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.

We’re inundated with self-help experts
Several years ago I wrote a column about self-help books. I had been in a large book store and there was a whole section devoted to books that are supposed to help one overcome a wide array of shortcomings. Well since then, it seems the self-help sections of book stores have grown immensely.
Their behavior seems somewhat hypocritical
Our state legislators are at it again.
Senate Bill 98 will prevent abortion coverage under any state or federal healthcare plan in Georgia except for a medical emergency. Apparently there is no exception even for rape or incest.

Where is accountability in regard to vet benefits?
Our legislators have no qualms sending our men and women in uniform into harms way. We who served and those who continue to serve do what is expected in service for our Country, even if it means the giving of our life. Eventually we become Veterans.

The art of orchestrating some conflict
I think I’m becoming too much of a television critic. But it’s fun.
It seems I can hardly watch television anymore without pointing out the flaws of the programming. And then I realize that without those flaws, the show would only last five minutes.

And what are those people smoking?
So this fellow asked me what I thought about the bill that passed the state House to allow a person to carry a gun into a church. I told him that I had never heard a sermon that bad nor a choir that much off key.
