    Cut the grass and the budget

        Well, it’s that time of year again; time for the highway department to cut the grass on the roadsides. I’ve seen several already. You probably have too. A guy on a tractor with one of those mechanical arms hooked to it and on the end of the arm is the mowing/cutting unit.

  • Working to repeal, defund and dismantle the new health care law

    Friday, March 23rd marks the two year anniversary of President Obama signing into law the disastrous government takeover of our health care system. Two years ago, as Congressional Democrats pushed the so-called health care reform through Congress, they assured the American people that health care costs would go down and that individuals would be able to keep their current health insurance if they liked it. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Demonizing health care reform

    The justices of the U.S. Supreme Court have taken up the issue of health care reform, specifically President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
        The constitutionality of the law, especially the “individual mandate” that requires everyone to buy health insurance, will be decided. The court has been hearing arguments since Monday.

  • The real atrocity

      
        I was wondering how long it would be before Rick Howell would write about the mass murder allegedly carried out by an American soldier in Afghanistan. His Liberal Agenda column in last week’s paper did not disappoint me. It was everything I expected it to be, right down to his drawing a parallel between this crime and the My Lai massacre in Vietnam.

  • Politicizing Trayvon

    It didn't take long.
        The tragic case of the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida last month has now become a political lightning rod. The case is no longer about justice, it's about rallying the troops, for whatever cause someone might support.
        The facts in the case no longer matter — it's all about the cause.
