Newsflash: ‘The sky is still not falling’

A Patriot's Opinion
By Jim Snyder
Well, just as expected the left and all of their climate change fanatics are losing the minds over President Trump pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Climate agreement. Within minutes of his announcement, the environment
A-listers were predicting doom and gloom on a global scale. Of course, the one thing that is never discussed is how wrong these people have been with their predictions of climate Armageddon.
Starting back in the early 70’s, they were actually predicting another ice age. But when that didn’t happen they needed a new way to milk people out of their hard-earned money. So along came their prediction of what was known at the time as Global Warming.

It’s a great day to be a Lady Mustang

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably already know that just last week, the Hughes Springs Lady Mustangs made the trip to Austin for the UIL Class 3A State Softball Championships. This marked the first time in program history that the team has made it to this point in the season.
Only four teams made the trip to Austin at the 3A level. Hughes Springs was the only team from East Texas to make the trek.
During their run to Austin, the Lady Mustangs accomplished some pretty lofty feats. The team, comprised of mostly sophomore and juniors, lost only two games during the regular season and entered the state semifinal matchup with a 34-3 record. (One of their losses was to Little River, who ended the Mustangs season in Austin.)
Of the team’s players, no regular position player had a batting average lower than .200.
As I think back on the Mustangs’ season, a few things come to mind.

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.
