  • Even Republicans are saying: Stop tweeting!

        I’ll make a confession here at the start, which may surprise you. I truly get tired of writing about Donald Trump. But nearly every day, there’s another outrage or stupid excess that can’t be ignored.
        Often, with this weirdo, it’s his Twitter account, which no one can apparently take away from him. Last week, he disgraced himself again in his long-running feud with the co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

  • The wreck of the William Fitzgerald

        Last month the USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62,) collided with a container ship southwest of Yokosuka, Japan. Yokosuka is the Fitzgerald’s home port. The collision ripped a 12 foot by 12 foot hole in her underwater hull, flooding a berthing compartment. News stories I’ve read say no collision warning alarm was sounded. The men had only a minute to escape. Seven of the men in that compartment died.

  • What would ‘Christian America’ really look like?

        Lately, there’s been a lot of speculation about why so many self-styled Christians voted for Donald Trump, especially given Trump’s obvious love of himself and money, his habitual lying, and other major character concerns.
        It seems everyone has settled on 80 percent as the reliable percentage of “Christian conservatives” who voted for Trump. They appear to believe, generally, that whatever faults he has, he is nonetheless carrying out what could be called a “pro-Christian” agenda.

  • Russia would lose a war with the U . S.

        There have been a couple of incidents in the air over Syria involving U. S. aircraft and Syrian aircraft.

An American plane shot it down.
