REDEFINING STARS, HEROES, FAMERS

Spoiled Money-Grabbers, Unwanted Quarterback

By Harry M. Covert

It’s timely to jump into the razzmatazz concerning the poor professional gridders, so victimized in their millionaire paydays for cavorting up and down playing a game. And living large.

The players are so offended by the president’s criticism that some of the put-upons won’t stand for our National Anthem. These spoiled money-grabbers love adoration for their running up and down the fields.

A high court judge in my hometown, who happened to be a Sunday school teacher, told this story of an army sergeant named Robert Wolfguts who sought a name change.… Read More

TIME FOR HAND WRINGING IS OVER

End Game Coming When Tweets Don’t Work

By Harry M. Covert
All the “message sending” bombarding North Korea appear delaying the  inevitable.  From all the threats of nuclear attempts, escalating missiles and tail wagging the “big dog” apparently there are no tweets reaching Pyongyang.

Quite naturally no one wants war, military intervention or destruction of the rogue regime. But that time is approaching.  And rapidly.
Evidence is mounting by the moment that the United States once again will have to solve the situation. Young Americans are on duty and ready to take the call. It probably won’t pretty.

President Trump gives the word Sunday

The question for all is how long is the free world supposed to suffer waiting for the bombs to fall on free people?… Read More
