  • What others had to say about the Dallas shootings

    Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.):

        “Too many people have lost their lives this week due to senseless acts of violence.

  • Hillary: A right-wing target for decades

        Democrats will soon nominate a candidate for president whose resume is unmatched by anyone else in either party.
        Hillary Clinton is, as the president said, the most qualified person in a lifetime to seek the presidency. She topped a career of political activism by being elected U.S. Senator, while still First Lady, later serving as U.S. Secretary of State.

  • And, speaking of Loretta Lynch

        It comes as no surprise that FBI Director James Comey decided not to refer charges against Hillary Clinton. It’s not because I believe Comey honestly believes no charges are warranted. It’s because I believe Comey was doing what his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch told him to do.

  • Honoring our nation’s independence

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    as we come together this Monday to celebrate the 240th year of our nation’s independence, let us take the opportunity to reflect on our Founders’ understanding of our fundamental rights as individuals and their belief that only a system of representative democracy– supported by the rule of law– could guarantee our God-given rights.

     

  • A better way to do the people’s business

  • High court rejects Texas abortion law

        At the end of its current term, the U.S. Supreme Court struck a blow for legal abortion rights, gave former Va. governor Bob McDonnell a second chance, and approved once again affirmative action programs in higher education.
            Some say it’s the end of a conservative streak on the court. Well, we can certainly hope, and we are reminded of how important it is not to let the grubby Donald Trump be in a position to appoint Supreme Court judges.

  • Unity and .50 cal. machine gun bullets

        Attorney General Loretta Lynch said something incredibly stupid a couple of weeks ago. This shouldn’t be surprising considering the fact that she is a political appointee and that her primary qualification for the job is that she’s a loyal Obama sycophant.
        Lynch, speaking in the aftermath of the terrorist attack in Orlando said, “Our most effective response to terror is compassion, it’s unity and it’s love.”
        What a bunch of baloney!

  • The ethanol mandate has failed

    Families are gassing up the car to head out of town, fueling up the boat for a weekend at the lake, and getting out the mower to tackle the lawn. But do you know the impact ethanol has on all of these activities? According to the Department of Energy, ethanol contains about one-third less energy than gasoline, meaning the more ethanol in your fuel, the less mileage a tank of gas will get you. Plus, ethanol has been found to damage or corrode many small engines found in power equipment, motorcycles, or boats. The result?

  • Memories of becoming an American

    By James F. Burns

    Retired professor
    University of Florida

        I was born in 1939 in the Midwest.  Our house was surrounded by woods, and I well remember the peacefulness and tranquility of my youth.
         But even at ages 3 and 4, I was aware that we were at war.  I had toy soldiers to play with and knew that real soldiers could get hurt—though I had little idea of what war and death really were.
