We lost the battle not the war but the way Republicans are capitulating one would think we lost the war.
The way Saxby and other Republicans are bowing down is sad to see. We did not elect these people to see them give in to the Democrats or the president. How long will the president and Democrats hold the middle class hostage? The first things Obama wants to cut is Social Security, Medicare, and our military. Why doesn’t he cut Congress pay checks, his pay check, or fire his czars and his wife’s staff?
Why don’t the Republicans hold Obama’s feet to the fire? Are they afraid of him? What does he have on them? Our Republicans need to grow some backbone and stand up for what they were elected to do. Why don’t the Republicans give Obama a deadline about what his plan is and put it in writing. What is his plan for spending cuts, who is he going to tax, what is his plan for tax reform, what is his plan period.
The election is over but we still have four dead Americans in Benghazi and no one will tell us what happened. Who is responsible for their deaths? Who failed to act? How come two weeks later was Obama telling the UN it was all about a movie trailer and not a planned attack? They knew within minutes that this was an organized attack and did nothing. They waited until after the election and now they have swept it under the rug. We need to fire or impeach someone?
If Saxby Chambliss and other Republicans including the speaker are rolling over and accepting everything that Obama wants, it may be we need to think about putting someone else to represent us in Washington. I am sorry Saxby but I was under the impression that you are up there to represent the people who elected you, not play golf and roll over every time Obama wants you too.

One of our own
(Attention Colquitt County Board of Commissioners.)
I am aware the list of applicants for our new administrator has been narrowed to three candidates. In that list is one of our own, Chas Cannon.
In the first three months of 2014, Georgia has lost 35 of its residents to the ravages of fire. These numbers are among the highest in the nation during that time period and reflect the very real dangers that face each of Georgia’s residents when it comes to fire safety. Fire does not discriminate, and can strike at any time and in any type of home.

Hey guys, we aren’t going to win this one!
There must be a fine line between a dream and a nightmare. I think we can say that all nightmares are dreams but not all dreams are nightmares. Both can be stupid. Almost all of them are illogical.
Congratulations, you made school, community proud
If you were not at the 2014 Colquitt County High School Packer Idol competition this past Thursday, you missed a wonderful evening of music by some of the most talented students in our county.
