Locally produced services can make great gifts

As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide us monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods — merchandise that has been produced at the expense of our labor forces. This year will be different. This year, Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for each other at home. At gift giving time, there is no longer the old excuse, that nothing can be found produced at home by our own citizens.

Oh ... Yes, here is a list! Think outside the box, people! Who says a gift needs to fit in a shoe box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?


Volunteering for a charity is wonderful, but did you ever wonder how many jobs people might have if people didn’t volunteer? Case in point!

Angel hospital. We just saw a picture where Mr. Hubbs, CEO of Angel hospital stated by having so many volunteers that Angel saved over $300,000, I think that money could have been salaries to Macon County residents.


Washington is corrupt (and Raleigh and Trash-dump Hill). Democracy is the creature of oligarchy. Constitutional change is needed.

But if the oligarchs possess our government, they are not going to permit change that will reduce their power and influence. (see here)

So, how to achieve constitutional change?


At this time of Thanksgiving, I want to gratefully acknowledge several people and organizations that have worked very hard on behalf of the abandoned and neglected dogs and cats in Macon County. Because of the dedication of these people and their “hands on” efforts, we have more awareness about unwanted pets and a better grasp on the severe problem of overpopulation.
