President Donald Trump has managed to rile up many corners of society lately, including some in Highland County who may even have voted for him. Nearly everything I see and read shows people are looking at him only from their own personal perspective, not the big picture. That’s understandable if you are seeing a sudden rise in newsprint prices or wonder where your soybean crop will be sold this fall and for what price.
  • From tariffs to immigration, Trump is really simple

  • The only constant is change

    The evening of June 14 found me high atop the Hampton Inn (seventh floor) at the corner of U.S. 41 and I-70 in beautiful Terre Haute, Ind. My view was south, looking toward Honey Creek Mall, or what is left of it.

  • Greed, Ten Commandments, socialism and the Widow’s Mite
    Friday, June 8, 2018 1:45 AM
    Socialism, totalitarianism and other such forms, including those found in the European Union, have continued to oppress the masses to this very day and keep them from reaching their full potential.

  • What are the politics of the 'fat cats?'
    Friday, June 1, 2018 8:38 AM
    What makes a person lean left or lean right? I don’t think it is money. I still think it is their willingness to believe the government is the solution to society’s problems balanced with their willingness to give up their freedoms in order to avail themselves of government solutions. The right-wing people I know are fiercely independent and want to stay that way no matter what. Those willing to let the government step into their lives do not seem to value independence so much.

  • Socialism is not necessarily related to Christianity
    Saturday, May 26, 2018 11:55 AM
    Jesus tells us, more so than in nearly any other area of the focus of his teachings, that our Christianity and our obedience to our government are distinct and unrelated. In no other area of life does Jesus offer such a separation or compartmentalization of our activities. Simply pray for our government leaders – no matter who they are.

  • Can Pete Rose finally get into the Hall of Fame?

    On May 14, the U.S. Supreme Court, by a vote of 6-3, struck down the federal law prohibiting sports gambling. Katie bar the door.

  • Is the Fourth Estate about to get what it deserves?

    I am not sure that licensing journalists – but not those who write on the opinion page – violates the First Amendment, either. I don’t see it as any different than licensing machine guns, a law which has been in place since the 1930s, and which is not harmful to the Second Amendment. In both cases, you take wicked tools out of the hands of those with evil intent.

    What if every public discourse of or about the government was written in a style and with words we would find acceptable to a 5-year-old? What if we were not in fear of letting our children watch the White House Correspondents’ Dinner out of a need to protect them from vile talk? What if our leaders explained their positions on bills in terms a 5-year-old can understand?

    I was tired, it had been a long couple of days. The morning before, U.S. Central Time, I had departed from New Orleans. Then, via New York and Amsterdam, I had finally made my way to Helsinki. It was my very first trip to Europe. A colleague and I, representing our paper mill, which was purchasing some Finnish machinery, had arrived on Sunday, May 1, 1983, nearly 35 years ago now. It was May Day, a holiday in Finland that is the 4th of July, Cinco de Mayo, Christmas and Veterans Day all rolled into one.

    My passion will continue to be to make people think, bring up a bit of history now and then (I am of the opinion there is nothing new under the sun) and do my best to avoid baiting people. No doubt, I will fail at the last one, for it is such a delicious little tidbit in my otherwise mundane life.
