I searched my yard, flowerbed, and shrubs for 20 minutes this morning, looking for my Gazette. As I was going back in to call circulation, I spotted my Gazette in the last place I expected -- on my porch.
The difference in Syria and Israel is the fact that Israel kills terrorists while Syria kills armed rebels and their supporters. By the way, that is a huge difference.
When I grew up several decades ago most people who had guns were actually hunters and those were mostly shotguns. There were few gun deaths or gun violence. Now that we have handguns and assault rifles for all the gun violence and deaths have exploded.
I love how the people blaming Bush for 9/11 either conveniently forget or aren't smart enough to know it was their very own beloved Bill Clinton who chose not to get bin Laden when he had the chance.
I admire Tim Tebow because of his morals and Christian lifestyle. We certainly don't have anything to admire with many of these thug athletes. What kind of role model would you want your sons and grandsons to have?
If you really want to know why the Republicans and NRA hate President Obama just consider that the new president of the NRA refers to the Civil War as the War of Northern Aggression.
The unemployment numbers are at a four-year low because there are fewer people in the workforce. Those unemployed over a year are no longer figured into the equations. Fewer people working. It takes fewer new hires to bump the percentages up. Things aren't getting better.
The moral state of the Republican Party was summed up last week when South Carolina's Mark Sanford, who cheated on his wife while governor and who is running for Congress,interviewed several women on the street who said that they would vote for him because of what he stands for.
Don't the people screaming for a raise in minimum wage realize what that would do to the economy and unemployment numbers? Employers would cut back on workers and prices would go even higher than they already are.
Jay Rockefeller taught me never to vote for a Democrat at the state level. Bill Clinton taught me never to vote for a Democrat at the national level.
99 percent of the Republicans I know are only conservative about helping and caring about others. But they are liberal when it comes to morals and self-indulgent behaviors. For Republicans to refer to themselves as conservative is ridiculous.
The anti-gun nuts are going to turn a lot of states into Republican supermajorities in the next election. That will be a disaster for education and health care.
If the U.S. doesn't want Syria's chemical weapons falling into the hands of al-Qaeda, then we should stop backing the al-Qaeda-backed rebels there, and instead help Assad regain control of his country.
