Old Timer

Always in my pocket is Grandpa’s Old Timer pocket knife.  It was a gift from my Mother.  By any stretch, it’s not an expensive knife.  I like to reach into my pocket and wrap my hand around it.  There’s comfort in knowing something from the past can ground you in the present with memories of times and people.

America: We’ve Become A Contradiction Wrapped In Absurdity

The real American way is simple.  If I own a fast food chain, I stand with the food chain that stands by its beliefs.  If I own a bakery, I stand with the baker that holds fast to his beliefs.  Otherwise, I open the door to people who may want to eliminate my business because my worldview may be contrary to theirs. Maybe we should boycott the tyrannical fascists.

The Internet And Social Media Turned Me Into A Shallow Headline Reader

Finally, there’s politics in the twilight zone.  Never matter that we only have 12 years before the world goes up in flames.  Put down your coffee because it’s painful when hot coffee spews out of your nose.  Joe Handsy Biden assures us that President Trump inherited the great Obama Biden economy.  They tell me that old blue-collar Joe knows.  And this is why they need to eliminate the Electoral College.

So Help Me God – The Battle For The Heart And Soul Of America

I stand in good company proclaiming that we arrived in this world knowing right from wrong.  Like freedom, it was written on our hearts.  People argue against that.  Especially if they do not accept the natural order or a Supreme moral authority.  The moral authority that defines right and wrong.

There Is An Education Scandal Way Beyond What’s In The News

Do you really think this college admissions scandal is new? A new racket? Just look at some of those we know supposedly educated at highfalutin institutions of higher learning. Our political families? People who would die rather than hob nob with the peasants over at the public school. It’s always been that way. Daddy donates a few million and junior is admitted. Even if junior is dumb as a box of rocks.
