    John Ratzenberger played one of America's most beloved sitcom characters, Cliff the Mailman, on "Cheers" for 11 years. Since then, he has become one of the most-employed voices in Pixar movies, with a role in the latest, "Finding Dory." But he's also a longtime Republican activist who will be appearing in four panels at Politicon starting Saturday and running through the weekend in Pasadena, California. LifeZette talked to the actor, 69, about his opinions on the issues involved in two of his four panels at the weekend gathering -- his passion for the Second Amendment ("Tons of Guns") and his...

    Your World anchor Neil Cavuto referenced Scott Walker and noted, "He didn't finish college. So, he doesn't have that prestigious degree. He could be up against an Ivy Leaguer like Hillary Clinton." Ratzenberger zinged, "You know Ivy Leaguers and I know Ivy Leaguers. And I tell you, those are not the people whose houses you rush to after an earthquake." The actor mocked, "It's not like, 'he's got an MBA from Harvard. He'll know what to do!'" - See more at:

    Cliff Clavin was among those who came to Ohio this weekend to help Gov. John Kasich and Treasurer Josh Mandel take office. John Ratzenberger, perhaps best known for his role as Clavin on the television show Cheers, attended a salute to incoming first lady Karen Waldbillig Kasich at the Columbus Museum of Art on Saturday night and was master of ceremonies for Mandel's swearing-in ceremony yesterday. Ratzenberger said that he knows Kasich from appearing on Kasich's former Fox News television show, and that Kasich also appeared on Ratzenberger's show about manufacturing in the United States called John Ratzenberger's Made in...

    When did "blue collar" become a dirty word in America? Right about the same time America gave up its position as the world's producer and instead became the world's most conspicuous consumer. That's not to bash free enterprise; we need to purchase and consume. But this cultural shift has created an "industrial tsunami" that threatens our free enterprise system. America faces a crisis of epic proportions. The U.S. Department of Labor forecasts that by 2012, there will be a shortfall of nearly 3 million skilled worker positions in America. The average age of skilled workers in many trades is 54-56...

    I Tweeted a little Cliff Claven, but here's some more from John Ratzenberger's remarks at Brown rally earlier: "This isn't the Democratic party of our fathers and grandfathers. This is the party of Woodstock hippies. I was at Woodstock — I built the stage. And when everything fell apart, and people were fighting for peanut-butter sandwiches, it was the National Guard who came in and saved the same people who were protesting them. So when Hillary Clinton a few years ago wanted to build a Woodstock memorial, I said it should be a statue of a National Guardsman feeding a...
