Parenting disputes should be settled in a manner to help the children


A recent news story in the daily paper (print) stated that the Osage Nation Tribe had won a round in their charges against the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) regarding the invasion of their tribal allotment lands, now labeled Osage County, by wind-energy operators. Of course, the space limitations on this writer would not allow […]

School children are not learning about the history of U.S. warfare


It appears to be a sad but true fact that, overall, the education system in that republic called the United States of America is continually failing both its students and their parents, the ones who are paying for this now broken system. And it has been becoming worse for several decades. In my “school days” […]

President Trump is bringing hope back to a population in despair


It seems that there are substantial numbers of acquaintances, friends, and unmet readers who are truly concerned about the near future of our nation, the United States of America. Contacts are made with me numerous times by citizens really and deeply concerned about the future of our beloved republic, given the continuing uproar and nasty […]

Liberal media leads the charge to criticize President Donald Trump


The level of corruption and mean-mouthed accusations spewing from those of the C/S persuasion has not in my lifetime reached such a low level in the United States. It seems that each day, those of that group in media and politics succeed in attaining a new cellar of outright lies and name-calling. The “journalists(?)” in […]

After repealing Obamacare, the Congress should reform taxation


The House of Representatives in the Congress of the United States has finally sent to the Senate a bill to, we are told, change the ACA (Affordable Care Act) before it completely collapses, financially, of it’s own misplaced direction. Well, what can we expect from a 2,000+-page monstrosity that was pushed through both Houses of […]

It’s not the ‘Democratic’ Party, you should call it the Democrat Party


It never ceases to anger me when politicians and media personalities – so often and continually – refer to the United States as “our democracy” and the name of the political party now captured by officials with a C/S (Communist/Socialist) persuasion as the “Democratic Party.” Before you come unglued by this statement, it should be […]

‘Wind farms’ upset tribal leaders, kill birds and cost taxpayer dollars


In the April 23 issue of the daily news(?)paper was a “Viewpoint” column and the headline of which caught my eye. It was: “Wind farms cause cultural, economic damage.” The story was authored by Geoffrey M. Standing Bear, principal chief of the Osage Tribe/Nation. I don’t have in my memory file the necessary information to […]

We live in a dangerous world that doesn’t seem to be getting better


Most of us, at least those over 50, were taught in school about the Barbary Pirates that operated out of Tripoli (Libya) in the 18th – 20th centuries. Yes, they preyed on merchant ships, capturing them and demanding ransom money for their release. They were not reported in history to have been the murderous butchers […]

President Trump is correct about a wall on the southern border


During the two-year presidential campaign, PRESDT promised that during his administration, a wall would be constructed along the southern border of the United States and Mexico. The stated reason was to restrict the invasion of illegal aliens and drug runners/assassins. Those of the C/S persuasion loudly and often protested that such was “illegal, unconstitutional and […]
