Reader Opinion: Try it at home first
It's hilarious. Our Marxist-socialist president is going to Cuba to preach democracy. He should try it at home first. Yikes. Joseph Bruhn Brainerd

Reader Opinion: Still working
"This the day which the Lord has made! Rejoice and be glad in it." Ps. 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made! Today. The day Christ went to the cross, he made the day. He made also the day of Sept. 11, 2001. The Lord made all evil that day? Some young people will be celebrating...

Reader Opinion: Vote pro-life
It's not Obama's fault he became president. The U.S. is at fault. Please vote for pro-life candidates! It's that simple. Barbara Bergee Crosby

Reader Opinion: The winner
Who's the greatest lying president? LBJ - "We were attacked." (Gulf of Tonkin). Nixon - "I am not a crook." GHW Bush - "read my lips, no new taxes." Clinton - "I did not have sex with that woman." Obama - "The stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs." "The IRS is not targeting...

Reader Opinion: Winning formula
The news is reporting that in the past nine months 10,000 Muslim jihad fighters have been killed in battle. According to the Koran when a fighter dies in a jihad he gets 72 virgins when he gets to heaven. According to my Minnesota math that means that they have burned through 720,000...

Reader Opinion: War against Christians
When will the outstanding Christian leaders in this country start speaking out against not only the atrocities against Christians all over the world but here in our country? There is growing anti-Semitism and a war against Christians here. Even Jesus called the Pharisees vipers when...

Reader Opinion: Another broken promise
In his 2011 State of the Union speech, Obama "promised" 1 million electric cars On the U.S. highways by 2015. According to the EDTA (Electric Drive Transportation Association) there are only 286,390 today. He "missed" by 72 percent! That after pumping $2.4 billion of your tax...

Reader Opinion: Obama, others erase progress
What the heck happened? Six years ago America elected its first black president. His legacy was going to be peace and harmony, especially with the black community. What happened? Look at the last six months. Race relations in this country have "reverted" to the 60s. Al Sharpton,...

Reader Opinion: Republicans are right on this
Little noticed in the new House-passed trillion dollar spending bill is that it will prevent President Obama from fulfilling his personal pledge to give $3 billion to the UN's Green Climate Fund. So called developing nations like China and India are calling for $100 billion/year in...

Obama's Christmas gift
Soon we will hear again the story of the first Christmas. The story usually ends with shepherds, wise men and animals gathering around the holy family in praise and Thanksgiving. Later the holy family fled to Egypt as King Herod was out to kill all the young boys in the area. Fortunately,...

Stop the barking
President Obama made a friendly gesture by trying on a Chinese styled jacket while visiting China. The Tea Pots and Party Republicans came storming out of their dog houses, yapping and barking over this, like hounds chasing a team of horses and wagon in a Western movie. (The mental...

There's a place for skeptics

The other day Mr. Holst quoted General William T, Sherman as follows: "It is only those who have neither fired a shot, nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, and more desolation." If W.T. Sherman were alive today, I think he would...
