TEA PARTIES: Spread the blame

In over 500 cities and towns — including Sulphur Springs — Americans are rising up in protest today over President Obama’s handling of the economy and a scary escalation of tax policies. Dubbed "tea parties," in the spirit of the famous Boston uprising in 1773, these peaceful protests should be applauded as a citizenry in action.

GOING ‘GREEN’: Can we afford it?

America wants to go green. It is a worthwhile project that should get the attention and support of every man, woman and child. Quite frankly, our planet depends on it.

CHILD PROTECTION: A job for us all

We have all heard the stories and seen the reports. The statistics stare back at us like a terrible B-grade horror movie. Our children are not always safe from harm and the simple fact is that we have to do more than we are doing to bring about change.

Economists are divided on just how effective the strategy will be, but there is one thing for certain: The U.S. debt mark is climbing — and that is never a good thing.


POWER GRAB: President Obama must not overstep authority

President Barack Obama has now gone where few, if any, American Presidents have gone before — for all intents and purposes, he fired the CEO of a publicly-traded U.S. company. 

We have reached very scary waters.
