We are living in some challenging and complicated times. Back in the day when I was growing up, you could turn on the news and feel comfortable with the reporting. It could be Cronkite, Jennings, or Brokaw. News shows like 60 minutes were a standard to get to the point with several influential reporters like… Continue reading Trust
Conspiracy theorists exist everywhere and there is never a lack of opportunity for them to latch on to something. I guess if you look at everything from a critical and distrustful eye you can always find something that looks odd and questionable. You see this with presidential assassinations, there was Lincoln, and most famously with… Continue reading The Deep State ???
Remember, when John Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.." It is time to step up everybody. Not everything is about you. It is time we all pull together if we want to go back to the way we were. The numbers… Continue reading Self-Isolation Is Not So Bad
Here is my opinion on the virus topic. It is very odd what a polarizing effect a virus is having, which is so unlike Americans and the country where I grew up.

This is why I get really bothered by politics and politicians in general that do not understand history and how economics and freedom are linked. Socialism has never worked in the way some people would like you to believe. Sure, they point to the free medical and education all the time, this is basically the… Continue reading This Is Why Socialism Is Wrong
I keep hearing this, for several years now, and since we are in full-blown election season it is a constant. Usually, it is Bernie Sanders as it was his mantra last election season, but what does it mean? The dollar value is always $15.00 an hour, but why is that the magic number? Why does… Continue reading What Is A Living Wage ?
The Australian Crisis What is happening in Australia is terrible. The country needs help from everybody and looking at those photos of all those animals is killing me. I heard it has been estimated that 1 billion animals are affected and some species could be totally wiped out. The question now becomes, did global warming… Continue reading Global Warming
