Why Donald Sterling is Important

May 6th, 2014 | By

Over a week has passed since Donald Sterling’s private conversation with his girlfriend surfaced, and the obsession and coverage continues as he was the featured story on the front page of the LA Times this past Sunday. Wall to wall coverage, yet, Sterling’s racism barely impacts any of our lives. It’s not like Sterling was

Federalism – The Great Compromise

Dec 2nd, 2012 | By

This note is not intended to delegitimize President Obama’s victory or comment on the quality of the presidential candidates’ 2012 election results. The purpose in using the results of the election is to illustrate just how divided this country is and why the current conversation regarding political compromise at the national level misses the point.

California Asks for a Taxpayer-Funded Bailout

Nov 5th, 2012 | By

After being so profligate with its spending that it managed to outspend the revenue taken in during both the “dot com” boom and the recent real estate boom, California now wants a bailout from its taxpayers in the form of a tax hike via Proposition 30. Voting “yes” on Prop 30 is nothing more than

Barack Obama did not Inherit a Recession

Oct 1st, 2012 | By

Contrary to what you hear from the Obama campaign and most news reports, President Barack Obama did NOT inherit a recession. When Obama became president, America was in the middle of a recession. But saying he inherited it would mean that he had nothing to do with it. Obama supported the policies that led to

A Question for Warren Buffett: is Murder Wrong Only Because it’s Illegal

Sep 21st, 2012 | By

You would think so if you used the logic the rich Left applies to income taxes. Rich left-wingers like Warren Buffett, wealthy beyond the dreams of the 99.999%, have come out strongly against so-called “low taxes” on the rich. They frame it as a matter of common decency, a moral obligation. The Republicans in the

Romney and the 47%

Sep 20th, 2012 | By

A video of comments Mitt Romney made at a fundraiser in May, 2012, have surfaced and caused a media firestorm. I’m not surprised by what Romney said – I wish he would make dependency on government a much larger part of his campaign. I also wish he would spend more time talking about the corporate

Jul 10th, 2012 | By

The solution to our illegal immigration problem is to have common sense immigration laws and enforce them. America does neither. To find the solution to the problem, you have to first understand the root of the problem. Why do we have over 10 million illegal immigrants here? There are many reasons, but what sums them

The Lie About Laying off Teachers, Police and Fire Fighters

May 25th, 2012 | By

Every time there’s a state budget shortfall, we are told that if we don’t raise taxes prisoners will be released into the public, police officers and fire fighters must be laid off, and education funding will be slashed (which would include laying off teachers). President Obama and Vice President Biden sing the same song, too,

Who Owns the Money You Earn and Union Gouging

Apr 5th, 2012 | By

When you work, you get paid. Who owns that pay you just earned? President Barack Obama gave a speech recently at Northern Virginia Community College where he told us who he thinks owns what we earn… With all of the media attention to Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama’s hot microphone with

A Fairness Quiz, Volunteers and Retiring at 50

Mar 14th, 2012 | By

With the likes of President Barack Obama, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi and on and on ranting about paying one’s “fair share,” are they ever asked any questions about the way things really work in America? They need to be challenged, because the false picture they paint of America is nonsense… Volunteers all over America are
