By Laurie Higgins   |   10.14.21

By Laurie Higgins   |   10.04.21

Losing Our Religion
By Laurie Higgins   |   09.29.21
The Left seeks to control our language in order to control culture by making it impossible to express ideas they detest. They seek both to ban words and to determine how terms are used.

By Laurie Higgins   |   09.20.21
On September 14, State Representative Cassidy, filed a bill in response to the Texas Heartbeat Act.

By Laurie Higgins   |   09.15.21
