WHEN

August 27th, 2014

When oh when, will the words in this column ever be really read and paid attention to by those most in need of doing so?  I mean even with only a “sixth grade equivalent” education, it seems to me they could still do what I just mentioned, but will they?

REFRESHING

August 27th, 2014

It is very refreshing to read a column so well written expressing such a reasonable and common sense response to what is currently best known as our “Ferguson” situation.

GRESSIVE

August 27th, 2014

To me any one project of a “progressive”, as soon as one or two layers are peeled off’n it, will often reveal it to actually be “regressive”……….then too, quite often an “agressive” attitude is used to push the project……….therefore and henceforth, the one shorter and simpler word……”gressive”………to describe all such like-minded folks will work just fine for me.

UP

August 26th, 2014

The author of this column is moving higher and higher up on my list of favorite columnists…………yep, I find myself enjoying more and more of his columns (and yes, probably because I also agree with’em)…………certainly I agree with this most recent of his columns.

CONFRONT

August 24th, 2014

Personally, I think it’s way past time that a lot more folks confront the reality of the terror and barbarism of acts by fanatical Muslims………rather than to continue to seemingly simply “bury their head in the sand”……….and again, personally, I think it is well past the time that supposedly “moderate” Muslims step forward with some loud and effective protesting against the fanatical Muslims within their religion, otherwise they are at least acquiescing to acts of barbaric terrorism and are therefore morally complicit in its performance, be they the local butcher or be they a celebrity or be they a prominent politician……and these thoughts of mine seem to be strongly supported by the contents of this column.

GEAR

August 23rd, 2014

Until I’d read this column, I was not completely decided on my opinion of today’s law enforcement equipment, or “gear” as some might call it………………but now?……well, I am no longer undecided………yep, I am all for whatever equipment, or “gear”, our law enforcement people are able to get their hands on that will increase their own safety as they take the high risks so often involved in providing safety to the public they serve.

CONVINCED

August 22nd, 2014

On the subject of this column, my thoughts have been wavering back and forth for some time, but only by a little bit…..mostly they wanted to side with “drill baby, drill”…….and now, after reading this column, my thoughts are wavering no more, nope, not even a little bit…..yep, I am convinced, so now I say for sure “drill baby, drill”.

CURRENT

August 22nd, 2014

This column addresses two current news items………….and its comments relative to each item are to me “right on”.

SHAME

August 21st, 2014

Although it’s a real shame that the vast majority of folks in this country are so un-involved in politics, meaning not really aware of what is going on, yet, I understand since for my many younger years I too was way too involved with “family” to spend the time needed to be fully aware of the politics going on at that time……but then I have no regrets nor should that vast majority of folks today, since “family” is really the main thing of all things……unfortunately though, when we are having “politics of destruction” such as now, the very thing we treasure most, “family”, will at some point be deeply and negatively affected…..and it is so very sad that this point seems to be approaching quite rapidly…..but then I have always been, am and always will be, a pessimist, therefore I do truly hope the optimists prove me to be very, very wrong.

And why do I feel this way?  Well, in a word….Obama…..although what really bothers me much more than him, is knowing how many folks there are in this country that voted for him….and even worse, not just once but twice.

NAME

August 21st, 2014

Beyond any and all doubt, the most ridiculous “news” item of my lifetime, up until now anyhow, is the uproar being spurred on even by our Senate’s majority leader over the Washington, DC professional football team’s name of “Redskins”…….now, I have absolutely no doubt that somewhere there is at least one, maybe even several, Indians, or Native Americans, or “Redskins”, who are truly offended by this group of game players going by this name, however, I truly believe that the vast majority of Indians, or Native Americans, or “Redskins” are not offended, in fact, I strongly suspect that a majority of them take pride in having a professional sports team named after them…….I mean really, what kinda team would ever name itself after someone or some thing that they thought to be negative or derogatory, that might reflect upon the team in any way other than positive?  For sure any and every team has and will pick a name for itself that they think will make them sound strong, sure and proud, therefore it is certainly absurd to think that any team has or will, name itself after anyone or anything other than what it thinks is something very, very positive……..but again, the main stupidity in this “name” uproar is to me the ridiculousness of it all, what with all the other really, really important and dangerous things now going on in our world that should be given far, far more attention.
