Today Beyonce Knowles has the video of the day on YouTube. It’s not one of those glitzy videos that we are accustomed to from her but rather a video promoting health and exercise. Mrs. Knowles has teamed up with Michelle Obama to help encourage children to be physically active. To do so, Beyonce remixed her [...]

A while back I wrote a blog on the best websites to learn about healthcare reform. The websites mentioned were official sites with lots of information from both sides of the political spectrum. But what would be better than hearing it directly from the horse’s mouth? I’m not sure how many American citizens know about the White House-backed YouTube Channel called Citizen Tube.

In this environment, poor business decisions are inevitable because political turf and inter-office relationships were more important than the bottom-line business results of the company. It was my own living hell.
Dear President Obama, I have written to you before through this blog and through your various websites. It is now 30 days since you were sworn in as our Chief Executive. While it is way too early to pass judgment, I have to say that what I have seen so far has dashed a great deal of hope for me and confirmed my fears.
Let's get this straight. The economy really sucks big time. We just had the worst GDP number since the early 80's. Unemployment is north of 7% and heading inexorably towards double digits. The stock market is down 40% and is actually down over the past 11 years. We are sending hundreds of billions to our enemies for oil.
Today on Face the Nation, Bob Schiefer of CBS News Interviewed Vice President Joe Biden. Biden recently returned from a trip to Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. During the interview, without any prompting or questioning from Schiefer, Biden said "... the surge has worked ..."
