A 30th Letter to America
- By Manuel Ybarra, Jr. - Coalgate, OK
The Mayflower pilgrims in Heaven, would be astonished, at American’s present-day attitude towards God, the Word of God, and his precious Son Jesus.
Their strong beliefs in God and Christianity were expressed in the Mayflower Compact. In that Compact, they said they did it, “for the glory of God and advancement of the Christian Faith,” and signed “in the presence of God.”
Over half of those pilgrims who landed on the western side of Cape Cod Bay in mid-December, 1620, died that winter, because of poor nutrition and harsh living conditions. Because of their faith in God and Jesus they went to Heaven.

Observation of a First Grade Teacher on Socialism
- By Johnnelle Raines - Pickens, SC
I have an observation I think proves our nation is indeed in trouble and leaning heavily toward socialism.
When I first began my teaching career in 1974 as a first-grade teacher, I always read aloud daily to my students. The Ant and the Grasshopper and The Little Red Hen were two favorites that the students loved to hear.
After I read these books aloud, I would always ask for what the students thought the author was trying to teach us ... what was his/her main idea?

"Smart" is Destroying America
- By Michelle Mancini - Bluffton, SC
Smart electric water and gas meters have been, and are being installed on homes and businesses without individuals informed consent. These meters are health, privacy and safety hazards that violate our Fourth Amendment. With “smart," everything you do is sent to a data bank.
If “smart” meters were in our best interest, they would sell themselves and would not have communities around the world resisting or states and municipalities here legislating against them. There would be no need to coerce the public for their installation. There would be transparency instead of secrecy.

An Adorable Deplorable Speaks
- By Frank Hall - Greenville, SC
In 1936 my friend Howard had an opportunity to acquire a newspaper route. The “Great Depression” was nearing an end, but jobs were still very scarce, so Howard jumped at the chance without considering possible undesirable consequences. During the summer months Howard’s family liked to go on fishing trips at least once every week. Now Howard couldn’t go with them as he had to deliver his papers. Like a good friend should, I learned Howard’s route and substituted for him on family trip days so he could go, too.

The Hypocrisy of Border/Children/Family Separation
- By John H. Utz - Greenville, SC
The "marching-in-the-streets" and rallies over the (so-called) separation of children from their parents, glorified by the MSM, is raw ‘democracy’ in action.
The truth of the issue is that there is hypocrisy at every turn. For instance,
1) Where was the anger over the last 5-10-15 years, particularly in the Obama years, where President Obama ignored existing law and encouraged illegal (family and youth) immigration, with resulting "separations?"
