Kathleen Parker: Sunshine State clash — Rubio rolls, Bush wilts

Charles Krauthammer: GOP should skip investigations, win the election

At a certain point, you have to realize you can't hit a fastball. House Republicans don't quite get that they are hopeless at oversight hearings. They keep losing - and now the chairman of the House Oversight Committee has just introduced articles of impeachment against IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

Dick Yarbrough: A newcomer’s guide to Bulldogs vs. Gators

If you have just arrived in our fair state from some alien environment like the planet Krutopia or maybe Vermont, I need to explain to you a cataclysmic event taking place this afternoon in the city of Jacksonville, Fla., which is a suburb of greater metropolitan Brunswick, Ga., much like Vermont is a suburb of Canada.

Letter: Will it take a disaster to unite us as a nation?

The older I get, the more I'm coming to the sad realization that our country doesn't really want to change. The voting numbers are polarized. It's almost like we have developed a stalemate in the decision-making process. The only thing that each side can agree on is that the other side is just one small step from the psych ward.

Letter: Nasty column attacking Clinton makes political divide worse

The Christine Flowers opinion piece written about Hillary Clinton and printed in Monday's paper was over-the-top crude and nasty. No wonder we have such a political divide in this country, and no wonder Mrs. Clinton considers Republicans her enemy.

Jonah Goldberg: Research makes another case for the traditional family

It's been a good month for champions of the traditional family, but don't expect the family wars to be ending any time soon.

Letter: Nothing illustrates our nation’s divide like Arlington Cemetery

In the middle of your editorial of Sept. 27, titled, "A nation of 'us vs. them,'" you ask, "Where are the leaders willing to put national and world interests ahead of political expediency with long-term solutions rather than short-term gain? Sadly, most of them lie in Arlington National Cemetery or other burial grounds under monuments that bear testimony to the ideas they left behind."

Letter: GOP tax plan would harm state’s poor, working class

The Republicans in the Georgia General Assembly are again reminding us what their real priorities are by pushing for a restructure of the tax code next year. Their plan to shift the tax burden from income taxes to sales taxes, and to also lower the corporate tax rate will have a disproportionately negative impact on poor and working class Georgians.

Tom Crawford: Transparency for tax breaks is heartburn for politicians

The phrase "GASB 77" is not just a random collection of letters and numbers. It is an accounting regulation that applies to state and local governments and could potentially cause massive headaches for elected officials.

Editorial: Candidates are driven by polls, not ideas

It's more than three months before anyone will cast a vote in the Iowa caucuses, and another month beyond that when Georgians will weigh in on who should be the nation's 45th president. Yet the horse race is churning at full tilt with lively contests in both parties - at least in the theoretical, fantasy league version played out in the polls.

Jonah Goldberg: Clinton’s enabler-in-chief at root of email issue

It's an ancient story: An innocent idealist sets out to change the world and in the process becomes what he hates most. "He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster," Friedrich Nietzsche advised.
