One of the most defining moments of President Donald Trump's State of the Union address was when he slammed socialism, a clear reference to freshmen members of Congress who have called for higher taxes and Medicare For All.
The future of our country is at stake. We have new generations who are so focused on leveling the playing field and taking from others that they're forgetting America's founding principles.

President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union in front of hostile Democrats who sat and seethed through most of his speech. Itís been two years and they still cannot get over the fact that Hillary Clinton is not the president. She will never be president. She will never deliver a State of the Union address. Move on, folks.
Sen. Kamala Harris, who is already trying to solidify the far left vote with her call to destroy private health care insurance, was seen shaking her head when Trump said, ďNow is the time for the Congress to show the world that America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, drug dealers, and human traffickers out of business.Ē I canít wait to hear how she will defend this, folks. Youíre against this, youíre shaking your head over this Ö are you kidding me?
Spring arrives in six weeks and I for one can't wait. With what's waiting to come out of the ground this spring and summer in Locust I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve. You know coming into Locust at night from Midland you cross Rocky River come through the intersection of Reid Mine Road and Pine Bluff Road and begin to see lights. When you make that last turn and over the last hill you see the city we call home. Restaurants, Retail, other amenities that make Locust a great place to live and raise a family. You can go in any direction from Locust and not find what we have to offer until you reach Albemarle, Charlotte, Concord or Monroe. Locust continues to lead the pack in our neck of the woods to provide its citizens with the convinces that only can be found in the larger cities. Thank the folks at city hall for a job well done. I'm proud to call Locust my home.
