    • Free because of a Free Press

      This month’s article may seem somewhat redundant to some of the articles in the past. We will once again trumpet the need for a free and vibrant press and our fears that the current occupant of the White House wishes to do away with an unfettered First Amendment. We fear that our message will run stale, as will the constant need for the national press to point out the faux pa ...

    • Nothing’s True, Believe Me!

      By now, anybody with eyes, ears and an open mind realizes that the 2016 Presidential Election was greatly influenced by the Russians. No one will ever know whether that influence caused the defeat of Hillary Clinton and the election of Donald Trump. It cannot be known and is subject to conjecture on both sides.

    • Hey Honey, Check Out My Pendulum!

      The nature of a pendulum is that it swings back and forth. It has been used many times as a metaphor for politics, religion, for interpersonal relationships, and virtually any idea or standard. The problem with the pendulum is that inherent fight to be in the middle causes it to swing in the opposite direction, so that it rarely stays in the middle.

  • Broken Dreams

    … be put together again. That is not to say that it will end or be destroyed. Rather, it is to say what we and the world view the America as being, will never be viewed the same way again. How could it be? Americans allowed Donald Trump to be President and swarms of people still support this lunacy. …

  • Not the New Normal

    … incompetence, his bravado, his lack of focus and his being consumed with himself. It is really eye opening how much Donald Trump did not and does not understand how Government works. This could really explain his mantra during the campaign “Drain the Swamp”. Based upon his demanding of loyalty from FBI Director Comey to his requesting of intelligence…

  • Excluded by Religious Belief

    … Most of the time we speak on the First Amendment as it relates to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression, or delve into the political world. We talk about upcoming elections or the results of the last one, and news about what could have been, what should have been, or the horrors of what is. Very rarely do we speak on the First Amendment…

  • The Liar in Chief

    … to law enforcement who are conducting an investigation. Our President, Donald Trump, seems to have a penchant for lying. His representatives, trying to cover for his lies, such as Shawn Spicer, also seem to make lying on a daily basis part of the job description.

  • Trumps FAKE premise

    … that chose to make the comparison, showed that the Obama Inaugurations were attended by many more people than was Trumps. The use of photographs and Washington D.C. Metro riderships clearly showed that the attendance at the Trump inauguration fell far below that of Obama’s. Yet, Press Secretary Spicer, during his first press briefing, categorically…

    …, freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom of expression and freedom to disagree. So when many talk about how un-American and how offensive it is to not stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, nothing could be more un-American than their criticism. If that flag stands for anything, it stands for the right of someone not to pledge allegiance…

  • American Press not Trump’s Pravda

    … Over the many years that we have been writing this article, when election time comes we normally have at least one, if not several articles written about how our elections are dependent upon the First Amendment. We usually muse that because of the First Amendment politicians are free to say what they want, whether true…

  • Anchorman 3, may the truth be with you

    … We were sitting at a political luncheon a month or so ago, when one of the people at our table started to complain about all the untruths that are disseminated on Fox News. Her position was that before things got on the news, they had to be checked for accuracy and only if they were accurate could they be broadcast to the public. We pointed out…
