After the election the media gleefully brought us stories of people who were fearful of what a President Trump might do. Many were afraid of being deported. Others lived in fear of hate crimes. They recited what they had been told to believe. Their words only emphasized America’s need for fear, respect, and trust. Threats of a Trump overreach show just how skewed the country’s values became under a sorry combination of Barack Obama and too much liberal lunacy.… Finish the story
Your government wants to do more than run your life. It wants you to have faith that it will do it better than you can. That means there is no reason to thank God for the things we need. All we have to do is pray to the government, which will give us what it thinks we should have whether we want it or not.… Finish the story
Barack Obama has something going for him that Donald Trump never will. He’s not a white guy.
Wetbacks? Race card is the only weapon left.
To his credit, Obama didn’t play the race card in his own defense. Others did it for him, including ex-president Jimmy Carter early in the president’s first term.1 Using race as a weapon is the sort of low blow politicians stoop to when pushing unpopular policy gets dicey.… Finish the story

Jail doesn’t pay very well, though if you are locked up your career is only part of your problem. There are better options.

Take a moment to ponder the hypocrisy of the angry demonstrators who think they lost something big last week. The Constitution and our free society honor their right to protest. They have the freedom to voice dissatisfaction after losing a completely legitimate election. What doesn’t make sense is why they would use this freedom to demand reforms that will make them slaves to government.… Finish the story
The hard sell is over. We bought into who we want, or at least who we think we want. The good news is that unity is the new buzzword and everyone wants to get along. The bad news is that this newfound togetherness doesn’t mean anything. It is just a prelude to more divisiveness. Our differences are always going to be worth more money than unity.… Finish the story
Why are we so vulnerable? We are becoming a nation of sitting ducks waiting to be plucked. Even if Americans are easy marks does that make saving us from ourselves a job for the Federal Government? We should be smart enough not to burn our hands on the stove.
Saving ourselves isn’t about terrorism, an international cyberattack, or catastrophic global warming.… Finish the story
