John McCain served his country, but not recently

John McCain is a war hero.  A genuine war hero.  He served his country with honor and went above and beyond the call.  He should be admired for his military service.  He was simply incredible and has more intestinal fortitude than I will ever have. That does not mean he is right on every political…

An open letter to @GlennBeck

Dear Glenn, You are disappointed in Ted Cruz.  You apologized to your audience for believing in Mr. Cruz.   You say he let you down is because he turned out to be just another politician.  I cannot figure out why you thought he was anything other than a politician. Politicians are all the same in…

Donald Trump could be elected because of the death of serious “News”

In the last 25 years or so, we have seen the death of “The News” as we knew it.  We now watch and listen to opinionated “infotainment,” and most people listen mostly to the people they agree with. In today’s environment, the “News” has to be profitable.  In the old days, the three TV networks…

Donald Trump will let conservatives down

At a time where politicians will say anything to get elected, Donald trump has caught the attention of many conservatives who are hungry for a straight talking, nonpolitical, business man.  Every other politician seems to be out for themselves and only themselves.  Politicians use the public office to get name recognition, then monetize that recognition…

Raising the minimum wage would be counter productive

If you watched the State of the Union Address tonight, you heard President Obama suggest that we should raise the minimum wage to $9 per hour. His argument is that anyone who work a full time job should not live in poverty. I’m sure he feels that it is a “right” for anyone who works…

What is wrong with John Kerry’s face?

Did you see John Kerry’s speech on his first day as Secretary of State?  What happened to his mouth?  Is it botox?  Plastic surgery?  Collagen injections? I have no idea, but he looks funny. Watch the video above and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

The government should put taxes on sale!

There is so much talk these days about raising taxes.  Everyone wants to believe that all we need to do is raise taxes on rich people because they’re not “paying their fair share.”  Rubbish.  The rich already pay the highest rate, and largest share.  We can argue that until the cows come home but that…

Gingrich and Santorum, it’s all about them

Mitt Romney has won the most delegates so far, but has yet to secure the nomination of his party.  The conservative vote is split between Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.  If Santorum and Gingrich combined their vote totals in each election, they would easily win over Mitt Romney.  Given the fact that the Republican Convention…

Politicians are full of themselves

All politicians say the same things don’t they? “I’ve always put the people first,” or “I’ll look out for your interests and fight the special interests.” You can go back decades and look at almost any political race and the conversation is the same. The truth is that politicians are simply out for themselves. It’s…

Jack Kemp – What a Good Guy

Jack Kemp was such a great guy that it’s hard to find anyone who didn’t like him. You can find people who argued with him, but everyone liked Jack Kemp. He was just a nice guy. I didn’t know Mr. Kemp, but I did share an elevator with him once in Orlando. He was speaking…
