Daddy doesn't live here anymore: How absentee fathers are affecting our kids

That means they put the emotional and psychological needs of their children first when making any decisions regarding divorce and parenting. This puts both mothers and fathers on the same side when it comes to their children — as guardians, protectors and parents — not adversaries.

Isakson backs measure to deny fed jobs to tax debtors

WASHINGTON, D.C.-U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., has co-sponsored legislation that would terminate federal employees and prohibit the hiring of individuals who have seriously delinquent tax debt.
The Internal Revenue Service reported in 2009 that nearly 100,000 civilian federal employees were delinquent on their federal income taxes, owing over $1 billion in unpaid federal income taxes.
"America's taxpayers deserve to know that those individuals working within the federal government must abide by the same rules as everyone else," Isakson said. "Especially at a time when Democrats in Congress are discussing the possibility of raising taxes on ...

Aliens in the children’s church

The popular children's song says,
"Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow
Black and white.
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world."
In recent years, the color "brown" has been added to the song, so that many churches sing it this way,
"Red, brown, yellow
Black and white.
They are precious in His sight..."
But at my church, we had one kid who was ready to draw the line at adding colors.
His Sunday School teacher was talking about how Jesus loves all the children ...

Isakson pushes to block easier path to unionization

WASHINGTON, D.C.-U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today led the fight on the Senate floor to stop the National Mediation Board from overturning 75 years of precedent to make it easier for airline and railway employees to unionize. The motion to proceed to his "disapproval resolution" failed by a vote of 43-56. Three Democrats joined with all Republican senators in supporting the resolution.
"The recognition of a union under the Railway Labor Act is essentially permanent and irrevocable, and now a minority can organize the entire bargaining unit," Isakson said. "This administration simply refuses to obey the will ...

Amendments on the ballot

Our state and national constitutions are the foundations upon which our government was established. While the Constitution is a blueprint for how the government is organized, it also defines and protects the rights and liberties of individuals. That's why the process to change the Constitution was made to be so difficult. Proposed changes must pass both the House and Senate by at least a two-thirds vote. The amendments then go to the people who vote to approve or reject the changes.
