Let them eat cake

Cal Thomas's picture

In Arizona has come a test of the motto conservative Christians like to invoke: “Hate the sin, love the sinner.”

Republican Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed the “religious freedom bill” passed by the Republican legislature. While there is no mention in the bill of same-sex marriage, or even homosexuals, most people believe same-sex marriage and homosexuals were the targets of the proposed law. Read More»

Don’t let the law get away with Georgians’ property

There’s no doubt that Georgia’s law enforcement officials dislike strings that restrict civil asset forfeiture, which is the power of law enforcement to seize and keep property suspected of being involved in criminal activity. They’ve told legislators that time and again. Read More»

Most serious problems for blacks rooted in culture, not racism

Walter Williams's picture

People in the media and academia are mostly leftists hellbent on growing government and controlling our lives. Black people, their politicians and civil rights organizations have become unwitting accomplices.

The leftist pretense of concern for the well-being of black people confers upon them an aura of moral superiority and, as such, gives more credibility to their calls for increasing government control over our lives. Read More»

President Obama is all talk, no do

William Murchison's picture

Well, we saw it coming. But wait, that’s getting it backwards. We ought to have seen it coming. And we didn’t — “we” as a collective: we, the American people acting in our sovereign capacity as voters.

Why was it not plain to us in 2008, and yes, again in 2012, that Barack Obama was an unlikely choice for Leader of the Free World, not to mention head policy director of the World’s Most Dynamic Economy? Read More»

Living the American dream

Ronda Rich's picture

Somewhere along the line, it seems, people have stopped talking about the American Dream.

I can’t recall the last time I heard anyone, in person or through the media, remind folks that we live in the greatest country on earth and that here in this land of profound freedom, opportunities abound, and no one, regardless of race or level of economic upbringing, is held back from grand and lofty aspirations.

PTC needs — not more red lights — but a change in tactics

Before contracting for yet another traffic light at Line Creek in Peachtree City or anywhere else, consideration should first be given to updating traffic light programming as has been done in Fayetteville.

Most every traffic light in Peachtree City represents an impediment to through traffic because of outdated programming. Improving the flow of through traffic is key in mitigating the daily gridlock situation we have on Ga. Highway 54 West. And adding another traffic light with outdated programming will only exacerbate the problem. Read More»

Kindness in F’ville to a man soon to die

“Hey, Mike, I just left Broadway Diner (in Fayetteville) and something kinda neat happened. I was about to leave, when the lady said, ‘Well, I can bring your check to you now.’ ‘Well, okay. I’ll get the check.’

“And then I was packing up my leftovers and she said, ‘Somebody paid for your dinner tonight.’

“And I think, they probably left, but I don’t know who it was but, anybody you know ... Well, anyway, somebody paid for my dinner, so uh, things happen when you need it. Anyway, I just thought I’d let you know, and I will talk to you later, buddy. Bye.” Read More»

Thanks and an invitation from Fayette CARE Clinic

As we celebrate our 10-year anniversary this year, we must reflect on how far we have come from our humble beginnings.

In 2004, the Fayette CARE Clinic began in a renovated house with a $2,000 grant, and one donated exam table. The Fayette CARE Clinic was founded on a simple belief that every Fayette County citizen should have access to quality healthcare.

Today that dream has become a world-class medical office facility that in 2013 served 3,434 Fayette County citizens. Read More»

Fayette Samaritans needs your help after the holidays are over

For over 20 years, Fayette Samaritans has served families in our county that are in critical need of food, clothing and emergency financial assistance.

During 2013, donations remained consistent but families needing assistance nearly doubled. In October through December of 2013, Fayette Samaritans provided assistance to families on over 700 occasions.

With such a demand our resources were depleted. The cupboard was bare.

When our situation became known, the people of Fayette County responded with generous hearts and open hands. Read More»

Many military families had happy holidays because of you

As many of you may know, for the past 12 years I have, with your help, made it my mission to help the children of deployed and wounded service members through my charity, Embracing Military Families. And every year, I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our community.

In the fall, I wrote to you asking once again for your support. I offered this quote, often erroneously attributed to George Washington, but true nonetheless: Read More»
