Jess Payne column

Jess Payne

Jess Payne, 48, owns a real estate appraisal firm. He is very active in business, including--but not limited to--real estate dealings and investments. As he grew up on a farm, his parents instilled in him the value and lessons of hard work, responsibility, and trusting in a higher power. He attended a private college studying theology and psychology and earning a B.S. degree. The graduate school saw potential and offered him a much sought-after internship in their Masters program. During the two years he was in the program, Mr. Payne became involved in counseling, providing day and weekend seminars around the northwest, and taught classes at the college level.

Restless and unfulfilled, he turned to a period of roaming, mingling, and interacting with all types of people in all kinds of places. Mr Payne says: "Feeling the need for a more well-rounded education and experience, I converted to liberalism, but after a few years I was even emptier than before. Age, but mostly a good wife, brought me balance and fulfillment. I have studied and worked harder than ever and have achieved a good life, which gives me the time to invest in my other true love: religious, social, and political analysis, diologue, and commentary. I believe we are in a time of tremendous change, peril, and opportunity. The fight in our country for political control at any cost (primarily our freedom is at stake) is real and staggering. All of us should do everything we can to be involved in the Wake Up Call!"

Free speech?
Jess Payne
April 8, 2003

If free speech is so valued in America, why are so many politicians, judges, attorneys, ministers, and citizens so intent on restricting it? There are many . . .

Capitalism and the antiwar crowd
