    House Bill 4681 continues a long, sad history of peacemaking attemptsBy Congressman Jim Marshall (D-GA) [Barf Alert]The tangled politics of Middle Eastern peacemaking has a rich history of unintended consequences. Nearly a century ago, a perceptive British officer familiar with Palestine offered this bit of irony about the treaties ending World War I: "After the 'war to end war' they seem to have been pretty successful in Paris at making a 'peace to end peace." And now, in support of Israel, U.S. House members passed a bill that Israel's most senior military leader believes will only make matters worse -...
  • Three teens arrested in slaying of Marshall couple

    For a week, the killings of Richard “R.D.” and Jessie M. “Tiny” Shepard of Marshall have been described using words such as “violent,” “brutal” and “heinous.” But a probable cause statement filed in Saline County Associate Circuit Court over the weekend in conjunction with the arrests of three suspects takes the shocking nature of the crime to a new level - alleging the murders were planned in advance by a 16-year-old juvenile in cooperation with the two suspects named over the weekend, Spencer Tromont Anderson, 18, and Lyndale Devor Henderson, 17; that the trio, all from Marshall, planned who would...
  • Why We Can’t Deter Iran (because we aren’t)

    "The Iranian nuclear program crisis is currently presenting the greatest challenge to the national security strategy of the Bush Administration. Strategists, diplomats and policy makers are all hard at work trying to craft a course of action and an international coalition that will dissuade and/or prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons... So absent military action and the West’s acquiescence to a nuclear armed Iran, can Iran be deterred from proliferating nuclear weapons and associated technology? Can we be assured they won’t pass one to a proxy? The answer is no, at least as current US strategies are crafted..."

    Jim Marshall and Cynthia McKinney joined to vote against The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006(Warner Robins, GA) – Jim Marshall and Cynthia McKinney joined today to vote against H.R. 4681 - The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006. The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 361 to 37. The Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act bans U.S. assistance to the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority, denies visas to its leaders and cuts off diplomatic contact with Hamas, which the U.S. has branded a terrorist organization. “I would question why anyone would vote against this bi-partisan stand against terrorism. Jim Marshall...

    The Thin Skinned CongressmanBy E. Goldstein(North Carolina) – It seems that Georgia Congressman Jim Marshall is a little peeved at me for publishing an excerpt from an editorial he wrote for the Atlanta Journal Constitution. When Robert Novak picked up on his quote he correctly reported that Marshall supports investigating the President at some time in the future. Novak made the mistake of reporting that Marshall had issued a statement to that effect, he had not. Marshall had just included the comments in a November editorial which can be read on his own congressional website. In his editorial Marshall wrote,...

    Robert Novak Political ReportGeorgia-3/8: This seat, re-numbered after the mid-decade redistricting of last year, is now in greater peril for Democrats than before. Rep. Jim Marshall (D) is tempting fate with his announcement that he favors investigations of the Bush Administration. Although few voters anywhere are big fans of Bush nowadays, they will not welcome this, and it will become campaign ammo for his opponent, former Rep. Mac Collins (R), who will try to link him to the growing impeachment movement on the left. Leaning Democratic Retention.

    Jim Marshall in his own words on what he will do if the Democrats win a majority in the 2006 elections:From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:"There is no question, however, that our presence in Iraq fuels the insurgency. For that reason, we should expect that Iraq's leadership will direct that we modify our operations or withdraw -- just as soon as Iraqis have the institutional capacity to internally secure their country. Americans simply haven't the perspective to make that call. Putting off for now the legitimate issues raised by Pelosi is frustrating at best, particularly for those who have consistently questioned...

    Congressman Collins Out Raises Opponent… AGAIN!Fundraising totals show Collins with momentum in GA 8th district race.Warner Robins, GA – Congressman Mac Collins (Ret. R-GA), has once again out raised Democrat Jim Marshall for a second consecutive quarter in what political analysts are calling the most watched and competitive congressional race in the nation. Congressman Collins raised $259,544.60 in campaign funds compared to his Democratic challenger Rep. Jim Marshall who raised 21% less than Collins with $201,829.91. “It is humbling and exciting to get support from so many people that want effective representation in Washington.

    Rep. Jim Marshall votes lockstep with liberals on the Death Tax(Warner Robins, GA) Congressman Mac Collins (Ret. R-GA) has reiterated his call for the permanent repeal of the Death Tax. Collins voted for the repeal of this oppressive tax multiple times during his 12 years as a member of the United States House of Representatives. Collins opponent Democrat Jim Marshall, who has voted three times against repealing the Death Tax, has demonstrated his true partisan nature by voting with the Democrats in Congress rather then the people he represents. Marshall voted in lockstep with his party leader Nancy Pelosi on...

    GA 8: Marshall, Collins Gear Up for Fight on Unfamiliar Turf Democratic Rep. Jim Marshall easily won a second term in 2004, trouncing the Republican who had nearly beaten him two years earlier. But Marshall is expected to face a much tougher contest this year. Marshall’s near-certain Republican opponent is former Republican Rep. Mac Collins (1993-2005), who is looking to rejoin Congress after he surrendered his House seat in 2004 to pursue a Senate campaign that failed in the GOP primary. Collins is expected to wage a more competitive campaign against Marshall than 2004 nominee Calder Clay, who lost by...

    WASHINGTON -- Could Episcopalians soon be celebrating the Feast of St. Thurgood?The Episcopal Diocese of Washington is to consider a resolution this Friday recommending that the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall be considered a saint. A press release from the diocese said: "If the resolution passes, and is approved by consecutive meetings of the Church's national convention, Episcopal churches will have the opportunity to celebrate May 17 as Marshall's feast day." On that date in 1954, Marshall, who was later to become the first black Supreme Court justice, won the Brown v. Board of Education school desegregation case. He...

    I am happy to announce that as of January 1, 2006, I will be assuming the position of Communication Director for former Georgia Congressman Mac Collins. Congressman Collins has declared his candidacy in Georgia’s New 8th District and will be running against Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall. This will mean that I will be significantly reducing the numbers of columns that I will be writing. On occasion I will still, when time permits, write opinion pieces for the foreign press; however, at this time I feel that my primary responsibility as a United States citizen is to work for change at...

    A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing By William John Hagan Houston Home Journal 10/29/2005 I am perpetually astounded by the Southern Democrats that we send to Washington who paint themselves as conservatives while stabbing their hapless constituents in the back upon arrival. These wolves in sheep’s clothing are more then happy to support their constituents on visible issues such as the War on Terror and abortion. Yet, when voters aren’t looking, they are out there casting ballots like drunken Yankee liberals at a DNC rally. Houston County hasn’t had to worry much about this type of louse thanks to the exceptional...

    Residents eye proposal for new highway project Dozens of area residents examined maps of proposed routes and discussed the implications of the proposed I-69 Trans-Texas Corridor at an open house Wednesday in Calallen. Still in its preliminary stages, the proposed highway will stretch from Mexico to Canada. In Texas, it generally will follow U.S. Highway 59 from Texarkana to Victoria. From there it will split and go to both Laredo and the Rio Grande Valley, roughly following U.S. Highways 59 and 77. The project is undergoing an environmental impact study, said Doug Booher, TXDOT environmental manager. Fred Wollmann, who lives...

    Here's the story:I came into what appears to be a pretty good deal. It is a Marshall speaker cabinet holding four 12" speakers. It is a top (slanted) cabinet. The tag on the front lists it as a JCM800 Lead Series. The tolex has a few tears and there is a small tear in the speaker grille. It looks like it has seen some life on the road but it is solid.I purchased this cabinet for $200. I do not currently possess a head with which to play it through. Not out here in Florida anyways.Now here is where I...
