Freedom Rings

There is a Native American allegory in which a man tells his grandson that there are two wolves inside each of us battling for our souls. One is bad; the other is good. The bad wolf embodies vices such as self-pity, resentment, anger, pride, greed, envy and lies. The good wolf embodies virtues such as love, patience, humility, hope, truth and ...Read more

Giving Thanks

The past few years have been extraordinarily odd. We have been isolated, scared and unable to connect with people as we are used to. This is slowly changing, and I am grateful that we are beginning to make more human connections. This Thanksgiving, I am particularly thankful for my family, close friends and those who share my passion to make our...Read more

Here Comes Inflation Acceleration

I've been saying that inflation is on its way since April of this year. Well, it's here, and it's going to get worse. On Nov. 10, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released the consumer price index summary, revealing what most American's already know. Prices are skyrocketing.

According to the BLS report, prices increased 0.9% last month ...Read more

Republicans, We Must Up Our Game!

Republican Glenn Youngkin's victory last week over former Virginia Democratic Gov.Terry McAuliffe has led most observers to predict that Republicans are sure to make big gains in next year's midterms. While I agree that the election gives Republicans cause for enthusiasm, I have learned during more than four decades in politics that overreach ...Read more

Tuesday's Takeaways

This Tuesday night was a big win for Republicans in Virginia. Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin defeated Democratic nominee and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe. The topic of education grabbed the spotlight in their race. McAuliffe was asked during a debate about parents objecting to critical race theory being taught in schools. "I'm not...Read more

Our National Institute of Health Should Be Better

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, unclear and misreported stories about where the virus came from have proliferated. Did it come from the wet market in Wuhan? From the Wuhan Lab? Was it a bio attack?

Early last year, President Donald Trump said that it might have originated from a laboratory in Wuhan. The media mocked him, and for ...Read more

Back to the Basics

Last week, the National Assessment of Education Progress issued its latest long-term trend assessment report. The results are clear: We are failing to teach our children the basics of math and reading. These results are based on tests taken before the pandemic. Just imagine how much worse the next round of tests will be due to all the ...Read more

Narrative Not News

While many on the left are still using the mantra "follow the science," it appears to be a mantra that has no meaning. President Joe Biden made a speech in Illinois last week in a push to get employers to require COVID-19 vaccinations of their employees. Yet during the speech, he spread misinformation when he claimed that vaccinated people (he ...Read more

Let's Argue for Argument's Sake, Good Naturedly and With Humility

When did we decide that arguing was intolerable? Possibly it was when we determined that arguments were not about whether we were right or wrong but whether we were good or bad. We had to be right (we are good), and the others to be wrong (they are bad). What had once been intellectual arguments buttressed on each side by facts and figures ...Read more

Political Math Is the New Free!

Last Saturday, President Joe Biden tweeted the following about his $3.5 trillion proposal: "My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars. Instead of wasting money on tax breaks, loopholes and tax evasion for big corporations and the wealthy, we can make a once-in-a-generation investment in working America. And it adds zero dollars to the ...Read more

Lack of U.S. Leadership Exacerbates Southern Border Crisis

In March, as the number of encounters between illegal immigrants and U.S. Border Patrol agents was increasing on our southern border, President Joe Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to take charge of the problem. "I can think of nobody who's better qualified to do this," Biden said of Harris. "When she speaks, she speaks for me."

The Era of Absurdity

We are officially in the era of absurdity. President Joe Biden has asked those who are unvaccinated to wear masks to protect the vaccinated. While Democrats are pushing for a moratorium on evictions and rent, businesses cannot fill jobs. Inflation is rapidly rising, the Federal Reserve is printing gobs of money, and the government is running a...Read more

Life's Great Adventure

This week, I am staying at a ranch in Montana. The state is called Big Sky Country for a reason. The sky is enormous, the mountains high, the trees plentiful and the sun bright. The nights are dark and filled with sounds that are different from the sirens and street racing that I hear in Atlanta, where I live. The cell service is nonexistent, ...Read more
