  • Good Brother Ben Carson: Is he truthful?

        Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is the religious right’s latest heartthrob. The neurosurgeon fits the space left open by the collapse of two other “Christian conservatives.”
        Mike “Hillbilly Huck” Huckabee is not faring well in the polls. It became so obvious that he is not seriously interested in the presidency, but only in another well-paying gig at Fox News or some other right-wing media closet.

  • He won’t risk his rickety navy

        It seems that President Barack Obama has so many foreign policy troubles buzzing around his head that he must feel like he’s blundered into a nest of killer bees.

  • Thanking our nation’s veterans

  • A new culture of leadership

    The American Idea – it’s what guided our Founders in creating a system of self-government. It’s at the root of American innovation, and the push by generation after generation to go places we have not before gone. The American Idea is about opportunity and freedom to prosper. As a Congress and as a nation, this Idea is something we cannot afford to ignore.

     

  • Let’s not fall into a Syrian sinkhole

        There is no sadder place on Earth today than Syria. It is not easy to correctly describe the suffering that has gone on for several years in that country.
        A civil war against the autocratic regime of President Bashir Assad has produced hundreds of thousands of deaths, and has forced millions to leave their homes.
        Much of the world is mystified over what to do about it. It’s also difficult to accept what may well be the truth about it: There’s little that any country can realistically do.

  • It’s too late for no-fly zones

        As I’ve mentioned before, President Barack Obama’s conduct of foreign policy gives me grave concern because I believe he is incompetent. His unwillingness to spend money on necessary defense projects along with his willingness to repeatedly reduce the size of the Army is another cause for grave concern.

  • New leadership provides a renewed opportunity

  • eto of troops must not stand

    They protect and defend – spending months away from home and loved ones, risking their lives for the cause of freedom. The sacrifice of the U.S. Armed Forces is great, and these men and women in uniform know all too well the danger they face. They know it’s not a game, and shouldn’t be treated as one. Ensuring our military has the resources they need to operate effectively and protect the American people is nothing to be delayed or held hostage by one signature.

     

  • County should adopt TNR

        Thank you for the wonderful article on feral cats last week. 
        Trap Neuter Return or T.N.R has been the subject of many heated discussions in the last several years. To understand the subject more clearly we need to understand how the feral cat phenomenon began.
