"I urge those in our community to send a get well card to Jimmy Carter.....Just address it to Jimmy Carter, Plains, GA, 31780 -- It will get to him and his family and it will be appreciated.

While he maintains an office in Atlanta, President Carter lives about a block or two from the small post office in Plains.

It's important for anyone who believes in Peace and progressive politics to honor Jimmy Carter......This man was the greatest Peacemaker ever to be President.

He did more for Peace in the Middle East than all the other politicians over the last 40 years combined.

He passed the Panama Canal treaties -- a foundation for Peace in our hemisphere.

He has brokered Peace settlements in countless countries around the world.

I could go on for pages about the good things Carter has accomplished.

He preserved more wilderness area than any President other than Teddy Roosevelt.

He stood up for civil rights when it was very risky in South Georgia, and he hung a portrait of Martin Luther King in the Georgia Capital and declared at his Gov. inagural that "The time for segregation is over..."

Carter was WAY ahead of his time on energy and environmental policy.

If we had listened more to Carter, there would be trillions of tons of less carbon in our atmosphere.

Truly, the climate was a big loser in the election of 1980.

Through his work with the Carter Center two tropical diseases have virtually been eliminated in Africa.

He has done so much to ease human suffering.

Anyway, if you send a card to Carter it will be appreciated in Plains.

The great Peacemaker should know that his life has been so worthy and that most Americans regard him as an inspiration.

President Carter has a life that matters a lot.

Also, President Carter's enduring legacy is the work of the Carter Center.

I plan to make a donation to the Carter Center this year."

Impeachment: The Difference Between Nixon & Trump

Thom plus logo There is a very simple reason why some Republicans participated in the impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, but none have so far broken ranks against Trump. That reason is the US Supreme Court.
