Muslims: The How And The Why, Part One

I just read a book loaned to me by Howard about how the Islamic people will be in command of the world as we know it by the turn of the next century. Want to hear about it? If not, just turn the channel to another station. But as usual, I digress. I...

Just when I didn’t think it could get any worse, here comes this story in the Washington Free Beacon about the National Institute of Health spending $400,000 texting Latino men, telling them they’re too fat and that they need to exercise more....

 

Changing The World In The Past 85 Years

I can’t give you the name of my source...yet. It would ruin the surprise, if that’s what we want to call it after the blanket is thrown back and the subject is shown. I will, however tell you it’s a magazine that celebrated its 85th...

One-Eyed Jack And Paybacks

Enough pollyticks for awhile. I have a true story in the trucking vein I thought you might enjoy. The sequence of events happened back in the day about 1972 or so. You must forgive me if some of the facts aren’t. There are two different styles of s...

An Ageless Question

Let’s take a look back in history to Ronald Reagan’s reign as POTUS. He was a half-month short of being 70 years old when he was sworn in the first time. There were no outward signs of the loss of mental acuity in the first four years of his...

Who Will You Choose?

Going into Super Tuesday, the count shows Trump leading with 82 delegates, Cruz with 17, Rubio with 16, Kasich with 6 and Carson has 4. Looks like a landslide for The Donald doesn’t it? But wait, there’s more. A lot can change when only 125...

Drivers Formerly Known as the Knights of the Road

Do We Owe Refugees Entrance?

First off I want to tell Hillary that the word protect is not pernounced pertect in polite sirkuls. Hillary tries so very hard to use good speech. Sometimes so much so that she comes across as being phony. Hey! I’m certainly not perfect as the...

 

More on Gun Control

There are thousands of rules, regulations and laws that supposedly control guns in the United States. We do not need MORE laws. We simply need to enforce the ones already on the books, leaving the stupid laws and keeping the ones that actually make...

 

Quality Time? I Think Not

A General MacArthur Moment

For those of you concerned over where I have been the past couple months I must explain. To put it very simply … I was abducted by aliens from the planet Liberal 3. It is a planet 47 billion light years from Earth and is populated almost entirely...

 

Save Your Town … Buy Local

Let’s see now … Is that person you sit beside at a high school basketball game a local business owner? Are you friends with that person? If you answered those questions with a yes then answer this one. Are you doing some of your shopping on the...

 

Reverse Equal Opportunity

In her lame attempt to discredit me on my view on equal opportunity in hiring in America, Tess Fahlgren has missed the mark by a mile. I’m saying equal opportunity is an oxymoron. How can something be equal when it favors a certain population? In t...

An apt description of the Equal Opportunity Employment Act would be “a policy or program providing 'advantages' for people of a minority group with the aim of creating a racially equal society through preferential access to employment, education, h...

 

Think Before You Donate: Part II

This is part two about an email I have received several times over the past seven or so years. It’s been circling the Internet since 2005 and just won’t go down the drain. Until now, I have simply deleted it. This time I didn’t and this...

 

Think Before You Donate

Folks, it’s that time of year again when charities from all over the world will be pulling on your heart strings to send them money. Some of these charities are legitimate and worthy of your donation. Some are not. For the past few years I have...

 

The New Progressive Liberal American Way

Imagine you are a twenty-something single male (I’ll call you Ken) with two children and a girlfriend. You make enough money to enable you to purchase a house. The American Dream, right? Well, follow along and this is where it gets real good. A...

 

Mavs Maul Malta M-Ettes

Well, maybe “maul” isn’t the politically correct word there but at times that is just what itseemed. A mauling. The North Country Mavericks, led by Jada Sudbrack and Mickayla Johnson, whupped up on the M-Ettes 25-16 in the first game of the...

 

Jada Sudbrack Leads Lady Mavs

Although fighting a bout with what she thought was stomach flu, North Country Mavericks sophomore Jada Sudbrack had a stellar game which started off with her hitting two KWAs, a normal point and a BWA in the first minute and a half of play. Yikes,...
