Congress: Work together! There'll be plenty of time to fight later.
Dr. Tom Barrett
It’s no wonder that Congress consistently has among the lowest Approval rates and the highest Disapprovals rates among all the organizations and individuals rated by the American people. They act like little kids.

The  “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act’’ bill, or the ‘‘CARES Act,” proved that Congress only seems to care about getting billions for wasteful projects designed to guarantee their own re-election.

When he was asked by a Politico editor if he has said the Democrats were loading down the bill with “pork” that had nothing to do with the national emergency, Senator Tom Cotton said “This report is correct. Pelosi & Schumer are willing to risk your life, your job, and your retirement savings for a radical, left-wing wish list that has nothing to do with this virus. Disgraceful.” Read more...
Have You Ever Heard of "President Years"?
Dr. Tom Barrett
We've all heard of "Dog Years," which are 7 human years for every dog year. So if your dog is nine years old, he qualifies for senior discounts at movie theatres and restaurants.

The presidency has taken a tremendous toll on every man who has held the office in the last century. In the early days of our nation, the president could take a walk and chat with the people on the street. Folks could knock on the door of the White House, and if the president wasn't busy he might invite them to come and "set a spell." These presidents didn't live with the constant specter of nuclear annihilation, chemical or biological attacks that could kill millions, or insane Islamists crashing planes into buildings in New York and Washington, DC.

Special Commentary
There is hope that comforts far more than numbers and fear.
Paul Hayden
“Let not your heart be troubled…” (Jesus)

First of all, thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have been affected directly or indirectly by this coronavirus epidemic, especially the victims themselves, as well as their caregivers and the medical personnel dealing with it all.

Something that I would like to encourage is perspective. Try to rise above hype and fear, and keep your eyes on the bigger picture. Along with that, be safe and practice proper cleanliness and health routines. Keep hope alive.

There is always something you can do.
Ed Delph
We sure we could all use a smile right now. Many of you out there are stressed, and maybe feeling like there is nothing you can do. But even when you feel like there is nothing you can do, you can do something. That something is impressive, powerful, and quietly produces results when and where nothing else can or will.

In the times before Jesus started His ministry, the Jewish people in that time must have felt there's nothing they could do. The Romans are ruling, the taxes are high, we are weak, and our religion has been reduced to rules and regulations. Then Jesus comes along, just in time, to show them what to do when there's nothing you can do. And Jesus modeled it throughout his whole ministry. Let me explain.  Read more...
Drawbacks of wearing a HAZMAT suit.
Bob McCray
During the ongoing Chinese Coronavirus COVID-19 crisis, we need to thank the heroes who are coming to everyone’s aid. They are the doctors, nurses, health care workers, law enforcement, and the National Guard who are dealing with the public on a face-to-face basis. Plus, the research lab workers who are searching for a cure and those in the testing labs who have to analyze patients' biological samples to detect the virus. All of these people are literally risking their lives as well as their families’ health; without them, there would be no way to stop any contagious virus or disease that strikes the population.  Read more...
The American people face a deadly and silent enemy, but with grit and tenacity will prevail, with the grace of God.
Bob Pascarella
When did it actually happen and what was the genesis of the change? Were there any signs, did anyone observe, speak or write about it? Is the way it used to be, gone forever? What I am speaking about is the American, you know the one who lived through crisis after crisis, and faced adversity with steadfast strength and courage. The men and women who lived through the Great Depression, and World Wars, the Greatest Generation - where are they? I look around and don’t see them anymore.  Read more...

The premise for this article is not outrageous and readers who ridicule the possibility of my headline must get their mail at the nearest cave if they think no “civilized” nation would be so barbarous. And they have no knowledge of recent history. My premise is that China may have plans to destroy most of America’s citizens and repopulate our cities with loyal Chinese nationals. That may appear to be irresponsible, impossible, and inaccurate, but there is too much at stake to dismiss, denigrate, or deny any possibility out of hand.  Read more...
Comparative Numbers, and What They Mean
Paul Hayden
I bring this discussion about COVID-19 back around to one of the hottest debated topics of our time – abortion. This is critically important to me. Some might say this is not the time to discuss abortion - that is a politicization of the issue. When might be a better time to discuss it? That is what this whole disruption of our country and the world is all about right now, isn't it? So we can "save lives," right?
