A Memorial Day like no other

By Claudia Young Memorial Day Weekend, 2020, is one that is unlike the Memorial Days most of us have experienced. This huge difference is in part due to the pandemic as well as the hate mongering that is currently flourishing in our country. Wouldn’t it be a welcome relief to have a cessation of the hatred and vile accusations for even this one national holiday to reflect on the sacrifices of all who have given so much for our country through military service?

He is the worst president in US history and we must do everything in our power to defeat him. Joe Biden was not my first choice. But I ... Full Story

I watched George Bush the Younger and Dick Cheney utterly botch Iraq. But in my lifetime I have never witnessed any US president botch anything so disastrous as Trump has botched the response to covid 19. I didn’t know so many mistakes were even possible and he just won’t stop. His coronavirus denial was ... Full Story
