I've discovered that many of my friends and family, and quite a few of their friends and family, are part of that large block of voters in America, the Undecided.  The Undecided will probably determine many election outcomes, including the Presidency.  It worries me because many more...

Binders full of women? To make a Gilligan's Island analogy, last night's debate reminded me of an argument between the professor and an exotic hybrid combining Gilligan and Thurston Howell III. Good God, where do we begin? According to the talking heads, President Obama needed to climb through...

It's the age of action, a commercial proclaims as a man drives his old pick up truck along, towing a horse trailer.  The commercial talks about how he knows what to do, how he doesn't get upset, as the truck gets stuck.  He leads his horses out of the trailer, hooks them up to the truck...

With thirty-one days of the madness remaining, The New Yorker weighs in on the "Hair vs. Chair Debate" with a devastating cover design which will delight my conservative friends... but since I have friends with a differing political POV, I felt it only fair to quick-design what I hope is an...

I was talking recently with one of our nation’s youth (19 years old) when the subject of politics came up, that dreaded word which has sparked many heated debates, especially lately. We were about ten seconds into the conversation when he quickly said, “I don’t like that Romney guy.” I said, “...

It's irritating, innit?  So many decisions in American society are being pushed forward by expediency. Values and principles are being shunted aside.  The usual reasons for dismissing values and principles? 1. Security. We must be safe. We must be secure. We were attacked, you know. If we...

All I have to say is Vote. Vote. Vote and VOTE!!! I have become transfixed with the goings on of politicians and the media. MSNBC, CNN, Network Television and Fox have become some of my bestest friends. Here I am able to take a look at grown, so called smart folks; telling me what I should and...
