President Trump disappointed most of the people that voted for him last week when he failed to veto the Omnibus Spending Bill brought to him courtesy of our spendthrift Congress. It seems the Republicans are bent on self-destruction to the delight of the Democrats who are willing to bankrupt the...
That famous line from the Wizard of Oz rushed into my consciousness when I considered the responses of our local legislators to the firestorm they created by voting for the bill to exclude them from the public records act. Their responses fell into two general categories. First, it is too...
  Getting ready for a new year causes all of us to take stock and look at what we need to change. The same is true for our business. Carol and I will be starting our 18th year as owners of NCW Media in 2018.  We have been through a lot of changes during that time but the most significant change is...
  President Trump’s latest outrageously dangerous move is to announce he is moving the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It’s about time.  To be clear, the United States Congress passed a law recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel back in 1995. That law also required the...
  Judge Ray Moore is guilty. He’s never had a trial. Hasn’t had a chance to make his case to a jury of his peers, but he’s guilty. He’s been accused by a number of women of the crime of being a sexual predator. He’s a man so he’s guilty.  Women would never bring such a charge if it just weren’t...

  For decades our foreign policy has been built on the concept of buying peace. Years of negotiations with terrorists like Yasser Arafat, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Il and his marvelous son Kim Jong Un has produced nothing but increasingly greater threats.  The message should be clear to anyone who...
  I love my liberal friends. Although I rarely agree with them, I am sure that the opposite is true. However, the reality is we probably agree about most of the important problems we all face. What don’t agree on is how to solve those problems. The biggest challenge is we just don’t seem to be able...
  In their rush to complain about societal imperfections the NFL protesters have lost sight of some fundamental American values. Values that have found little official expression in the rest of the world. Expressions like the headline of this column that comes from the end of our pledge of...
