Don’t Bear False Witness

Thursday, October 14th, 2021

Justice requires the truth.  As Americans we require anyone testifying to do it under oath.  Oath breakers face penalties for perjury. The truth is no less important in other aspects of life.  Both Civil Law and the Bible made bearing false witness a crime.  Civil law calls it liable.  Psalm 6 calls bearing false witness […]

I’m Not Scared of Words

Tuesday, October 12th, 2021

Every time we turn around Fox News and the rest of the professional conservatives cry like babies about scary socialism.  It doesn’t take much education to know they haven’t a clue what socialism is.  They simply want to scare and paralyze American. In the early 1900’s apartment and factory fires killed thousands.  As a society […]

Learn, Not Repeat, is the Goal

Thursday, September 30th, 2021

                A dedicated group of volunteers are trying to teach their neighbors the history of Grayson County Texas.   Grayson County has a chance to learn from its mistakes.  Melissa Thiel is leading the effort and has rallied local business owners and clergy.  They want the following statement on a marker in front of the Courthouse.  […]

States’ Rights Deception

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

Big Government conservatives like to hide behind the slogan States’ Rights.  They want you to believe they are standing up for you against the mean federal government.  They have relied on this deception since the beginning of the Republic. Southern planters knew America’s revolutionary rhetoric threatened their vast wealth and power.  The Declaration of Independence […]

Cruelty is a Feature, Not an Accident

Thursday, September 16th, 2021

The terrorist attacks on 9/11 ignited the rise of Big Government Conservatism.  Just a few months before, George W. Bush had won a razor thin election by presenting himself as a compassionate conservative.  Within days of the September attacks his mask fell off. Bush started to channel the blood lust rising in conservative circles.  I […]

The Best Hope for Peace

Thursday, August 19th, 2021

I was born in Heidelberg, Germany, in a United States military hospital.  My dad proudly served in the US Army for 27 years.  He was there to defend against a Soviet invasion. The US Army first arrived in Europe during World War Two (1939-1945). It was part of an Allied Coalition that defeated the NAZIs.  […]

Seeds of Sedition

Thursday, July 29th, 2021

The January 6 attack on American Democracy grew from seeds planted 40 years earlier.  In the 1980s conservative activists created incendiary rhetoric to attack our government.  Since the New Deal, conservatives had lost to a wave of progressive legislation.  The Federal Government improved the lives of seniors with Social Security and Medicare.  It improved the […]

Promote the General Welfare

Thursday, July 22nd, 2021

Taxes fund public services.  A vote is our voice for funding these services.  As a community, we decide on which services to fund or how they are funded.  We benefit from these services either directly or indirectly.  Direct benefits are pretty easy to understand.  If you have a child in a school, then you and […]

Voting Preserves Our Republic

Thursday, July 15th, 2021

Voting is the life blood of a democracy.  Votes express the will of the many to direct the actions of the few.  Voting preserves our Republic. Restricting voting kills democracy. Americans have struggled over the last 232 years to expand voting.  In the beginning, woman couldn’t vote.  Slaves couldn’t vote.  Men without property couldn’t vote. […]

Uncle Sam Needs You

Thursday, July 8th, 2021

The World watched on January 6, 2021, as criminals swarmed the United States Capital.  The thugs wanted to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.   Most of us looked on in horror. Congress had gathered in a solemn, constitutional ceremony to count the Electoral College votes.  Each state had certified the results.  Courts from every corner […]
