25 years ago today....



25 years ago today this man said goodbye.
I can't imagine what our world would look like without him.

Mid - December Update

There is a reason I haven't been posting on my blog much anymore.

Actually, several reasons....

I took a new job in March that was more time-consuming. I have had less time to write and follow political issues.

Another reason is that my blog had limited readership. I think I'm only up to 250,000 hits after four years and over 1,000 posts.

I think I get a bigger impact from my efforts on Facebook and Twitter.

So I've been spending more of my time there.

Yet another reason is that I might be done, politically speaking.

I have been looking at the 2014 election races and I do not see a good spot for me that would either give me a better result than my loss in 2012 to Congressman Adam Schiff, or that would help to build my name recognition for a future victory.

I wanted to be an elected official and rise to a very high position, but that might not happen.

I am reviewing my options and will be choosing my path for 2014 soon.

Thank You, President Reagan!!




For all my friends who are thanking Veterans for their service today, I would like to remind you that those Veterans act under orders from their commanding officers, and for better or for worse, they bear the direct brunt of decisions made by those leaders. Today I would like to thank my former Commander-in-Chief Ronald Reagan for his moral leadership. He decided to make our military the strongest on earth....so strong, in fact, that no sane enemy would want to fight us. Because of him, hundreds of millions of people today are free from the suffocating yoke of Communism. And massive numbers of service members who were prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice... never had to face a single bullet fired at them in anger.

I will be grateful for that for the rest of my life.

"They acted like you had shot Santa Claus"






My friends Degé Coutee and Stephen Schochet attended my debate with Congressman Adam Schiff back in October of 2012. I was recently discussing my performance in that debate with Degé and told her that I was happy with many of the answers I gave that night. I asked her if she remembered the jaw-dropping reaction when I told the heavily-Democratic crowd that Global Warming was a "scam". She said...

"They acted like you had shot Santa Claus"

That's a great line.
I'll remember that line for the rest of my life.
