A national sense of shared sacrifice — then and now

In WW2, Americans were asked to make collective sacrifices for the greater good ... and they did. But today, we selfishly flout individualism at the expense of the greater good. Even simple masking and social-distancing guidelines have been met with disdain. What happened to the descendants of the Greatest Generation?

Think it’s a hoax? Planning a big Thanksgiving? Watch this.

If you are planning to ignore the guidelines and have everyone over for Thanksgiving, or you are one of those persons who refuses to wear a mask, watch this. And consider.

Trump 2024

We’re all exhausted from four years of racism, bigotry, misogyny, incoherence, incompetence, and proto-fascism. But Donald Trump ain’t going away; he’ll be campaigning from now until 2024 simply because he literally can’t afford not to.

Selfish churches, selfish Christians

I told a friend of mine about the churches that were ignoring the governor and having in-person services. She said with a snort, "Way to hang together and take care of your fellow human beings. Really showing the love of Jesus to others, aren't they?" I'd say she nailed it – except for needing stronger language.

Besieged in his bunker

Holed up in his quarters and protected by armed guards, the leader refuses to admit inevitable defeat. He inhabits a bizarre fantasy world, his mood swinging wildly between cold fury and deep despondency. Lickspittles rush to soothe the leader. The toadies coo their undying loyalty. They assure him that despite the seemingly insurmountable odds against him, he will persevere.

The “Political Correctness” con

NO ONE is more politically correct than the folks who complain about political correctness.

Quit whining about Kentucky’s newest COVID-19 restrictions. Get on board.

On Wednesday, we had 359 Kentuckians in the intensive care unit and 176 people on ventilators. And now, you’re going to whine about these new measures Gov. Beshear announced because whining is what you do best?

Many Kentuckians face hunger and hardship this thanksgiving. They need relief.

For Kentuckians, time is running out, and for Congress, it’s time to do something worthy of the spirit of Thanksgiving – provide help where it’s needed most.

What happens to our democracy when a minority rules?

A political system that allows minority [party] rule to control the most powerful offices is not legitimate for long. Without majority rule, there can be no democracy.

The remaining shreds of the COVID-19 safety net are dissolving, and McConnell refuses to...

With just two weeks’ worth of legislative working days left, the stakes couldn’t be higher right now, and many of the CARES Act provisions expire completely at the end of the year. McConnell doesn't care.
