Pedestrian crossing lights mostly a waste

In these trying times, it’s easy to see how wasteful our federal government can be, and what poor stewards they are of our money. Unfortunately it’s not only the federal government that’s out of control, but our local government and leaders are as well.

Last month a set of pedestrian crossing lights were installed on the corner of Kenwood Road and Ga. Highway 314. The project lasted all month. Read More»

Solve 1 eco-problem, create bigger mess

Madness, it’s all madness. We are being inundated with all sorts of advertisements regarding another of the global warming hoax problems. All of the products we are developing now to solve the nonexistent global warming problem cause other kinds of problems. Read More»

Get ready for constitutional throwdown on healthcare legislation

As Congress works behind closed doors to merge the House and Senate healthcare bills, lawyers and attorneys general across the country are gearing up for a constitutional throw-down. At the center of the healthcare debate are two issues, the individual mandate and the Senate sweetheart deals.

The first issue up that the Supreme Court will most likely be asked to rule on is whether the Commerce clause gives Congress the authority to force an individual to purchase health insurance. Read More»

Message of SPLOST defeat: No more taxes

I take exception with some of [reporter John] Munford’s words in the headline article of today’s Citizen. Mr. Munford wrote that citizens “shot down” a special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) “that would have helped ease budget concerns.” Read More»

Obama sparks crisis of American identity

Of all the odd things Barack Obama has said and done in his short tenure as President, there is one bold statement that so clearly demonstrates his fundamental lack of understanding of America, its people and its history that it begs scrutiny.

When Barack Hussein Obama said, “America is not a Christian nation,” he couldn’t have been talking about the giving nature of Americans, since an important part of the defining essence of our people is their willingness to open their hearts and wallets to others. Read More»

Cap and trade and Christmases past

One facet of American culture that so many of us enjoy is the reminiscing of past Christmases and the holiday traditions of former generations. In the wake of the global warming frenzy and the sought after totalitarian regulation that liberals are demanding from Washington to flush out any behavior deemed environmentally unfriendly, I began to envision the questions I will get from my grandchildren decades from now around the Christmas holiday. It will probably go something like this:

“Tell us again how Christmas used to be, Grandpa.” Read More»

America is starving for moral leadership as Greatest Depression looms

Having studied both sides of the political spectrum since our President’s inauguration, I must admit that each possesses insight as well as outright stupidity.

But for this purpose of this muse, let’s project ourselves out some two and one-half years to the summer of 2012 while presupposing that our federal government maintains its elitist character. Read More»

High crimes, treason: Constitution under attack by its sworn protecters

It is said that history repeats itself, and it often does so because good men stand by idly as if bound and gagged or as if spectators to a sport they have no control over.

We might ask ourselves why an affluent people persist in the belief that their obligations of good citizenship end at the ballot box. We believe in our elected representatives. We believe they have our best interests at heart. So we grow fat, complacent and apathetic while fiddling our way down the path to national ruin. Read More»

Gilmer’s solutions ‘common sense’

Having just finished reading Bill Gilmer’s letter (The Citizen, Dec. 16, 2009), I feel a sense of rescue is near. I can hear the bugler calling as the cavalry is approaching to save us.

I agree whole-heartedly, my friend, with every point you mentioned. Maybe everyone won’t take these views, but I have to believe that many good American citizens agree with you totally.

The big question is, “How can we take our country back? And before it is too late?” I wish I had the answers. Read More»

Why we went to Washington, D.C.

Why some of us went to Washington, D.C., recently, myself and my wife included, is because our very existence as a nation is at stake.

Our federal government has run over our Constitution with out of control spending and takeover. Most of what the Congress does is unconstitutional.

The only thing that those elected officials in Washington fear is the voice of the American people. In person!

That is why we took our time and money to leave our comfortable living room and join the recent rally in Washington to protest the virtual takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy. Read More»
