Chick-fil-A Gets the Support of Americans

(26) Comments | Posted August 2, 2012 | 10:22 AM

The support for Chick-fil-A around the country was incredible. It shows the mainstream media does not control the hearts and minds of the people. In Chicago, the line wrapped around the block and created a traffic jam of sorts. It was orderly without incident. There were only individuals supporting the...

Time to Do What Washington Does Best... Vacation!

(0) Comments | Posted December 20, 2010 | 9:44 AM

Well here we are the Christmas season of 2010 and most of America seem very disillusioned with the hope and change promised and voted for by the American people. After reading the leading polls it appears even President Obama's supporters have grown tired of the constant campaigning.

The great...

Reflection on the November 2nd, 2010 Shellacking

(1) Comments | Posted November 15, 2010 | 9:21 AM

Well, the election frenzy is over and we can return the normal routine schedule of news as usual. President Obama declared last week after the midterm elections that he received in his words a "shellacking". I think that was a gross understatement, but President Obama has a gift for understating...

Chicago Loses a King, Gains a Dictator

Well, I guess it's official, Rahm Emanual is running for the office of Mayor of Chicago. I guess I could get conspiratorial and claim that besides the White House, "they" want to control the federal government and the third-largest city in the United States. However, I won't go there; I...

Elderly Women Neutralizes "Urban Terrorist", Justice Served

(4) Comments | Posted September 29, 2010 | 4:40 PM

When I arrived home last night and turned on the television a shocking story was on the air. It was about an elderly woman who had shot a 12-year-old boy throwing bricks at her house.

As the story unfolded on the screen, and I listened to the people being interviewed,...

Mayor Daley Is Not Running -- Good Riddance

(3) Comments | Posted September 8, 2010 | 11:10 AM

The big story in Chicago yesterday was the announcement that Mayor Richard Daley will not be running for a seventh term. This should not come as a surprise to anyone who has been following city politics or who reviewed the gang members' press conferences last week.

LA County Board an Embarrasment

(5) Comments | Posted July 26, 2010 | 10:00 AM

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to boycott Arizona because of SB1070. A law that enforces established federal immigration law and statutes while giving AZ law enforcement officials the authority to question a person's citizenship that cannot produce a state-issued drivers license, state-issued ID card, or a...

President Obama and President Calderon Misguided

(14) Comments | Posted May 21, 2010 | 12:42 PM

I'm willing to bet that neither President Obama nor President Calderón has bothered to read the Arizona Immigration law. The reality is the bill is an extension of the United States Immigration and Nationality Act and specifically Title 8 of the Code Federal Regulations. It is unconceivable that the head...

President Obama's Afghanistan Speech a True Capitulation

(3) Comments | Posted December 2, 2009 | 11:52 AM

I waited with great anticipation as millions of Americans to hear the President Obama's speech about his Afghanistan policy. Let's be clear about this point, President Obama's policy and not a remnant of the Bush administration.

What I heard was very perplexing to say the least, on the one hand,...

November 2, 2009

Here we are one year since the first Black American President was elected to office. I must be honest with you all and proclaim it was a relief not to have Sarah Palin a heartbeat from the presidency.

The Republican ticket of McCain/Palin left a lot to...

October 18, 2009


Today is a special day in my life and always will be, so there are a few things that take precedence over everything else I had previously planned for the day.

As I got dressed for brunch, I watched a special on Dr. Martin...

Mr. President, Please Let Us Know When You Do Something!

Mr. President, Respectfully Decline:
Let Capt. Kirk and Spock have it!

I must confess when I heard that President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009, I was in total disbelief! So I decided to take a week to let things settle down and the multitude...

Eric, Arne and Chicago 2016

(2) Comments | Posted October 7, 2009 | 9:13 PM

While I hate to say I told you so, however I told you so. I predicted that the Chicago 2016 Committee would lose the bid for the Olympics. My reasons were clear, pragmatic, concise and on point. The Committee tried to portray Chicago as a world-class city, at least in...

The videotaped beating death of Derrion Albert on Chicago's South Side could have been from the streets of Somalia during the Civil War in their country in the 1990s. Let's fast forward to this week and President Obama and the First Lady, along with the Chicago 2016 contingent, in Copenhagen...

Putting the First Amendment to Work

As an American, A Black American, a radio talk show host, and participant in social, and politics issues most of life, I find an interesting trend developing since the election of Barack Obama, as the 44th president of the United States of America. That trend is to treat President...
