Obeying the Law, So Help Me, God 0

Our Founding Fathers thought Freedom of Religion was so important they put it at the top of the Bill of Rights. As a proud Catholic woman, I know I’m glad those protections are there. I take no joy from Rowan County clerk Kim Davis (by the way, a registered Democrat) spending time in the Carter […]

THE RIGHT WING’S EMAIL FAIRY TALE 0

If you look up “kangaroo court” in the dictionary, you’ll find a big old picture of Rep. Trey Gowdy. Why? Because he is leading a one-man, partisan show trial of harassment against Hillary Clinton. And it’s high time someone called him out for it. Gowdy is the chairman of the so-called House Select Committee on […]

Circus Over Substance 0

The first presidential debate of 2016 is now in the books. It says something about the quality of the major Republican candidates that the best performance by far belonged to former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who wasn’t polling in the top 10 and didn’t make the main event.

Fox and 17 Friends Prepare to Debate 0

At least 17 Republicans are running for president. I believe the last time either major political party had that many candidates was the Democrats in 1976.

Right now, my Republican friends seem to be drawn to candidates who have extreme views and/or made a name in a field other than politics. And the biggest name at the moment is Donald Trump.
