While elk hunting in November of 1988, my fireside
chats with my buddies focused on adjustments I
should make once back at work.
However, my smoke-seasoned plans were soon
rendered meaningless after all staff veterinarians
were offered a 30 percent pay cut to keep our jobs.
I was married with three little ones, had a

Let’s hope so.
Today, even though optimism has replaced
pessimism, the heavily indoctrinated millennials are
still choosing free stuff over freedom.
A Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation
study shows 44 percent of millennials prefer

the American dream, so you best chase it now rather
