The Truth Remains – June 2018 Newsletter

J. Ogden Murray clearly sets forth his purpose in his Preface to the text, The Confederate Soldier, The Ideal Soldier of the World. I can only add my historical observations of the past one hundred and eight years since its publication. Murray correctly states that the War 1861 – 1865, was “cruel, unjust and illegal…waged with fanatical malice”. […]

Liberty

   Mankind has been in pursuit of liberty for centuries; it is one of those nebulous concepts impossible to shake. Children raised without guidance seek liberty from their parents, families seek liberty from debt, spouses seek liberty from abuse, citizens seek liberty from tyranny. It does appear that everyone wants liberty yet most are unable […]

History Matters: Particularly What Isn’t Taught

  The understanding and comprehension of history is not only important it is critical. It is not only vital but it has been commanded by God for our admonition (II Timothy 2:15, Hosea 4:6, Deut. 28:58, II Chron.34).   Frequently we hear folk say innocently, “Oh, that was over a  hundred years ago, it doesn’t […]

Civil War Sesquicentennial: Reconstruction – War on the Mind and Spirit?

   The horrible, tragic and unnecessary war in which the effusion of blood was halted in 1865, has reverberated through the centuries and enabled alert observers to see the intended consequences of those echoes; decade after decade. When General Lee surrendered the remnant of the Army of Northern Virginia (approx.26,000 men) to General Grant (approx. […]

What Government Does Well

     The Constitution of the United States is a beautifully written and simply worded document that enumerates the function of our central government. All other functions are the purview of the several Sovereign States, or the people. Article X of the Bill of Rights states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by […]

To Young People Everywhere

      Older folk are full of truisms because after one lives long enough there is sufficient evidence to prove the truism “true”. At an early age, without the resource of experience, it is often impossible to fathom why older people say what they do. The better part of wisdom should tell you that […]

The Sum of the Issue

In the first book of Moses called Genesis we find in Chapter 1 verse 27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created he them.” We have been gifted among all creatures with a body possessing locomotion and dexterity, a mind capable of […]

The Price of Gasoline

  The price of a gallon of gasoline has more to say about the worthlessness of the US Dollar than it does about “Big Oil”. When gasoline is $3.00 a gallon, here’s where the money goes: $1.40 – 47% – Product Suppliers (owners of the crude, refiners & transportation) $ .70 – 23% – Federal […]

The Pledge of Allegiance

     The “Pledge of Allegiance” like the “Gettysburg Address” is pretty poetry and has the power to make one’s heart swell, but in terms of fact and upon close examination of words, both are nothing more than specious political propaganda. And that propaganda has been fed to inmates of government day care centers called schools […]

The Conundrum of Denial

     Light may be defined as illumination in darkness; while it is dark we cannot see the obstructions or dangers on our path. Light might also be defined as the illumination of knowledge giving revelation to here-to-for unknown facts. Revelation is after all the engine that progresses humanity farther up the ladder of enlightened civilization; […]
