One of the traveling Vietnam walls made an appearance this weekend in Flora, Mississippi. Appointed US Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith was scheduled to speak at the event on Saturday, October 27 and to lay a wreath at the wall in honor of those who perished. Instead, she blew off the veterans to make an appearance at a “biscuits and jam” event in Union and a chamber of commerce event in Pontotoc.

As if this weren’t bad enough, Hyde-Smith didn’t even bother to notify the event’s organizers that she would not be attending.

Just like the media commentators and President Trump, making accusations against those we oppose without first attempting to find agreement of the underlying facts is a recipe for resentment. Finding ways to honestly engage in a discussion of the type that reveals the sincerity behind our true intentions, our purpose — making this connection in an age of drifting individualism is one of the keys to regaining the social ground that’s been lost.

Regardless of the position one holds on abortion, funding at least warrants concern over the fiscal irresponsibility of such a decision. Of course, the fact that a large number of taxpayers take exception with abortion being defined in a list of services as “reproductive health” should be the primary focus. A sting of several of Planned Parenthood’s providers in 2015 showed how the organization profits from the sale of discarded embryos. Moral concerns are only heightened by the cavalier attitude and lack of respect Planned Parenthood shows towards the most innocent of human lives.

The government is spending more, borrowing more, and controlling more and more aspects of our lives for no reason other than pure political gain. Civility is only going to return when people stop treating politics as the only thing that matters—and we start actually shrinking the size, scope, and spending of government and give ourselves some space to breathe.

The Trump administration on Wednesday reported $23 billion in savings from 176 deregulatory actions in fiscal year 2018. Even more consequential, the administration has issued 65 percent fewer “significant” rules—those with costs that exceed $100 million a year—than the Obama administration, and 51 percent fewer than the Bush administration, after 22 months in office.

The current federal disability system is broken and desperately needs reform. The program has diverged from its original design as a safety net for the permanently and severely disabled,instead becoming a lifestyle for too many adults with manageable work limits. While many of these recipients have substantial disabilities, many individuals have much more manageable work limitations and are more work-capable in the modern American economy.
