My long time followers dating back to my days running my own investigative weekly newspaper in Amarillo know not only that I predicted what we’re seeing with the Trump “presidency” and the Republican-controlled Congress. In short, my views of the Republican Party evolved from seeing it as an… Read more

The Texas State Board of Education has, once again, made a mockery of itself by when it cast preliminary votes to eliminate the contributions to our nation by Helen Keller and Hillary Clinton. The claim was these changes were to "streamline" the curricula. That, of course, is bogus — an inst… Read more

Fall has arrived. It doesn’t seem like it with our rather warm weather, but trust me, it’s definitely on its way. I’m so excited because Fall is my absolute FAVORITE season. I love the cooler weather (when it in fact does finally arrive) and love putting out my fall decor. Read more

The New York Times has dropped an unprecedented bomb on the United States public with its publication of an anonymous Op-Ed piece attributed to a senior official in the Trump administration. The rationale for the anonymity is to protect the official’s position in the administration while inf… Read more

Sen. John McCain’s death from brain cancer last week will, as others pointed out, change the nature of the United States Senate. His was one of the few voices in the Republican Party to openly oppose and criticize the illegitimate president, Donald Trump. After all, what the late senator end… Read more

A few of my buddies were trying to guess how much time President Trump has in office. One said his health would make him resign, another said he would resign to save his family members from being indicted and we all agreed (although not tested) that a sitting president cannot be indicted.

Thursday’s Beto O’Rourke town hall meeting was well worth the two hours I spent in that hall. Before Beto’s 35-minute speech, I enjoyed District 27 Congressional candidate Eric Holguin’s opening remarks and Omar Rashid’s introductory remarks. Many thanks to the volunteers who put in the hard… Read more

It didn’t take long for Michael Cloud to show his true colors. Like almost every Republican, he was sworn in and immediately went to the United States House of Representatives Republican Cloakroom to have his spine removed. And, what little is left of his intellectual honesty cratered when h… Read more

The end of July marks the actual “one year anniversary date” of my official retirement. As you can see, I’ve managed to finish at least 24 blogs and get them posted. Not exactly one per week but I’ve given my best and feel OK about the job I’ve done. Read more

As I was cleaning my office, I ran across this article written by Matt Sedensky and published by Newsmax on March 5, 2017, titled “Divided Americans Worry Country Losing Identity.” Read more

Am I the only one not surprised that President Trump didn’t hold up Mueller’s indictments in the air, look Putin in those cold blue eyes and tell him in that no uncertain terms, not yesterday, today, or tomorrow, will America put up with cyber-attacks? We consider them an act of war. Read more

This summer is already half over. I can’t believe it. The older I get, the quicker time flies. At least it seems that way to me. I should have enough time to do everything I want to do. I’m retired, for crying out loud. Yet, I still don’t get everything accomplished that I want to get done. Read more

The major parties have changed since the 70s, but the Republican Party has undergone a complete makeover. They were once the party of Lincoln, I liked them, then they became the party of Reagan, I disagreed with them, but now they are the party of Trump. I need say no more. I call them Trumplicans.

Life didn’t, or I should say doesn’t, come with an owner's manual, spell check or “Hey your grammar is so bad" check, and I need all the help I can get. Telling a story has always been easy for me, putting it on pen and paper, and where humans can read and understand it, is quite another story. Read more
