Go By What They Do, Not By What They Say

After watching the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates it is painfully obvious anyone with half a brain won’t believe a word that is said. Actions speak louder than words. Biden basically said he would do what Trump has already done. If...

 

Stoopid is still Stupid!!!

Anytime the news is on that old saying most, but obviously not all of us were taught when young, comes to mind. “If you can’t say something nice about someone, say nothing at all.” All the way from the biggest snakes on the national news to the...

 

The New Word For The Day Is "SEDITION"

As usual, this old farmer has more questions than answers. Newt Gingrich was on Fox News with Harris Faulkner the other day. He brought up the question of why George Soros is not held responsible for funding Antifa and BLM. Harris immediately hushed...

 

Terrorist, Voting, Guns and Some Common Sense

What in the world is going on with our world? Hopefully most of the problems are because it is an election year. The deep state knows that if Trump gets four more years they are going down. The rest of us know that ifBiden “I sway anyway the wind...

 

As Ole Would Say "Get Over It!"

We humans are quite the species! If a person watches the news one can’t help but wonder how many subspecies of human there are out there. Skin color has absolutely nothing to do with it. The radical left that has taken over the democratic party...

 

Whats Next Sharia Law???

Collusion, collusion, collusion, covid, covid, covid! Now it’s racism, racism, racism! The radical left politicians and politician wannabes are showing just how short they are on patience and even more so on smarts. Yes there are bad doctors, bad... Full story

 

On Which Side of The Fence Do You Lay?

Obama’s dream when he first ran for president was to “Transform America.” His idea of a transformation was to turn the greatest nation in the world into a communist third world country. He managed in eight years to double the national debt ran... Full story

Lack of Hygiene Cures Social Distancing

What in the world is one of our political parties doing to our country? They threaten to put you in jail for going outside yet they release the ones already in jail. How many of our civil liberties guaranteed in the Constitution can they abuse...

 

THE SKY IS FALLING! The sky is falling…

The sky is falling! The sky is falling! The current coronavirus pandemic is a life or death situation for many. This is especially true for old over the hill senior citizens like yours truly. The experts say people sixty-five and older are the most...

 

May Not Like Us, But They Damned Well Better Respect Us.

One of our cats must have walked on my alarm clock. When I rolled over and checked the time it said five-thirty so living under the premise that it is better to wake up and pee rather then pee and wake up “Good morning America!” Only when making... Full story

 

Do As We Say, Not As We Do

For anyone that lives North of Roseau it has to be hard to not feel like you have maybe been sacrificed for the good of the city of Roseau. The sheer volume of the water the east and west diversion ditches dump North of town is impressive. When one...

 

Would Rather Die On Their Feet Then Live On Thier Knees

Oofdah! There are a lot of beautiful crops in the fields that are getting less so almost everyday. Anyone that knows anything about production agriculture is well aware that if your fields don’t go into winter ready for spring, it makes for a long...

 

Fishing on Lake of the Woods/Politics

Fishing on Lake of the Woods seems to always be good around Memorial Day. This year is no exception. We buy a license so we can enjoy the privilege of the great sport of fishing. Even with said license we are still a guest of the State of Minnesota...

 

Mother Nature is Large and in Charge

Not to say it has been a long winter, but, I now know all the Walton’s first names and also oldest to youngest and most of their friends and neighbors. The same holds true for the Ingalls, Garveys and Olsons from Little House on the Prairie. After...

 

Deplorables

To the Editor, I see on the news Hillary Clinton refers to Trump supporters as a “Basket of deplorables”. I have hears of people having to live in deplorable conditions, but haven’t heard of millions of people described as “Deplorables”. I...

 

The devil and the deep blue sea

To the Editor, When visiting with acquaintances that just happen to be liberal democrats, it has become clear there is a deeper riftbetween democrats and republicans than probably any other segments of our society. I am a definite conservative, but...

 

Less than 100 days left before it is too late

To the Editor, Honesty, accountability, and integrity are the words CBS uses to describe their views on the news. I fail to see any of the above when they talk politics. When crooked Hillary is on they have a major lovefest and can’t find fault...

 

Politics

To the Editor, Well, there are now only two giant cottonwood trees left of the original five that my grandfather hauled in the trunk of the car from the Missouri Breaks in the early forties. The last one was the biggest and proved true to that old...

 

Scared for our future

To the Editor, Unbelievable! Hillary Clinton sends or receives around one hundred fifty classified emails on her private server and is guilty of no crime. She does not do her job to protect Americans in the U.S. Embassy in Bengazi where four...

 

The Last Great Battle

To the Editor, I lost one of my heroes when Cassius Clay, who was much better known as Mohammad Ali died. His Louisville lip and his quick wit and even quicker hands made him the greatest. He estimated that he had been hit in the head twenty-nine...

Nature

I just finished mowing lawn up at my dad’s. What a difference fifty years makes! I used to mow it with a nineteen inch pushmower with a three and a half horse. Now I use a fifteen foot batwing with a hundred horse tractor on it. It definitely...

 

A Cast of Characters

To the Editor, This election year has got me totally befuddled. What a cast of characters that want to be the big cheese on what probably won’t be the greatest country on earth much longer. One is a professed socialist that is going to make...
