  • Tidbits paint true picture of country

    My mother used to say, “No news means good news.” I have learned those words were not words of wisdom. No news means you are not aware of any bad news, which in turn means you are not living in the real world.
    As I listen to local and world news of late I have learned that most everyone’s frame of mind is affected by money or lack of it.
    Following are some of the tidbits that have caught my attention:

  • Americans have difficulty distinguishing what’s a lie

    The last true remnant of freedom in this United States is our right to vote. We send our fellow residents to faraway countries to die on the battlefield to stop the enemies of this republic, who would deny that right.
    We spend billions to support local, state and national governments that we trust will defend that right. Neighbors fall out with neighbors as the result of exercising that right. Cultural differences very often determine how we will execute that right.
