Hateful haters hating hate

Someone please tell the radical left to stop getting their panties in a bundle and quit calling our president a Nazi. Donald Trump proved himself a great friend of freedom when he promoted equivalency between the organized hate movement and people disgusted by them. Anyone who hates haters is equally responsible for hateful hating. That is obvious.

Leftists have selective vision regarding Charlottesville

Leftists had a corporate autonomous sensory meridian response (brain orgasm) when one of the most racially divisive presidents in American history, Barack Obama, tweeted: "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion."

‘Draining the Swamp’ isn’t a part-time job

When the leftists at the Washington Post start offering relationship advice, a Republican knows he could be on the cusp of something big. A recent WaPost headline warned, "Trump's baffling attacks on McConnell could be costly to the president."

CEOs to Trump: You’re bad for business

It's not often - actually, it's never happened before - that a Republican president gets dissed and dumped by corporate titans like Dow, Merck, Campbell Soup, the Blackstone Group, 3M, Intel, Ernst & Young, JP Morgan Chase, Johnson & Johnson, General Motors, PepsiCo, and IBM.

Hey, computers, I’ll be back

I read an article the other day about jobs most likely to be replaced by robots and computers in the future. Oddly enough, near the top of that list were journalists, reporters and writers.

You can’t be an American and fly the Confederate Flag

OUTSIDE WINCHESTER, Va. -- We were driving up Interstate 81 last Sunday afternoon, the radio on, the sun setting into the hills, when we passed a tractor-trailer truck, and saw Old Glory proudly snapping in the strong wind behind the cab.

Thermonuclear chicken

Time to dig a bomb shelter. Stockpile some Kool- Aid. Nibble some Tootsie Rolls while catching a double feature at the drive-in. Pull out your pedal pushers and Hula-hoops. Stick a transistor radio in a front shirt pocket and twist yourself into the ground replicating the gyrations of Elvis. Presley, not Costello.

Colonial Williamsburg more important than ever

It's a rainy and humid afternoon in mid-August and General George Washington, commander of the Continental Army, and I are talking about what a new nation called the United States of America is going to do about the "peculiar institution" of slavery now that it's won its freedom from England.

Still waiting for Trump to tweet about mosque bombing

An improvised explosive device was thrown through the window of a mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota, while Muslim-Americans worshipped in the building. The attack occurred on Aug. 5.

GOP Leaders should welcome move to end Obamacare bailout

As the Trump administration moves closer to instructing the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to eliminate the Obama-era rule that bailed Congress out of paying its own Obamacare premiums, the pushback from congressional leadership has been ferocious. But if GOP leaders on the Hill think through the implications, they should see that it is actually in their strategic interests to welcome a move by President Trump to force them and their staff to live with the Obamacare law - until it can be changed.
