Quiet Strength

As someone who lives in Steeler Country I have great memories of Tony Dungy as both a player and a coach.  I think the best way to describe the impact that he had was the fact that he only played a few years here yet I remember his play.  It was always noted about how “football” smart he was and that he would certainly become a coach and though his playing career was rather short he soon became the coach of former teammates who were much older.  In Quiet Strength  Tony Dungy shares his journey as a player, coach, Super Bowl champion , and most important to him, father and man of God. 

Entitlement

The City of Pittsburgh generally lands in the top ten when a list of “the most livable cities” is created.  In the most recent poll by Forbes, Pittsburgh landed in the tenth spot.  Having lived here I cannot think of a better place to live and raise a family.  My wife and I did decide to move out of the city, however, for two primary reasons; Pittsburgh’s excessive taxes and poor schools. 

It is an interesting contrast to be one of the top ten most livable communities while the City is in receivership because they spend too much money and the schools are poor.  Pittsburgh is, however, blessed by having great universities, phenomenal health care facilities, great cultural amenities, and world champion sports teams.

Trickle…Yes MSM It’s Starting!

leaky_faucetEarlier in the month in my posting, Groundswell, I provided a case that there is a true groundswell of opposition to excessive government.  I will admit that it started as more of a anti-liberal Democrat movement, but the ranks have been joined by many others.  I believe that this groundswell has turned into a trickle (this is a positive development) as we are seeing the main stream media starting to open up and do their jobs although still to a limited extent.

I believe, and we should remember that this is a gathering storm against politicians of all party affiliations.
