Corruption Knows No Party.

I’m a conservative. So’s Sen. Ted Stevens (R, Alaska). I believe in drilling for oil in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge. So does Ted. I believe that conservatives principles should guide our government. Ted agrees. So why do I want to see Ted Stevens resign from office? Here’s the deal: Corruption is corruption. It strikes […]

The Problem with Miley.

Know what a “Tween” is? Unless you’ve been living under a rock (which might not be such a bad idea, actually), you know a tween is the trendy label for those ages 9 to 12 – not quite a child anymore, but not quite a teenager. A “tweenager,” if you will. I’m the proud father […]

Agency Management 101: Don’t Turn Your Clients Into Pets.

Most of what I know about marketing, you can divide into three groups: knowledge acquired by instinct, knowledge acquired by experience, and knowledge acquired by study. I wish I could say this next little marketing gem comes to me via instinct or study, but I learned this (sort of) the hard way: by experience. So […]

Music that’s eclectic.

As some of you know, I’ve been a musician since an early age. Up here in Amarillo (Centrally Located Between Two Oceans!™), I haven’t had many opportunities to play professionally. All that has recently begun to change. Andy (the Brother I Never Had) Chase and I have put together a group, and we’re calling it […]

Don’t Buy This Book.

I love to read. I read just about everything I can get my hands on – from mysteries to histories, tech books to cook books. My favorite for light reading are in the techo-thriller genre…books about heroic Americans fighting the spies and soliders of other countries or terrorists. Glenn Beck (one of my favorite radio/TV […]

Zig Obama.

I’m a conservative. (Note I didn’t say “I’m a Republican.” In today’s world of RINOs – Republicans In Name Only – running the show, I can’t claim kinship…the word “Republican” has no real meaning any more.) As a conservative, I’m against practically everything Obama stands for. You know – socialism, higher taxes, less national defense, […]

On Hypocricy.

Here’s the deal. Ever since the crowd decided that the morals of a politician were nobody’s business but their own, we’ve lived in a world of double standards. Both those on the Left (Sen. Edwards, Jesse Jackson, Rep. Jefferson, etc.) and those on the right (Larry Craig, Ted Stevens, etc.) try their best to […]

Why doesn’t Islam practice excommunication?

Whoo, boy, am I opening a can o’ worms on THIS one. Exhibit A to the left here is one of the cartoons the Danish papers had the courage to print. Now, it’s not that the cartoon is really in bad taste – not when we Christians have to content with the ‘art’ of Robert […]

The Entitlement Generation.

Look around. Think about how our society seems to be going to Hell in a hand basket. Consider the many things that seem just…wrong, and ask yourself, “is there an underlying cause?” I don’t know that I’ve gotten to the “who” or “when” or maybe even the “where,” but I have a pretty good idea […]

Everything that’s old is new (again).

I’ve actually been blogging for years – far longer than this blog has been up. While my old blog died with my old company, it occurred to me that it would be nice to have a lot of the old posts I’d written online. The answer is a bit of database manipulation, where I pull […]
