Why do liberals annoy me?

What if?

Doctor, My Eyes!

A scenario in the Biden-Harris America, or should I say Harris-Biden America because Pelosi and her gang will have Joe declared incompetent after the first six months and Harris and Pelosi will rule the country. Okay, let’s look at a scenario under their America. You and your lovely wife ...

Slaughter of innocents

Letters

Rarely in history has a government been responsible for killing more than 10 million of its own people. Hitler, Stalin, Mao are a few who carried out a slaughter of such magnitude. Yet here in America, the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 to legalize abortion has resulted in the ...

For all the letter writers who stump for former VP Biden, believing if he is elected that a Socialist utopia will spring up in America, think again. If you believe his election success will translate into a larger welfare check, more food stamps, free college, free health care, etc. maybe you ...

The radical war on America

A man with a plan

Letters

Joe Biden says that Trump doesn’t have a clue about COVID-19, but that he has a plan. Then he goes on to say that “we’re all in this together.” So maybe Joe should share his plan with Trump now, so Trump can start saving lives. How many people are going to die between now and January ...
