Monuments to a better future

I previously touched on erasing our past in my letter to my liberal friends.  I’d like to expand on that concept a bit, kind of explain where more of that came from.  In addition to erasing people from the past, or changing their roles, we’ve been on a kick to… Continue reading

President Trump’s Legacy

My good friend Dave and I were talking the other day and President Trump’s impact on the US came up. What has he really achieved or accomplished- good or bad? What is his actual impact on the world as El Presidente? This is a fun back and forth for me… Continue reading

Take me to Church

*A fair warning to me dear readers.  This is not a finished piece but more of a work in progress.  I will continue to edit it, perhaps add to it, certainly refine it.  I will also link to my sources as time goes on.* So, regarding my post the other… Continue reading

A Different Kind of Campaign

I have a problem with authority.  Many people who know me slightly will have no idea what I mean.  Even some of my closer friends and co-workers won’t understand what I mean.  You see, it’s not that I have trouble or resistance to following directions, somebody’s lead or being a… Continue reading

90% Communist

“Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist party?”  That was a question asked during one of the darker spots of our governmental history.  A time, not unlike today, where the appearance or accusation of impropriety could ruin a person – usually to the financial… Continue reading

Free Time
