    Amazing! I heard Good Shepherd had a nurse that was sick with Cocid19. They told her to o to work anyway. Now 18 patients there have Covid19 and the count will go up.

      Your numbers are off, there are over 50 positive COVID patients there. Good luck getting a test- whoever wants one can get one! Try calling because you were exposed, testing is booked solid for more than a week out.

    The people who want to change the American way of life, our constitution and our freedoms, are actually trying to destroy the things that give them the right to demonstrate the way they choose. If they were in any other country, especially a marxist or communist run country, they would be imprisoned or killed. They also obviously don’t know the history about Karl Marx and how many of his own people he killed. Millions

      They would be a heck of a lot smarter if their parents would invest some time in encouraging and helping them with school work. Reading to them would also help. Most homes today subscribe to no magazines, have fewer than 5 books in the home and the parents read to their kids “once in a while” whatever the hell that means.

    Children are being indoctrinated at a very young age to hate America ( without benefit of how wonderful this country is and how much the world needs America!) God has been taken out of schools and some pastors are more concerned with trends rather than Bible verse. Parents have either given up and are entrusting teachers or don’t have information to teach. ..

    Children are definitely not taught about our history and all the people who died giving us our freedom. That our flag and anthem stands for the millions of people of all colors died to give us such a magnificent country. Now the Dumbercrats and their puppets from their basements are trying to destroy our country. RED WAVE AND LANDSLIDE PRESIDENT TRUMP…

    So apparently we cannot point out that black lives taken by those who are not cops matter, even though those deaths are far more common. Because it’s all about police brutality. But it’s not — the BLM rubric has come to include everything from removing statues to reparations..

      He spends 12 hours a day watching tv and tweeting. He also golfs, holds political rallies on the public dime, and checks his approval ratings. He doesn’t like briefings especially ones he has to read. Remember he is guy who knows more about everything than anyone else.

    We cannot, and should not, tear down every historical monument in this country that offends. It does a great disservice in understanding, learning from, and appreciating our great complex, and imperfect history. We should teach history – not destroy history, so that future generations learn the lessons of the past so they are not doomed to repeat its past mistakes, but also grow and build on its triumphs, which included ending slavery at the horrific cost of 600,000 of our fellow countrymen.

    How is it possible that the man responsible for freeing the slaves – President Abraham Lincoln, would be linked to white supremacy? Vandals and rioters recently graffitied the front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., and are now attempting to tear down the Emancipation Memorial in D.C. as well, which depicts President Lincoln holding the Emancipation Proclamation and freeing an African-American slave. This memorial was funded by freed slaves.

    “Born 1809, died 1865. Lincoln held the nation together during its greatest trial, the Civil War. Lincoln believed his most sacred duty was the preservation of the union. It was his firm conviction that slavery must be abolished. Gutzon Borglum chose Lincoln to represent the preservation of the United States.
