Opinions

     Over the years I have recalled statements which my father made in way of direction for my life.  One of these was: “Treat the cause, not the symptom”.  If one would examine the issues which face us today in this country, or in the world, we will find that many efforts are being implemented to...
Fellow Americans, President Trump is under attack for wanting to keep our country safe by securing our borders.  He is accused of being a heartless racist because he wants to keep disease, drugs, weapons, terrorists, and gang members out of America.  In my opinion, President Trump should be...
Fellow Americans, In a few weeks we will have the duty and privilege of voting in one of the most significant mid-term elections in U.S. history.  Since the direction of our nation will be decided by this vote, now is the time to pick your side. On the left are the Democrats.  According to their...
Fellow Americans, In the September 11, 2018 edition of the Caldwell County News, I read an interesting article by M. D. Graham, in which he stated President Trump should stop blaming the past administration and start focusing on his own.  Ordinarily I would agree, but this is not an ordinary...
I’d like to point out a few things to our frequent letter writer, Mr. Landi—in particular, in response to his letter in the August 28th edition. Clearly, our Kidder friend buys into nothing but the extreme right-wing views that pour out to support our President.  Trump loves nothing more than...

Fellow Americans, Lately there has been a lot of talk about “white privilege.”  To some people that term refers to the preferential treatment of white people over black people by our government.  To others it refers to income inequality between races or classes of people.  Either way, I believe...
Forget about the threat of socialism or even communism; the real threat comes from those who want to foist Idiocracy down our throats. Merriam-Webster defines Idiocracy as “a form of government in which a country or territory is run by fools.” And, the madness of anti-government protests that have...
