Editorial: Remembering America’s heroes

 

Americans enjoy the greatest freedoms in the world because of those who died in defense of those freedoms. Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is when we recognize those who have died in military service. We celebrate it on May 29 this year. Waterloo, New York was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by […]

Editorial: Abortion and global warming?

 

Radical feminist Gloria Steinem believes the world is suffering from “global warming” because America dragged its feet in legalizing abortion. What? It’s true. This 83-year-old progressive thinks America and the planet are “overpopulated” because we have not let enough women kill their own babies before they are born. She said, “Listen, what causes climate deprivation […]

Editorial: More fake news in Oklahoma

 

Even though Oklahoma is predominately conservative, the mainstream media – including the liberal Tulsa World, the TV stations and most radio stations – jump at the chance to criticize common-sense situations.

The fact that Israel even exists is a miracle, and many believe, myself included, that […]

Recently, William Galston wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal entitled, “Trump’s Tanking Approval Numbers,” in which he points out the president is not only in trouble within the beltway, but with supporters who question his fitness for office. The “never Trumpers” and Democrats have done an excellent job in raising doubts in peoples’ […]

Liberal media leads the charge to criticize President Donald Trump

    

The level of corruption and mean-mouthed accusations spewing from those of the C/S persuasion has not in my lifetime reached such a low level in the United States. It seems that each day, those of that group in media and politics succeed in attaining a new cellar of outright lies and name-calling. The “journalists(?)” in […]

Snakes and helping those who are lost

    

For a couple of months, Titus the Honorable and I have been planning a big adventure. Of course, planning with a 3-year-old only takes about a minute. This last Saturday was our big day: Just Titus and me, heading off on a journey into the dark forest to look for snakes. Now, the dark forest […]
