My Presidents vs Not My Presidents

Friday, August 18th, 2017

Share on Facebook Since people have a hard time understanding honor, let me offer this. Not all men are perfect. We know this. The question is simple: “Did they move America forward, or did they try to take it back?” I honor the men and women who made us a “more perfect union,” not the […]

Not My President?

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Share on Facebook No, I do not use that phrase.  I do understand why some might.  Donald has done nothing to reach out beyond his own supporters.  Instead he does the opposite, going out of his way to sow the seeds of discord throughout our society.  His lying words about Mexicans and Muslims make my […]
