Ah, dearly beloved, ‘tis no earthly pleasure can compare to the sweet caress of gentle enlightenment! But when ye write, use not vain repetitions, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking (with apologies to Matthew 6:7 and the KJV). Verily, we beseech thee to keep thy blithering succinct.
Yea, it doth seem that Donald J. Trump loveth America and God, probably in that order, yet there is one he surely loveth above … [more]

When someone is lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff and you know they’re lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff and you’re OK with them lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff, well, don’t expect a great outcome.
Hillary — maybe that’s “what happened.” Why didn’t the NFL players go to the White House while the first black POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama, was there for eight years? Could it be they knew he … [more]

Back in the late 1960s, Simon and Garfunkel sang the question, “What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson?” In 2017, that simple question is answered week after week, as the same ilky rabble of letter writers, merry contrarians all, stain these pages with their regressive nonsense.
Murderer. Killer. Socialist. Muslim. Mexican. Terrorist. There’s not much else in their tiny little lexicons, so they fill the gaps with endless quotes from the Christian Bible, or by quoting professional bible-thumpers … [more]

‘Scary’ final days
I am convinced that Barack Hussein Obama’s goal was to change America from Christian to (I won’t say what).
I heard years ago that “things” come into a country slowly, much of it in schools, to take over.

A talk given at Long Branch Plantation, Clarke County, Virginia, on February 9, 2003…

By Donald McRae, Friday 8 December 2017 13.26 EST
Like all people my age I find the passage of time so startling,” Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says with a quiet smile.
