• Atomic energy: Wake up

    In view of Japan’s atomic catastrophe, we must evaluate our own policies in regard to energy sources. When this radiation threat is considered along with similar incidents around the world, it is time to realize that we are in a position of “clear and present” danger, a danger that is greater than ever before because of its magnitude and proximity to a large population. Another incident could be on par with an atomic bomb.

  • Who won?

    During the latest national budget process the republicans received significant cuts in programs that would help the middle class and the working poor. The republicans also asked for and received their pledge to the rich that their taxes would not be increased now and in the future.

    Who won?

    We have allowed the top 2 percent of Americans to keep their money and not sacrifice their style of living to help keep America afloat. Republicans are rejoicing that they have saved America by cutting programs that add to the deficit.

  • British answer 04-08-2011

    In a recent edition, an ultra-liberal responded to my criticism of the British National Health Service (NHS).  She didn't contest the three victims I'd cited. Instead, she theorized that someone scoured the entire British Isles to find three aberrations in a near-utopian system.

    Between 1975-79, my parents, the war-hero couple the NHS killed by rationing, and the gall-bladder-diseased young mother the NHS almost killed, lived on the same block. The couple lived two doors from one side from my parents; the young mother, four doors from the other side.

  • The new America 04-01-2011

    The national and state Republican Party has been in favor of smaller government to save our country from massive deficit spending from the freewheeling Democrats during the past two years. What Republicans haven't told you is that the best way to achieve this goal is to subcontract work to the lowest bidder which may or may not be from America.

  • Who is in charge? 04-01-2011

    Who has the ultimate power in the United States of America? Who’s the boss? Is it the president, vice president, the Senate, the House, the Supreme Court, the EPA, the Speaker of the House? Think this over for a minute and decide on your answer. Maybe you think it’s the United Nations. If you think one of the above is correct, you are wrong on all accounts. The answer is We the People, the citizens of the United States.

  • Undistorted truths 04-01-2011

    The media news breeds confusion.

    It’s becoming such an illusion.

    It is a real shame,

    the far-left’s to blame,

    what they need is a Fox News transfusion.

  • The shape of things to come? 04-01-2011

  • Political bipartisanship 03-25-2011

    The representatives for our state and national governments do not have the fortitude to tackle the real problems facing our country today. They have dealt a death blow to working Americans by reducing our income at a time when we are unable to pay the bills and responsibilities of our great society.

  • Another way of looking at it 03-25-2011

    In a recent letter titled “Middle-class Americans are not imbeciles,” the writer asserts that the “Primary domestic policy goal” of the Obama administration is the “redistribution of wealth.” Well, I say, it’s about time!! It is not simply about class warfare or jealousy as the Tea Party would have you believe. It is about an economic system which ahs failed the vast majority of Americans by favoring the few.

  • God and me 03-25-2011

    For the past several years I have been having chats with God.

    The pool I frequent, with its retractable roof, makes a perfect outdoor cathedral. When the sun is just right, I even imagine now, then, that God gives a wink or two.

    We have discussed many things, trivial as well as profound matters.

    Lately things have hit an even more somber note.
