Benghazigate: Obama Administration Cover-up to Rival Watergate?

More than a month after terrorists attacked the US embassy in Lybia on Sept. 11 and assassinated the US ambassador and three others, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton now takes full responsibility for the security failures that permitted the attack.  But the questions remain as to why a YouTube video was blamed for an obvious terror attack.To date no one  that I have found has taken blame for the Obama Administration -- and the President himself -- calling the attacks random and blaming them o … [Read more...]

Why I Give Embracing Obscurity by Anonymous a Mixed Review

It's not often we get to critique something done by an anonymous person -- well, come to think of it, I suppose we give mixed reviews of such people all the time. The idiot who set up the construction barrels in a confusing way on the expressway, the moron who didn't reserve the right hotel room for us, or the nameless mechanic who obviously didn't check our oil when we took it in 7 months ago.Ya, I guess we critique anonymous people all the time. But few have written a book about … [Read more...]

The Emancipation Proclamation: Do Two Wrongs Make a Right?

Slavery is wrong. It is sinful. A pernicious evil in which humans seek to become as God over their fellow man. I hate it with a passion. And my heart hurts for the countless thousands of peoples who are in bondage still today across the world. Support one such freedom spreading orgnaization here.And yet after a recent visit to the sacred grounds of Antietam, site of the bloodiest 12 hours in American military history, I find myself asking troubling questions about a document that supposedly … [Read more...]

Chicago Teachers Strike: What is the Answer?

"I'll be bloodied and you'll be bloodied, but at least you'll know not to bully me again." ~ Jay Rehak, Chicago teacher Source: Chicago Tribune Much fuss is being made about the need for teachers in classrooms in Chicago as they strike today, creating chaos city-wide. But with teachers who make comments like the one above, I'm thinking the students may be better off outside of their classrooms.I expect such immaturity from students -- elementary students, that is -- but not from … [Read more...]

Forsakin’ Akin and His Bacon: When It’s Wrong to Be Right

Is it ever wrong to be right? Let's hope Todd Akin thinks so. And soon. I'm ready to be forsakin' Akin -- and his bacon.One of the most challenging things a leader can do is quit when he thinks his interpretation to be the right one. Todd Akin thinks his explanation of his offensive comments about "legitimate rape" are sufficient to dispel calls for him to call off his campaign for the US Senate.But it really doesn't matter what he thinks.Tim Dalrymple has much better rhymes about baco … [Read more...]

The Question: What Are You Going to Be When You Grow Up?

"What are you going to be when you grow up?"When my children are asked this question -- and they often are -- I have taught them that they do NOT have to answer.Am I rude? I don't think so.I think it's the question itself that's out of place.Think about it. How do kids usually answer this question?  I think I used to pick chemist as my acceptable answer. My College Algebra teacher's laughing hysterically right now. At least now he knows I'm awake.Most children answer by conjuring up a … [Read more...]

Why Paul Ryan as VP? You Win with an Energized Base

I don't claim to be a political expert, although I've followed politics ever since I could remember. I recall tracking Reagan's win in 1980 when I was but a wee lad. I most enjoy thinking about the human behaviors and leadership patterns behind political decisions. Of course, I'm the guy who watches sports mostly to see the leadership dynamics of the team. Sorry. Can't help it.When I saw that Mitt Romney had chosen Paul Ryan as his VP pick, I had one thought: You win with an energized base. So … [Read more...]
