On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at the United States Supreme Court, Justice Clarence Thomas, a Georgian, administered the oath of office to Sonny Perdue, a fellow Georgian, to serve as the United States Secretary of Agriculture. Sonny Perdue joins President Trump’s administration with unique qualifications.
He grew up on a farm and has experienced the full cycle of life in farming. He knows what it is like to prepare the soil, plant the seed, care for the growing crop, harvest, move it to market, set aside proceeds from the fruit of his labor, and start the process all over again. Continue reading →
In a recent editorial, Congressman Sanford Bishop decried the 2018 federal budget submitted by President Trump. He wrote that the proposal would be a “recipe for disaster” for the people of the Second Congressional District of Georgia.
Bishop said that his metric for analyzing legislation is whether or not it improves the lives of the people of Southwest Georgia. His editorial reveals his view of the citizens of Southwest Georgia as being helpless and totally dependent on the federal government. Continue reading →
The talking heads and pundits have pointed their fingers and cast the blame on the “failure” of the Obamacare legislation vote that Speaker Ryan cancelled last Friday. I do not see productive value for the American people and the Republican Party in the finger pointing and blame.
It is beneficial to take a look at what happened and learn from the process. Three words summarize what happened: Communicated, Complicated, and Confidence. Continue reading →
Last November millions of average Americans stormed the polling places around the nation in an historic demonstration of electoral shock and awe. Hillary Clinton and Democrats, buoyed by a supportive mainstream media and erroneous pollsters, presumed an easy victory followed by weeks of celebration.
Their hopes were shattered. Even the old phrase “agony of defeat” could not describe the depths of despair and unhinged anger put on display by the left, including the mainstream media.Hillary and the Democrats were desperate to cling to anything that would help deflect the devastating losses. The left locked on to a Russian conspiracy to explain how Donald Trump could have possibly won the election. Continue reading →
I know Georgians who vote Democrat. Some come from a Labor Union background. Many are African-American. Some are elderly Caucasians who loved Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The common denominator is that they are fed the line that Republicans are greedy, uncaring, and out of touch with the common people. That is a false caricature. The truth is that the Democrat party is not the party of the common man. It took a sharp detour from that path long ago. Continue reading →
Following every election candidates, both winning and losing, make statements about being united as Americans. They say that it is now time to unite as one for the common good.
In past elections, even when Republicans won, it appeared that they were more concerned about the appearance of “unity” than the principles on which they ran to get elected. There is a dangerous deception in the calls for unity. Most often those calls are from the media and Democrats. They are loudest when Republicans win. Continue reading →
President-Elect Trump formally announced former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue as his pick for Agriculture Secretary. The first headlines from mainstream media were about Sonny’s call for prayer for rain in 2007.
Sonny Perdue is a man of faith. He grew up on a farm. It is virtually unheard of to find a farmer who does not acknowledge reliance on divine Providence. Praying for good weather conditions is a part of life in a family and community dependent on agriculture. Continue reading →
Last Friday morning I wrote a letter to Congressman Sanford Bishop asking him to demand that the “pig” painting be taken down. According to News reports from last Friday evening, the painting in the halls of Congress depicting police officers as pigs will come down on Tuesday, January 17. I still want him to respond to my request. The letter I sent is displayed below.
Last year Governor Nathan Deal vetoed a reasonable bill to defend religious freedom in Georgia. He knew about instances of Georgia government leaders making decisions relying on political correctness instead of the law.
Early in Governor Deal’s administration, the Commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources ordered that all Gideon Bibles be removed from the hotel rooms of state park lodges and hotels. Governor Deal, himself, had to step in to overturn that foolish decision.
Now, the State of Georgia is entangled in a federal discrimination lawsuit. The suit was filed by an African American former District Health Director for the Department of Public Health in 2014.
Dr. Eric Walsh came with stellar commendations from his position in California. He happens to be a 7th Day Adventist lay minister. Continue reading →
Be assured, God is not deaf to the cries of the millions of innocent babies callously killed as if a sacrifice to the god of convenience. Then as if mere killing was not enough, Planned Parenthood and other organizations determined that if they killed the baby is just the right manner, they could butcher the body and sell the parts to highest bidder.
Our nation cannot continue down this path and expect that there will not be consequences from the just and righteous Creator who watched over us and formed this nation of freedom. Do not think for a moment that the great United States of America cannot fall under God’s judgment. Continue reading →
