Why not use the real Confederate flag? I read something that really made sense to me. People who say the flag is not a symbol of hate that...

Mississippians voted to keep the Confederate flag emblem The free people of a free state are being forced to change the flag that the free people of a free state voted ovewhelmingly to keep. Kevin Thornton Sons of Confederate Veterans Iuka ––––– Which history symbols must go and which can remain? The question of whether […]

Lions Band deserved more prominent play I was so pleased with the Daily Journal’s reporting last week of the Mississippi Lions All State Band and their preparation for International Competition in Hawaii this week. However, I was saddened this morning to see the almost hidden report of their winning the World Championship. This group is […]

Obama demonstrated grace in Pinckney eulogy I am so proud of our president, Barack Obama. His responsibility is awesome and his courage is amazing. May God grant him and all Americans the grace he spoke of Friday in the eulogy/sermon he delivered at the funeral of the Rev. Clementa Pinckney in Charleston, S.C. I hope […]

I don’t know how the killer in Charleston could have made his motives any clearer, and people still argue about what it all means? […]

War’s nothing but a racket for nation Our dear leader wishes to spend a few billion dollars re-equipping and training the Iraqi Army. For what? How to run faster? Even though they heavily out-numbered the enemy, the first time they saw an ISIL,they ran, abandoning everything except their American sun-glasses, without firing a shot. Also, […]

Devil seen in the killings in Charleston Seeing this by a young man at a church really got me upset so I’m giving my opinion again. Rev.12-7-10 says: “There was a war in heaven; Michael and his Angels fought against the dragon and the dragon fought with his angels and the dragon was cast out […]
