Ardent Americanism

The Fourth of July brings to mind American Flags, parades, fireworks, BBQ and, where I live, country music. If you are like me, the opening notes of the national anthem cause you to stand up, place your hand over your heart and look around for a United States flag.

This Sebastian is the real deal and that’s no joke

I don't know how schoolteachers manage to do what they do and do it as well as they do, given the obstacles tossed in their way by politicians, bureaucrats, special interest groups, ideologues, social experimenters and assorted other navel-gazers - none of whom could carry their book bag. They sure don't do it for the financial reward. That, we save for semi-articulate professional athletes and Hollywood liberals who earn obscene amounts of money pretending to be someone else.

Defeating radical Islamic terrorism

I normally do not opine about national issues, as I am a state legislator. But I find I must make an exception in this case, partly because I was recently named the Chairman of the Georgia Base Realignment and Closure Committee whose mission is to protect our Georgia military installations.

Some good guys leave the playing field

We've spent a lot of time talking about people running for office this year, but I want to note the departure of a few who are running away from public office.

A Trump presidency would sink all boats

Hello, investors. Come join the foreign policy experts in daily panic attacks over what a President Donald Trump would mean for your world. What does one do about a candidate whose tax plan would send America into the fiscal abyss -who flaps lips about not making good on the national debt? Should we be investing in the makers of Xanax and Klonopin? And on the personal side, are there enough benzodiazepines to go around?

UGA athletic director does right thing the right way

I haven't met University of Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity, but I give him high marks for the way in which he has handled the blowback from the ludicrous Ludacris debacle.

A life in numbers

Numbers are how one keeps score. Those who engage in any competitive endeavor - business, sports, even weight loss - seek numbers to tell them how well they're doing and how much better than how many other people.

Democrats' divisiveness and the House of Cards

While there has been much consternation and media coverage of the split between Trump supporters and the Republican establishment in the past few months, the Democratic Party has focused on its unity message and progressed through its primary process by glossing over internal differences.
