About a year ago my father died and over this past year, not a day has gone by that I didn’t think of him. Sometimes those thoughts would bring pain, other times joy.

It is an honor to have had a father that fought with “The Stand Alone Battalion”, 2nd Battalion (Currahees), 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile).
I also think that my father would be happy and honored to know that the Currahees are still amazing soldiers who defy all the odds.

However, the strategy did not work, | Read More »

Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry. There are a couple of things I’d like to say to them, but in the interest of keeping | Read More »
