Semi unifying photo after the passing of First Lady Barbara Bush

| April 25, 2018

We live in a highly partisan time, where our differences seem to matter more than our similarities … they shouldn’t.

Semi-impressed watching President Obama with Letterman

| January 26, 2018

We watched the premiere David Letterman series on Netflix with President Barack Obama the other night and both Brenda and I were impressed with the likeability our previous president exhibited – reminiscent of why he was elected in 2008 (Letterman, not so much).

The swings between too much centralized government and regulation … and unregulated capitalism has […]
