Editorial #96 Your rights

We live in the greatest country in the world because it has the fairest from of government. It is not perfect, but it is far better than any alternative.
Our constitution outlines our rights as citizens: They are simply: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The Bill of Rights elaborates these rights in 27 amendments that limits the government but not the rights of the citizens.

Government’s obligation is to provide: security,


Editorial #94, Infrastructure, aired August 15, 2019

Editorial #94 Infrastructure

Our government provides only three basic functions: Infrastructure, Security and making laws that are fair, truthful, sustainable with integrity (no false or self-serving agendas).

All these functions have a price tag and we try to elect politicians with integrity who are supposed to determine the best way to use tax dollars to provide these basic functions. Tax dollars should not use them to buy votes. Our system of campaigns is supposed to allow us to determine if the candidate has integrity.


Editorial #95 Red Flag Law aired August 15, 2019

Editorial #95 Red Flag Law

The recent mass shooting tragedies delivered the same expected responses from anti-gun activist and liberal politicians. They always follows the same game plan used by socialistic extremists: Never let a good disaster go to waste.

The trial balloon being floated now is the “The Red Flag Law”. It encourages citizens to report suspicious activity of individuals who look like they are capable of harming someone.
This sounds like the WWII stories where German citizens reported friends and relatives to authorities who were Jewish or critical of the Nazi party.

Editorial #93 Mass Shootings

Everyone, including this commentator, is trying to say something profound about the mass shootings this week. The sad part is there is nothing profound to say. There is no law or magic solution that will make this stop. There is only hope that we each do our part by setting examples that the golden rule works.

Violence and war, are the extremes of love and peace. These extremes must exist just like cold must exist to know what is hot.

Editorial #91 Chinese Civil Unrest

I am not a big fan of saying we must learn history so we don’t repeat it. History is about all the things that went wrong or were very unusual and not about things that went right. History is very interesting but not that useful. After all, they are simply stories. Only the things that worked are useful to know. All the things found to work are in economics,


Editorial #90 Suicide of Police and Military aired August 6, 2019

Editorial #90 Suicide of police and military

The rate of suicides among our law enforcement officers has been increasing over the last decade with 159 reported nationally in 2018. The number is looking to be over 170 in 2019. It is more than the number killed in the line of duty. The rate of suicides among military veterans is also ahead of suicides for similar aged individuals. Regardless, any suicide is a tragedy.


Editorial #89 Not Knowing What’s Right aired August 1, 2019

Editorial #89 Not knowing what’s right

There is a very disturbing trend occurring in this country. It is the re-characterizing of anything that does not comply with a liberal agenda. If something happens that is contrary it is spun, forcing it to fit their narrative. This is “fake news” which is simply the re-characterization of the word “propaganda”.

How can issues like abortion, illegal immigration, no voter ID, gender identity, social justice or gun control have any traction if it violates natural law,


Editorial #82 Value of Free Education aired July 30, 2019

Editorial #82 Value of free education

With all the talking points from the score of democrat presidential candidates, the common denominator seems to be the use of the word FREE.

Free health care, free education, free internet, free housing, free food, free cell phones and the list goes on. Apparently they believe these necessities of life should be a right for everyone, including non-citizens and the government will give them to you if you vote for them.


Editorial #88 Republic vs Democracy aired July 25, 2019

Editorial #88 Republic vs Democracy

Too many politicians and citizens do not know the difference between our constitutional republic and a democracy. The difference is individual freedoms are protected from the mob rule of a democracy. Mob rule is a very dangerous thing. Individuals in a mob will do terrible things that most honest, God fearing citizen would never dream of doing. Because of this difference, the United States is not a democracy,


Editorial #87 Space Program Results aired July 23, 2019

Editorial #87 Space Program results

It hard to believe this week marks 50 years since Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon. The Wright Brothers made their first flight only 65 years earlier when most people were still using horses as their main means of transportation. Comparing these events is useful in pointing out the speed at which technology is racing in our lives.

We all work to keep our lives as simple and manageable as possible but we are,
