OPINION:Is God Testing America


I thought I would write on this subject to get some feedback from our readers.  Is America being tested or is the world just falling apart? It seems as though every day something new is happening around the world.  The wars we are fighting in the middle east and the earth quakes in Japan, the tsunamis all over the world, floods, tornados, hurricanes, people killing each other and so on. The point that I’m trying to make is every time there is a world disaster, the U.S. is there to help. We are spending billions on wars to keep the peace all over the world but America has a problem.

Opinion:Whose Foreign Policy Caused The Problem?

Thomas Benigno / Past SJC Republican Central Committee Member

The real story is that Republicans of the past did good things for the communities in which they represented. They supported business and education and the rule of law.

The short lived war that Bush I launched would come back to bite his son’s administration. Continue reading
