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 better platform

Liberals and moderates are in trouble. They have almost nobody recognizable to run at the national level. It’s time they revisited their platforms and started being serious about compromise and their country.  It’s also time to put the DNC back in the hands of its members and get rid of… Continue reading

Addendum to the 4th of July Post

So as an addendum to my 4th of July post, I have to point out that in a couple of separate posts, Jim Wright of Stonekettle fame said much more of what was on my mind.  He said it well, with proper emphasis on those four letter superlatives that drive… Continue reading

Social Media – What is it even good for? Absolutely nothing! Good God!

About 18 years ago I ended up in a rough place. My father had been diagnosed with cancer and the outlook was very grim, at best. Most people don’t survive their first go ’round with this type of cancer, much less see another year or two. I was in my… Continue reading

Memorial Day

Another Memorial Day is almost past.  I hope, in honoring those who have died in service to our nation, that perhaps some people remember that there was a time when the idea of going to war was a bad thing.  Our government, our industry and our leaders often find reasons… Continue reading
