  • Kasich to GOP: ‘Evolve, or die’

        As Americans gets ready to vote, much attention is being paid to what will happen to the beleaguered Republican Party afterward should the result actually be what facts suggest.
        For several weeks now, Donald Trump has looked as though he’s about to lead the national GOP over a cliff. His disgusting candidacy has shamed not only himself and his supporters, but has made America an extreme curiosity in the rest of the world.

  • Why I will vote for Trump

        Next Tuesday is the big day. American voters will go to the polls and cast their ballots. The frightening part of this election is that somebody is going to win.
        Back in 2012, I held my nose and voted for Mitt Romney. I did not like Mitt Romney, but I voted for him as the lesser of two evils. I felt that reelecting Barack Obama amounted to committing national suicide and Obama, in the last four years, has not disappointed me. His foreign policy, such as it is, has done immense damage.

  • A good step

        It’s obviously not built yet, but it’s certainly a move in the right direction.
        Last week, the town of Bedford’s Economic Development Authority announced it had entered into an exclusive arrangement with Dogwood Development Company to negotiate and plan the feasibility of the construction of a business-class hotel in the town of Bedford.
        This is the shot in the arm the town needed and a good next step as it seeks to build tourism in the area.

    Are you glad...

        Are you glad we have the 13th Amendment?  Thank a Republican!  This amendment abolished slavery with 100% Republican support and only 23% Democrats support.
        What about the 14th Amendment?  Once again the Republicans made it happen with 94% support whereas the Democrats were 100% against it. This amendment provided citizenship and equal rights for all.

  • Agriculture remains critically important in the commonwealth

  • A lack of competition in Obamacare hurts patients

    It’s a crazy system.” That’s what Bill Clinton had to say about Obamacare recently. It’s not often that we agree on something, but I feel the same way as President Clinton and so do the millions of Americans facing higher health care costs and reduced access as a result of this seriously flawed law.

     

  • Hillary doesn’t deserve the hatred

        In this presidential election year, one party’s nominee is plainly unqualified, immature despite advanced age, bigoted, explosive, and running as a “brilliant” businessman despite several bankruptcies and a history of mountainous debt.
        The other nominee is supremely qualified, with a proven track record of public service going back decades, devoted both to family and people at large, and has made history as the first woman chosen by a major party for president.

  • Our democracy’s death will be our own fault

        There has been a great deal of hyperventilating in British tabloids about Russia and Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. To see some of their stuff on the Internet, you would think World War III was about to start. Recently I was on a Trump vs Clinton Facebook debate and one person posted an article from one of these publications, I think it was the Dailey Mail, that had him convinced Russia is massing for an attack.
