Trump’s tweets are refreshing, truthful

I welcome Trumps daily tweets, it’s refreshing to get truthful news every day. This is a truly transparent president who loves America and all people. Most of the liberal media spread misleading information and negative opinions. The negativism about our president is appalling. The media spreads false information about the Russian involvement, his sanity, his health and any other stories […]

We don’t care about you

I wish that they would stop reporting school shooting as if people care about children being slaughtered at school. We don’t. And it’s an insult to pretend we do. When we allow a 17-year-old to buy a rifle then we don’t care more about gun manufacturer’s profits that we care about the lives of our children. And since we’re clearly […]

Ban military weapons

As Floridians continue to grapple with the massacres at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, our state is mourning yet another mass shooting, this time at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County. At least 17 people have died, while many others have been injured. Our thoughts are with the Parkland community and those […]

Atone when you forget your leftovers

 We had finished our meal when the waiter asked if we wanted a carryout box or to-go cup. We accepted the offer and carefully placed half a Cuban sandwich into the styrofoam box. Mmm. Mmmm. Leftovers are certainly the reward of dietary restraint when the food is good. At the least, they make for a great lunch the next day. […]

Amnesty will increase immigration

Should immigration serve the host country and its citizens or should it serve foreign countries and their citizens? The United States is no longer a frontier with a need for people to fill the void. Should immigrants fill empty jobs or take jobs from citizens? Our government has allowed immigration to explode, changing the character of our country for the […]

The diet of Lent

February 14th marks the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, when Christians abstain from animal foods in remembrance of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the wilderness. The call to abstain from eating animals is as current as the teaching of evangelical leader Franklin Graham, yet as traditional as the Bible (Genesis 1:29). Methodist founder John Wesley, Salvation […]

To Benefit Big Money, science is discredited

In this Tennessen’s view, it’s absurd for people to be writing to offer their opinion about climate. I have done so in the past, and that was a mistake. I am no scientist. I would ask those opining on climate change, “What training do you have in this area?” Climate science is a “science” just like any other, requiring extensive […]
