I have only one question for Mr. DeVore and all of the others who insist on belittling the observance of 9/11:

Just exactly what did the deaths, the heroism, the sacrifice of all those lives, have to do with the incursions into Iraq and Afghanistan? What did they have to…


Biden’s agenda is in trouble and not just in the Senate.

Caren White’s article about Second Amendment Sanctuaries made me tackle a topic I have been meaning to address for some time: How is gun control faring away from the media and the Coasties who love it?
