We still have a lot to learn about what causes local earthquakes


It seems that almost everyone involved in any way with government has an opinion on the sudden rise in earthquakes – in numbers and now intensity – in Oklahoma. Although not involved in government in any way (except for paying the excessive taxes to support the bloated bureaucracy in all levels of government, even down […]

President-elect Trump seems like he will keep his promises


From my point of view, it appears that President-elect Trump is already acting on some of the items contained in his Contract With America issued last month (shades of Newt Gingrich in 1994 – which is credited for a major takeover of majority in the House of Congress). When that group of promises made by […]

We expect a brighter future in 2017 thanks to a new president


Hear we go with a whole new year, starting with a fresh slate and daily calendar. There is valid reason to feel optimistic for the future of our nation, and as a fall-out, for the entire world.

The sub-head then read: “Starting Thursday, OHP troopers can drive no more than 100 miles […]

God played a major role in the United States winning WWII

Who knows what Democrats will do to change the electoral vote?


Now that we have finished our annual pause to thank God, our Creator of everything that is, we move into the Christmas shopping season already in full swing. In fact, it seems that some merchants and customers have been involved since Labor Day. More on that later on. It has been quite a change and […]

May the freedoms and rights the Pilgrims enjoyed be returned to us


As we enter the fourth full week of November, it becomes the time that we, in the United States, pause to observe our annual Thanksgiving Day on the fourth Thursday of November. If historical reports are true, and I have no reason to doubt, the first one occurred in 1621 after the harvest of the […]
