  • Trump’s supporters should be ashamed

        There have been two separate stories lately in the New York Times and the Boston Globe about the “near panic” that’s said to be gripping the national GOP over Donald Trump.
        Party leaders – the establishment, if you will – are very worried about the possibility that Trump could actually be the nominee. They know that would be political suicide, handing the Democrats the White House again without even a serious fight.

  • Bolsheviks

        I often refer to the left wing of the “Democratic” Party as its Bolshevik wing and Rick Howell’s Liberal Agenda in last week’s Bedford Bulletin gave a good illustration as to why I do that. By the way, Mr. Howell does a great job of articulating the positions of his party’s left wing. I always urge people to read it and then consider whether they really want to vote for the candidates who these folks like.

  • Why we’re thankful

    By James F. Burns

        An Ohio farm girl’s 1895 ride over a mountain is a metaphor for why we’re thankful for being Americans.  In a letter back home to her parents, Mary tells the story of her trip—from ”trial and tribulation” to triumph—tracing out our nation’s own exceptional journey.
        Mary was traveling to Virginia to take up a new job as an art teacher.  Her train arrived at Cumberland Gap at 5 a.m., only to find the tunnel through the mountain had caved in.

  • The bloody results of religious fanaticism

        In the wake of the latest terrorist attacks, word came before press time about the death of the instigator of the events in Paris. One can’t help but wonder. Did death bring him what he expected?
        He had committed himself to a violent path of extremism in the name of Islam, but violated the real teachings of that religion by killing a lot of innocent people. He met his own death before the age of 30.

  • Nous sommes tous français

        We are all French.

  • Being thankful

        Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100:4-5 KJV

        We truly have so much to be thankful for.
        Times may be difficult, but we can all find something this year to bow our heads for and give thanks to the Giver of all good gifts.

  • Caring for our veterans

  • A victory for the Constitution & the American people

    Put down the pen and phone, Mr. President. That was the message from a federal appeals court just a few days ago. In a victory for the Constitution and the American people, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an injunction preventing President Obama’s executive amnesty on immigration from being implemented.
