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

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

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

Strong, admirable and unflappable and the Left hates her

It's been awhile since I've had the chance to put my thoughts down on current events. I spend more time on Twitter of late because I have not had the free time I would like to write more. I know, excuses, excuses. Over the last few weeks, I considered writing (again) about why President Trump… Continue reading Strong, admirable and unflappable and the Left hates her

Trendy protests lead to choice between patriotism or NFL

Well, we thought we knew what all the kneeling was about. I mean, we were told it was about their First Amendment right to protest injustice, police violence and the unfairness experienced by some in our country. We were told it's a quiet display to show solidarity with those who have suffered social inequities. But,… Continue reading Trendy protests lead to choice between patriotism or NFL

Sods of Plastic

  You thinking what I’m thinking? Or better yet, you thinking what I concluded back in 1996? What exactly does the GOP stand for? Healthcare has been their issue throughout the Obama Administration. They attempted to repeal it sixty times while he was in office. Mostly this was a dog and pony because they knew… Continue reading Sods of Plastic
