The product of a military family, growing up in Naples, Italy and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and being stationed in Germany for two years while in the Army, Vince spent half of his first quarter century seeing the US from outside of its own borders. That perspective, along with a French wife and two decades as a struggling entrepreneur have only fueled an appreciation for freedom and the fundamental greatness of the gifts our forefathers left us.

King Leonidas, ISIS and the Culture War Barack Obama Refuses to See… Nevermind Fight

By 10 Comments 1,159 views

A week and a half ago fascist thugs of ISIS attacked Paris. Three days later President Obama addressed the world from Istanbul and said the attack was “an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share.” That is a wonderful sentiment, but like most things that come out of Barack Obama’s mouth,… Read more »


Twilight Zone Zombie Education Apocalypse: Detroit Government Schools Fail 95% of the Time…

By 21 Comments 1,874 views

Sometimes in life there are things that are so obvious that when others don’t see it you’re left scratching your head wondering if you are living in a Twilight Zone episode. Such was the case when I read a headline last week: Detroit Public Schools: 93% Not Proficient in Reading; 96% Not Proficient in Math…. Read more »

Oxymoron: A figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction One sometimes thinks the word started with our government: Government Intelligence… Government Efficiency… Government Accountability… In reality, it’s been around since the Greeks first coined the phrase, no doubt adding oxy to a word they probably used to describe their politicians too:… Read more »

Barack Obama as Commander in Chief … The Pentagon as a social experiment

By 14 Comments 1,583 views

I’ve probably cited this before, but it’s easily one of the best speeches ever uttered in the movies. In A Few Good Men Jack Nicholson’s Col. Jessep explains life to Tom Cruz’s Lt. Kaffee: “… And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in… Read more »


The People’s House… A Historic Opportunity To Lead Should Not Be Squandered On A Squish

By 8 Comments 1,229 views

First there was Eric Cantor. Then there was John Boehner. Now there’s Kevin McCarthy. But somehow conservatives are once again being encouraged to grab defeat out of the hands of victory. This time by electing amnesty advocate Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House. We’ve been told the House is dysfunctional. Nothing could be farther… Read more »


Happiness doesn’t come from equality of outcomes… Nor does prosperity

For years we’ve been hearing stories of schools scrapping dodge-ball, sports leagues eliminating scoring and schools passing students despite their lack of academic achievement. The reason, we’re told, is to protect the self esteem of students who might otherwise be harmed by coming up on the short end of a competitive stick. Of course none… Read more »


Why Culture Matters: The Natural State of Man is One of Poverty, Scarcity and Conflict

By 13 Comments 1,309 views

One of my favorite teachers in high school was Mr. Kelly. Ostensibly he was a reading teacher, but his interests were far more inclined towards history and cultures. We once got into a discussion about the great cultures throughout history. The obvious names came up… the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Romans, Aztecs, ancient China etc…. Read more »


The Invasions of the United States and Europe – Why Start A War When You Can Sign Up For Welfare?

By 13 Comments 1,650 views

Last Monday I wrote a piece about immigration here at home and a changing face of Europe abroad. It was inspired by a trip to Europe and Ann Coulter’s Adios America. With all of this on my mind I tuned into Rush’s show on Friday for my normal dose of Excellence in Broadcasting. And in… Read more »

Adios America, Europe in Transition & An Enlightened Single Issue Voter

By 16 Comments 1,030 views

I’ve just returned from two weeks in Europe with our time split between France and Germany. My sleep patterns being off a bit I occupied myself for a few nights reading Ann Coulter’s Adios America. Great book! I highly recommend picking up a copy. In it she talks about the disaster unfettered immigration from the… Read more »
