JFK Assassinated!

Today marks 52 years since the day John Fitzgerald Kennedy was shot and killed. I do not like to use the term 52nd  Anniversary. In the truest context it is an anniversary but for most of us, anniversary is a day of celebration such as a wedding anniversary or a birthday anniversary. The assassination of John F …

Homeless Veterans, Our Nation’s Shame

How is it possible that the word homeless can be used to describe a Veteran’s state of existence. How can we, as a nation, allow our veterans to come home and then abandon them. Don’t they deserve a little extra attention. After all, these are the men and women who not so long ago, or …

The Weakening of America

The American Society is growing weak and ineffectual. It is not because we are not working out. It is not because the children play video games more than active sports. It is not even because we feed our children food laden with trans fats. We are becoming a weak nation because the youth, our future, …

Control The Guns

Why is it that anytime an incident occurs in the country that involves firearms someone or many someones will take advantage of the event to politicize the time-worn topic of gun control. It does not matter if it is a mass shooting or a tragic accident involving a child. Personally I think that most of …

Stupid Free Zones

Once again the country is reeling from the horror of yet another school shooting. This time on a university in Oregon where ten were killed and seven more wounded in a killing spree by Chris Harper-Mercer at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.

The Next Police Chief

Several weeks have now passed since the firing of Jeffrey Blackwell from his position of Police Chief of the Cincinnati Police Department. The dust seems to have settled and those who were vocal over the validity of the firing have calmed their rhetoric. Certain Council members have accepted the fact that they were not included …

Black Lives Matter?

As I am sure everyone knows, there is a movement in the United States known as “Black Lives Matter”. This movement came to life after the death of Travon Martin, who was a 17-year-old African-American who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer. Zimmerman was lawfully acquitted in court by a jury …

Heroes Don’t Hide

I probably should know better than to write this article. I should know better because I am angry and tend to not choose the best words to describe my feelings under such circumstances. But I am angry and I am sad. I need to do this because this is how I vent. If you are …
