Kokomo Tribune

---- — Our great nationwill be no more

I have looked at our great nation being torn apart more and more every year. Do people not see what is happening right before our eyes?

Homosexuals wanting to marry? Look at the way God made men and women different so that we could naturally reproduce. No nation will survive with a homosexual population.

The borders will have to be closed; we can’t afford to take care of the rest of the world.

We murder more than a million babies every year, and no one says anything. But let someone get shot with a gun, and then some people want to take away one of the greatest tools invented by man. Come on, people, think about it!

People have let the government pay their way through life. You can never improve one’s life by giving them money. I believe in charity given by me, not the government taking my money that I worked hard for and giving it to people who just don’t want to work! If the government had to live within a budget, then we would not be passing down to our children and grandchildren the mess we are in.

All of the above things I have talked about can be taken care of with one little word called “morality”! Can you think of many of our leaders with any morals whatsoever?

Let’s not forget the idiots who want to make drugs legal.

All of these problems would be taken care of if we would just turn toward God and not away from him!

Johnny Unitas: ‘oneof the greatest’ QBs

I had the good fortune to receive an industrial engineering degree in 1956 from the University of Dayton.

Whereas the school, from an athletic perspective, was better known for its achievements on the basketball floor, a memorable football game was played in the ’50s, at home, against the University of Louisville.

We were favored by two or three touchdowns. Unfortunately for the Dayton Flyers, the Cardinals had a quarterback named John Unitas, whom I had never heard of.

We lost the game by two or three touchdowns.

The performance of Johnny U was spectacular. It left an indelible mark in my memory and, believe me, that says a lot. I’ve been involved with sports one way or another for a good part of my life, and have witnessed the play of some of the greatest athletes.

You can take this statement to the bank: John Unitas is one of the greatest of all time.
