  • Enforcing our laws to reduce illegal immigration

    If you were to take a drive along Interstate 8 in Arizona, many miles north of the border, you would very likely come upon signs, placed by the U.S. government, warning travelers of possible danger including drug and human smuggling, armed criminals, and other suspicious activities.  The signs, which have been placed by the Federal Bureau of Land Management throughout parts of Arizona, are evidence of the very serious and growing problem of illegal immigration. Unfortunately, the federal government has done little more to combat this problem than place these warning signs.

  • In memory of a good friend

    In 1951, 10 days before Christmas, three friends stood in front of Green’s Drug Store and shook hands for the last time. One of them, Bobby Daniels, never came home from Korea. His unit was overrun. A Marine said the Chinese got Bobby there.

        That December day, Bobby was wearing an Army uniform, Jack Karnes was in a paratrooper uniform and I was wearing an Air Force uniform.

  • Reining in the American empire

        Recent newspaper stories have highlighted the fact that military spending and the costs of the national security state can no longer go unchecked in light of the continuing economic troubles of our country.

  • Internationally famous

        Bedford is internationally famous. Or, should I say internationally infamous.

        I saw more news stories on the Stalin bust on Russian Internet news sites the Saturday before last. One begins, “, , ~,,f ,f ,ee,e -eOe e ',,e () < ,% e %,.” This reads, “Installation of a monument to Joseph Stalin on the grounds of the war memorial complex in the city of Bedford (USA) has caused a real scandal in American society.”

  • Benefits should be extended. Just don’t add to the deficit

    Congress was expected to pass a bill this week extending unemployment benefits to more than 2.5 million workers who had those benefits lapse in June.

        Extending those benefits — at a cost of about $34 billion — needed to be done, but there was a better way to pay for it.

    Parting from its raising

        I read with great interest your article entitled “Former Foundation board member concerned by Stalin bust” in last week’s edition of the Bedford Bulletin.
