Get Bland for Rand?

(0) Comments | Posted September 12, 2014 | 10:48 AM

In 1967 and 68, politics was an "old man" endeavor. Then, the image of every political campaign, particularly for president, was typically of older white males. In those years, you had to be 21 to vote, and those that were that young and were involved went to lengths to look...

Joan Rivers Died Like She Lived: Shocking People

(3) Comments | Posted September 8, 2014 | 10:28 AM

I remember growing up and seeing Joan Rivers on TV. My mom, an import from the very blue collar northern parts of England, always considered herself quite proper, in spite of her humble beginnings. She had "Victorian values" and was often willing to describe herself as a "prude."

I cannot...

Minimum Wage, Pandering Politicians, and Crony Capitalism

(4) Comments | Posted September 5, 2014 | 12:21 AM

Many policy makers seem to live in a dream world. "It is terrible that the working poor have to live on such a low minimum wage," they say. They address this problem by arbitrarily raising the minimum wage, although many jobs are worth less than the amount they set. This...

Rick Perry's Indictment Could Make Him Tea Party Poster Child

(7) Comments | Posted August 26, 2014 | 12:23 PM

There was a time in politics where the last thing a person wanted associated with one's name is a criminal indictment. Recently, Texas Republican Governor, Rick Perry, surrendered to authorities following an indictment for allegedly abusing his power in office. Typically, when celebrities face such actions, they find the most...

The Super Rich and Their Strange Allies

(0) Comments | Posted August 20, 2014 | 4:43 PM

If you read the fairy tale weaved by the major media and our history books, we would believe that liberal policies are beneficial to everyone, whether those policies are popular are not. The upper classes can complain all they want, but they sleep better at night knowing that the government...

This past week many members of the media received an email from one of the most senior House Republicans about President Obama's use of executive orders. It has "threat" written all over it, from the headline to the actual press release.

The slug reads, "House Republicans Defend the Constitution Against...

Houston has developed a reputation as the entrepreneurial capital of Texas, if not the United States. It is the fourth-largest city in the nation and is poised to supplant Chicago as number three by next year. It is a magnet for enterprises ranging from startups to Fortune 500 companies. It...

The GOP Needs an Obamacare Strategy

(4) Comments | Posted April 7, 2014 | 7:59 PM

After a long period in the political winter, it appears that the GOP finally has something to be excited about -- the Obama administration's health care debacle. However, now they have "caught" something, they need to figure out what they need to do with it. I have been visiting with...

GOP and the Dicey Debt Ceiling Waters

(2) Comments | Posted October 7, 2013 | 11:36 AM

I'm alarmed by the prolific spending that has taken place in Washington, D.C. for the last several years. This bipartisan created problem of "transferring the wealth" of future generations at the rate of $17 trillion in debt to voters today, is arguably mob rule at its worst. With that, I...

Rumors Surround Newt Gingrich as Possible Senate Candidate

(2) Comments | Posted September 19, 2013 | 1:37 PM

I have met Newt Gingrich several times over the years. We first met when he was a "young turk" in the U.S. House trying to keep the Democrat leadership on its toes by calling for investigations, starting the practice of exploiting C-SPAN for political gain, and other "guerilla tactics" that...

Recently, I had a chance to catch the season finale of Shark Tank. I have enjoyed the show for a couple of years. I love the drama that ensues as the sharks begin their attack on an entrepreneur and watching the back and forth dialogue between them.

Regarding Syria, Will Congress Say 'Hell No, You Can't Go'?

(3) Comments | Posted September 3, 2013 | 11:25 AM

President Obama has rarely had problems making unilateral decisions. In fact, he has been more than willing to implement policies even after they were overturned by another branch of government. Furthermore, he has also allowed agencies to do things in disregard of Congressional oversight. We have even seen this in...

Echoes of the 'Bush Doctrine' in Obama's Syria Rhetoric

(4) Comments | Posted August 29, 2013 | 3:13 PM

The controversial Bush Doctrine that became a political football over the last several campaigns now seems to be a part of Obama's strategy in dealing with the possibility that the Syria regime used chemical weapons against its own people. The "Bush Doctrine" was first used by Charles Krauthammer in June...

The Man Who Coined "Gamification" Takes Loyalty to a New Level

(0) Comments | Posted August 20, 2013 | 8:21 AM

We are now living our lives online - community, entertainment, work, finances - virtually everything we do -- by technology and throwing off reams of data (big data) about our activity. Smart companies are feeding this user-activity data into gamification systems which use data-driven motivational techniques to power engagement, high-value...

Harvard Business Students Have Made a Model that Could Make Traditional Business Consultants Nervous

(11) Comments | Posted August 13, 2013 | 1:42 PM

Small businesses make up half of the GDP of the U.S. However, the country's confidence is at historic lows. Adding new hires is risky, regulations are burdensome, and few want to make substantial financial commitments to growth that may never materialize. Across the country, smaller companies have begun to rely...

About a dozen years ago, Cees Links led a team of Dutch engineers (from AT&T & Lucent) to develop and create the first wireless networking technology - Wi-Fi. The technology worked, but the industry was slow to see the benefits of wireless networking - that is until Apple's Steve Jobs...

A New Leader in Multimedia Platforms or Just Another Pretty Logo?

(1) Comments | Posted February 20, 2013 | 12:06 PM

I remember in the early days of YouTube people questioned how far the new site would go. I mean, it was "just a video player" and its most memorable trait was its logo, that reminded people of enjoying TV back in the old days. Over time, the value...
