In-person support beats internet

Virtual support is a trend that is growing more and more popular in the military community. When spouses have questions, they no longer have to rely solely on their family readiness group for answers. Now, with Facebook pages and forums dedicated specifically to military spouse support, it's easy to get instantaneous feedback.

Dangers to our liberties lurk in our own desires

As Democrats and Republicans fall all over themselves trying to come up with ways not to raise payroll taxes on millions of Americans - all with an eye toward next fall's elections - there is another, more sinister proposal working its way through Congress.

Who cares that UGA lost the SEC championship?

In case you have been vacationing on the moon, you may have missed the news that the student-athletes from the University of Georgia, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation, located in Athens, the Classic City of the South, came up a wee bit short in attaining the football championship of the Southeastern Conference.

Is the United States ready for another war?

An International Atomic Energy Agency report says that Iran is a major nuclear threat. The IAEA shared satellite images, letters and diagrams with 35 nations to support its claim.

Shariah law is exploiting the U.S. constitution

For more than 235 years, we have depended on the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as the foundation of our judicial system. This system is being eroded by courts that are now making their own laws and throwing out the laws passed by our elected officials. The latest trend in the courts is to follow Shariah, which is Islamic law, and international laws that have nothing to do with this country.
