Build the wall, the fence, the barrier, or whatever name members of Congress believe is necessary to get the job done and please, please end the shutdown. more
People who know Rocky Adkins best know that beneath his awe-shucks, country boy persona is a keen political intellect that should have his opponents in this year’s Democratic gubernatorial primary plenty worried. more
The General Assembly kicked off Tuesday with the typical pomp and circumstance expected on day one of a regular session after an election. There was a sense of joy from the new members as they introduced family members for incumbents, freshman representatives, and plenty of time in recess for pictures. more
Take a moment to consider just 18 words enshrined in the First Amendment where it is written, “…the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Although simple words, our Founders fought a war of independence, and put their lives, property and futures at risk to guarantee all Americans the right to peacefully assemble and petition the government to redress their grievances. more
