From the beginning, I’ve thought the 1st Congressional District will be the one to watch. This disclosure period will be interesting with two of the candidates, Rep. Chapman and Sen. Carter, under the Gold Dome for the session. But after4th quarter’s fundraising totals, you can see who the serious contenders are.
In a crowded field of candidates vying to [...]
I was 4 years old when President Kennedy was assassinated. Our family was living in suburban Washington DC. My father was a hosiery salesman and Mrs. Kennedy wore the brand he sold. So every so often, he would deliver 10 dozen off black stockings (that’s all there were back then) to The White House.
We talked [...]
Over the weekend, civil rights leaders met about the SCOTUS decision that asked the Congress to come up with different criteria for Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) and renderedSection 5 of the VRA moot until the Congress acts on Section 4.
The president has been travelling the country talking about “phony” scandals, this is a phony [...]
In yet another jobs speech this week, President Obama declared victory, claiming that his tax-and-spend policies have “cleared away the rubble” of the recession. He promised the beginning of a “new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth.” Ignoring the sluggish economy, he claimed “we fought our way back.” Millions of unemployed and under-employed Americans would likely disagree.
I had intended for zpolitics to be a Zimmerman Free Zone. That changed Saturday afternoon when I filled in for Mark Arum on WSB Radio. I had a show planned out that was a Saturday afternoon kind of show. Talk about the news of the week and do something a little lighter going into Saturday [...]Zimmerman
Tonight, Warren Lee Hill is scheduled to be executed in Georgia. The usual groups are claiming he shouldn’t be executed because of his mental capabilities.
Let’s take a look at what Warren Lee Hill did. He was convicted to spend life in prison for the murder of his girlfriend in 1986. In 1990, while in prison, [...]
With the Supreme Court effectively ruling in favor of gay marriage, options have narrowed for its opponents. We libertarians praise the ruling, as does your nephew who TIVOs “Glee,” can never quite throw a spiral, and refers to “Top Gun” as “Oh, that volleyball movie.”
Overturning the Defense of Marriage Act comes after last year’s decision [...]
The Obama administration’s announcement it will delay implementation of the employer mandate due to the enormous regulatory burden on businesses is proof positive that the law is a job-killer.
The administration’s excuse for delay was to simplify reporting requirements for small businesses, but employers haven’t been against the mandate solely due to its burdensome reporting requirements. [...]
While our angry and embarrassed U.S. government plays “Where’s Waldo?” trying to capture NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden, the jury is still out on whether he is a hero or traitor.
It is one thing to reveal our government’s domestic secret surveillance program. It is quite another to give our intelligence to enemies around the world.
Loosely defined, [...]
Since at least the mid 2000s, I’ve been predicting the overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Yesterday, portions of DOMA were overturned. Now we have created two classes of people. Married people, same-sex or traditional, who get federal benefits and those who don’t. Many years ago, I was criticized for saying this debate [...]DOMA Prop 8
Georgia is a Right-to-Work state, and that’s something I’m proud of. We’ve taken care of our workers, ensuring equal opportunity, all without forcing them to join and pay for unions they don’t want. Unfortunately, as the digital world is changing, not every state and its employees are as lucky.
It’s recently come to light that union [...]
My son, Spc. Michael Maxfield, a soldier since age 17 and Purple Heart recipient, was on a recovery crew in Afghanistan when he rolled over a roadside bomb. He was blasted into the air, his brain sloshing around in his head as the wrecker was tossed up and crashed down, his body going through contortions [...]Veterans Wounded Warriors
Yesterday, the Feds said they will drop any age objection to the availability of the “Morning After Pill” to any age person. So-called women’s health groups say it “should be available as aspirin.”
A few years ago, my then 16 year old daughter went to the drug store to by her sick mother some cold medicine. [...]
I’m in NYC for a couple of days for a meeting of talk hosts from around the country. On the flight up, I sat next to an Army nurse. As we talked on the flight, the topic of the Atlanta VA and the transitioning of Wounded Warriors back into civilian life came up.
This nurse has [...]
