We constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare running out of money? What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.
So schools are now banning "honor students" because it makes the average students feel dumb. America is the only place that enjoys dumbing down people.
Why is it the Department of Defense can process you into the military, train you, and deploy you to a combat zone in six months, but the Department of Veterans Affairs takes over a year to process wounded veterans' disability paperwork? Congress should have their pay and healthcare benefits suspended until our veterans receive the benefits they EARNED in combat!
If media would drop the labels such as "Mexican-American," "African-American," "Irish -American," and just call us ALL Americans, it might help unite us together instead of split us apart.
After every act of terrorism we are told don't judge all Muslims for the acts of a few. Isn't it time we used that logic for the 80 million gun owners here in America.
If a word is derogatory when used by one race then it is derogatory when used by all races. Period.
Heavy dense fog Monday morning and I almost get hit by a grey colored car with no headlights on. She blows her horn and gives me the finger right before she rams the car in front of her also with no lights on. Karma, gotta love it.
Dr. King's dream has come true. His children are being judged by the content of their character.
Marta is broke. Atlanta can't afford to repair the roads or bridges or sewers. The schools are broke, but a billionaire who can afford to do it himself wants to use taxpayer money to build a new stadium that nobody wants or needs. The mayor agrees with him. What is it I don't understand?
It's a very sad day for this country when the politicians would rather cut Veteran's retirement benefits instead of tax credits given to illegal aliens...
An illegal alien says it's illegal for him to be charged with not having a driver license or registered vehicle because it discriminates against illegal aliens. WHAT???
I might not agree with some of the personal religious philosophy of the owners of Chik Fil A, but will say they have been terrific corporate citizens and responsive to the needs of the community. You will not find a better environment for your teenager's after school job, either.
Martin Luther King's children are really getting on everyone's nerves...he died for peace and his children can't have peace among each other.They all need to get a real Job and stop living of his legacy.
When will parents take responsibility for their child's behavior? Stop blaming others when you don't do your job.
I've had progressives tell me that Welfare/EBT, Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing and now free healthcare are all civil rights. See, this is our national cancer...people believing they're owed a free living and never having to work for anything.
Does anyone really care about Kim & Kanye?? CAUSE I DON'T!!!!!
So in the new immigration bill, illegals won't have to pay all their back taxes. But if I, as a citizen, fail to pay my taxes, I could go to jail.
Why do we worry so much about putting murderers to death in a way that isn't painful or cause them any suffering? They certainly didn't give that same consideration to their victims so why should they get off so easily?
Mayor Reed, perhaps you can explain why a white youth cannot walk home from a Braves game IN YOUR OWN CITY without being gunned down in the streets. This is something YOU have control over.
It is clear that the majority of the public does not want the new stadium nor the streetcar. Obviously we have no voice.
If we are broke as a nation, please explain to me why we pay billions of dollars for Corporate Welfare and Charity to other nations when we can't/won't take care of our own helpless children, elderly and disabled?
Just because you are a customer does not give you the right to be abusive and treat people like they are not human.
We have hit a new low when teenagers shoot a jogger just because they are bored.
I personally think Republicans AND Democrats are both too inept and corrupt to run this country. Wow, I wonder which way this vent will get voted.
The 17year old soccer player who sucker punched the referee who later died should face trail as an adult. There is no excuse for this.
