I am on a journey like all of us. I grew up in New Hampshire, attended college there, and have worked in business and technology for over 25 years. I’ve founded three companies and sold two of them (one didn’t make it). I’ve climbed the corporate ladder of “success”, serving as a business leader, CEO, and General Manager of various businesses. These days, I live in Georgia, and this blog is an extension of my world view, to help others, by planting and watering seeds of righteousness. I have a beautiful wife and two wonderful young boys. They are my treasure.


    Sorry Erick, Ross Douthat is Neither Precise Nor Right

    As much as I respect Erick Erickson and trust his opinions in many matters, in this one I’m afraid he is dead wrong.

    The Experiment Halfway Point: How Much Tax Do We Pay?

    It’s halfway through the month, and time to update you on my experiment. To review, I chose September to capture every penny of tax we pay, and see exactly how much goes to the government. I am only capturing direct taxes, rather than driving myself into the abyss of insanity by attempting to accrue all the corporate taxes, and second- and third-removed taxes on money we pay.

    Why Apple Pay Will Change Electronic Payments Forever

    Apple has included what most consumers think is a neat feature, or at best an innocuous addition to their iPhone 6 and Apple Watch: Apple Pay. In fact, Neil Irwin at the New York Times crows that “Apple Pay Tries to Solve a Problem That Isn’t Really a Problem”. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

    I Never Listen to the Experts

    The experts say don’t write about religion on political blogs, and definitely don’t write long-winded crap like this on serious blogs. They say. Bah. I never listened to them anyway.

    When a Hate Crime Against a Memphis Teenager Isn’t a Hate Crime

    What kind of society have we created when a crime motivated purely by hate, anger, rage can’t be called a hate crime because of the color of the victims?

    9/11 is a Bad Day. I Will Not Fear

    9/11 is a Bad Day.  I Will Not Fear

    September 11th is a day on the calendar, and no different than the other 364 days.  It’s a bad day for America, but not the worst day in history.  Jews have a holiday dedicated to a terrible day on the calendar, the 9th of the Hebrew month of Av.  It’s the day when Solomon’s Temple was destroyed in 586 BC.  It’s also the day when | Read More »

    Our Dreamer-in-Chief and the Real Ostriches

    In the wild, ostriches make a “booming” sound to ward off predators. They also don’t bury their heads in the sand. An ostrich’s kick can break a lion’s jaw, causing it to starve to death. These facts separate the American Left from real ostriches. American liberals (Ignavus Americanus), unlike ostriches (Struthio camelus), do bury their heads in the sand, and emit a rather high-pitched danger call, which in fact attracts predators rather than warns them.

    Obama sees himself as the hero in a 1980’s John Hughes teen angst movie, giving the climactic “can’t we all just get along” speech that melts the bully’s heart. And the world responds with a slow clap. Such noble goals and dreams he has, and anyone who intrudes with the reality of the bankrupt human heart is written off as a hater, an unbeliever, a dream killer. This is our main problem: we don’t have a commander-in-chief, we have a dreamer-in-chief.

    “There’s a sucker born every minute”

    A phrase of unknown origin—usually associated with P.T. Barnum, of Barnum & Bailey Circus fame. Barnum would never have called his patrons “suckers”, as he always wanted to give them their money’s worth, as long as he made money doing it. There’s only two levers to pull in making money: take in more, or spend less. Since Barnum’s day, this has not changed.
