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
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
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 because Dave and I are… Continue reading President Trump’s Legacy

I will also link to my sources as time goes on.* So, regarding my post the other day. The State of the… Continue reading Take me to Church

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 the Super Delegate system. A… Continue reading A better platform
I have this joke, some consider it in poor taste, but as I observe things, it’s an honest reflection of the current state of the Christian religion within the United States. What do you get when you put two Baptists together? A Church What do you get when you put three Baptists together? Two churches.… Continue reading The State of the Church
Rip Harlan Ellison. It may be odd, but is it wrong that one of my favorite depictions/cameo’s of him and his work was in Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated? “He’s not here right now, he’s attending a misanthropes convention.”
So yesterday I wrote about a singular experience in my life that meant something, that really touched me at a time when I needed it. 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!
