When I was about 10 years old, my father told me that living in a community comes with responsibilities. It is the responsibility of every person to give a little of themselves for the benefit of others, he said. Some people fundraise for the school, others plan events or take the time to br… Read Article

It is obvious that if conservatives were only as brilliant as liberals, we would quickly embrace the joys of socialism. We would put our trust in ever-growing government bureaucracy, happily working toward that glorious utopia where individuals need no longer make any decisions for themselve… Read Article

Just a note to assure your readers that I do indeed talk to Democrats. I also listen to news. I even read on special occasions, sometimes publications without pictures.

Perhaps their art could be put out for sale, a room or two dedicated to the building’s history, or sculptures placed on the grounds nearby. I’d send a check to help support… Read Article

I absolutely despise the polarization of politics in America today. Those responsible for this nasty dichotomy need to step back and reflect on how this ever-widening rift affects the lives of all Americans, young and old alike.

President Trump, true to his tweets, appears to be on a record pace in creating jobs: good-paying positions with ample travel opportunities, health benefits and freedom to redecorate one’s office. The downside is the requirement to relocate to D.C. on a “temp” basis. Read Article
