Carbon Dioxide is a Valuable Gas

I recently read an interesting article in the Range Magazine for Winter 2022, Bits and Spurs pp 26-27. The author, Robb Kendrick, says that he worked for National Geographic for 32 years. I am sure it is evident that if someone has worked for National Geographic for 32 years, they are probably not predisposed to […]

Did Righteousness Fail?

Elections have consequences and the election just past is no exception. There have been a few dramatic wins, but also some heartbreaking losses. America is in serious trouble today, and I believe that was made clear by the recent election. Candidates that should have won by dramatic margins actually lost. Americans have a tendency to […]

Climate Folly

Proverbs 22:5 tells us: “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child, but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.” I am sure we have all experienced times with certain of our children when they wanted to do things that were foolish.

What’s Happened to the Democrats?

When I worked at the Bunker Hill Mine in Kellogg, Idaho, most of my associates were Democrats—good Americans. They were family men, hard-working, clean living and reasonable.
