McCain Disgraces Greatest Generation

Falling poll numbers prompted desperation.  The McCain camp has been like a rat backed […]

MSNBC Dumbs Down Demographics

Son, The constant harping on polls by demographics is wearing thin. Chris Matthews and Tim Russert have to be two of the worst. The suggestion is that people can only vote for people like themselves.

A Personal Understanding of Racism

Son, I grew up in a segregated America.  My parents would have qualified as third generation hillbillies who came to town to work.  We lived in a mixed race neighborhood in an inner city.  Those were days when a fist fight on the corner was just that – no one pulled out a knife or […]
