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.

Barack Obama’s Amnesty won’t be legal, but it will likely be permanent…

By 11 Comments 461 views

Sometime over the course of the next week Barack Obama is likely going grant amnesty to millions of people who are in the United States illegally. He’s doing this very much against the will of an overwhelming majority of American people. Not only do polls show that Americans are 3 to 1 against his giving… Read more »

By 12 Comments 359 views

I recently heard a broadcast minute from Neal Boortz. He said the following: During the 3 1/2 years of U.S. involvement (in WW II), here’s what we manufactured: 8 battleships, 22 aircraft carriers, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 4 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighters, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft,… Read more »

Illegitimacy: America’s racist past and present dooms its present and future…

By 12 Comments 526 views

I recently got into a lengthy discussion with some friends that makes me wonder how much longer the country can survive. Why? Because of such starkly different views on the nation, our history and the role of government. Frankly, I’ve never felt so bewildered in my life as to how people looking at the same… Read more »

Clarity of Government Purpose – Potentially the Silver Lining Behind of the Ebola Cloud

By 82 Comments 637 views

When the Ebola scare is done the damage it will have done is likely to be far more reaching than just the individual victims themselves. Of all of the things the government is supposed to do, protecting its citizens is likely very close to the top in most people’s minds. Indeed, government is supposed to… Read more »

By 12 Comments 572 views

The United States is in the midst of an economic malaise. 92 million Americans are out of work. 35% of the population is on welfare. The economy is barely growing. While incomes for the richest have been skyrocketing, the middle class has seen their incomes decline by 5% in the last 5 years. The federal… Read more »

Thirsty Californians and unemployed New Yorkers – Sacrifices to Liberalism’s Global Warming Delusion

By 18 Comments 1,065 views

Liberals often live in a fantasy world that ignores the real world right in front of them. They continue to pour trillions of dollars into poverty programs despite the fact that poverty persists and grows. Their go to solution for failing and failed government schools is always spend more money rather than embrace solutions that… Read more »

So you want to fire an employee for calling you an %@#*&! in front of customers? Barack Obama says not so fast…

A few weeks ago I wrote about the National Labor Relations Board seeking to destroy the very nature of America’s most successful business models… franchising. While on occasion the NLRB will stumble across a real issue of consequence, the frequency of that is about the same as real data supporting the man made global warming… Read more »

Secession, Revolution… are they the end game of a deck stacked against freedom?

By 7 Comments 574 views

I’ve argued for many years that the United States is the greatest nation in the history of the world. From driving prosperity to winning two world wars to putting a man on the moon to ensuring individual liberty the United States is unlike any other country in history. And it has nothing to do with… Read more »

The Strong Horse, Barack Obama and the Collapse of American Influence

By 24 Comments 558 views

Robert Kagan had an excellent piece in the Wall Street Journal a couple of weeks ago. Titled “Power Failure” it discussed the parallels between the aftermath of WW I and today. In it he talks about the feeling in the US and the UK after WWI that war itself had seemingly become impossible. Then as… Read more »

McDonald’s and the NLRB – those who can do, those who can’t regulate…

By 4 Comments 420 views

Franchising has been nothing short of a spectacular success for America. From restaurants to hotels to auto shops to plumbers, franchising generates hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue each year and employs millions of people across the country. Modern franchising as we know it was created a century and a half ago by Isaac… Read more »
