Women’s movement needs re-booted

The absolute disdain shown to the women in the Trump administration is shameful. The verbal and media assaults against these ladies are just the most recent example of why the women’s movement is this country needs to be overhauled. This behavior by these groups that claim to support women’s rights and issues is nothing new.

The National Organization for Women (NOW) has for decades made the claim that they are fighting for women’s rights. The sad thing is that has not always included all women.

When Sarah Palin was picked to be John McCain’s vice presidential running mate she was dragged through the mud on a daily basis. Palin was an accomplished woman, a former governor of Alaska and a successful business woman, in her own right. So when she was being brutally attacked did any of these so called women’s groups come to her defense?No, they stood by and turned a blind eye to what was happening and in some cases piled on and helped with the criticism.

"You have the right to remain silent..."

From My Perspective

By Toni Walker

Anyone who has ever been arrested by police, or has seen a movie where someone is arrested, knows how this phrase ends. “…Anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law.” I believe, wholeheartedly, that one should take heed of this warning when instructed by the police. But, the statement applies to life, as well.

From my perspective, the statement, and its reverse, should be one that all of us hold as a standard to remember when speaking. We do have the right to remain silent, and I am not just talking about when an officer of the law tells you to. We all have the ability to make a choice to remain silent. And sometimes, when things don’t directly affect us, it is best if we keep silent.

The Democrats learned nothing from this election

A Patriot's Opinion

By Jim Snyder

Well it seems that the democrat party has learned nothing from their loss in the November election. The American people spoke and told them that they were tired of the same old political cronyism and they wanted a change.

What do you muse about?

Boomer Musings

By J. Leslie Riseden

Well, here we are, dear readers, on the precipice of 2017. Whaaaat? Remember when we used to wonder how in the world we would even refer to a year that begins with “20?” How long did it take you to stop writing “19” in your date line without even thinking? Well, anyway, I’d like to add a new dimension to this column in 2017.

For almost a year now, I’ve shared with you my memories, musings and the thorns in my side. In the coming months, I’d like to hear from you, and share some of your thoughts.

What amazes you about the youth of today? What puzzles you? What really ticks you off? What’s changed since you were a kid, and what hasn’t really changed at all? Are your grandchildren from another planet, or do you actually get what they’re talking about? What do you think about the music, movies and television of the day?
