Go back to your own “Country”!

My late Mother was a complex woman to say the least, God rest her soul. She often expressed her need to find “peace of mind”, particularly in her final years. A concept I hope we all would agree is paramount to enjoying the human experience, regardless of which side of the aisle one might choose….

The American Shareholder

I’m sure most of you remember the classic movie “Wall Street”, starring Michael Douglas as the “evil” Gordon Gekko. His famous quote “greed is good” rattled the cage of those who believe that corporations are the root cause of all that ails this country (YouTube). Say what you will about Mr. Gekko and his “type”, but we…

Punch drunk “Boxer”

I take a lot of heat for my conservative views living in the liberal North East, New York to be specific. But if you want a glimpse of what this country would look like if we continue down this path of “spreading the wealth around”, and taxing everything that moves to pay for “reform”, check…

Lesson for a Liberal

My day job requires me to teach on a regular basis. Not the kind of teaching you may assume, in a classroom with “minds full of mush”, but at an emerald outdoor adult playground; a golf course. With my marketing career on hold, I have been pursuing another of my passions for some time. Guess…

Tribal Parties

An old friend of mine from the Deep South happens to be an African American. He’s an educated professional, graduating from college (Tuskegee) with a degree in veterinary science. As a small business owner, he also pays his “fair share” of taxes, local, state, federal, including outrageous malpractice insurance rates. You can’t have Mrs. Smith…

P.D.D. – Politically Depressed Disorder

What with every human condition, emotion, or behavior now labeled by the “experts” as a disorder, I’ve decided to brand one of my own. Hell, I might even meet the requirements for “free” meds compliments of our comrade in chief at the national health reform hospital inWashington,D.C.Hope I don’t have to wait in line too…

Health “Scare” Reform?

In 1991 I attended a “managed care” seminar in NYC while working for my second medical device marketing company. I don’t recall much regarding the specifics, other the theme was dark and foreboding, with dire predictions of “crisis” and impending doom…sound familiar? The speakers were mostly from the insurance industry, with a few healthcare consultants…

You’re FIRED!

I hate to admit this, but yes…I watched Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” season finale last Sunday night. Furthermore, I must confess a moderate addiction to the show since late February. Quite frankly, I anticipated Sunday night’s almost as much as that first cold PBR at day’s end (almost). My late winter visit to Mobile resulted…
