Just sit back and think for a minute of what will happen to this country when Ron Paul actually wins the presidency... It's scary isn't it?
Buffy's story is a bit of a tear-jerker.

Down at the old English colony of Jamestown in Virginia, they are spending the summer celebrating what organizers call "America's 400th anniversary."
The headquarters of the 3rd Infantry Division deployed two months ago and already we've made great progress. I am so proud of our soldiers.
Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson broke a cardinal rule for Georgia Republicans. They allowed Sen. Ted Kennedy to smile upon them.
Since transplanting myself from the over-developed and polluted town of Cleveland, Ohio to the forested and marsh-lined county of Liberty, I have begun to change my attitude regarding the environment.
DO YOU EVER WONDER? Why are automobiles geared to go 120 mph when speed limits nationwide are 70? Why is it OK for a business to have barbed wire around the top of their fences, but it's against the law for homeowners? Why did automanufacturers do away with the dimmer switch on the floorboard? What do those large question marks on our historic site signs mean? When will Frank Cochran Drive be completed? Why have the good sitcoms on TV been replaced by violence, car chases, nudity, foul language and Hollywood scandals? Why do people find it pleasurable to ...
Well, don't you feel lighter, Liberty County? I wish it was as easy to "reduce" personally as it is to "reduce" as a community.
France has often, for better or worse, led the way during its history: in state-building, when Louis XIV created the modern French monarchy; in proto-totalitarian politics, with its revolution of 1789; in mass-mobilized warfare, in the wake of the revolution. Now, France is being reduced to a sad object lesson, a warning of the deadening effects of big government economics.
Yet another turn in the long and tortuous road to immigration reform, and still no guarantee Congress is heading in the right direction.
Former President Jimmy Carter recently said the Bush administration was "the worst in history" in international relations. Well, I will give President Carter some credence in knowing about a presidential administration being the worst. We can honestly say his administration was clearly the worst one during the past 100 years.

Georgia is the nation's sixth fastest growing state on a percentage basis and the fourth fastest growing on a numeric basis. The Peach State population is spiraling upward at an annual rate of nearly 15 percent per year. Close to 40 counties - mostly in north Georgia - exceed the 15 percent growth rate.

Back years ago, when Mama was widowed, it became suddenly and shockingly clear that she wasn't completely capable of being on her own. This was news to us because she had always stepped up and did whatever it took to look after our family. She was quite ingenious and hard-working.
Awhile back, I worked with a woman who was vocal about her belief that potential parents should have to pass a strict screening before welcoming children into the world. Although, from a purely scientific standpoint, there was no way to enforce my coworker's slightly far-fetched proposal, she maintained all human beings should be stripped of their fertility at birth and should have their ability to procreate returned to them in their mid-to-late 20s only if they meet certain criteria.
Editor, I was very pleased to read that Coastal Electric Cooperative recently has been named the best electric co-op in Georgia and also received the 2013 Georgia Electric Membership Corporation "Community Service and Volunteerism Award."
Now that Congress has its immense, $1.1 trillion bipartisan funding bill in hand, Capitol Hill is breathing easier.
I'm not sure how it is with soldiers in non-combat roles.
Look up there in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a really a bird - hopefully, lots of them.
Carter, R- Pooler, will report each week during the Legislative Session, which began Jan. 13 and is expected to last until March 1.
Last week under the Gold Dome, the Georgia General Assembly concluded on Friday to complete its first official week of the 2014 legislative session. As this new session begins, please know that, as always, it is an honor and privilege to represent you and your families at our state Capitol.
I read a news report this week that said while we are living a lot longer in the U.S., people in other countries are living even longer. Bummer.
The renowned bow-maker in my hometown died. Only in the South would this probably be news, because we Southern women do admire a well-wrapped package.
Last week, I had my first parental brush with peer pressure. No, my daughter didn't come home from daycare complaining that her 1-year-old classmates are trying to influence her clothing choices or persuade her to join their social cliques. I was the one who felt an urge to conform, or rather, an urge to help my daughter conform. Then I realized that thoughts like the ones swimming through my head very well could be the reason why peer pressure exists in the first place. Kids have to learn it from someone.
Of all the numbers thrown at us over the course of last year, one stands out for me. I hope we can avoid repeating it this year.
Complaints about lost constitutional rights are common these days, especially the six individual rights enumerated in the First Amendment.
As we see news stories and Facebook posts sharing comments and critiques about recent budget items that directly impact military families' futures, it is easy to sit back, type a snarky comment and continue the sharing train.
Imagine filling up your gas tank and realizing that the price you were charged was more than the price advertised. What would you do?
