Speaking Truth to Power

...Americans were asked, "What is the most important Amendment to the US Constitution", that may thwart totalitarianism?

The YouGov, a UK global public opinion firm, latest research shows that 41% of Americans say that the First Amendment which guarantees freedom of religion, free speech, assemble, press, and petition is most important...

Interestingly, last week in the Kentucky legislature, experts were called to testify about House Bill 67, and many voices were silenced. So much for the freedom of speech in Frankfort.

The Bill amends the state constitution to remove protections and funding for a women's right to choose. You would think that such a serious change would be fully vetted with lots of expert witness testimony on all sides of the issue. Unconstitutional?

Also, in KY Senate Bill 90, health care employees would get legal protections for those who declined to participate in actions contrary to "religious, moral, ethical, or philosophical beliefs." If passed, this would be the most extreme law like this in the country...

Professor Clardy presents black history lecture to interested audience

(Clinton, KY) - Many of us attending Dr. Brian Clardy's Black History Month program at Green Valley Missionary Baptist Church on February 20th thought we knew history.

Fortunately for the thirty or so who attended, he was willing to supplement our lack of information.

The Generals Speak
The Generals Speak

...Presidents' Day became the commonly accepted name, partly due to retailers' use of President's Day sales and the proximity to Lincoln's birthday. Thus, on the third Monday of February, we celebrate.

George Washington was highlighted in a recent column "The Man who would NOT be King". "To George Washington the key ingredient [for exercising power] was moral character which gave to his decision-making a quality of careful, good judgement and to his authority a generosity of spirit."

Our current occupant of the White House has neither moral character, good judgement nor generosity of spirit...

Editor's Note: In his column for the Murray Ledger republished here with his permission, Marshall Ward recounts what generals have said about the current commander in chief..

America 2020: Two Nations and the Myth of One Community

Since the very first day of its founding, America has been a nation in motion of trying to define itself through exploration of geography, settlement of frontiers, inventors of always new technology and a fear of what lies across the great oceans. For many, this fear comes from a primeval lineage of families fleeing hells of economic slavery and minority persecution for religion or culture.

Saying Goodbye to General Mosby, Kindred Spirit and Partner

Mosby, part of my spiritual connection with the rhythms of nature is no more of this world. He left me today at 11:35 am. I held him in my arms for the last time. Stroking his gray furry head, life left him battling a rare disease.

Mosby was my special gray Maine Coon kitten who grew over 12 years to be my personal side kick in pushing the boundaries of personal growth.

Red Flag law targets dangerous individuals - but roils 2A devotees
Red Flag law targets dangerous individuals - but roils 2A devotees

...The purpose of Indiana's red flag law is to prevent someone who is considered to be a safety threat from buying or possessing firearms until their mental state can be assessed or the issue otherwise resolved. Three separate reviews must be met before that can happen, said Mull: law enforcement must find probable cause that the person is a safety threat, a prosecutor must file an action in court, and a judge has to find "clear and convincing evidence" that an order is needed...

A similar law proposed for Kentucky died during the 2019 session of the General Assembly.

So much for any commonsense proposal that comes close to touching on the inalienable rights of gun owners, sellers and manufacturers.
