Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

Free Martha Stewart

George Foster - July 4th, 2002
Lord have mercy, what a woman. I am in love with Martha Stewart.
None of the divas that most guys gush over can hold a candle to her. Pamela Anderson may strut around in the underbelly of the rock music scene but wouldn‘t know what to say to a corporate CEO. Cameron Dias obviously cannot cook a lick because she is just skin and bones. Britney Spears is just a girl - way, way too young. Martha Stewart, on the other hand, is ALL woman.
The feeding frenzy that has erupted in the media recently over possible charges against Stewart by federal authorities for violations of insider trading laws seems silly. Since the accusations began flying, though, I must admit I have changed my opinion of her - I am endeared to my Martha more than ever.
Why, you ask? Martha Stewart has stolen my heart because she is a bitch - at least that‘s the label many have given her. Unfortunately, becoming a self-made, successful woman in the male-dominated sectors of America is often synonymous with being called a bitch.
Jackie Kennedy was considered the ideal first lady because stood in the background gazing at the president adoringly, while somehow finding time to give tours of the White House for distinguished guests. Hillary Clinton was thought to be a bitch because she was an accomplished attorney, wrote best-seller books, had strong opinions of her own and possessed enough political savvy to eventually win a seat in the U.S. Senate.
In the past, women could usually escape the B-word label if they were accomplished in the kitchen in particular and on the domestic front in general. Martha Stewart drives us crazy, though, because she is just as comfortable giving millions of TV viewers her tips on baking chocolate chip cookies as she is negotiating in the corporate board rooms of her billion dollar enterprise. Martha Stewart may be more dangerous than Nat Turner. What if she leads a rebellion of other women off the plantation?
Give me a bitch anytime. There is nothing sexier than a strong, independent woman. Martha Stewart stands toe to toe with her detractors, mano y mujer, and continues to thrive. As with most successful businesswomen, she has had to be twice as smart, three times as ambitious, and ten times more hard working than her male counterparts - and she is.
Do you think Stewart‘s alleged stock-trading improprieties would have gotten the same attention if Martha had been born Mark? Even if the accused was a rich celebrity like Donald Trump or Michael Jordan - no way would the public care about such dealings among men. Investors benefit from insider trading every day but we rarely hear about it.
Yet, Stewart is now under intense media scrutiny similar to murder cases involving the Smart family and Robert Blake because she may have netted $43,000 on an investment transaction that involved a tip from a friend in the business. Come on, this is a pittance compared to the millions earned by high rollers on Wall Street in shady transactions.
I guarantee you, even if charges are brought against her for these infractions, she will be ruled innocent. However, Martha Stewart is guilty of an offense that will be difficult for many American men to ever accept: the crime of being a highly successful and independent woman.
