Vote for Terry

In a previous post, I said I had not heard from the Lee Terry campaign about the statement I was asked to make about voting for Terry. At Lee's request, we met today and he graciously asked to use the statement. Onward and upward. Click below to read the statement.

Why I Am Voting for Lee Terry

Some pro-life friends asked me to endorse Republican Lee Terry. They are worried that conservatives won't vote for Terry and he'll lose to pro-choice Democrat Brad Ashford. I said I could not endorse Terry. An endorsement is a seal of approval. I said I would explain why I am voting for Terry. I submitted my explanation to the Terry campaign September 12. As of today I have not heard from the Terry campaign, but that campaign or any other entity is welcome to use my statement, which you can see by clicking below.

Fix Immigration in Home Countries

I recently traveled to Guatemala with my wife and four Guatemala-born children. I developed some thoughts about immigration, wrote 'em up, and submitted them to the Omaha World-Herald as a column. The OWH rejected it. Click below if you want to read it.

Nebraska Football : Reality Check

Stories about the bowl victory over Georgia said Coach Pelini was not willing to resurrect his “Nebraska is back and we’re here to stay!” declaration made after the 2009 bowl victory. Why is Nebraska NOT back after 6 years of a coach making SEC money?

Message to Tea Party (and anyone else with a conscience)

Are you still going to have Congressman Lee Terry as a headliner at Tea Party events? Click below for my take on the debt ceiling deal.

This Needs to Be Examined

The term "excessive force" is used in the label for this video. I will wait on a conclusion until I learn all the facts, but what I see and hear looks terrible.

Don't Analyze It; Just Enjoy It!

Regular KFAB listener and sometime KFAB caller L.A. provided this chuckler produced by a friend of hers. I suppose one could try to make connections between characters and personalities, but why bother? In a campaign that has become heavy and intense with an extra layer of unexpected controversy, let's briefly revel in some silliness.

Alliance Not Involved in Smearing Stothert

The Omaha Alliance for the Private Sector has nothing to do with the recent slams on Councilwoman and mayoral candidate Jean Stothert.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

We're on the one road,
Sharing the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where.
We're on the one road,
It may be the wrong road,
But we're together now who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
Dublin, Belfast, Cork, and Donegal.
We're on the one road swinging along,
Singing a soldier's song.

The Operative Word Is "Joy"

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum. That's Latin for: I announce to you a great joy. It's how the introduction of a new pope begins. That's what you saw bubbling up in St. Peter's Square: pure joy. The guy on the balcony is as close as we get to God in this life. He's a sinner, but he's our link to Peter and thus to the One who commissioned Peter to lead the church. Viva il Papa.

Pardon a Proud Papa

That's our son, Oto, on the right side of the picture, kneeling at the communion rail at the Mass celebrated by the cardinals before they entered the Sistine Chapel for the conclave on Tuesday. The picture was at I need some space space space space space.
We think that's Oto beneath the arrow. Only a mother's radar was able to detect it. The picture was at . .. need space space space space space space.

Oto, wearing a blue jacket and waving an American flag, can be seen at 1:15 and 2:42. The original video from the Vatican Television Center disappeared. This is from YouTube.

Pope of Firsts (Our Son Was There!)

The first Francis. The first non-European. The first Latin American. The first Jesuit. I wonder if he intends to honor, invoke, and emulate Francis of Assisi or his Jesuit forebear, Francis Xavier. Maybe both.

Stand with Rand

I hate the filibuster, but I loved U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) standing up for the Constitution.

Market Numbers Hide Truth

"We're the healthiest horse in the glue factory." That's Creighton University economics professor Ernie Goss on KFAB today quoting former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) quoting fellow debt commission leader Erskine Bowles, former Clinton White House chief of staff and nationally prominent Democrat, on how robust financial market indicators can hide the true state of the nation's overall, long-term fiscal situation.

R.I.P. Andrew Breitbart

I saw this speech live June 18, 2011, at the RightOnline convention in Minneapolis. I had dismissed the guy as a smart-aleck. I underestimated him. He died a year ago today. I wish he was still alive.

Today on Scott Voorhees (Pack of Lies)

I'm guest-hosting. Chuck Hagel had to scramble to apologize for criticizing an aggressively gay nominee for an ambassadorship more than a decade ago. The federal Defensive of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8 face court challenges. Where are we as a society on homosexuality and same-sex marriage?

Nebraska Football: No, Seriously, Pelini Has to Go

How many times can a coach making $3 million say after a debacle of a game: "I'm shocked, we didn't execute, I don't know why, and I don't know what to do about it"?
