My Two Cents: A Nation Divided

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – This article is strictly my opinion and does NOT reflect the opinion of the staff, management or sponsors of Clarksville Online and it’s partners.

I’ve just finished watching President Trump’s speech from the oval office.  I watched it online and watched in horror the HATE that has consumed this country and is perpetuated by all of us in some form or fashion. 

I’m no expert and I’m not trying to change the world, I’m just trying to enjoy life, my family, my grandsons and my faith. I want ALL of us to do good, to be healthy, happy and fulfilled.

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – At President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, he invited a very important guest from our own Clarksville, TN. We all know that any person who signs up for the armed services already exhibits an extraordinary character.

The sacrifice that they, and their families, make to serve our country is beyond measure. Through their commitment to protecting our nation, we are forever in their debt. America is the greatest country on earth, but it can only remain so because of the selfless acts of those who serve in our military.

Marsha Blackburn: This Week From Washington – January 27th, 2018

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – As many of you know, last Friday at midnight, the government shut down. The Democrats in the Senate showed their constituents, and every American, that they chose to forgo funding for our military, our elderly, and our children in order to fulfill their political agenda.

And if you remember, this was an agenda that President Trump was very clear on. The President told the Democrats that if they wanted a DACA deal, then they had to come to the negotiation table. Once there was funding for the border wall, an end to chain migration, and an end of the visa lottery system, President Trump would allow a DACA deal.

My Two Cents: The NFL

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – We’re a little over a week from the NFL’s premier event, the Super Bowl.  It’s been a tumultuous year for the sports league that has its own day of the week.

The controversy started with former San Francisco Giant quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.  Other players started doing the same thing.  They each gave their reasons for the protest, but the insult was not taken lightly by fans.
