  • Growing an economy that works

    Pencils, notebooks, backpacks, calculators – all of the essentials for heading back to school. You probably wouldn’t send your child to the first day of school without going over the check list and making sure they had everything they needed for a successful year. Likewise, when they finish school and head out on their own, you’ll want to be certain that they have the benefit of a strong economy.

  • Exploring the roots of ‘Trumpism’

        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.

    God was
    with him

        Praise The Lord – Prayers were answered. I prayed all day for God to put Timothy where people could see him, others prayed too. Thank God for He did just that.

  • A better way for tax reform

    When it comes to the current tax system, the list of complaints is far from short – you can probably tick off a few right now. From the lengthy, overly complex tax code to the arcane, bureaucratic operations of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the United States is in need of a new system. There is a better way for tax reform, and it starts with focusing on a tax code and IRS that works for us, not against us. We need a tax code that we can understand and an IRS that taxpayers can actually trust.


  • Republicans begin to abandon Trump

        As Republicans across the country watch, in horror, the train wreck that is Donald Trump’s campaign, many are no doubt having an existential moment that can only be expressed as, “My God, my God, what have we done?”
            Indeed. His nomination is a looming disaster unprecedented in modern politics. Nearly each day, he proves again that he is not fit in any way to be president of this country.

  • Hillary’s chance to prove her manhood?

        China is still seething with bellicosity following a decision by the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague that ruled against China’s claims in the South China Sea. This court arbitrates conflicts between countries under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. Both China and the Philippines, which filed a complaint with this court, are signatories to this treaty.
