Where Have All the Christians Gone?

Where Have All the Christians Gone?

Jul 16, 2012

On July 31st, Gwinnett County voters will cast their ballots for the Board of Commissioners (BOC) Chairwoman as well as District 1 and District 3 commissioners. Two of the three races are quite tame; Charlotte Nashis unopposed for the Chair position and Jace Brooks and Laurie McClain are vying to represent District 1. But in District 3, the race is anything but tame. Incumbent Mike Beaudreau has three challengers– Tommy Hunter, Mike Korom and Jerry Oberholtzer. Under the best of circumstances, a four-person race is dicey, but in this contest, desperation has apparently given rise to the type of sleazy activities one would expect to find only in places like Chicago. And while all candidates claim to subscribe to strong Christian values and morals, some of the strategies being employed show that at least one candidate’s subscription has expired. The first evidence of desperation came in the form of a robo call that urged a “NO” vote for Mike Beaudreau. (Apparently the sponsor of the call was under the impression that Mr. Beaudreau had “Yes” and “No” boxes next to his name.) The recorded voice made a number of false or misleading claims and, in clear violation of election laws, failed to mention who paid for the message. A few days later, voters in Gwinnett County District 3 received a post card in the mail with similar misleading and false claims. Neither the robo call nor the post card promoted any candidate, so they could have originated from any of three campaigns, or through an independent source. However, considering the costs and potential benefit involved, and the funding source of previous smear campaigns, it seems highly unlikely that this one is being financed by someone not affiliated with at least one campaign. (Although this is purely speculation, this wouldn’t be the first time that a candidate with little hope of winning entered a race for no other reason than to force a run-off.) I’m no expert, but misstating information and making personal attacks hardly seems like Christian behavior. All of Beaudreau’s challengers are denying knowledge of the smear campaign or pointing fingers at their opponents or remaining silent. So where are the self-proclaimed Christians...

The year 2012 turns out to be politically quieter than 2010, when there were many statewide candidates. We will make endorsements in all primary races, Democratic and Republican, where we have met with candidates. Unfortunately, several candidates chose not to spend time with us. We will make no comment on these candidates, nor will we give those who chose not to visit with us space to answer questions we put to other candidates.

Here are our endorsements of the following candidates:

Quiet Riot Alienate Fans and Friends in and Attempt to Cover Wrong Doings to Now Fired Singer Mark Huff

Quiet Riot Alienate Fans and Friends in and Attempt to Cover Wrong Doings to Now Fired Singer Mark Huff

Jan 13, 2012

After my article yesterday on Mark Huff, the now former Quiet Riot singer, fired as he sat in his hospital room having his head shaved for brain surgery; there was a mass pouring of emotions across the internet from fans and friends of Mark Huff. People asking for their money back for tickets they had purchased, and saying they only wanted to go to see Mark, among the many other outcries of anger over his wrong doing. Quiet Riot eventually released a half cocked statement, saying they sent Mark a certified letter and making insinuations that Mark may be lying about being in the hospital. From QR Facebook page: “With regards to Mark Huff: My policy has always been not to air out the dirty laundry in public. That policy remains the same even in light of those who chose to make accusations. The fact is that Mr. Huff’s medical condition had nothing to do with the decision that was made though it is unfortunate that it comes at such a time. His wife assured me that Mark would be home this week, and as legal protocol dictated, a certified letter was sent informing Mark of the decision that was made and why it was made. This was days ago. The content of that letter is a private matter unless Mr. Huff decides to make the reason for his dismissal made public which I believe would be counterproductive for him. I will not go tit for tat with this issue. If certain person wish to villainies me, that is their prerogative.” This statement from the band sent out a rash of angry protests from friends and fans alike, I myself as the writer of the original article that soared the web, ended up in a conversation on MY Facebook page with a certain drummers girlfriend, whom insisted that a certified letter had been sent by them to Mark Huff, and that Mark was lying, which only lit my fuse because I KNOW for a fact that Mark is not lying. After said “girlfriend”, invaded my Facebook, myself and fans started noticing they were deleting any post on their page with the truth and only...

Grayson Vs Brookwood

Grayson Vs Brookwood

Oct 27, 2011

Some years ago, when I was in High School we had a relatively diverse and cohesive student body, but this new rivalry has created something amazing. Two Impressively Flawless and Professional Videos. Cliques have always existed just like the 80’s movies ‘Pretty In Pink’ and ‘Weird Science’. None more historically divisive than that of the three groups; Athletes, Musicians, and the Audio/Visual Club. Even though most schools had an innate allegiance to their aegis, there has never been such a memorable combination of all three groups, as both schools bring their Friday Night Football Rivalry to the world of YouTube and social media. Here is the original Grayson video that has almost 200,000 views! Brookwood Where You At? httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6NMA7lAnGs&feature=share and of course the reigning champions’ response. Grayson Step Your Game Up httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=On1uwi6UMgc&list=FLJIJsM-L8EKzEtdhE4Lq_fg&feature=mh_lolz …of course creative license defends all of the dangling prepositions in both videos and their...
