Those Who Forget History

Once upon a time the word Nazi was used to describe members of the National Socialist Worker’s German Party, the followers of Adolf Hitler who committed terrible atrocities leading up to and during World War II, including attempted genocide and state-sponsored murder on a horrific scale.

But in the short time since the 2016 United States Presidential election, the term Nazi has morphed from this very specific definition to a label from the left to use in its attempt to take down anyone whose views & beliefs fall anywhere on the political spectrum outside of the extreme left (which, interestingly enough, is precisely where Hitler and his total government control, police-state leftist Democratic Socialists existed).

Anti-abortion? Nazi. Want secure borders? …

Heroes Finance 101: Understanding Retirement Plans

Gone are the days of our parents and grandparents in which retirement after working for a company for twenty years earned you a gold watch, pension and comfortable golden years.  The removal of pension plans from most major companies has angered many, but if you put yourself in the shoes of the owners and/or managers of those companies it makes sense.

Pension plans were created when the average lifespan was decades shorter than they are today, and while breakthroughs in health and medical technology have helped our society by allowing us to live longer and watch our grandchildren grow up, it’s causing great strain on those financial plans which are being pushed longer than ever anticipated.

I’m a rather stubborn

Special Forces in Niger: Commentary from a Former Green Beret Who Helped Start the Mission a Decade Ago

I’ve been watching the news with clenched teeth and a heavy heart for the past few weeks, hearing all of the nonsense regarding the tragedy in Niger and understanding just how juvenile both the “journalists” reporting on the subject and politicians discussing it are.  

I say this because as a US Army Special Forces Medic (18D) I was attached to one of the first ODAs into Niger a decade ago, and wrote about that experience in my book, “Love Me When I’m Gone: The True Story of Life, Love and Loss for a Green Beret in Post-9/11 War,” which was published in 2012.

Heroes Finance 101 : Introduction

What do you know about money, finance, investing and retirement savings?  If you’re like the vast majority of Americans, probably not much.  Do your eyes gloss over when the news starts talking about the economy or someone at your work begins talking about retirement plans?  

Join the club.

I was in your boat not that long ago.  My family left me some money when my grandparents passed away, and even though I had a trust-appointed financial advisor, I had no clue what he was talking about.  He’d recommend stocks and I pretty much just followed him blindly.  And then the internet bubble burst in 2000 and “blue chip” stocks that made up much of my portfolio became worthless overnight.
