When it comes to encouraging girls, I’ve been very progressive (unfortunately a label stolen by the political left … so perhaps "contemporary" is a better word) about equality between the sexes. I accepted Brenda as an equal from day one, even before we were married and that carried through to decision making well after – […]

This kind of interview and polite exchange with Jason Furman is what make Maria Bartiromo one of the best in the business … and why FoxBusiness is beating CNBC. They are now the business news powerhouse … not to mention their sister channel FoxNews had more viewers than any other network during President Trump’s speech […]

The Wendy’s keychain tag promotion has been a favorite of mine for several years now as I’ll usually buy several and hand them out to friends and family. The fast food company is running the donation campaign again in 2017, so I’ll likely continue to be drawn to eating the occasional meal there in 2017 — the […]

I wish politicians would listen to managers and owners of small businesses.

As the second anniversary approaches of the downing of #MH17 by Russian missiles over the Ukraine, my brother-in-law Jerry Skinner is doing what he can to keep the tragedy in front of the public eye. Pressure on politicians for them to pursue justice, compensation and a admission from Russia and Putin (a long shot) is […]

On Friday morning, Doug Wead a presidential historian, talked with Maria Bartiromo on Mornings with Maria about the confusion most of us have regarding contested, brokered or open political convention. Personally, I only semi-understood the "courting of delegates" process that goes on behind the scenes in party politics. The "sausage making" and cronyism that goes […]

Heard this interview this morning on SirusXM and glad Maria Bartiromo included it in one of her morning tweets.

Outspoken President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Richard Fisher, talked with Maria Bartiromo on her new Sunday Morning Futures program this weekend and laid out a good case lower tax rates. His point is that money and investment flows to where it is treated the best and in turn jobs and […]
