When Playing the Race Card, Don’t Deal From the Bottom of the Deck

Monday, October 31st, 2016

As politically incorrect as I can be when it comes to talking about race, there’s nothing more offensive than when someone tries to play the race card and deals from the bottom of the deck.  Allow me to elaborate. A “controversy” this weekend ensued following an editorial in the Indianapolis Recorder (full disclose, I am […]

Gregg’s Gaffe

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Let me start this by saying John Gregg is a pretty smart guy.  You don’t become Speaker of the House, work for major Fortune 500 companies and become the interim President of a University without knowing what you’re doing.   This is why I was surprised at his major gaffe at last night’s gubernatorial debate. It […]

100 Days and Counting…

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Back on June 15, 2015, just hours before he filed for re-election, Indiana Democrats called on voters to “Fire Mike Pence”. They argued Pence hurt the state with support of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  They also said Indiana was falling behind when it comes to jobs and wages. I remember the rhetoric quite well.  […]

My Big Dem Weekend

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

Well, we just wrapped another Indiana Democratic State Convention.  And as anyone who was there will tell you Democrats left their convention on fire and ready to do their best to fire incumbent Governor Mike Pence in the fall, I thought it was only fair that we provided you with some additional perspective that you […]

The Politics of Credit and Blame

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Recently I heard an elected official give a speech where he touted how the economy was turning around, jobs were coming back, unemployment was dropping, but there was still more work to be done. Shortly afterwards, I heard someone who opposes that elected official say that while jobs were being created, they weren’t good paying […]
