The other day Donald Trump called all of the most recent $3 trillion House coronavirus relief bill "dead on arrival" because it includes vote-by-mail. Trump said, "They want to be able to make sure that Republicans can't win an election by putting in all sorts of mail-in ballots.” Why does Donald...
I'm 76 years old, I've lived through the era of Polio, TB sanitariums, smallpox vaccines, measles, mumps, chicken pox, colds, several varieties of flu, food poisoning and brain lobotomies to treat mental conditions. I've had several of these ailments, some several times. Most were treated at home...
A couple of weeks ago the obese dictator of the people of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, disappeared from site. A North Korean defector and member of the South Korean parliament says he’s 99% certain that the thirty-six year old dictator is dead from a botched heart surgery, according to the wire...
Some of us older folks recall George Bush Jr. gleefully shouting “I’m the Decider” back in April 2006. We all heard that and thought it was pretty horrid. Then we remembered that Shrub, we called him Shrub because his Daddy was the big Bush, was immature and a few bricks short of a load. We didn’t...
One of the most enjoyable things I did last week was call Greg Van Hoever. Greg runs the kitchens at the Long Prairie - Grey Eagle schools. I knew Greg from when he used to buy watermelon from our farm to feed to the students. I remembered that Greg was always trying to make the food at school...

“In America and in India, we know that we are all born for a higher purpose: to reach toward our fullest potential, to work toward excellence and perfection, and to give all glory to God,” President Trump said at a huge rally in New Delhi, India, last week. In his speech, Mr. Trump extolled India’s...
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...
