“Socialist love to say they are helping the poor, but socialism by its own definition is equal results for all. No socialist nation will have a middle class because all have to be equal in the end (common property). So when you hear a socialist cry for taxing the rich, but know this, the level of the rich will always decrease until no one is different. That is a direct assault on the right to pursuit of happiness.”

“Blame Obama please. He signed the fiscal cliff bill into law to make this happen and he is now blaming the Republicans. Wake up people and quit being brainwashed by the news media and Obama. We are being led down the path of destruction.”
Wish I’d said that
“On the fiscal cliff, US Rep. Austin Scott believes ‘No deal is better than a bad deal.’ I say, ‘When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.’ A car dealer says, ‘Drive it like you stole it.’ A poet says, ‘Push off from the (fiscal) cliff and soar like an eagle.’ I wish I had said that.”
Thanks social worker
“I would like to rave on a school social worker employed by Tift County Schools who helped my family have a wonderful Christmas. Thank you Mr. Norman for your dedication and commitment on helping our three children have a Merry Christmas, including a Christmas dinner. My husband and I cannot express in words the joy and smiles on our children's faces when they discovered they were going to have Christmas after all. ”

It’s the little things that we remember
I saw this in the local newspaper when I lived in Bend, Ore. I hung on to it, and I just had to share...

On Saturday morning, I was driving my truck pulling a motorcycle trailer following the Freedom Seekers annual Toy Ride in Tifton. All of us (more than 100) were excited about the large turnout to make many underprivileged children have a joyous Christmas.
Letter to the Editor – Sign more of a distraction
It was my pleasure to visit your lovely city recently. Obviously, a number of your citizens care greatly about maintaining your fine architecture, shops and streetscapes. What's more, the cultural arts seem to be alive and thriving!
