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.

    “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.

    A Hobbit’s brush with Death

    “Well, what can I tell you? Life in the wide world goes on much as it has this past Age, full of its own comings and goings, scarcely aware of the existence of Hobbits, for which I am very thankful.”
    Gandalf only said this in the movie version of Lord of the Rings, which for the purist like me, means he never said it at all. But the quote applies to me in the last five days as much as any Hobbit in the Shire. In my brush with Death, I found myself totally disconnected from the news cycle, not writing or reading anything. And the world went on, scarcely aware of my absence. And I am thankful of that.

    Mental porn: We tv to air “Sex Box”

    The only thing separating a studio audience from a couple having sex on stage is a “soundproof box”. Then the couple emerges from their connubial enclave to sit on couches and talk about the experience—and their relationship—with a panel of “experts”. AMC, purveyor of classic movies, picked up the show “Sex Box” from the UK for its We tv unit.

    There’s nothing classic, or classy, about Sex Box. It’s crass, craven, and frankly, disgusting.

    Obama’s Cipher Legacy

    President Obama’s legacy will be a cancelled check made by himself to himself: a net zero. He has ensured that he will become a cipher in the history of American presidents, both from the Left and the Right. From the time he surfaced as a do-nothing Senator from the Chicago Way, to his current push to play more rounds of golf than any president since Eisenhower, this man has wrought chaos, failure and disappointment, even to his one-time supporters.

    Government pre-schools are limiting parental options

    Parents sending their three- and four-year olds to preschool are facing increasing pressure to use government schools, as secular, elitist educators use government funding as a back door to remove parental choice from pre-school options.

    The experiment: how much tax do we really pay?

    I decided to find out exactly what we pay in taxes. So for the month of September, I am going to track taxes in my budget software. Every single penny. That means the tax on groceries, restaurant taxes, ad valorem taxes, withholding from my gross pay, and even the gas tax per gallon when we fill up. I’ve heard it said that we work at least one day a week just to pay the government. I want to see if that holds true, or are paying more?

    Darkness and light

    Try as I might, I can’t look at yellow and see purple. Light and darkness can’t both occupy the same space at the same time, and President Obama’s pre-golf remarks about ISIL can’t occupy the truth in the world in which we live.

    Ferguson residents: I feel your pain

    Dear Ferguson residents, I sympathize with you. I know what you’re going through, and it makes me sick inside.

    I hate protests. I hate them with a visceral, sickening enmity. All the protests and violence won’t bring Michael Brown back, and those seeking justice really don’t mean justice: they mean revenge.
