OK, the sheriff told me he was a Constitutionalist but yet he allows his deputies to enforce unconstitutional laws. But, hey, maybe he doesn't understand the whole concept of due process. But wait a minute. Isn't it his duty to understand what he has sworn an oath to uphold?

Our tax code should be simplified. "Experts" have been saying taxes must be reduced to equal revenue, and then some, to deal with our trillion dollar debt. They are also saying we must reduce all expenditure by $40 billion, $6 billion, etc., and the way to accomplish this is to cut all expenditures as compared to previous expenses (both state and federal) by eliminating redundancies, duplications, and overlap. This is "water over the dam" and only prolongs the problem and increases time and effort expended, both direct and indirect.

No couple in America stirs emotions like Bill and Hillary Clinton, so when she showed up at an Iowa political festival acting more and more like a presidential candidate, it caused quite a flap among those who have begun such movements as "Ready For Hillary," and also among those who'd rather see anybody than her become president. But it proved one thing: that even after decades in the spotlight of the political arena, she still commands attention.
WASHINGTON -- We want to move out. We want to own our home. We want to marry. We want to work.
Hot, hot, hot! We're on the second day of 99 degrees-plus-the-heat-index weather. I'm on my wide front porch on the shady side of the house with a woven Palmetto frond fan in my hand. Back and forth, waving steadily. It helps a little -- fanning my sweat glistened cheeks and neck. The ladies a century ago would have said they were "glowing." They used these fans too -- in fact my older friend bought dozens of them for her daughter's summer wedding at Salem Black River Presbyterian years ago -- before they put in air conditioning. She gave me this ...
