It is sad what is going on in this country now, telling us what we can do and not do where we can go and where not to go. It is time for the people to step up and say enough is enough, cause if we let this go on they will keep trying to take control of are lives from now on.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the word "privilege." It’s the idea that one group of people, through no fault or doing of their own, has been dealt a better hand in life than other groups.

How did we get drawn into a culture war over something as simple as a mask, which should be a primary weapon in a war against coronavirus? There’s a lot we don’t know yet about COVID-19. But one of the basic pieces of scientific information available is that the virus is easily spread by mic…

I recently read an article regarding a man who was denied entrance to a business because he was not wearing a mask. He explained he had a medical condition and the mask made him him claustrophobic. He wasn't granted entrance and returned home. I do not know if he tried to sue business. Howev…

Jesus said, "O thee of little Faith." I think that a lot of us are falling into that category. What in God's are we doing? We have stood by and let God be condemned by evil people that has been destroying his scared name and now we are letting these terrible people put fear in our hearts and…

No one should be surprised that Donald Trump has so desperately fought to ensure that no one may read, "The Room Where It Happened" the blockbuster book authored by former Ambassador and National Security Adviser John Bolton, in which he tells us a great deal about the Trump presidency, much…

When I conjure up images of strength and courage it manifests like this: Amidst national protests and societal unrest spilling into the President’s Park in Lafayette Square, a blonde-haired, tanned-skin, makeup-wearing man hides inside the White House bunker, tweeting. Instead of addressing …
