Mothers can make a difference
We don’t have to stay the way we were born. Sinners.
I believe that we, as women, should teach our children right from wrong so that when they (grow up), they will better understand who is who, and what their purpose is, whether in the home, or outside the home. Then, I believe, the world will be a better place to live in. Respect one another.

Open-borders folks would change tune if they lived on the border
Byron York is spot on in his remarks about the crisis at the border. Not only is there a crisis at OUR Southern border there us a crisis of our country. I suggested to our President that for those who are advocating for open borders, send the illegals to their states and then see how fast these representatives, senators and citizens would be screaming for border control And let my freedom from this invasion (because that is what I is) ring this 4th of July!

Census intended to preserve voice of citizens, not foreigners
Astounding what is happening. Dysfunction of US government, the lack of logic and understanding of the US Constitution, We, as in “We the people” have lost understanding of the role of the US government. It is manifest in the constitutional requirement for an enumeration every ten years to determine the number of representatives and electoral votes for each state. It is to count the number of people, persons, citizens of each state. That is the sole reason for the enumeration or census. It is not to include, for representative purposes to the US government, people in the state on vacations or visiting or there illegally. It is to determine the number of “people of the state,” not people in the state.
Three federal judges have denied the inclusion of a citizenship question in the census and the supreme Court has even had the case presented to it. Have we lost our minds?
The census is to provide current citizenship data so the states can have their constitutionally specified representation and electoral votes. The election of the president is by popular vote within each state, winner gets all the electoral votes, the people do not vote directly for president in a national election, it is the states voting with their electoral votes that determine the winner. That is to say the US government deals with the states not the people of the states individually.
We, the people, should not tolerate such stupidity! Vote in new people that appreciate the genius of what we have inherited, The Constitution of the United States.
