I am grateful that my column reader numbers are way up since I began writing for The Resurgent.com in addition to Townhall.com. I’ve already gotten over 50 messages about this one, the subject matter is something I’ve been thinking about and praying about a great deal. Quite frankly, barring some miracle between now and November, and assuming either Trump or Hillary become President, I think we will be living in the last years of America. I think its that bad. But our future is in no way hopeless, and that’s the real topic of the column.
BTW: Most of the tweets and messages I am receiving from readers are positive. But I do get the occasional that I got today. Here are two, I will leave the screen names off in order to not give the sender too much attention:
God Hates You!
and another one said
God wants you to die you miserable ****.
That’s just a sampling of the rage that’s out there. Both of these were avid Trump supporters. I am betting that neither of these people actually read my column.
Well, after 10 years of writing columns, I have never gotten more tweets, FB messages, and feedback as I got on yesterday’s column. Bree, if you are still out there reading, I have no intention of banning you from this blog. This is not the first time you have chastened me and I always listen. However, I am not sure you read my column thoroughly. My main point was/is that any moral high ground we choose to occupy must include in the risk assessment the possibility of Clinton. I meant what I said. I don’t think the Republic will survive it. Also, if you have read this blog all these years and still don’t know that I WELL know that our hope is in Christ and not in Kings or governments, then you haven’t paid adequate attention. However, if ISIS has taught us anything, it is that God does not always spare his people from the consequences of horrible geo-political decisions. Just look at the trail of torture and death ISIS has visited upon Christians in that region.
All that being said, I already regret having written the article yesterday. I feel confident I will end up once and for all in the #nevertrump, #neverHillary camps. (have always been in the latter). But I was in the never Obama camp as much as anybody and we still got 8 years of the guy.
A column which I am not particularly proud to have written but that reflects current reality as it exists. All I need is a good third party candidate to step firmly into the #NeverTrump camp. #NeverHillary goes without saying. And all this after i said I wouldn’t write about Presidential politics anymore. Here is the column.
This is actually an updated rewrite of my very first published short story and is still the story that is most dear to my heart. I was in a mood last night and rewrote it when it was way to late to get it to run by today. Because of that I see a couple of awkward wording spots now. Still, I think anyone who had a beloved grandparent will find it poignant. Hope you enjoy it.
One of my favorite pastimes is watching my favorite football teams. Or at least it was before the NFL decided to attack Christians as being guilty of discrimination against gay people which is ridiculous. I wrote a letter to both the NFL and my former favorite team. Then I sent it to both of them.
Here is the letter
Happy to see my first column on The Resurgent.com. I will now be able to write for both then, Townhall.com and West Kentucky Star.com. That’s quite a bit of exposure.
For those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook (I already posted these on there), I had two columns published last week. The first speaks to Revolution. Are we undergoing a mini-revolution in 2016?
The second is to rebut a the accusations that coal fueled power plants are leading to the acidification of the oceans. If you’ve seen stories of that type my column will help you refute them.
Thanks for reading them and sharing them as you see fit.

Dennis Prager is one of my favorite writers and social commentators. Every once in a while a column comes along that is just so worthwhile I go ahead and share it here. Though disturbing, this one is excellent. As you read it ask yourself this question, doesn’t whoever the next president is need an incredibly strong moral base to guide him? How can any mortal navigate the waters as described here without an intimate relationship with Almighty God?
