The Republican party, many say, is at a crossroads — pundits warn ground zero lies between the establishment Republicans and the tea party. The left salivates at the perceived fissure, hoping to divide conservatives.
When the calendar flips to 2014, it will mark the third anniversary of the only New Year's resolution I've ever kept. My not-so-flat abdominal muscles and rising cholesterol are testaments to this truth.
Before the City Council stands a proposal that homosexuals and their sympathizers insist is simply about equal pay for equal work. Taxpayers should be glad to award spousal benefits to employee's gay partners; doing so will improve the quality of the work force and be fair to gays, whom otherwise are disallowed from receiving benefits as might husband and wife.
If you walked up to anyone on the street in Chattanooga 20 years ago and told them that, within a couple decades, this city would be one of the most cosmopolitan places in the Southeast, that person would have probably laughed at you. But when taking inventory of today’s demographic landscape, it becomes apparent that we live in a very diverse and culturally nuanced city, especially when compared to most of our regional peers.
What's any church to do, not just Ridgedale Church of Christ, when what has been wrong for 2,000 years is — backed by like-minded liberal judges — judged to be right.
Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, reverted to playground rules last week when he declared that two television networks — preparing what are likely to be fawning biopics about presumed 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton — would not be involved in hosting GOP presidential primary debates.
Last week, the Hamilton County Commission approved a resolution to open a $550,000 health clinic for county employees.
One of Andy Berke’s first orders of business after he was sworn in as Chattanooga mayor was to plead with the City Council to allow him to turn in the city’s proposed 2013-14 fiscal year budget up to three months late. Berke reasoned that because of the massive overhauls he planned for city government, the delay in presenting the budget was necessary — and it would be worth the wait.
In President Obama’s speech at Chattanooga’s Amazon distribution center on Tuesday, he laid out a series of steps that he believes will help create jobs and revive the U.S. economy. Realistically, the overwhelming majority of his ideas were illogical schemes to increase government spending and allow government to hand-select winners and losers in the marketplace.
Catoosa County Commissioners will meet today to consider a property tax hike of 1.519 mills to pay for an irresponsible budget which proposes to spend $2.2 million more than the county can afford.
As part of his latest pivot to the economy, President Obama visited Chattanooga to … well, I’m not sure what he hoped to accomplish. Perhaps he wanted to demonstrate that he cared about the economy. Maybe he wanted to divert attention from the various scandals plaguing his Administration.
President Obama, Welcome to Chattanooga, one of hundreds of cities throughout this great nation struggling to succeed in spite of your foolish policies that limit job creation, stifle economic growth and suffocate the entrepreneurial spirit.
The President should pick up an economics textbook during his visit to Amazon in Chattanooga.
President Obama arrives in Chattanooga today. With Air Force One and an army of staff and Secret Service, his presence will be impressive. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of his record on jobs, economic development, or anything of importance to working Americans right now.
For several decades now, Democrats have been the political party of choice for the overwhelming majority of black Americans.
