Look at what the clown is tweeting now — and that’s just why he does it

There has been an idea been rolling around in my head for the last few weeks. With each announcement of another cabinet position for President-elect Trump's team, I find my suppositions being confirmed. He is putting some of the best, brightest and most successful people in positions around him. These are not academicians, coming down from… Continue reading Look at what the clown is tweeting now — and that’s just why he does it

Another #SOTUdrinkinggame2016

The State of the Union is tomorrow. This will be President Obama's last of his presidency. Because we are heading into a massive election year, both nationally and locally, it's likely the President won't spend a lot of time (at least, not to us) on new policies or initiatives. He's already enacted volumes of executive… Continue reading Another #SOTUdrinkinggame2016

Believing lies and helping spread them; or, What it means to be liberal

Liberals love being lied to. They enjoy being manipulated and played like puppets by the mainstream media, race-baiters and the leadership in the Democrat party.

But, above all, they will worship the strongest thing in the world." -- G.K. Chesterton "Well, you've touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises.

Culture of yes-men do what is expected of them

I had a pleasant conversation recently with a business leader about my time in the Navy and my career since then.  It started off innocently enough.  We'd gone out to eat together along with our wives and then decided to continue the evening at their home.  We settled in and grabbed a drink.  Our wives went into… Continue reading Culture of yes-men do what is expected of them

It’s time to remember we are a Republic

As a complement to the piece I wrote last week regarding Chick-fil-A, I wanted to delve into an area that wasn't specifically mentioned prior.  This area deals with the difference between the actions a private citizen is free, and protected by the Constitution, to undertake versus the actions of our political leaders, who, as still presumed… Continue reading It’s time to remember we are a Republic
