Today is the day we set aside every year to honor those who have served our nation in our armed forces. My memory goes back to a blustery Sunday in 1941 – December 7 to be exact – when my family gathered around my grandparents big floor model radio to listen to a scratchy overseas broadcast informing us that Japanese war planes had attacked our Naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, doing massive damage to a major part of the Pacific Fleet that was moored there.

Some of my first vivid memories are the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the opening days of the Second World War, and the first news about the attack came to us over the radio.

When United Nations Resolution 181 was implemented in 1948, the agreement among the nations that a small sliver of land along the Mediterranean Sea – roughly the size of New Jersey – should be given to the Jews of the world. The children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob began arriving in the homeland they had prayed for, wept for and longed for for nearly two thousand years.

Gun control is one of the most divisive subjects in America, a “cause celeb,” a political football, a challenge to the Second Amendment and a thumb perpetually being stuck in the eye of law abiding citizens by President Obama.

The modern day process for electing a president, seems to me, to be more of media circus and a personality pageant than the serious, issue-oriented, truth-seeking operation it should be.

Vladimir Putin breezed into New York, did a 60 Minutes interview, addressed the United Nations General Assembly, announced what amounts to a takeover of the leadership role in the Middle East and left Barack Obama standing on the sidelines with his hat in his hand.

America has always been known as the champion of huddled masses, the refuge for the poor and politically dispossessed, a haven of peace and safety, a land of opportunity where the poorest of immigrants could become the head of a corporation or at the least begin a successful family business to be passed down through the generations.

I watched the Republican presidential debates Wednesday night in hopes that – this being the second debate – the people asking questions would steer the subject away from personalities and addressing verbal insults the candidates had made about each other and toward some meaningful dialogue dealing with the mountain of serious issues the next president will have to deal with.

The influx of refugees from the perpetually war-torn Middle East currently flooding Europe presents a problem of immense measures right now, but the current problems it presents pales in comparison to the problems it will present in the future.

Last weekend was Labor Day Weekend, and ninety-four million Americans are still not in the labor force.

Kate Steinle was in the prime of life. She was 31 years old, she was beautiful, a family person and a productive citizen.

The recent rash of undercover videos involving Planned Parenthood's harvesting of organs and body parts from aborted babies would be bad enough without the accompanying dialogue, but when you add the macabre comments and the downright frivolous attitude of the people representing Planned Parenthood it could well be an English speaking version of something that happened in Dr. Josef Mengele's laboratory in Hitler's Germany.

I am a proud American who believes that America has held – and still holds – a very sensitive and special place in the affairs of mankind on Planet Earth. I believe that America has been divinely blessed and protected in our two centuries plus of existence.

Largely due to my deep religious beliefs, my pro-American stance on international affairs, my convictions concerning domestic and social policies and my intransigence in holding on to them, I am often accused of being a racist, a person who wants to see people starve and wants to take away a woman's right to control her body, among other things.

Today, August 12, 2015 we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of a Tennessee tradition called the Volunteer Jam.

Somewhere between people fleeing the tyranny of monarchy and the class system and the unfair practices it fostered, the folks looking for the freedom to practice their deeply held religious beliefs – those ordinary human beings who only wanted a chance to control their own lives and fortunes with their wits and sweat and the adventurers who wanted to be a part of taming a new land – yes, somewhere between this breed of men and women and the present day, America's train has jumped the track.

Federal entitlements, regardless of whatever clever antonym or fancy bureaucratic name they go by are actually charity, or at least that is what they started out as.

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.
