Undeniably Right

Mike Mustang

I believe what I say and believe I am right. Thus, the title of my column, Undeniably Right. Take it as you will, that I'm a conservative or I have a huge ego and believe I am always correct. Sometimes those things overlap, sometimes not.

This week I had two separate conversations through social media, which appears to be the way we communicate with people more and more often these days. It brought up some very interesting topics and a bit of frustration as well. But I think there is a lesson to be learned and a little bit of encouragement that should be meted out.

On this Friday after Thanksgiving there are so many thoughts running through my head making it difficult to decide upon a topic for this week's column. That's a sign that we should have another random thoughts and observations column, but I have a sneaky suspicion that it will end up with a general theme more than in the past.

Sidney Powell filed a lawsuit making specific allegations related to the claims of election fraud that she has been making for the past couple of weeks. It is about time. I had opined on last week's radio show that this could be another instance of big talk and no action. Now we have to put our faith in the judicial system, which is hard to do, but there is hope that the Supreme Court will uphold the rule of law. If you want to know more specifics tune into the radio show tomorrow at 9 AM on 92.9 FM.

I have to admit that there is a part of me getting tired of writing and talking about the same issues over and over and over. So this week I think I'll stick with some random observations and thoughts so that I can recharge my batteries a little bit by doing something different. Besides we haven't done one of these for a long time.

I always find it a little bit insulting when a cashier checks the bill I gave her or him to see if it is counterfeit or legitimate. If I was counterfeiting something I wouldn't be shopping at the Dollar Tree.

I find it interesting that the same people who believe most of us cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication are the same ones that believe we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication plus the cost of a bureaucracy to administer the program.
