Recently, I was sitting in the waiting area of a famous medical facility in Phoenix, Arizona, and overheard two women discussing a recent debate between their candidates for the U.S. Senate, Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrstin Senima. These women were discussing things like which candidate was more persuasive, more forceful, seemed nicer and most sincere. In the end, their votes likely will center on personality.
I wanted to jump up and scream: “Don’t you realize that none of these things are important and the future of this country hangs in the balance!”
Sadly, most people still select their candidates the way a seven-year-old selects her Barbie Doll. The most attractive usually wins. When the candidates are equally attractive, or not at all attractive, it is about which one makes them feel more comfortable or would make the better friend.

It is laughable to suggest that Mexico should be the one to stop the caravans of migrant gatecrashers headed to the U.S. when we seem powerless to stop them ourselves. Get Serious! Mexico can’t seem to fix the potholes on the sidewalks of its major cities. Why should we expect this country to defend us?
It would be nice but it is a pipe dream, nothing more.
Cooperation is another story. We should expect, no insist, that Mexico cooperate with us as we attempt to corral these people and send them back to their countries of origin. The same cooperation should come from the other Central American countries that receive American largess. However, we should not expect any of these countries to do something we aren’t willing to do for ourselves. They simply do not have the manpower or resources that we do.

It is considered disrespectful to say anything bad about someone who is deceased. However, when the deceased punches back at an enemy from the dead, all bets are off.
We know that Senator McCain spent months planning every detail of his extended farewell and funeral services. These events were of the kind and duration normally reserved for heads-of-state. However, I would hope that the decision that was made to disinvite President Trump and Sarah Palin came from his family and not the senator himself.
McCain professed to be a Christian. Only the good Lord knows the truth of one’s conviction. It is not for me to judge. However, Jesus commanded us to forgive one another. In fact, the prayer that He taught us to pray says, “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” We are to “love our enemies.” Any sincere Christain knows that is not only difficult, it is next to impossible without the Lord’ help. It is something that I have struggled with, perhaps more than any other of His precepts.
With that in mind, I can only hope that if the senator really meant to strike out at his enemies from the grave, that desire passed before he went to his eternal resting place. Continue reading “McCain’s Funeral Punchback”
The United States, the leader of the free world, a proponent of freedom and democracy, almost signal-handedly pushed South Africa into what is becoming a communist failed state. Sure, we had help from other do-gooder countries who ganged up on this once jewel of the African continent, in the 1990’s. However, it never would have happened if we hadn’t led the charge.
It should be no surprise that President Cyril Ramaphosa recently confirmed that his government plans to expropriate private property without compensation. For the uninitiated this means taking the farms of white landowners and supposedly redistributing them to the black majority in the name of “fairness.” This will hasten the country’s economic slide that began shortly after the “universal” elections of 2004, that transferred power to the communist-led African National Congress.

Maxine Waters never loses an opportunity to urge her followers to keep up their harassment of members of the Trump Administration.
Last week, she took aim at the president again. “Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booted out of restaurants,” she crowed as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep!’”
She went on, “We’re going to win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions (she blames the attorney general for enforcing immigration law) and others, you really don’t know the Bible…God is on OUR Side! On the side of the children, on the side of what’s right!”
Waters has never been shy about using God, the church or little children to rabble rouse in order to increase her name recognition, her coffers or advance one of her pet projects, the latest being open borders. Continue reading “Saint Maxine”
When bigoted Stephanie Wilkinson asked Trump Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave her restaurant Friday it touched off a media feeding frenzy and, predictably, caused some political crazies to leave their filthy, hate-filled nests.
The most notable was Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) who went where no elected representative should ever be allowed to go. Continue reading “Bigoted Restauranteurs, Unhinged Politicians, and Facebook Rants”
A mother, who is a U.S. citizen, decides to break into a bank and is captured. Do you want her children sent to prison with her? Of course not. Prison is no place for a child.
