FLOWER MOUND, TX — May 10, 2021 —  When I look at the news today and see the way police are being vilified by left wing America-haters like Antifa and Black Thugs Matter, I think back to the New York Police Academy where I trained for 4 months in the middle sixties to get prepared for facing the world as …

FLOWER MOUND, TX — May 3, 2021 —  A serious problem in our country is the lack of commitment to the Constitution and the rejection of the moral values that made us the envy of the world. We are the inheritors of a nation born out of a hard-fought revolution, which freed us from tyranny and provided us with the …

FLOWER MOUND, TX — April 25, 2021 —  Does anyone think that blacks are weak, incapable folks in need of constant help from whites in order to survive? That’s not the image I have of Blacks. In fact, as far as I’m concerned, Blacks have proven themselves to be extremely strong and resilient. A weak race of people couldn’t have …

FLOWER MOUND, TX — April 15, 2021 —  I’d like to take a rational look at the confrontations between cops, motorists and pedestrians. When we see incidents of cops shooting blacks (which are the only shootings the media covers), one thing becomes clear; resisting arrest often ends up with a loss of life.

FLOWER MOUND, TX — April 5, 2021 —  The purpose of this column is to illustrate that every white person is a racist, even if they don’t know it. At least that’s the theory being foisted on the American public by some of the most radical “thinkers” in the country. Not only are whites racist, but the law and legal …

FLOWER MOUND, TX — March 21, 2021 —  Every time I hear the term “white privilege” I wonder how I missed out on all the extra opportunities that term implies. Growing up in a rat and roach infested tenement on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the 1950s didn’t seem to me as though I was being pampered because …

FLOWER MOUND, TX — February 24, 2021 —   Do you ever get the feeling that our elected officials have nothing but disdain for their constituents? Do you feel that Republicans and Democrats are in a war with each other for dominance, while the American people are just onlookers in a spiteful and vindictive political tennis match?

NEWARK, NJ — November 3, 2020 — It is the eve of the 2020 election and still no agreement has been reached on a second coronavirus relief bill.
