Lightning Hit My Heart

Seems like Bernie Sanders made quite a stir when he spoke at Liberty University recently.  Following a story from my online news feed,  I found a fascinating post by a double-degreed LU graduate who’s not only a bona fide credentialed pastor but also a clinical psychologist serving in Las Vegas.  His first name is Jim […]

Operation: Local Stumble

I learned early in my Army training that successful operations depended upon well-trained capable personnel, strong leadership, and a supportive Chain of Command.  Most obstacles can be overcome with these assets in-place.  Recently it came to my attention what my volunteer efforts were not receiving. An organization that I have been supporting was planning an […]

Do Not Kill Police Officers, Black People, White People or Any People

By Glenn Mollette I had never heard of Chicago suburb Fox Lake police officer Joe Gliniewicz.  Recently, three men murdered him. Sadly I now know about what a great man, and police officer he was. Could this be a good time to reinstate the sixth commandment? You might know it better as “Thou Shalt Not […]

Playing the Trump Card

I used to be quite a nice guy.  Yeah, at least in my own humble, but usually right, even far right, opinion.  I was like Mr. Rogers in The Neighborhood’s next door neighbor.  But recently a new phenomenon has appeared on the American scene.  That has made me rethink my suave and debonair manner.  I […]

The Trumpenstein Monster

For at least 30-plus years the GOP has pushed a white supremacy agenda to divide and conquer the electorate. Lee Atwater wrote that since outright racial slurs weren’t selling the party platform like hotcakes anymore, they needed to switch to code words all too well known today as dog whistles – meaning anything liberals approved. […]

Greatest Climate Change Event Ever

“Tell me not, in mournful numbers, life is an empty dream!  Dead is the soul that slumbers and things are not as they seem.  Life is real and the grave is not its goal; from dust thy art, to dust return, this was not spoken of the soul.” (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, A Psalm of Life) […]

First Amendment Defense Act

Representative Sam Graves is against The First Amendment Defense Act (H.R. 2802) that would prevent the federal government from discriminating against individuals, businesses, and organizations, based on their beliefs that marriage is the union of a man and woman or that sexual relations are reserved for marriage. The bill simply affirms that the federal government […]

More Outsourcing?

Dr. Tobler talks a good game, doesn’t He?  But when it comes down to what upset me – the outsourcing of jobs our community needs and that should be done onsite in our own hospital – I can’t agree with him.  And, if my information is correct, there are other jobs that may be lost […]

Re: Climate Change

It is astonishing how little perspective many people have about our place in expanse of the universe. There’s only one planet in the universe that supports life as we know it. Our interplanetary probes in this solar system have proven we are alone on Earth. And we don’t have the technology yet to search other […]


Most folks have probably already heard about the FCC’s plan to expand lifeline broadband to all low-income households in the very near future, even those without school-age children in the home.  That’s a good thing for seniors, many of whom are already too isolated in their communities, and it will enable them to keep in […]
