Turning in lost purse an admirable deed

I would like to sincerely thank the honest person who picked up my purse in the Winn Dixie parking lot and took it to the service counter in the Palmetto store on Feb. 21. I am very grateful to you and to the person at customer service for returning it to me entirely intact. Very admirable indeed!

So why were evangelicals enticed to vote for the least popular, least qualified and most controversial candidate in history? The answer was trumpeted in churches across America — to take ownership of marriage and abortion rights.

Liberals’ disdain for Trump feeding false narrative

It’s obvious why millions reject conservatism, scoff at patriotism and, instead, accept the debilitating persuasions of liberalism and secularism. The reason’s clear if one is addicted to CNN’s derisive commentators, and op-ed “slush” in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post. Those news outlets are the pipers for all anti-conservative propaganda.
