    Kindness is

        On Sunday, December 16, we were on our way to church when we came upon an accident that had just happened and stopped westbound traffic.

  • Getting out of Yemen

        Last week, the United States Senate took an important step toward ending America’s complicity in the tragic civil war in Yemen.

  • The steady drumbeat of corruption

        Recent events have given us yet another title for our miserable excuse for a president. In the court filings released by the Mueller probe, he is now “individual one.”
        That’s the same “individual one” who, according to corrupt lawyer Michael Cohen, directed illegal payments to two women to keep them silent about affairs with him as he ran for president.

  • Left-wing free-for-all

        It looks like a free-for-all is shaping up for the so called “Democratic” Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.
