    Stealing liberties

    John Kerry showed his negotiating abilities are as great as those of the Jimmy Carter administration when Jimmy not only gave Panama the Canal Zone but paid them to take it. Panama had only started the talks with a demand for the canal itself. Carter’s folks said no to that and gave them ...

    Hillary laughs

    Hillary Clinton was once touted by her supporters as the smartest person on the planet. She may be smart but she has been hiding her intellect lately. Certainly she has been hiding her integrity. Hillary finally deigned to offer to sit down for an interview with a CNN reporter. The reporter asked...

    Justifiable concern

    Years ago after church one Sunday morning, there was this man talking with my priest, Reverend Doctor Alexander Campbell, about his deep concerns for where American society was heading. This man was concerned about the future of my generation and our kids as well. When you are 17 or 18 years of ...

    What a week

    What a week for pundits. Hillary won’t talk, won’t meet, will talk and meet, but won’t say anything. Barack Obama and his folks declare that the strategy in Iraq is working even while ISIS takes over Rimadi and the leaders of Iran are the ones being able to visit Baghdad. George...

    Remember the sacrifice

    This week and next I step away from commenting in this column about the politics of our day and talk about the people who have ensured that people like you and I get the opportunity to enjoy our God given rights to live free and to express our opinions. God gave us our rights; the Constitution guarantees...

    Getting a pass

    Back in 1967 I was astonished at the reaction to the blockbuster movie, “Bonnie and Clyde.” It amazed me to hear folks cheering for the thugs of the Barrow gang and to hear folks talk about the final shootout that killed the two bank robbers ... one would have thought that superior...
