It is tempting to dismiss the new Texas abortion law as just another quirky Texas thing, like having more than five times more executions than any other state or making sure there’s a loaded gun in every home.

Jim Hoffmeyer makes some good points in his Independent Perspective (August 20), but I think his arguments don’t serve to advance one of the most fundamental elements of America, from its inception, that we are a nation defined by our differences of opinion, by our willingness to speak up fo…

Hypocrisy is one of those terms that implies a negative personality trait. Being a politician and a hypocrite is often one in the same. Hypocrisy is the pretense of virtue, contrary to their real character. Lots of words are related: fraud, deception, dishonesty, lie, duplicity etc. The hypo…

So-called “red flag” laws were all the rage a couple years ago. These are laws designed to remove weapons from unstable people who might otherwise use those weapons to harm themselves or others. Even Donald Trump championed the concept. In 2019, he said states should adopt such measures to “…

In my last submission (August 20th), I ended with a quote from Benjamin Franklin about beer.  Although this is a quote that can be found in many places, it may not be true.  After my submission, I found something that questions whether he actually ever said that.  So, I might have been wrong…

“There’s no way to end a war and make it look like you’re winning a war.” USA Today’s David Rothkopf so describes the recent dilemma of unrealistic expectations meeting on-the-ground realities in Afghanistan. President Biden has suffered harsh criticism from both the right and the left for h…

As we watch Biden’s Afghanistan debacle before our eyes, the fake news organizations can no longer ignore the failures of this Administration. MSNBC/CNN/Hill, none known as reliable sources, are criticizing Pres Biden. For more than 12 months, they chose to not report honestly on Biden nor h…

During an August 3rd County Commissioner meeting, Commissioner Amy Mitchell and her like-minded posse objected to an amendment to the Dominion Voting Systems professional services agreement for Park County. Ms. Mitchell said she lacked faith in the system and its personnel. The Flume reporte…

If you’re wondering why I’m talking about the Ford Pinto, it’s because we’re seeing that same behavior in today’s Republican Party. It’s all about costs and benefits.

Although I have made it clear that I will never vote for any Republican that remains a Trump supporter, I want to make it clear that I do not like some things that the Democratic Party continues to push.  For example, the left wing of the Democratic Party is pushing hard for the $3.5 bill ca…

Well, she’s at it again. Jena Griswold, our current Secretary of State, a couple months ago publicly stated that Colorado’s election system was the “gold standard” of the entire country. She then followed that up by signing an order prohibiting any audits of election equipment by third parti…

I managed a public swimming pool in Denver when I was going to college, and, after I returned from the Army more years ago than I’ll admit to. Summer after summer, there were always a few yahoos who’d complain about one thing or another, declaring they were taxpayers, as if that meant someth…

On the heels of testimony by former acting attorney general Jeffrey A. Rosen before the Senate Judiciary Committee, former president Trump hit the Fox News channel to try to turn the conversation back to an attack on President Joe Biden’s handling of the coronavirus.

Developing appropriate topics for the Republican Perspective is great experience. This writer has delved into issues with an eye as what is important to Park County and Colorado especially. One must realize that our little county in central Colorado has little influence in Washington. Our ef…

Let me start with something positive.  Did everyone enjoy as much as I did the pictures in the front page of the Flume on July 23rd?  I am referring to the picture of the little girl at the Park County Fair and the picture of three generations of mares.  Pictures like that make me smile and …

I spent over 40 years in the military. Back in the 70s and 80s we had a common expression in the service. “I may not agree with what you say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” I don’t think that attitude exists in our government any longer.

After ignoring doctors and medical science for a year and a half, most Republican leaders are finally telling people to get vaccinated.  Representative Lauren Boebert, who prefers public grandstanding over essential public service, is one notable exception to this GOP appeal for public safety.
