We have nothing to fear but fear itself?

This was a phrase used by Franklin D. Roosevelt in his first inaugural address of March 4, 1933. As with many famous lines, this one was borrowed from an essay by Sir Francis Bacon, who said, “Nothing is terrible except fear itself.” The use of fear in the political agenda is historic and generational. Every…

It’s Easy Being Green, When You Have No Choice

February 24, 2015 I’m involved in a new film about watermelons; you know, the zealous environmentalists who are green on the outside and red (like Marx and Lenin) on the inside.   The movie (available on DVD) is titled: It’s Easy Bring Green, When You Have No Choice. As you think about the title for a…

Laughing My Way into Hot Water Again!

Read an article yesterday that made me laugh out loud. It was by a ‘scientist’ (name withheld to protect their ignorance) from a university (name withheld to protect any sane graduate that might have escaped the general trend).

Civilizations Fail

The decline of the United States is now being openly discussed on the news programs. The question being asked is not so much the fact of decline, as it is the choice of Obama, King Barry if you will, to cause a decline in America. The thinking is; if decline is a choice, it can…

Climate Change

                It feels just a touch smug of me to talk about climate change immediately after one of the harshest winters in memory, but an article caught my eye.  After years of having good people tell me I was blind to the evidence, the CEO of Greenpeace, not exactly a conservative fellow, stated that global…

Here’s to a better 2014

The following article will be published in the January edition of the Buffalo Gap [Texas] News Roundup. I’m sure glad 2013 is now in history’s rearview mirror and I’m hopeful that the road ahead in 2014 has fewer massive potholes.  Of course, once again, ruthless politicians created most of the past years’ problems for our…
