Declining dollar hits home

I love economics. I love talking economics. Everything the government does can be reduced to economics.

Be part of the process

Ah, it's the second week of January and we're full into the throes of the 2008 presidential elections. A whole 1.4 percent of the populations has cast its vote so far. Yep, only 98.6 percent of the population to go.

I wish I looked closer

Recently, a gentleman wrote me about an experience he had as a teenager in the '60s. I thought it appropriate to share the story, especially on this weekend before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

America needs a new direction

Ah, it's the second week of January and we're full into the throes of the 2008 presidential elections. A whole 1.4 percent of the populations has cast its vote so far. Yep, only 98.6 percent of the population to go.

America needs a consistent President

I'm writing this on the eve of the Iowa caucuses because, like all writers, I have a deadline. So, as this sits in the computer waiting to be printed on the page, the first event of the 2008 political season will be underway.

The pit-huahua meets the Great Dane

Peke-a-poos and cock- a-poos have been around a while, but the designer dog thing exploded a couple of years ago and suddenly there were Labradoodles and chiweenies, Lhasa-poos, and a host of combinations of dog breeds.

Explore the power of love

The holiday season is approaching but for some reason all I can think about is the shootings at the mall in Nebraska. Which makes me think of the Virginia Tech shootings which makes me think of the Columbine shootings.

Defining his position on the war

I debated this past week whether or not I would continue to press the issue of Iraq and Christians and the war and the appropriate response our government should have had. I must be a glutton for punishment (that or I really like getting yelled at).

Mortgage bailout far from conservative

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been critical of the president and his administration for the war in Iraq they dragged us into and the trillion or so dollars they have literally spent blowing up nouns - you know, people, places and things. For this, I've have been called a liberal (not to mention a few things I can't put in print).

If I had a trillion dollars

Earlier this week, I was invited to witness the local American Legion Post #90 presenting Congressman John Barrow with over 5,800 signatures supporting Statesboro as a potential future site for a Veterans Administration community-based, outpatient clinic. It was great to see the community come together to work toward fulfilling promises made to our former soldiers.
