"Leeding" America Down the Garden Path

6a0120a73c0f0d970b017c332154e0970b Below is an op-ed submitted to our local newspaper regarding our local Conference Center.  I wrote this in response to an article they published in today's paper, where city staff members and leaders are lamenting that the building they mortgaged our fire houses to build didn't receive a higher "LEED" rating.  The Conference Center project […]

Follow the Money to the Article V Convention

us-money-with-black-backdrop BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.....seems like the apt phrase for this. The Convention of States / Aritcle V Consitutional Convention / Con Con is appealing to people through deception. That is a fact.  And that is the tragedy of it. Digging deeper into the Convention of States, I find that there is a Texas […]

Using Children for Warfare on Our Border & Elsewhere

children_on_border Civilization has devolved.  I'm trying to think of any other time in history, other than recent history, where grown men used children as tools and shields in war.   I am aware of sexual exploitation of children in failed civilizations of the past, and sacrificing children in ancient pagan rituals.  But somehow this seems a bit […]

Despite America's "Liberating" Countries of Communism and Terrorism - Both are Thriving Here and Abroad

iStockphoto_Thinkstock_thunder_storm_umbrella I was thinking this morning that this current generation is going through what we went through with regards to war. (Fewer dead, thousands maimed, vividly painful just the same.) Liberating Southeast Asia from communism, liberating the Middle East from terrorism. Yet communism (under whatever ideological tag ~ fascism, socialism, communitarianism, etc.) and terrorism are both […]

Obamacare - The Healthcare Pickle

SideEffectsLogo4 Why do we find ourselves in this healthcare pickle? How did the federal government get the idea they could insert themselves into our health insurance industry? People forget that government is force; and that it is force at the point of a gun. A model for the Obamacare law can be found in the federal […]

Campaign Donations – The Price of Everything

remote_image_1329813159 I'm not equipped enough to go into the Federal Reserve details with the continual printing of some $85 billion per month that is being pumped into the nation.  I just know the problem continues and escalates.  But I came across an article this morning that explains something about where the money is going.  Consider the […]

Common Core and Obamacare - Birds of a Feather

common core obamacare Birds of a feather flock together.  What do Common Core and Obamacare have in common?  Lots.  Both are huge programs that started out as ideological theories foisted onto the states by way of deception.  Governors were placed in the cross hairs to implement both of these monoliths of control over citizens' lives.   Common Core […]

Unintended Consequences of Obamacare? I Don’t Think So

obamacare-doctor-dmv Our local newspaper today printed and editorial lamenting the so-called "unintended consequences" of ethanol mandates in our gasoline supply. Surely, I thought, they have to be joking. Unintended? You would not have to be a rocket scientist to realize the impact to corn prices and, therefore, food supply chain reactions because of ethanol mandates and […]

Government Shutdown: The Private Sector Has Been Screaming for Over a Year – Now It’s the Obama Government that’s Screaming

obama-angry-1jpg For the last year we have been watching private sector companies lay off employees, close facilities, stop covering health insurance for employees, and generally struggle to survive, if at all. The announcements are coming faster and more prevalent every day.  All of this is due to the devastation caused by government policies, and especially Obamacare.  […]

Ethics in Journalism – The Public Deserves the Truth

Ethicswordbubble "If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed." ― Mark Twain To paraphrase a rather crude phrase, "Opinions are like (blankety blank blank), everyone has one," but when the public is denied access to the facts, opinions are a worthless use of air and print.  People have nothing […]
