Phil Williams: Like lemmings to the pronoun sea

Someone somewhere threw some pronoun lemmings off a proverbial cliff and the left-wing world bought the lie and went with it!

Gambling Alabama News
Phil Williams: Whoopin' up on the gambling strawman

If you’re an advocate for the expansion of gambling in Alabama then just say so. But if you say one thing and vote another, then it taints the process.

Phil Williams: Revenge of the sacrificial lamb

A sacrificial lamb, who had been offered up to appease the gods (with a little “g”) of wokeness, just launched her revenge.

Keep your eyes on Texas. What we are seeing is a constitutional crisis of the highest order play out in the fight to defend our southern border.

The United Nations' Climate Change Conference (COP) is a joke, but the COP is also serious. It is past time for the U.S. to instigate a COP-out.

WWI Truce Alabama News
Phil Williams: The Christmas truce

Christmas has a way of changing things. As surely as the history and faith of the world changed in a lowly Bethlehem manger over 2,000 years ago, there are still moments today that cannot be explained except to say that the spirit of Christmas overcame the worst of circumstances.

TP Alabama News

Phil Williams: Something for nothing

Free-market economies only work when the consumer is actually free to choose what was actually freely developed and marketed. Otherwise, the market will self-correct as consumers get EV guilt tipping fatigue. 

Singing Alabama News
Phil Williams: Casinos and tone-deaf politics

Politicians need to sing to their audience, not to themselves. They need to sing (and govern) in a manner that does not look, sound, or feel like they are so tone deaf that they are missing what really matters to the people who elected them.

Palestinian Protest Alabama News
Phil Williams: Fallacious, salacious and downright contumacious

Amazingly, arguments are being bandied about by pro-Palestinian supporters that Israel is to blame for the attacks on its people, that Israel is an “apartheid state,” that Israel is an occupier of Palestine, and most egregious, that Israel is conducting genocide.

Schoolhouse Rock Alabama News
Phil Williams: Beware the new agenda-driven ‘Schoolhouse Rock’

In the middle of the animated reverie, there was a three-minute bonus that aired periodically: a cartoon ditty called “Schoolhouse Rock.” I thought it was cool, and I can still sing some of the catchy tunes today.
