We celebrate our nation’s 238th birthday this month, unless we count from the year of the Constitution’s adoption. If so, then it’s a young 227 years old. Too young for a nation to die? Not according to history. We learn civilizations generally collapse within 200 years, so we can wonder if the USA is overdue to “tap out.”
FLAGSTAFF — Arizona Sen. John McCain is pushing an amendment in Congress that would allow anyone who kills bison at the Grand Canyon to keep the meat.
“It’s interesting how Bowe Bergdahl’s former military buddies are all speaking out against, almost like it was scripted. I would bet there was a concerted effort to make Bergdahl look bad. There has been a pay-off in the background. Just wait and see. These are paid detractors.”
After nearly 13 years of war, the number of people we mourn on Memorial Day has grown exponentially. Between invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen, “limited bombing campaigns” in Libya and more, the U.S. has both caused too many deaths and suffered too many losses.
Millions of Americans fought and died to establish and preserve our constitutionally guaranteed right to liberty. Why doesn’t that tell our elected officials where our priority lies? Without our liberty our lives, and more importantly the lives of our children, are reduced to centralized government tyranny and slavery.
Denise Rowland gets the facts wrong (“Tennessee Walking Horse Industry Follows Regulations” May 30) about our organization and the widespread nature of the cruel practice of horse “soring.” But consider the source: Ms. Rowland herself has violated the federal Horse Protection Act; two USDA veterinarians disqualified her horse from showing because of evidence he had been sored. She is an apologist for the industry, which has had four decades to eradicate soring and has failed miserably. Meanwhile, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, all 50 state Veterinary Medical Associations, the American Association of Equine Practitioners and many other industry organizations support the PAST Act and staunchly oppose the bogus Blackburn/Alexander legislation.
Our elected officials in Washington, D.C., talk a good game when it comes to supporting the needs of small-business owners like my husband and I. We run Blockwise Engineering, a manufacturing equipment business in Tempe, Ariz. Like all good small-business owners, we do our civic duty and pay our fair share of taxes to help ensure that our communities have good schools, well-kept roads and other services we sometimes take for granted.
Just got through watching another of President Obama’s dog and pony shows on the TV. As usual, his administration was blameless. The VA scandal was all George Bush’s fault. Too many wounded warriors were showing up for their “promised” VA healthcare. Congress was at fault too. Even though he knew of the VA’s “gaming” of the vet’s appointments back in 2009, it still wasn’t his fault. Excuse after excuse, finger pointing after finger pointing, study after study, commission after commission and now President Obama’s right-hand man is going to “look into the situation and report to President Obama directly” so that he has a better picture of what he has known all along. When will we hear President Obama’s inevitable mea culpa “I am the President of the United States and the buck stops here”? He sounds like your PR-groomed, typical, slick, Chicago lawyer (oops, he was a Chicago lawyer ... lol).

The Democrats complain the press, general public and Republicans are harassing them over the Benghazi scandal. Washington tends to forget who their bosses are, we the citizens.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Becky Domokos-Bays of Alexandria City Public Schools has served her students whole-grain pasta 20 times. Each time, she said, they rejected it.

“Sadly, over the past 6 decades, I have watched the U.S.A. fall from being the world’s guarantor of freedom and justice to being the old geezer that stands on his front porch yelling ‘You kids stay the hell off my lawn!’ ”
