Daughter Dawn

Five years ago I would be in Colorado or here hunting Elk. However, today I can no longer skin, quarter and pack an Elk back to my Jeep.

But the change from lifelong hunting has other pleasures. Shari Jo has created two oases for animals to drink water and we can see and photograph lots of desert creatures. I have no doubt she saved some lives. We have seen and photographed deer, javelina, coyotes, both red and grey foxes, bobcats, one cougar, ground squirrels, snakes, lizards and missed a picture of a mountain lion. Birds too drink at the oases: Hawks, owls, Gambel’s quail, doves, Roadrunners (our favorite), English sparrows and numerous small birds we can’t identify.

Trump: The shot heard round the country

If Donald Trump did not exist, he would have to be invented.
Illegal immigration, China, the economy, radical Islam? Yes, they are all important issues, as are others, but they are mere talking points compared to what frightens the establishment the most; voter sentiments of which our "esteemed" politicians and journalists may not even be aware.

Losing our civil society

If you watch the evening news, you witness the loss of our “civil society” at an ever-accelerating rate of speed. Make no mistake, more than a few criminals stalk and kill women. Snipers shoot at people driving down the highway from California to Michigan. Over 6,000 African-Americans kill 6,000 African-Americans annually. That’s 16 black deaths daily at the hands of other blacks. In the past month, eight police officers lost their lives to execution-style killings.

Iran nuclear deal shows votes won't matter

"Obama seals Iran deal win as Senate Democrats find 34 votes."

That was the headline from the Associated Press proclaiming Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) would vote to sustain a veto by President Barack Obama of any resolution of disapproval by Congress against the Iran nuclear deal.

Since when does it take 34 votes to adopt a treaty, or any other type of agreement with a foreign country that just happens to be our sworn enemy?
