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 […]

Tell The Truth

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

Now is a moment for strength, not weakness. Strength requires facing the truth. As the Good Book says, “Thou shall not bear false witness.”  On Jan. 6, domestic terrorists broke into the United States Capitol to stop the confirmation of the Electoral College vote. What we saw was disgusting. Not since the Civil War has […]

Shut Down This Circus

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

Like a Carnival Barker, Donald Trump is a master of exaggeration and misrepresentation.  It is a great quality for someone trying to sell a lie.  It is a horrible quality for a public servant. In the closing days of the campaign Donald is selling a whooper.  We’ve “rounded the corner” on Covid 19.  We may […]

Reckless Endangerment

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

Reckless behavior is shameful. Since February 7 Donald Trump knew that Covid 19 was a deadly airborne disease.  He knew it was a killer.  He played it down, and it has now killed more than 210,000 Americans. For the last eight months Donald has relentlessly mocked America’s doctors, scientists and anyone concerned about Covid 19.  […]

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 […]

Donald's Deadly Lies

Thursday, September 17th, 2020

Donald’s chaos is producing predictable results.  Every day he stirs the pot.  His chaos makes it difficult to save American lives and jobs.  On February 7, 2020, Donald privately confessed the truth to Bob Woodward.  His confession was recorded for the entire world to hear. “It goes through air Bob. You know, the touch, you […]

Donald's Deception

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

Teresa Horn from Tahlequah Oklahoma died on August 28.  Four days early she tested positive for Covid 19.  Four days before that she was teaching class.  She had taught Special Education for 26 years.   The Center for Disease Control reported this week a total of 183,000 deaths.  Teresa Horn’s death will add to that number.  […]

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. […]

Post Office Trust

Thursday, August 20th, 2020

The Constitution (Article 1, Section 8) authorizes Congress to create and fund a Post Office.  The Founding Fathers foresaw the usefulness of universal, publicly owned mail service.  Letter carriers have become some of the most trusted members of our communities. We all know the traditional pledge of the Post Office.  “Neither snow nor rain nor […]
