Representative Government Makes a Comeback
In our world of increasing deception and group think, I often lean on Bill O’Reilly’s “No Spin News” as a solid news source. It’s worth the monthly fee ($5.25) to get an honest view of national and world events.
I agree with O’Reilly about 90% of the time because our worldviews are closely aligned. But this week I disagreed with him on the House of Representatives “Speaker” vote. He thought it was a waste of time with too much grandstanding.
I view it as representative government making a much needed comeback.
Memorial Day 2022: The Bravest Boehme
My 89-year old mom and I will visit Sunset Lane today–our hometown cemetery–to honor loved ones on Memorial Day. The scenic property overlooking Sinclair Inlet will be bedecked with 200 American flags honoring those who fought for our freedom.
We will walk the grounds and place home-grown flowers by the tombstones of our loved ones. We must never forget their love of God and family, and their devotion to our country.
“Forgetting” should be considered a sin in our lives.
Every Memorial Day I love to honor my “Uncle Dick” Boehme who gave his life for our country.
He is the Bravest Boehme.

There’s no doubt we live in an age of dictators and maybe the beginning of a new world war.
Here’s my view.
