Politics and Google – Dr Robert Epstein and Mark Levin #video

| September 12, 2019

No matter your political ideology, everyone who values integrity in our elections and in political campaigns, should be concerned with how information is disseminated and prioritized. Nowadays we depend no a very few sources that we hope are unbiasedly sifting through and helping us search information and news. For the past decade or so we […]

Can running for political office get much uglier?

| March 3, 2016

Yes … it probably can and will IF “friends” like  Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton go at it. On the otherhand, they still have some mud to sling to reach the level of the John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson campaign as highlighted in the WSJ. Political Mudslinging, 1828 If you think this presidential campaign […]

Contemplating gerrymandering changes in U.S. politics

| October 11, 2015

After an enjoyable polictical conversation with a client this week in Akron, I'm unsure where to come down on the long political practice of gerrymandering verses risking changing it. On the surface, there must be a better way, but with change can come an unbalanced and equally questionable re-alignment. Here is an article forwarded from […]

Senator Ted Cruz is beginning to sound appealing

| October 30, 2014

The left, the media and even mainstream Republicans had me convinced that Senator Ted Cruz was not a viable candidate to put on the national ticket … and that his ideas were “just too radically conservative” for today’s America. BUT … listening to him for 6 minutes (below) on CNBC’s Squawkbox this morning, I’m not […]

Former MA Governor Mitt Romney makes it official

| June 2, 2011

The Republican heavyweight contender (at least in raising campaign funds) has announced his candidacy for presidency today at an event in New Hampshire. It was an expected move from a somewhat calculating and predictable politician/businessman – perhaps something the country needs? Former Governor Mitt Romney, a hardened campaigner, made the announcement at the Bittersweet Farm […]

Odd memories from the 2010 midterm election

| November 3, 2010

I’m not really a political junkie, but the 2010 midterm election have left me with a few memories … many highlighted in the media or from ads by their competitors. A few of them, triggered by the less political savvy Tea Party supported candidates, still makes me chuckle a little bit. Here’s a list of […]

Election Tracking Congressional Seats–semi-live blogging

| November 2, 2010

Just for the fun of it I’m tracking the election tonight as the results come in. My early gut call is that the Tea Party groups will run many of the incumbent Democrats out of office and give Republicans the House of Representatives.  In fact, I’m not really following the House race and believing it […]

An Election Day lesson for college students

| November 2, 2010

Once upon a time in 2008, there was a great “get out the vote” drive helping young people, less civic minded urban folks and busy college students to  register to vote. Democrats in particular canvased college campuses going dorm door to dorm door with the necessary paperwork so that students would be prepared to vote. […]

Polling locations, private property, free speech and lawsuits

| October 19, 2010

I’ve often wondered what is and isn’t permitted at local polling locations since many are private properties except for opening their doors on election day. In our suburban township we use schools, churches and building such as union halls, the later generating a lawsuit from a local community group of the Cincinnati Tea Party. Some […]

Strickland’s deceiving political ads targeting one issue voters

| October 13, 2010

As a lifelong advocate for a citizen’s right to own firearms, even I, a John Kasich supporter, was taken back by the recent political ads from the Ted Strickland (D) reelection campaign which targeted challenger John Kasich (R) and painted him as anti-gun. I thought, “and I’m supporting Kasich?” As is the case with many […]
