    Danish PM Tells Bernie Sanders to Shut Up

    Well, this is embarrassing. The Danish Prime Minister has finally had enough of Bernie Sanders using Denmark as the golden example of socialism. Sanders believes that Denmark has a socialist economy and regularly used them as a successful example. And where did Sanders come up with this idea? While appearing in New Hampshire in September, Sanders said that he had “talked to a guy from | Read More »

    A Response to Ted Cruz on H-1B Visas

    Full Disclosure: My support at this time leans towards . I was recently laid off from an IT job where I’d been for over 15 years. First of all, I want to thank for reviewing his position on the issue of H1-B Visas. All too often politicians are either completely inflexible in their positions, or they are swayed by whatever political wind is blowing at | Read More »

    To the next Republican Speaker of the House

    Dear Mr. Speaker, First, I’d like to congratulate you on your successful election to the Office of Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. I’m sure you must be overwhelmed with your new duties, so I’ll be brief. The House must defund Planned Parenthood. Nothing else you will do during your tenure as Speaker will be as important as what you do right now. The | Read More »

    I’m a Single Issue Voter

    Over the years I’ve been critical of single-issue voters. More often than not that means sacrificing the good for the perfect. Now that has all changed. Several Republican congressional candidates ran on the promise that they would not vote for the current leadership. Many of the people that voted them into office did so in no small part based on that promise. Once the vote | Read More »

    My Letter to Senator Cory Gardner

    I’ve come to a crossroads with my political support. Now that it is clear Congress will do nothing to stop the President from doing anything he wants, he will do just that.

    Show Me Your Budget

    Vice President Joe Biden, during a speech in North Carolina, made the following statement. My dad used to have another saying, for real. And, by the way, I’ve been saying this for 30 years. And I’m glad to see that Congressman Ryan likes his dad, too, and quotes his dad. I mean that sincerely. But my dad [had] a lot of wisdom. Every time someone | Read More »

    Jack Ryan is not Running for President

    In Tom Clancy’s novel Executive Orders, Jack Ryan becomes President after a long and successful career in the CIA. A terrorist takes out the President, Congress and the Supreme Court, just after he was sworn in as Vice President, replacing someone that had resigned. It was done to re-unite the country, but was only supposed to last for one year. What is so appealing about | Read More »

    Kevin Lundberg (R-CAND, CO-02)

    One of the few things that most of us have agreed upon during this Presidential election cycle is the need to continue to improve Congress. We know that even if the best conservative candidate is elected he’ll need a solid conservative Congress to accomplish real reforms. And if we end up with a re-elected Obama, we’ll still need a solid conservative Congress to thwart his | Read More »

    Newt Gingrich for President

    It’s time. The silly season officially ends tomorrow as we begin to see rhetoric converted to votes. Although the Colorado caucus and primary are not for some time, I felt it was important to select a candidate. I recently wrote a diary with my evaluations of the candidates, so I see no reason to repeat that information here. As many of you likely expected, I’m | Read More »

    A View from the Cheap Seats

    I have to start all the way back on August 29, 2008. It was the day after the Democratic National Convention ended in Denver. I was leaving on a business trip to Italy that day, and found myself on a flight to Boston filled with delegates from the Convention. As you might imagine, there was quite a bit of chatter about the convention and the | Read More »
