AARP Is A Communist Plot To Destroy America!

NFL Dispute – Three Parties: Owners, Players, Public

The NFL Labor dispute is really aggravating.  Such a labor dispute might be none of our business – except we the public are heavily invested in the NFL.  There are times in our history when labor disputes have so directly impacted the public at large that our government has been forced to intervene.  Think of […]

Tea Party Movement Based on Emotion – Not Political Ideology

There is a really sad truth about the Tea Party Movement.  The majority of the protesters are not sophisticated political operatives.  I know many of them personally.  These are people who have lived the good American life – they worked and struggled, they saved some money, their children went to public schools, they drink cheap […]

Guantanamo Bay Cuba and the ACLU

Son, I received the following email encouraging an email or on-line petition.  I added the italics: “January 11, 2008 will mark six years since the first 20 prisoners arrived at Guantánamo Bay Cuba.

The Enigma of Wal-Mart

Son, You and I are of different generations – how obvious is that. What is less obvious is what it means to be of different generations. I am a baby-boomer, you are a nut case child of the seventies. Such is the case with labels. But the cultural influences and differences of our lives are […]

Political endorsement, any value?

Son, There is an old axiom in local politics, “When someone or some group endorses you, you get all of their enemies and none of their friends.” Who knows?  We do know that politicians actively seek endorsements. Readers – what do you think – are endorsements valuable? Dad
