There are signs that the nation is taking a turn toward the better


Yes, it really seems that things are turning around and better days already seem to be arriving on our scene. Most of the PRESDT income tax proposals managed to work their way through the Congressional swamp to his desk and were signed into law without waiting until after the new year. Already, some major corporations […]

It sure looks like President Trump is doing a lot of for the country


Here we go again.  Once more it is the beginning of another year and it seems that, as the saying goes, “the more things change the more they stay the same.”   We still are assailed each day with “mean-mouthed” pontifications and postulations by those of the Communist/Socialist persuasion against every and all things proposed by […]

I hope everyone has a happy and prosperous New Year in 2018


As we now come to the final week in the “Year of Our Lord” 2017, so much has happened this year that it would take several pages of typed printing to  cover it all. And since these efforts of mine are being published in a few papers and therefore subject to editorial license and possible […]

Merry Christmas and please stay safe, healthy, comforted in 2018


Yes, the final days before most of the Christian World stops (?) to commemorate the birth that happened more than two thousand years ago of the Christ Child in a little town in Israel called Bethlehem. Tradition, Scriptures and the archives remaining of the world then have told us that it happened there because the […]

The anniversary of Pearl Harbor reminds America to be diligent


This week should remain in our hearts and minds as memorable, but not really for joy or in a happy way. December 7th is the 76th anniversary of the attack by carrier-based aviation units of the Imperial Japanese Navy on our naval base at  Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on a Sunday morning. We should recall that […]

Sexual abuse accusations might be true but they can be manufactured


The unusually downright dirty campaign tactics of 2016 have certainly been carried over to the numerous special election campaigns so far this year. And the major – and sometimes local – media has not been exempt from the improper assistance to one side or  the other, mostly in favor of those of the C/S philosophy. […]

The FairTax would be a good idea to boost the economy of America


As this is written, Congress has begun, without very much media hype because of the ongoing special prosecutor investigation news(?), to work on the income tax changes proposed by PRESDT in his campaign last year. For us overtaxed citizens ruled by overpaid bureaucrats, it appears that the loyal(?) opposition has resorted to their usual tactics […]

Think about King David when you think about Veterans Day Nov. 11


For almost 100 years it has been the practice of patriotic citizens of the United States to pause on the 11th day of November (originally) to honor the armistice which ended World War I. That ceremony was held in a railroad passenger car “on the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month.” […]

Maybe the government should not be issuing any marriage licenses


The daily news(?)paper in Tulsa has a couple of regular items on page 2 each day that are anecdotal but also informative and interesting. In a recent issue, the small item titled, “Will Rogers says,” read: “I see by the papers that they are going to do away with all the nuisance taxes. That means […]
