Not Even One

There used to be some conservative Democrats. JFK was for a strong defense and was fervently anti-Communist, with an emphasis on using Special Forces for counter-insurgency. He was also a tax cutter. Henry "Scoop" Jackson was strong on national defense and determined to end Soviet tyranny. Sam Nunn was a defense hawk. There is no Democrat in the House or Senate today who carries conservative beliefs like these great Democrats of old held.

Only a Handful

There are just a few true conservatives representing the people in Washington. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are down the line with the right in the Senate. Tennessee's Marsha Blackburn is a real conservative in the US House. I would characterize President Trump as a populist who embraces less intrusion into business by government. If there were more conservatives in DC, we could make America even greater.

Republicans Betray Voters

An amnesty for illegal aliens is the quickest way to destroy the GOP and our country as it was founded. That is why I am fairly certain that is exactly what Republicans in the House and Senate are going to force down the throats of the people who voted them in with the main expectation that those they voted in would protect our border.

Air Conditioning Miracle

Some parts of the United States would be virtually uninhabitable were it not for air conditioning. Thank goodness, we in Nashville are mostly comfortable because of the innovative minds that gave the world air conditioning.

Free But Fair

Donald Trump is a free trader who has reluctantly had to impose tariffs because of unfair trade practices and currency manipulation. When the world economy is once again a level playing field, President Trump will happily give up tariffs. Our President is simply tired of seeing the US lose in trade deals because of lousy negotiators and lose in trade itself because of foreign cheating.

David Whips Goliath

In the soccer world, Mexico is considered an average team. Germany was thought to be a powerhouse. Somehow, Mexico defeated Germany in this weekend's World Cup action. This is a real stunner. Bravo Mexico!

Futbol Versus Football

Soccer is a game I played a bit of in middle school. It demands skill and rigorous conditioning. It goes without saying that every player in the World Cup is a great athlete. To the sensibility of many Americans, soccer is still a boring game. Americans, who love a 38 to 35 football game decided on a last second field goal, just can't see the beauty of a 1-nil soccer match,where the winners kick the ball around their own side of the pitch most of the game. Football players are undeniably powerful but very few could be in constant motion, often running at full speed for ninety-plus minutes. Soccer is called by its enthusiasts "the beautiful game". I think there is room in the world for more than one beautiful game.
