Destroying Everything Obama

October 17, 2017

The 2016 election showed the great divide that exists in our nation, and many voters for President Trump expressed how they felt about former President Barack Obama. I get that Obama’s Administration made more use of power of government to impact people’s lives than past presidents. I get that many folks don’t want assistance and […]

I recently watched U.S. Representative Steve Scalise describe his horrific experience after the June 14 shooting at the baseball field near Washington D.C. His recovery is miraculous, thanks in part to the excellent health care he has as a government official. And then we watch U.S. Senator John McCain, who is struggling with cancer, fight […]

Riakos Adams of the Killeen, Texas NAACP, has decided that the name attached to Fort Hood “doesn’t make any sense.” General John Bell Hood led his Confederate soldiers into battle at Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg and […]

Stop Gerrymandering

We applaud the League of Women Voters for its effort to curtail gerrymandering in the nation ahead of the 2020 census, and I wish that this non-partisan group luck in its endeavor. Colorado will ballot on ending gerrymandering in 2018. For too long the redistricting of Missouri’s congressional districts and state legislative districts have fallen […]
