Deck the halls - and your spirits may rise

Body
This is one year when the naysayers who nag about putting up Christmas decorations early are coming up on the short end of the candy cane. This is one election, so to speak, when not only have the polls been correct, but the ballots have already been counted.

A World of Chaos

Body
Many believe the country is in chaos. Anarchy is taking place in front of the viewer’s eyes and nothing is being done to curtail it. Television is full of rioters and various items of patriotism are burned in the streets, in front of cameras and the dastardly deeds are in defiance of America as if to say America doesn’t matter.

Thankful for the Security

Body
We are in the season of Thanksgiving and I like to take this time every year to reflect on all the things in my life for which I am so very thankful. During this year of 2020 marked by so much sickness, stress, natural disasters, division and too many other troubles to name, I think we should all take a moment to look around us and find those things that truly make us thankful. I am always looking for little moments that make me stop and say thank you.

Presidential voter fraud in Louisiana?

Body
With the presidential election going right down to the wire, widespread voter fraud is being alleged by both the Republicans and the Democrats. We may see final election results delayed for a week or more. Two Thousand Bush v Gore redux?

A New Beginning

Body
By the time you read this, the election should be over and hopefully the outcome is apparent. We should at least know how the congressional seats are aligned and it is trusted that thepresidential outcome will quickly be determined. My wife and I voted early and as the election returns came in, we planned to be sitting around a fire pit on Lake Catherine near Hot Springs, Ark. A peaceful end to a very tumultuous 10 months.

Never Give Up

Body
My oldest son called me yesterday to chat. He is 19 and we share a lot of things with each other. He talks to me about things that many sons would not share with a parent. He feels that he can talk to me about anything on his heart and mind and for that I feel very fortunate. On this day he said, “mom, I’m struggling.”

What would you ask the presidential candidates?

Body
If you could sit down with each of the two presidential candidates, President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, what would you ask them? What insights would you be looking for? What knowledge would you expect them to have? And just how much difference do you think they could really make?

The Demon American Press

Body
America has a disease that is ravaging a great nation. No, it is not COVID-19, though that is so terrible; the disease is hatred and misunderstanding and lack of empathy for our fellow man.
