    Give Trump a chance

        In a column two weeks ago called “Liberal Agenda” the writer expressed an infatuation for Hillary Clinton that a great wave of middle-class, tax-paying voters in our democratic country did not agree with.

    Source of
    comfort

        As a new resident in Bedford County, I have taken note of the significant number of young people that have lost their lives in auto accidents. As a parent that has lost a child, I would like to share a source of comfort, especially during this time of year. (My youngest son was an Iraq War veteran - a victim of PTSD)

  • Donald trumps Hillary on peace

        Next year, after he is sworn in, I hope Donald Trump keeps his promise to put the brakes on tensions between the United States and Russia.
        The only one benefiting from the current level of tension is Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Barack Obama has provided him with a convenient bogeyman. With our current community organizer in chief in charge, the United States provides what Vladimir Vladimirovich’s domestic political theater needs — a foreign threat that is actually no threat at all.

  • Let it go

        Some just aren’t willing to let it go.
        Though Donald Trump easily won the needed votes to cruise to an Electoral College victory for president, many of the liberal elite and those within the national media are now pushing for recounts and even an overturn of the Electoral College system.
        Anything to keep the pot stirred up and try to delegitimize Trump’s victory.
        It’s quite a turn of events.

    Stupid people?

        I am not a bit amused to be called stupid for voting for Donald Trump.

  • Let’s give thanks for our democracy

        Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, a day that should include, along with eating so much that we lapse into a coma after dinner, an attitude of thanks for what we have and the good things that have happened over the year.

    A good hire

        I was reading this week’s newspaper, and on the front page was a story about a policeman named Chevon Thompson.
        I had the pleasure of meeting him at the YMCA about a month ago. He was working out in the weight room. And I said to myself, man that’s a big fellow. After watching him for a little while working out, I finally asked him which football team he played for.
