A Blink Of An Eye By Bruce Pearson

A blink of an eye and time goes by              It seems but a blink of an eye, and I watch my life go by.        Was it yesterday I realized I was alive?  Where does the time go?            It seems I should surely know, was it yesterday I was a child?           I must’ve slept a while, now that I am an adult, I have no doubt.                                It was yesterday that I was a child!                                 a blink of an eye and time goes by.

C’mon Now, Let’s Get Real By Paul Collins

                If you have regularly watched television news, you may feel like you are being bombarded by the same stories over and over again.  The news is dominated by the Donald Trump critics, his defenders, Hawaii volcanoes, and school shootings.  Where is the good news?  C’mon, let’s get real.  There must be something else going on in the world: for instance, the Pope has indicated he may retire!  Isn’t that news?  Ireland voted to rescind their laws against abortion.  Isn’t that news?      The possibility of the Pope retiring and the Irish vote to restore abortion are both stories worthy of further investigation.      Today’s media is awash in narcissism.  The reporters resemble prima donas.  The “anchors” seem to be “wannabe” actors.  It seems that glamour has replaced grit.      As a freshman in high school, I enjoyed one semester of speech class.  We were taught about the great newsmen of the day.  I was a freshman in 1949.  Do any of you readers remember H.V. Kaltenborne reporting over radio from “all the ships at sea?”

Friends Of Liberty By Kelly Shackelford

Dear Friends of Liberty, I hope you’re having a great week and that you’re planning to have a great Memorial Day weekend. I wanted you to know that you’re helping make it better for those who serve. They give us their best. They put their lives and health on the line for you and me. That’s why May has been “Military Religious Freedom Appreciation Month” at First Liberty. Currently, we are in intense legal conflict for the religious freedom of service members and veterans like these men: U.S. Army Chaplain Scott Squires. He’s facing a potential career-ending reprimand simply because his faith and his denomination do not allow him to compromise his views on marriage. The future of the Chaplains Corp, first established by General George Washington, could be at stake. Retired veterans Oscar Rodriguez and Chuck Roberson. Uniformed Airmen physically dragged Oscar out of Chuck’s private retirement ceremony at Travis Air Force Base—all because Oscar was invited to give an inspirational speech that included the word “God” (a word that, apparently, a commander didn’t think was legal). We recently sued…

“What’s Up Europe & America,” by James R. Wining

      Just returned from Germany again from a wonderful time with friends and family. Ran into interesting wisdom from a Doctor of Oceanographer from Vladivostok, Russia, a Genealogist from Copenhagen, Denmark, a taxi driver from Hamburg, Germany, a merchant from Kiel, Germany and a Lawyer from London, England. Somehow it might fit altogether for your better interest. The Doctor of Oceanographer from Vladivostok, Russia  was amazed to think America believed Russia wanted Trump president. She also opening chuckled about the time involved in analyzing an impossible relationship. Her fundamental question, “Why would Russia want a self centered bully with power?” The Genealogist from Copenhagen, Denmark admitted there genealogy background service for the public was based on the Nazi system set up in the 1930’s to analyze human deficiencies and perfect a race. “Why would the world care about the intent as long as the means justifies the end.” The merchant from Kiel, Germany answered my question concerning-“Where are the American cars?” I had remembered in the 1980’s how Europe was crowded with English Fords and Chevrolets…
