Run! Run for your life!
Here we are, Independence Day. Fourth of July. The day we celebrate throwing off the British yoke.
This week is a bit of potpourri in the column category. I just had to get each of these little nuggets off my chest.
It's always interesting to me what recent event will trigger the cognitive juices and produce a Friday column.
A few weeks ago, the national Students for Conceal Carry on Campus (SCCC) organization held an empty holster protest in support of the right to carry concealed handguns on college campuses. To be specific, the right of licensed, conceal carry permit holders to exercise their right on campus.
I recently saw the movie "Aviator" about millionaire eccentric Howard Hughes, who inherits a thriving business and a bunch of money from his parents then decides to make his own movie and use the profits to break into the aviation business. As with any story about success, there are plenty of obstacles in his path and plenty of nay-sayers whispering in his ear.
Do we really still have four months left in the Presidential election process?
Everyone's looking for solutions.
We're number one! We're number one!
Thursday was the National Day of Prayer. For all who attended, the event on the Bulloch County Courthouse lawn was a meaningful and spiritual service. Various Christian denominations participated in the event.
Why is everyone so angry?
Another day, another day being misconstrued, misinterpreted and misread.
For some reason, I'm getting the feeling that last week's column may have touched a nerve. Or fifty.
I'm becoming addicted to the blogs. These people make Dick Cheney seem like a reasonable and laid-back guy. For some insane reason, I have this ridiculous idea I can comment on someone's post and suddenly they'll realize the error of their ways.
It's time for Congress to do something actually worthwhile for the citizens they supposedly represent. Something for the common good.
