Remember back in the late ’80s and early ’90s, when the Berlin Wall was coming down and all the talk about perestroika and glasnost were making the rounds, when Gorbachev came to power and was being viewed as the great Russian reformer who would bring about the long-awaited change that would bring the deprived population into prosperity and twenty-first century convenience, when scores of MiG fighter jets were mothballed at obscure Balkan air bases and the Russian leadership was making overtures about better relations and stronger ties with the west?

The recent massacre of five of America's finest young men in Chattanooga, Tennessee starkly points out the failure of our government – both political parties – to deal with a complex problem that will not go away.

Did Barack Obama pull off the diplomatic coup of the century, or did he just open Pandora's nuclear box?

In a time when it's as evident as the nose on your face that Russia has a leader who is every bit as ambitious, dangerous and possibly even slightly demented as any hardline communist butcher who ever ruled over the old Soviet empire, it is clear that they are up to their old tricks of violating American air space with their war planes and operating their submarines just off our coast for no other reason than to check our resolve as to how far we are willing to let them go.

There was a time when members of the European nobility could have a member of the lower classes flogged, incarcerated, tortured and even executed without standing trial before a jury of their peers.

I have just completed a leg of our 2015 tour that has taken me across the entire heartland of America, Pacific to Atlantic, and once again I'm deeply touched by what this country means to me.

The recent senseless act of slaughter in a church in Charleston, South Carolina awakened America to the ever-present lunacy and evil that walks among us, and it has also reopened some old wounds and deep feelings on both sides of a long festering situation.

“What is ‘truth’?”Pontius Pilate asked this question as Jesus Christ stood in front of him accused of crimes against Rome.

The government of the United States of America was not formed and instituted for despots to rule over, spy on, dictate to, nor in any other way dominate its citizens. Rather, it was formed to protect and serve. It was created to patrol the borders, control the flow of immigrants and international commerce, insure the civil rights of its citizens and build and maintain infrastructure to keep the wheels of progress turning.

We all know that one of the prime motivating factors that leads to the early immigration to the United States of America was freedom – freedom from a monarchy and freedom from a societal class system that placed the working people at the bottom of the food chain. They fled to America for freedom to achieve whatever their intellect and industry was capable of, but most important of all, they came to America for the freedom to worship God in whatever way they chose.

This letter is not written in a spirit of hate or disrespect. Nor is it motivated in any way by racial bias. It is written with respect due the office and the awesome tasks that have been laid on your shoulders.

The failings of the Obama Administration begin at the very top, because incompetence breeds incompetence, hires incompetence and attempts to cover incompetence, and it does so with innuendo, lies and simply pretending that a bad situation doesn't even exist in hopes that it will go away.

December 7, 1941 was a cold gray day in coastal North Carolina, the kind of day when you were glad you could stay inside.

"It is rather for us, the living, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that, from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain; that the nation, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." - Abraham Lincoln

I heard on television this weekend that there is a very real possibility that Russia and China are both closing the gap in regards to their air power and could even surpass the U.S. in a few years, which is a most frightening prospect to say the very least.

To watch what unfolded in Baltimore this past week is an unsettling experience to say the least, no matter what level of society or affluence you come from. It should serve as a wakeup call to all, because Baltimore, Ferguson et al., is not the four-alarm we tend to think of it as being. Rather, it is the fuse that could very well ignite powder kegs all over the country.

The 70’s were a time of change, a huge shifting of the generational tectonic plates, an influx of new ideas, new music and the lessening of moral standards. The "if it feels good do it" generation was coming out of its shell, influenced by radical "tune in, turn on and drop out" revolutionaries who sought to change America to suit their own lawless purposes.

I sometimes wonder if President Obama's knowledge of history reaches back past the days of the radicals, the flower children, the draft-card burning and draft dodging of the late 1960’s and if he hasn't read a lot more Saul Alinsky than Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

The simple, blue-collar society I was raised in would probably be considered, if not poor, at least far down the financial scale. We lived in a rented house, which had electricity, but our plumbing consisted of a hand pump on the back porch and a sanitary facility you had to walk to.
