Torture is evil, no matter the reasoning

I have heard and read so much about our extreme interrogation, maybe torture, of the Muslim terrorist suspects. The Muslim extremists are wicked and evil. I would never want to be anything like them. My God is a God of love, not of hate and evil. If I ever had the chance to shoot a terrorist…

Gay marriage won't affect your marriage

We need to really pay attention to the items before our Legislature! Heck, I was getting all upset about the gay marriage ban being thrown out. Now, mind you, I did not want to upset my gay friends who I really cherish, but I had the wrong information about what allowing gay marriage was goi…

Others beside gay community have rights

Not In Our Town is a terrific movement. It rallied the whole town to prevent discrimination against Jews, or anyone for that matter. What a terrific success. No law needed. No ruling to make us think one way or the other. Rather it is a commitment to not let anyone harass or bully those of d…

Russia has right idea on restricting immigrants

I do not think we are paying attention to what is going on with the Muslim world, and we are not acting responsibly in America. As fast as we are changing, this could very well lead to our collapse in just two generations. The leaders in both Australia and Russia have both stated plainly tha…

Let veterans use private health care as a benefit

Fixing the VA hospital mess is really simple! Three quick steps and we will have excellent care for all our veterans. First, give all the vets a Medicare card where they can go to any doctor just like the rest of the population. Second, forbid the government from setting up special rules or …

U.S. government bullying Russia over Crimea

I am absolutely appalled at the ridiculous rhetoric coming out of our government leaders in regards to the Ukrainian and Russian conflict. Russia went into the Crimea area without firing a shot because those people don't agree with the revolution and then agreed to set up quick elections whe…

U.S. must set example to stop bullies

I think maybe the "Stop Bullying" campaign needs to start with our nation’s leaders. How ridiculous that we loudly complain about other countries leaders, policies or actions and then wonder why those countries don't feel good about America. Did we let diplomacy end with Henry Kissinger's re…

Golden Pen Award: Boston bombings were senseless, evil, cowardly

My mother told me to say what I mean and not try to sugarcoat things if I wanted people to understand what I was saying. So I wonder when we have some idiots with a bomb killing children and our general populace why we don’t call them just evil and cowards like they are?

Hang on to good, solid morals

Wow! I can't believe the changes in my short time here on earth. We have cars that make us mobile enough to get around 100 times faster than the horses could. We have the Internet to keep in touch with the family spread all over America. We have phones that keep us available to whoever wants…

America should mind its own business

I remember the acronym “MYOB” that used to be plastered all over in a store where I worked in my early 20s. There had been entirely too much gossip and it was affecting the atmosphere in the workplace. A very bright personal lady at that time gave us all several pep talks and put a quick sto…

Golden Pen Award: Congress should let U.S. go over 'fiscal cliff'

Well I am betting that we will not see Congress come up with a compromise that will prevent us from going over the so-called "fiscal cliff." After all, why would we not let that happen? The planned cuts would give us an excellent “starting point” for cutting our way out of control federal go…

Tax rates won't fix America's spending problem

I just got two more forwarded emails about taxes and what is fair and who pays what amount. It seems there is 100 times as much conversation about taxes as there is about spending.

It's hard to hate when you actually know

I think I am going to get some pen pals in Iran, North Korea and maybe Syria. Here is why. On a trip from Italy last summer, on the plane segment from Rome to Paris, the stewardess asked me if I would switch my seat so a family could sit together. I said sure I would switch, and a young fami…

Golden Pen Award: Vulgar by other names is just the same

I think we confuse our young in America by trying to call some things by names that kind of camouflage the real meaning. For example: I just received a flyer in the mail from my favorite local theater that described one of their new productions as having "maturity of language" and "strong la…

Golden Pen Award: Forgive my selfishness about my Montana

As I put on my coat, ear warmers and gloves to take the dogs on my early morning walk, I heard the weather station talk about it being only 20 degrees in the Billings area and another Canadian cold front was on the way. I chuckled to myself, knowing that that forecast would scare the beejeeb…

Referendums are best way to decide in a democracy

It is really interesting how the stock market and the world reacted to Greece's decision to put the agreement of austerity moves on the ballot! Isn't that what democracy is all about, letting the people decide what direction the country should go?

It's time for the silent majority to speak up

If our discussion of our present mess in America is all about whose fault everything is, then you are just wasting time and effort.
