    Stifling growth
     
        The liberal Democrats refer to themselves as progressives, but when it comes to economics they promote just the opposite.
        Thanks to capitalism the USA became the most advanced civilization since the fall of Rome, yet the progressive liberals want to stifle this growth with socialism and over regulation. The thing that did the most to advance civilization was using fossil fuel for heat and energy, but the progressive Democrats are deceiving the public with the global warming scare tactics.

    Supports Hillary Clinton for President

        I support Hillary Clinton for President. Why, you might ask.
        Ninety-six years ago women in this country gained the right to vote, yet representation of women in public office has been anemic. Women constitute 51% of the population and our voices and perspective need to be represented in all governmental positions, including the presidency.

    The Democratic Party

        It perplexes a lot of people, me included, about why many people who are struggling economically and socially vote against their own economic and social interests.  It is stranger still that these same people seem to be the ones who revel in criticizing the very political party that has done the most for them.   Think about it.
        * If you receive or will receive Social Security benefits, you should thank the Democratic Party.

    Howell’s
    obsession

        It is ironic Rick Howell recently wrote for more gun control and this week expressed his opinion regarding a Texas abortion law.
        In the first article, Howell opined the need to take away a constitutional right to bear arms purportedly to save lives, and this week applauds a court-mandated right that has left millions dead. In one instance, he demands the courts and politicians legislate morality, and in the next, condemns legislation that attempts to do just that.

        “We, as leaders of major scientific organizations, write to remind you of the consensus scientificview of climate change.

    What is
    reasonable?

        Reasonable people differ on what is reasonable  Based upon his June 29, 2016 op ed it appears that Mr. Howell considers universal background checks and the use of secret lists to curtail the rights of law abiding citizens as reasonable measures. I respectfully disagree.

    Give an hour a week

        As the new school year begins, I’d like to make our community aware of a wonderfully meaningful experience that has been in our area for several years: The Big Brothers Big Sisters Site-Based Mentor Program.
        It is designed to pair a caring adult with a child in need of extra support.  They meet once weekly at school for about an hour during the child’s lunch/recess time.
