On Veterans Day we hear stories never before told

Many years ago there was a television show named Queen for a Day. It was on NBC so it was a channel we could watch in Great Bend. It featured one mother who would win a prize that was the equivalent of living like royalty. Mothers with names like Shirley, Gladys or Rita would be reduced to tears at the announcement they would receive something absurdly valuable in those days to a home maker, like a new clothes washer. The show was a ratings smash.

America Needs a Smart Infrastructure Program

With less than a week before the presidential election, attention in the nation's capital is turning slowly to what might be accomplished during the "lame duck" - that period when legislative business is conducted after the voting has done but before the new Congress is sworn in.

Don’t Encase Your Children in Bubble Wrap

I doubt that I would see eye-to-eye on any political topic with Leslie Kendall Dye, but we are muy simpatico when it comes to child-raising philosophy. Dye writes in the Washington Post that she's tired of busybodies warning that her daughter is about to be maimed.

Christmas Creep

A sign on the door at Starbucks advised that hours on Christmas Day will be 4:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Good to know-but 60 days in advance? Inside the Paso Robles, Calif. store coffee was being served in festive green cups, although outside it was 82 degrees on a sunny fall afternoon.

Americans Want a Different Foreign Policy

I have said throughout this presidential campaign that it doesn't matter much which candidate wins. Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are authoritarians and neither can be expected to roll back the leviathan state that destroys our civil liberties at home while destroying our economy and security with endless wars overseas.

Campaigns Hit Sour Notes

Win or lose, after Election Day it's safe to assume that one or both of the presidential candidates will be singing a different tune. Thank goodness for that.

Jefferson/Adams was the Clinton/Trump of It’s Day

Politics are such a torment that I would advise everyone I love not to mix with them.

Corruption is the Cornerstone of the Clinton Campaign

Reopening Hillary Clinton's FBI investigation isn't a political ploy, nor is it an "October Surprise." But it could be God's early Christmas gift to America.

ObamaCare Q&A for Dummies

Now that open enrollment is upon us and ObamaCare premiums are soaring through the roof (again), my email inbox is being flooded with questions from frustrated Americans. I'll do my best to provide answers that even a dummy could understand.

Give the Death Penalty to Drug Dealers Convicted of Murder

Democrats may not like building a wall to choke the flow of drugs into the country, but the blue state of Delaware is considering a get-tough policy for those whose products result in their victims' deaths.

Sorry Liberals, but Not Every Law Targets Minorities

Samantha Sunne had an authentically gritty New York City experience during a recent visit. She "spent four hours curled in a ball, balancing on a narrow wooden bench...trying to avoid the freezing cinderblock walls and the cold cement floor, splattered with cigarette butts and rotten food."

Hillary Clinton’s Problem

Hillary Clinton is probably going to win - and win big - on Election Night. But then she'll have to wake up on Nov. 9, and come to terms with the fact that an unfriendly Congress is going to spend the next four years tormenting her over her email scandal and the tangled web of relationships at the Clinton Foundation.
