This has certainly been the most interesting election cycle of my lifetime – more so even than the debacle that was the “hanging chads” of the 2000 general election. And perhaps the most interesting aspect of this primary process is what it says about the character of our nation. And […]
I am the General Manager for a nationwide document management solutions company, and a devoted husband and father. I am also a news junkie, always trying to stay up on the goings-on in politics in the United States and across the world.
I have an utterly useless BA in Liberal Studies from Cal State Bakersfield, and a Master's Degree in Information Systems from the University of Phoenix.
I'm always focused on my true loves: politics, my wife, technology, and my daughters (not in that order).
In my free time (what little of it I have), I love to write about politics - you can find my writings here on my blog, at RightWingNews.com, and at ANDMagazine.com.
I am also featured every Thursday afternoon at 1:00 PM on the Jaz McKay show on KNZR Radio
My latest column is up at AND Magazine! Here is an excerpt: It’s been a long time coming. In the face of mounting pressure by Congress, Secretary of State John Kerry has finally acknowledged the genocide of Christians and other ethnic minorities by ISIS in the Middle East, which has […]
Okay, folks…It’s Monday. I don’t know about you, but I’m about as tired of this election process as I can possibly be…and that doesn’t bode well if we’re going to make it all the way to November. It’s time to lighten things up a bit. So here’s the deal: I’m […]
I will admit that, at this point, convincing me to vote for Donald Trump is a hard sell – damn near impossible. I turned 18 in 2000, just a few months before the big Bush/Gore election. I didn’t have a great command of the issues back then, but I knew […]
My latest column is up at AND Magazine. Here is an excerpt: The story behind the GOP primary is anger. The polls, the pundits, and the voters seem to be in agreement: people are angry, and that anger is translating into votes. Donald Trump is intent on riding that wave […]
I’m not really into conspiracy theories, but with Donald Trump blustering about threatening to run 3rd party if he fails to win the GOP nomination, the question must be asked…
Out on the campaign trail, Donald Trump has been hitting Ted Cruz for saying that Trump loves Obamacare. Here’s what Cruz actually said (starts at 4:13): “A vote for Marco Rubio is a vote for amnesty; and a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for Obamacare. If you look […]
It’s amazing what are treated like real issues in this primary campaign: The media starts a rumor about Ben Carson dropping out; multiple campaigns (Cruz and Rubio) pick up on it. So did Cruz cheat to win in Iowa? No, but he came in 1st, so all fingers point at him. […]
Following Ted Cruz’s win at the Iowa Caucuses, Ben Carson came out accusing the Cruz campaign of “dirty tricks,” after they had urged Carson voters to caucus for Cruz. Today, social media and the blogosphere are rife with accusations that Cruz “cheated” to get his win in Iowa. But what […]
My latest column is up at AND Magazine. Here is an excerpt: In the high political theater that is the 2016 Presidential Primaries, it seems that most candidates are playing a part. Chris Christie pretends he’s a conservative, as he does every time he runs for president. John Kasich pretends […]
If it’s somehow okay for the government to seize private property from a person and hand it over to a business because the business will pay more in taxes, what’s stopping the government from seizing all of our houses and divvying them up between property management companies (other than that […]
So many people are up in arms because the Oscars are “too white” this year. If you care enough about awards that the film industry gives to itself that you actually know the racial makeup of the nominees, then you’re taking it WAY too seriously. I will admit that, many […]
