In Defense Of Christopher Columbus

There’s no evidence that supports the vicious claims against Christopher Columbus, as well as the Spanish monarchy.  In fact, they are the...

Rioting – The Coronavirus Cure

I don't know how many of you engage in social media but up until recently I only used Facebook to post family pictures and trivial things like that. Then the pandemic started and everything changed.

An Open Letter To Republicans

Today, I changed my voter registration from “Republican” to “unaffiliated.” I have spent most of my adult life registered as a Republican, working to elect Republican candidates and contributing to Republican causes. But no more. My views are solely my own, and though I hope others feel the way I do, they reflect only my views, not my wife’s or anyone else’s.

Memorial Day & the Lock-down

On Memorial Day, and everyday we should be honoring the sacrifices of those who gave their lives for our freedom. Right now more than ever we need to get busy getting this country free from the lock-downs and working on safely opening up AMERICA!

Families Suffer While Statistics are Manipulated to Create Fear

Why Obama Endorsed Joe Biden

Anyone who doubts that Barack Obama has a sense of humor should take a look at his endorsement of Joe Biden for president of the United States. Really, it’s a skilled performance, and delivered, mirabile dictu, with a straight face. Give it a try.

I’m so tired – so, so, so very tired! I’m tired every time I turn around of being called a “RACIST!” simply because I’m white. I’m tired that I’m told I have a “privileged life” simply because I’m white. I’m tired of hearing only white people are the ones capable of being racist! I’m tired of seeing people attacking police officers, burning building, looting and assaulting others while being told they are “peacefully protesting”. If I say otherwise - “Racist!”

To Mask Or Not To Mask

I’m over those defending or explaining the need of wearing “face coverings.” Raise your hand if you’ve been the victim of virtue signaling, been yelled at, or gotten the “glare” from some misguided citizen riding a high horse. How many someones have filled your social media stream with accusations of “not caring for others?” I’m done with the attempts at guilting me into compliance with “it’s your social responsibility.”

Who Can We Trust Besides Ourselves?

The World Health Organization (WHO) is aligned with China, was cut out for China. We cannot trust information coming from the WHO. In relying on information received from the WHO, Dr. Fauci admits he didn't realize how transmittable this virus was.
