‘Twas the Night Before Election

‘Twas the night before Election, and all through the land, Everyone was stirring, the rallies were out of hand! The yard signs were planted in the ground with care, In hopes that their candidate would win the big chair! “Our guys behind, we must work harder!”, they all said, While visions of winning danced in their heads. With mamma with her walk-book and I with my walk app Had just hunkered down for neighborhood walking…

To VP or Not to VP?

The crowds.  The cheers.  The chants of USA and “Trump, Trump, Trump!”  All that and more went into the latest Donald Trump rally.  But this time, the speculation of will he or won’t he announce his Vice Presidential pick was palpable in the air. Those “in-the-know” said not tonight for the best of reasons.  And of course, they were right.  But the buzz, the talk, the rumors in the community by average Hoosiers and on the…

The Party’s Over

They said, “This year Indiana counts in the primary”.  They said, “The future of the Republican Party will be decided by Indiana”.  They said, “All eyes are on Indiana”.  They said a lot of things.  Now, that the primary spotlight is off, they are quiet.  On to the next big thing. From the local and state races to the seats in DC, to the presidential nominee, this past election season was a sight to behold.…

Homeschoolers Rule the Day

Babies in strollers, boys in dress shirts, girls in long skirts below the knees, Dad’s with Mom’s, Mom’s with Dad’s, families with 3, 4 or more kids all walking around the State House.  What was going on?  January 26th was the annual Home School Day at the State Capitol.  Each year the event has been growing, and this year’s attendance was the most yet!

Prayer at the State House

The 12th Annual Statehouse Prayer Service was this week.  Yes, 12 years of elected officials, Republicans and Democrats, clergy, community and business leaders, state employees, citizens, Home Schoolers, and more came together inside the Statehouse for the single purpose of corporate prayer.  How’s that for separation of Church and State? Statehouse Chaplain Matthew Barnes continues to fill the room.  Having attended for the past several years, this may have been the largest turnout yet. Prayers were…

Girls Just Want To Speak

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is bringing a lawsuit against the Brownsburg Community School Corporation (BCSC) on behalf of  Tina Gracey and Brenda Farnsworth.  Tina and Brenda are cafeteria workers that posted their opinions on Facebook.  Right now you are saying, I do not live in Brownsburg, have no kids in that school system, and may not be a big fan of the ACLU.  Why should I care? I write this for you.  Keep reading. Remember…

The Presidential Race and Showing Swine at the Fair

The Hendricks County 4H Fair ended recently.  Being the proud (and still amazed) parent whose children showed pigs for the first time, I learned what it takes to show swine. Surprisingly, it reminded me of politics.  Showing swine is a lot like the current race for the Presidency. There was a great deal of noise from the pigs in the arena.  The exhibitors (like candidates) showed palpable intensity, they were vying for position, trying their best to…

A Flag By Any Other Name

The Confederate Flag that flew over the South Carolina State House is now down.  The flag has moved to the Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum, close to the State House. And the world keeps on spinning. With the removal of the flag, I can actually feel the axis of our “politically correct” world tilt a little bit more.  It has been tilting more and more in a direction, which if not checked, will reorient the free speech…

Why RFRA Scares Me

This past week the Social Media outcry, blogs, articles, and even news talk shows on Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) reminded me of episodes from the 1960’s Batman: Pow!  Blamm!  Whack!  KAPOW!  Lots of left jabs, and lots of right blocks.  I expect to see some Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) style action this week! But why such extreme language?  Why all the vile accusations?  Why such blatant hatred leveled against RFRA supporters?  More liberal-leaning voices say this is a green-light for…

Gentlemen, Start Your Session!

Your state government is now open for business.  Let the legislating work begin!  Along with the committees, hearings, filings, posturing, bickering, speeches, us vs. them, sound bites, and press coverage ad nauseam begin. The 2015 Indiana General Assembly session opened this past Tuesday.  There is an excitement in the air because it is new and fresh.  Freshman legislators have that look of bewilderment and excitement in their eyes.  But the small stream of sweat slowly sliding…
