    Yesterday Townhall.com published a column by yours truly that, by all accounts, was well received by Townhall readers. The topic was the leftist attack on McDonalds over minimum wage issues. You can read that column here. Usually I take a hike for a while after submitting column to Townhall. Too much of my insensitivity can cause emotional problems among proggies, and I am, after all, a compassionate man. Besides, I don’t want to wear out my welcome here. Well, here we are .. the day after .. and I just have to chime in with more on this McDonald’s minimum...

    Not that my opinions here mean anything more than anyone else’s, but I did want to put as many of my thoughts on the George Zimmerman trial down on paper (so to speak) before we all get caught up in the next controversy. So here goes ……. First, I want to share the perspective I bring to this. We each have a unique story, but you may find mine a bit unusual. I grew up in a military family; Marine brat. Right up until my junior year in high school I lived on a Marine Corps air station, or in...
  • U.S. Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA) spends $20,000 on fundraisers at Fenway Park

    07/18/2012 1:10:22 PM PDT · by matt04 · 2 replies
    U.S. Rep. Richard Neal spent more than $20,000 on two recent fund-raisers at Fenway Park. Neal, who represents the 2nd Congressional District, invited donors to join him at a New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game on April 20 and at a 100th anniversary of Fenway Park celebration and game against the Cleveland Indians on May 11. His fund-raising report released Monday for the quarter that ran through June listed Neal as spending $5,142 at Aramark Fenway to pay for food and drinks, and another $1,680 on Red Sox tickets. However, Neal’s finance report covering the previous quarter reported that Neal...

    Neal Boortz: 17 days away from righting our wrongsBy Neal Boortz For The AJC 7:38 p.m. Friday, October 15, 2010 **SNIP** Then we had companies like McDonald’s suggesting that they were going to drop their “mini-med” plans. Why? The mandated increases in benefits would be simply unaffordable. Obama moved quickly to offer waivers to McDonald’s and (why not?) to some of his union pals. So much for the law applying to everyone equally. Now, 17 days before the election, we have a new poll provided to me by Fox News showing that 59 percent of Americans want ObamaCare either repealed...

    Patricia Neal, the famous actress passed away from lung cancer yesterday. Patricia Neal was a great actress and became a strong Catholic pro-life advocate as an adult. When Neal was young she fell in love and had an extended affair with her married co-star Gary Cooper. When Neal became pregnant with his child he urged her to have an abortion which she did. Gary Cooper's daughter Maria Cooper famously spat on Neal for carrying on an affair with her father. Later, however, Maria Cooper and Neal became great friends and it was Maria Cooper who helped bring Neal back to...

    Transcript of remarks made by Leo Carrington (who doesn’t exist) to a mandatory meeting of all employees of Carrington Automotive Enterprises, Inc. (which doesn’t exist either) on August 17th, 2009 at the Royal Payne Hotel (a purely imaginary place) in Norfolk, Virginia (which does, in fact, exist). I would like to start by thanking you for attending this meeting, though it’s not like you had much of a choice. After all, attendance was mandatory. I’m also glad many of you accepted my invitation to your family members to be here as well. I have a few remarks to make to...

    Yesterday, James McGovern, Representing the Massachusetts 3rd District and Richard Neal, (Hampden 2nd) attempted to sell the administration’s health care program to individuals attending a town hall meeting at the University of Massachusetts campus in Worcester – it did not go well. The Worcester Telegram and Gazette’sarticle (here) , describes a “packed town hall meeting” where Neal and McGovern were met by a hostile crowd. Town hall meetings are being held across the nation in a last-ditch attempt to sell the government run health care program, and one would expect, that those held in a blue state such as Massachusetts...

    Barack Obama is now leader of the most influential nation on earth. Are we yet capable of dancing to his song of hope? Obama was elected by default by a desperate nation drowning in faithlessness and cynicism. He was simply the best bet for change. This bleak outlook is the chronic disease of our day. We are pessimistic about our economic and ecological futures. We distrust government officials, officers of the law, bureaucrats and the principles of big business (while we scramble to enhance our own bottom line.) We doubt the trustworthiness and ambitions of people of other colours and...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

    ANSWERING A FAIR TAX QUESTION During yesterday's show a caller asked what would happen to her 401K funds if the Fair Tax bill became law. No income taxes had ever been paid on that money residing in her 401K. If, by the time she starts drawing that money out, the income tax is history, will she have to pay some sort of penalty? One month ago I would have rattled off the answer. No. No penalty. No taxes. You take the money and run. Yesterday, however, I was a bit more cautious. I've spent many hours over the past weeks...

    Jan. 31 Neal Knox Update -- Tuesday the Wisconsin Assembly will vote on whether to override Gov. Jim Doyle’s (D) veto of a license to carry law. The Senate has already passed the measure and the state’s press and leftist organizations are practically foaming at the mouth to stop it. The override could succeed – or fail – by a single vote. The vote had been scheduled this past Tuesday but was cancelled because one pro-gun member was absent due to illness – a claim disputed by the press, which said the delay indicated the majority Republicans didn’t have the...

    In his classic Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville warned about the "tyranny of the majority." The French political scholar, who toured the United States in 1831, observed that few precautions had been taken to control the unlimited power of direct democracy. "If ever the free institutions of America are destroyed," de Tocqueville wrote, "that event may be attributed to the unlimited authority of the majority, which may at some future time urge the minorities to desperation." This is what is happening in California. The recall campaign against Gov. Gray Davis is an assault on democratic institutions. Led by right-wing...

    Revenue: Weary of high taxes, a famous old-line company wants to leave the U.S. Public officials’ reaction reveals an all-too-common mind-set in the halls of power. Stanley Works, the New Britain, Conn., toolmaker, announced in February that it had plans to reincorporate offshore. The move would save the company $30 million a year in taxes. Last week, shareholders approved a paperwork relocation to business-friendly Bermuda. The possibility has energized the political class. They see a cash cow about to jump the fence. "Stanley Works has no right to abandon their obligations as a corporate citizen of this country," mumbled Rep....

    Durbin lacks the profile of a winner April 24, 2002 BY STEVE NEAL, SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST His re-election isn't a done deal. Sen. Richard J. Durbin's potential vulnerability was exposed in the March 19 primary when nearly a third of Democratic voters shunned him. Durbin, 57, who is favored to win a second term in the general election, got the lightest vote among the four slated Democratic candidates who were unopposed in last month's primary. As the sitting U.S. senator, he had the top ballot position and should have led the Democratic ticket. But he fell short of those expectations....
