By Robert L. Huffstutter
I have always been fond of dogs and cats. To be brief, I have always loved and respected most all animals.
Likewise, most of my friends love and respect animals, so right off, we share this common bond. Whenever we get together for coffee and find the weather too boring to discuss, we discuss politics and religion, two subjects guaranteed to liven aged spirits and oil the joints of ancient bones.
At this point in time, when political comments can be so outspoken and intense that friendships can be ruined by facial expressions suggesting approval or disapproval of one or the other candidate, a few of us have vowed to talk about old dogs or our grandchildren in order to preserve the Republic.

About Me

My photo
My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
