How I Reached an Immigrant Voter

November 25, 2013

I was speaking with an owner of my gym a couple of weeks ago. He was born and raised in South Korea, and he speaks functional, not fluent, English with a heavy accent. We had never had a long conversation before, only discussing exercises and sports, but when I asked him how business was going, […]

The Real Democrat Health Care Plan

November 24, 2013

Now that Obamacare has opened disastrously, many on the right hope it will fail “under its own weight”.  Not a chance.  No government program has ever been ended just because it did not perform as sold and cost more than originally estimated.  Social Security is paying out more than it takes in already.  Medicaid and […]

Minting Coins and Americans – Obama’s Second Term

January 24, 2013

Though Obama may be known in the second term for giving gay Americans equal rights, his ‘legacy’, if proper legislatures are passed, and healthcare, when Americans start agreeing to its benefits, his dealings on fiscal policy may be faulty and lackluster again. Firstly, the trillion dollar coin is not going to solve the fundamental fiscal […]

At the Beginning of the movie “Goodfellas” the main character played by Ray Liotta is narrating his childhood involvement with the mafia. He points out the mafia was simply a place where criminals could go to settle their differences, the way non-criminals would use the police or courts to settle differences. And that the police […]
