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 tear down old monuments. Naturally… Continue reading Monuments to a better future
Back when I was selling phones I used to try and share with my employees that one of my best selling tools was the cup of coffee that I perpetually had in front of me. They would look at me in disbelief. You see, a cup of coffee is a normalizing object. It’s a modern… Continue reading A cup of coffee
Doughnuts are bread. Bread machines make bread. Bread machines make doughnuts. This right here is how we make the world a better place, people. #doughnutnotdonut
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, in terms of renaming things… Continue reading An open letter to all my liberal left friends

Freedom and independence are used interchangeably, but they have very different meanings when you look at it. We declared our Independence from the British Empire, the Crown. We declared and demanded the right to determine our own… Continue reading On the 4th of July

It was very basic, very human and possessing an impact far beyond the moment itself. Since then I’ve had a few people ask me what was up, or what prompted… Continue reading Why? Because some times you just have to hug it out.
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 early twenties and just starting… Continue reading Social Media – What is it even good for? Absolutely nothing! Good God!
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 why our soldiers should die. … Continue reading Memorial Day
I’m rambling today, I’m not bothering to work this into one coherent meme, so by all means pass on by. 🙂 I saw a poll today on a website, I don’t remember which one. It was asking which moment in MLK’s life was the most important. The Dream Speech, his non-violence, his work on the Civil… Continue reading Ruminations
