Trump Told Forgotten Folks They Mattered

When people are generally passionate about things, they sometimes exceed the bounds of reason.

Trump Win Predictable, but not to Pollsters

When people tell me that Donald Trump's election as the nation's 45th president shocked them, I reply that they must not be paying attention to what goes on around them. The nation is a mess---the economy is in the doldrums, most of the few available jobs are part-time and low-paying, the infrastructure is crumbling, the massive $20 trillion national debt is getting bigger, the $531 billion trade deficit is poised to go higher---and these are merely the most glaring problems that have festered under President Obama.

What Did Voters Really See?

So, the most frequent refrain since Election Day is that "no one saw this coming." Not the pollsters, not the media, not the Democrats' machine.

In Victory, A Side of Trump I Didn’t Expect

The campaign is done. The votes are counted. And America is waking up from one of the strangest, angriest and most divisive presidential campaigns in recent memory.

For Love of Country

My father served in the Second World War. He was on the ground in northern Africa and Italy. He lived during a time when the threat of war engulfed every major nation and when the call to serve weighed heavily on the mind of every American. Millions were drafted into our armed forces, joining men and women who had volunteered knowing that they could make the difference between freedom and tyranny for generations of Americans to come. My father and the people around him served with one thing in mind – one thing that outweighed the fear they felt, the way ...

The Primal Scream for Trump and What It Means

I didn't think it would happen. I was wrong. And if it's true what they say, that misery loves company, well, I have plenty of it.

On Veterans Day we hear stories never before told

Many years ago there was a television show named Queen for a Day. It was on NBC so it was a channel we could watch in Great Bend. It featured one mother who would win a prize that was the equivalent of living like royalty. Mothers with names like Shirley, Gladys or Rita would be reduced to tears at the announcement they would receive something absurdly valuable in those days to a home maker, like a new clothes washer. The show was a ratings smash.

America Needs a Smart Infrastructure Program

With less than a week before the presidential election, attention in the nation's capital is turning slowly to what might be accomplished during the "lame duck" - that period when legislative business is conducted after the voting has done but before the new Congress is sworn in.

Don’t Encase Your Children in Bubble Wrap

I doubt that I would see eye-to-eye on any political topic with Leslie Kendall Dye, but we are muy simpatico when it comes to child-raising philosophy. Dye writes in the Washington Post that she's tired of busybodies warning that her daughter is about to be maimed.

Christmas Creep

A sign on the door at Starbucks advised that hours on Christmas Day will be 4:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Good to know-but 60 days in advance? Inside the Paso Robles, Calif. store coffee was being served in festive green cups, although outside it was 82 degrees on a sunny fall afternoon.

Americans Want a Different Foreign Policy

I have said throughout this presidential campaign that it doesn't matter much which candidate wins. Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are authoritarians and neither can be expected to roll back the leviathan state that destroys our civil liberties at home while destroying our economy and security with endless wars overseas.
