Debt ceiling for dummies. ... Increasing the debt ceiling is not giving the president a blank check. ... It allows the administration to finance money to honor the blank checks the Republican congress already wrote. Remember, only congress has the power of the purse, not the executive branch.

... I was just respondin' to the person who put ... in the Soundoff about churches usin' the public schools on Sunday. And I just wanted them to know that the churches pay rent ... to use the schools, which is very beneficial to the schools, since their funding is not that great. Thanks and have a blessed day.

While it would be nice to have a new arena ... where we could possibly -- hopefully -- have ... horse shows, animal shows, dog shows and whatever, I think the job should stay in Bulloch County and not go to Tennessee or any place else. We have enough people here that need work. ... Keep the jobs in Bulloch County ... or don't build!

Viewership of Fox News has dropped by 30 percent over the past year ... in the 25-54 age group. Do you suppose the people watching Fox ... finally figured out they were being lied to?

... Obama and the Democrats ... are using the Newtown massacre ... to pass additional gun control measures. The fact is more people are killed by hammers and clubs ... than by rifles, according to FBI statistics. ... In 2011, there were 496 people killed by hammers and clubs ... and only 323 killed by rifles. ... I suggest we require background checks on all hammer buyers ... and outlaw all hammers over 10 ounces. Thank you.
