Let’s Level the Liquor Playing Field

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

Indiana’s alcohol laws will drive you to drink. We all know how ridiculous it is that you can’t buy alcohol on Sunday or cold beer at a grocery store or gas station (make that most gas stations).  But did you know in a liquor store you can’t sell cold soda or bottled still water, but […]

Hey Indiana Lawmakers, Thanks for Nothing!!!

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Two years ago Indiana was in the middle of a level five political hurricane called RFRA.  A few years before that Democrats and Republicans deadlocked over “right to work, ” and Democrats fled to Champaign, IL bringing the government to a halt.  And just last year we were all pondering whether then Governor Mike Pence […]

Time for a Single-Payer Health Care System

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

(With Congress on the road to repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, I thought it was appropriate to dust off this column I wrote back in 2012.   It was brilliant then and is even more so now. ) As a conservative-libertarian leaning political pundit, I am now convinced more than ever that it is […]

A Toll Instead of a Tax

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

As Indiana lawmakers enter the second half of the 2017 session, the big focus will continue to be on roads and infrastructure and how do we pay for them.    Indiana has $1 billion in annual road needs and needs a long-term plan to make it happen.   House Republicans get major kudos for have the courage […]

Donnelly Will Be Tough to Beat

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

I have some friendly advice for my Republican friends regarding Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly.  He is not going to be a pushover come next year. Allow me to elaborate. Opioid abuse and veterans suicide.  We all know that no part of Indiana has been spared the impact of heroin, opioid, and prescription drug abuse.  […]

So What Exactly is a “Working Family”?

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

I was listening a debate recently between two Indiana lawmakers and the subject came up regarding “working families”.  One said the other’s policies would hurt working families in Indiana.  I’ve been hearing that a lot lately.  One political party says the other political party’s policies are bad for “working families.”    And it’s not just the […]

Same-Sex Marriage Has Been Good for Business

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

I was in Target the other day picking up a Valentine’s Day card for my wife.   I grabbed a card and looked out the outside which read “I found the perfect woman.” I opened it expecting it to read “and you found the perfect man”, but it didn’t.  When I opened it up it said, […]

It’s a Different World

Monday, February 13th, 2017

This past weekend I did an interview with a local community activist who has an Internet based television show.   We taped on Saturday at a studio at 38th and High School Road.  It was in a strip mall that was full of places that most of us would likely never go.  The inside was half […]

Revisiting Right to Work

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

I was reviewing my Facebook timeline this morning and it reminded me that it was five years ago that Indiana became a “Right to Work” (RTW) state. In case you forgot, RTW simply means you can’t be compelled to join a union as a condition of your employment. I immediately flashbacked to the protests at […]

Dear White People*

Saturday, February 4th, 2017

This may sound strange, but you have my permission to use the “n-word” whenever you feel like it.  No, I take that back, you have my blessing.   Here’s why. If the Deputy Mayor of Neighborhoods for the City of Indianapolis can use racially offensive language to describe black people and there are no consequences, […]
