Join the Wurzelbachers in Honoring Our Fallen Heroes

    Each year, on the last Monday in May, America celebrates Memorial Day. For some it represents the first day of summer and the end (or near-end) of another school year; there are cookouts to be had, parades to attend, and – for those who can afford them – vacations to head out on. For others, however, this day is spent in somber remembrance, honoring the | Read More »

    The Last Full Measure of Devotion

    Names like Gettysburg, Iwo Jima, and Arlington will forever be remembered as the final resting places for thousands of American heroes.  Those who gave the “last full measure of devotion” for their country truly are heroes– even better than the ones in comic books and fairytales, because these are the real kind.  Our soldiers are the foundation of what keeps America strong.  They and their | Read More »

    This Memorial Day

    You know I served in the military myself, US Army 3/502nd infantry to be exact, and I wanted to note on this Memorial Day the Brotherhood between Soldiers and Veterans. No where in life have I found such a Brotherhood, though perhaps I have not experienced enough living. Soldiers will go out of their way to save another soldier, history is replete with story after | Read More »

    Memorial Day, Billy Mack DeVine and America’s place in world history

    Loving the un-transformed America and those that died to preserve it My Great Uncle didn’t die fighting the Nazis so that one day We the People could be forced to buy health insurance that covers morning after pills or to empower a Secretary of Health and Human Services and 12-member panel of experts to decide the fate of those that survive morning after pills.

    This is Why People Hate Libertarians

    Politicians send troops abroad to die. Then they bestow fake honor on them at home. It’s called Memorial Day. Chances are EVERY member of Congress will be back in their district, pontificating and posing as a patriot, who values the sacrifice of the fallen. Yet… Last week an amendment to end legalized kidnapping failed in the House, 182-238. And so began a long,  detail-pregnant e-mail | Read More »

    Another Memorial Day.

    There’s not much I can contribute to the many flowery tributes to our fallen heroes that we saw and heard yesterday. There are just not enough superlatives. On this day that we set aside in remembrance of our war dead, I’m really gratified to see the huge amount of tribute and attention being given to our living military men and women… and their families. We | Read More »

    AIM: Russian TV and Code Pink Disrupt Memorial Day Activities

    Some Gave All

    Memorial day is the one day set aside in this country to remember those who have paid the ultimate price to keep this country free. It is the one day where their ultimate sacrifice is remembered and they are our heroes. I would like to introduce one such hero and allow him to be the face of this very important day. Ross A. McGinnis was | Read More »

    I Hate Weekend News Cycles.

    I guess that’s why most daily columnists don’t write on weekends. Our own research indicates about 1/3 of the readership on weekends. There’s not much going on as a rule, and much of what is out there is second and third tier reporting of last week’s stuff… so I usually save material for the weekends that I normally wouldn’t write about during the week. Recently, | Read More »

    We all stand together

    Last month, I was honored to visit our brave troops in Afghanistan, giving me a chance to get a firsthand look at the challenges they are facing, and to thank them on behalf of all Ohioans for their service to our country. I took a bunch of Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds baseball caps that were a big hit. Even though they are thousands of | Read More »
