During a previous life, I managed stores for the F.W. Woolworth Company. One day I got, "promoted," to a store where the previous manager had been fired. His offense was that he was basically, "Bozo the Clown." The Regional Director who put me into the store came to visit me about a week into my tenure there, and beat the living daylights out of me. He knew that the problems that I faced there were not of my doing, and he knew further that it was going to take longer than a…Continue
Here’s what I hear from the “older people”. “Our young people today are lost.” Our young people today just don’t care.” “Our young people today are brainwashed.” Yet, consider…Continue
The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines “pragmatism” as follows: “a reasonable and logical way of doing things or of thinking about problems that is based on dealing with specific situations instead of on ideas and theories.”
Is that ringing a bell with anyone? Does it sound like the GOP Establishment? I would submit that “pragmatism”, as defined here, is what they are about entirely in…Continue
SESSIONS DEMANDS SEBELIUS TESTIFY BEFORE BUDGET PANEL
Senate Budget Committee ranking member Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) asked his Democratic counterpart, Chairwoman Patty Murray (Wash.), to request that Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius…Continue
The Internet Sales Tax proposal, backed by (often-rightfully) dying brick-and-mortar establishments and bloated state governments, will force any individual or business who sells a product online to collect sales taxes in any jurisdiction. There are 9,600 state and local systems of taxation which any individual who wishes to sell a product online will have to comprehend, and the consumers of online products will…Continue

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is over after three days of speakers and seminars. It drew a huge crowd of mostly younger voters, many drawn from the Young Republicans for Freedom who, in 1973, teamed with the American Conservative Union for the first conference. Over the years roughly half of those attending have been of college age.
The crowd this year was so large, estimated to be between 10,000 and 11,000, that no hotel…Continue
Seems as if a senseless question doesn’t it. Why ask it you may ask? Well it’s the closest question that perhaps our society can answer to understand the scenario of the great ‘BULL’ market that our stock market is showing.
If we read the press, listen to the marvelous recovery of Keynesian communism of monetary and fiscal debauchery of our currency and wealth, everything is going gangbusters. The…Continue
I've given up hope that the people can clean up the political and judicial corruption in Washington, D.C. But we all have to wake up and take the one other path that is available to us...ArticleV of our Constitution. The Founding Fathers realized at the last minute that the great majority of politicians will become corrupt, no matter how idealistic they start out. Please buy (or get at the library) Mark Levin's book "The Liberty…Continue

Democrat Senator Kay Hagan recently launched her campaign for re-election, and tried to hide from the lies she told the American people about ObamaCare:…
Watching this past weeks CPAC convention was entertaining, at the very least!
Without question, there are some passionate people in America. And, it's about time! What was most encouraging was their stressed need to "reduce the size, scope and cost of government." The next question is, "how do we win elections?"
This weeks post introduces a novel concept that many will not like. The idea, however, is about winning elections. Conservatives have a lot going for them at this…Continue
Refugees from Values
I met a liberal on the street.
I didn’t know which direction he was walking.
Either did he.
He didn’t know black from white,
Corner from corner.
Everything was gray.
It was a gray day for me.
I had not thought that mankind could become
He called his life style progressive

THE CURE FOR LOIS LERNER SYNDROME
...In this case, the “genie” is the non-citizen and elder brother of Barack Obama.
Ms. Lerner has granted him the very same privileges that she selectively denied others who opposed the White House policies.
The scandal of Lois Lerner granting Malik Obama – who…Continue
Those who say they have a conservative bent, not just an American bent, just had their 2014 CPAC conference. Oh, it was exciting; the words patronized the mantra of the dogmatic identifiers of absolute insanity we hear on a continuum. The flat tax, the future must be bright, we can’t place the burden of debt on our nation’s progeny, and the list went on and on. Ted Cruz hit on the wonder of this nation, but didn’t supply the roadmap of the errors…Continue
The “Internet” was technically “spawned” in 1990 from the parentage of the then ancient (20 year old) ARPANET and the needs of a unusually creative researcher in Geneva Switzerland. Coincidently, that was the year that I launched my first software company.
I was never enamored with the Internet as such because of my lifelong background in the Military Intelligence career field and my technical knowledge…Continue
It’s not hard to tell that there is a power struggle that is going on between Obama and Vladimir Putin, and the world has taken notice. There has been a strange sort of respect going on for a communist dictator who would otherwise be trashed in the eyes of free Americans. Could it be that Americans think so little of Obama, that a Dictator could win their…Continue
