Today's Opinions

  • Promises kept

        I noticed from last week’s Liberal Agenda the “Democratic” Party’s left wing is still working hard to win friends and influence people.

  • The Resistance comes to Richmond

        When the Virginia General Assembly opens this week, state Republicans will see the fruits of the clock-cleaning they received at the polls last November, specifically in the House of Delegates.
        There, a freshman class of progressive Democrats, many of them women, will serve as the visceral evidence of the GOP’s embrace of Donald Trump. That party’s price for its deal with darkness is already being paid.

    Conserving water

        The Bedford Regional Water Authority has asked the users of the new $42 million water line & filtration plant to start the New Year off by conserving water.

  • He’s president of the worst people

        As Donald Trump’s beleaguered and unpopular presidency stumbles into 2018, it’s still quite possible to wonder about the people who continue to support this ridiculous figure. Who, exactly, are they?
        Well, we first knew them as “angry whites,” because that’s the phrase that was widely used after what I correctly called “The Great Stupidity of 2016.” Surely we’ve seen nothing since then to doubt that. Trump voters were mostly white, after all.

  • Make Christmas great again

        Last month, Rick Howell, in his Liberal Agenda, offered the opinion that President Donald Trump has made it a terrible year. Retailers wouldn’t agree. This Christmas saw the highest level of spending ever. This level of spending would indicate that, aside from “Democratic” Party political hacks, Americans in general wouldn’t agree that it was a terrible year.

    Family Finances

        Consider the “if” followed by the “then”. I hope to get a raise next year; I have a chance of getting a raise next year; no chance of a raise next year and, if the company makes substantially improved profits, I might get a raise (a.k.a. trickle down).

  • Are right-wing politics ruining Christianity?

        In the aftermath of the controversial Alabama U.S. Senate race, many are wondering how people who describe themselves as Christians could have gone to the polls and voted for Roy Moore, a man credibly accused of child molestation?
        It’s a legitimate question, and one that harkens back to 2016: How could so many Christians have voted for a man with Donald Trump’s obvious moral shortcomings? It’s not enough to shrug and say, well, Hillary Clinton was worse. That’s a lazy answer, and it’s not accurate, either.
