Just waiting for the pot to boil

The Way I See It by DON WEST We’ve talked about it, we’ve suggested it, we’ve agonized over it, and we have even attempted it. Maybe some of the attempts are still in progress, but we haven’t made the great push to accomplish the task. I am speaking about taking our country back from those […]

Please keep Christ in your Christmas
