Call It Like It Is

Why must we protect people from the truth? We are taught that truth can be hurtful and I suppose that is so. But you know what; sometimes those jeans do make them look fat. My son played flag football for several years but they didn’t keep score cause they didn’t want someone to lose. Everyday, people lose. It’s part of… (more…)

Goodbye – Hello

I bought this car from my little brother. He drove it for a while then it experienced some catastrophic mechanical failures and ‘sat up’ in my parents back yard for several months. A time came when I needed a car, so I made a deal with Scott to get it fixed and buy it from him. That was in about… (more…)

Simple Politics

I don’t like complicated. It gives me tired head. I don’t want complicated theology. I don’t want complicated cars. I don’t want complicated menus and I don’t want complicated politics. But it seems there are those among us who enjoy taking the simple jewelry of any subject and turning them into a tangled mess of tiny chains that require tweezers,… (more…)

Hear Me Now – Beleive Me Later

I have seen, and you have as well, a parent stand and talk, threaten, bargain, negotiate, cry, yell and even throw things in an effort to get their own child to do what they ask. But if the child knows that the parent is only making racket and will likely never follow through on their shrill threats, they have no… (more…)

A Case for Optimism

I love the movie, The Postman. It got a bad rap. The year is 2013; there is no government and no communication. There are militias that rule over various territories. The Postman (Costner) is a drifter trying to survive. He finds a bag of mail and a skeleton wearing a postal workers uniform. He assumes the identity of the Postman… (more…)

The Price of Gas

Okay, here’s the deal. I am a free market capitalist. I think the market should drive the cost of goods and services. I’m not against profits. But I have to say that I’m against crooked thieves who practice gouging, extortion and screwing the consumer because they can. There are many elements in this equation, but I want to just address… (more…)

The Exile Continues

Last November, I went on a self-imposed exile from the News, Talk Radio and News television programs that involve people screaming at one another. I thought it would last for 30 days. My family said I would never make it – I was too “hooked”. It’s now been seven months.  I’ve focused on music and good reading material. Through this,… (more…)

Where is Kevin Arnold?

Last week, Brittany and I were watching TV and caught an episode of The Wonder Years I had not seen before. It was the one about choosing teams for basketball.  In that horrible way that we all experienced, the coach selected certain boys to be captains and they took turns choosing the players they wanted on their teams. Of course… (more…)

I Need a Famine

John Stossel does those, Give Me a Break programs on ABC. I like them because most of the time he is saying things the rest of us think but don’t have a platform to speak about. Like why when you buy a box of Pop Tarts – and the box is 30% empty. Like we’re to dumb to know they’re… (more…)

Dont Forget Marian

This past week our souls were once again assaulted by evil. And once again the nobility that God placed within the heart of humans by his own will, in his own image shined through and over the evil that was so weakly displayed. For this spineless man, (no I wont use his name) whose greatest courage was the cowardly act… (more…)
