Let’s not be too quick to take in refugees

Wise Thoughts from Former UN Secretary John Bolton John Bolton, our UN Ambassador under George W. Bush had some good thoughts on the wave of migrants fleeing civil war in Syria and other terrorist hotspots in the Middle East and Africa.

The Day 5 People’s Opinions Changed a Nation Forever

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court announced its 5-4 decision to make same-sex marriage the law of the land. Never mind that laws are supposed to be written in Congress and voted on by men and women elected to represent the views of their constituents. Never mind that the Supreme Court justices are […]

Imperfect Citizens of the Kingdom

When being Smart Makes You Stupid

I appreciate smart people! My husband is smart about a lot of things, including directions. In our 28 years of marriage, he has gotten lost all of three times.
