It’s Steele who ends up being divisive

You will recall how Peachtree City Mayor Don Haddix was chastised as our proposed representative to Regional Transportation Roundtable (RTR), a group mandated by House Bill 277 for structuring a region-wide sale tax referendum for transportation.

Haddix simply suggested that we look into joining the Three River Region to the south instead of remaining in the ARC. Afterward, Haddix received a stinging reprisal, something akin to a smear campaign, saying he had tarnished our county’s image in our region with his talk. However, nothing could have been further from the truth. Read More»

Tax rates have no effect on job creation

Raising top tax rates for high income individuals kills jobs – right? At least that’s what I keep hearing from politicians and pundits.

Here is the argument: Most small business income taxes are paid by the business owners (because these businesses are typically “flow through” entities like S-corporations, partnerships, etc.). Many of these business owners have high incomes. If you tax these people more, their businesses will have less money to hire people. This is part of the reason we just increased the federal debt by $544 billion to extend the Bush tax cuts for two years. Read More»

So-called conservatives now are playthings of the rich who benefit most but contribute least

Dr. Mark Hendrickson’s article in last week’s Citizen is, I believe, representative of present day conservative intellectualism and its selective choices. The difficulty with intellectually selective choices in the end are their wrongheaded conclusions.

Example: WWI taught French military intellectuals that war favored a strong defense. They convinced the French people and political establishment to spend inordinate sums building an “impregnable” line. Read More»

Native Americans have original property rights

Re: “Honoring Bill Of Rights Day,” by Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson’s article in the Dec. 15 issue of The Citizen.

Dr. Hendrickson writes: “We poorly understand the elementary concept of rights ... The Declaration Of Independence specifies two essential points we need to understand about our rights: 1) They are God-given; 2) they are inalienable ... nobody has a right to anyone else’s property.”

Here we go again, assuming God has always been on our side. Neither God nor Jesus is mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. Nor are they mentioned in the Bill of Rights. Read More»

Earlier this year, Will Garner, 9, a student at Braelinn Elementary School with cerebral palsy, had to undergo major hip and foot reconstruction surgery. The recovery was long, nearly six months, and painful. Will’s physical therapists needed to set goals for him, both short ones to get him through each day’s therapy sessions, and a long one to work towards. The long term goal would show Will, and his family, just how far he had come in a short period of time. On Nov. 6, Will would walk the Strong Legs Run in Atlanta, a 2K race, in his walker.
