The Rant

To the honest lady who found my wallet on the Riverwalk — thank you. May God bless you.

Had Clinton won the presidency by the electoral vote and Trump lost while winning the popular, I doubt one liberal would be complaining about the Electoral College.

President Vladimir P. Trump.

Jan. 20: The end of an error.

Twitter is the perfect platform for a man who cannot coherently put together more than 140 characters anyway.

Is the Russian hacking a fact and as reliable as weapons of mass destruction?

If you don't know, give a short answer. If you're wrong, reverse your short answer. That used to be called flip-flopping. Today it's Trump's tweets.

Who cares what Hollywood thinks about Trump? They live in a "La-La-Land" and do not know what reality is.

Is it the community's responsibility to feed hungry children, supervise teenagers in public places and bribe students to attend school? Why aren't parents accountable?

Is there anyone out there who knows the exact month and year the U.S. and then the world went insane?

Dylann Roof: Is a court trial really needed?

Some said we would have to learn Spanish because of all the Mexican people here. Looks like it will be Russian now!

Can anyone stop the destruction caused by the Colonial Pipeline before it's too late? Corker? Alexander? Anyone?

Improve schools. Reduce crime. Where are the fathers?

Re: empty or full brain cartoon by Clay Bennett. Which one is the multimillionaire president, and who is drawing cartoons for a living?

Five more days and Obama can start earning $500K for a 35-minute speech.

The left keeps complaining about Trump's relationship with Putin but forgets the last eight years of Obama's relationship with Iran and the Muslim world.

Cabinet appointees don't complete information needed for vetting. Already they won't follow the rules. What are they hiding? Afraid they won't be confirmed?

Most enrollees for Obamacare are in Texas, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania, which Trump won after he vowed to repeal Obamacare.

Why does a businessman give up a certain income? Because he knows he'll make a lot more (as a government insider).

I want to thank the people who voted for Trump. You are handing our country over to Russia without it firing one shot!

A recent letter writer decries Signal Mountain's desire to have its own schools. But I bet she will send her kids to her alma maters, Bright's and GPS.

Hope the Signal Mountain schools' "breakaway" advocates cough up some financial figures to back up their plans. Sooner is better than later, folks.

It's evident by Trump's first news conference this year the Beltway media don't know what to do when someone speaks truth to (perceived) power.

Mayor Berke announced the re-purposing of the Dixie Yarns property before the March election. But the city can't take possession until later? What?

The Democrat Party has all but crowned New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker as its 2020 presidential nominee. Book(er) it!

A big shout out to Channel 3, WRCB-TV, for its "Joy to the World" commercials. Thank you.

The kind letter of goodwill addressed to Islamic friends and neighbors from a group of Pentecostals was beautiful, encouraging and what humanity is all about.
