In recent years I retired from a career that included being a practicing CPA and later President of two commercial finance companies. I am also a Past-Chairman of the international trade organization, Commercial Finance Association. When I retired, I decided to develop my love of learning into a hobby. While working and raising a family, there just wasn't the time for me to develop anything more than intuitive opinions about important current topics and political issues.

So, quite naturally during retirement, this interest developed into a fair amount of research and reading about important societal, international, and political issues. While this process helped me to more fully develop my opinions, I realized that I didn't actually finish learning until I could summarize and write down my conclusions. A few people asked to read some of my opinions. Then a few others showed interest. And soon there was a group of interested (mostly) readers.

I love doing this, so I have created this website as a storehouse of all I have written during the past few years. Some things (not many) get published in national publications. My ideas and opinions come from a conservative perspective. Whether my readers agree or disagree, my goal is that they at least understand my position on the various topics.

The best way to describe my process is to say that sometime I gather others' opinions and add some of my ideas; and other times I gather others' ideas and add some of my opinions.

I believe I have something worthwhile to share. If you consider my opinions worthy, feel free to copy and forward any article to others, or to politicians you may wish to influence. Or, you are welcome to any of my ideas for use in your own opinions, letters, or reports.
