Send Marines to Rescue Americans!

I’m perceived as a hawk although I’m really a cross between a hawk and a dove! I believe in “just wars” as espoused by Augustine of Hippo and extended nine hundred years later by Thomas Aquinas. Few people know that the first example of a just war was Abraham who led his army of 318 […]

What Does a President Have to do to Get Impeached?

The U.S. Constitution provides for the removal of a sitting president through impeachment because our founders knew that all men have a propensity for evil. The first president to be impeached was Democrat Andrew Johnson who became president upon the death of Abraham Lincoln. Johnson had removed his Secretary of War from his cabinet thereby […]

Stay out of Syria: All Factions are Thugs, Thieves, Tyrants, or Terrorists.

Each Wednesday I publish an earlier column that I hope will be instructive, informative, inspirational, and at times, infuriating. The following timely column was first published in June of this year: Syria is a maniacal, murderous, malodorous mess that should alarm the U.S. but not activate us. It calls for our attention but not action. […]

Shut Down Government if Necessary!

Each Wednesday I publish one of my earlier columns that I hope will be informative, instructive, inspirational, and sometimes infuriating. The following was first published in 2010: Republicans are giddy with their recent success at the polls and have the opportunity to effect the greatest change in a hundred years. But don’t count on it. […]

U.S. Government Will Punish Any Criticism of Islam!

It seems the U.S. Government agrees with Turkey (that heads the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a body of 57 nations) that has demanded a resolution prohibiting any criticism of Islam. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan belched that the “West hasn’t recognized Islamophobia as a crime against humanity.” First of all there is no such word as […]

Christians Who Voted for Obama Must Repent!

Every Wednesday I publish an earlier column that I hope will be informational, instructive, inspirational, and at times infuriating. The following column was first published in 2012. I have never done this before, but this column is written with an “I told you so” attitude. All honest, informed people will now admit that Obama’s becoming […]

Am I an Extremist?

Each Wednesday I publish one of my old columns that I hope will be instructive, informative, inspiring and maybe infuriating. The following column was first published in 2010. According to the moguls of the media (the News Twisters), I would appear to be an extremist although I always thought I was mainline. (As mainline as an […]

I Betrayed my Principles and Voted for Expanded Government Power!

Each Wednesday I publish an old column of mine that I hope will be interesting, informative, and maybe inspiring. The following column was published in 2010. As a member of the Indiana House of Representatives, I never skipped a vote or voted “present” (as did a leading politician of today) rather than go on record […]

It is Dangerous to be Right When the Government is Wrong!

Few statements by Bible hater Voltaire are worth repeating but this one is worthwhile: “It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong!” People have lost their jobs, been fined, and placed in prison because they dared to tell the truth about their government. There is a big difference in your country and […]

Government Assistance to Flood Victims Not Constitutional!

The recent storm damage in the northeast is enough to make a stone cry with all the destroyed houses, damaged homes and businesses, the cold, hunger, and general suffering. Many private individuals are showing compassion toward fellow sufferers by providing clothes, blankets, water, food, and other necessities. Such kindness shows that decency is still obvious […]
