Shared Wisdom on a Silver Anniversary

Wed, 07/25/2018 - 21:51
<p>To commemorate my 25th wedding anniversary this week to my husband, Jesse, I asked readers on Facebook to share their own secrets to a long happy marriage. In short, the crowdsourced recipe for marital endurance includes faith, forgiveness, romance, kindness, selflessness and a healthy dose of humor. A union built to last begins with a promise and persists through compromise and commitment. It is about keeping your word, choosing the right words and knowing when no words are necessary.</p>

<p>Day after day in the Trump era, one has to wonder if the left and their media allies will run out of panic buttons to push.

Vice Claims Twitter Is ‘Shadow Banning’ Conservatives

Wed, 07/25/2018 - 20:58

Mark Meadows (R-NC), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) all do not automatically fill into the search bar when users begin to look up their accounts if they do not follow those accounts. The search also reportedly fails to list the verified account for Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).</p>

NYT Treats Census Citizenship Query as Sinister, Ignores Presence on 2000 Form

Wed, 07/25/2018 - 20:00
<p>In Wednesday’s <em>New York Times</em>, Michael Wines targeted Commerce Secretary Wilbur L. Ross Jr.’s explanations for why the Trump administration added a question about citizenship to the 2020 census -- or more accurately, re-added and expanded. In “A Question’s Murky Path Onto the 2020 Census,” Wines went on the warpath against a very basic proposed Census question about citizenship, one that last appeared on a Census form -- the “long-form” version -- in 2000 (the next to last Census taking).</p>

And he topped it all off by claiming Jesus was a socialist. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, and darling of the Democratic Party.
