About

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.

By 6 Comments 756 views

Two of the most dysfunctional areas of the American economy are healthcare and education, not coincidentally, two of the areas of the economy that the government has the most control and influence. In healthcare, while there is ostensibly some private elements to it, the reality is that government regulations control almost every aspect of it…. Read more »

Donald Trump, Name Calling and Losing Real Friends Over Facebook

By 22 Comments 1,285 views

  I started writing my blog in 2009, the year our first black president was sworn into office. Although I had written pieces previously over the previous eight years, it was not until fall of 2009 that I put pen to paper regularly. Did I mention that when I started we had our first black… Read more »

Rome Long Survived Countless Incompetent, Narcissistic Emperors, Will America Survive Barack Obama and His Successor?

By 8 Comments 1,185 views

I’m writing this while sitting on a cruise ship that’s docked in Mallorca, Spain. I’m heading to France and have just spent 4 days in Italy. I’ve only had a cursory look at the news from home, and what I’ve caught has been depressing, like this entire election cycle. One of the most interesting things… Read more »

Sure, Donald Trump may shiv us… but the country can’t survive Hillary Clinton’s thugs

By 38 Comments 1,836 views

Jonah Goldberg had a great piece over at National Review on Saturday. The title was: If Candidate Trump Can’t Be Managed, What Makes You Think President Trump Could Be?

Identity Politics – Barack Obama Fails Black America With Liberalism

By 8 Comments 1,716 views

In 2008 when Barack Obama was elected president, much of America – including millions of white people – thought the election of a black man to the presidency would prove that America had finally overcome its racist past and truly become a colorblind nation. Alas, that was not to be. Not surprisingly, after almost eight… Read more »

Fifteen Years Later: The 9-11 Attacks and the Silver Lining Found Within

By 3 Comments 676 views

Yesterday was of course the 15th anniversary of the attacks of 9-11. Like most people, I remember that day, that moment when I realized the nation was under attack like no other day in my life. I remember walking into a practically deserted Kroger supermarket near midnight to get some food as I hadn’t eaten… Read more »

Need help deciding which horrible candidate to vote for in 2016? Imperfect America’s Election Decision Engine

By 6 Comments 1,250 views

I for one am dismayed beyond imagination about the political situation the United States finds itself in today. We may be seeing the worst pair of candidates to grace the top of the main party tickets in the history of the country. Both are morally corrupt. Both are arrogant, self centered and greedy. Both are… Read more »

Colin Kaepernick Takes the Easy Way Out… Victimhood

By 15 Comments 1,730 views

Colin Kaepernick is certainly an articulate young man. That was obvious from his interaction with the press in the locker room where he faced a phalanx of reporters asking him about his decision to sit through the national anthem to bring attention to the “oppression” of black men. Given that this is the first year… Read more »

Thoughts on Trump – When Life Gives You Lemons…

By 43 Comments 2,779 views

While I’ve come to despise Donald Trump, I hope he wins in November… Donald Trump is a lying, manipulating, protectionist big government Democrat. I’ll still be voting for him, however, because Hillary Clinton is all of that and more. She will keep the welcome mat open for illegal immigrants from all sorts of 3rd world… Read more »
