This past week I attended a memorial for Randy Scruggs, a longtime friend, son of the late Earl Scruggs, and a multi-talented guitar player, producer, songwriter and performer.

The political mindset in this nation – and I am including myself in the mix – has deteriorated to the point that our minds are made up, to a big extent, by who it is that is proposing certain ideas, our disdain and intransigence triggered by mere words like Republican, Democrat, conservative or liberal, being of the opinion that the people these terms represent are either doing something acceptable to us or something underhanded, depending on which side we tend to line up with.

For many decades and through many presidential terms there have been promises to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, their traditional capitol for over two millennia and a part of the territory given to the Jews by God thousands of years ago.

I write a lot about work and attitude toward work because it is, and has been, such a large part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was raised in an atmosphere where there were few safety nets to catch the unemployed, and if the family was to have food and shelter, the breadwinner had no alternative but to earn a living.

It seems there is little middle ground concerning the Trump presidency. The feelings tend to run high – adoration or animosity, confidence or distrust, staunch support or rabid rebuttal – in some instances instigating downright hatred.

When I was a kid, the men in my life were straight-spoken, hard-working characters with sun-ripened faces and calloused hands. They got up early, drank coffee and ate a big breakfast before they headed out to another day of giving their bosses a day’s labor for a day's wages.

When I was in the seventh grade in Wilmington, North Carolina, our class took field trips to local businesses and government entities, so the students could see our society in action.

When you walk into a fast food shop that employs teenagers and twenty-somethings, you can pick the winners from the losers fairly easily.

I recently spent time with an old and dear friend of mine. Our relationship goes back a long way, and we haven’t had the chance to visit for any concentrated amount of time for many years.

This past week marked the fifty-year anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Jesus related a parable about a man who built his house on the sand and a man who built his house on a rock, and when the storms came the house whose foundation was sand collapsed while the house on the rock stood solidly against the raging of the wind and water.

I do not live in, nor pay taxes in the state of California or any of the other sanctuary cities or areas. So what goes on there does not affect my daily life, but it does affect the future and security of the United States. And it’s at that point that my commentary is aimed.

As of this writing, there has been a somewhat murky exploratory proposal – or more aptly overture – from Kim Jong-un for talks between himself and President Trump.

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.
