Mark Figley: Secret Service should protect Kennedy Jr.

0

America has never been the same since the horrific assassination of John F. Kennedy on what was an otherwise bright and sunny day in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. The fall of Camelot over 60 years ago is still felt across the nation today as questions linger about what role the CIA played in the killing and who was really behind the act.

Mark Figley: Biden could learn from coach Saban

0

Nick Saban shocked the college football world when he announced his retirement at the age of 72 after 28 years as a head coach (17 in Tuscaloosa). He compiled 292 career wins, 16-straight seasons with at least 10 wins, six national titles with Alabama and a seventh at LSU. Saban also coached four Heisman Trophy winners and contributed to 49 players being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Mark Figley: Biden’s bad policy at the border

0

America’s southern border has been an abomination for decades, but it’s now worse than it’s ever been. Tucker Carlson recently summed it up when he said, “Our country is on the brink of collapse with tens of millions of people who shouldn’t be here. We don’t know their identities or the purpose of their being here. It’s stuff that could destroy the country.” Literally.

Mark Figley: Miracles still happen around us every day

While many question the concept of miracles, 34-year-old Ian Snyder of Ferndale, Calif., is not one of them.

Mark Figley: Target deserves bag of coal for Christmas

0

While it’s always a challenge to find that perfect Christmas gift, Target’s LGBTQ-themed Christmas line, which includes a nutcracker figure holding a “Progress Pride” flag wearing a “Pride” hat may not be the ticket. This despite the fact that it’s accompanied by the absolutely smashing slogan, “Show your love and support for the LGBTQIA+ community.”

Mark Figley: Healthy streak of cynicism still intact after COVID

0

While news stories these days are largely centered on Israel’s war with Hamas and a bumbling, stumbling, president who rarely makes any sense, the COVID virus still afflicts us. This fact became all too real when I recently contracted it (despite being previously vaccinated I might add).

Mark Figley: Renaming plan a bird-brained effort

Bird-watchers beware! Just when you thought it was safe to engage in this harmless, age-old hobby, think again.

Mark Figley: American students should be held to account for rash political declarations

0

Following the diabolical October 7 Hamas attack on Israel, America found out just how far its colleges and universities have fallen when it comes to human compassion and understanding of the world at large.

Mark Figley: U.S. must support obliteration of Hamas

0

Like America’s 9/11, history will record that a similar event occurred on 10-7-23 during the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, when 1,500 Hamas terrorists invaded Israel by land, air, and sea in a violent spree which left over 1,000 Israelis dead and another 3,000 wounded.

Mark Figley: What car will you drive? Biden’s choice, not yours

0

Joe Biden is an expert on everything and actually knows what kind of car you should be driving. And while it’s bad enough that new cars have been hard to come by and more expensive for some time, you can expect more of the same if Joe has his way. Heck, he might even destroy the auto industry while he’s at it.
