Good Sense and Solid Reasoning

Conservative thoughts from an average middle class American


December 2016

Learning from History

Written in 1942 by Emmit Fox, reprinted in his book Make Your Life Worthwhile first published in 1946.

“Christmas has come around once more, and we find the nation passing through a time of great testing. Today the American people are called upon to prove their faith in God, and in those American principles which are written in our Constitution.

The response has been magnificent. Every section of the community has demonstrated its unshakable resolve to make every effort toward the great Victory that we know will be ours.

People do not speak of making sacrifices today, for they feel that to forego, temporarily, some of our liberties and some of our comforts, is a privilege and a high honor.

Above all, we who have the Jesus Christ teaching rejoice in the knowledge that we can help those we love with prayers; realizing that they who dwell in the secret place, abide in the shadow of the Almighty and around their loved ones.

Let us in the coming year keep the 91st Psalm very close to our hearts.”

Obviously, Mr. Fox was referring to WWII when talking about the test and the victory.

As we look around the world today, with Islam waging war all over the world. And the traitorous act by Obama in the UN. The world again is being tested. However, our victory is not so assured as so many around the world seem hell bent on destroying Israel and the US. Unfortunately, one of the political parties here in the US seems to agree with these anti-Israel, anti-US sentiments. The Democrats have purposely ignored the Constitution and the will of the people through out Obamas time in office.

Feeling privileged to forego comforts to win that victory seems almost a joke in today’s “give me more and I want it now” culture.  The left has been very successful in creating this entitlement culture.

Let’s hope that the great spiritual awakening happens very soon.

Merry Christmas!

Wishing all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

With all that has happened in 2016 the entire world will do well to remember why we celebrate Christmas and give thanks that we are still here.

Average Middle Class American Who is Fed Up with the Leftist Elite.

Deja Vu

I had actually started this blog approximately five years ago. My goal was to inject logical thinking into the public debates of the day.  But life happened and I was not able to spend the time and effort needed to write effectively.  My job at the time kept me very busy.   I have since retired, after thirty five years, took my life’s savings and opened a business.

I am a father, grandfather, business owner, employer and conservative that has had it with the leftists elites and their lecturing, name calling, whining, riots etc.

Somewhere along the last forty or fifty years our country has lost its ability to think logically. Or in some cases think at all.  This speaks to the success of the left and the politically correct movement.

I hope to inspire some thought and civil discussion (I know, if discussion is with a leftist – civility will be hard to find) on cultural, political and life topics from the perspective of an average every day American.

I have a degree in electronics and a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration. I worked for thirty five years with a large company.  Twenty years as a rank and file union member and fifteen years as management.  After seeing both sides of the political isle I can only say that one belief system works and one does not.  One system of belief leads to anger jealousy and hatred. The other leads to happiness, prosperity and fulfillment.  One leads to dependency on government the other leads to freedom.

Starting this blog again is a bit of deja vu all over again. (thanks Yogi)  But I believe the good Lord wanted me to have the experience of owning my own business to add the mix.
