So much for Lincoln's proclamation: "That this nation under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from this earth." The people have spoken but our president and members of Congress refuse to listen....

Reader Opinion: Where's our priority?
We pander to less than 2 percent of the population who claim to be transgender. We have 94 million American workers unemployed. Our national debt has doubled under Obama. Wages/salaries for Middle Class Americans have stagnated. And our biggest concern in the media is where to "pee?"...

Reader Opinion: Bathroom habits
Doesn't the Minnesota government have better things to do then decide what bathroom transgenders should be using? You are born a male, you use the one for men; born a female, use the one for women. I may be a grown woman but I wouldn't want to go into a women's bathroom and find a...
