Fellow Americans, Lately there has been a lot of talk about “white privilege.”  To some people that term refers to the preferential treatment of white people over black people by our government.  To others it refers to income inequality between races or classes of people.  Either way, I believe...
California Wildfires
California is once again on fire. The Mendocino Complex fire, near Redding, is now the largest wildfire in California history. The blaze is giving firefighters trouble, as it has leapt across barriers, natural and man-made, burning more than 280,000 acres so far. Many were quick to point to the...
Over and again tourist type attractions have the ability to end in disaster.
I've thought about taking a Duck boat ride and I'm glad I passed.  Thirty-one people including 29 passengers had boarded the Duck boat ride vehicle for a joy ride on Table Rock Lake outside Branson Missouri last week.  It became the last ride that 17 of the passengers would ever make.  Torrential...
Forget about the threat of socialism or even communism; the real threat comes from those who want to foist Idiocracy down our throats. Merriam-Webster defines Idiocracy as “a form of government in which a country or territory is run by fools.” And, the madness of anti-government protests that have...
Fellow Americans,  In the June 21, 2018 edition of the Citizen Observer newspaper, I read Pam King’s letter to the editor about our immigration problem.  In her letter, Ms. King blamed President Trump for the family separation on the southern border, citing his “horrifying” and “evil” mistreatment...

Fellow Americans,  In the March 27, 2018 edition of the Caldwell County News, I read an interesting article by Dr. Ted Rights regarding immigrants.  He wrote about God’s love for us and our duty to love one another, which I agree with.  I disagree, however, with Dr. Rights’ assumption that...
Fellow Americans,  On March 23, 2018, President Donald Trump signed the largest spending bill in U.S. history!  According to an article on www.forbes.com, this $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill included funding (our money) for the National Park Service, the IRS, Planned Parenthood, the National...
Fellow Americans, As I filed my income taxes, I thought about all the ways the federal government is wasting our money.  To satisfy my curiosity, I visited the website Citizens Against Government Waste (www.cagw.org) on the internet (you know, what Al Gore invented).  I studied their “2017...
