Free Money

Free Money Years ago, as a member of a subcommittee created by the school board, a member excitedly spoke about some new program. As I pondered the program and its value, it struck me as a lot of money for a select few students. Not much “bang for the buck” as a whole. It was… Continue reading Free Money

A Third Party is Not a Panacea

A Third Party is not a Panacea There are many parties in the U.S., but it is primarily a two party system. Do we need another party, or two, three or four more? Please no.

Gorilla Policy by Both Sides

Gorilla Policy by Both Sides The best chief executive will say the greatest asset of the organization is the people. While consider cliché, it is true.

This is simplistic, but important.  The President can’t make law and while the office can (and does) issue executive orders, these should not encompass the promulgation of new law, or expand current law [the fact that executive… Continue reading I Like Parks
