    Laura Bush Weighs in on the Immigration Situation

    Hello, pot! It's kettle. You're black!! This is a great video and I really enjoy Styx's channel. He does a good time giving equal thought to both sides of these issues. Most of the time, he's hard to pin down, so I appreciate that he's not completely biased when commenting on issues.

    Tips on being a good country neighbor

    Living in the country almost requires us to be good neighbors even if people end up hating their neighbors.

    Who Would Steal Food From Children?

    That is so disappointing. I don't believe it was an accident or someone just "not thinking". "Not thinking" is grabbing Windex when you really meant to grab the olive oil, spray it on the skillet, and don't realize what you've done with dinner!! This was no accident. That's what is so awful...

    After reaching 65F it is back to 15F this morning.

    This winter has been very strong so far, unlike last year. It's unheard of for local school to be closed two days in a row for inclement weather. Never seen anything like this before.

    Why Is Donald Trump Hated By Liberal Media?

    He's hated because 1) he's an effective Republican; 2) he knows the game of the press and is a master of the game; 3) the liberal press has never covered anyone quite like Trump before. They don't intimidate him, which is a reaction the press is not accustomed to handling.

    Obama library will not have books

    No physical books or books will all be digital? I'm an English teacher. I'm pained by the movement of phasing out physical books. There's no feeling like a book in the hand, the smell of pages, the feel of the cover. That's going to be lost one day soon, I'm afraid.

    Trump: Racist or Man With Balls?

    The White House did not deny that Trump used the phrase "shithole countries" when referring to African nations and Haiti. Would love to know how forum folks feel about this.
