Support the troops? How about we just bring them home?

Support the troops? How about we just bring them home?

It seems that however wrong, immoral, and just plain wrong-headed Amerikan governmental policy may be, most folks still advocate that we should “support the troops.” Personally, I fail to see the difference between the attitude depicted in the cartoon above and that exhibited in a recent meme posted by one of my Facebook “friends.”   …

There’s a Trump party,” John Boehner told a Mackinac, Michigan, gathering of the GOP faithful last week. “The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere.” Ex-Speaker Boehner should probably re-check the old party’s pulse, for the Bush-Boehner GOP may not just be napping. The…

photo credit: Bigstock NEW YORK—Question: How can you tell the difference between Elon Musk and an ordinary Tesla owner? Answer: Elon Musk will eventually stop talking about his Tesla.

Can a Pope Change Moral Truth?

Can a Pope Change Moral Truth?

By Patrick J. Buchanan That joking retort we heard as children, “Is the pope Catholic?” is starting to look like a serious question. Asked five years ago about a “gay lobby” in the Vatican, Pope Francis responded, “If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge?” As…
