I love Ireland for its natural beauty, its people, its food (some of it), its music, its writers and especially its elections, which are shorter, less costly and designed to engage citizens and boost voter turnout.

2020欧洲外围赛This isn’t the column I had intended on writing this week. I had intended to write something about the impeachment hearings regarding the President of the United States. 

Georgia Power has issued a warning for customers beware of scammers posing as utility company employees.

Bernie Sanders’ campaign recently stabbed Elizabeth Warren in the back. She was the Vermont senator’s comrade in arms. It also threw a pack of lies at Joe Biden, tarring him as corrupt with zero evidence. As former Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin told Politico, Sanders “will play dirty.” The Demo…

2020欧洲外围赛Remember the advice you got as youngsters not to stick a fork or your finger in a wall socket? It looks like there is a new social media equivalent for the digital age. 

2020欧洲外围赛The Georgia First Amendment Foundation’s annual legislative breakfast in Atlanta is always enlightening, always thought provoking but this year it was more than a little bit scary. 

2020欧洲外围赛I must have said it a dozen times since the Democrats’ impeachment miniseries took over our televisions, but I’ll say it again.

The contrast could not have been starker. One picture showed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi smiling as she signed (with numerous pens) two articles of impeachment against President Trump. She passed out the pens like souvenirs to fellow Democrats. They were embossed in gold with her signature an…

2020欧洲外围赛We have had a taste of winter this week and judging by the forecasts, we won’t be served a full plate of cold weather again for some time.

2020欧洲外围赛It needs pointing out that Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All plan bears little resemblance to Medicare. The Vermont senator undoubtedly exploits the word "Medicare" to obscure the radicalness of his single-payer proposal. Medicare, after all, is very popular.

During the American Revolution, Mordecai Sheftall was the highest ranking Jewish officer in the Continental Army, serving as the deputy commissary of issues (supplies) for the Southern Department of the war. 

2020欧洲外围赛In reality, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday is January 15 — he would have turned 91 a week ago today — though as a nation we celebrate it on every third Monday of January. 

It’s nearly impossible to have even a short conversation with a college administrator, politician or chief executive without the words diversity and inclusion dropping from their lips. Diversity and inclusion appear to be the end-all and be-all of their existence. So, I thought I’d begin thi…

Tuesday’s event was supposed to be the big one, the final showdown before actual voting begins. If, like me, you’ve watched every minute of every Democratic debate so far — and here’s wishing we’d all get a life — you know the unfortunate truths:

2020欧洲外围赛You’re excused if you didn’t hear about the latest impeachment “bombshell” that exploded in the media on Wednesday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s strategy of holding on to the two weak articles of impeachment against President Trump was starting to rattle some Democrats, who felt they were losing the political battle. Last Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) told reporters, “If we’re going to do it, sh…

2020欧洲外围赛We folks who call Thomasville and Thomas County home are very proud of how we’ve collectively preserved a lot of our local history for everyone who is interested in learning, and thusly perpetuating it for generations yet to come. 

Throughout this unsettling conflict with Iran, Joe Biden has stood out as a calming Democratic voice, speaking of the stakes and challenges with deep knowledge of foreign policy. Just another reason for activists on the left backing Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren to lose their minds.

2020欧洲外围赛“Find the cost of freedom,” wrote Stephen Stills in 1970 upon visiting a Civil War site. Those who fought and died to defend our freedoms are indeed “buried in the ground” as Stills and company sang.

The muted reaction of leading Democratic politicians to the elimination of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani reinforces my sense of what divides our country and differentiates the two parties.

Prior to Iran’s missile attacks on U.S. bases inside Iraq, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said, “We are not seeking war with Iran, but we are prepared to finish one.” Esper said the U.S. prefers a “diplomatic” solution to the escalation of tensions in the region.

2020欧洲外围赛Believe it or not, 2020 marks 20 years we’ve been meeting here on these pages for our weekly chats. 

George W. Bush and Barack Obama both had Gen. Qassem Soleimani in their gunsights. Neither ordered the trigger pulled because of the enormous risks involved in killing one of Iran’s top leaders. In listing the possible responses to recent Iranian provocations, U.S. military commanders told P…

You can roll up your sleeves and not have to sweat — well ,maybe not much — to help plenty of others.
