Tea party groups around Georgia are mobilizing to challenge state elected officials they’ve deemed RINOs — Republicans In Name Only. Recruiting is under way to find challengers to 10 to 12 incumbent GOP lawmakers, including House Speaker David Ralston. Recent polling showing 2 in 3 Republican voters agree with the tea party’s anti-tax, limited-government message.
I fear the police state in this country far more than outside threats. I want our government to PROTECT our lives, liberty & private property. Too many Americans have voluntarily surrendered our rights by apathetic inaction or by gutless overreaction to persevered threats promoted by those who would become our totalitarian overlords.

Ready to trade in your car for a bike, or maybe a subway instead? Interested in fewer choices for your home, paying more for housing, and being crammed into a denser neighborhood? You can have all this and more if radical environmentalists and “smart growth” advocates have their way and local, state, and the federal government impose the policies set forth in the United Nations’ Agenda 21.

The House is poised to pass a fundamental reform that would transform the country’s regulatory system and restore the basic constitutional principle that Congress is responsible for writing the laws in this country.

Having spent three quarters of my adult life working in restaurants, I can tell you that I find the accusations against Herman Cain difficult to believe. Not that sexual harassment doesn’t occur in the restaurant industry, because it does. Rather, because the industry has no shortage of itinerant and attractive young women who would be more than happy to indulge Mr. Cain in whatever peccadilloes he might have. If Mr. Cain were prone to using his position to coerce women into sexual favors, which is exactly what Ms. Bialek is accusing him of, I cannot imagine that there would not be women coming out of the woodwork with stories of his antics. Frankly, he wouldn’t have even needed to use coercion. For a man of power and influence seeking to find willing partners, the restaurant industry would be the equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel.

The White House Cyber Security Adviser Howard Schmidt and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke have recently announced a proposal for mandatory virtual ID cards for Internet users, called the “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace.”
Two additional agencies had been in the running for the proposal, in addition to White House Cyber Security, all willing to prepare a comprehensive strategy meant to improve safety in cyberspace. One was the National Security Agency and the other was Department of Homeland Security.
