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

An open letter to all my liberal left friends

Dear friends of the Left, Please stop messing with history.  I get that you often advocate for things like changing the names of sports teams, landmark and cultural sites in an effort to be more sensitive to certain segments of our society that have been deliberately ignored or typecast.  Honestly,… 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

Net Neutrality – A Fine Thing

The past couple of weeks have been pretty centered around the whole Net Neutrality debacle. It was a given that the FCC under Ajit Pai was going to repeal it, but what is going to happen next has been less clear. There’s a lot of alarmist stuff passing through my… Continue reading

100 Days

I saw a post from a former pastor of mine.  I consider him a friend and mentor – at least, I considered him one.  It’s a confusing thing.  I still love and respect him, admire much of his character and have nothing but the deepest appreciation for the things he… Continue reading

Running for the Republicans

So yesterday I posited the idea of running for the Democrats as a non-Democrat, and not in the Bernie Sanders kind of why.  I can’t say I’d do the same for the Republicans, at least not at this time.  The first reason is that the Democratic party has, at least… Continue reading
