Finch was recognized by the Christian Post for being among a notable number of social commentators and analysts who accurately predicted the presidential election outcome. The Post cited Michael’s article “Why Trump Will Win” from the American Thinker, where he argued that Trump heard the railing against the corrupt system and how we need to ‘clean house’.

His articles have been published in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Times, Detroit Times, Reason Magazine, Breitbart, the Washington Times, and more.

Is it just me or does it seem like the world has turned upside down and inside out? Things that we took for granted as being true are now just an option. You can choose your identity, gender, nationality and in some extreme cases even species. Facts are flexible depending on your opinions. We are truly living in an alternative universe, side by side with those who do not think like us, who do not want to talk to us or listen to any idea that we might have that differs from their view.

It is a sad state when we cannot disagree, listen and learn. It is even sadder when not long ago they had some of the same ideas, stood up and shouted them for all to hear, but now that they are ours they are disavowed as racist, hateful and evil.

Talking with N. Korea's leader was the top of that list.....diplomacy was the ultimate goal. The left hated the tweets from President Trump calling Kim Jung Un rocketman. Apparently, Trump's tactic worked and the agreement to meet in person should have been well received by everyone. The left played it down and didn't give our President much credit. It will be interesting to see what happens when the possibility of a resolution becomes a reality.

Mary Carter, President


Your Sunshine Chairman is requesting that you keep her informed of any and all occasions that need to be acknowledged by a card. Such things as births, deaths, marriages, health issues, happy and sad, all deserve recognition. If I don't hear from you, someone who could use a bit of cheering up would be overlooked. Let's don't let that happen. Just drop me a line or email me.

Many thanks,
Dodie Brocken
