The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend

Trump is my Friend I do not know Donald Trump. Most people do not know him but everyone has an opinion of him. The President may not know himself very well. We cannot know how well he knows himself any more than most of us know ourselves. Remember who said The Enemy of My Enemy […]

‘Looks a Little Bit Like Plagiarism’

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 The one and only debate between the vice-presidential candidates took place on Wed. October 7.  The current political climate has degenerated into mindless contention and exaggerated emotion. Many who watched the debate were disappointed that the two candidates remained so calm during the debate. Even when the Vice President threw a […]

President Trump’s Dexamethasone

Dexamethasone is not like Hydroxychloroquine that caused such a freak-out when the President seemed to promote its use as a treatment or preventive against  Covid-19. Hydroxychloroquine is used to prevent and treat acute attacks of malaria. It’s use in Covid-19 is based on immunosuppressive  and antiautophagy properties that theoretically could benefit people with Covid-19. That’s […]

Constitution Day

Constitution Day in the United States has become a bit of an afterthought. The Constitution is who we are as a people. We should celebrate it, not Cristóbal Colón. Apple does not add Constitution Day to the calendar that pops up on iPhones.  A Google search of U.S. Holidays only shows the big ten U.S. […]

9/11 Should NOT be a National Holiday

House Judiciary Hearing of Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Attorney General William Barr is a patriot and strong advocate for the rule of law. His favorable place in History is assured, while his tormentors will be soon forgotten.  July 28, 2020 was such a day of mindless torment for Mr. Barr but he appeared amused by the committee’s antics and survived unscathed. TheHearing exposed […]

The 4th of July

Every year the 4th of July gives Americans the chance to think about our roots and hopefully show a little gratitude for the sacrifices that a lot of people made for us. Unfortunately gratitude is not a common virtue among a large segment of our ill-informed fellow citizens who do not even know who fought […]

Constitutional Authority Running Amok

The coronavirus pandemic has put the Constitution on full display.  The Federal government has power that is supposed to be relatively limited compared to the powers reserved to the states and to the people. The power to quarantine is clearly with the states, and with the people themselves should they chose to voluntarily isolate themselves. […]

Obituary of Thomas Jefferson

Occasionally we run across interesting articles that we would like to pass on.  On further refection we realize that what interests one person may not excite another.  But this time we will make an exception because we are very interested in Jefferson, and so should you. Barton Family Funeral Service is a family run funeral […]
