 2008 debate.

The great white hope

This past week we returned to the 1980s. A group of elderly rich white liberals stood on a stage in Las Vegas, Nevada, and told the nation they intended to tax more, give more free stuff and surrender our national security. They disagreed on very little issues of substance, largely just racing to outdo each other's promises of more free stuff.

Matter of trust

If you have ever worked in a place where you don't trust your co-workers, you understand how that can warp your thinking and therefore your actions. You begin to doubt everything you are told, you constantly look over your shoulder and behind your back in an attempt to find out what's really going on. You become paranoid, uncertain and unsure of reality. You spend more time and energy trying to discern the truth than working to reach a collective goal.

Newton County children should prepare for new bioscience jobs

The ribbon cutting of the Governor's new $14 million Bioscience Training Center and the College and Career Academy in Newton County can hardly be more connected. Baxalta, the new, billion dollar super-biotechnical facility that will employ over 1,600 people with great, high-paying jobs, is smack dab in Newton County. Someone's children are going to get those $60,000-plus jobs. Will they be our kids, or someone else's?

People make the difference

Several recent events might lead average Americans to throw up their hands in regards to politics, and possibly want to shut down Washington themselves. Take, for instance, last week's resignation by Speaker John Boehner, the ongoing political reality show of the Republican presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton's never-ending email questions and CNN's announcement that it would include Vice President Joe Biden for the first Democratic presidential candidates' debate though he has not even announced.

High school fishing clubs growing in Georgia

Mark Gintert might just have the best job in America. An avid outdoorsman and a successful businessman, Gintert is the national youth director of The Bass Federation, which means he gets to work with young people across the land to introduce them to the joys of fishing through high school fishing clubs.

Liberal reasoning: idiotic or dishonest?

Many people argue that liberals, socialists and progressives do not understand basic economics. I am not totally convinced about that.

Reliability and engineering

When I was growing up, my mother ran carpool in our family's red 1969 Volkswagen Beetle. As the youngest, at age 5, I rode in the "back-back," the small space behind the second seat that was intended not for people, but for packages or groceries. I shared this sliver of room with my neighbor, Bobby, who was a year older. The front seat was reserved for older siblings - Bobby's brother Andy, whose French horn was stashed in the front trunk. I can't remember where my sister Kathy put her trombone. But somehow, my mother fit in five ...

The long, yet refreshing, debate

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.

Come on, Joe, make everyone happy and run for president

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.

‘Religious freedom’ and its unintended consequences

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.
