Alan Sanders interviews Congressman Barry Loudermilk

As part of my radio duties, I have had the honor and privilege of cultivating relationships with many leaders in my community, including several elected members of the Georgia State House and Senate as well as our District 11 U.S. Representative Barry Loudermilk from the state of Georgia. With the start of the 115th Congress,… Continue reading Alan Sanders interviews Congressman Barry Loudermilk

Those Inglourious Wealthy Basterds

Polls are showing Bernie Sanders pulling ahead of Hillary Clinton. It's something a lot of people didn't think would happen. But I saw it coming months ago, before Clinton's scandals. Clinton could be the best angel from here until the primary election but it won't help. You see, she's old news. She was in 2008… Continue reading Those Inglourious Wealthy Basterds

The difference between giving a fish and teaching to fish

A few years ago, my wife and I decided to try kayaking for the first time. We have always loved the water, but didn't know if a day on the river would compare to being at the beach. Comparing the two is like asking a parent which of their children is their favorites? Being at… Continue reading The difference between giving a fish and teaching to fish

Our writers have been working on a special Independence Day publication

Our writers have had their noses to the political grindstone since the primary election season has been underway in our country. They have been on the campaign trail, speaking out daily on social media and trying to inspire others to get involved in the political process.

Taking Out The Trash (Before the Party is Over)

Every great party starts with great guests. Inevitably, if the party goes on too long or happens too often, those guests invite friends. Those friends bring bottles and disposal what-nots. And those friends invite other friends who bring more cans and dishes to wash. And by the end of its life, said party isn't what… Continue reading Taking Out The Trash (Before the Party is Over)

We remind you: healthcare is not a right

With the problems surrounding both the launch of the Healthcare.gov website and all of the unintended consequences surrounding the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), it is important to remember that healthcare, in and of itself is not a right. Just because we "want" something or feel we are "owed" something, does not make is… Continue reading We remind you: healthcare is not a right

No One’s Making You Work There

A bit ago, McDonalds posted a sample budget showing that one could survive financially on what they pay. They were smart enough to include the fact that you'd need a second job to make all your bills but, it could be done. Or could it? Shortly after publication, several McDonald's employees posted their actual expenses,… Continue reading No One’s Making You Work There

Equal effort does not mean equal results: a word on redistribution

It's the Friday prior to daylight savings -- an idea first proposed by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 -- and it seemed appropriate to grab an excerpt from one of our Founding Fathers to give to our readers to start their weekend.   For those of you who truly cherish freedom and individual liberty, it may serve… Continue reading Equal effort does not mean equal results: a word on redistribution

Obama’s truth often happens when off-script

I have long been of the belief that when someone says something off-the-cuff, you get a true glimpse into who they really are at their core.  Though often mistaken as a quote from Shakespeare, the phrase, "Many a true word hath been spoke in jest," comes from Roxburghe Ballads in 1665, (though Shakes did say, in King Lear, that jesters do oft… Continue reading Obama’s truth often happens when off-script

Government Isn’t the Solution…THIS Should be the News.

This past week, I had the opportunity to take the family Up North. For those of you not from Michigan, “Up North” means, anywhere north of the City of Flint. (At least, it's what it means to me). We spent the night in two different hotels: One in Traverse City during the cities' annual Cherry… Continue reading Government Isn’t the Solution…THIS Should be the News.

Government is Responsible for Expensive Health Care

Why the hell does it cost $400.00 for inspection of a sprained arm and the wrapping of a bandage in the emergency room? How come a bag of chemo-chemicals costs $8,000.00? Why is it that a CT-Scan is about $4,000.00? How is it that a simple physical, where the doctor just has to read off… Continue reading Government is Responsible for Expensive Health Care
