    Going to a bank to get a loan should be an easy process if you have everything ready to go. Getting that loan from a bank, especially when you have business experience, good credit, and references, and proven success should be an easy process, and most banks will tout how easy it is to quali…

      Although everyone would like to see the senseless, horrific gun violence in schools stopped, thus far we have been unable to reach consensus as to how to go about doing it. I don’t pretend to have the answers, but I do know one thing. Arming teachers, as Ohio voted to do on Monday, June 13, …

        The assumption we keep hearing is that anyone who isn’t for gun control just doesn’t care. It’s all about the gun, not root causes or what measures could be taken to prevent tragedy. Instead, they focus on taking away the personal, equalizing defense a gun provides the law-abiding and vulnerable.

          What was supposed to be a big “bang" turned out to be nothing but a little “fizzle.” The Democrats have been promoting the coming of new information about the Jan. 6 "insurrection" that happened 18 months ago, something so big and new that the country would change dramatically. Instead, the …

            I, and many like me, do not like the nomenclature associated with the Senate's proposed "red flag" law. While the co-authors of the bill claim it is not a federal red flag law, utilizing this name at the state level is merely a segue into a federal law. And we all know that if the Democrats …

              In his book “The Brethren,” reporter Bob Woodward wrote that Justice Harry Blackmun’s draft of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion decision was so flawed that one Blackmun law clerk upon reviewing it, ”was astonished” at its lack of constitutional foundation. Other clerks privately…

                As co-chairs of the Black Hawk Grundy Mental Health Center-UnityPoint Health Breakfast on May 13, we were overwhelmed at the community support with record number of 700 attending.

                Once again we are faced with the fact there are too many guns. Gun laws that aren't enforced, politicians who gut the current gun laws and for the simple reason we have politicians who have their pockets stuffed with money from the NRA and gun rights lobby. The political power of these group…

                The Nazis murdered nearly 6 million during the Holocaust. The U.S. has its own Holocaust (reported by the CDC), more than 63 million babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade.

                We are all upset today. It seems our remedies and solutions take too much time because of the wrong direction of one political party. We have a primary coming up and have one candidate with the military stature that we need today. One thing that you could do to send a clear message to that p…

                In early February I submitted my federal tax return by mail. That appears to have been a great mistake, as it has now been six months and I have been totally unable to access the status of my very large and needed refund. I have been unable to find if they have even received my return.

                We can all agree that housing is essential! We're amongst a shortage of accessible and affordable housing, and creates turmoil in the disability community when seeking it out. Due to the rigged economy, shortage of accessible/affordable housing, affordable health care and rising costs of liv…

                The definition of life is: The property or quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and inanimate matter, manifested in functions such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, and response to stimuli or adaption to the environment originating from the organism. When a sper…

                This industry is physically demanding, and can be life-threatening because of the use of heavy machinery. That’s not the only danger farmers face, however.

                I recently did some digging into “restrictive covenants”. These were legally binding agreements among home owners or stipulations by homebuilders forbidding the sale of a home or tract of land to anyone from a particular racial group.

                In the debate over guns, we hear a lot about "law-abiding" gun owners. My question is, are you really a "law-abiding" owner if you are unwilling to accept reasonable regulations on your ownership that protect the public? To be a truly law-abiding car driver, I not only have to drive safely m…

                As the smoldering heap of wreckage from the progressive left in D.C. grows larger and more discouraging by the day, every person in Iowa can see why this November is absolutely critical. We desperately need to elect strong, effective, patriotic leaders who will challenge the Left at every tu…

                Hello! May I introduce you to U.S. Rep. Ashley Hinson. She is a wife, a mother of two boys, formerly an anchor for KCRG-TV, and is now seeking reelection on Nov. 8 in House District 2.

                The book, “Credibility,” lists honesty as its No. 1 attribute. Whether in personal relationships, business, politics, or education, once a person sells out to dishonesty, one’s credibility is likely permanently damaged; i.e., if you hurt your credibility, it will hurt you back.

                "Insult to God?" Quoting the Old Testament "only" is an insult! He sent his son Jesus Christ showing his love for mankind that "no one" should perish. I don't see our government or schools implementing these truths. Stop relying on government for sound laws! They have done more harm than goo…

                Nineteen more of our children killed, and still Republicans refuse to pass gun regulations. Republicans will never regulate the hell of wartime assault rifles because gun manufacturers give them too much money and power.

                More mass shooting of our children. Isn't it time to do something? How long is this going to be allowed to continue? When, where will be the next one? Maybe someone in your own family will be shot, or maybe do the shooting.
