- I believe alternative opinions to be beneficial; I can agree to disagree and understand my opinion may not be the majority one. Who knows maybe your thought will help me reinforce, modify or change my own completely.
Thank you in advance and I hope you enjoy reading all or some of my thoughts.

John Stewart asking the question placed emphasis on the word “optimal” when asking the question to the President. I am sure that is why Pres. Obama also emphasized “optimal” in his response. So this is being spun out of context.
Since the last Presi… Read full post »
I am a man written about women’s “unequal pay” in the workplace… this should turn out good for me, what do you think? Full disclosure, I am not a woman and believe there are equality issues still to this day. If you feel discriminated against because of y… Read full post »
A glimmer of hope has been slowly creeping to the top story from an unexpected place; Pakistan. You see, freedom is not only fought for by soldiers wearing a uniform, it can have many forms and can come from anyone at any age of any sex. The freedom of the… Read full post »
The American People deserve an answer to...
When, word was received that an attack had happened on the Libyan embassy (consulate), how soon do you think the President, Vice President and Sec. of State were notified? I would think within an hour at most. I am sure all three… Read full post »
Vice President Biden may have cost Pres. Obama a second term. I know there have been many pieces written since the vice presidential debate but I do not think an independent voter has broken it down like this. I believe the Vice President may have caused too big… Read full post »
Every election year Social Security is a major issue. I cannot help but wonder why. The solution(s) are very simple and should be put to the people for vote and passed in congress.If you are in favor of government taking your hard earned money (aka Social Security), with a promise of… Read full post »
The State Department paints a completely different picture of the events that happened at Libya. I don’t know about you, but I was picturing a protest that terrorist seized the opportunity to create a “spectacular” event and got lucky; boy was I wrong. After listening to and reading… Read full post »
Do you know the REST OF THE STORY?
Look I have to admit, I haven’t, until recently (over the weekend) listened to the entire video of Mitt Romney and the “47% reference”. I should not be surprised about the media but, in my opinion,… Read full post »
YAHOO Sports soccer story headline: “Miroslav Klose scores with his hand, admits it to ref so the goal is disallowed”. If we all lie, deceive, cheat or steal then the world is a very dark place and change or moving forward can never happen. It was nice to read a… Read full post »
Ok, stop the press!
No this is not true, but what if?
This would be a complete game changer. It would completely be a sweep of all 50 states. I am… Read full post »
Is this what all the hype is about, the coming Zombie Apocalypse?
There is a movement today in America that believes it is “un-American” to start and own a successful business. These Americans must have been given a full lobotomy because they blindly follow… Read full post »
I often hear numbers being thrown around on who gives more or less to charity in this political election year. I got tired of hearing all the different numbers so I did a little research of my own and found some things very interesting and quite honestly surprising. Keep in… Read full post »
It is the same sad story played out over and over in our major media outlets. As in wars, the media wants to focus on the suicide bombers – not their victims. Sure the victims will eventually get their names in the video clips or newspaper and a quick quote… Read full post »
Recently, I sat down with my 17 year old son and chatted about politics and his belief on current political topics; mainly taxes, redistribution of wealth and the AHCA. I am very proud of him and agree to disagree with how he would like to see things. Like I told him,… Read full post »
I encourage everyone to go to DC and see our memorial monuments, museums and historical treasures. We spent four days and three nights in the DC area. Our hotel was close to almost the last metro stop (Dunn Loring – Merri… Read full post »
Most family vacations tend to look like the ones filled with water, rides and shows. Ask a child where they would like to go on vacation and most, if not all, would mention a theme park. This year however, I am looking forward to our family vacation more than… Read full post »
Occupy movement. I just don’t get it.
College kids these days think that just because you have a degree means someone will hire them and the world OWES them something. Get over it, children! Welcome to reality, it is about time you face it.

What if we only lived in a world that people walked around agreeing to disagree and nothing more? Think about that for a moment. Have you ever wondered what that would be like if nothing ever was accomplished. A world where people never truly listened to and understood an oppositional… Read full post »
I am relatively new to paying attention to the discussion on federal taxes, but remember growing up as a kid that every time there was a presidential election it was the major issue from both sides of the discussion.
From my general understanding of the big picture, taxes… Read full post »
It never ceases to amaze me how many people do not think before they open their mouths. Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen recent words has to have everyone wondering, “What was she thinking”? Listen, I know we all have moments of intellectual lapses but come on. Saying that… Read full post »
The state of American politics on all political sides makes me want to vomit in my mouth. One side is no better than the any other. That being established as an almost truth – from many people I have spoken with, I have tried to figure out if… Read full post »
