Today's Opinions

  • The slugs come out at night

        As The White Man’s Last Stand takes shape in Washington, it’s possible to feel that you’re watching a concrete wall when the sun goes down, observing the slimy creatures that crawl out upon it.
        Yes, the slugs come out at night. Those who will serve the incoming Slug-in-Chief don’t have to meet even minimum standards of decency or qualifications, because, well, he didn’t either.

  • From the Ashes

        A little after 5a.m. on Thursday, November 10 a tractor-trailer ran off the road near Morgans Church Road in Bedford County and crashed into the headquarters of SML Good Neighbors.

  • The ‘uneducated’ voter

        It’s really a shame that some supporters of Hillary Clinton have resorted to name calling when it comes to trying to discern why their candidate lost.
        President-elect Trump’s supporters have been labeled as “uneducated,” “racist” and “stupid.”
        Take this week’s Liberal Agenda column that appears on this page. Rick Howell writes: “We just let legions of the uneducated choose our president...”

  • Democracy still isn’t safe from the left

        This year’s presidential campaign was almost as much fun as a barrel of rattlesnakes. One Facebook friend commented that Clinton vs Trump made her think of a video she saw of a snake chasing a rat. She wasn’t sure which candidate was the rat and which was the snake.
        I was grimly satisfied when I learned, Wednesday morning that Donald Trump won. This demonstrated what a wretched candidate Hillary Clinton was. Even Donald Trump could defeat her.

  • A choice bound to be regretted

        In the 1983 made-for-television movie, “The Day After,” two doctors are discussing the alarming international tensions that look as though they might actually lead to nuclear war.
        One says something like, “People really aren’t stupid enough to let that happen, are they?” The other doctor isn’t so sure. “Stupidity,” he says, “has a habit of getting its way.”

        We lost a dear friend from our midst when Piper left us on Thursday morning, October 27.

  • It’s time to unite and get to work

    The simplest way to make your voice heard is to show up at the ballot box. After all, the right to vote is critical in protecting all of our other rights. On Election Day, millions of voters came to the polls and put their support behind their candidates for the White House and Congress. The votes have been tallied, and Donald Trump is set to serve as the 45th President of the United States.
