I have the OnX GPS maps on my phone that show all the land ownership and hunting access for everywhere. It’s so cool and makes enjoying public lands really easy. I was wondering if there was a GPS map one can buy that has the boundaries of different governing bodies like State Legislatures, Congressional Districts, […]

Socialist Senator Sanders Gets a Taste of Capitalism

 

But does he recognize it? I’m guessing probably not. This situation is the epitome of a capitalist tradeoff. His campaign staff is unionized. He went along with it because he has to as a “democratic socialist.” He is also highly in favor of a minimum wage of $15 per hour. His campaign has a budget, with a certain amount of dollars. So, Mr. Sanders has discovered that, with his current campaign budget, he cannot afford to pay everyone $15 per hour. He has stated, therefore, that he will reduce some staff hours in order to pay everyone that vaunted $15.

Yes, Bernie, when your cost of doing business rises (with little to no productivity improvement), you are forced into tough choices. Do you lay-off an employee? Do you reduce everyone’s hours? Do you reduce only some staffers’ hours? If you want to maintain a viable campaign organization, you will need to make some hard decisions.

Regardless of whether there was any substantive result from Mr. Trump’s visit to Mexico and meeting with the Mexican President, I believe that the appearance (“optics”?) will be a substantial help for Mr. Trump.  He appeared to be right at home in dealing with a foreign head of state on particularly touchy issues (and, on the foreign […]

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is attempting to elbow Dr. Ben Carson aside in brain expertise, claiming that if she’s elected she’ll eradicate Alzheimer’s disease by 2025. It’s a cause close to the former first lady’s heart, as both she and her husband have repeatedly suffered the devastating effects of memory loss when giving […]

There’s finally good news for the many liberals who’ve been curled up in the fetal position quivering and weeping since comedian Jon Stewart quit The Daily Show in order to pursue his passion for clubbing baby seals. And the good news for the comedy-starved is that Hillary Clinton’s handlers (not a job you want to […]

Have you ever encountered soap that doesn’t produce a lather?  It works. Hands that smelled like wet dog before had no scent after rinsing. But I couldn’t tell from the look or the feel that the soap was covering my entire hands and doing its job. Without the lather to show me the work in […]

Every good candidate needs a great campaign website.  What I look for is one that includes descriptions of the candidate’s stance on “the issues,” topics such as foreign policy, the economy, education, health care reform, etc.  The more specific the candidate is with their policy proposals, the more seriously I take them.  So, this afternoon I decided to […]

It’s my turn, right? I did the whole governor thing so it must be my turn. Look – I’m a principled conservative – just look at the data! Did I tell you I’m bilingual? In Spanish, no less! Did you hear that, Mexican-’Mericans? My wife, too – in English, though. Once you get to know […]

What qualifies me as the most-principled, least-electable conservative in the Republican field?  As a third-generation Californian, my connections offer the GOP the best chance of winning my state’s tantalizing 55 electoral votes. And my political experience here in the Golden State speaks for itself: I’m not only president of the Bay Area Republicans Club but I’m also the […]

Musicians vs. Politicians, Part XCLVII

 

As Gov. Scott Walker took the stage at Saturday’s Iowa Freedom Summit, a Celtic-tinged rock tune blared through the speakers. The song pumped up the crowd and garnered a few compliments on social media.

Campaign walk-on music usually consists of patriotic standards, inoffensive baby boomer nostalgia, or “Beautiful Day” by U2. (If C-SPAN paid ASCAP fees, Bono & Co. would own the network by now.)
