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.

How did those lame names happen?
I’ve often wondered what process is used to determine the mascot name for a football team. Is there a committee formed to do this? Is it thrown out to the public in the form of a contest to come up with a moniker? Were two drunks in a bar involved?

In retrospect, tragedy seemingly gains new light
It’s often said that hindsight is 20-20. Many of us have instances in our lives where that thought would have application.
Now comes the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. As you recall, Zimmerman, described by some as a cop wannabe who couldn’t make the grade, killed young Martin. The jury acquitted Zimmerman of homicide charges. Many felt the prosecution was weak.

Tis’ the season when scammers hone their deeds
It might be the season to be jolly, and we all might hope for peace and goodwill, but the fact is this is also the season for scammers.

‘Black Friday’: It’s a subset of our capitalism
Someone asked me what the term “Black Friday” meant. Well my understanding is that it means businesses would like to end the year in the “black” as opposed to being in the “red” financially. So they have a big sale.
