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 […]

I have encountered a lot of trolls online and in talk radio.

Is It Time to Strike Back Against Internet and Talk Radio Trolls?

I went into talk radio with my eyes wide open. It’s not a profession for the feint of heart. Every day my radio show on WPHT 1210-AM is three hours of lightning-rod, controversial topics. People get quite passionate and opinionated. You get angry callers, letter writers and what we call in the business- “cranks.” But […]

New Feature: My Favorite Books and Authors

Here is a picture in the “nerve center” of Dom Giordano Radio Headquarters. My work desk at WPHT 1210 Radio show just a small portion of the books I get from publishers, publicists and authors seeking media coverage or a radio interview.

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 […]

My New Year’s Resolutions for 2013

When I taught high school, I preached the importance of having goals to my students. At the start of the school year and at New Year’s, I stressed how setting goals plays a big part in your success. I still make goals and success plans for myself. I actually have an archive of sorts of […]

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 […]
