If there is one thing that will always be the case no matter what period in history you might be living in, it’s the idea that the government will never pass up a chance to waste money on something that had nothing to do with the reason why they were given the money. For example, …

Sometimes, you just have to push back at people that keep pushing you. It is one of those things that show that while you might be tolerant of people acting the way that they at you are only going to let it go so far. The past couple of months, President Trump has been accused …

If there is one thing that adversity will often do, it will show you who is capable of being a leader and who should have never applied for the job. COVID has definitely proven that. The past year has given an unfortunate display of who is up to the task and who should have let …

I recently had a conversation with someone that honestly, I never thought I would hear from ever again. It was a chaplain that I knew when I was in the military. Good guy, tougher than a two-dollar steak, but one of the most honest people I have ever met in my life. He is someone …

Ted Cruz is one of those people that knows how the game is played and at the same time he knows how to blend honesty into all of it. These days, we have far too many people that try to just blend in the game playing and not so much of the honesty. He’s someone …

People always have things that happened to them in days gone by that they would probably rather not talk about, but they don’t exactly try to make a point of letting people know about them through being total hypocrites. My son when he was about sixteen, once asked me if I had ever gotten so …

While I have never been the type of person to openly censor any work of creative expression, there is the idea that there are some things that the kids might not be ready for yet. For example, I have a six-year-old nephew that will sit and watch old wrestling with me when he is over …

When I get something as a gift or money that I do not expect, I like to know where the heck it came from. If a family member suddenly handed me five thousand dollars, I would want to see the lottery ticket that caused them to have such an amount of money. Otherwise, you might …

As someone that lived through the Cold War, I can tell you that the slightest possibility that there might be nuclear involvement on any scale is frightening. I recall in the early to mid-1980s, my father was stationed at a military facility in the Panama Canal Zone. My mother and I were watching the movie …

Throughout history, we have always been able to judge leaders based on the decisions that they make. We can always look back and see what they did to figure out whether or not they were someone of good character. We can also go back and judge them based on the decisions that they didn’t make. …

One thing about people and politics, you have to keep folks happy or else they can turn on you without any notice whatsoever. That being said, that doesn’t always mean you have to give people everything that they want. You simply cannot do that, someone will inevitably get mad about something. The key is to …

It seems that every move made by a liberal politician is something that goes against what used to be considered traditional American values. Now, it just seems like with them in power, that the next couple of years are going to be a feeding frenzy against everything that we as a people used to hold …

The security of our allies in the civilized world means that we also have good security. If we keep hateful terrorist s out of as many countries as possible then it will be harder for them to recruit and form attacks on the United States. Islamic terrorism is scary in the idea that they are …

You can always tell when someone is going to be a bad leader. You can’t always place your finger on it, but it is one of those things where you can just tell something isn’t right about that person. When it comes to Joe Biden, it is one of those things where he has made …

I have always said that it is pretty rare that you have a President of the United States who is actually the person making all of the decisions. More often than not, there is a group of people that are behind him, almost the way that the Soviet Union used to have puppet leaders. Fact …

I could never be a member of a Presidential Cabinet. Not because I don’t think I couldn’t handle the stress of the situation. I have had stressful jobs before. I am thinking of the fact that people will want to know everything that you have done since you were seven and are going to ask …
