From the emergence of Donald Trump on the Presidential candidacy stage he has been weighed by seasoned conservatives and found wanting. He has not hit the correct “note” on the keyboard of their crucial issues. He has not displayed the proper pedigree of experience or history of advocacy for the principles they, themselves expound much better. In a wide field of Republican politicians he came out, and by his brash display of incorrect comments demonstrated that he is not one.

And over and over again I heard from friends (for whom I had held high respect) some form of the complaint, “He’s not one of us” and “he is for big government.” (more…)

Observations from the first working day of the long awaited NEW 1-405 EXPRESS (TOLL) LANES!

  • i405expresstollrushBellevue north bound rush hour kicked in two hours early (at 12:15 – 12:30 pm) with the “peon” lanes clogged, going 20 mph,  and the new express lanes EMPTY.
  • North bound the new (“oh boy!!”), second HOV  lane  through the heart of Bellevue (now minimum 3+ occupants) slows traffic even further both by motorist confusion and by forcing travelers who a week ago used the HOV lane (thus at least marginally helping traffic flow) into the newly designated “peon” lanes.

In December 2013, secretly riddled with terminal cancer but in stridently active denial, Michele St. Pierre rode with Richard Finegold down Interstate 5 toward Southern California to visit her mother. As I write this today, in 2015 (from a booth in the corner of Roseburg, Oregon’s Elmer’s Restaurant), I am retracing a large portion of their trip elmer-s-restaurant(to the tune of about 1,500 miles) while reconstructing circumstances surrounding her death (and its immediate, violent aftermath). It has given me vivid recollections of this trip’s meaning… a meaning I discovered in 2006 and republish here, in honor of Michele’s memory.

I spent more than 14 hours behind the wheel the last few days.

Never in France light 2Driving interstate in America invokes poetry. The popular artists of my generation were those on whose watch, and under whose influence, occurred the near fatal wounding of our culture. Nevertheless, there was an almost universal recognition among them of a kind of magic they all experienced on our great highways, observing the home of the brave as it passed beneath their floorboards, borne forward on wheels empowered by the energy of abundant “fossil” fuels.

got coptersSaturday, April 12, 2014 was the day Cliven Bundy led a little band of patriots into the muzzle of Federal assault rifles to take back his grazing rights. Those men and women were voluntarily offering their lives in defense of Liberty, putting themselves at the mercy of  God.
And they were victorious.
God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are…
~ I Cor. 1:27, 28
Five days earlier the same principle was in operation as a young  girl called out the whole Enviro-communist movement on their destruction of the range, their destruction of liberty, their destruction of America.

household objects 2All our problems are attributable to inanimate objects.

Think of the evil they do!

Guns kill more people each year than any other issue the media focuses on. But there are also knives, pollution, and automobiles. Pollution itself is caused by inanimate chemicals.

If there were no guns no one would ever be killed by them (except when the police kill people who deserve it) and pollution is just as inanimate as guns.

Yes, we can tell that our problems are attributable to our stuff; all the inanimate objects. (more…)
