Donald Trump raised a firestorm when he questioned federal judge Gonzalo Curiel’s ability to be fair in his decisions about the Trump University’s civil fraud case. The leftist media held onto the story for months before releasing it and attacking Trump unmercifully. Most surprisingly was the vicious manner the establishment republicans solidly lined up to crucify him as a bigot who had to repent to regain any of their support. Somehow his comment that Judge Curiel could be biased against him because of his tough anti illegal immigrant stance certifies Trump as a racist.

Is Bernie dishonest, brainwashed or just ignorant?

Bernie Sanders is folksy appearing in his rumpled suits and spastic finger pointing. His speeches are direct with simply expressed ideas. Bernie clearly attacks the “1%ers” of each party. The Wall Street lobbyists, big money friends are his primary targets. He often infers that our nation is too capitalistic and we should adopt socialistic policies. His older brother, Larry, who he greatly admires, placed him on his socialist path. He has stated he is a “democratic socialist,” the same term Lenin used before Russia was revealed as a communist state.

OP-ED: The threat of ISIS

With the rest of the nation, I awoke on Sunday morning to hear the devastating news about our neighbors in Orlando. It's a powerful thing to be preparing to go to church and have to confront such evil along the way. Like so many Americans, I spent Sunday morning praying for some measure of clarity. The hard reality is, there are no easy answers.

Tolerance for deviants but not for normal

Humans have the freedom to choose any behavior they desire. However, there are physical limitations to those choices such as flying like a bird, running like a cheetah and swimming to great depths like a fish. We can overcome these limitations with the ingenuity of mechanical devices but flying in an airplane does not make us a bird, a racecar does not make us a cheetah or a dive tank a fish.

We are humans no matter how loud or often our state controlled culture says we can be whatever we want to be regardless of reality.

Immigration has always existed throughout history. As civilizations rose and fell people moved toward those societies that offered more possible advantages and away from ones that were stagnating or decaying.

Throughout history there have always been people who take pride in their work and others who just get by with as little effort as possible. The ones who want to be recognized for their effort see their production as a reflection of themselves.

Many others needed incentives to get them to do the simplest tasks. It is the percentage of the doers versus the takers that determines the vitality of the nation.
At different stages of history nations went through periods of rewarding merit and others rewarded family status.

In our permissive culture hardly anyone is held accountable. People do not want to get involved with correcting anyone else. It is less aggravating to accept an unacceptable excuse than to investigate the circumstance to decide if the person’s reasons for their actions were legitimate. Even if the authority figure arrives at the truth of the person’s behavior he still has to confront the individual. This responsible approach will tarnish the person’s reputation as a “nice guy,” which has become more important than doing his duty.
