I thought of politics as I thought of work this morning.  The two share parallels. Work is about solving problems and charting courses to make the company more profit.  Making more profit is our number one concern. Figuring out how to take care of issues and customers falls in line with...

Yesterday marked the 32nd anniversary of John Lennon's murder in front of the Dakota apartment building in Manhattan, and not much has changed. Congress has failed to enact any gun control legislation since 1994. The revolver that was used to shoot John Lennon was a .38 caliber five shot Charter...

November 6th election day. I awoke sleepy and tired, having stayed up way too late listening to every station possible to try to find someone that could say something to make me believe that our president would remain our president. I was anxiety ridden thinking about what it mean to our country if...

Finally, it's almost time. Good God, are you ready for this thing to be over? I know I am, but it's my own fault. I mainline so much of this political stuff, I'm having trouble finding a vein these days. Ever since Chief Justice John Roberts' stammering oath billowed wisps of partisan...

In less than two weeks, we all have a choice to make, whether to vote for the Democratic incumbent President of the United States or choose the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney. Frankly, it is not much of a choice. During the election four years ago, many people decided to vote for Obama as...

After last night's "Commander in Chief" debate, it is clear to me that only one candidate is a person of character and can be trusted to continue leading this country. No, I do not think nor do I agree with everything President Obama has done, is doing, or is likely to do. But, in all the years I'...

The fog rises high off the lake and off the valley beyond the country road at the end of our driveway.  The green grass between our house and the lake glistens with frost this morning.  I run to Gerald and ask if this was a killer frost.  Would our son-in-law’s soybean crop be...

Whenever he comes on the air, the radio or in print I can immediately hear his cool voice talking only to me and in my ear. He is O.B. our President Barack, Mr. Obama, President Obama - he is the man!! He deserves to stay the President. If the country does not come out, it will be like driving a...

Warm outside, cold in here.     Son Guy slept all day.     The day moved swiftly, with a sense of having to catch up, as always.     Isabella from Dr. B.'s office called to say that he has mailed a prescription for handrails in our bathroom, which should arrive by the...

Some say shoes make the man. To me, it's about character. Lately, there have been noises from Democrats and Republicans alike opposing the president's recent diatribes on Bain Capital, and that company's business practices when Romney was at the helm. I say, they're overdue. Notably, The New...
