    Good times

    As the fog of impeachment fatigue disappears, we are able to focus once again on the condition of life in America. As we breathe the fresh air of a new year, it is a long-held tradition to review the year just passed. Looking back, we are particularly intrigued with statistics and rankings that inform us about the general condition of our fellow citizens. I submit that, as we enter a new election year, an …

    New year! New rubbish?

    New Year’s has been celebrated and we return to “ordinary time”: Daily routines of work, school and organizations. So, too, returns that endless stream of political drivel: Printed, posted, and broadcast. Within days, the talking heads will get (or compose) a fresh load of rubbish to spread along with their fact-free conclusions. Candidates will seek every opportunity for camera time and political advertisements …

    The Constitution and the wisdom of the Founding Fathers

    I am not sure that many folks today understand the wisdom of those men of more than two centuries ago who wrote our United States Constitution. People seem confused or have no knowledge about what is going on in our government today. The emotion of the moment seems to be more important than the “why” of how the government functions. There is a common thread in this confusion. Why are the representatives in the …

    Do you remember the real America?

    Can you remember when you never dreamed our country could never lose? When you went to church and found spiritual consolation, when people knew what the Fourth of July stood for, and when you took it for granted that the elderly and the clergy were to be respected? When you didn’t feel embarrassed to say that this is the best damned country in the world, when socialist was a dirty word, and when liberal was by …

    Rep. Adam Schiff, media acolytes proven liars

    If you have been watching, reading or listening to the mainstream media coverage of American politics for the past few years, California Congressman Adam Schiff, current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has been a regularly featured “authority” on all things important to the “we-hate-President Trump-but-we’re-not-biased media.” Lest we forget the history here, Rep. Schiff has for several years been …

    Senatorial Collins

    Maine is indeed fortunate to have Susan Collins representing us in the U.S. Senate. As the senior senator from the Pine Tree State, her legislative record and calm, deliberative manner embody the very term, senatorial. Webster’s Dictionary defines the term as “acting with dignity and solemnity.” Colleagues on both sides of the political aisle admire Collins for her senatorial temperament. Perhaps there could be …

    Change of season, season of change

    Four weeks remain in the second decade of this new millennium. So far, we have survived the Y2K crisis, the acid rain crisis, the dot com crisis, multiple climate change crises, and the opioid crisis. We have even survived the incessant, insulting, hyperbolic headlines proclaiming them. Some say we have all but completely abandoned the moral and social norms that restrained the darker instincts of human behavior …

    Be thankful

    1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 2 Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever. 3 Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever Psalms 136:1-3 As a country we are very much a divided people. There seems to be very little on which folks agree. However, there seems to be disagreement everywhere; the presidency, foreign policy, …

    Happy daze

    Let us pretend the results of the 2020 election have just been finalized and the Democratic Socialists have won it all, the presidency and both the House and the Senate. Can you just imagine how great this is going to be, freebies and more freebies, and I suppose it will not cost anyone any money except for the dastardly “rich.” Now let us go over our “wish list.” Gosh, I’m so happy I can hardly contain myself. …

    Coup first, invent justification later

    Sometimes it is the haughty smugness of today’s Democrats/Progressives that is most amazing. They say very revealing things, actually telling people what they are really planning to do to the country and all the voters by extension. They are such paragons of virtue-signaling and non-constitutional scholars. Recent examples revealed in tweets from current “whistleblower” attorney Mark S. Zaid highlight the faulty …
