Political Correctness Zero Tolerance and the Death of Reason

on January 20, 2013, 9:28 AM / in Local News, National News, News

My first exposure to political correctness, though I didn’t know it at the time, was in the early Eighties when a co-worker told me of a friend who designed video […]

Form Letter from Congressman Fincher

on January 18, 2013, 10:37 AM / in Local News, National News, News, Opinion
