The Marion County Election Board and U.S. Senator Richard Lugar have reached a settlement that would allow the incumbent to vote in the May 8 primary.

Politics & Public Safety

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

I learned a long time ago from a very wise man that the only problem with playing games in politics is sometimes you come across people who can play better than you.   I strongly suggest the Indianapolis City-County Council keep that in mind as it navigates the waters of Public Safety Director Frank Straub’s “confirmation” […]

How To Fix Health Care Without Killing the Patient

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

The U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday heard what most are calling the most important piece of the President’s health care plan, the individual mandate that citizens must purchase insurance or pay a penalty.  The logic being that if everyone has insurance health care costs prices will drop because no one will be running to the emergency […]

Now What?

Monday, March 26th, 2012

This is a picture from today’s rally in Indianapolis regarding Trayvon Martin.  Now that everyone has protested and gotten this out of their system, the next question is now what do they do?  The tragic part about events like this is that while  thousands may show up to protest, unfortunately the only people who end […]

Is Duke Oliver Out of Touch or Out of His Mind?

Monday, March 26th, 2012

I have suspected for the past couple years that it may be time for Indianapolis City-County Councilor William “Duke” Oliver to call it a career because he is either completely out of touch with reality or he has completely lost his mind. The latest evidence of all this occurred at a Saturday gathering of the […]

How to Beat a Stereotype

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

The Ad Wars

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

New ads are going up in the race for the Republican Primary for the U.S. Senate.  Incumbent Richard Lugar has unveiled this ad accusing challenger Richard Mourdock of  “low rent” politics. Meanwhile, FreedomWorks, which is backing Richard Mourdock, is unveiling this web-based ad.   It’s gonna be an interesting race, to say the least.

Negroes, Please!!!

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

It’s time to be the bad guy, again, and say what needs to be said because a lot of people won’t man up and say it. Black people, please start getting some of your unruly children under control or do the rest of  us with home training a favor and stop having them. Five teenagers […]
