Good Reason To Vote For The Recall

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Governor Newsom is maneuvering in every way he can to make sure he wins the recall vote. Don’t doubt the state reopening on June 15th was a political decision.

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

When rioting, looting and murder was being endorsed last year by many elected officials in the name of equity, a little noticed phenomenon happened.

Dangerously Ignorant Business Executives

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Some 20 years ago, I got deeply involved in a political group. I recruited experienced political operatives and we started to build an operation that no one believed could be done. Then things started to go sideways because we were beholden to a national board made up of affluent contributors who knew little about grassroots […]

Supporting the Infrastructure Bill

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

I have taken a hard look at the proposal by President Biden to revitalize our national infrastructure.  I am ready, willing and able to support the proposal.  I just have a few questions. You start with $115 billion for roads, highways, and bridges.  Please tell us the specific projects you are spending that money on […]
