January 7, 2022 Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the latest cultural fashion: It has been chic for some time to say things about white people that if said about blacks would be branded racist.

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY

Chapter One

by Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews Contributor Most often seen in this week's news is the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

' The Twilight Zone ' aka:...

Living in the Left's Upside Down World

by Bruce Hendry This summarizes a lot of my feelings and confusion over what seems to be happening in our much divided country.

Written while waiting for the Podiatrist, the Ophthalmologist, or was it the Dentist?

By: Joe Ball, Publisher CNBNews Contributor I’m a senior citizen in age, not in activities. I think I’m one of those who fit the expression, “The senior citizens of today often are like the middle-aged of 20 years ago.” It’s good to think that. “Because I fit it.” My wife, Sandy, tells me, however, should I be asked “How old are you?,” to just say,” I don’t give my age.” “People will see you differently if you do,” she adds.

Typically, one answer leads to a series of follow-ups. And- -important…be a good listener. In line with this essay… without too much thinking…I’m noting a few... Read more →

A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort.

Why Businessmen May Be Prone to Drugs

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Life is not a fairy tale, if you lose your shoe at midnight, you’re drunk.

If women are upset at Trump’s naughty words, who in the hell bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray? Jim Comey answered, “I don’t know,” “I don’t recall,” and “I don’t remember” 236 times while under oath. But he remembered enough to write a book. President Trump should nominate Hillary Clinton for the next opening on the supreme court. Then he can finally get her investigated. Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal. No Border Walls. No voter ID laws. You figured it out yet? Chelsea Clinton... Read more →
