Dems will not be winners in next election

Why do Congressional Democrats and the mainstream media hate rich people? Many of these folks fall into the rich category themselves. Do they think jobs come from poor people? I’ve never had a job offered to me by a poor person, have you? Not a single Democrat voted for the tax reform bill this week because they say it helped the rich. So what, if it helps the rich, the poor and large corporations? Everybody wins! The Democrats think they will pick up seats in Congress next election by not voting on the tax bill, but they are mistaken. The economy, stock market and industry will be so strong, no rational voter will want change. I’ve never seen such optimism among our citizens before in my life.

Mueller investigation necessary for democracy

The Mueller investigation is bitter, but necessary, medicine for America. That Russia interfered in the 2016 election has been established. Our citizens must know what happened, how it was done and who participated. Hopefully, the Mueller investigation will answer these questions.

Trump, conservative media outlets that prey on low-information Americans and some Republican officeholders want to bring it to a halt. Since the Flynn guilty plea and without cause they have relentlessly disparaged the FBI and Robert Mueller.

The investigation must continue. Trump erroneously thought firing Comey would stop the examination. Removing Mueller would be a thousand times worse for him. Many Americans would then conclude that he conspired with Russia to win the election.

Russian interference in our election was an attack on our democracy. It will be a tragedy if there is a coverup. I hope Trump did not collude with Russians, for the sake of our beloved nation. But we must know.

Opinion: Foes of renewable energy increase risk of climate catastrophe

Peter Thiel, Facebook investor and Donald Trump supporter, is by all accounts a terrible person. He did, however, come up with one classic line about the disappointments of modern technology: “We wanted flying cars, instead we got 140 characters.” OK, now it’s 280, but who’s counting? The point of his quip was that while we&rsquo...

Left’s gender-neutral society will be weird I’m getting a glimpse of what a gender-neutral society is going to look like. Spurred on by leftist social scientists and a troop of useful idiots (of both sexes), that society is beginning to unfold. As I recently read an article, I came across the term “theybies.” It means babies...
Opinion: What happened in Starbucks isn’t really about Starbucks

I don’t drink coffee, so I can’t boycott Starbucks. But I wouldn’t if I could. Yes, I understand — and share — the national anger over viral video of last week’s arrest of two African-American men at one of the company’s Philadelphia stores. The men, who have yet to be identified, were reportedly doing nothing...
Opinion: Pricing carbon would honor Earth Day, protect Georgia

I recently had the opportunity to visit some of Haiti’s little-known fishing islands, where fishermen build dense communities on tiny islets located in good fishing waters. Unfortunately, these islands are in trouble: sea level rise and severe hurricanes are wiping them off the map; some of the islands have even been rebuilt with conch, dirt...
