About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Miller Trumps O'Reilly Interview With BO

For anyone who did not see Bill O'Reilly's pre-Super Bowl interview with BO or did not see it in its entirety (including the portions that were not part of the live broadcast) please click on this link .

The interview was seen live by over 19 million people & many more over the internet. It has generated much controversy as being anywhere from too soft to too hard. Since FNC is such a lightning rod for controversy please watch & judge for yourself - which is always the best policy.

Laura Ingraham found fault with the last part of the interview when Bill asked BO if he thought FNC could do a better job reporting the news. Carol hated this soft-ball meaningless question also.

But it was Dennis Miller who trumped the interview process - "It seems to me that it's important to you (Bill) that he (BO) likes you, but that's not what I'm looking for in an interview with Barack Obama. I want him to come in without a tie and leave in a neck brace. When he's meeting O'Reilly, I want him to dread it beforehand, I want him to sweat bullets in the middle of it, and afterwards I want him to say to Axelrod, what did I just say? With Barack Obama, it doesn't come down to whether I like him or not - I see this country as lean and mean, and I want the citizens to be self-reliant. He sees it as soft and he's willing that some of the citizens be dependent. I would have said, Mr. President, there's a big game later today - do you think the winning team should give the losing team enough of their points so that it's a tie because that's fair?"


  1. I missed this segment with Dennis Miller. Thanks for sharing....

  2. I did not think much of the interview at all. Miller did have a good question. BO knows how to point his finger.

  3. I watched the interview. I think when it comes to BO, Bill has a tendency to back off so as not to appear to be unfair. Dennis Miller made a good point. The question he posed that Bill should have asked was a gem. Too bad Bill didn't think of it.
