Conservatives Should Be Aggressive

Conservatives Should Be Aggressive

If you ever wondered how national media outlets would handle the use of a profane insult directed at a legitimate news figure by another legitimate news figure let me show you right here from their respective websites: CNN: Donald Trump on Monday night repeated the offensive term a woman attending his rally shouted in reference […]

The Best and the Brightest Audience in Augusta Radio? All Mine!

The Best and the Brightest Audience in Augusta Radio? All Mine!

“Who do you think you are? You can’t say things like that on the radio…” — Unidentified caller to the first Austin Rhodes Show, July 16, 1992 Oh yes you could… and you still can. Successful local talk radio, with an emphasis on CSRA topics and politics, had been virtually absent from the airways when the decision was […]

Race Card Played on Hollywood Elite

Race Card Played on Hollywood Elite

This may be more fun to watch than any movie I will see this year. Something is foul in La-La Land, something is apparently horribly, horribly wrong, and this time, no one can blame it on conservatives. The 2015 Oscar nominations are out, and ut-oh, the field for the top awards is whiter than the […]

Hey Augusta: Fight Back, Win a Prize

Hey Augusta: Fight Back, Win a Prize

I have always considered the CSRA to be far more conservative than the folks in metro Atlanta, but the citizens there have lapped us several times over in recent years when it comes to the notion of taking back their neighborhoods in regard to criminal attempts to invade our homes and businesses. Take a look […]

Fred May Be “Dead,” but His Traditions Live On

Gotta love the attention to detail at Walt Disney World; they try to keep you engaged even while you are waiting hours on end for a few moments of terror and delight. Kinda reminds me of a few of my prom nights. Any who, while waiting to enter The Haunted Mansion, I noticed one of their appointed […]

Learning to Love the One You’re With

If you’re down and confused And you don’t remember who you’re talking to Concentration slips away Because your (party) is so far away Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove And the eagle flies with the dove And if you can’t be with the one you love, (voters) Love the one you’re with — […]

The Ghost of Christmas Past

The Ghost of Christmas Past

I cannot account for many of the Christmas Eves in the life of Bobby Brewer, but I can tell you where he was for about a half dozen of them about 35 years ago: The Rhodes Family Christmas Eve Parties at 1206 Oakdale Road, Augusta, Georgia. From 1966 through 1994 those parties were an annual […]

Time for Today’s Militia to Saddle Up

Time for Today’s Militia to Saddle Up

It is beyond time for American politicians to fully embrace and encourage the recognition of the Second Amendment as the unabridged, universal right of qualified Americans to possess reasonable arms, from coast to coast at all times, with only very rare and special exceptions. Recent headlines have brought us the disturbing news from red states, […]

Killer Cops Get Headlines, but Drug Dealers Get the Prize

Killer Cops Get Headlines, but Drug Dealers Get the Prize

Every now and then there will be a headline that seems to portend a serious assault on the clean living, innocent and well-meaning people of the CSRA. Then comes the rest of the story. Such was the case in the recent death of 40-year-old Quincy Bernard Brigham. An incredibly popular fellow, we hear. When word […]
