Bullying won’t get Limbaugh’s message across

Clovis Media Inc. The language wasn’t the worst part about Rush Limbaugh’s tirade last week, in which he called a Georgetown University law student a “slut” and a “prostitute” because she wants contraception to be a requirement of health insurance. Limbaugh’s decision to target a private citizen, rather than, say, President Obama who has championed […]

Ron Paul’s message makes him favorable

Ron Paul almost certainly won’t get the GOP presidential nomination, and Mitt Romney probably will. Alas, Romney won’t have anywhere near the passionate support that Paul brings to the race.

My turn: New year won’t change my opinions

New Year’s resolutions that I can’t possibly keep include: • Not yawning when stars are praised excessively for charitable acts — even though it costs them little for the fawning attention. • Not Sunday-morning-quarterbacking pietists who say that the United States was founded on Christian principles — but can’t name any. • Not scoffing at […]

Moammar Gadhafi’s death won’t be mourned

Freedom New Mexico We’re certainly not lamenting the death of former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Before being kicked out of power this summer by NATO-backed rebels, he tyrannized and terrorized his people for 42 years.

Wind damages area property

Robin Fornoff The National Weather Service says it was just a really strong wind. But that won’t convince Leland Pool what hit his place in Roosevelt County was anything but a tornado.

Overthrowing Gadhafi won’t ensure peace

Freedom New Mexico Good riddance to Col. Moammar Gadhafi, the Libyan dictator who oppressed his people for 42 years while fostering terrorism abroad.
