I remember in high school civics classes the usual assignments about political parties, and Electoral College have given way to anguished venting about groping and sexual violence.
Now even conversations before and after church services, the stench of moral decay has stirred discussions about Bill Clinton’s behavior with White House interns in the 1990’s whether his conduct was actually worse than the current GOP presidential nominee, manic, narcissist and alleged sexual predator who cannot be trusted with your wife or daughter, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, the democrat standard barrier who is by all accounts is a serial liar, an accomplice who covered up her husbands infidelities with other women, who was impeached.
Nonetheless, our government is in serious disarray, and tending towards socialism. While either deserves it (based on character) whoever it is, the Donald, or has he, and other Americans label her “crooked Hillary” will have little credibility abroad in my opinion.
One’s integrity has been severely called to question, and the other cannot or will not clearly articulate a position and plan to implement that position beyond maligning the opponent’s character.
I refuse to try to choose the lesser of two evils, or vote for one to block the other. A choice between two evils still leaves an evil.
A vote for a third-party candidate at least does not reward a political party for offering choices that are beyond bad. Perhaps a strong third party showing in this election will motivate the republicans and democrats alike to offer better candidates to the American public. But the caveat still leaves the a percentage of the American voters who are just down right stupid, who wouldn’t know an outhouse from the state house.
And you can’t fix stupid.
Well, that’s my opinion anyway.

On Sunday, September 25, 2016, I was involved in a farm accident on my property here in Dodge County. Without hesitation, my wife rushed me to the emergency room at Dodge County Hospital. The team of nurses, doctors and support staff there went above the call of duty. In just a short time they were able to stabilize my condition, rule out more serious injuries and ensure my comfort until the surgeon could see me.
As we have seen small towns nearby lose their local hospitals, it’s only fitting that I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to the local officials, hospital administrators and staff of Dodge County Hospital. It is because of the dedication of this group of people that we, the citizens of Dodge County, can remain confident in the fact that top-notch care is readily available in our hometown. Thank you all for making Dodge County a great place to live, work and do business!

Blue states have 42 percent more mass shootings than red states. Shouldn’t the colors be reversed? Democrats do not want to be associated with the word red.

“America doesn’t have a gun problem, it has a Democrat problem.”
Please remind your liberal friends: Hillary Clinton is the candidate of the Communist Party USA. So was Obama – twice. Have you noticed – the leftstream press will not even describe Obama or either Clinton as a liberal. You hear it, but only from conservative commentators, never from liberal “news” people. Never say liberal when describing a liberal is their rule of thumb. They are careful to be deceptive.

You know the old saying is it’s hard to beat a good team twice in the same season. I guess that book didn’t say anything about three or four times.

The Lady Indians rose to the occasion as they beat Bleckley County twice and East Laurens to take the region softball championship last week in Dublin. Dodge will now host Early County Wednesday (today) in a double header in their best of three series. Game time for game one is 2:00 p.m.
