Relief and Recovery

Thursday, February 11th, 2021

Every day I walk my dog.  The daily pilgrimage started about ten years ago.  At the time empty lots lined the newly laid street.  Today it is a neighborhood with about 50 homes. I watched each one built over the years.  Not one builder started with the roof.  Each started with the foundation and proceeded […]

I apologize

Thursday, January 28th, 2021

I’ve been involved in public politics for more than 20 years now. Criticism and disagreements are all part of the process. Often it is just name calling without any substance.  Every once in a while, I will get a comment that makes me stop and think a little bit more. The following letter did just that. The […]

Truth Creates Unity

Thursday, January 21st, 2021

We all know to take the keys away from a drunk driver.  Drinking impairs decision making and judgment. In government, lies produce the same results.  Over 400,000 of our neighbors have died because of Covid 19 lies and political denial.  Will our democracy be next? On Jan. 22, 2020 a reporter asked Donald Trump whether […]

State of Denial

Thursday, December 17th, 2020

I thought that we lived in the state of Texas.  Looking at Republican politicians, we must live in the state of denial.  Joe Biden won 306 Electoral College votes and 81,283,495 individual votes.  Joe Biden easily won the Presidency.  There is no doubt.  Even Republicans in the states Biden won, say Biden won.  No lawsuit […]

The Pretender

Thursday, December 10th, 2020

America has never had a pretender before.  Pretenders were regular features of European monarchies.  In monarchies the government, called the Crown, was the personal property of the king.  It passed from father to son or, rarely, to his daughter. In America, we have a Republic.  The term “republic” derives from the Latin phrase “res publica.” […]

America Is Moving Forward

Thursday, November 12th, 2020

America is moving forward.  We have some big problems to face, and name calling will not solve them.  Leadership requires correctly identifying real problems, developing solutions to those problems and then implanting the solutions. As all of us can see, Covid 19 did not magically disappear after the election.  In fact it is spreading at […]

Healthcare Peril

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

If we learned anything over the last 7 months, it is that Donald Trump would make a horrible healthcare provider.  Imagine asking him if you had cancer.  Donald would lie to keep you from panicking.  Contrary to the fact that quick treatment could save your life.  Covid 19 has killed more than 200,000 Americans. Who […]

Calm, Compassionate and Thoughtful

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

As I grew up, I was taught the qualities of a President.  Presidents were calm, compassionate and thoughtful.  Presidents lead by example.  Presidents put the interest of the country above themselves.  Presidents sought a United States of America. Above all, President offered a vision for a better America.  They wanted to part of the solution. […]
