  • Stumptalk: Detrimental political racism in america

    None of us were born with preexisting prejudices. Intelligent people will recognize and remove learned prejudices that are wrong. One of those would be if you either support or oppose a politician based on the perceived race of that politician.

  • Lion and the Lamb: The crisis in the Ukraine

    Once again our nation is trying to decide how to respond to another political crisis in the Middle East—an area that has produced a continuing series of "threats" to us and our empire, such as in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Iran, and Syria. This new crisis, however, takes us into a slightly different part of the world—the Ukraine. Its territory has had over a thousand years of tumultuous history, including being ruled by Russia since the 18th century, but a brief look at its most recent years will help provide some additional understanding of the current crisis.

  • We the People: Old and grumpy

    There’s a lot to like about old white men. Many are wonderful dads, uncles, grandpas, brothers, husbands, coaches, neighbors and friends. They advanced our cause in WWII, Korea and, yes, Vietnam. They worked in factories, government offices, and on family farms. They developed and sustained businesses to help our economy grow. Some are great thinkers in our universities, awesome writers, scientists, and artists.

  • LION AND THE LAMB: A time for earth-empathy

    This past winter with its snow, freezing rain, and bone-chilling low temperatures has been a brutal one for many parts of our country. Although our county escaped the worst of it, the words “polar vortex” jumped out of the news reports into our consciousness here. It was still hard, however, to understand that all this cold had something to do with climate change and global warming.

  • WE THE PEOPLE: Reforming education? (Part II)

    Last month, I promised to enlarge upon the forces that are attempting to overthrow our locally-controlled public education system. “Following the money” helps, as it does with almost all issues of political importance.

  • STUMPTALK: History continues to repeat itself

    Propaganda was the key to victory for the communists in the Russian Revolution of 1917. Less than ten percent of the population was communist, but that ten percent controlled the media of the day.

  • Lion and the Lamb: Sticks, stones, and hurting words

    Most of us have grown up knowing some version of that children's proverb "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words (names) will never hurt me."
