Buster goes for a drive

A local man, Buster Butts, is one of the hardest workers I know. He works at a computer most of the day which demands heavy use of his eyes. Until just lately, I considered Buster to be almost blind. In fact, the cataracts on his eyes were so bad, that Buster had to lean over and almost place his nose on the computer screen to see what he was doing.

Trump Camp’s Latest Move is to Bash Catholics

They told me not to overreact. Read new Donald Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon's comments "in context," they said. And, after all, Christine, you're an immigration lawyer, you have a tendency to blow these things out of proportion. Chill, lady. Go say a rosary, and call us in the morning.

The Right Lessons from Obamacare’s Meltdown

The decision of several major insurance companies to cut their losses and withdraw from the Obamacare exchanges, combined with the failure of 70 percent of Obamacare's health insurance "co-ops, " will leave one in six Obamacare enrollees with only one health insurance option. If Obamacare continues on its current track, most of America may resemble Pinal County, Arizona, where no one can obtain private health insurance. Those lucky enough to obtain insurance will face ever-increasing premiums and a declining choice of providers.

Why the Media is Biased Against Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton is "doing what they call in politics 'freezing pockets,'" Chris Cuomo -- son of the late New York governor -- explained on his CNN program, "because the donors are giving her money thinking she's gonna run. That means they're not gonna have available money for other candidates if she doesn't, and I don't think she's gonna give it to 'em."
