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

2nd District Unanimously Supports Handel in 6th

On Saturday, April 22, 2017, Republicans in Fourteen Congressional Districts across Georgia held District Conventions.  The Second Congressional District unanimously adopted a resolution supporting Karen Handel in the special election runoff on June 20th.

Congressman Sees His Constituents as Helpless

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

Trump – Missiles – and Our Adversaries

Last week, President Trump announced that President Bashar al-Assad of Syria had deployed chemical weapons again. Visibly moved by the news, and in a reference to former President Obama’s red-line speech, Trump said that this attack crossed “many, many lines, beyond a red line, many, many lines.”

The following day, he ordered a narrowly targeted strike on the Syrian air base from which the Syrians launched the attack. President Trump was right in ordering the strike. Continue reading

I May Be Proved Wrong About the Nuclear Option

Over two months ago, I predicted that there would be no nuclear option in the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch. (See February 1, 2017 – “There Will Not Be a Nuclear Option”) It now appears that I may be proven wrong. I still find it hard to believe that the Democrats will take this Kamikaze dive.

Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, is one of the strongest advocates of Senate decorum and tradition. On April 2, 2017 Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, McConnell made it crystal clear that Judge Gorsuch will be confirmed. Continue reading

Lessons Learned from Obamacare Replacement

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

Democrats, Gorsuch, and the “Little Guy”

I watched some of the Gorsuch confirmation hearings yesterday. Democrats were clearly playing the class warfare card. This was a strategy revealed before the hearings even began. Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono summed it up with her statement:

“I have not seen that the rights of minorities are a priority for you. In fact, a pattern jumps out at me, you rarely seem to find in favor of the ‘little guy.’”

The Character Assassination of Jeff Sessions

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

Casinos and the Constitution

The Georgia legislature is considering a bill commonly referred to as the Destination Resort bill.  Senate Bill 79 and House Bill 158 are clones.  This allows introduction and consideration of the same bill on parallel tracks in both House and Senate.

The Act is 28 pages long. The title alone is 163 words (lines 1-12).  The title explains that the Act establishes a gaming commission, authorizes licensing for up to two destination resorts, licenses suppliers and certain employees, regulates certain gaming activities, provides for fees and taxes and their distribution, enforcement of certain credit instruments, and provides for a contingent effective date.
