Fellow Americans, According to www.usdebtclock.org, our national debt is nearly $20 trillion! That figure is so astronomically high it doesn’t seem real. To reduce it down to more imaginable terms, consider the total U.S. debt per citizen of $60,198! How did this happen? By foolishly spending more...
Fellow Americans, Saturday, September 17, 2016, passed with little notice. The significance of that date is monumental, because on September 17, 1787, thirty-nine framers laid the groundwork for our young government and signed the Constitution. The Constitution is divided into three parts: the...
Fellow Americans, For years I have been sounding the alarm in an attempt to wake America from her slumber. I mostly blame our nation’s decline on Barack Hussein Obama, because he is El Presidente and the official “leader” of America. I must also blame Congress for gross dereliction of duty....
Fellow Americans, My friend, G. Robert Bauer II, recently submitted an amusing letter to the editor of the Citizen-Observer newspaper about respect. According to the letter, Mr. Bauer believes we should respect everyone at all times, no matter what. As I thought about that statement, I began to...

The Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) denied a Texas company’s application for a proposed private-equity, high-voltage power line project across Missouri for the second time on Tuesday.  The PSC found that Grain Belt Express (GBE) failed to file proper notice of its most recent application....
Fellow Americans, In my last article, Favorites, I explained why I believe Affirmative Action is bad for America. Because Mr. G. Robert Bauer II would appreciate further explanation, I will expound in this article. America went through dark times regarding slavery and racism. It nearly destroyed us...
"We are disappointed that our Governor has turned his back on farmers and ranchers, and on individual property rights.  Governor Nixon has pledged support for setting a precedent to allow a for-profit company to claim eminent domain and take the private property of Missourians for out-of-state...
The battle continues.
For three years now rural landowners have been in a pitched battle with Houston based Grain Belt Express. On one side you have a company promising clean energy, jobs, and tax dollars, and on the other you have landowners desperately trying to retain property rights so that a private company can’t...
