  • Stop the steal

    Corporations, small businesses and other entities have been stealing time from each of us in a planned and systematic way for many years to enrich themselves. It is time for this to stop.
  • The death of DEI
    DEI, we hardly knew ye. DEI is one of the fastest liberal concepts to come and go in nearly the same breath. Living in the bucolic lands of Highland County, you may never have had to encounter DEI. Lucky you.
  • For the adults this Christmas season
    It used to be we treated the words of politicians with skepticism and the words of scientists as the truth. Now we do not discern the source – all may be lies. And just perhaps this starts with what we tell our kids at the high Holy holidays. Think about it and think about what you are telling your kids this Christmas.
  • The world got a little dumber last week
    Three remarkable individuals left their earthly bodies last week. Charlie Munger, age 99, Henry Kissinger, age 100, and Sandra Day O’Conner, age 93. All three were remarkable intellects.
  • SEC v. Jarkesy
    Some will argue we live in a republic; others may say we live in a democracy. I say both are wrong. We live in a dictatorship. It is not the old-fashioned type of dictatorship with one leader, it has many leaders ensconced in all the various bureaucracies. 
  • Government spending cuts start at home
    Government spending is a universal problem found everywhere. Anyone who walks through the door of a city council meeting or county commissioner meeting with a grant, gift or graft (I just like the alliterative sound of that), is welcomed with open arms. If there has ever been an assessment of whether the community needs whatever this filthy lucre is purported to fix, that is an analysis I fail to recall ever seeing.
  • We are no better than the Ancients
    At least I have found something on which Christians and Muslims agree – no infanticide.
  • What do we do now?
    For my entire life, these bad players and others have been trying to destroy Western culture and our way of life. They are not going to pause; they are not going to stop. It is up to us to stop them.
  • My friends and colleagues
    So, who makes us enemies? It clearly does not happen on the one-on-one, person-to-person level. I lay this issue at the feet of politicians worldwide.
  • My encounter with the PLO
    Phone calls from the U.S. to Helsinki were much more reasonable, and I called my family every couple of days while in the states. On one call, my wife told me Mr. al-Wazir and his family had suddenly left on a family emergency. The reason? Mr. al-Wazir’s brother was Khalil al-Wazir.
  • The Blue Marble
    We only have this tiny Blue Marble on which to live. We can take care of it environmentally, and we can take care of it socially. Or not. Right now, it looks like we are squandering our precious home, allowing our sinful nature to – once again – wreak havoc.
  • Don't cross the D.C. swampers
    The Security and Exchange Commission is still pursuing Mr. Musk over his purchase of Twitter, now a year ago.
  • Considerations from Ancestry.com
    If you are pro-abortion, you are here today voicing your opinion because someone made a decision you may think no one should now have to make. That is your right in the United States. My purpose is to help you understand what it took to get here where you can now voice that opinion. 
  • The age of shabby and shoddy, Part 2
    Little did I know three weeks ago that I would be revisiting this topic again so soon. However, thank you, Senate Majority Leader Charles Ellis Schumer, D-N.Y., for providing our topic this week.  
  • UNESCO in Ohio
    It was recently in the news that a number of ancient native American sites in Ohio are about to become part of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO’s) World Heritage Sites.  
  • The Republicans and abortion
    From fetuses to male swimmers in bikinis, these are all patterns of the same thinking. The innocent are ignored for the sake of some great "enlightened" thought process. If you don’t go along with their line of thought, you are cast as a dumb rube (and it is OK to call you a dumb rube, because you are not part of the “in crowd”).
