Education

What is the role of government when it comes to educating our children?  If you have children do you home school them, send them to public school or are you in a financial position where you can have your children attend a religious school or private institution?  All of those options come down to personal preference and…

Fake News

What is fake news?  Donald Trump did not create this phrase but certainly brought it to the top of our vocabulary list as an adjective for describing news media outlets: particularly those he does not agree with.  For all the talk of fake news since he decided to run for President, I thought it would be good to…

National Emergency

What is an emergency? More so what is a national emergency? The President recently declared a national emergency to access congressionally approved funds that were allocated for different departments.  He did this as a workaround to get the money he wants for the continued construction of the southern border barrier that Democrats now deem unnecessary and immoral. For more…

ICE

Facts or feelings; this is what you will get from someone when the topic of ICE comes out.  A few weeks ago I was watching a video of two Trump supporters engaging a white woman with a shaved head at a rally.  The woman was protesting Trump and the supporters asked her a series of questions as…

Skeletons

We all have skeletons in our closet.  Things we’ve done in the past that we are not too proud of.  Some of those things may have been minor i.e. being mean to people you went to school with.  Definitely not minor if you were a bully and that bullying had a major impact on someone’s life.  Some skeletons are…

State of the Union

President Trump will give the annual state of the union address on February 5th this year.  A week delayed due to some brinksmanship by Speaker Pelosi over the government shutdown but it is now ready to be delivered. For those of you who are interested in the political partisan spectacle of half the room standing and not…

Selective Moral Outrage

What do you think of when you hear that term?  Hypocrisy? Bias?  People forcing their morality on you but not on themselves when it’s convenient?  How about all of the above!  Nothing is more telling of how a person or party really is than when they turn a blind eye to actions of people they support and lambaste others who…

What Is Socialism

The topic of socialism is front and center in the media today.  Socialism is much like the Dickens novel A Tale of Two Cities.  That book was written in 1859.  160 years later we are still dealing with extreme poverty, social unrest, oppressive leaders and a country on the brink of revolution.  If you think I’m speaking about the…

Famous Walls

With Donald Trump and politicians in Congress agreeing to re-open the government until February 15th allowing federal workers to receive their salaries and ease tensions across the country, the immigration debate and border security will dominate the upcoming legislative conversation.  Front and center will be Southern Border Wall Funding.  Trump has requested $5.7 Billion dollars to construct…
