by Tony Wyman I live in the Opioid Capitol of America, Dayton, Ohio. Per capita, more people will die in my city from overdosing on opioids, drugs like fentanyl, oxycodone, morphine, tramadol, than any place in America.   “We’re on a pace to to have 800 people die this year from overdose,” Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer told reporters at NBC News.

The Affliction Of Corruption; The Choice to Lie and Cheat

by J. Lee LIE AND CHEAT YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS   It seems the message of today is the more dishonest you are, the more success you have. That is not how it used to be. In the past, society rewarded good and punished bad. Now the opposite is true and people who lie and cheat gain status. Often success and fame is gained for the wrong reasons. Isaiah 5:20 (KJV) Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;…

School Bus

by Oletta Branstiter A New Secretary of Education The nomination of Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education caught many by surprise. Candidate Donald Trump had included the Department of Education in his wish list of cuts during his efforts to prove his Republican bona fides. Some Conservatives, who were otherwise turned off by his personality and lack of Constitutional knowledge were encouraged by his promises to reduce the role of government in their daily lives. Instead of dismantling the extra-Constitutional tax-funded money pits, former Democrat President Trump opted to nominate…

by J. Lee Simpler times of days gone by! Who wouldn’t want to revisit the past when times were simple, considering all the turmoil in our daily lives and throughout our world? Many were not around to experience it. We can dream about it as we watch television re-runs. Merriam Webster – Yesteryear; time gone by; especially: the recent past I long for simple times such as in the days of  I love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, Father Knows Best, The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Rifleman. TV shows like those…

by Dena Leichnitz Abortion is already a heated and polarizing subject, so leave it to the pro-abortion community to make it even more so by creating a musical about the killing of children. The Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training has decided to do a musical about abortion and set it to a song no less. With organizations like Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Rachel’s Vineyard out there on the battle lines, women are talking about abortion and what they are saying is that not empowering, it is…

By Janice Barlow Since President Trump has continued to falsely claim that vaccines cause autism, the anti-vax movements have ramped up their efforts to lay blame on the medical field for the condition. The groups also rail on about how the “Vaccine Court” (Actually known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program), has awarded families and individuals billions of dollars for their claims that vaccines caused harm or death to a family member. What is the problem with that? First of all, there is no actual Court. The NVICP is…

by J. Lee   It is that time of the year when too many pet owners leave their beloved pets in hot cars. It’s a year round problem, but summertime is the deadliest time of the year.

Love Is God’s Greatest Commandment! Compassion Is Its Servant

by J. Lee Matthew 22:37-40 (KJV) Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.     Never forget that born again Christians are works in progress, but how can a person proclaim Christ, yet lack the love of Christ? Those who claim Christianity need to strive to learn Christ-like behavior…

Germany Sings, Ding Dong, The Fidget’s Dead

By Janice Barlow By now we’ve probably all seen them somewhere. Teens and preteens absentmindedly handle them adeptly in their hands everywhere because they always seem to need to have something to handle. Even Barron Trump has one. I’m referring to the toys appropriately named, fidget spinners. Germany has just announced that it is destroying 35 metric tons of these out of control devices. That’s the equivalent of 77,000 pounds. Originally, these flashy colored spin toys were thought to benefit children with ADD and anxiety. This theory has never been proven….
