Schultz-Becker plan

Dear Chris, I appreciate Congressman Graves’s championing of job creation for pipe-fitters, welders, mechanics and electricians in his Letter to the Editor and message to constituents last week. I don’t know how many of those Keystone pipeline jobs would have employed Missourians, but I do believe there is a viable  alternative for job creation.   It’s […]

Not Losing is a Loser’s Game

by Dr. Earl Tilford The Obama administration’s weak and failing Middle East policy—the struggle against ISIS and the ultimate fate of the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria—revolves around a non-strategy of avoiding a major foreign-policy debacle in the 15 months remaining before a new president takes office. But it’s too late. Russia and Iran calling […]

Growing Number of Indicators Highlight Need to Revamp Federal Education Policy

By Mike Lodewegen, Missouri Association of School Administrators After more than a decade of federal intrusion into our local education policies, it is time for Congress to overhaul the system that is limiting student success across the country. Passed in 2001 under President George W. Bush’s administration, the law commonly known as No Child Left […]

Stem Cell Research at the University of Missouri – What are we trying to accomplish?

The main focus of my laboratory over the last six years and the reason why we use induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and human embryonic stem cells (ESC), is to study preclampsia, a common disease that affects more than 1 in 20 pregnancies.  In these pregnancies, the mother develops high blood pressure, excessive protein in […]

Energy-Rich Nation

Dear Friend, America is an energy-rich nation that acts like an energy-poor nation. Radical policies have prevented us from taking advantage of all the natural resources at our disposal, forcing us to rely on countries like Russia and Iran. That has to change. As you may know, the US placed a ban on oil exports in […]

Lightning Hit My Heart

Seems like Bernie Sanders made quite a stir when he spoke at Liberty University recently.  Following a story from my online news feed,  I found a fascinating post by a double-degreed LU graduate who’s not only a bona fide credentialed pastor but also a clinical psychologist serving in Las Vegas.  His first name is Jim […]

Operation: Local Stumble

I learned early in my Army training that successful operations depended upon well-trained capable personnel, strong leadership, and a supportive Chain of Command.  Most obstacles can be overcome with these assets in-place.  Recently it came to my attention what my volunteer efforts were not receiving. An organization that I have been supporting was planning an […]

Do Not Kill Police Officers, Black People, White People or Any People

By Glenn Mollette I had never heard of Chicago suburb Fox Lake police officer Joe Gliniewicz.  Recently, three men murdered him. Sadly I now know about what a great man, and police officer he was. Could this be a good time to reinstate the sixth commandment? You might know it better as “Thou Shalt Not […]

Playing the Trump Card

I used to be quite a nice guy.  Yeah, at least in my own humble, but usually right, even far right, opinion.  I was like Mr. Rogers in The Neighborhood’s next door neighbor.  But recently a new phenomenon has appeared on the American scene.  That has made me rethink my suave and debonair manner.  I […]

The Trumpenstein Monster

For at least 30-plus years the GOP has pushed a white supremacy agenda to divide and conquer the electorate. Lee Atwater wrote that since outright racial slurs weren’t selling the party platform like hotcakes anymore, they needed to switch to code words all too well known today as dog whistles – meaning anything liberals approved.
