Since I am a 75-year old Liberal Democrat I almost didn't read the article! My big question is-What makes this Front Page NEWS? It is sort of what is referred to as a "Dog bites man" story. Now, had the vote gone the other way for Mr. Biden that would have been news. Something that has been happening for 40+ years ? Maybe not. Wonder who had the idea for the story?

Several remarkable items in this article. When was prayer been removed from public schools? I was raised to believe that I could pray anywhere anytime.

Regarding the 2nd Amendment it is safe, unless it is repealed and that would be difficult. Our Constitution is 240 years old and has had one Amendment repealed.

“Doesn’t sugar coat his words” or actions. Call a POW a loser, insult Gold Star families, mock the handicapped and bragging about sexual assault. And then there are the outright lies.

Mr. Trump lost the election. Joe Biden is the President Elect.

Its relaxing to not have to worry about riots and looting down here

But do remember, That Cash, through her direct line to the Divine, asserts, in print, that supporting the wrong party removes one from 'Christianity'. As well as being concerned with the professed desire of an opposing party to 'single party rule'. How 'single' is the Republican party in the Crossroads just now? Common guys. @Yost: Ultimate twaddle. Thanks.

Utter twaddle.

Never have I said such a thing. If you have proof of that , post the source and the statement. I have posted a video of a Catholic priest video which stated that Catholics and all Christians are responsible before God if they vote for a candidate who votes to abort babies, but I never said any such statement that you attributed to me. If you can not prove that, retract it.

Hi Brenda, Good to see you're well and still full of vinegar. There is no earthly reason for anyone to archive your ramblings. However, re: Never... Try H/T-H just prior to Xmas '15. Stevenson had the answer.

Best to you and yours for T/G, Bob

P.S. And, I'm not a fan of the LWV as stated.
