Trump fights, she wrote. Don’t be silly. Trump was talked into bombing the Iranian General Soleimani by his war hawks like Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense Esper who were looking to make Trump the president who is doing much better than Obama at killing killer Iranian generals like Soleimani, who allegedly had his finger on the button ready to blow up several sites in Iraq where Americans are concentrated.

On Monday, I took some time out to watch the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade and listen to local people talk about what King meant to them and why they honor him today.

I have been reading “The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers” by Maxwell King for the past few weeks. There are 363 pages of narrative, and I’m on page 204 right now. I wonder if I’m reading it so slowly just because I don’t want it to end. I want to live in Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.

Fake News – the deliberate dissemination of falsehoods posing as legitimate news items – is on everyone’s lips these days, but there has been precious little comment from admitted Fake Newsmen.

Before the dust even began to settle from Gov. Greg Abbott’s attacks on Austin about its policies toward homelessness, he stirred up more controversy by announcing he’s not going to allow resettlement of refugees in Texas.

What shape is the church of the Lord in today? Have we continued on the narrow pathway leading unto salvation? Or, have we crossed over to the broad way that leads to destruction by imitating the world and taking part in her sinfulness once again? Many in the Church in Corinth were found much in compromise by the Apostle Paul in the time of his letters unto the church there.

When browsing in a bookstore, I’m sure certain titles grab your attention and you read the back cover because you want to know more about what the book is about. The same is true for most people who research their direction before they begin traveling on a journey because they want to know more about where they are going.

One can call Trump anything, but be careful when addressing President Obama. I want always to speak with a wholesome tongue to educate good people to understand that hatred in identity name calling politics never solves any problem, only further divides in feel good division.

The ballots are in, people have spoken, and the 2020 Best of Del Rio annual people’s choice awards is entering a new phase. Starting today, you will find a new ballot in the paper with the same categories as before, but now the options to choose from are limited to three — sometimes four.

Laughlin Air Force Base and the community of Del Rio have a long standing relationship of serving the country while interweaving with the history of South Texas, ever since the opening of the military training facility and since its naming after Lt. Jack Thomas Laughlin, the first pilot from Del Rio to be killed during World War II.

Pray in the Spirit, in your most holy faith! Don’t allow the devil to steal what God has given you! Let your understanding be from God, and not from man! The things of God are spiritually discerned. God gives good gifts to His children. The gifts of God are irrevocable. Allow the Spirit of God to lead you as the Great Shepherd who cares for His flock. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in all who are in Christ bodily. Understand that we are His workmanship, and He promises to complete that work for all that continue to call upon the name of the Lord!

We all love to sit down to a good meal. Whatever our favorite food, we really look forward to enjoying the things we love. After our appetite is satisfied, it doesn’t take but a few hours and we are hungry again, but we seldom consider that our spiritual life functions in much the same way.

Ms. Ford appeared to me a prevaricating, sad person. If this was decided by Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Strozk, leadership, all part of Obama/Clinton justice leadership, Kavanaugh would never be confirmed to the court. He was never one of them, bought, packaged and controlled.

THAT EGG you had for breakfast this morning was one of about 450 a typical factory laying hen produces in its short life. Starting at the age of four months, those hens lay about an egg a day until they are considered depleted at the age 18 to 20 months. That’s significantly better than broiler chickens, which reach slaughter weight at eight weeks, but far worse than the 5-year life span of a farm bred chicken. Depleted laying hens are slaughtered, and their flesh enters the secondary food market ending up as chicken nuggets and other processed chicken items. A typical egg factory will produce 1 million 12-egg cartons each year.

The evangelicals went whole hog for “Tiberius the Dumb,” perhaps thinking him a sort of savior come to “Make America great again.” But while I have no statistics, my gut feeling is that at least some evangelicals are having second thoughts about Tiberius as a God sent.

Open your wallet right now. What cards do you find? Most folks have a driver’s license, right? Then there are the military ID, school ID, work ID cards. You probably have multiple insurance cards – health, auto, life, home, Medicare. How about a debit card or some other bank card? And I’ll bet you have more than one credit card, too. I hope you have a voter registration card and plan to vote Tuesday.

Taco Bell is the best Mexican restaurant in America.

That stark, unblinking statement of fact is the conclusion of the Harris Poll, the annual rating of the most popular brands in the country. It is based on exhaustive questioning of more than 77,000 consumers, representing all demographics and cutting through all strata of American society.
