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. That honor went to the young men of Louisiana State University, who, having observed them in post-game interviews, are destined to become either, you know, great orators or, you know, quantum physicists.

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. Iran claims that its nuclear program is for peaceful energy use only. Can we believe Iran? Can we believe the IAEA? Remember, the American people once were told that Saddam Hussein was developing nuclear weapons, yet we found none.

When it comes to a baby, teaching goes both ways

It's hard to believe that our baby, Anastasia, was born one month ago. In a way, it feels like she was born yesterday. At the same time, it feels like she's been a part of our lives for so long now.

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.

Honoring a wise man who made a difference

Today, I ask for a moment of personal privilege. It was two years ago this week that I wrote about the Three Wise Men who have so greatly influenced my life: Roy Hodnett, a real estate magnate on Saint Simons Island; Dr. Raymond Cook, my college professor, now residing in Valdosta and John W. Jacobs Jr., a broadcast pioneer and philanthropist from Gainesville. All three are in their 90s or close to it. All three are a part of the Greatest Generation. All three are family men of faith. I could not have asked for better role models.

A bipartisan case for cynicism about government

Two state officials, two states, different political parties. Their sins are of vastly different degrees of seriousness. But they both illustrate vividly why citizens, who are supposed to be responsibly represented by people who allegedly serve at our pleasure and on our behalf, have become so cynical and exasperated.
