    28 Days To Election Day: Georgia

    It is hard to believe that at the beginning of this presidential campaign Obama thought Georgia was in play. At its heart, outside the major metropolitan areas, this is a conservative state. Perhaps, the relatively close loss (about 6 points) in 2012 gave the Obama team a false sense of hope. In 2012, Obama won the Atlanta and Savannah areas and a swath of real | Read More »

    But in Georgia…voters should weigh Barrow against his Democratic Party

    In a recent issue of Atlanta Times News, Mike DeVine admonished DeKalb County voters to send only Republicans to represent them in Washington, D.C. given the desperate need to repeal Obamacare and pass economic growth-friendly legislation so that a real recovery can commence across the Fruited Plain, including in the Peach State. But given the circumstance in portions of Georgia south of DeKalb, this Sandlapper thinks an | Read More »

    D.C. Democrats are no friend of the poor and middle class

    On primary day last month, DeKalb County, Georgia rejected T-Splost and founded a new city in her midst but the Great Recession/most anemic “Recovery” since the Great Depression continues and no amount of new cities, transportation plan Bs, nor Democrats or Republicans in the State Legislature, can fix it. Why? Because Georgia (nor any other state without oil beneath their feet) can’t fix what Washington, D.C. | Read More »

    Martha Zoller: Let’s Get Her To Congress

    Georgia’s 9th Congressional District runoff presents the two faces of the Republican Party and asks voters to choose.On one hand is Doug Collins. Collins would fit right in with the Congressional Republicans who raised the debt ceiling on the promise of spending cuts and then weaseled out of the cuts. He’d fit right in with a GOP that gives lip to repealing Obamacare, but is | Read More »

    Obama executive order expedites dredging of Charleston and other eastern ports

    So, why not expedite Keystone Pipeline and stop closing coal power plants? Georgians, South Carolinians and their respective Republican governors got early Christmas presents from an unlikely Democratic Party source last week when President Barack Obama agreed to waive further application of federal environmental rules in order to expedite the dredging of several U.S. ports, including those at Savannah and Charleston, S.C. The dredging is needed so | Read More »

    Arrogance

    Voters in Georgia do not trust the political establishment in Georgia right now. What compounds this is that I get the sense much of the political establishment in Georgia holds the citizens in contempt. They just won’t do as they are told.The T-SPLOST fell victim to this conundrum. The Georgia Legislature, in the past four years, has decided that instead of voting to cut spending | Read More »

    Would a new City of Brookhaven (Ga.) welcome a new City of Mike?

    Where does this New City movement stop? With a new City of Mike, when every person is their own munici-personality divorced from DeKalb County? No taxation without representation Such was the battle cry of colonists resentful of a distant and arbitrary King and Parliament unresponsive to their happiness pursuits. The shot heard round the world at Lexington and Concord launched an American revolution in self | Read More »

    The Disturbing Trends Series- Part 4 : Caring More About Your Mastercard Transaction and Less About Voter ID

    Of all the issues that really disturb me, it is the opposition to voter ID laws by liberals, Democrats, the Holder Justice Department and civil rights groups. While we theoretically require someone to present ID in order to obtain money on a credit card or a host of other transactions concededly less important than voting, the blanket opposition to these laws confounds the bounds of | Read More »
