  • The artificial world

    When you are out and about, be aware of your surroundings. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t dismiss the feeling, look a little closer. Our artificial world is just that – artificial.
  • Why it is important to speak English in the U.S.
    A common language provides a basis for common objectives. We now have people inside our borders who clearly are here to exploit our generosity while ignoring our principles. Not being willing to learn our common language is the first clue when it comes to their motivations.
  • How in the world did we get here?
    Today, we are collectively running around with our hair on fire. It is hard to believe that conditions could have deteriorated so far so fast. What caused this?
  • What is beauty?
    The powers that be feed us lots of information that may not necessarily be in our best interest. We must do our own digging to ascertain what is best for the country and our children.
  • Pay attention!
    As I see it, you have three choices: be afraid of everything and do nothing, be pragmatic and judiciously consider all inputs you get daily from your body and the outside world, or throw caution to the wind and ignore all signs and signals.
  • The surprising epiphany at the National Farm Machinery Show
    I attended the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky. on Feb. 16. This is something I have wanted to do for years, and finally matters aligned in such a way that it could happen.
  • Modern slavery
    Our federal government is no better than the citizens when it comes to responsible spending. We have gone from a national debt in the single digit trillions to the mid-30 trillions in less than 20 years.  The day of reckoning is coming for this, too, and we will all suffer from it.
  • The Constitution seems to be holding its own, but...
    The question in my mind is this: In this age of disrespect, will Colorado respect the decision of the Supreme Court?
  • Canary in the coal mine
    When one looks at the history of countries with shady governments, the genesis of this problem has usually been manipulation of their court system. Whether they be “banana republics,” dictatorships or something else, the path from a well-organized, honest government to a poorly organized, dishonest government has often gone through the courthouse.
  • Elite antipode
    Being an elite or being humble is, again, a complex relationship phenomenon. Everyone of us is an elite to some and appears humble to others. More humility would serve society well.
  • It is not Democrat or Republican
    It is not Democrat or Republican – nor liberal or conservative. It is the elites versus the rest of us.  
  • Hunter Biden, Jan. 6 and the southern border
    It is just my opinion, the 2,000 who entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, were of no more and probably less evil intent that many of those crossing the southern border during 2022.
  • Dates
    The other experience I have this time of year is that I hang a new calendar in my office. January seems to go along at a reasonable pace, so does February. Then all of a sudden, I am looking at November.
  • Environmentalist in the checkout lane
    My environmental friends, the ones who are still talking to me after similar discussions to this above, ask me what it will take for me to believe in global warming (now called climate change, since the rise seems to be in doubt among even the staunches acolytes). My answer? When the full third week in February in Cleveland averages a daytime temperature of 85 F, I am fully on board.
  • Stop the steal
    Corporations, small businesses and other entities have been stealing time from each of us in a planned and systematic way for many years to enrich themselves. It is time for this to stop.
  • The death of DEI
    DEI, we hardly knew ye. DEI is one of the fastest liberal concepts to come and go in nearly the same breath. Living in the bucolic lands of Highland County, you may never have had to encounter DEI. Lucky you.
