I Thought I’d Seen It All

I Thought I’d Seen It All
Some folks are naturally accident-prone. I am. My boyhood best friend and mentor Jaybird said that I should write a collection of stories about my accidents. If I do, the first story will be about the time we discovered the honey hole.

In angling parlance, a honey hole is a place nobody else knows about, and we found one where a creek had overflowed its banks, flooding a cow pasture. Big bass were thrashing minnows in the shallows.

No creatures are deadlier at ambushing than these bucket-mouthed behemoths. Lurking in shadows, they attack anything that swims close by, and the pasture’s fence posts provided ideal cover.

The Mirror On The White House Wall Shows The Democrats For What They Really Are

The Mirror On The White House Wall Shows The Democrats For What They Really Are
The mirror on the White House Wall was supposed to show President Donald Trump as “immoral” for wanting to protect his country’s southern border with a wall.  Instead the mirror is showing how immoral Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the high-handed, hate-ridden Democrats are.

The mainstream and social media have yet to ask how wanting to protect the citizenry from immigrants crossing the border willy-nilly is in any way “immoral”.  They are also doing whatever they can to hide what is being reflected in the mirror.

My Exciting Trip to the Liquor Store in Fascist Canada

My Exciting Trip to the Liquor Store in Fascist Canada
As I wrote in an earlier article, new laws concerning drinking and driving came into effect in Canada on Dec. 18. As well as increased penalties, cops no longer have to have a “reasonable suspicion” that a driver has been drinking before demanding that driver provide suitable breath samples. As well, a police officer can demand someone provide breath samples if that person has driven anytime within the previous two hours. If the demand is made to a person drinking at home or in a bar and that person blows over the legal limit, he or she can be charged. It is up to them to prove that they were not impaired when they last drove.

The Road to Skedaddle

Tony Mangan and Bella
Tony Mangan and Bella

I bought me a saddle on which to skedaddle,
But I hadn’t a horse to put under.

I could hear the herd comin’ and see the herd goin’
And their hooves were a beatin’ like thunder.

And, that sound seemed to say “Cowboy, step away,
‘Cause if you stand in this road, you’ll go under.”

So, with nowhere to go and an oncomin’ snow,
I holed up with my dreams and my saddle.

You know, the one that I bought while having the thought
‘Bout gettin’ on up an skedaddle.

Well, spring finally came and we suffered some rain
And everything greened up real fine.

TO WIN IN 2020 TRUMP MUST BUILD THE WALL

TO WIN IN 2020 TRUMP MUST BUILD THE WALLIn his address to the nation, President Trump once again offered an olive branch to the Democrats. In exchange for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall, he gave his support for a three-year extension of protection for the 700,000 immigrants who arrived in the country as children. This group was protected from deportation by former President Obama in his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

His previous offers to negotiate and compromise have been rejected by Democrats, who are being held captive by their far-left wing, which supports open borders. The President may soon come to the realization that the only way to end the government shutdown is to give up on a deal with the Democrats and declare a national emergency and start building the wall on his own.

Taxpayers Federation Applauds OSAP and Tuition Changes

TORONTO, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is applauding today’s announcement that the Ontario government is restoring the Ontario Student Assistance Program to 2016-17 levels, reducing tuition by 10 per cent and requiring the availability of online opt-outs for student ancillary fees.

“Reducing tuition and providing opt-outs for fees will help students while reforming OSAP will save taxpayers millions,” said CTF Ontario Director Christine Van Geyn. “Last year’s OSAP changes were supposed to save taxpayer money, but, as the auditor general warned, the cost soared to more than $2 billion per year. By returning OSAP to 2016-17 levels, we hope to see a savings of about 50 per cent for this program.”

Videos May Stop Abortion Funding

New Orleans, LA – Late last night the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a preliminary injunction so now the state of Texas can block Medicaid funding to abortion providers because of the undercover videos that demonstrated a severe lack of accepted medical and ethical standards. The court also returned the case to the district court for further consideration. This ruling is fitting on the eve of the March for Life in Washington, D.C. today.

Dismemberment Case Before High Court

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Liberty Counsel has filed an amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the decision by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the Alabama law that prohibits dismemberment abortions of live unborn babies.  This case presents a direct challenge to the 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion opinion.

In Marshall v. West Alabama Women’s Center, Liberty Counsel represents the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists and American College of Pediatricians, which are urging the Supreme Court to accept review of the Eleventh Circuit decision and to uphold the law that protects unborn babies, who can feel pain as early as eight weeks gestation, from cruel and unusual punishment.

Does God Speak to You?

When people ask me this question, I answer it with another, “Do mean God doesn’t speak to you?”

You can officially mark me down as a crazy person or whatever you like, I don’t care.  But I initially turned from the world to face God because I heard a voice answer my silent plea, the plea of a lost and lonely sinner about to give up on life, “I’ve got to try something.”

What I heard was a voice as real as any I’ve ever heard say right in my ear, “Why don’t you try God.”

Economists Mislead on Carbon Tax

We live in strange times indeed when an environmental reporter for the New York Times writes that we should stop pushing for a carbon tax, just a few weeks before dozens of distinguished economists sign a letter to the Wall Street Journal calling for a carbon tax. Yet despite the prestige behind the impressive list of signers, the economists mislead the American public on several key points.

The United Nations is trying to grab control of worldwide immigration policies

While President Donald Trump seeks funding for a border wall, the United Nations is seeking control of migration policies worldwide, with a campaign configured to undermine America’s sovereignty and control over its own borders. And, yes, if the U.N. has its way, America will help pay for it.

As with many of the U.N.‘s turf grabs, this campaign to co-opt national migration policy has been years in the making. Incremental in its origins, and swaddled in U.N. jargon and procedure, it has largely escaped the U.S. headlines. But it’s now reached the stage of becoming dangerous.

Hospitals Guard Prices Like the CIA Guards Secrets

Way back in 2017, before we were on the Road to Nuremberg With Donald Trump, the Washington Post was outraged that hospitals were trying to make a profit. Like most stories involving reporters, economics and healthcare it was both wildly inaccurate and agenda–driven.

The story’s one useful service was it introduced the public to the slightly ominous term “Chargemaster.” At first glance, the term “Chargemaster” might be mistaken for the cause of the so–called epidemic of “mass incarceration.” A fiendish device district attorneys use to jail minorities captured during the government’s regular sweeps in low–income areas.

When environmentalism becomes corruption—Part 1

All across the United States, private property rights are under assault—assault by state and federal legislators and regulators, environmentalist groups, wealthy liberal foundations, corporations and other special interests, often acting in coordination or collusion with one another. They are seizing or taking control of lands and other valuable property without due process or just compensation, under a host of environmental and other justifications, many of which are fictional at best.

I have personally witnessed attempts to shut down the small mining industry in my state of Colorado. Exploration and development by this industry often results in discoveries of major deposits of minerals that are essential for everything we make, use and do—including medical equipment, cell phones, computers, aircraft, aerospace, automobiles, wind turbines, solar panels, batteries, and modern high-tech weapon and communication systems.
