Whittling away our rights one ‘red flag’ at a time

  We’ve had some more mass shootings.  Both in retail stores in Texas and Ohio.  The left, foaming at the mouth, wants to blame it all on Donald Trump.  That’s kind of like blaming the Oklahoma City bombing (1995) and Columbine (1999) on Bill Clinton….

Tax rate reductions? Nice. (Now, WHERE are the spending cuts?)

Republicans in Raleigh are singing the praises of themselves for great big “tax cuts.”  That’s a good thing to allow people to keep more of their hard-earned money. But politicians view tax cuts different from the way you and I in the real world do. …

*Pssst. Tip off Speck at the N&O. He’ll write ANYTHING (that comes from libs).*
