A Reflection on the Election of 2012

September 5th, 2012 · No Comments

Our wonderful country is divided as not experienced since the War Between the States. So which side is correct? And what should your ballot choice be in the critical election of 2012? Do we want our lives controlled by politicians who want the government to make decisions that are the right and responsibility of the […]

Financial Crisis Makes Presidential Choice More Important

October 9th, 2008 · No Comments

Is if possible to efficiently type on one’s laptop while hiding under the bed to escape the meltdown of our economy?  And won’t the sinus infection from which I currently suffer be worsened by the dust that my political activities have allowed to amass under the same said bed? The current economic crisis isn’t really […]

Vice Presidential Choice – An Important Indicator of Judgement

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

A long anticipated event for political junkies was the first Vice Presidential debate of this historical campaign season.  As the starting time drew near, our household gathered around the television anxiously awaiting the moment with as much enthusiasm as a sports fan excited over the opening kick-off of the Super Bowl. It actually was the Super Bowl, the final winner being an individual who receives much more […]

Mr. Webster Wouldn’t Like the New Definition of Elitist

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Mr. Webster must certainly be making a valiant attempt to escape from the grave to update his dictionary to meet new 21st century definitions.  The current wordspeak, seemingly straight out of George Orwell’s “1984”, has taken many words and twisted them into an intent that was never conceived by previous generations. The most battered of all those terms appears to be the […]

The Right to Keep & Bear Arms

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Thanksgiving is a terrible time to spend at our Neshoba County, Mississippi farm. The culprit that denies an escape from our hectic life is the beginning of deer season. The 78 acres that is an integral part of my heart and soul have not been farmed since my precious grandfather’s 1962 death. And the house […]

Lesson’s Learned from the Election of 2006

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Newspaper reports concerning the root cause of the election of Virginia’s new Senator appear to be a simplistic explanation of what was a much more complex choice. I am the moderate voter who delivered the Senate into the hands of a different party. My vote was in no way a validation of one particular issue. […]

Why One Changes Their Party Affiliation

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Most of the time when things change in one’s life the reason is because that person have moved on. Life experiences continually amass to form a more solid base for beliefs.  The evolution of our country’s major political parties has reversed that normal process. During the early part of my adult life I considered myself to be a member of […]

And That, Virginia, is Why Tim Kaine is Governor

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Drawing simplistic political conclusions from election results appears to be an ingrained habit of the Virginian Pilot editorial staff. A scant 12 hours after the polls closed the newspaper proclaimed the Kaine gubernatorial win to be a validation of the recent Commonwealth tax increase. That deduction is an insulting underestimate of the Virginia voter’s intelligence […]

Let’s Elect a Woman President

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Its time for a woman President. After all, the current class of political men don’t seem capable of handling the task. The entire governing scene in Washington has digressed into a partisan propaganda battle. Whatever has happened to the constitutional responsibilities of defending the founding fathers’ mandates and standing up for the rights of constituents? […]
