Why a Larger Field of GOP Candidates in the Televised Debates Hurts the GOP

Fox News Channel is off the mark in deciding to only allow the top ten Republicans into the opening presidential debate in August. They should only allow the top seven into the debate. Seven is not only a lucky number but the maximum allowable to do what these debates should do for Republicans. The goal […]

Meet Allen West Thursday April 3 at Valley Forge Military Academy

One of the things I enjoy most about talk radio is meeting the newsmakers face to face. While the majority of my talk radio interviews are by phone, you cannot take a full measure of a person when they are just a voice on the other end of the line. You can gain remarkable insight […]

My Taxpayer of the Year Award

As I write this, I am looking at my W-2 and 1099 tax forms for 2012. Every year I bring them to my tax preparer and as his calculator works overtime, I anxiously await the “damage.” During tax season, millions of Americans go through that same tax anxiety. But this year, the anxiety is going […]

How About a Real Contract with Congress?

Last week I watched the swearing-in ceremonies with the new Congress. When I was growing up, I was taught that public service was a noble endeavor. It felt right to respect and admire our elected members to Congress. The U.S. Capitol was, of course, “The People’s House.” But sadly, as I watched the ceremonies on […]

It’s About the Small Business Economy, Stupid

The past election had a lot of campaign rhetoric about so-called “wars” against women, against this group and against that group. But there was one “war” that seemed to be largely overlooked in the election: the war against entrepreneurs and small businesses. In this war, the battle line is pretty clear. Government does not recognize […]

If you listen to my show, you know I do not just believe in sitting in an isolated broadcast studio and talk about issues with you. To me, it’s important to be out in the community, be active and encourage listeners to take action. If the extent of your participating in our democracy is just listening to […]

Talk Radio: The Most Important and Overlooked Election X-Factor

Years ago, one of the senior leaders in the Pennsylvania Republican Party reached out to me to help promote the campaign of the GOP candidate for governor. The campaign was stuck in the mud and the candidate’s message was not reaching the voters. I was happy to help. Number one, for selfish professional reasons, as […]

Dom’s Mail Bag: A Reader’s Open Letter to the President

I receive a lot of e-mails from readers of this blog. A little while back, I talked about President Obama’s view of entrepreneurship and how it ties into the notion of “American Exceptionalism” (most times it feels like “American Apology-ism.” This week I received an e-mail from Gene Jardel of Pine Branch, New Jersey.

Classroom Discussions on the Election: Education or Indoctrination

As a former teacher, I have lamented about the fact that civics has all but disappeared from our nation’s classrooms. Civics illiteracy is a real issue and it prevents kids from understanding the importance of engaged citizenship. Of course, I should be careful what I wish for. Every four years, the presidential election brings out […]

Chick-fil-A Controversey Ruffling Some Political Feathers

Last week, I wrote a column for The Philadelphia Daily News about my view of the Chick-fil-A controversy. I have no problem with people objecting to Chick-fil-A’s CEO Dan Cathy expressing his personal opinions on gay marriage. I have no problem with people voting with their wallet and choosing to take their business elsewhere. I […]
