Tweet (Akiit.com) Last week in Hagerstown, Maryland, the Secret Service detained a man outside a town hall meeting. He was holding a sign that said death to President Obama, Michelle Obama and their kids. The man said he came to debate health care but couldn’t get in because it was too crowded. That same week, […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) Last week Kenneth Gladney, a black conservative, was assaulted outside a health care town hall meeting hosted by Missouri Democrat Rep. Russ Carnahan.

Tweet (Akiit.com) There’s an age-old adage that states, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” As it is in life, so it is in politics. A political entity’s ability to measure and influence public opinion plays a significant role in its ability to further its agenda. Messaging is the […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) I have attended far too many funerals of young African American men whose lives have been extinguished – denied the right to experience the full breadth of life – at the hands of someone who looked like them, from the same tribe, who share the same blood, African American blood. I attended yet […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) The current philosophy of governance – and this includes governance of the democrat and republican variety—is that there is tremendous capacity in government to better the lives of average folks; it is the power of administrative policy that can end poverty, cure disease, and ultimately save the planet.

Tweet (Akiit.com) Racism is not an either/or proposition. When did the R-word become as offensive as the N-word? During the presidential campaign, then-Sen. Joe Biden made an off-the-cuff observation that his rival, then-Sen. Barack Obama was “… clean …” and “… articulate …” Then Don Imus slurred the Rutgers University’s women’s basketball team. Then the […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) I was as shocked as the rest of America to hear that Michael Vick has been signed by the Philadelphia Eagles. Although I’ve always supported Vick’s human right to fairness, I never thought he’d be back on the field so fast. I was honestly happy to see him get a second chance, but […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) I first spotted the ghoulish, macabre face on the poster with the word “socialism” slapped underneath it on wallboards and on an occasional freeway onramp girder around Los Angeles last April. From time to time the poster would pop up (really more a crude handbill) on walls and even stuck to billboards. It […]
