Future COVID-19 relief bills must prioritize community gyms

At the start of a new year, millions of Americans make resolutions to prioritize their health and fitness. But for many, that will be more difficult as their neighborhood gyms have struggled to stay in business throughout the pandemic.

Impeachment charade hurts all of America

The left will get its pound of flesh. If anything characterizes how Democrats and their cohorts in the left-leaning media work, it's that phrase -- and it's that phrase's meaning that's being played out with the current impeachment push against President Donald Trump.

Brady at 43: Breaking records, defying time, winning games

- Associated Press

The greatest ever? Uh, yeah, but was that ever really in doubt? Certainly not after taking down Drew Brees and the Saints on Sunday in the Superdome. Surely not when Brady can still deliver touchdown passes and find a way to win at the age of 43 in the rookie year of his second career at Tampa Bay.

Wear the mask and do as I say

To lean in on the words of Donald John Trump, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is a "swamp" creature, a member of the silent generation who's waded in Washington waters since 1973.

By curbing excesses of the left, Joe Biden can also calm the right

Justice is supposed to be blind, but Americans shouldn't be. Whether carried out by black-clad anarchists or assemblies of flag-wavers, political violence should be dealt in evenhanded rather than selective fashion. If he hopes to restore order in a divided nation, President-elect Joe Biden will need to help unruly factions see clearly that the only proper manner of seeking redress of grievances is peacefully. Given the recent tumult, it won't be easy.

Guardsmen being used by left

As a veteran I have been embarrassed by the slovenly conduct of the National Guard in the Capitol these past few days. They've reportedly been lying around on the floor, not bothering to stand up when a senator enters the room and sleeping on the floor of the Rotunda. I am a one-time missile battery commander and I am appalled and angered at this behavior.

Electoral College unfair at state level, too

The purpose of electoral voting is to provide fairness in electing the president by granting states a proportionate say in the election process. Otherwise, a few populous states would dictate the outcome of the election, irrespective of how people in states throughout the whole country voted. Well, we have seen the voting maps and we can make the same observations at the state level.

Turn to, not on fellow Americans

When I was a college student, the most impressive thing I learned was in a philosophy course. The professor told us that a philosopher by the name of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was well-known for saying that, at present, humankind is at the emotional, mental/psychological and spiritual developmental level of a 12-year-old child, but would one-day evolve into "adulthood."
