Since the county conventions are tomorrow, I’d like anybody else’s views on who | Read More »

In his time, the Democrats controlled the House and also | Read More »

Last century the Ku Klux Klan sponsored domestic terrorism and it recruited its members from mainly Christian churches. Our country dealt with this quaisi-Christian threat without going all anti-Christian; we can do the same thing with the quaisi-Muslim threat we face this century. First step is | Read More »
