Friday, February 12th, 2016

I am a tried and true capitalist.  I believe in free markets.  And I believe in always doing what’s best for your economic interests.  I also believe in being honest about it. I bring this up because of the announcement this week that United Technologies Corporation, the parent company of Carrier was relocating its facilities […]

Donnelly Weds Good Government & Good Politics

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

Last week, U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly demonstrated a concept I have come to label as “enlightened self-interest.” That means you do the right thing not only because it is the right thing to do, but you also get a benefit out of it. In Donnelly’s case it was coming out (pardon the pun) in favor […]

Did you […]

Looking for Lugar Republicans

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Somehow I get the strange feeling that “Lugar Republicans” are in pretty high demand these days.  Democrat Joe Donnelly mentioned how he worked with Richard Lugar to save  Indiana’s automotive industry.   Richard Mourdock does in a roundabout way when he talks about working with Governor Daniels to keep Indiana on track.  And Democratic gubernatorial candidate […]

100 Days to Go

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

As of today, we are 100 days out until Election Day.  So I figured what better time to sit down and do a little political pontification and handicap the big political races here in Indiana. Now granted, the caveat in all this is the old adage that a day in politics is a lifetime and […]
