Gutless Wonder Republicans—or Maybe I should say Republicrats.

Following are excerpts from a column I wrote for the Idaho State Journal a few years ago, which  are still apropos today.

John Boehner

Republicrat John Boehner

Mitch McMonnell

Republicrat Mitch McConnell

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

Our Acting And Disingenuous President—The Eyes Are The Window Into The Soul

They say the eyes are the window into a man’s soul.  Look into the eyes in this image.  Are they the eyes of an honest man?  They are certainly the eyes of a determined man. A few days ago, Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) wrote a piece in the AMAC newsletter asking our acting president to speak out against the shooting of policemen that have been occurring throughout the country lately. I wrote a response to that article in the comment section.  I have repeated it here.

Mr. Weber:… Continue reading

Comparing The American People To Rip Van Winkle.

I believe we Americans bear a certain similarity to Rip Van Winkle in that we, metaphorically speaking, have been sleeping for the past one hundred years or so while many of our liberties have faded away.

Most of us are familiar with Washington Irving’s story of Rip Van Winkle; at least we should be, it was a story told to all school children in years past. I don’t know why, but I got to thinking the other day about this story and how Rip Van Winkle slept twenty years of his life away.  I… Continue reading

Are American Citizens Becoming Like Lemmings?

Lemming FacsimileThere is a tale about Lemmings that is alleged to be mythical.  Mythical or not,  these little rodents  are  portrayed as suicidal zombies that will follow a leader en masse to their demise. Americans appear to be more and more like these little critters every day.

The liberal news media, and the Progressive politicians, for whatever reason, continue to spread the propaganda that capitalism is evil and greedy, that income equalization (as they like to refer to it) is benevolent and fair.  And just like Lemmings, a good number… Continue reading

An Open Letter to Republicrat John Boehner

Greetings folks.  I have an interesting topic to discuss today.

Bill Corbett received a letter from House Speaker John Boehner a while back.  In that letter the Speaker was making a pitch for Bill to send the  National Republican Congressional Committee a donation for the purpose of electing conservatives to Congress in the next election (which is an oxymoron of sorts; a liberal Republicrat making a plea for conservatives).   Included in the Speaker’s letter was a personal check in the amount of $100.00 made out to the… Continue reading

Howdy folks.  Well, I recently came into the possession of a couple books about two of our more modern day philosophers—Mark Twain and Will Rogers.  They might not qualify to be philosophers like them fellers of ancient days such as Aristotle, or Confucius, or Plato or Socrates, but I reckon as how they still qualify as philosophers, anyhow.… Continue reading

The Establishment Republican Party needs more republicans.

Will Edwinson PhotoIf the national Republican Party expects to survive, it needs to stop listening to Democrats and their allies in the main stream media,  and  start listening to its real base.  There are too many Republicrats in control of the Republican Party right now.

Many  years ago, back in he early 1960s, I was a delegate to the Idaho State Republican convention.  During the general assembly, an elderly gentleman who was highly regarded in the party, gave an impassioned speech  stressing the point that the Republican Party needed to broaden its base.… Continue reading

Could Dr. Ben Carson Be The George Washington and Abe Lincoln of The 21st Century?

Will Edwinson PhotoRight now, the United States is a deeply divided nation; one that needs some glue to mend it back together.  On the one hand we have those who are looking for a president who will steer us back to Constitutional principles of government in order to create more jobs and ensure a restoration of liberty.  On the other hand, there are those who are seemingly looking for a king and are only concerned with the continuance of the nanny state with its freebies and entitlements.

Donald Trump, on the Republican side says something on the order… Continue reading
