Obama’s Legacy; Constitutional Heresy?

Share

Currently in political speeches, political offices and even in a federal court, debates about President Obama’s executive order effectively granting limited immigration amnesty, are being argued. The debate lies not in the content and purpose of the action but in the constitutionality of the executive order. The question to be decided is whether or not the President overstepped his authority…

The Disillusionment of “The Moral Middle”

Share

American politics have abandoned me in a sea of disillusionment. I know what I want in a Presidential candidate. However, both parties have become so dysfunctional that any candidate for whom I would be excited to vote, can never win their primary. Instead I will once again be obligated to cast my only vote for one of three possible candidates.…

Rand Paul – Paradox

Share

Senator Rand Paul is an authentic; corral the Feds; hallowed be the Constitution; don’t touch my guns; build a fence Republican conservative. Or, is he?

The Moral Middle: Bigotry in a List

Share

Lists are used to organize our lives. My wife says you can spot an “IT person” because they walk around Walmart with an Excel spreadsheet. I confess, I use lists constantly. They help me get my work done, remember the grandchildren’s birthdays, outline a presentation and, yes, I have used an Excel spreadsheet as a shopping list. Some lists, however,…

President Hillary Clinton? Is She Worthy?

Share

Even though the Republicans are still lining up, I think it is safe to take a look at Hillary Clinton as a Presidential Candidate. Senator Clinton has not announced her candidacy yet and doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to do so. Nevertheless, it appears an almost sure thing that she will end up with the Democratic nomination. Granted, a…
