            THE REAL MEANING OF PEACE There once was a King who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The King looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and he had to choose between them. One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for the peaceful towering mountains all around. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace. The other...
  • Former Green Beret Charged In The Death Of Suspected Taliban Bomb Maker.

    A former Green Beret who told Fox News in 2016 that he killed a suspected Taliban bomb maker nearly a decade ago during combat operations in Afghanistan is now being charged in the man’s death -- a move his lawyer says is an act of betrayal by the Army. The murder charge facing Maj. Matthew Golsteyn comes after years of on-and-off investigations by the Army following an incident said to have taken place during his 2010 deployment. A military tribunal that probed the killing years ago initially cleared Golsteyn -- but the investigation into him was re-opened after he spoke...

    President Trump threatened Tuesday to have the military “build the remaining sections” of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, appearing to revive a call to use Pentagon money to finish the project ahead of a meeting with congressional Democratic leaders opposed to the president’s funding request. For their part, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer put out a joint statement Monday arguing Trump and his party will own a government shutdown if they can’t strike a deal. “People do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built. If the...

    President Donald Trump sought Tuesday to pressure Democratic congressional leaders into supporting his demand for billions of dollars to build his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, threatening to have the military build it “if Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country.” Trump tweeted the threat hours before Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi were to meet with Trump at the White House in an effort to avert a partial government shutdown on Dec. 21, when funding for some agencies is scheduled to expire. In a series of tweets Tuesday, Trump...

            THE PARABLE OF THE FENCE Once upon a time there was a little boy who was talented, creative, handsome, and extremely bright...a natural leader. The kind of person everyone would normally have wanted on their team or project. But he was also self-centered and had a very bad temper. When he got angry, he usually said, and often did, some very hurtful things. In fact, he seemed to have little regard for those around him...even friends. So, naturally, he had few. "But," he told himself, "that just shows how stupid most people are!" As he...

    The State funerals of Senator, John McCain & FLOTUS, Barbara Bush were proper and dignified, but they were not responded to by large segments of the American people as they should have been. Again, my belief that at the end of life one "reaps, what one sows" and when the First family of POTUS, Donald J. Trump was not officially invited to either funeral, it diminished these two events drastically. However, the Bush family, with great dignity, sense of history and respect, on the passing of Ex-POTUS, George H.W. Bush recognized the need for all of the present and Ex-Presidents...

The USS Lexington was ferrying aircraft to Midway, and the USS Saratoga and USS...

    Long before he was president, George H.W. Bush spent some time in Minnesota. During World War ll, Bush trained as a fighter pilot at the Naval Air Station in Minneapolis next to the airport. A plane Bush flew in 1943 is on display at the Wings of the North Air Museum in Eden Prairie. The plane is even autographed by the Navy veteran. "People can read about history and when they come to the museum it really brings it to life," Bill Norris, with Wings of the North Museum said. "We know that he (Bush) wrote home to his mother...
