Maria Bartiromo Versus Michael Moore

on
I woke up in Milwaukee this morning to see Maria Bartiromo on Morning Joe challenging Michael Moore on the subject of capitalism.  Go Maria!! I had to laugh out loud listening to Mr. Moore freaking out about the top 1% of the population owning 99% of the wealth in the country.  It’s not that I […] [Read More]

I was flummoxed, bowled over and plain stupefied as I read the article by Eric Dash and Jack Healy on the front page of the business section of the New York Times this past Saturday.   On the surface, the story simply defies belief.  Beleaguered Citigroup has been forced to execute a fire sale of its […] [Read More]

“Let Them Eat Cake”

That’s exactly what Congress appears to be saying to the American people with its over the top $500 million for the purchase of eight new airplanes that will shuttle them – senators and representatives – back and forth around the world.    While they excoriate private sector executives for using corporate jets for business trips […] [Read More]

Greenwich Hospital Emergency Room – THANK YOU!!

on
Last evening I had an experience at Greenwich Hospital that made me realize I don’t want ANY Government interference in the service provided by the wonderful, caring people who work at Greenwich Hospital.  My 15 year old son very suddenly experienced an earache that was excruciatingly painful.  After unsuccessfully trying to reach our ENT doctor after […] [Read More]
