Vicente Fox: A man with a purpose

This is a piece I wrote for Widener University after hearing Vicente Fox speak at the Widener Speaker Series.

CNN Anchor Asks If “A Little” Anti-Semitism Anti-Americanism Is OK

On the same day that the San Francisco City Attorney called using accurate quotes from muslim extremists “Islamaphobic” (CBS), CNN anchor Erin Burnett asked former First Lady Laura Bush if we have to  “accept” anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism “when we want to make change” in the Middle East?”  Please check the tags, this is NOT satire,…

Obama Anti-Choice

  Rejecting an individual’s right to choose in almost every regard, President Obama is one of the most anti-choice Presidents in history.  While the President’s spokespeople have accused Republicans of waging a “war on women” solely because of abortion policy discussions, ironically the White House is against choice in virtually every other regard.  I don’t…

Michelle Malkin Reports On Big Brother Monitoring And Selling Student Data

One of the common themes running through Thinking Right are the frightening parallels between today’s society and George Orwell’s 1984.  This last election showed all of America just how good the Obama Administration has become at generating and using personal information to their own ends as they created one of the most focused and succesful…

United States Economy Headed For Meltdown

  Within the next six months the United States economy will suffer what economists call a “reset” and I call “meltdown.”  I really debated writing this piece because I have very little empirical evidence to support this conclusion and I urge you NOT to use my advice to alter your investment strategies.  However, during 2000…

Rand Paul’s Fascinating Fillibuster Incredible Challenge To Left

One of the most fascinating dynamics I have ever seen is playing out before our eyes in the Senate right now.  At about noon E.D.T today, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took the dais in the United States Senate and declared “I rise today to begin to filibuster John Brennan’s nomination for the C.I.A.,” Mr. Paul…

The vice-president of Venezuela noted that Chávez’s cancer was most likely caused by “outsiders” infecting him.

Michelle Obama Strands Chicago School Kids Hungry For Hours

  Marie Antoinette brought on the French Revolution by telling the starving masses “let them eat cake.”  Michelle Obama left 6,500 public school children stranded hungry and thirsty for hours waiting to be the latest pieces of window dressing for the FIRST LADY (I put that in all caps because she really thinks she deserves…

Nuclear Iran, North Korea A Threat To Earth

Having grown up during the height of the cold war, I still remember the very real concern that the world might end in a flash.  While my children have never known that fear, events of the past few years may bring back that low-grade background fear experienced during the 60′s and 70′s.  Two of the…
