Marquette, MI - December 16, 2014 – Freedom To Celebrate
As a person who professes personal freedom AND personal responsibility, I Say Merry Christmas to Everyone. It is a heartfelt wish that I wish you some of the joy I feel on Christmas Day (and in the Advent Season Approaching the Day)
I do not get offended when someone wishes me a Happy Chanukka or if they say Happy Holidays. Remember, they are wishing you well! Why would you be upset about that? If someone says Happy Holidays …read more
Marquette, MI – November 26, 2014 – When gathered with family, copy the first thanksgiving – thank God for Safe Arrival
The FIRST Thanksgiving day in New England was not the 1621 event we remember this week. It was common practice by voyagers to spend a day in thanksgiving for safe arrival after a journey – and in 1607, settlers in Jamestown did just that.
Days of thanksgiving had been celebrated around events like harvests & homecomings long before those celebrated by European settlers – but they all have one thing in common. They are days set …read more
Marquette, MI – November 24, 2014 – Keep the Day Appropriately
At the risk of offending those who will be open for business on Thanksgiving Day… I urge each of you to NOT shop on the holiday itself. It’s bad enough that stores used to open at 4am, then at midnight… now some are not closing at all for the holiday. It is a holiday after all… a day set aside to give thanks for the good things in our life.
Marquette, MI – November 6, 2014 – Union Members Should Be Angry At Wasted Union Dues
Teacher’s Unions reportedly spent up to $80 million trying to oust republicans in this year’s mid-term elections. If I was a member of one of those unions, I would question the dues I pay and the wisdom of the leaders of my union. Of course, many union members simply rely on the union, and don’t think for themselves… I am not speaking to them! Those that do think for themselves should be upset over the money wasted on political campaigns …read more
Marquette, Mi - November 4, 2014 – Take a Walk, Watch a Movie – Wait Until the Late News for Election Results
This may sound funny coming from me, but once you vote today (assuming you’re only voting once) keep the news off until the polls are closed tonight. The entire day will be spent with talking heads discussing voter turnout and what it means… and trying to hide the fact that we don’t know anything until the results are in. I am as interested as anyone in the results, but if you don’t gain any …read more
Marquette, MI - November 3, 2014 – Last Chance to Consider Your Vote
I have often said “you should vote for the candidate whose values are closest to your own”. I’m beginning to think that statement may be incorrect.
With so many people blindly following party lines… so many people willing to lie to win and willing to spread lies … With so many people just too lazy to think before they vote… I’m afraid that people will vote for the candidate most like them… and we will …read more
