  • Festival time

        Labor Day weekend kicks off a number of pastimes.
        Labor Day weekend used to signal the end to summer and the unofficial beginning of fall, with schools opening. But those days are long gone and by the time Labor Day hits now students have been in classes for two weeks or more.

    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.

        After Mitt Romney’s loss in the presidential race of 2012, the Republican National Committee carried out what it called an “autopsy” to determine how the party could produce better results in the future.
        Pardon me, but autopsies are for dead bodies, aren’t they? Well, if Republicans suspected they might be dead after 2012, what will they think if Trump goes down to the repudiating defeat he seems likely to reap?

  • We are no longer safe

      
        We have been treated to a spate of Muslim terrorist attacks and harassments aimed at Christians and Jews in the last few weeks. Last week, a Jewish Rabbi in France was stabbed by a man shouting “Allahu Akbar” during the attack. Last month, a French priest was murdered in his church, while conducting mass, by two knife-wilding Muslim unholy warriors.

    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.
