It's time to get back to the real world

Note to an arrogant fisherman

Democrats left to clean up shambles

Divisiveness must end or we perish

Violence at capitol was planned

Let's get back to the real world

Corporations say we're insignificant

May the purge be with you

To The Eagle: I saw a movie where Comrades greeted each other saying "May the force be with you." Comrades in our government must have seen it too. But their greeting is now "May the purge be with you." I seem to recall hearing about other...

 

Politics a barrel of laughs

To The Eagle: My, how quickly things change. For the past four years, McConnell, Graham, Cruz and many other politicos have been waxing poetic about Donald Trump. Of a sudden it seems, fueled by what appears to have been a botched coup attempt or at...

 

A gift we can all use

We're in for a soggy winter

To The Eagle: According to the Scottish thesaurus, highlanders have 421 words to describe snow. You’d think we’d have quite a few words for rain but apparently one word is enough for the likes of us. We just add a lot of adjectives in front of...
