In this enlightened age, there are few I believe, but what will acknowledge, that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil in any country.”     Robert E. Lee 1856

Could General Lee’s sentiments deter the “tear down those monuments” crowd? Probably not.

Given their current success in removing monuments to Confederate generals, ignorant politicians and those whose hobby is going through life seeking to be offended, will soon run out of things to be offended by. Why not broaden the list of "offensive" symbols to include slaveowners Washington and Jefferson and a host of other founders? Here in Texas you could add slave owning Texas heroes such as Houston, Bowie and Travis.

It goes against the conventional Washington and progressive wisdom that Donald Trump is a racist who hates hispanics, but I think the President should prove the media and Democrats wrong on this. Just consider one bit from this Politico story.

Democrats, already alarmed that Trump’s inroads with Venezuelans could help him peel off an otherwise-reliable Democratic voting bloc in a toss-up state, were quick to denounce Sanders’ comments.

Democrats have long presumed the President was incapable of attracting hispanic voters to his coalition and now they are worried that he is doing it. They should be worried and the GOP should proceed.

"Motives matter. Some agendas are indeed driven by envy and rivalry, but others serve humanity with a desire to foster godly love and good will." (Ref. Philippians 1:15)

Today is Valentine's Day. Traditionally this observance is a day for cards, candy and romance. Yet in the midst of the hoopla, babies are still dying, and many human beings in the womb and outside the womb are still victims of crimes against humanity; with abortion at the top of the list.

Pro-life Americans could be excused for overestimating the importance of recent changes on the U.S. Supreme Court.  They have endured one of the most mind-numbing legal battles in the history of modern man, arguing that it shouldn’t be legal for a medical professional to murder tiny human beings while being consistently thwarted by supposedly friendly judges who seem intent on maintaining a status quo that is outdated, unscientific, unconstitutional, immoral, and horrifically bad jurisprudence.

Early one morning last December, Jeff Gracik was heading to his Southern California home's garage-workshop, where he makes his living, when he heard a loud, hurried knock on his front door. Thinking it might be a rushed UPS driver, he quickly opened the door. But it wasn't UPS. Standing on his doorstep were three badge-flashing inspectors from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. They had come to inspect Jeff's business.

Just what is Jeff's business? Does he produce food? No. Does he produce drugs? No again. So why the unannounced visit by FDA inspectors?

 “Let's not pretend that abortion isn't about the mass slaughter of innocents.” 

We know that love is the interpreter of the law, for love is the fulfilling of the law.

“Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” -Romans 13:10

“And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.” -Luke 6:31)

Democrats in the House of Representatives have rolled out what they are calling a “Green New Deal.” It is the most serious public policy offering from Generation Tide Pod Eater to ever be unveiled. It is exactly what you would expect.

In the rollout of their deal, the Democrats released an outline that summarized their legislation. It included such gems as “When JFK said we’d go to the by the end of the decade, people said impossible.” You might think I left out the word “moon” and a few other choice words. You would be wrong. The Democrats left those out. There is also this one: “we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows.”
