Dedication

This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

"Of Mice & Men" (and also Women)

The "Mouseland" fable originally was written in the 1940's by Clarence Gillis, and then later narrated by the late Tommy Douglas and subsequently made into a slide show presentation.

It was in the late 1960's when I first saw a film of the slide show version, when I was a political science undergraduate student at Frostburg State College in Western Maryland.

It since then has been remade into an animated video version.

Regardless of the politics and Canadian nationality of Tommy Douglas, Mouseland's message rises above fractious and feckless political partisanship, both then and now, with a cry for each and every one of us to stand up and be responsible for our own personal accountability and empowerment.

Click here to watch the video, and decide for yourself if these principles make as much sense to you as they do for me.

Also, pass this along to all of your friends, family, and associates by clicking on the envelope icon at the end of this entry. Even better: Ask them all to go and do likewise!

Regardless of where you live, do your part to support the quest for "Jobs & Prosperity", "Personal Liberty & Family Values", and "Returning Government Back to the People".


Until then, may God bless you all real good!

Working together to Stay Independent,

Larry D. Kump

Semper Fi!

 Retired Marine Colonel Don Douglas, enjoying a belated 73rd birthday breakfast @ "Betty's" restaurant, with Delegate Larry D. Kump and Larry's beloved wife Cheryl. 🤗
   Colonel Douglas served our country for 38 years, as a "Double Ace" fighter jet pilot and with three tours of duty in Vietnam. 🤔
  He currently is a "Toys for Tots" volunteer coordinator, placing over 6,000 toys for local area needy children during each Christmas.😮
  He also is the chief volunteer caretaker for the African-American "Ubilla" cemetery, in which Civil War era slaves also
are interred . 🙏🏿
Colonel Douglas truly is a man of most infinite worth, who embodies the essence of "Semper Fidelis".
  I am honored and humbled to claim Don as my hero and friend. ☺️

A Heartfelt Letter

After a crazily contentious yet productive special session of the West Virginia Legislature, I made the six hour drive back home here to Falling Waters yesterday, and was heart warmed to find the following letter waiting for me in my mailbox:
"Dear Mr. Kump,
Thank you so much for providing copies of the West Virginia Legislature Membership Directory 2019 at our Hedgesville Library.
How I wish that more legislators were as aware of and concerned about their constituents as you are.
I have always believed that each of us has a responsibility to become informed about the issues, our local, state, and federal governments, and our state legislators and congresspersons.
While voting is a right, it is also a privilege and an obligation.
You have provided, at no cost to us, valuable information in a concise, well-organized format.
I hope that more people will pick up a copy and appreciate you having made it readily accessible.
Sincerely,
Linda L. Jones"
