Is money the root of all evil

on January 22, 2013, 5:40 PM / in Opinion

Not even close. For every individual who […]

Stop Comparing Obama to Lincoln!

on January 21, 2013, 8:29 AM / in Opinion

Can the reason be any more obvious?  Every time I hear these two names used in the same sentence, I cringe. Some time ago, Obama compared himself to Martin Luther King, Jr.  And before that, he compared himself to John F. Kennedy.  Maybe it’s just me, but I find comparing oneself to three famous figures in American history who were […]

The other day, someone at a store in our town read that a Methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farmhouse in the adjoining county and he asked an elderly man (50+) in the store a rhetorical question, ”Why didn’t we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?” He replied, “I had a drug problem […]

Gun Control is an English Problem

Gun Control is an English Problem

on January 2, 2013, 10:14 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

If this phrase “gun control” were applied to anything else, e.g. “car control”, “computer control”, “speech control”, “pen control”, it would be at least laughable, if not downright objectionable. I would prefer to use the phrase “victim disarmament”, because that is what the end result of gun control truly is. My rants against gun control are intended for two groups […]

ADOPTED, NOT ABORTED

on December 31, 2012, 7:04 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

by Maria Keller “Adoption, not abortion” is a sign often seen at abortuary pickets. Do we, as prolifers, understand adoption? Are we aware of all that pro-abortionists are doing to undermine the institution of adoption? In its most simplistic sense, adoption is the process whereby a couple (or single person) agree to take and raise a child who is not […]
