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

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

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

NPO – A New Political Order

We have a two party system, I don’t think that will go away. We’re creatures of habit in the U.S., you could say it’s a tradition of ours. It might be time we changed them, though. So how do we go about changing parties, given that 3rd parties tend to… Continue reading

Ruminations

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,… 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

I’ve been seeing a lot of posts lately related to the recent tax bill.  The posts center around that idea that everyone should go back to a barter system so that nothing is taxed.  This is usually supported with the following statement, “If we all barter for goods and services,… 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

And your new Democratic candidate is… Not a Democrat

Dear God, help us! Heh.  Still between that article, and another one I read but cannot find, the Montana Democrats are in need of a few good candidates.  Perhaps I should throw my hat into the ring as the kind of candidate they need.  You see, I’m not a Democrat…. Continue reading
