Try the anti-Clinton vote on November I wanted to comment on the provocative cartoon that appeared at the top of the Journal’s opinion...

Selfish world needs a generous response By the age of 5, I shared my scissors with a boy. I told him to practice on my hair, because “everyone has to learn and everyone has to share.” By the age of 15, I was directing an (unofficially) non-profit summer camp geared towards the prevention of body […]

All pastors should focus on salvation As I read James Hull’s demands in Sunday’s edition for a “civilian oversight of our police,” I couldn’t help but notice that he was making these demands on behalf of “Blacks.” Considering this demand, I had a few questions about his demands: • Why should there be an oversight […]

Trump receives a free pass from too many Even before I read the Cal Thomas article in the June 30 issue of the Daily Journal, I wondered about Donald Trump’s connections, if any, that he had with a higher power.

Or did […]

Dregs run the show across the U.S. Present today all across America is the worst bunch of faux humans, who try masquerading as informed citizens. This band of fakers, the terrible Baby Boomers, has no morals, ethics nor recognizes the difference between good and evil. This the Woodstock pinheads who came to power in Bill […]

Still opportunities to cater to travelers with new airline First, let me say thank you to Dennis Seid for keeping us updated with regard to the operations of Contour Airlines and our Tupelo Airport, most recently his article on June 12, 2016.
