Ensuring our Founding Fathers ideals fit 21st Century America

2021-05-02T15:29:40+00:00

I don't believe all politicians to be evil, nor do I believe all of them to be saints. Finding fault with them all is easy. Finding hope has become the true mission, one that becomes harder every day with the spewing of rhetoric, propaganda, misinformation, lies and desires of the power mad amongst us. Hope can be found. All one has to do is read, or listen, to those words written so long ago. Then realize they have a power that is being suppressed and ignored by those who harbor no good will for all the people.

American Inspiration: Quietly shattering Muslim hate

2021-03-13T16:22:08+00:00

They are what America is supposed to be all about. They are the rich backbone of a country where very, very few are actually "from here". They are the soil from which a better country will grow and prosper long after we are gone. A mother, a father, and their two children. Trying to make their way in the world, provide a better life for themselves and their family in America. What could be more American, and more inspirational, than that?

Kevin Mather: The latest poster boy for smart people saying dumb things. Oh, and you’re fired.

2021-02-23T22:12:25+00:00

Kevin Mather, you're fired. Another supposedly intelligent individual with a high ranking position in a major corporation, this time a major league baseball team, makes us shake our heads yet again and wonder how someone of such reported intellect and savvy could be so stunningly foolish.

How the “Great Oakley School Board Zoom Fiasco” could have been avoided

2021-02-22T15:18:53+00:00

ZOOM has become all the rage for virtual meetings, due in large part to COVID-19 and how business was forced to make social distancing changes. Certainly, ZOOM and the other meeting platforms serve a purpose, but as we learned from the recent gaffe pulled by members of the Oakley (CA) School Board, use of these services and software can be disastrous.

Could Rush Limbaugh help America more in death than in life?

2021-03-13T16:33:55+00:00

We must be honest with ourselves, and in our acceptance of fact. Legacies must be accepted in their totality, without fear or favor. In the instance of those who have cut a wide swath across society such as Rush Limbaugh, what they did and how they did it must make us think, consider, reconsider, be honest with ourselves, and then seek out our better natures.

Always Be Closing: How to win a conversational fight without raising a figurative fist

2021-02-16T17:25:55+00:00

From the playgrounds I grew up on, to the location productions I've been part of, to the networks I've both created and worked at and the corporate meetings I've been privy to, far too often everything can be boiled down to those two words. Wanna fight?

Parkland +3: A pandemic “saving grace”. Promises still broken. Political arrogance still reigns.

2021-02-15T14:07:32+00:00

Parkland remains a strong and powerful rallying cry for those tirelessly seeking to change and repair a truly broken system of dishwater weak and loophole marred gun laws in America. Sadly, it is also a focal point for those who pound away that more guns on campus are needed, more people need to be weaponized, more confrontations and threats are the only thing that will save lives. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Why the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame needs Warren Zevon

2021-02-14T22:23:40+00:00

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame needs Warren Zevon more than he needed them. They need him, and others like him, to prove there is more to life than charting in the Top-40.

Disney did not fire Gina Carano from “The Mandalorian”. It’s obvious who did.

2021-02-12T03:31:36+00:00

The House of Mouse could no longer fend off the shots being taken by Gina Carano. All of them were warranted, and the only way to survive this onslaught was to dispatch the renegade with all haste. Carano was not merely gone in a blink, she was blasted out of the Hollywood airlock with all prejudice. She had knowingly crossed the uncrossable line. Sure, she may be a talented actor, but she is quickly and easily replaced. Her powerful and influential agency dropped her like 10 day old meeting quiche. At 38 years of age, and with this on her dance card, Carano hopefully has saved her Disney paychecks. Those residuals won't last forever. As far as the business is concerned, she may as well take that walk on the plank and say hello to the Sarlaac.
