Retiring Political Commentary

You may consider this my retirement from political commentary. No one has shamed me into this. No one has made me feel unequal to the task. I definitely have political opinions and I think they’re good ones, but I will no longer be blogging about them. Let me explain myself, and then I’ll bid you good night. I’ve never, ever, ever…

Trump Day is Nigh

Inauguration day, January 20, will be here in a couple of days.  There’s a few thoughts I have going through my head that I want to share with you here as a matter of public record.  I’ve not been shy about my dislike of Donald Trump as President.  I’m not here to rehash everything that I’ve already said.  A Trump…

Once again, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day has come around. Today, my mind has looked back on my experiences growing up.

Christians and Guns

I own a gun. I plan to own maybe one or two more in the future. I enjoy target practice and shooting skeet. I believe the Second Amendment of the United States’ Constitution provides a legal pathway for me to own firearms. I believe anyone who owns a gun must seriously consider the ramifications of taking someone else’s life. Not only…

Socially Incorrect

I’ve been wanting to write this particular piece for a long time, but it simply hasn’t felt like the right timing.  Today feels right, so here goes.  I should start this with a disclaimer.  If you finish reading this and feel like I’m being a bit mean-spirited, please understand, that is not my intent.  Also, allow me to say that what I’m about…
