President Joe Biden? Think Benghazi And Fast & Furious

  I will never forget a comprehensive poll taken just before the 1972 Presidential election in which less than 1% of Americans knew what Watergate was.  One of the biggest political scandals in United States history that occurred months before the election had nary a ripple on the electorate at the time but eventually led…

Big Brother Alive and Well In Mission Viejo

Tonight’s Mission Viejo City Council agenda features a proposal to mandate hugely expensive fire sprinkler systems for private residents wanting to remodel their homes under many circumstances.  This is just another unneeded incursion into our private lives as “big government” tries to tell us what is best in an area that should be left to…
