Chicago in Concert in Dayton, Ohio

Sun, 21 May 2017 12:06:44 +0000

We attended the Chicago concert at the Rose Music Center last night with a couple of our friends.  It’s hard to believe that the jazz/rock band is celebrating 50 years.  It was a sold-out concert that was extremely well received by the fans.  I’d have to admit that the 9-piece band has some very talented […]

I recently had the opportunity to talk about additive manufacturing at the RAPID conference in Pittsburgh…  A couple of photos of the downtown looking towards the baseball stadium along with a view of the conference exhibit hall.

Affirmative Action vs Meritocracy

Mon, 08 May 2017 21:33:48 +0000

I’ve explained to many a person, that our culture is still enamored with false pretenses and virtue signaling (also known as Political Correctness). Unfortunately, many day-to-day decisions at universities, government, and other large organizations have very little to do with considering merit.  A good example is the reduction of staff at ESPN: ESPN NFL reporter […]

Obamagate vs Watergate

Sun, 07 May 2017 04:16:07 +0000

Update I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that the mainstream media is ignoring this story.   Nevertheless, Sheryl Attkinsson has done a nice job putting together the timeline of the Obama administration’s involvement in the unlawful targeting Americans.   April 6, 2017 Is this a surprise to anyone? The Rice story strengthens the assessment that for […]

Is Greece the “Canary” for Economic Decline?

Wed, 03 May 2017 16:44:08 +0000

The continuing saga of economic decline in western democracies…  Is Greece the “Canary in the Coal Mine” for how these events unfold?   Update It’s a never-ending story.  It appears to be the proverbial “kicking the can down the road”.  They’re throwing more money at Greece once again for the promise of more austerity measures: […]

Are Democrats and Republicans the Same?

Wed, 03 May 2017 03:11:28 +0000

I often say that most Republicans are the same as Democrats, except they proclaim that “we can run big Government more efficiently”… I’ll give credit here to Rush Limbaugh when he confronted Vice President Pence about the recent Federal budget that supports big Government: “If this is what happens, Mr. Vice President, why vote Republican?… […]

Who are the Bad Guys?

Tue, 02 May 2017 17:28:54 +0000

Who knows? Perhaps there is still hope in the world… a writer in the Chicago Tribute has observed the obvious: For years, the left has warned that it would be conservatives who would take away people’s basic rights like the right to free speech… The end of American liberty would come at the hands of […]

Trump’s Initial Achievements

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 10:40:07 +0000

I have to agree with Larry Elder — The most important success was stopping the march of Leftism: President Donald Trump’s biggest achievement in his first 100 days? Easy. He stopped the left. Measure Trump’s first 100 days not just by looking at what he has or has not accomplished. Look at what America would […]

Leftist Jews and Anti-Semitism

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 11:49:37 +0000

Leftist Jews always prioritize progressive causes ahead of Judaism The most outrageous tissue of lies I have seen in my forty-five years as a journalist appeared yesterday on the website of The Forward, a once-great Jewish publication long since absorbed into the echo chamber of liberal propaganda. … “How does the Forward expect to get […]
