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.

    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.

    Sketchy media coverage on Rick Perry exposes bias

    If there were a law against biased “journalism”, there’s enough evidence to convict the mainstream media of it just by looking at their coverage of Rick Perry. I thought they had it in for Scott Walker, but that was mostly the communists over at MSNBC, and nobody watches MSNBC anyway. The MSM has carpet-bombed coverage of Perry’s indictment for ‘abuse of power’, devoting 25 minutes of airtime in two days, all of it breathless speculation that this could “end any chance of a White House run in 2016” or some derivation thereof.

    Ferguson and the worst job in the world

    When the community loses all trust in the police, and the police can’t discern the real criminals from those they are supposed to protect, the rule of law, private property, and the preservation of our basic rights as Americans breaks down pretty quickly. Until some trust is restored, this impasse is going to continue. At some point, Ferguson’s black community will end up executing vigilante justice, which is just as wrong as the police standing back while criminals flourish.

    Zero-tolerance or jackass parent?

    We’ve lost our minds in Houston County, Georgia. I live in Warner Robins, and I was simply in shock that in our conservative enclave, the very heart of liberty-minded rational patriotism, home of Robins AFB and the F-15 capital of the world, that zero-tolerance insanity had roosted in our midst.

    This stuff only happens in other places, like Anne Arundel County Maryland, where the infamous pop-tart gun was invented, or New Kensington, Pennsylvania, where a first-grader turned in a toy gun and faces expulsion. It doesn’t happen in our city, because we’re sane. Yet that’s what the news is reporting.

    Is the news right? Well, yes, and no.

    Kevin and Tony. Criminal trespass.

    Humanity demands more of us than the urge to win at all costs. It demands that we place others above ourselves. It demands that our basest impulses of anger, competition, revenge, and pride be subverted to mercy, care and humility. In this crime, both Kevin and Tony are guilty of trespassing. One dead, one ruined. The two men will always be linked together by this one moment.

    When the Russians invade Ukraine, our response is…FAIL

    Just when you think things might calm down in Ukraine, they heat right back up. Putin is sending an aid convoy into Donetsk. This might be a pretext for an invasion, and as usual, we are left flat-footed with no idea what Russia will do, and no response prepared if they do it.

    Why Wendy Davis MUST NOT be governor of Texas

    Wendy Davis’s character has one property, and one only: ambition. Not the kind of ambition an aspiring football player gunning for the NFL had, like Scott Turner. But a Jordan Belfort, Wolf of Wall Street blind ambition, which knows no excess, and has no boundaries. Davis has only one goal: amassing personal power, and she’ll let nobody or nothing stand in her way.
