I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here. But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is changing for the worse. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, no matter how much I pray, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life--so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind! You can't justify this insanity: If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. Somehow it’s UN-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good. It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote. People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves. People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees. Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated. Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang member or terrorist who jumps the southern fence is welcome. $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not. If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free. If you cheat in an election nothing happens to you, but if you point out the mathematical errors of that election you are a conspiracy theorist & disdained. People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President. We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan for us. Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now. Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of their rights. And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?! Nothing makes sense anymore - no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it's racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is okay! Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, it's taking on water, and is sinking fast. We Americans are drowning. Speak up while you still have breath and a voice for soon you will have neither if you don't!

Dear Editor, I am writing you today with my US Army hat on. My father Enlisted into The Royal Canadian Army and fought as an Infantry Officer in Korea. I enlisted as a Physical Therapist Assistant but was trained as a Combat Medic before my PT training. My specialty was The Burn Unit at Ft. Riley KS. Though I was never “In Country”, I took care of a multitude of solders. Many that would never be the same. My ending time is service was Feb. 1975. Two months before The Fall of Saigon. I have stayed in touch with solders that made the military a career. Most fought in Iraq before retiring. My son-in-law is a highly decorated Marine Infantry man that spent multiple tours in Iraq and other places in the middle east. There are two things I want you to take from this short story. First a solder, sailor, or fly-boy has no need for Critical Race Theory. Our needs are to be taught to stay alive, work well with our brothers and sisters to stay alive and listen to our Military Leaders not politicians to win a war, pack up and come home. We did not join the military to build schools, grocery stores, or gas stations. And second, we joined the military to protect our home-land and WIN. It has been more than 75 years since we have won a war. The American tax payer has been charged billions of dollars to have Military that can’t seem to win a war but can have its men and woman be maimed, killed or come home never to be the same.

7 Aug. 21 Last week Jan & I traveled to Alamo TN. The Crockett County Seat for the Crockett County GOP meeting. Crockett County was formed in 1871 from portions of Haywood, Madison, Dyer and Gibson counties. It is named in honor of David Crockett (1786–1836), frontier humorist, soldier, Tennessee state legislator and U.S. congressman. As of the 2010 census, the population was 14,586. The county courthouse was completed in 1874. The meeting was in one of the court rooms. The wood work was astounding. We met up with Pat Riley and Gaye Overcast from Gibson County. Here again GOP leaders going to different County meetings. This is what I’m talking about when I say we can’t do it alone. There is strength in numbers. Andy Cole is another great GOP Chair. Jan spoke with him before the meeting. He is also Vice-Chair of the Young Republicans. We think that is where his heart is as he mentioned if he ever got the Chair of The Young Republicans, he would resign the County GOP position and put all his efforts into The Young Republicans. As Republicans we should celebrate folks like him. He is the face of our future. State Rep Chris Hurt spoke at the meeting. He is Vice Chair, Education Administration Committee in Nashville. He has lots of concern (as we all should) over our children virtually missing a whole year of school. He spoke of CRT and how the Legislators passed a bill to outlaw it in TN schools without naming as such. He said they would only change the name if they used it. He is quite impressive. In my eyes, another Conservative Republican. Cyril Ostiguy Carroll County GOP Chair

July 12 2021 Jan and I made the trek to Trenton in Gibson County last night to attend the Gibson County GOP meeting. The first thing we did was to drive around the Square “a couple of times”. We couldn’t believe the beautiful Court House they have. There was a bit of scaffolding around the clock tower but it didn’t take away the majesty of the building. It was built around 1899 with multi color bricks in the Victorian Style. We have been to a few counties that have replaced their original Court Houses in the 60s and 70s. It is my belief they have removed major piece of their history. The GOP meeting was in the Teapot Room about a block down the road from the Court House. It’s called The Teapot room because of the rare collection of Porcelain Veilleuses inside. It will about take your breath away. The meeting had at least 40 folks. There were representatives from US Senator Haggerty and US Rep Kustoff’s office, the District DA as well as TN Rep Curtis Halford. Joni Bryan did a presentation about the 917 Society. She is passionate for her cause, which is getting teachers in middle school to teach The Constitution. If you haven’t had the opportunity of listening to her speak, go online to the 917 Society and have her come to your GOP meeting. Also become a member. Dwight Reasons, the Chairman of the Election Commission spoke about the county voting machines and the assurance of validation of the vote in Gibson County. Steve Hilton announced his candidacy for County Mayor under the Republican banner. I stuck around and spoke with him for a while. My first impression is he is a strong conservative with good supervisory skills. Once again, we believe we have found another County with a Strong, Conservative Republican Party. Keep up the good fight. Always remember, there are more of us than of them.

Tuesday Jan and I had the opportunity to go to The Decatur Republican Party meeting. Holy mackerel, there was between 60 to 70 folks there. We met Senator Page Walley, numerous Judicial Candidates, and Decatur County’s latest Republican Chairman, Andrew Sparks. What we saw was another Conservative County. This fills my heart with encouragement. Another candidate for TN Coalition of Counties. Think about this, there is more than just your County. Grab a member or two and go to other County Meetings. Do some networking, meet the folks. And most of all give encouragement. When we have guests at our meetings it is uplifting and gives us optimism that WE ARE NOT ALONE!

I hope all had a great 4th. Around these parts folks spent a ton of cash on fireworks. With the rarity of ammunition, I can see the need for some wiz, bang, boom. Late last month we had a large family reunion in SC. We leased a huge water front home. The grandchildren ages ranged from 6 to 15 years old. For the vast majority of the time the younger kids watched Nickelodeon or The Disney channel while playing games on there hand-held machines. I could not believe what I was seeing on the TV. The trash they are feeding our children and grandchildren is appalling. I’m sure parents use the TV to babysit their children but they should sit down and watch it themselves. I’m afraid I’m turning into my parents. As a kid I watched Saturday morning cartoons and may be a ½ hr. after school. TV was new to me so I had other things to do, like go outside and play with my friends. The violence I remember was seeing the coyote fall off the cliff and exploding down at the valley below. After the first week and all the kids up-stairs I got to watch Tucker. Our 15-year-old grand-daughter came down the stairs. As soon as she saw Fox News was on the TV she went back up the stairs and didn’t speak to us for the rest of the gathering. Jan asked her at the end of our stay “what was wrong?) Her response was “her teachers have told Fox News is bad and the people who watch it.” It is my opinion Teachers aren’t teaching our children how to think but what to think. We as Republicans need to fight back, not by violence but with truth and reverence. We need to teach our children and grandchildren to be to be like this kid: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/07/video-high-school-student-slams-school-boards-frontpage-editors/ On Thursday Jan and I were invited to speak at The Rhea (pronounced Ray) County Republican Party meeting. A small, beautiful County between Knoxville and Chattanooga. We believe we have another exceptional county that would be eligible for The Conservative Coalition. In their agenda was a resolution to make The County School Board partisan and the same with County Commissioners. They are doing all the right things. We spoke briefly of the Coalition but mostly about how we are trying to grow membership and excitement in the Republican Party in Carroll County. Evidently, we are making waves in our County. We had a lot of movers and shakers at our June meeting. And it was standing room only.
