Biggest problem facing the U.S.A.

Article Image Alt Text

The Country Editor

There are a lot of problems facing our country right now, but none as big as our federal spending and our national debt.

A writer for TownHall.com, Donald Lambro, has released a column on the national debt and what is being done about it. I think our readers will find it interesting. Lambro wrote:

“Americans suck, vote for us!”

Kurt Schlichter:

The Democrats’ 2020 theme is that you are terrible and the party’s slogan will be “Americans suck, vote for us.” The precise candidate who will employ it is not important because they all embrace the notion that punishing the essential moral failure of you and me and every other Normal American is the key goal of the Donkey Party.

Everything I don’t like is racist

Derek Hunter:

There is a new trend in politics that’s a hit with all the kids. It’s been around for a while, but was never really as popular as it is right now. So, in the interest of science, I’ve decided to hop on “The Squad” train and try thinking like a progressive member of Congress. How hard could it be?

I was driving to the grocery store the other day and the person in the left turn lane ahead of me did not turn when there was clearly enough room for him to go. I sat there, angry, and then I asked myself, “What would Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez do?” Then it all came together.

The arrogance and the ignorance

Derek Hunter:

Separately, arrogance and ignorance are some of humanity’s worst traits. Together, when coupled with power, they achieve “weapon-grade stupid” status.

This is the marinade of the “gang of four,” the “progressive” Congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar –  who I’d accuse of having exponentially more social media followers than accomplishments, but it’s impossible to multiply by zero. This week we witnessed why those two traits together are such a problem for Democrats, and it was hilarious.

Identity politics devours itself

Michael Brown:

There is a biblical principle that everything produces after its own kind. Cats produce cats. Dogs produce dogs. Apple trees produce apples. Orange trees produce oranges. Love produces love. Hate produces hate. What does identity politics produce?

It produces bigotry. It produces division. It produces a victim mentality.

I don’t do Facebook. My wife does, and from time to time, she will share something she thinks I might be interested in.

Last week, she shared a post about sales tax collections hitting an all-time high in LaSalle Parish, as reported in The Jena Times last week.

Kurt Schlichter: Doubling down on hating America

You gotta hand it to them – it’s an innovative strategy to run for President by taking the position that your country is garbage and that its are people deplorable monsters. It’ll be interesting to see how the Democrats fare on their “America sucks!” platform. The last week has seen Team Donkey take brave stands against the flag and celebrating our military, and you would half expect them to next advocate something insanely suicidal, like taking your health insurance or forcing you to pay for illegal aliens’ doctors.  

Oh wait, that happened too.

Who are these lunatics? Do they really think this is going to play in America as well as it does in Chicago, Manhattan and Scat Francisco?

Life was different back in those days

Article Image Alt Text

Had my mother lived, she would have turned 110 on her last birthday. Many years ago when God was looking for volunteers to come home a bit early, Mother must have raised her hand because she died. I still miss her.

But you know as I think about my mom and how things were when she was a little girl, I sometimes wonder how folks made it.

For those of you out there under 60, life was a tad bit more difficult when my mother was a girl. The truth is we’re all more than a little spoiled.

Most students know how exciting the last day of school is. Well, it hasn’t always held the elation of “school’s out” for the children way back then.

Free everything being promised

Terry Paulson:

After two nights of watching the Democrat candidates debate, it’s almost comical if it were not so sad how Democratic candidates are doing everything they can to outspend their opponents with your money. It’s a frenzy of entitlement promises. It’s “free everything” paid by the tax-paying Americans who work hard to earn and keep as much of their paycheck as possible. At least New York Mayor Bill de Blasio candidly admitted their plans for your money, “There is plenty of money in this world, and there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands. Democrats have to fix that.”
