Greeting fellow blog followers. I’ve been absent from this blog for a couple of months, and decided it was time to get back to it. I recently received a copy of the Iprimis newsletter published by Hillsdale college that featured an article written by Dr. Laryy P. Arnn, president of Hillsdale College. I thought I’d share some of his thoughts with you, and I’ve interjected some thoughts of my own as well.. So without further ado, here is my latest post. ENJOY.
Dr. Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College, wrote… Continue reading
In a few days we will again celebrate our independence from the bondage of England. I wonder how many more of these celebrations we have left before we are back in bondage.
Alexander Tytler had a theory about democracies, or free governments, that he likened to a circle of bondage. It is written that he didn’t have much faith in democracies; that he was more of a monarchist himself. He was writing at the time about Athenian democracies. Little did he realize how profound his writing would be regarding the United States in describing our evolution from freedom back into… Continue reading
I keep reading on Facebook and other places where the establishment Republicans, and even some conservative Republicans have stated that if Trump gets the nomination for president, they will vote for Hillary, or they won’t bother to vote at all. As I see it, every non-vote for the Donald would put Madam Hillary one vote closer to the presidency.
This makes absolutely no sense to me. I liken it to cutting the nose off an ugly face just to spite the face. If one were to do that, the ugly face would in… Continue reading
Why Is That Trump Feller So Popular With The People and Not With The Establishment Republicans—A Guest Post by Rube
Greetings folks. Well, Rube asked if he could weigh in again today. He had some observations that coincide with mine, so I said, “yes, by all means, let’s see what you have to say.” So as usual, without further ado, here’s Rube.
Howdy, folks. I was a listenin’ ta that Rush Limbaugh feller on the radio the other day, and I reckon as how he said some things I just had to agree with. He was a talkin’ about that Trump… Continue reading
This post ran last July about the time the primary season started, but in light of the tone of the primary elections, I think it bears a second go around.
I think America needs a new major political party—not a third party, but a real, and viable, 2nd party. The problem in American politics today is that we are living under the delusion that we have a two party system; but the reality is, we have a quasi two party system with a few splinter parties; and we have only one… Continue reading
Greetings friends: In an earlier post I mentioned that I was going to refrain from writing about current events for a while. However, in a post script, I mentioned that Rube would still be contributing from time to time. This is one of those times. So here’s Rube. Enjoy.
Howdy agin, folks. It’s been a spell since I wrote on Will’s blog, but I’m back fer another one. I hope you enjoy it.
That feller Donald Trump has been a leadin’ in the… Continue reading
Greetings friends. Back in the year 2000, Bill Corbett wrote a tribute to a dying friend that he had known all his life. I posted that tribute on this blog a couple years ago. With Bill’s permission, I’d like to share that piece with you once more. I think it is even more apropos today. Bill has given me permission to edit it just a bit to more appropriately fit the times. One of those changes is to change it from a soliloquy to a pending obituary. So without… Continue reading
The issues I’m going to discuss in this blog post are based on the situation as I see it in the United States. Many persons will disagree with me, but I suspect many will also agree with my view of things.
Kakistocracy, noun: A government where the worst of the worse are in power. Have we morphed into a kakistocracy?
I think we have.
Let’s start with the top spot. Do we have a man acting as our president whose so-called long form birth certificate may be in question? An official law… Continue reading
There is an old song that was written back in 1929 by Andy Razaf and Paul Denniker, titled S’posin’ that has been recorded by several recording artists over the ensuing years, including Bing Crosby, Perry Como, and Frank Sinatra. The title is slang for the word supposing. If you will indulge me, I would like to do a little “s’posin” of my own here. And, please, if there are any politically correct buffs reading this post, don’t read into my use of the word s’posin’ as… Continue reading
Following are excerpts from a column I wrote for the Idaho State Journal a few years ago, which are still apropos today.
When I was in the farming business, we had a term for tractors and trucks that weren’t up to the task of pulling or transporting the loads we expected of them. We referred to them as “gutless wonders.” We have Republican members of Congress to whom I would give that same moniker. The United States is facing major crises and… Continue reading
