Remember This Dude?

He actually isn’t anybody in particular. The legend is that he was first drawn sometime around 1812 as a stand-in for the federal government during the War of 1812. Assuming that is true, he’d be 210 years old. Doesn’t look too bad for such an old geezer. But he’s been pointing that finger, trying toContinue reading “Remember This Dude?”

Bass Ackwards

That was my grandmother’s phrase for something like this when she wanted to use profanity and knew she couldn’t as the wife of a very prominent deacon in the church. (Grandma was a pistol, let me tell you. If you’ve ever seen The Beverly Hillbillies, you’ve seen a version of her. Granny Clampett was theContinue reading “Bass Ackwards”

Electric Gratitude!

Now there’s a concept that the people who don’t like “wokeness” will really have a time with! They’re always big on how if poor people were more grateful for what they were getting, they would take better care of their homes, cars, clothes,…and they would last longer and so on so forth. Sometimes I getContinue reading “Electric Gratitude!”

Now THIS Slate of Candidates Looks Like Georgia!

I am so proud of the Democratic Party in Georgia for the sheer diversity and QUALITY of the candidates in this race. It is unbelievably representative of the faces I see every single day in Georgia. Can’t say that about the other side. They look like Wonder Bread. They’re so white, it is blinding. Let’sContinue reading “Now THIS Slate of Candidates Looks Like Georgia!”

Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side

I went to and participated in the Candidate Forum hosted by the LaGrange/Troup County Chamber of Commerce and the Lagrange Daily News. My opponent was there, of course. I really don’t care for the things because you cannot get into the topics with answers that are only one minute long and ‘off-the-cuff’. I’m a moreContinue reading “Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side”

NOW WE FIGHT, No More Nice

Democrats have historically played the role of the Mr/Ms Nice People. We have been the ones who bent over backwards to be civil. We were asked to be bi-partisan and meet in the middle. But the “middle” kept moving away from us, so we would oblige dutifully and shuffle along after it. Until finally, FINALLY,Continue reading “NOW WE FIGHT, No More Nice”

What Part of 70% Do These People Not Understand?

If this was 49.9% or 50.1%, I’d understand the confusion. But it most definitely is not. These people are intent on FORCING their religious beliefs down the throats of EVERYONE in violation of our Constitutional Rights on not one, but FOUR different Amendments. This is OUTRAGEOUS. Let me list the ways that this is violatingContinue reading “What Part of 70% Do These People Not Understand?”

It’s Frustrating

Back when Lynn Westmoreland was the Congressman around here and Johnny Isakson was our Senator, I’d write and call to try to get answers to questions I had. Silence. Nothing from either one. But I did just happen to write to a Congressman in some other state, I think it was in Oregon, and dangedContinue reading “It’s Frustrating”

Sunrise, Sunset, Swiftly Fly the Years…

So go the lyrics of a song from the old Broadway musical “Fiddler on the Roof”, a story set in Russia about a family of Jews before the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Its main theme is that we should enjoy and value life and each other each day as it comes because it is asContinue reading “Sunrise, Sunset, Swiftly Fly the Years…”

Two People Make One Love

Love between two people is a peculiar emotion. It grows with every passing day, and it changes as time goes by. It can arrive slowly or, BAM, full-fledged. Sometimes it can die if not tended. But if worked on diligently, it can last a lifetime and beyond. What is also peculiar about it is thatContinue reading “Two People Make One Love”
