This way of doing business should appall every one of us. During the appropriations process for this fiscal year, which began on October 1, 2019, as I’ve done in the past, I voted no on CRs after no progress was made. Our appropriations process is a mess. Unless more of us take a stand and reject the status quo, we’ll never get back to where we need to be to actually impact spending and to begin to rein-in our debt.

  • O Christmas Tree
    Saturday, December 7, 2019 9:42 AM
    So when you look at the Christmas tree, let those great memories and feelings come back to you for a while. A lot of our time is spent being on the run in what society has called “the rat race.” Very little time is allotted to remembering the events that make living so very much worthwhile. Maybe the best way to remember to take that time is when you hear the carol “O Christmas Tree” take that moment. I know I do. What is life without those awesome memories?

    Most of us aren't all that far apart in these great United States. Most of us get up – I won't say we get up in the morning, since I spent years working the graveyard shift – and we go to work. We put in an honest day's work. We stop by the store and head home. We do it again the next day. The next week. The next month. The next year. We raise our families. We live our lives. On the worst days, we bury our dead. We are far too busy to play the swamp games that have gone on for far too long in the nation's capital.

    In response to a recent column by Jim Thompson, I want to draw attention to a remarkable document on climate change and national security.

  • Why trust matters
    Friday, December 6, 2019 8:22 AM
    The fact is: In a system that depends on negotiation, compromise and cooperation to achieve our goals, finding ways to build trust is essential. Without it, our democracy simply won’t work.

    Our holiday gift list is complete. We have finished the farm chores for the day and even though the cabin could stand a good dusting, the sun is not shining in through the windows and the dust is really quite well hidden. The fire in the woodstove burns bright, and the cabin is wonderfully, beautifully warm. Perhaps it is a good day to do what I so love to do: sit at my long work bench and sort marbles.

  • Supporting small businesses
    Thursday, December 5, 2019 7:14 AM
    Growing a business or keeping it afloat through all seasons of changing trends, variable input costs and other ups-and-downs is far from easy. America’s small business owners represent profound determination. They are the energy and vision propelling our nation.

  • Is the climate change crowd getting desperate?
    Wednesday, December 4, 2019 2:51 PM
    The real problem is the scientific and the political leadership worlds have blown their credibility. Many of us will not believe their line. They have lied or exaggerated to us too many times in the past.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when my great-great-great grandfather Joshua Brown, the patriarch of the Brown-Roush Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm owned by Ken and Judy Roush of Highland County, was born May 6, 1807, Thomas Jefferson was president of the United States and Ohio had been a state for two whopping years.

  • Giving Medicare for all a facelift: the ugly is still there
    Tuesday, December 3, 2019 11:57 AM
    Even those who are numb to government overspending can see the broader problem of inviting Uncle Sam into their lives in exchange for a Medicare card in their wallet. Any remaining privacy is erased. Physicians and patients would be robbed of their autonomy and choice by medical care policies set by the government monopoly.
