FREEDOM: The unfounded and unfunded myths of entitlement

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., November 21, 2014 – Our elected officials have a ministerial duty to create and administer the law without allowing their personal ideologies to affect this responsibility.

FREEDOM: Is ‘government efficiency’ an oxymoron?

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., November 14, 2014 – One would hope that operating in an efficient and effective manner would be among the main objectives of our Government. However, those two concepts appear to be foreign to our feckless leaders. Apparently, the rule of “supply and demand” doesn’t apply whenRead More…

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., November 10, 2014 – The United States’ economic recovery has been slowed by the absence of a well-defined economic policy. It also seems to have been limited to the rich and missed entirely by the poor; the latter of which has been supplemented by individuals whoRead More…

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., October 25, 2014 – The United States federal government spent approximately $141 billion on public education in fiscal 2014, yet test scores continued to fall in our K-12 schools and tuition continued to rise in our institutes of higher education.

FREEDOM: U.S. education policy gets a failing grade (Part 1)

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., October 21, 2014 – The United States’ public education system needs to be taught a lesson.

FREEDOM: Fueling the discussion about Climate Change (Part 2)

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., October 17, 2014 – Nature abhors a vacuum and so do our major political Parties. In the absence of a cogent resource policy, they rush to fill the void; not with long-term strategic plans but rather with random musings that only have to survive an electionRead More…

FREEDOM: A resource policy for energy and the environment (Part 1)

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., October 13, 2014 – Energy and the environment are inextricably combined, yet rarely discussed within the context of a national resource policy.

FREEDOM: Foreign policy that ‘redistributes the wealth’ (Part 3)

RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., October 9, 2014 – What would happen if the world began to accept its joint responsibility for maintaining humanity?
