Shoes, Sports, and Human Rights

Slavery was far above a culture issue.  It was a human right’s issue.  When our young nation deemed a slave as a mere two-thirds of a person and denied a slave the right to vote, that was a human rights issue.  Jefferson and others of the founding fathers tried to sweep the issue under the …

A Memorial Day Memoryo

After over 500+ posts, I find little to post so I dug up one from 2012 about a family member that fought for our country in the Revolutionary War.  It is family only by marriage, yet, I’ll claim him!  I found him on Ancestry . com several years ago. My mother’s brothers all served twenty …

Ronald Reagan and Pat Summitt: Something in Common

Eternity matters.  What matters most is knowing one’s eternal destiny.  I am not discounting ambition, integrity, kindness, personal appearance, hygiene, appropriateness, or being on time.  Those things are the ingredients of a life well-spent on this planet. There is a thief among us, however, that can rob a person of all past accomplishments. The brain …

No Harm?

Generally, I consider a doodle to be rather rambling and without form.  What I write here today is a cross between a doodle and essay. I have no idea what to call it.  Maybe one of my readers can coin a word for me.  Recently The Daily Signal (https://www.dailysignal.com)  produced a column about the thoughts …

Fault, Enough to go Around

“It’s all his fault.”  Really?  All is such a strong word.  It may be that it is largely one person’s fault but is seldom a whole person’s fault.  Now, let’s switch that around. “It’s all his credit.”  He did it all?  I doubt that too.  Most of the time there is plenty of blame and …

Grace to the Humble

I feel as if an enormous black cloud is hanging over America.  There is much more at stake than a Supreme Court Confirmation going on.  This isn’t just about one thing, but several.  Let’s pray as never before that God’s strong arm of Truth will prevail and pray with an open and humble spirit.  I …

Independence Day

Folks, it is Independence Day. That is what my calendar declares it to be.  It has been about six generations since the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence.  What a document it was and remains.  The War for Independence was fought by men who literally did give everything to see that our nation could …

A Flag Day Doodle

Elizabeth “Betsy” Ross did not have a fancy sewing machine.  In fact, she didn’t even have a simple treadle machine because the first American sewing machine was not invented until 1846.  The first flags she handstitched were for the American Navy because they needed flags to identify them.  She stitched together thirteen stripes (seven red, …

America is too Young to Die

Here’s an excerpt from the “End of the Day” report that Gary L. Bauer e mails Monday through Fridays to my in box.  It is something to consider whether you are of either political persuasion.  Ask yourself, “Why?”  I have more to say at the end of the article. A Real Scandal Secretary of Defense …

Is There Not a Cause?

2004 is not all that long ago. I recall the manufactured “scandal” by Dan Rather and CBS over George W. Bush’s military records. That broke in September before his re-election to a second term. These major networks, for some reason are in the pockets of the Democrats. I suppose it is the work of Satan …
