Billy-Rainey

This week’s feature is about a person who has been involved in Southern Gospel Music for over 35 years, mostly in television.  His name is Billy Rainey. I featured Billy a few years ago and was thinking about him this week so decided to pay tribute to his dedication to Southern Gospel Music. Billy is from the upcountry and working with WGGS-TV in 1975 and continued until his retirement a few years ago.. He was the host of “Down Home Gospel” which airs each Saturday night. Now for a look at this person and his mark on Southern Gospel Music.

What we need in our country are guns, guns, and more guns.

The Second Amendment states "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

The greatest fear of any Marxist totalitarian government is gun toting citizens.  This country was not founded, conquered and settled by hippies giving the peace sign to defeat the Indians, French troops, and English soldiers, but patriotic and rugged farmers and frontiersman opened America to be settled with an axe to clear the land and a gun to protect what they had built.  During this time of American history sons, daughters, and mothers were taught to shoot a gun by the fathers in order to protect and provide for the household.  This is an excellent example for fathers to follow today.  After America gained a toehold on the Eastern part of this country the Westward expansion would have never taken place without "the right of the people to keep and bear arms."

Charles (Charlie) Waller, “The Grand Ole Gospel Man” PDF Print E-mail

When I began to write “The Gospel Music Corner,” I said that not only would the feature be about groups and artists but also about folks who had made an impact on the gospel music industry. This week’s feature is without question about one person who has impacted the gospel music industry nationwide, as well as the upstate, as much if not more than any other person.

This person is Charles (Charlie) Waller, “The Grand Ole Gospel Man.” Charlie is one of the more colorful people in Southern Gospel Music. He loves traditional Southern Gospel Music and works tirelessly to promote and preserve it. Charlie was born in 1948 (a very good year) in Waynesboro, Mississippi. Today he divides his time between Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and Georgia.

Janet-Paschal

This week’s article is about a very talented lady, Janet Paschal. Janet recalls flipping through one of her old diaries her mother found in the attic. “Page after page said, ‘Nothing happened today,’ ‘Nothing happened today,’” she says.

As she got older, things began to happen. As they did, she recorded them in her journal. Grammy and Dove award nominations as well as appearances with Billy Graham and President Bush. Touring with Bill and Gloria Gaither. Those journal entries have helped her gain perspective on life, they’ve become words for songs, and now they are the basis for her first book, “The Good Road.”

Repeating the Mistakes of History

Both Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon thought that the biggest mistake of the Vietnam War was President Kennedy’s involvement in the overthrow of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem in November 1963. Diem became the first president of South Vietnam in 1955 following the partition of Vietnam into a Communist North Vietnam and the Republic of (South) Vietnam after the French withdrawal from Indochina in 1954.

“Every generation needs a new revolution.” – Thomas Jefferson

It should be obvious to most thinking Americans that we have a lawless President. He cares no more for the Constitution, justice, or truth than a cigarette butt. He governs by unprincipled political expediency. He is by far the most dangerous radical ever to occupy the White House, and if we do not throw him out of the White House in November, freedom will have seen its last hours by 2016. The long and stealthy march of cultural Marxism will have triumphed in political despotism. The American dream will be a totalitarian nightmare.
