    Rep. Ed Schieffer

    In 2006, the Missouri Legislature did away with the restrictions on campaign contributions in our state. Every Republican representative at the time, along with one Democrat, Jamilah Nasheed, voted for unlimited campaign donations. Since then, millions and millions of dollars have poured into Jefferson City. Large sums of money destroy our ethical system and corrupt politicians into seeking money for themselves, instead of what is just and right with respect

    Twenty-five years ago this month the Berlin Wall fell, signaling the end of Soviet communist domination in Eastern Europe.

    Commander Lloyd M. Bucher is reported to have said that “the anticipation of torture is often worse than the event”. If you know of Commander Bucher I would hazard a guess that you were either born prior to 1960, or you may have spent some time in the service of the United States Navy.

As a child I was taught at school to stand and cover your heart with your right hand while saying the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.
