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.

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.

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.

I would like to preface this article by saying that if I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that giving up my guns would end the senseless violence in America, I would gladly throw them all in the Bermuda Triangle.

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.

I got a text from a friend last Thursday morning about guys he knows who are loading pickup trucks with water and other basics and heading out for Texas to help in the rescue and clean-up efforts. It’s not that they know anybody there or that they’ve been called to come help out, it’s just that they see a great need and they want to lend a hand.

We’ve been celebrating Labor Day since it was started by the American labor movement and became a federal holiday in 1894. The purpose of the holiday is to honor the American worker.

I recently read a report about a young lady who went to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede in Pidgeon Forge, Tennessee. It’s an entertaining wholesome show with outstanding horsemanship, specialty acts, comedy and a down home country dinner, an evening of good fun for the entire family.

America dodged a bullet on Saturday August 19, 2017 in Boston when, it seems that, at least on one side, cooler heads prevailed and decided to call off a rally that was all cocked and primed to continue the chaos that plagued Charlottesville, Virginia the week before.

We should know by now that Band-Aids, imaginary red lines, rhetoric and throwing money around does not work with dictators and fanatics. They step over the lines, ignore the warnings, take the money and continue down the same path they were on.
