Living Righteously Through The NFL
Posted Thursday, January 22, at 10:07 PM

I guess I am beginning to understand how today's American citizen thinks. The American psyche has gotten weird, for example: I now know that the American people will not put up with an NFL Quarterback or Coach deflating footballs for a game. That kind of skullduggery will not be tolerated by Mr. and Mrs. citizen...

I want to offer some thoughtful and insightful comments on President Obama's handling of various "situations". Hey I want to be positive. I really do. This is why I haven't written for a while. I look a various issues, and all I can think of to say anymore, in the spirit of Sam Kinison, is Aaaaaarrgg!...

The Politics of Divsion
Posted Tuesday, August 5, at 9:55 PM

"A politician divides mankind into two classes. Tools and enemies." - Frederick Nietzsche I don't know about you, but I am tired of the war on white folks from Democrats. While those on the Left constantly cry about hatred, and racism, the true war and hatred since 2008 has been a war on whites...

They Are in it Together
Posted Saturday, August 2, at 2:05 PM

I think it was Fred Allen who once said, "You can tell people the truth, but you better make them laugh, or they will hurt you." We seem to be living in a time where the marvelous lie is preferred over the hard truth. Maybe it has always been that way...

Posted Monday, July 14, at 11:40 PM

United States Attorney General Eric Holder is going to get involved in Nebraska. You would think the Nation's Chief Law Enforcement Officer might want to investigate some real crimes. For example, IRS abuses, Fast & Furious, illegals being dumped in Nebraska without the consent of our governing authorities...

Eric Holder Draws The Race Card, Again
Posted Monday, July 14, at 7:45 PM

Once again The Attorney General of the United States claims that race is behind the opposition to the policies of the Obama Administration. Gets old doesn't it? You would think these guys have something real to think about and deliberate upon, but no. Apparently, our chief law enforcement officer sits up nights worried that folks don't like him because he is black...

Twenty Questions for Senator Johanns
Posted Sunday, July 13, at 10:35 PM

In the days of carefully crafted talking points and spin doctors, politicians are careful not to offend anyone on the Planet Earth, other than white Christians males. It is hard to get a straight answer to any question from our elected officials. But if by some miracle, I had the opportunity to sit and ask our United States Senator, Mike Johanns, just twenty questions, and get twenty honest answers, that would be marvelous...

The Savage Truth
Posted Sunday, July 13, at 1:23 AM

"When I fought to protect my land and my home, I was called a savage." - Chief Dan George Do you wonder if any one running the country has any idea what they are doing? I do not exaggerate to say that our country is in trouble. Years ago, many citizens expressed concerns about the path of the country. America had been taken in by a tricky media complex, and an expertly executed bag of Socialist and Communist tactics, to elect fraud, and a Marxist as President...

Old Time Radio
Posted Saturday, February 4, at 2:00 PM

February 14th approaches. It is a special day for me. Yes indeed, February 14th is Jack Benny's birthday. If memory serves me right, Jack will be 39. Jack has been 39 since 1933, when he actually turned 39. And it is not just Jack Benny that I fondly celebrate on February 14th, but the golden age of radio as well...

Christmas Hope
Posted Sunday, December 25, at 10:57 PM

My mom loved Christmas. Our Christmas tree usually went up the day after Thanksgiving. We'd watch football games and decorate the tree, it was a wonderful time as a kid. I can remember Mom always talked about Hope at Christmas time. Christ's birth was true hope for men and women dealing with this thing called life...

Turn Right When You Reach Mars
Posted Thursday, December 15, at 2:28 PM

When I was a teenager, I remember going to see the movie: 2001 A Space Odyssey on the huge screen at the Arvada Plaza theatre in metro Denver. At that time, America was very close to fulfilling the dream of landing on the Moon. Back in 1968 when this movie came out, I totally bought into the idea that by 2001, we would have a base on the Moon. ...

Dealing With BDS (Battered Democrat Syndrome)
Posted Tuesday, December 13, at 6:30 AM

I listened to President Obama last week in Kansas as he took to the political pulpit to preach the gospel of Socialism. This sermon I have heard before, from guys like Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez, and Fidel Castro. What really struck me was the manufactured crowd. They were all cheering for the President to lock them away in an economic prison...

Hearts and Flowers
Posted Sunday, November 27, at 12:48 AM

Many voters realize that any of the current candidates running for this nation's highest office would make a better President than Barack Obama. Truly, it would be hard for any human being to do a worse job than Obama. But simply being "better" than Obama can not be the measuring stick when choosing a nominee. We must be honest with ourselves, and confront the Liberal Democrats and the mess they have created in almost every area...

The Real Valley Forge
Posted Monday, November 14, at 2:58 PM

I heard that some of the children of Liberalism in the Occupy crowd were calling their protests a "Valley Forge moment". Further evidence of the real fruits of our public education system. I would love to dive into a rant here, instead, I will use the words of Henry Armitt Brown, in his oratory regarding Valley Forge, delivered June 19th 1878...

It is interesting to see the folks who have voiced support for the Occupy Wall Street Slacker vermin, infesting many of our nations' cities.

The Southern Boys

I met "The Boss" earlier this year. He was recruiting hired hands for a special project and he was just loaded with promises. He basically promised hard work, long hours, tough conditions, being away from home, little or no time off, few breaks and good pay...
