“We all have a right to Healthcare, we just do not have the right to force someone else to provide it. If we did then our right to bear arms (guns) would mean the arms would have to be provided. Common sense is missing. We are currently in a world where right is wrong and wrong is right.”
No assault weapons
“Banning assault rifles are only taking them out of the hands that OBEY the law.”

“This is to the ‘law officer’ who thought it appropriate to use profane and abusive language in front of and to innocent, law abiding citizens at their place of employment. This matter was your own personal situation and using your ‘authority’ for ‘back up’ was not necessary. You know who you are and you should be ashamed of yourself.”

“What did the conservatives obsess about before the national debt became their full-time favorite? That debt will never be paid unless we have a booming economy for about 10 years.”
Re-route the train
“Well I see the government is going to sell off all those shares of GM stock we, the taxpayers, bought? To break even we need to get $70 a share. The problem is the shares are around $28 a share now. Oh well, what is a few billion dollars in losses. After all, we saved all those union jobs and they all helped get Obama re-elected in exchange for dang near owning the company now.

You knew this was going to be a special season.From the season-opener, a 7-5 win over Crisp County and UGA signee Robert Tyler, to the very last pitch in Marietta May 15, the Tift County baseball team took us on a great journey that reached even further than on the baseball field for me.
May 21 Column – George F. Will
Leaving aside the seriousness of lawlessness, and the corruption of our civic culture by the professionally pious, this past week has been amusing. There was the spectacle of advocates of an ever-larger regulatory government expressing shock about such government's large capacity for misbehavior. And, entertainingly, the answer to the question "Will Barack Obama's scandals derail his second-term agenda?" was a question: What agenda?

Letter to the Editor for May 15
As a grandson of Henry Harding Tift and a long-time resident of Tift County, I would like to tip my hat to Edd Dorminey for the pivotal role he played in petitioning the state legislature to officially recognize the original intent that Tift County be named in honor of Capt. Tift.

I caught a lot of flack the past couple of days because, and I quote, “You write a column and you didn’t write about your mom for Mothers Day?”Yeah. Um. Just yeah.
