The Frustrations Of The Registered Independent Voters

Posted on September 5, 2015 at 2:15 PM


The number of registered Independent voters has been slowly increasing since the 50’s. I assume this occurs because both the Democrat and Republican parties have been sliding left with each election. Most states, including Florida, have closed primaries. In a closed primary the voters cast their vote for a candidate from the party in which the voter is registered. Republican voters choose from the field of Republican candidates. Democrat voters choose from the field of Dem...

2015 State of the Union, an Immigrant's Perspective

Posted on March 20, 2015 at 1:20 PM

     I immigrated in 1949 as a child with my siblings and mother and father after a three year wait for someone to pay for passage for a family of seven. We were displaced from our farm in the second world war and our home was taken over by the invaders.

     Our family received passage to the United States in 1949. I was naturalized ten years later when my parents earned their citizenship. In those ten years my father and brother p...

Interrogations protected the United States and the World

Posted on January 7, 2015 at 11:15 AM

When you can’t see the forest for the trees you need to step back and take in the big picture.


World War I was a global war centered in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. More than 9 million combatants and 7 million civilians died as a result of the war, a casualty rate exacerbated by the belligerents' technological and industrial sophistication, and tactical stalemate. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, paving the w...

Nothing will be more important in this election season than working to get Governor Rick Scott re-elected. Focus on that.

Some observations from yesterday to think about:

Turnout was very poor. 15.97% of t...

Who is the Far Right

Posted on May 24, 2014 at 7:00 PM

            I thought I was a member of theFar/Extreme Right because I oppose the progressive/extreme left until I looked for a definition of Far Right. Mostly, I found references to European politics which associated Far Right with violence, racism and extreme uncivil behavior. Today’s politicians and progressives have been lumping the Tea Party, 2nd amendment supporters and returning war veterans with the Far Right groups such as ...

Posted on February 10, 2014 at 10:20 AM

            I’m trying to understand how Conservative American Citizens can be referred to as terrorists by the 25% of radical Americans and AINO's. I am a radical conservative. Other American conservatives don’t terrify me. You don’t terrify me. Do I terrify you?

Am I A Radical

Posted on January 7, 2014 at 4:05 PM

            Have you ever been called a radical or you have radical views? I have. Between electionsI have had time to ask myself “Am I a radical”? The left has corrupted so many common words that I decided I had better consult the dictionary to get a fresh start toward my understanding of the meaning of radical. I find that there is no such thing as a “

A. I. N. O

Posted on December 13, 2013 at 11:00 PM

It is getting difficult to distinguish between Progressives, Liberals and RINOs. They all seem to be working toward the same goal, the destruction of the American way of life and the capitalist system. Instead of getting bogged down trying to figure the correct label to apply to an elected official, I have settled on an acronym for a new label that groups them all:

AINO - American In Name Only.

Runaway Automobile || RunawayGovernment

Posted on December 13, 2013 at 11:05 AM

            There is an automobile whose gas pedal is stuck to the floor so the driver can’t slow it down by taking his foot off of the pedal. The brake line has a leak and the harder the driver presses on the brake pedal, the faster the brake fluid leaks out and he can’t stop the vehicle using the method that was designed into the automobile to stop it under normal circumstances. The cable for the emergency brake is rusted th...

Constitutional Correctness Trumps Political Correctness

Posted on June 11, 2013 at 9:45 PM

          I first heard the term “political correctness” about 25 years ago. When the fellow explained how it works, I said “that is the biggest conversation killer I’ve heard of”. As it has developed over the years, political correctness is a pry bar that is being used to tear America and our society apart. Political correctness is used to stifle thoughts, actions and constructive conversations and nobody has come up ...
