El Nino solution

Body
Smart people who learn about stuff no one else wants to study are called scientists and, in most cases, these scientists require a lot of money in which to conduct their studies and experiments. In fact, research has shown that we are wasting millions of dollars by funding some of the most ridiculous research programs ever imagined by man, ever.

The Turn of the Screw

Body
I was required to read a number of books in my school years, but none was as troubling and frustrating as a horror novel by James Joyce entitled “The Turn of the Screw.” As disturbing as the plot, however, was the lack of credibility of the narrator. One did not know whether to believe what was being described or not.

Voting Rights

Body
Going to bed on election night it looked as if President Trump might win the election. But as the mail-in votes started being counted the next day, Trump’s lead slipped away in many important swing states. With mail-in voting and early voting occurring because of COVID-19, there have been many discussions about voting rights. Some say voting is a right and measures need to be made to guarantee everyone has the right to vote, whereas others say more measures are needed to protect the integrity of the vote. Both sides have made strong arguments and each person needs to weigh out these arguments personally. While I am in no way saying we should restrict voting, historically speaking, voting was never intended to be a right.

Thanksgiving 2020 sounds like an oxymoron

Body
Thanksgiving 2020… not a lot to be thankful for, but when you think about it, folks during the very fi rst Thanksgiving so long ago, had it pretty rough too, but they found something to say thanks about.

As COVID-19 winter approaches, Oklahoma must act

Body
Oklahoma set a record for COVID-19 hospitalizations last week, and the United States reached a grim milestone of more than 250,000 coronavirus deaths. After earlier surges in the spring and summer, the country is now in the midst of the feared fall coronavirus surge and we’re peering into the darkness that winter will bring. With more than 1,500 Oklahomans now hospitalized and new positive cases averaging more than 2,600 per day, it’s time for Oklahoma to act.

The Generation Gap

Body
By all sources found on the world wide web, I am a “Gen Z”. The tide pod eating generation. Both my siblings are part of “Gen Y”, the millennials. My parents are part of “Gen W” or the Baby boomers.

Historic Election?

Body
“In this historic election.” How many times have you heard this over the past two weeks? In truth, there are some historic elements. This election had the greatest number of votes cast in history. Is that historic or population growth? It’s also a higher voter percentage than we have seen in some time, but nowhere close to the highest. A woman on the winning ticket is most definitely historic, so much in fact that I am stumped on how to make a comparison. This past week most of the attention seems to be on Trump’s refusal to admit defeat. But that is not historic either. Many have called this the most important election in our lives, whereas, in fact, it is just the most recent.

Adventures with Allie

Body
Merry Christmas everybody! Now that halloween has come and gone, it’s offcially time to celebrate my absolute favorite holiday, Christmas. Christmas with my family is always a two or three week ordeal, and while we do celebrate on December 25, its always the week after Christmas that I get all giddy like a kid on, well… Christmas.

Our Scandalous FBI

Body
The FBI is back in the news again, this time with the revelation that it has had in its possession a laptop once belonging to Hunter Biden and containing highly incriminating emails about the Biden family. Those emails amount to exculpatory evidence showing that President Trump had very good reasons for asking that the Ukrainian government
