Fate of state Sen. Don Balfour now in jury's hands December 18, 2013
JV, The state ID may be free, but a certified copy of a Georgia birth certificate costs $25.
When I was a teenager, my dad drove me down to the DMV and presented my birth certificate at that time in order to get me my learner's permit. Later I moved to Georgia and turned in my out-of-state license for a Georgia license. I have now been driving here for more than 25 years. Who did they think I was all these years?
Excellent column! If we don't figure out a way to get the money out of politics, we are always going to have " the best government money can buy."
I agree! Healthy habits should be rewarded.
The question for this daily "post" was whether Michelle Obama yelled at her husband for his unhealthy dietary choice, so it was a question on health.
I don't think Michelle Obama can control her husband's diet, any more than I can control my husband's. It took Obama many years to give up smoking (if, indeed, he has), even though she wanted him to. You are absolutely right that his actions undermine her message. I still think it's a worthy message, though, and worthy of consideration.
Was Nancy Reagan using perceived intellectual and moral superiority to encourage kids not to use drugs, or to say that she knows what's best for them? As for ignoring one's own advice, nobody eats right all the time, but eating fast food on a regular basis is just asking for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc. I say again that healthcare is an ever larger percentage of our GDP and is going to bankrupt our country, and as a matter of personal responsibility, we should attempt to develop wholesome health habits. That doesn't mean we can't "cheat" occasionally.
Every First Lady has had a cause, whether it's Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No!" to highlight drug abuse among young people, or Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" to highlight how unhealthy our eating and exercise habits have become. First Ladies have done this for years. Scientific studies, both clinical and epidemiological, have shown that our horrible eating habits cause preventable diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and even some cancers. In addition, healthcare costs are consuming an ever greater percentage of our GDP. Our bad habits are going to bankrupt the country. It's hard to understand why encouraging healthy habits is considered controversial, silly, or something to sneer at.
This is really good news! These true crime shows have millions of viewers. It would be great if they could solve this case!
JohnGalt: Birth certificate? That's just silly...
