I like public schools for all and I like roads for all, so I believe that I’d like Medicare for All. I’m not alone. A Reuters-Ipsos poll, taken over a year ago, found that most Americans - 70 percent to be exact - support Medicare for All, which is also known as a single payer health care system....
I’ve been watching some of the coverage of the Democrats so called “impeachment inquiry”. My first thought was “what a farce”. My second thought was to issue a silent prayer that the “Convention of States” movement is successful soon. We desperately need enough states signed on so “we the people”...
I take it all back. Todd County Commissioner Randy Neumann is working to do his job and last week the results of his efforts to do so showed. Let me explain. A few weeks ago I wrote that Commissioner Neumann had mismanaged a tax forfeit house in my village and, as a result, a perfectly livable...
 I spent my last Sunday in Mexico helping launch La Fiesta de los Puercos de la Trinitaria, or the Festival of Trinitaria’s Pigs.    In Mexico there are many fiestas. Some are celebrated by the entire nation.  Many are local, like Oaxaca’s Fiesta of the Radishes. The Fiesta of the Pigs is very...
I started to watch the much hyped “Democrat debates” but found my stomach wasn’t as strong as I previously thought. Even though I had respectfully watched the entire Bernie Sanders Townhall on Fox, with no problem, (the man straight up tells you he’s a socialist) I could only watch the rest of them...
The Trump Administration is continuing its demonic reign of terror upon immigrants and brown skinned people at its concentration camps on the southern border and in our country’s interior in American cities. They are doing this through their rogue and law breaking enforcement agencies that are...
In 2007, only twelve years ago, Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty signed off on a visionary plan to put Minnesota on a path to a clean energy future. Pawlenty, working with the Minnesota Senate and House, signed legislation that mandated that all of Minnesota’s electrical utilities produce twenty-...
Yippee! Long Prairie is gonna have its very own Dollar General Store just like 10,000 other small towns across this country. “But grandpa,” my five year old grand child said when I told him the exciting news, “we already have a dollar store and they have everything we need.” I suppose it takes a...
I got up this cold, bleak rainy morning wondering what I wanted to say when we, as a family, spread Sandy’s ashes. As I sat drinking coffee, thinking my thoughts and looking at the dreary day unfolding, I was surprised to realize I was not the least bit depressed, or even down, in fact I was quite...
A Saturday afternoon two weeks ago was a good time to try and make some headway with yard clean-up. While taking a short break, Munk One made an appearance and wanted to chat for a while since we had not talked since late last fall.  I asked him what the topic might be. He said he had been up on...
