Let’s Go Joe!

Thursday, August 25th, 2022

Between January 20, 2001 and July 14, 2008 prices at the gas pump rose from $1.47 per gallon to $4.11 per gallon.  During that extended price rise, two Texas oil men sat in the Oval Office and made decisions.  Dramatically, gas prices fell to $1.61 by December 2008.   George W. Bush and Dick Cheney created […]

Team USA

Thursday, August 11th, 2022

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it gets better.  Since Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the global recovery from Covid 19 stalled.  Global traders panic, driving up prices and clogging supply chains. Market fears of a new, and wider, disruption never materialized, however.  Energy supply remained strong, as Europeans carefully rebalanced their energy […]

Poisoned Fields

Thursday, February 3rd, 2022

In Matthew Chapter 13, Jesus told a parable about a sower. Since farming was a common occupation, it wasn’t hard to understand.  Seeds, like words, require fertile soil to grow. Teachers can only do so much. Anyone familiar with growing plants knows, however, that with a little work, a farmer can prepare the soil.  Adding […]

Old Question, Same Answer

Thursday, December 30th, 2021

One of the first stories in the Bible recounts the relationship between Cain and his younger brother Abel.  Cain famously killed Able because God praised Abel’s gifts. After the killing, God asked Cain where to find Abel.  Cain angrily replied “Am I my brother’s keeper?” We never get a direct answer to that question. There […]

Coming Covid Winter?

Thursday, November 18th, 2021

The Covid 19 vaccine has been a lifesaver for millions of Americans.  Nearly 59% of Americans over 12 have taken advantage of this pro-life drug.  The unvaccinated patients account for nearly all deaths and hospitalizations. Unfortunately, we live a region of the country that still believes lies about Covid and the vaccine.  For example, while […]

Who Is Playing Dr. Death Now?

Thursday, November 4th, 2021

In the 1980s Jack Kevorkian made headlines by advocating for assisted suicide.  Kevorkian, a medical doctor, argued that terminally ill patients had the right to die with dignity.  When the state of Michigan discovered that he had helped his patients die, he lost his medical license, and prosecutors they put him on trial.    Prosecutors […]

Covid: Think Globally, Active Locally

Thursday, August 26th, 2021

I don’t know about you, but I started off my summer with hope.  Together—united as one nation–we had turned the corner on Covid 19.  The experts were right.  Masks and physical distancing saved lives and bought time for many of us to get vaccinated. In June, however, conservative politicians decided it was time to surrender.  […]

Can you do a little?

Friday, August 13th, 2021

First conservatives told us to sacrifice seniors.  Now, they want us to sacrifice teachers and school children.  Over 600,000 Americans have already died.  Conservatives call this Pro Life. In March of 2020, Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick objected to Covid 19 mitigation efforts.  He said, “No one reached out to me and said, ‘As a […]

Never Too Late To Learn

Thursday, August 5th, 2021

I hate to repeat myself, but maybe now somebody is willing to listen.  I wrote the following on June 26, 2021.  I have only edited a little to update a few data points.  This discussion is life or death. The vaccines are highly safe and effective.  Government and private researchers worked diligently to develop and […]

Vaccines are Pro Life

Thursday, July 1st, 2021

Since February, the United States of America has been making steady progress in the fight against Covid 19.  Public safety measures such as mask wearing and physical distancing slowed the spread of the virus.  We bought time for the development of several vaccines. The vaccines are highly safe and effective.  Government and private researchers worked […]
