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.

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.

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.

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.

I saw the strength of America this past weekend, her will, her goodness, her compassion, her unity and her greatness.

One has only to do a little research to see the ravages of socialism. The latest notable example being Venezuela, and if you’ve paid any attention to the news the last couple of years, you’ve watched an oil rich nation slide into an abyss of deprivation and near starvation.

The controversy about professional athletes refusing to stand for the playing of our National Anthem has reached the highest office in the land, and while I’m not sure that’s the proper venue for the airing out of such a divisive issue, sooner or later it’s going to have to come to a head, and what the ramifications will be are still not clear at this time.
