Pumpkins and cotton stalks are triggering some black people. Today’s blacks have come a long way, but not in the way you think. Their ancestors endured kidnapping at the hands of their own people, shackles, torturous cargo ships, whips, defacement, the forced breakup of the family, forced labor, lynching, Jim Crow laws, separate water fountains …

New York Times columnist Bret Stephens wrote an article that was published on Independence Day where he described Donald Trump’s supporters as “idiots” who should “admire” elites. Of course, Stephens is one of the elites we should admire otherwise how would we know who to support if he weren’t elitist enough to tell us? Stephens whined …

President Trump has been attacked by the ever-vigilant Never Trumpers for some of the comments he made in the address he delivered while in Warsaw, Poland.

On June 11, the residents of Puerto Rico voted to become a state, although the turnout was very low. This is a bad idea. It would mean we would have to add an additional star to our flag. How do you configure 51 stars? Here are two real reasons Puerto Rico should not become a state. First, its economy …

We don’t celebrate July 4th. We celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. What are we celebrating? Do most Americans know? The Declaration of Independence was a bold statement against tyranny. We live in a time of greater tyranny. The taxes were minimal in 1776, and yet the people were willing to take a stand against …

John McEnroe, the former bad boy of tennis, stepped in it the other day by telling the truth. He was being interviewed by NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro about his new book, “But Seriously,” and was irritated with how he qualified Serena Williams as “the best female player in the world.” Here’s how it went: Garcia-Navarro: “Why say …

Some liberal governors are threatening to disobey laws that may be passed restricting certain liberal policies like immigration, drugs, and abortion. Good for them on the principle. What if a federal court ruled that gun ownership is no longer permitted in the United States and all guns must be confiscated? Should the states comply and …

Gene Ponder, a teacher of Advanced Placement Government/Economics at Spanish Fort High School, compiled a list of 31 books for summer reading. Students only had to choose one book.
