Today's Opinions

  • The best? Really?

        Democrats had to be licking their chops and enjoying wholeheartedly the goings-on at the Republican National Convention held in Cleveland.
        What with a plagiarized speech, mini-revolts from the anti-Trump contingent and an outright snub by convention speaker Ted Cruz, there appeared to be much for the Democrats to laugh at as they watched from afar.
        Then came Philly.

  • The Kaine factor

        What can we say about Tim Kaine that hasn’t already been said?
        When he slipped out of Richmond at the end of his tour as governor, his revolting act of seeking to jump-start the release of convicted double-murderer Jens Soering to Germany, and then to freedom, was an act of cowardice.
        He did it in the dead of night and then stayed silent on the matter until the opportunity presented itself to run for the US Senate seat being vacated by Jim Webb.

  • What are you going to do about it?
  • The GOP should beg for forgiveness

        I certainly hope the American people were paying attention last week to the disgusting spectacle of hatred, racism, intolerance and dangerous ignorance on display in Cleveland.
        It was truly a sad thing to see: The Republican Party we once knew –  one produced Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Dwight Eisenhower – is dead, absolutely dead. It’s been replaced by this ugly, extreme, and hateful thing that was evidenced last week.

        Night boating isn’t just for fishermen and romantics any more. 
        A family night boat ride is exciting for children and grandchildren as they get to see a different lake after sunset. To make the most of a night boat ride opportunity, start with preparations for your boat…and for your passengers as well.  

  • The Iran deal one year later

    One year ago this month, President Obama inked an historic nuclear deal with Iran. It hardly seems like a year has passed since the Iran Nuclear Agreement came into being over the opposition of me and many others. However, perhaps that is because very little has changed when it comes to Iran’s bad behavior.
