You?

It is Thanksgiving, 2019. In my opinion, one to not be remembered. This year, being thankful for the great nation I was fortunate to be born into isn’t even near the top of my list. What a mess our government has made of itself. Fortunately for you three as individuals because you are not directly …

Doing Anything?

It has been a while since my senators have heard from me. I’ve been wondering what, if anything they are doing? According to the media, the only thing in Washington DC is possible impeachment of Trump – for something… My Colorado Senators: I have been remiss in writing to you for a number of reasons …

I’m Not the Only One…

Occasionally (or maybe I should say “rarely”) I read a letter to the editor or a column that mirrors my feelings. When I see one that says, even better than I can say, my feelings, beliefs, attitudes, and opinions, I’m immediately taken aback! Such a letter appeared in the electronic version of today’s Grand Junction …

More of Same, SHAME!

I’ve been remiss over the last few weeks but my Congressmen have not. Here’s my comments regarding their lack of action on things actually important! My Colorado Congressmen: We’ve started FY 2020 operating the federal government financing under an immediate “continuing resolution.”  Is that indicative of how the entire year is going to go…again?  You …

They’re Baaack!

Yep, They’re back. It had to happen. Good, bad or indifferent the reigns of government are now in the hands of Congress again. We’re approaching an election year (but you already knew that or you are comatose) so the appearance of Congressional members accomplishing things will fill the media. Get ready. My Congressional Representatives: You …

Count the votes my way for my election but…

Congress takes August off (and then some) so I suppose I might as well take August off too – it only seems fair.  On the way I had to ask how The House would like it if each of them were elected using the same logic that the states apply to the Electoral College and …

… So Few … So Many

My Senator Cory Gardner sent out an email message on July 1, accolading himself for all the good things he’s doing.  Unfortunately, I disagree with his enthusiasm over his listed issues:   Senator Gardner: I just went back and reviewed your July 1 message I received via email.  I know you try to keep your …

Take Aim, Pull the Trigger

If we don’t do something NOW about the damage the national Popular Vote Movement could do to our nation then we will not be the United STATES anymore…  This letter a followup to a letter in the 6/23 Grand Junction Sentinel from County Commissioner Rose Pugliese.   Representatives: Mesa Colorado County Commissioner Rose Pugliese was …

“I” needs a rest!

Impeach – Investigate – Immunity – I words…they go on and on and on in todays federal government. “I” words, over and over and over.  Come on Congress, give it a rest!!!   My Colorado Representatives:   I’ve come to the conclusion we need to remove some “I” from Congress.  Understanding that “I” is a …

A letter from Melania Trump – or maybe the RNC?

A personal letter to me from Melania Trump – asking me for help?  Yeah, right! I have never lost much sleep over what the Republican National Comittee (RNC) is doing because in my mind they’ve done little to help the conservative cause.  A real-life example of the shakespearian phrase, “Much ado about nothing.” So it …
