I don’t get it. You don’t have money to feed your kids breakfast and lunch during the school year. You don’t have money to pay for their meals during summer vacation. However, I see you in line buying fireworks. You all of a sudden have money for that?


Your demanding your rights under the Constitution does not give you the right to trash anyone else’s.


Hats off to the guy in California who is (legally) using aerial drones to record the police violating people’s rights and posting it online. The police are out of control.


For the search the police conducted on Thursday for the bank robber, they needed drone technology for quick response and less manpower.


The United States economy is shrinking, and in doing so it moves ever closer to the Obama/Democrat-designed ultimate conclusion.

I’m trying to pinpoint when exactly people got the idea that they have a “right” to not be offended.


The Washington Redskins name defiles the American Indian about as much as the Green Bay Packers name defiles meat processors. It doesn’t.


Could some of those who get so much ink in The Eagle complaining about “the drought” please come out to my house and mow the grass?


When I often see walkers and joggers risking their lives on roadways, I find it amazing many more are not killed or seriously injured.
