When did the Republican Party lose its way? Once the party of Lincoln, freedom, justice and fiscal conservatism, the party has now morphed into the party of Trump. This means the party represents pathological lying, tearing families apart and the worst kind of racism, sexism and anti-science…

I have a different perspective on the Colin Kaepernick controversy than Terry Weakley of Riddle. I think that Terry’s heart is in the right place, because as a veteran (combat medic-Vietnam), I also do not want to see anyone desecrate our flag or our national anthem.

John McCain is a good example of what's wrong with American politicians. He got a terminal cancer diagnosis over a year ago and didn't resign. He believed Arizona and America just couldn't function without his exalted presence. He missed critical votes and even turned on his local constituen…

I got excited over Chuck Stuermer’s letter about boycotting football, initially because I thought he was railing against the NFL’s years of foot dragging over chronic brain injuries, and I was with him. Then I read further. He clearly does not understand why players are kneeling during the p…

Every week, I receive fear-mongering mail about immigration threats and the need to repeal Oregon's Sanctuary Law. The Sanctuary Law passed the legislature 30 years ago with overwhelming approval from both sides of the aisle. Oregon's sanctuary law prohibits the use of state and local resour…
