God bless TrumpYou Snowflakes won’t get this, and you secular Progressive Elites won’t get it either — but the rest of thinking masses should. There really was only one logical choice in the 2016 Presidential election — and fortunately for we who cherish life, liberty and unrestrained freedom — Donald J. Trump was that man!Bernie Sanders would have beaten Hillary, if the game had been played fairly, but he was running […]Original Article: http://www.vvdailypress.com/opinion/20170625/letters-to-editor-06-25-17?rssfeed=true
Reflections of the past tend to remind us of who we are and how far we’ve come as Americans. Never mind that we’ve elected about the most unconventional, irresponsible commander-in-chief ever in presidential history. But do pay attention to those who would levy war against those whom put him there. If there were any greater historical lesson that we may learn from this it would be of the lessons learned from our own Civil War.Before Abe Lincoln could be inaugurated in […]Original Article: http://www.vvdailypress.com/opinion/20170625/valley-voices-honor-and-virtue-misplaced?rssfeed=true

On Sunday they fell behind 5-0, largely thanks to Brandon McCarthy’s three wild pitches.
They were playing their second baseman (Logan Forsythe) at first, their first baseman (Cody Bellinger) in right, their super-utility man (Enrique Hernandez) at shortstop, their backup catcher (Austin Barnes) at second and a pedigreed shortstop (Chris Taylor) in left.
The day droned on, quiet and hot, and then you started seeing things..
