Out With the Old, In With the New

As the New Year is finally upon us, let us take look at some of the major events of 2010 from a Conservative perspective. Of course, the best thing that happened in the past year was the election on November 2.  As you all know by now, the Republican Party picked up 63 seats in […]

Don’t Just Stare At It!

December 30, 2010
Don’t Just Stare At It!

This Christmas, I received an amazing and insidious gift called Apple TV. It’s amazing because it delivers streaming video content to our plasma television wirelessly from our computer’s files or the Internet. It is insidious because I spent all of December 26 in front of the television watching Netflix, You Tube and video from my […]

2011: The Year of a Balanced Budget Amendment?

December 29, 2010

In a little bit more than 48 hours, 2010 will be a thing of the past.  The New Year will be upon us and President Obama is hopefully about halfway through his presidency.  We have the future to look forward to as both Conservatives, Republicans and Americans.  Whether you like it or not, the era […]

Dollar Days May Be Ending Soon

Originally published 11/24/2010 on the Obama White House Diaries… 3X9JAN5JR9SA Don’t be misled about that title.  This article is not promoting sales of contemporary furniture, hot tubs or sundry items.  It’s about the US dollar.  Yesterday, China’s Premier Wen Jiabal and Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin held a ceremony in St. Petersburg.  After taking time […]

One Down and One To Go

One Down and One To Go

Please consider today’s article to be in the format of “A Hollywood Republican” lite.  As I promised a couple of weeks ago there will be no political rhetoric spoken or written by me during the Christmas/New Year season.  I have decided to take a short break to hopefully recharge my batteries. So Christmas is over […]

A Little Christmas Magic

December 24, 2010
A Little Christmas Magic

Yesterday morning I was thinking long and hard about what to write for this post.  I thought of rewriting my article from last year “Twas The Night Before Christmas-Washington Style.”   But I’m not a big fan of re gifting.  Then I thought I’d just post a picture of a big Christmas Tree and wish everyone […]

Today’s Forecast: partially sunny with a 20% chance of terror.

This morning, as with most weekday mornings, I stumble out of bed between 4 AM and 5 AM to perform the daily ritual. Make coffee. Feed Maverick before he wakes Karen up with his alley cat crying, Fire up the laptop. Boot up the Mac. And the question is always the same; what am I […]

Our Kids are “Waiting for Superman”

Our Kids are “Waiting for Superman”

I usually do not use this column to talk about individual motion pictures or to actually recommend one, but the movie discussed herein deserves some of my time and yours.  Last Saturday night I was sifting through my Academy Screeners and nothing much caught my eye.  I had already watched, “The Social Network,”, “The Fighter”, […]
