Constitution not to be toyed with

Andrew P. Napolitano's "U.S. Constitution shredded by dangerous elected officials" (Web, May 6) is outstanding. In his past few columns, Mr. Napolitano has regained his lucid defense of conservative values in articulating the textual essence that the Constitution says what it means and means what it says.

Celebrating Mother's Day in a time of quarantine

It's Mother's Day once again, but oh so different from 2019. No chance of taking mom out to her favorite restaurant and enjoying a family meal together to toast the lady. But despite lockdowns and quarantines, there are options. You won't be able to sit in a restaurant, but many restaurants offer carry out and delivery for special Mother's Day menus.

New York COVID-19 numbers make clear it's time to reopen America

- The Washington Times

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in recent televised press conference that the majority of COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state came from the stay-at-home set, not the out-and-about set -- meaning, once again, the government's projections, predictions, forecasts and conclusions on the coronavirus were, gasp, wrong.

COVID-19 bringing devastating groupthink consequences

- The Washington Times

The most damaging and lasting effects of COVID-19 on America won't be so much ones of physical or medical as they will be mental. Where Americans once thought for themselves, the government has taken control. Where Americans once decided on their own, bureaucrats have seized the reins.

Most federal workers not 'swamp'

The vast majority of federal government workers are members of the civil service, not members of the "swamp." They display no political bias as they fulfill the duties assigned to them. Their mission is to support the American people and implement the laws of the land.

Re-evaluate cash-sucker programs

President Reagan once said that the closest thing to eternal life is a federal program. Unfortunately, once it's started it is rarely evaluated, and unexpected results may be causing more damage than could ever have been anticipated. Two examples are the federal highway construction programs and the welfare programs.

President Trump's new Executive Order on Securing the United States Bulk-Power System of May 1, together with his Executive Order on Coordinating National Resilience to Electromagnetic Pulses of March 26, 2019, may well be the most important acts of his presidency.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has extended her stay-at-home order until May 15, which will exacerbate the total disruption of Michigan's economy and workforce.
