Jim Walton CNN

The head of CNN, Jim Walton, said goodbye as CNN continued its decline in the ratings war.  CNN was once the leading light of cable news but FOX has long passed CNN and now MSNBC is running ahead as well.  CNN’s present problems are the result of many factors swirling around at once.   It runs […]

Hypocrisy 101: Obama and Chick-fil-A

July 30, 2012
Chickfila Logo

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Chick-fil-A is under venomous attack by many members of the Democrat Party fueled by the LGBT community.  They accuse the nation’s second largest fast food chain of being anti-gay (as opposed to how they describe themselves… “pro-traditional family”). Frankly, I could care less whether a […]

Gearing Up

There is a Limit to What Government Can Do

July 28, 2012
Hoover's failure to follow Harding, led to the Great Depression

What can a President do for the economy?  My own theory begins with the idea that government’s positive effect upon the economy is minimal but bad government policies could do devastating damage to an economy.   I have written on why there was no depression in the 1920’s.  The answer was simple; Warren G Harding rejected […]

A Defining Moment

July 28, 2012

Every campaign has its defining moments.  In 1984, it may have been when President Reagan made the famous statement about the “youth” of Walter Mondale in one of the debates.  In 1992, It was Bill Clinton’s use of President Bush’s statement about “no new taxes.”  And, in 2004, it was probably the “Swift Boat” commercials […]

Michael Moore Syndrome: Bowling for Aurora

July 27, 2012
Hollywood Hypocrisy

And on 7/20/12 the President ordered all flags to fly at half-mast, a national sign of mourning, for five days. As kind, thoughtful and considerate as it was, pulling the political “attack ads” for these five days, out of mourning and respect, this really says it all about our culture, that being we know what […]

American Energy Means Recovery

July 26, 2012
American Lights Up the Night

There is widespread consensus that America needs to become energy independent. America’s ever growing dependence on foreign energy puts her at ever-greater risk in a world that is increasingly unstable. Given the current political upheavals in the Middle East, this reality is slapping America in the face with increasing costs at the pump, which are […]

Veep sweepstakes

Governor of Minnesota

Rule number one in selecting a Vice-President, the Vice-President will not win you an election; that is the job for the guy on the top of the ticket.   The Vice-President doesn’t have to be charismatic; just solid.  Charismatic helps and may even get a few extra votes but in the end, the guy on […]
