Disenfranchisement – The Ultimate Betrayal of Democracy

May 29, 2012

Ron Paul’s delegates to Tampa’s Republican Convention are looking at two ways of disenfranchising America’s Republican primary and caucus voters, denying them their voice in selecting the next Republican presidential nominee … and handing the election to Obama.

This blog is about conservative principles as they apply to the investment community.  It may not look like it at first, but if you trust me and hang in there, you’ll see what I mean.  Eventually. For those who followed Facebook’s projected IPO since late last year (and, because of a client I had at […]

Electoral Hubris

May 15, 2012

I received the third copy of an email today from a former Presidential candidate, and it reminded me of the frustration I felt in 2009/2010 when I was Director of Communications for the Nevada Republican Party (and, also, the Clark County Republican Party), a frustration that stems from out-of-state candidates and campaigns “poaching” for money […]

Causes Going Too Far

May 11, 2012

I’ve got nothing against good causes.  But I am concerned when good causes go too far.  So far in 2012, we’ve seen a bumper crop of “good causes” which have, in one way or another, gone too far. The latest one, and the one which has really raised my hackles, is the organized demand that […]

Are Sasha and Malia Fair Game?

May 11, 2012

President Obama – like President’s Bush and Clinton before him, has daughters who are still kids – and like the two preceding Presidents, he’s asked the media (including, I suppose, the blogosphere) to leave them out of the political debate, to give them a bit of personal privacy.  This, by the way, was something that […]

Libertarians and Abortion – An Irrational Position

Libertarians call themselves “The Party of Principle.” After examining their party platform, all I can say about that is, “not so much …” When I first considered the Libertarian position on abortion, I assumed that – being the Party of Principle” – they would be vehemently against abortion, since they are very clearly vehemently against […]

Metaphor Alert – Ship Christened by First Lady Springs Leaks …

May 10, 2012

Yes, this isn’t exactly world-beating news, but it is a grand metaphor for the Obama Administration.  In March, First Lady Michelle Obama christened a massive new Homeland Security-tasked Coast Guard Cutter, the USS Dorothy Stratton.  That was in March, when the ship was launched.  Two months later, she’s sprung at least four leaks, and needs […]
