Charlie Gard and President Trump’s Speech in Warsaw

Eleven month old, Charlie Gard, has been granted what is the equivalent of a stay of execution. The Great Ormand Street Hospital had requested and won the right to keep Charlie in its custody and remove his life support.

According to a story in the Daily Mail, seven international experts presented evidence that the baby has a much higher chance of survival than originally thought. Based on the evidence, the hospital requested a new hearing in the High Court. Continue reading

Slapping Martin Luther King’s Dream in the Face

Joy Reid of MSNBC sent the tweet below about the shooting last Wednesday at the practice for the Congressional Republican baseball team.  She decided to play the race card and the gender card along with private and personal details about one of the agents.

In the famous speech of Martin Luther King, he preached that he had a dream about a future in America. The memorable line from that speech was plain and clear. Continue reading

Why I Support Karen Handel

Karen Handel for Congress

Click on the Banner Above to Donate to Karen Handel

I have been reading a book published by Hillsdale College entitled, The US Constitution, A Reader. The book is a compilation of original writings by our founding fathers and those who influenced their thinking.

You may wonder what this has to do with the title of this post – “Why I Support Karen Handel.” It is a reminder that the platform on which Karen stands is not something new. Her philosophy is grounded in the same philosophy documented over two centuries ago. Continue reading

A Farmer and His Faith

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

An Appeal to Georgians Who Vote Democrat

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

The Governor Who Prayed for Rain

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

The Awe of Christmas

There is nothing like the twinkle in a child’s eyes gazing at a Christmas tree. Words like awe, wonder, amazement, peace, warmth, joy, and love are feeble efforts to capture the feelings of Christmas.

The deluge of news and events at home and abroad can drown the simple wonder of the Christmas season. Negativity abounds.  King Solomon’s writings in Ecclesiastes reminds us that things in this world remain strikingly the same across time. Continue reading

The Day After Election – My Predictions

Election day is finally here. Tomorrow your in-box should see a significant drop in e-mails frantically asking for money and revealing multiple wrongdoings by Hillary along with various and sundry conspiracy theories.

If you have not already voted, then go get in line and stay there until you vote. I was the first in-person early voter to cast my vote in Crisp County. Continue reading

Betty Evans Impacted Untold Numbers in Her Life

Last week, I saw a post on Facebook from Randy Evans asking for prayer for his mother. A few days later I saw the obituary notice. I had the opportunity to attend the funeral service this morning. A funeral is a time when the brevity of this life stares us in the face as a stark reality.

Most of my readers know of Randy Evans as a leader in the Republican Party. He is Georgia’s National Committeeman at the Republican National Convention. He is often called on as a guest on national news shows. Continue reading

With a Firm Reliance on Divine Providence

On Monday, we will celebrate the 240th birthday of the United States. It is far more than just the anniversary of an event in time. The opening words and the closing words of the Declaration of Independence have a powerful message for us today.

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them….”

Our nation began, not by beseeching King George to give us freedom, but by boldly Continue reading
