Pieces of the American Pie

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

by Gary Spina “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” Only this time it was Speaker of the House John Boehner taking a page out of Nancy Pelosi’s playbook as he strong-armed lawmakers to pass the 1700-page comprehensive 1.1 trillion dollar CR-Omnibus Bill. And like the Obamacare bill, Boehner’s “bipartisan,…

by Gary Spina The liberals are bashing America again, delighted that protestors and rioters have taken to the streets over the Ferguson and Eric Garner grand jury decisions.

by Gary Spina Back in 1966, I was drafted into the Army. The first week was “Orientation,” or “Yelling and Screaming at the Young Recruits” week. Whatever they called it, most of it’s lost in a blur of memory now. All I know is, that whole first week I enjoyed the luxury of eely seven…

by Gary Spina When Jesus said: “You will always have the poor,” I’m sure he included the homeless. I’m just a poet, among other things. I write poems and songs both serious and humorous.

Burnt-up-flag-400x711

by Gary Spina America and the western world rail against the atrocities of Islam. We shudder at the public executions, the beheadings, the sexual slavery, the mass genocide of “infidels,” the stoning of women, the Christian crucifixions, and the skinning alive and burying alive and of innocent men and women. The horrors are encompassed and…

Tuesday’s Election

Editor’s Note: I agree with you Gary until you get to the point of not voting. I hope people will give Republicans another chance. It’s our only chance to save the Republic.
