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.

Tribute to my dad
Growing up in South Georgia every little girl thinks of their daddy as their prince; I am no different. And I believe his years of sacrifice, dedication and unconditional love for me is a story worth telling.

Oh joy! The Turtle Man will return
Great news! The Turtle Man is coming back for another season on television!
And yes, I’m being a little facetious here. It’s a ridiculous show, but apparently it’s entertainment for some people.
The kind of stuff that happens in dictatorships
Distrust of government secrecy has been elevated to an exceptional level with the disclosure the Justice Department covertly examined two months of Associated Press phone records to determine who leaked details to the AP about a foiled terrorist plot.

And would you like fries with that?
Most of us have seen the Chick-fil-A signs that urge us to “eat more chicken.” So would you ever expect to see one that says, “eat more crickets?”
