Demand respect; yet treated like fools

Sheriff David Clarke, Ret.:

Six months ago I wrote about the liberal media masquerading as journalists to scam the American people down a rabbit hole with their contrived high noon drama-filled fake news scandals.  

I called attention to the reality that “only in the Washington D.C. bubble can high drama and theater be manufactured by a topic the media elites and establishment politicians have wet their pants over in excited delirium that the general population have become bored with for some time now.” They make effective use of propaganda to convince or should I say fool the public that what they are doing is important.

What do you want your child to be?

Dennis Prager:

Ask any young person -- even a young child -- “What do you want to be?” and just about everyone will answer, “a doctor,” “an engineer,” “a teacher,” “a firefighter,” “an airplane pilot” or a member of some other profession.

This is completely understandable.

But I have a suggestion that would change your child’s life -- and the world -- for the better. Tell your child to answer, “I want to be a good person.” This would completely change the way your child sees himself or herself.

We should take the time to vote

We should take the time to vote

Since I have been old enough to cast my ballot, back then it was 21, I have missed very few elections where I did not vote. Not only have I felt it a duty; I feel it is one of the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans.

Saturday is Election Day in Louisiana and LaSalle Parish, with voters having a lot of important decisions to make on who they want to serve them for the next four years. Races on the ballot range from governor and all statewide officers, to legislative races, sheriff, police jury races in nine wards, and four constitutional amendments.

The ballot is long and voters should go to the polling booth prepared. In this issue (on the front page) voters will find a listing of everything that will be on Saturday’s ballot. Also elsewhere in this issue, voters can also find sample ballots as they will appear on the voting machine.

Why founding fathers despised democracy

Jim Huntzinger:

Plato wrote in The Republic, “And so tyranny naturally arises out of democracy.

The Founding Fathers despised democracies.  They desired democratic principles, but not a democracy.  As Plato decrees above, a democracy can easily be commandeered to establish a totalitarian state.  The Founders inherently understand this, and wholly rejected forming a democracy.

Democrats are skeptical about the USMCA; they shouldn’t be

Congress will soon vote on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a landmark trade pact finalized by all three nations last November. This deal is a historic victory for workers. It would guarantee fairer pay through wage requirements, ensure safe working environments, and strengthen workers’ rights to unionize for better benefits.

Steve Sherman:

President Ronald Reagan and Donald J. Trump have many things in common. One is the idea that we need to be a strong nation and we secure peace through strength. The most recent actions by President Trump to hike up defense spending, after years of neglect, is a great step to make America’s defense even stronger.

The problem with pretending

Gil Gutknecht:

Let’s all pretend that our friends on the Left love our country as much as we do. Pretend that they really want a strong economy and more jobs, especially for women and minorities. That the last thing they want is a recession which would hurt millions of working families. We can imagine that secretly they are pleased that we finally have an American president who is standing up to Chinese trade abuses, a President who is actually fighting for our interests.
