Editorial #42 Civics in School February 14,2019

If we truly live in the freest nation in the world but cannot determine or guide what our public education system is teaching our children, are we really free?

It is amazing how apathetic we have become with the influences of social media and news sources that constantly re-characterizes everything to advance an agenda that seems to violate our core values of truth, fairness,

Editorial #41 Nonpartisan Ballot LB 72+211 Feb 12, 2019

Editorial #41 Nonpartisan Ballots February 12, 2019

The function of our government is to do only three things: Provide security, Provide infrastructure and make laws that protects our personal rights in our Constitutional Democratic Republic. As simple as these three items appear to be, there is a constant attempt by our elected politicians (who are not our leaders, by the way) to constantly try to give more of our tax dollars away by voting for things that are outside of their constitutional job description of providing security,

Editorial # 40 The Mail in Ballot: February 5, 2019

The process of voting has been a foundation of our republic and a privilege in our democracy for as long as our great country has existed. It is rooted in fairness and designed to protect us from the corruption that has always tried to infect any sort of organized society.
The seriousness and importance of this issues cannot be underestimated and is also the weakest point in the machinery of managing a government with its founding principles and values to be: “of the people,

Editorial #39 Property Taxes for January 31, 2019

Editorial #39 Property Tax aired January 31, 2019

There will be over 1000 bills introduced in our legislature this term with only a modest handful trying to address the most important and serious issue we have in Nebraska, Property Tax.  The seriousness cannot be underestimated and if not addressed immediately, nothing else will really matter as we will have a state with only poor people wanting to live off the government.

Practically every candidate in the past election cycle said they were going to try to fix property taxes but few are really taking it on and none have any new ideas as to what to do.

Editorial #26 National Convention of States January 29, 2019

National Convention of States

There is a quiet movement happening in country known as a National Convention of States with under tones similar to the Brexit vote in Great Britain.  Supporters like to call it a National Convention of States, which sounds less threatening, but the differentiation is a difference without a distinction.  The concept, on the surface, has merits with honest objectives by many supporters but there is another side to this idea that has concerning parallels to a “Trojan Horse”

Editorial #37 Legislative Season January 22, 2019

Editorial #37 Legislative Season January 22, 2019
Every year in January a new season opens in Nebraska. It is a season like any other season, be it hunting, fishing, football or baseball but this season is known as the legislative session. It is a season where almost everything is fair game and where there are 49 elected hunters in Lincoln who are hunting to find something to fix, whether it needs fixing or not.

Editorial #27 Trickle Down Economics January 17, 2019

Trickle Down Economics

With the Federal Tax Bill and the National Debt now major news topics, a phrase that has been bantered around for about 40 years called “Trickle Down Economics” is commonly being mentioned.  It is one of the most misunderstood “tag lines” used to describe modern day economics.  The application of this misunderstanding continues to infect the thinking of the liberal agenda.  It is most often used to impugn economic policies that are thought to be unfair,

Editorial # 36 Government Agencies Aired January 15, 2019
During this time of a government shutdown and the repercussions of such an events, it is surprising that things function as well as they do without having the government actually in business.
The tag line describing that part of the government that is actually not in operation as “non-essential” is almost funny. In all my years of working in private businesses, I have never had the owner describe any part of their operation as “Non-essential”.

Editorial #23 National Public Service January 10, 2019

As we continue to see examples of apathy, indifference and blatant disrespect for our national traditions like the flag, our anthem, the military and the police we are seeing the symptoms of the infection that impacts the fabric of the entire country.  The problem is a  our citizens are not personally invested enough in the country.  They simply misunderstand what it means to live in the land of the free and the responsibility we all have in supporting the systems that allows us to have liberty and the freedom to exercise it responsibly.

Editorial #35 Government Shut Down January 8, 2019

Editorial #35 Government Shut Down aired January 10, 2019

It has always amazed me that the function of our government has little resemblance to anything we do in our private lives.
The bickering over issues that were universally accepted a few year back now become points of contention and bargaining chips in the functioning and operation of the largest business in the country…..our federal government.
The current argument over funding a relatively insignificant expenditure for border security makes about as much sense as not buying locks for your house because you don’t like the local locksmith.
