Old School

I'm old school. A lot of people say that but what they mean is they miss the world they grew up in. The cars, the music, their youth.

That's Old School Lite.

Old school means a country with tough people with their eyes open. They treat people fairly and demand the same from others. They will kill in defence of their country.

Old school means my country right or wrong, my President right or wrong.

Lately, I havn't been able to reconcile being an old school patriot with my eyes tell me. My eyes tell me the President really doesn't feel the same. Doesn't like our country.

Now what

Thanksgiving.

My first Thanksgiving as the grandfather of two. I spent my life thinking "hope I die before I get old." Who knew it was the best part of life.
I'm thankful to God for all of the things I have.

Robert Kennedy's touching tribute to his brother.

At the 1964 national convention, Robert F. Kennedy addressed the convention with what became famous as his "Stars" speech. He quoted Shakespeare when speaking of his brother, the late President John F. Kennedy. "When he shall die, cut him into little stars, and he shall make the face of heaven so fond, that all the world will fall in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun."

Al Pacino won as an Oscar for his portrayel of a former Army Lt. Colonol, now blind and alone who cruises New York City in style one last time. This is my favorite part of the movie. It's one of my favorite parts of any movie.

The Election is Over!

The election is over in Ft.Dodge  and I'm delighted at the outcome. Election to a 4800 dollar a year job should never entitle anyone to treat others with contempt and cruelty. The irony here is Councilman Wilson is hurting the people he says he serves by making them feel they're second lass citizens who need his protection. Gets him what he wants but I wouldn't want to go through live being told I'm nothing but a poor south sider.

It's about the poor?

Seems there is a lot of concern about those on a fixed income, even for the poor, from those who have done very well in Ft.Dodge. The town has been in a steady decline, poverty has gone up dramatically, we have a need for programs to feed hungry children and we're told to slow down or stop any new ideas. This from people who have become wealthy while again, the town has declined and our standard o...f living has tanked. They'll tell those on fixed incomes "We're on your side" or "THEY are going to waste your money." They could care less about those with less than they do but they'll scare people, get them angry by implying a secret cabal is running things to benefit of a few, they're snobs, they're arrogant and we need to fire them and put in place...those who serve the interests of a wealthy few who are content and eagerly anticipate keeping the town poor and the people poor because that makes them KINGS! But if you listen, all they have to say is "it's all about those on fixed incomes." It's creepy but it works. Look at who's talking and ask yourself how some of these guys made so much money when the town did so badly,when so many kids are signed up for food assistance at our schools. C'mon...ask yourself this simple question... "is it really about those on fixed incomes? About the poor?"

He's not a socialist.

Representative Spencer Bachus, a Republican from Alabama's 6th district is on record as saying 17 members of the House of Representatives are socialists... In 2007, Bachus made trades with a number of short term stock options, betting that stocks would rise or fall for a quick profit or loss. Bachus made up to $160,000, including a bet in March that the stock market would drop that earned him be...tween $15,000 and $50,000. Most members of Congress hold some stocks or mutual funds, but Bachus' rapid-fire trades are unusual for a leading member of Congress, particularly one with the key role of ranking member of the House Committee on Financial Services.[11]

From July through November 2008, Bachus traded in options at least forty times, making money from betting against the market as it collapsed that year. During this period, Bachus was one of the Congressional leaders getting private briefings from Secretary of the Treasury Hank Paulson and Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Ben Bernanke about the worsening financial crisis.[12] Bachus said that he "never trades on non public information, or financial services stocks".[13]

Bachus bought option funds that would go up in value if the financial market went down right before the Financial Crisis in 2008 directly following a closed door session with Fed Chairman and Treasury Secretary, in which he was informed of the pending financial crash.

Well...he's not a socialist. They wouldn't have him.

Doonie and the paper.

If your news source is Coucilman Wilson's favorite news source you will get a statement fom the councilman, a statement that will tell us only what the Councilman wants us to know, a statement designed to make him look reasonable and co-operative. It appears Councilman Wilson doesn't like questions regarding his self-interest and enjoys asking tough questions of those he disagrees with. The local paper lets him get away with that. I won't and nobody at Three Eagles will either. I will continue to ask Councilman Wilson questions on-air and he can come on and answer or not. The bottom line is you will not get a well-rounded picture from the local paper and you will here.

Gay people

Gay people will be respected on my program. I may disagree with court imposed marriage but I won't have people insulted. I really think the same courtesy should be extended to the Catholic Church.
