  • Trump made a good decision

        President Donald Trump made a wise decision when he decided to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. The deal that Barack Obama foolishly made with Iran did not hold Iran’s nuclear program in check. What it did was put a temporary hold on Iran’s nuclear program.

  • Israel murders Palestinians

        It was a disgusting spectacle last week in Jerusalem, where Israeli jets were killing Palestinian protesters even as Trump-supporting, “end times” so-called Christian pastors were “celebrating” the move of the U.S. Embassy to that contested city.
        No previous responsible president would ever make that decision, because they knew it would cause violence and death. At last count, more than 60 Palestinians were killed by Israel. It was said that you could hear the jets in the air as the crazy preachers spoke.

  • What Memorial Day is about

    By James F. Burns
    Retired professor
    University of Florida

        Sorrow so deep that it can be seen but not said.  “Strong men grasped each other’s hand, none able to express their sympathy to the bereft except by look.”  A tide of sorrow swept over the small village, a silence of sadness breached only by the occasional “outburst of anguish from some broken-hearted mother, wife, or friend.”

        President Boy Child has made the world a less safe place with his petty, vindictive decision to withdraw the United States from a deal with Iran that kept that country’s nuclear weapons program in check.
     Being the spoiled, whiny, narcissistic brat that he is, he pretended that his decision hadn’t been made until it was announced so he could draw maximum attention to himself. Whatever issue is before him, it’s not about the issue; it’s all about him.

  • Time to investigate the FBI

        The Mueller investigation has been churning on for a year now.
        Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian Government back in 2016. While he has indicted some people on unrelated charges dating from before their involvement with Donald Trump, Mueller has yet to produce any evidence of an offense by Trump, himself, that would be grounds for impeachment.
