This week the lunatic fringe of the Republican Party, which includes Rep. Michelle Fischbach, Kevin McCarthy and the entire Republican Congressional delegation, declared open war on Social Security payments to American retirees and senior citizens. They aren’t going to allow Congress to pay its...
I think it’s worth noting some of the good things that happened in 2022. Here’s a short list. First off, Sean Hannity finally admitted he was lying about the 2020 election. In a sworn deposition the Fox News host, and Trump amigo, admitted he always knew that the election wasn’t stolen. Way to go...
I recently, watched “The Chosen” series on Netflix. It’s the story of Jesus, as a young man and carpenter, as he began to reveal himself, to the world as The Messiah. As I watched him gather his flock of followers and students and perform miracles, I was overwhelmed by the pure beauty and...

I started having these thoughts last summer when I was with my family at Lake Charlotte Beach Park. We’d all had a nice...
Our founding fathers envisioned a well-informed electorate, who would elect upright citizens who shared their views, values, and principles, who, when elected by the majority of the people, would then represent those values and principles as legislators, for a short period, in our federal...
 Tim Kings column in the Nov. 9 Leader, makes me wonder, just what it will take, or if it will even be possible, to wake the useful idiots up. Our government has become totally corrupted and teetering on the edge of collapsing into an authoritarian communist style abyss, and he only worries about...
Last week I took my friend Francisco to City Hall to cast his ballot. I live in Leslie township and had already voted but Francisco doesn’t speak English. He values his right to vote as an American citizen and he wanted to make sure he understood his ballot.With all the talk about intimidating...
