My weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, was about the predicament of House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello, the wave of progressives, and the predicament of the Rhode Island GOP.
Rhode Island is in desperate need of leadership that will step up and take the Progressive agenda head-on. For too long, the far-left has schemed to take the people of Rhode Island backwards. They want to move us further away from the pro-family and pro-business reforms our state desperately needs.
A bonus call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, was about the election results.
My weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, was about the arrival of election day.
On Tuesday, you and I have a chance to make a big difference! I am personally encouraging you to vote… to exercise your precious right and to vote for candidates who support a pro-growth, pro-business, and pro-taxpayer agenda!
It’s been almost three decades since we have had balance of power in Rhode Island’s representation of U.S. Senators in Washington DC. Senator John Chafee(R) and Claiborne Pell(D), both highly regarded and respected across party lines, made Rhode Islanders proud at home and in Washington DC.
Time has come for Rhode Island to do it again.
My weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, was about House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello’s challenges, the Democrats (seeming) Trillo promotion, polls, and the state of play in the campaign.
My weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, was about Trillo’s latest issue statements and the Providence Journal’s endorsements.
Many of our differences, even our semantic differences, come down to the question of whether everything aspect of our lives has to be aligned and associated with a political identity.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, about the gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races in Rhode Island.
Our education conundrum: We’ve layered too much mere stuff in the system and created too many incentives for people to advocate against reform.
At the Center, we believe that public workers deserve to know that they now have full freedom to decide whether or not it is in their best interest to pay union dues. That if they choose not to pay, these employees cannot be recriminated against by corrupt union officials.
However we feel about Joe Trillo or his recent behavior, the story of his 1975 altercation raises questions about the kind of society that we want to be.
The madness of our time may result from the general public’s “whoa, there” response to progressives who’ve forgotten the keys of their incremental strategy.
On the American campus, Catholics are forced out of their jobs in the name of presenting a diversity of ideas while hoax papers are published because academics really do believe that identity politics can tell us about the physical universe.
As part of the recent Providence Journal sponsored “Publick Occurrences” panel discussion at RI College, I’d like to share some thoughts I prepared, but did not have the chance to put forth. The event’s premise – “Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?” and the polarization of public discourse – leaves us two factors to consider:
The Kavanaugh hearings have given us a look at what the Left has slowly been doing to those who disagree at the margins and signaled just how close we’ve come to “too late” to oppose them.
Anybody who thinks Fung would be preferable to Raimondo should look askance at the actions of Joe Trillo and Patricia Morgan.
Justin says, “Fire the Providence School Bus Drivers”. Maybe. Fire their union, the Teamsters? Absolutely.
What Teamsters Local 251 are trying to do to the drivers – whose best interest they supposedly represent – borders on criminal. It WOULD be criminal if they had a fiduciary role with regard to their members’ retirement.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, reviewing Whitehouse’s performance at the Kavanaugh hearings and the gubernatorial candidates’ performance at their debate.
We’re in surreal times and should not allow the political fight of the moment to erode the gray areas that allow us to be human.
A female governor who discriminates against school boys for an official contest is fundraising off her unsubstantiated belief in a 50-something-year-old woman’s unsubstantiated claims about an incident from high school
Arguments about the proper interpretation of the Constitution don’t often enough acknowledge that it can be amended.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, digging into some poll results and discussing the early days of the general election.
Who defines what counts as sexual harassment, and does it have to be a single standard for every environment?
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, recapping and analyzing results from the primary.
What do adults call this feeling of boredom with all the tasks that must be done?
The persistence of that old 9/11 feeling and a reminder of long-ago friends raises thoughts about balancing what is there now with what used to be.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WNRI 1380 AM/95.1 FM show, this week, checking in on the state of play before and paths forward from Rhode Island’s upcoming primary.
Tiverton resident Donna Cook notes that the General Assembly is too willing to impose difficulties on working Rhode Islanders while the Town Council is happy to put taxpayer dollars under its control.
