Jul 14, 2014

My dad passed away in 1991. He was 81 years old. He had a full life and I still miss him. One of my friends told me, “I feel like I knew your Dad because you talk about him,” I couldn’t have been paid any higher compliment. Some of the biggest [...]

Kingston, Perdue, Nunn

Jul 7, 2014

A strange thing has happened in Georgia politics. Because of the change in the primary calendar and the very long runoff cycle, many news outlets are not focusing on the race between Republicans Jack Kingston and David Perdue. Instead, they are looking at it as if it’s a three way race between Michelle Nunn, [...]

Affleck as Batman, Hillary Clinton as Wonder Woman

Aug 30, 2013

Leftists have always controlled the media, particularly the movie industry.
With all our problems of joblessness, dropping incomes, slow economic growth, Syria, rising health care costs and over-regulation under President Obama, what is on the minds of They petition the president to denounce the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman. This is the same site [...]

California Dems doing the job Georgia Republicans won’t do

Aug 27, 2013

On illegal immigration, we are constantly told that there are “jobs Americans will not do,”  which, the narrative goes, is why we need to legalize millions of illegal aliens. And to then make them into…Americans. But that amusement is for a different column.
What we don’t hear about is the fact that apparently there are jobs [...]

Federal Health care regulations raises privacy concerns for Georgians

Aug 24, 2013

Last week, along with 12 other state attorneys general, I sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expressing grave concerns that consumers’ private information is left unprotected under the new health insurance exchanges that are set to go into effect this fall.
The letter to Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says privacy protection [...]

Let us do the simple things for Georgia and the nation

Aug 20, 2013

My life experiences led me to discover that many of life’s toughest problems are ultimately solved with the simplest answers and not the easiest answers.  The simplest I’m referring to is usually the most obvious and straightforward solution, but rarely involves the path of least resistance.  Our current American culture has somehow blurred the definitions [...]

On school choice, Damon’s actions speak louder than words

Aug 19, 2013

Matt Damon, the most outspoken celebrity supporter of public schools and teachers unions, is moving to Los Angeles and enrolling his four children in private schools.
Damon told Britain’s The Guardian, which broke the Edward Snowden/NSA story (apparently, American journalism has been outsourced overseas), “Sending our kids in my family to private school was a big, [...]

Tea Party leader goes green for solar

Aug 13, 2013

Some people may have done a double take on July 11 when they saw me and fellow members of the Atlanta Tea Party celebrating next to the Sierra Club as it was announced that Georgia’s largest energy provider will invest in a huge increase in solar power. Why was the Tea Party rallying with groups [...]

House votes against waste

Aug 12, 2013

It is unfortunate that during a time when so many American families are struggling, we have reports of tax dollars being misused and examples of the federal government making life more difficult for hardworking Americans.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and General Services Administration (GSA) are two prime examples of what can happen when too much [...]

Another empire’s ‘bread and circuses’

Aug 10, 2013

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself.”
– John Adams
Like ancient Rome, the great American experiment with democracy is showing signs of demise. Historically, when the productive are outvoted by the parasites, it signals the decline of a country.
The Roman Empire crumbled when politicians pacified citizens with superficial forms of government handouts [...]

Stop the IRS

Aug 7, 2013

Earlier this spring, we learned about the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting of conservative groups. Case after case emerged, and finally the IRS had to admit that they were harassing and intimidating these conservative groups nationwide, and that this internal knowledge made its way all the way up to the White House. The IRS was [...]

Religious freedom isn’t free

Aug 5, 2013

Let Freedom Ring.  We cherish our freedoms in America.  We remember God who gave us our freedoms, and we remember the people who fought to protect them over the years.  One of the most important freedoms we enjoy is religious liberty.  Indeed the first amendment to our Constitution guarantees us the right to live out our [...]

Talk about a “phony” scandal: VRA and the White House

Jul 31, 2013

Over the weekend, civil rights leaders met about the SCOTUS decision that asked the Congress to come up with different criteria for Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) and renderedSection 5 of the VRA moot until the Congress acts on Section 4.
The president has been travelling the country talking about “phony” scandals, this is a phony [...]

Obama pivots back to jobs—again

Jul 27, 2013

In yet another jobs speech this week, President Obama declared victory, claiming that his tax-and-spend policies have “cleared away the rubble” of the recession. He promised the beginning of a “new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth.” Ignoring the sluggish economy, he claimed “we fought our way back.” Millions of unemployed and under-employed Americans would likely disagree.
Though [...]
