Two leading House Republicans, Reps. Steve Scalise and James Comer, are asking the Food and Drug Administration for documents that might relate to GOP suspicions that President Joe Biden has politicized the process of administering vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

An interesting article came across the news feed this past week carrying a story from the San Luis Obispo Tribune serving the people near Grover Beach, California. The article contains some implications and applications for us as well.

There is an imaginary furor over the "Build Back Better" bill which, it is said, will carry a price tag of $3.5 Trillion. By comparison the national debt is now thought to be in the vicinity of $28 Trillion.

Responding to Democrats in her party who are troubled by the massive $3.5 trillion spending bill that would forever transform America into a debtor nation, Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked a question: "Where would you cut?"

With such a tumultuous summer, I'm glad we are now beginning the fall season. There for a while, I didn't think it was going to come. But, contrary to my negativity, it has arrived, and I'm delighted.

America is in a battle for the soul of the nation. We can excuse the blunders of the early centuries, ascribing the blame to the underdeveloped intellectual precepts of leadership and power and the proclivity to embrace mythopoetic ideologies.

Texas has low taxes, which is nice. Its mild winter weather appeals to many in the snowbound north. And the cost of living there is certainly lower than that of the elite coastal cities. Also nice.

My fiance and I plan to get married in the spring. I have a pretty sizable family and I want them all there. No one can tell what will happen in the next few months. With the surge of COVID-19 virus cases, things aren't looking good. I'm terrified that I will lose more family members before …

Last week, I went back to school. Kind of.

In his address to Congress on Dec. 8, 1941, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt said: "... we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us. Hostilities exist. Th…

Last week, I woke up bright and early and realized that I was furious. William was home on vacation. The day was sunny. The dogs were healthy. There were all the ingredients to make this a happy day.

When young, I remember my grandfather often saying to me, "the world wasn't like this when I was your age." Then he would go on a long rant about how things were much different when he was my age. Finally, he would conclude by saying, "It's an insane world out there, son."

Twelve of our Marines were killed by a suicide bomber in Kabul. Fifteen more were wounded as we pull out of our twenty-year war in Afghanistan. We seem to be more concerned with who is the blame for the botched evacuation than bipartisan compassion for those who have suffered loss.

As President Lyndon Johnson and the best and brightest of the 1960s were broken on the wheel of Vietnam, the Biden presidency may well be broken on the wheel of the Taliban's triumph in Afghanistan.

What should we have done differently in Afghanistan? This was the question I posed to a US military veteran who served in Afghanistan and is now senior advisor for foreign relations with Afghanistan during a series of Washington DC meetings I had this week on the US response to the crisis. I…

Let's take a step back from ranting and raving about mask-wearing and U.S. vaccination rates.

I don't even remember the first pack of of Topps baseball cards I bought — probably for a dime or so as a very young child in the 60s.

When will mainstream Democrats start fighting back? When will they stop playing nice with a left fringe that regards them, not Republicans, as the opposition, if not the enemy?

The saying is true-if you build it, they will come. Just look at the recent census data showing the areas in Kentucky which saw the most growth over the last 10 years. These areas can credit solid infrastructure as key to attracting businesses and jobs, which lead to population growth.

Yesterday, I found myself flailing around in the upstairs bedroom trying to follow a Zumba video on YouTube. Beside me was my puppy Hugo, who was so confused by what I was trying to accomplish, he kept jumping up like he was trying to save me. My dog Tilly was sitting on the bed, squinting j…

Without any hesitation, I will gladly admit that I am on the short side when it comes to gadgets. For me, most of them do not make any sense at all. Instead, I like things simple and easy.

I grew up in small-town America. My father was not a part of my life during my early, formative years; what formed my ideas of what a man is supposed to be, what was expected of him, and how he should conduct himself with a woman and with people in authority, I learned from the older boys an…

Since I got back from Frankfort, I haven't stopped. I was happy when Mikkle Hampton contacted me to become Public Relations Director For Lake Cumberland Recovery. It gave me a chance to soften my own heart to those suffering from the opioid epidemic that we have right here in our own backyar…

(Editor's Note: This is an open letter to Science Hill Superintendent Jimmy Dyehouse, who made some controversial remarks about Gov. Andy Beshear in a one-call sent to all Science Hill School parents last week.)

Just now, in the wake of the mask mandate for schools, I had a friend text me about how the pandemic was being handled in Canada. I just returned from a trip home after a year and a half and, yes, it sure is a different place than when I left it. Because my friend was curious about what thin…

As best I recall, the sequence of statements coming from the government and "experts" since the beginning of COVID-19 has gone something like this: You don't need to wear a mask and it's no more serious than the flu; you do need to wear a mask, though the virus is so small it can penetrate a…

A very nervous man called 911 and shouted frantically into the telephone: "My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart."

It is a time wherein we find our country starving for a strong unified voice of leadership to right the course of the nation. We are out of balance, and too occupied with infighting to determine the right course. In politics and in the religious community, great leaders are a rarity.

Donald Trump has always loved seeing his name emblazoned on things, from hotels and golf clubs to steaks and airlines. But there is one naming opportunity, one blue chip brand, that the former president has assiduously -- and astoundingly -- ignored: the Trump Vaccine.
