The continued war on terror

June 13, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

“Trump’s gonna get us into a war,” people say. We’re fighting one, and we’re not shooting in another, and unless a new enemy emerges, there’s no other war. We have two enemies, North Korea and Iran. Russia and China are rivals, but they don’t...

AH1100 – 1200 hours on 19 April 2017, a large number of Vietnam War veterans gathered in Artesia to commemorate the war. It was one of the most uncomfortable hours I have experienced. It was full of spin echoing the party line we heard from the government...

Slaughterhouses damage the earth

May 31, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Republicans should ditch the filibuster

May 31, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Most of my family and some of my friends are Democrats. They list to the left when they walk, and some are so radical it’s a miracle they can stand. They’re all thieves. The only thing they hate more than cutting taxes is getting rid of them, and they get...
