“You shall not covet” says the commandment. But, my observation is that such selfish desires of the body, mind, and soul befoul American culture today. We covet power, money, sex, material things, and undisciplined freedom. Dictionary.com defines “covet” as “to desire wrongfully, inordinately, or without due regard for the rights of others.” Covetous politicians’ desire […] [...]

In some scenarios, Haley Barbour would have been traveling the United States these days as the Republican nominee for president. Instead, he’s on the sidelines doing what he does best — dispensing political advice for GOP loyalists.
