Tweet     As we get closer to time for the Georgia GOP Primary, I’ve decided to issue a formal endorsement.  It might not mean a whole lot to some folks, and I have little doubt many of you will disagree, but I’m throwing my support, and my vote, behind Ron Paul. Ron Paul is [...]

Tweet     I love this town.  I’ve tried for years to not love it, but I really do.  I have hopes and dreams that all revolve around this town.  I have a son who was born here.  I have a daughter on the way that will be born here.  My wife was born here, [...]

So close, and yet so far away

Tweet     Monday night, I heard a political official come as close to the truth of what the problem is in Albany than any other time in my life.  Mayor Dorothy Hubbard came oh-so-close to putting her finger on the problems in the Good Life City, but still was able to miss it by [...]

ASU has plenty to account for

Tweet   Albany State University is in a bit of trouble.  The “Historically Black” school apparently admitted students who didn’t meet the minimum standards for the University.  For some, this may not seem like that big of a deal, but with Albany State, it is. ASU, you may recall, made a pretty big deal out [...]

Libertarians not that hateful

By   /  January 23, 2012  /  News, Outlook  /   Comments

Tweet     I was having a conversation with someone last week when they recounted a conversation they had with someone else.  “He doesn’t like libertarians because he says he wants to help kids on seniors,” she said.  I was taken a little aback by that, because if that’s the image we libertarians have, it’s [...]

Tweet   This past weekend, Albany Herald metro editor Carlton Fletcher wrote in his column about something an anonymous source told him regarding what can only be described as voter fraud.  Fletcher’s column, coupled with the Journal article several weeks back, clearly indicate that something is going on in this town with regard to how [...]

Down with hyphens

By   /  January 13, 2012  /  Outlook  /  Comments Off

Tweet       I’m sick of hyphens.  Oh, I still use them, but I’m sick of them.  I’m not alone either, because more and more people are starting to lash out about hyphens. The problem with hyphens isn’t some bizarre issue with a punctuation mark, but the fact that so many Americans identify themselves [...]

Breathe new life on to EDC

Tweet   Now that we know who our next mayor is, and I’ve addressed her directly (see last week’s Outlook), it’s time to address the city leaders as a whole.  You see, our economy sucks.  I could sugar coat it in such a way that sounds less offensive as a whole, but that just wouldn’t [...]

A note to the Mayor-elect

By   /  December 18, 2011  /  Outlook  /  Comments Off

Tweet     Dorothy Hubbard is our next mayor.  Some are thrilled by that prospect, some are not.  Regardless of people’s feelings on the matter, it’s a done deal.  However, I thought I would take a moment to speak to our new mayor. To start with, Mayor-elect Hubbard, you should consider one very important fact.  [...]

Protest votes highly unlikely

Tweet       I sat in a superior courtroom for endless hours, listening to lawyers speak.  Apparently, I had angered God and was being punished for whatever transgressions I had committed.  After said punishment, I deeply apologize for whatever I did to deserve that. However, there was something entertaining about that visit to a [...]
