Reach them where they live… From (The Good News Today)…

Gods Team     By Fred Comella   My son did his #23 imitation under the net in his high-school gymnasium recently, and it ended with a trip to the ER and fractured ankle just ahead of this year’s family … Continue reading

It has come to this…

My political views are no secret. And they can be a source of some contentious debate at times. That said, a co-worker recently “joked” the other day, asking if it were I who’d purchased Hitler’s phone at auction recently. Now … Continue reading

These are the times…

As we are witnessing primary campaigns unprecedented in American history, I feel somewhat compelled to evaluate our current posture, if only for my own sanity… On the Republican side, front runner and bombastic businessman Donald Trump is clearly a media … Continue reading

Irrational is a good word…

“Intellectually, these professors are no different than someone whose actions are defined by an irrational fear of sharks, witchcraft, or vaccines,” I believe (Students for Concealed Carry) got this right when addressing UT Dean of Architecture Fritz Steiner’s decision to … Continue reading

“Evidence, facts are on our side.” – President Obama…

On its face, one could say that statement was just political bluster, spewed by a failed and departing president in search of a legacy. But this is truly puzzling, and speaks to what many are now calling, President Barack Obama’s … Continue reading

“Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!!!”

Now I’m not sure I’d call it terrorism as O’Reilly did on FOX’s “Outnumbered” the other day, at least not in the same vein as Islamic Terrorism. But I do suppose the constant threat of punitive litigation by the Progressive … Continue reading

Don’t hold your breath…

Denial is one thing, ideology is quite another. President Barack Obama is clearly of the latter category, and he makes no bones about it. So for those looking for the POTUS to run to the nearest lectern and state what … Continue reading

Thanksgiving 2015…

Our nation seems a dream of that which I remember growing up. Nothing was perfect to be sure. But that is as we know, an unrealistic expectation. I would ask though, where have our parent’s dreams gone? How did we … Continue reading

I believe the Bremerton High School flap over Assistant Coach Joe Kennedy praying on the field after football games is indicative of our nation’s current posture. Traditional and undeniable tenets of our culture are being shunned and vilified, all while … Continue reading

Gentle Ben…

The Republican Debate lived up to all the hype and garnered FOX News yet another ratings bonanza. That said I only have one real take away from the seemingly very early exchange. All in both formats sounded practiced and polished … Continue reading

So healthcare is finally revealed for what it is, a grand illusion performed by our president to a sleepy and complacent audience (us). Now I know I’m gonna catch heck for this one, but Mr. Obama operates much like a … Continue reading

‘Shadow of crisis has passed’… Really?

Kudos to the Republicans for taking the highroad after last night’s State of the Union address. I have no such political desire today. As expected, the president embellished his record and misrepresented much of our nation’s current station to a … Continue reading

The issue of tension between police and minorities in this country is a double edge sword to be sure, with roots on both sides of the argument. But first the facts, as supported by all available evidence. On July 17, … Continue reading

FOX on the brain…

President Obama can’t put aside his battle with Fox News. The problem is his presidency is so difficult to defend. The POTUS recently tweeted that “While affordable healthcare might still be a threat to freedom on Fox News, its working … Continue reading

Term limits anyone???

I heard Congressman Steny Hoyer on FOX trying to defend “Obamacare” this morning. Same old talking points. “College kids on their parents insurance, no exclusion for pre-existing conditions, blah, blah”. Bipartisan stuff from day-one. Oh, and don’t forget we reached … Continue reading

An exercise in ideology, at any cost…

Remaking the “American Dream”…
