The Face of Privacy in an Online World

With social media reigning supreme, taking in the majority of Internet traffic next to Netflix, I’ve been wondering if these young innovators ever saw their creations becoming what they are today. Do you think Jack Dorsey ever saw Twitter being used as the preferred method of a United States President’s direct communication tool? Or Mark… Continue reading The Face of Privacy in an Online World

Well Regulated – Reloaded

I grow tired of writing about guns in America. And I only seem to have to do it after a tragedy where someone is harmed through an action where a gun was used. Considering how often this actually happens, I’m surprised I get to write about anything else at all. In America, every day, more… Continue reading Well Regulated – Reloaded

It’s not a simple problem so it’s not a simple fix

Emotionally charged imagery and audio, taken out of context, has whipped many into a lather. The parroted phrase of the day is, "children being ripped out of their mother's arms." There has been a sudden surge in media coverage of something that has been taking place for over 40 years, albeit with minor tweaks along… Continue reading It’s not a simple problem so it’s not a simple fix

Meeting With the Bobs

Whenever a tragedy occurs, or when a need is needed, the first thing uttered by my fellow Americans is that government should do something. I’m not sure where this comes from. Perhaps it originated from Roosevelt’s New Deal (which was an overhaul of government responsibilities, turning it into more of a nanny state) and snowballed… Continue reading Meeting With the Bobs

Kathleen Saucier discusses her son’s presidential pardon

It was my pleasure to welcome back to our show, Kathleen Saucier, the mother of Kristian Saucier, who finally, after more than a year and a half of being made a public scapegoat for taking selfies on-board a nuclear submarine, serving time in prison, on house arrest and with a felony prison record, was given… Continue reading Kathleen Saucier discusses her son’s presidential pardon

SOTU 2018 drinking game

The State of the Union is tonight. This will be President Trump's first. Considering 90% of all media stories (print, radio and television) were negative for our 45th president, it's amazing to see how much was accomplished in his first year. The confirmation of Judge Gorsuch, pulling the US out of bad trade deals, opening… Continue reading SOTU 2018 drinking game

What keeps getting left out about the budget breakdown

When you've lived through several modern American presidencies and all of the mid-term battles for Congress, it's easy to hear the same, recycled talking points used over and over again. Perhaps some of the more egregious (and successful) happen when "the government is running out of money." Even that phrase is laughable, given we have… Continue reading What keeps getting left out about the budget breakdown

What does it mean to act presidential?

OMG, he's tweeting again! He called himself a genius. He thinks he's the smartest person in the room. He won't stop poking at Kim Jong Un. He is going to start a war. He is a paranoid idiot who eats McDonald's in bed to avoid the risk of being poisoned. He is incapable of understanding… Continue reading What does it mean to act presidential?

NOprah, It’s Beneath You

So Oprah Winfrey gave an inspirational speech at the 2018 Golden Globe awards. And the crowd went wild. Speculation and encouragement arose to get her to run for president in 2020. Nothing demonstrates how politics works than watching fans of Oprah encourage this to happen. Because what it demonstrates is that if people like you,… Continue reading NOprah, It’s Beneath You

We Already Knew This

Imagine a book coming out, or an essay or one-hour presentation with PowerPoint slides. Imagine the information presented said that everyone around President Barack Obama or George W. Bush or Harry Truman or Theodore Roosevelt or Thomas Jefferson thought these men fools. Imagine the person presenting this information claimed that all the president’s men thought… Continue reading We Already Knew This

Harry Reid’s UFO Hobby – You Paid For It

A secret government UFO program run out of the Pentagon?! This is the kind of news that gets us X-files fans salivating that the truth isn’t quite so far out there but right here. And I couldn’t have timed the release of my latest novel, CHASING DISCLOSURE any better. What marketing! A Pentagon UFO research… Continue reading Harry Reid’s UFO Hobby – You Paid For It

Full Disclosure; or, What I’d Rather Be Doing

It’s been far too long since I contributed some thoughts to this blog. Most of the reason has been due to my final push to get this new novel completed. It’s been two years in the making: One year of intense study and refresher of the subject matter at hand and another year to knit… Continue reading Full Disclosure; or, What I’d Rather Be Doing
