The ancient Romans kept citizens at bay by offering, “Bread and Circus.” They handed out food to people and provided constant entertainment to keep them so occupied that they would not look closely at the government that was oppressing them. Sound familiar? Yes, that history is repeating itself in America. OUR GUEST COLUMNIST RON EWART who has already been a hit with our readers, brings in his analysis from the point of someone in Rural America. He nails the issue of “Buying Votes.”

LOS ANGELES,California (5/3/14—The most vilified person on the planet at this moment is Donald Sterling, a very rich man who has been the owner of the L.A.Clippers Basketball Team. The canons have been firing at him since racist comments made by him to his (extra marital) girl friend during a telephone call was released to the media who ran with it. The furor this has caused over a careless comment was way overblown.

GUEST COLUMNIST COACH DAVE DAUBENMIRE is someone you can trust to tell it like it is with no waffling or appeasement. Tackling the ‘RACE BARKERS’ he puts a sensible observation of this rising phenomenon beginning with the L.A. Clippers flap regarding team owner, Donald Sterling. How refreshing to read the truth of the issues society faces. You may remember this coach, who was sued by the ACLU for leading his team in prayer before a game. Coach Dave is not one to be intimidated. Instead he faced the ACLU front and center, toe to toe for the next two years, refusing to surrender his 1st Amendment rights until the ACLU relented and offered Coach Dave an out-of-court settlement. That, dear readers, is what it takes.

Our GUEST COLUMNIST, Don Huntington, is a most colorful writer and speaker who re-discovered The Hokey Pokey dance. You remember the Hokey Pokey, where you put your right side in, and your right side out…then the left sides, the hands and feet working up to “put your whole self in put your whole self out. put your whole self in and shake it all about.” Mr. Huntington, editor of 110% Magazine in Northern California, adopted his motivation speeches into “Putting Your Whole Self In,” which is the title for his charming book. Proverbs tell us that, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.” Our Guest is very much a tonic as he gives his views on laughter.
