America’s budding tyrants

From the Nazis to the Stalinists, tyrants have always started out supporting free speech, and why is easy to understand. Speech is vital for the realization of their goals of command, control and confiscation. Basic to their agenda are the tools of indoctrination, propagandizing, proselytization. Once they gain power, as leftists have at many universities, free speech becomes a liability and must be suppressed. This is increasingly the case on university campuses.

THE VA FIASCO

OPINION: Ditch the new EPA water rules

In 1972 the Clean Water Act (CWA) was passed with a goal of improving water quality across the nation. To achieve this goal the CWA established a system of cooperative federalism that preserves primary state authority over land and water uses, but prohibits certain "discharges" into "navigable waters" from a "point source" unless authorized by federal permit. The law states that "navigable waters" are "waters of the U.S." Two sections of the law have particular impacts on agriculture. Section 404 allows the Corps to issue permits for discharges of "dredge and fill" material into navigable waters. This section deals ...

Our thoughts on Memorial Day

"The United States and the freedom, for which it stands, the freedom for which they died, must endure and prosper. Their lives remind us that freedom is not bought cheaply. It has a cost; it imposes a burden. And just as they whom we commemorate were willing to sacrifice, so too must we - in a less final, less heroic way - be willing to give of ourselves."

Decorating the dead

Memorial Day is a special day, a day to reminisce, a time to mourn, and an occasion to praise the men and women that fought and died for our hard-earned freedoms. Originally dubbed Decoration Day to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died during the Civil War, the term 'Memorial Day' as we now know it was first used in 1882. Even more common after WWII, the expression became official by Federal law in 1967.
