Dr. Mary E Walker

Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, the first woman to win the Medal of Honor, wore it around her neck for the rest of her life.

My mentor Bill Cornwell told me more times than I can count that he hated lists. You always run the risk of leaving someone out, he said, and making people angry.

Well, he was right, about that and a lot of other things.

Yes. We need to fight against abusive power in government even it is the party you vote for

I don’t see balanced reporting from the facts on abuse of power

Bulldog

And you won't

Funny how these 2 above focus on just 3 words of the entire article. Seems like y’all just want to be angry all the time. Too bad; life’s too short....especially now in light of the failed response to Covid.

Bulldog

So tell us what should have been done differently?

What Natives said @3:44 pm, plus (sound of ) throwing up in my mouth. Bull and PJMB you are disgusting, as usual didn't have anything to say about the CONTENTS (HUH?): the long, difficult fights for women's rights. Maybe talk about Misogyny?? Shame! JUST SHUT UP!

PJBM626

Antone how about you shut up. You love to judge others with comments like arrogance but then you shoot your rudeness and try to set yourself on high. I have a right to my opinion on any sentence in a story. If it wasn’t intended it should have been left out. This paper has been biased on national news for a good while. That’s a fact

This is what you leftist do, love to silence those who don’t buy your lies

Bulldog

I was responding to natives, and to you other point come make me.

antone

Bull, borders on threat

antone

Yvonne Mintz, thank you for the moving story. Kudos!![love]

PJBM626

The reason I didn’t comment on Women’s rights comments because I fully agree

Excuse my comment to “shut up“ . That’s not called for and sorry I stooped down

antone

PJBM, you are right, and I also didn't need to lash out, was just on a roll and needed to shut up myself. didn't mean to be rude. I get frustrated when the subject is not discussed but becomes a platform for rehashing all the old comments. Every comment gets rehashed with the next issue of The Facts.

Antone. Thank you for your humbleness. I’m impressed. Not that you need my approval , I mean that as pure respect. Thanks for receiving my retraction. Humbleness is a Blessing

antone

I don't have words, right back at you. I'm impressed. Bye.[beam]

Father of Six

You have no words? You seem to have a lot of words. You meant to say, you have no useful words.

antone

Father, why are you talking about yourself?

antone

Father, thank you. I will take that under consideration and do better. Bye. [smile]

natives5

Leave it to Fo6 to insert himself and try to keep the hostility going. Both people apologized for their actions and both seemed humbled yet he has to try and fan the flames. Do better Fo6, do better.

Father of Six

Ha! look who's talking. More lecturing from natives. I was hoping you would send me a thank you note or card.
