The international mindset has changed a good ninety degrees from the time of my early youth when things like honesty, duty, the sacred obligation of bringing a child into the world, providing for one's family and a basic belief in an Almighty, just and omnipotent God were the basics of life in the Western World.

I write this letter, laying aside any partisan political preferences I may have, any animosity I may feel toward either major party or individual member of any governing body, federal, state or local, as I would like to address you from the view point of a concerned, patriotic American who has been blessed to, first of all, be born in this nation, to have experienced its unique opportunities and freedoms, and as one who is seriously concerned that our political process is about to go off the rails taking the greatest nation the world has never known with it.

The recent school shooting in Florida has, once again, saddened, frightened and left a bewildered nation looking for answers, answers that are illusive and exasperated by the "quick fix," one-size-fits-all rush to judgement of politicians who are not above trying to capitalize on a crisis, even one as heartbreaking as this one.

I have been in business for sixty years, and lots of people think that the business I'm in is not really a business at all but rather a frivolous undertaking populated by those who never really grow up, who bounce around the world walking on stages, showing off their wares, picking up a check and moving on to another place with bright lights and extravagant amenities to do it again.

It’s been over a year since the election that totally amazed America. To those who voted for Donald Trump it was a refreshing miracle, as the “rust belt,” the much-maligned coal miners, those who were tired of watching ISIS grow stronger, those who hated the fact that America had a president who refused to even identify our sworn blood enemy by its proper name, had finally had their voices heard.

President Trump's first State of the Union address was actually boycotted by members of Congress and "frowned on" by many others (pun intended).

We almost lost our country last fall. America was unwittingly on the precipice of becoming a nation whose government was willing to go to illegal and devious lengths to maintain the status quo.

My wife and myself are currently on our yearly vacation in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado, something we’ve done almost annually for the last 21 years.

I believe that our Creator wants us to take courage and change the things that are within our control: a family matter, a job decision, or whatever else falls under our personal purview – to do the best we can, and sometimes that means going against the crowd, which does take great courage.

First of all, I want to wish all of you a most happy and blessing-filled 2018.

I know that I am not privy to the intelligence and other strategic information that comes across a president’s desk every day and know that the decisions they make have to be predicated on the current and ongoing data supplied by the myriad of agencies that glean and comb through the domestic and international happenings on a 24/7 basis, and therefore, I am not qualified to evaluate and decide how to deal with it with only tip of the iceberg information.

December 7, 1941, as we all know was the day the Japanese executed a sneak attack on the United States Naval Base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii destroying much of the fleet stationed there and severely limiting America’s military presence in the Pacific.

The preamble of our Constitution says, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union … .”

This column is not partisan in nature and does not absolve either political party from what I will say below. Both parties are guilty, both complicit and both equally responsible for the impasse and log jam that now exists on Capitol Hill.

Not being a history buff, all I know about the establishment of Thanksgiving is what I was taught in school, which was that the Pilgrims – those who had undertaken the long pilgrimage to the new world to find freedom of religion and get out from under the thumb of an oppressive European Monarchy and its attendant assortment of Lords, Earls, Dukes, and aristocracy – got together to give thanks to God for providing for them in the new world.

The recent terrorist attack in New York City has once again forced us to face the ugly fact that our War on Terror is ongoing, deadly and that the enemy we’re dealing with is cunning, resourceful and able to adapt to the ever-changing security methods and protocols we have in place. They’ve learned to change tactics from major bombings and crashing airplanes into buildings to turning common motor vehicles into juggernauts of death, mowing down innocent pedestrians and crashing into busloads of children.

As I sit here in Decatur, Alabama on an unusually cool late October Saturday morning, wondering if the rain will hold off for our outdoor show tonight, the first day of being 81 seems no different than my last day of being 80.

I recently had an experience that made me realize just how little is correct about political correctness and how warped, impractical and downright silly the ramifications of it are.

Among the many divisions our nation suffers now, none is more thought-provoking or questions long standing laws and principles and what America is about than DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals), popularly known as the Dreamers program.

My friends and neighbors, my brothers and sisters, my supporters, my detractors, Democrat, Republican, Baptist, Catholic, sophisticates and fellow hillbillies, lend me your ears, or rather your eyes for a few minutes.
