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 […]

Putin and Hollande Show Obama How It Is Done

America and her allies around the world have waited far too long to get the attention of the “peace loving” Muslims around the world, and put them on the spot to aggressively pursue and eradicate the radical extremists in their midst.

Four Words Unleash the Hounds of Hell

In case you haven’t noticed, I pay attention to the way media covers certain current events and topical stories. Many of you out there in “News Consumer Land” may just read, watch or listen to media reports as they break throughout the day without giving a passing thought to why or how the content is […]

Few secrets in government firings… If you look

Metro residents have seen more than their fair share of high-profile terminations and forced resignations in recent months, which included a police chief, an airport manager, and even an EEO bureaucrat.

First thing’s first. I do not believe there is any way Augusta District Attorney Ashley Wright could have prosecuted a successful case against any of the Richmond County lawmen implicated in the year-old steroids scandal, seemingly “wrapped up” last week. Not for current drug use or purchases, anyway. But only a liar or a fool […]

Carson and Trump Are Both Right… And You Know It!

1. A strict Muslim should never be President of the United States. 2. We need a secure, physical barrier to keep illegal aliens from crossing into our nation via Mexico. If you believe what most main stream media pundits have declared, you would have thought Donald Trump “pooped the bed” and Ben Carson “pooped the […]

GRU Name Change Engineered by Hull

GRU Name Change Engineered by Hull

Local philanthropist and property developer Jim Hull is the man. It begins and ends with him… and one other guy… fellow Regent Tommy Hopkins. Hopkins is an orthopedic specialist out of Griffin, Georgia. Three years ago Hopkins doubled down pretty hard in support of the name change to Georgia Regents University, and yielded to the leadership of […]
