THE COMMIES

I just hope everyone understands where we are headed.  The communists said 50 years ago, “We will take your country, without ever firing a shot.”  They are doing it. The four steps to convert a Democratic Republic into a Socialist state.  FOUR STEPS. Not necessarily easy steps, but only 4 steps. Early on a slow process but then […]

Regrets

I guess if you live your life with no regrets you have lived a pretty good life.  I didn’t.  There are at least 3 things I regret.  I had a chance to run over John Russell one morning before daylight when he was walking and crossed US69 in front of me and I had to hit the […]

Why Clowns Cry

Seeing a former colleague and friend Jeff Griffith running for Sheriff of Pott. County made me remember when another friend talked me into running for Mayor of Wagoner.  Yes, I know, what? Why?

History

I love history, History Major in College, but I read all of the history books and not try to spin it into a narrative that my group will like.  Remember Forrest Gump, “Stupid is as Stupid does” y career path as a life coach is about over (didn’t get a lot of customers) so I thought I would […]
