Time to show extra compassion

Ramazan (Ramadan in Turkish) is a time of extending a hand of mercy and compassion to those in need. During these very difficult times, we, the Turkish-American community, have been showing just such compassion to our health care providers, first responders and food pantries.

Men can be abuse victims, too

It is good to help survivors of domestic abuse and to fund anti-violence programs. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) needs some revision, but not necessarily the kind envisioned by House Democrats ("Police, advocates: Strict stay-at-home orders put domestic violence victims in tougher situation," Web, May 6).

Already banned on sidewalks, outlawed indoors and pooh-poohed by polite society, that gob of saliva and lord-knows-what-else is done mucking up sports.

Already banned on sidewalks, outlawed indoors and pooh-poohed by polite society, that gob of saliva and Lord-knows-what-else is done mucking up sports. In the wake of the new coronavirus, teams are revoking the germ-landing privileges that turned dugouts, benches, boxing rings and even grass fields into potential biohazard sites.

COVID-19 puts spotlight on science -- but scientists often lie

- The Washington Times

We can beat COVID-19 -- just trust the science, we're told. Trust in the scientists, we're told. Well and good. Fine and dandy. But fact is, scientists often lie. Science isn't always the beacon toward truth. It's not just frequently flawed; it's frequently deceptive. And purposely so.

Okie wisdom is pure gold

The bottom line for us in Oklahoma is that we are a people of hard work and hard truths. We try our best to model both of these virtues in thought, word and deed as we go about our daily lives.

How we prevented COVID-19 cases at Liberty University

Looking back over our plan to prevent COVID-19 cases at Liberty University while simultaneously prioritizing the needs of students who lacked the resources and accommodations to weather the storm, we seemed to have struck the perfect balance.

Illinois governor a mind-boggling blot to religious freedom

- The Washington Times

The governor of Illinois -- the Democratic governor of Illinois, J.B. Pritzker -- made an astonishing announcement just recently that went like this: Due to Covid-19, churches may have to remain closed for a year. A year. Dear Churches of America: This is why you don't cave to government -- ever. Give an inch, government takes a mile.

A sign in the widow of The Framing Gallery shows they are closed due to the new coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, Thursday, May 7, 2020. The U.S. government is poised to report the worst set of job numbers since record-keeping began in 1948, a stunning snapshot of the toll the coronavirus has taken on a now-shattered economy.

Coronavirus: What if we never closed for business?

When the coronavirus began to spread all over the United States, the reaction was different from state to state. The decisions being made by governors and state legislatures were not always consistent with the message coming out of the CDC and the coronavirus task force in Washington. Different rules and restrictions applied depending on where you lived.

Southern California sheriff takes heroic stand for citizen freedom

- The Washington Times

A sheriff in Southern California, Chad Bianco of Riverside County, told local supervisors earlier this week that he wouldn't enforce stay-at-home orders because, get this, he thinks citizens can think for themselves. Move over, doctors. Step aside, nurses. Bianco is much more a real hero -- not just someone doing his job

Did COVID-19 prevent World War III? Or did the virus prepare us for it?

For months after the attacks of 9/11, when people would be asked, "What did you learn?" they invariably responded, "Spend more time with family." That answer has reverberated in my mind throughout these two months of idyllic scenes of parents and children jumping on trampolines, riding bicycles and walking dogs.

Right bears brunt of blame

The political left's hatred toward President Trump is becoming increasingly destructive. Leftist politicians have abandoned negotiation, compromise and humility. They are determined to change and cast America into their mold -- and design no matter how often they need to trample on the Constitution to achieve this end.
