Opinion: What’s good for Amazon is good for the gander

Posted: a minute ago

Amazon this past week eliminated 218 cities from its HQ2 sweepstakes, and Atlanta wasn’t one of them. Instead, Atlanta made the 20-city “short list” of candidates still in the hunt for a $5 billion investment and 50,000 high-paying jobs. Celebration is not only premature but a bit unseemly. There’s a long way to go...
Opinion: Democrats are trying to claim credit for the impending shutdown. Let them
 I still like to think of myself as a young-ish guy, even if I recently removed “30-something conservative” from my blog tag line. (I’m not 40 yet. But I will be soon. Stop asking when.)   But even I’m old enough to remember when refusing to fund the government because you wanted to extract unrelated...

Opinion: Americans are of two minds about Trump, both of them wrong
 This week brought an update on President Donald Trump’s health from the White House physician. Trump is up 3 pounds from his last check-up but his “overall health is excellent,” said Navy doctor Ronny Jackson. He added that, at Trump’s request, he’d administered a cognitive screening test and confirmed,...

Opinion: A year in, Americans are of two minds about Trump, both of them wrong

Opinion: Deal still sees education as Georgia’s biggest challenge
 Nathan Deal has embarked on his final year as governor, so he is undertaking some rituals of the office for the final time. Such was the case this past week when he delivered one last State of the State address to legislators. For Deal, who warns he’s no lame duck but has a modest legislative agenda for this eighth and final year, it...

Opinion: Is an immigration deal close, despite Trump?
 This is the time of year when I have both eyes on the state’s business under the Gold Dome and maybe half an ear attuned to what’s going on in Washington. (It’s a neat trick: Stare straight ahead at the computer screen, think about your ear until it sort of twists and rises up, and ... LOL, you really tried it, didn&rsquo...

Opinion: On presidential visits and long security lines
 I was in the security line Monday night outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium — a.k.a., the site of the Atlanta/Georgia Sports Curse Vol. LXVII — when the frustration began to mount for everyone. I spent a solid hour in the cold and light rain being pushed and pressed toward the metal detectors and Secret Service agents, and I heard about...

Opinion: On presidential visits to ballgames and long security lines
 I was there in the security line Monday night outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium -- a.k.a., the site of the Atlanta/Georgia Sports Curse Vol. LXVII -- when the frustration began to mount, for me and everyone around me.

Opinion: How this session starts will tell us much about how it ends
 Legislative sessions have a particular rhythm. They start slowly, then pick up the pace as more bills are filed and vetted by committees. There’s a rush to the first deadline, Crossover Day. Then a short breather, and an even more furious sprint to the Day 40 finish. At the end there may be suspense. There are sometimes surprises, and...

Opinion: Why the economy could be GOP's saving grace in 2018
 It’s always tempting to look ahead to the next elections, and

             in New Jersey and Virginia, and special elections in Georgia and elsewhere, have our Democratic friends licking their chops about this fall’s midterms. They’re right to be optimistic. Midterm...

Opinion: The electoral map is still growing redder, but not as quickly
 The 2020 census, and the reapportionment of congressional seats that takes place afterward, may seem far off. But control of the state legislatures and governor's offices that redraw the lines is up for grabs this November in many states, including Georgia. With so much on the line, it's not too early to peek at what may happen. All the more...

Opinion: Orrin Hatch to retire; enter Sen. Mitt Romney?
 Seven terms in the U.S. Senate will be all for Utah's Orrin Hatch, who said Tuesday he will not seek re-election this fall. If only he'd made the announcement a couple of weeks ago. Hatch has denied repeated retirement rumors over the past several months, leading the Salt Lake Tribune to

Opinion: Welcome to 2018, which is starting off right
 Remember 
               what I said
             about 2018 needing to be better than 2017? So far, 
               so

Opinion: Hurry up and get here, 2018
 2017 is all but over and, as of this writing, the world has not ended. Given the many dire predictions made this time last year, as Donald Trump was preparing to enter the White House, that’s no mean achievement. Life as we know it — the shared, American consciousness — definitely changed this past year, perhaps forever...

Opinion: Why joy in politics is in short supply

Posted: 27 days ago

Joy to the world. Please. I realize the entire world is not the political one, but in those precincts there is precious little mirth these days. The happy warrior is an endangered species. This joylessness is more a feature of those obsessed with politics than of actual practitioners. Social media and comment threads, marches and public hearings...
