GALLERY: Behind The Scenes Of The Jerry Doyle Show

When you listen to a radio show you typically form a picture in your mind of what the host and their studio look like and if you listen to a show long enough you will start to get a pretty good idea. What do you think – does reality match your imagination? If you haven’t yet, sign […]

Is the Ray Rice Incident a Watershed Moment on Domestic Violence?

Is the Ray Rice Incident a Watershed Moment on Domestic Violence?

The video of Ray Rice knocking his then-fiancée Janay Palmer unconscious and dragging her from a casino elevator has by now gone viral.  The first sin was the violence itself.  The second sin was the NFL attempting to dismiss it by issuing a Rice paltry two-game suspension as “punishment,” bringing into sharp focus how we […]

2014 VW Tiguan: German engineering that comes up short

EpicTimes.com

In recent years when traditional compact SUV have become increasingly larger and larger, on the other hand, the VW Tiguan remains small. This compact SUV has rounded lines similar to those of its big brother the Touareg. The design is simple and in my opinion somewhat uninspired. My test vehicle is front-wheel drive variant of […]

ISIS declares war. Obama declares a “significant counterterrorism operation”

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), or whatever other name they are using (ISIL), has declared war on the US and has already beheaded two American journalists.  In response the Obama administration has declared a “significant counter terrorism operation” according to Secretary of State John Kerry.  Is this a good strategy? Or is […]

The Miracle and Morality of the Market

One of the great fallacies arrogantly believed in by those in political power is the notion that they can know enough to manage and command the lives of everyone in society with better results than if people are left to live their own lives as they freely choose. The fact is, there is far more […]

The 2015 Madza6 gets a 10 for Value

OK I will admit it.  I just plain like Mazda products.  Over the years, from Mazda President Jim O’Sullivan down, all have all been a pleasure to work with on my nationally syndicated automotive radio programs.  But beyond the personal reasons, it is about the passion for products that oozes out every designer, engineer, or […]

Why is it so important to have a balanced budget?

Why is it so important to have a balanced budget?

Representative Marcia Fudge (D- Ohio) recently spoke at the Akron Roundtable luncheon.  During that speech she asked “Why is it so important to have a balanced budget? We haven’t balanced the budget but one time in the last 50 years.” (Actually we had budget surpluses in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001). But what is the […]

Proud to be an American: What Should It Mean?

America! For more than two hundred years the word has represented hope, opportunity, a second chance, and freedom. In America the accident of a man’s birth did not serve as an inescapable weight that dictated a person’s fate or that of his family. The individual owned his own life and was free to shape it […]

Jobs Report Continues to Disappoint

The Bureau of Labor Statistics just reported that the economy added 142,000 jobs in August.  This figure was about 100,000 below economists’ expectations and about 80,000 below the average gains in the last five months.  Is this a trend or just a one month fluke? The consensus view seems to be that the August number […]
