Making Sense: The Day of Reckoning Arrives

By Michael Reagan
They got him. Put a couple of slugs in his face. Then they dumped his body in the sea -- something for the fish, which don't much care what they eat, to feed on. No matter how you look at it, this was a masterful stroke by a group of Navy Seals who went about their business with great skill and steely nerves. Naturally, great credit went to the president who stuck with an operation that was set in motion by his predecessor, George W. Bush. We're told that President Obama not only approved ...

Seeing Unseen Solutions

By Michael McMillan
I recently closed a speech with this challenge:"You can live each day in a world filled with "problems,"; or rise each morning and embrace a world filled with unseen solutions… eager for you to find them. The decision is yours… both worlds exist. The one you choose is the one you will create."; Afterwards, during a Q&A session, a young man remarked,"Your presentation was awesome, but how do you go about seeing unseen solutions?";What a great question! In a nutshell, here's my answer: Seeing "unseen ...

Effective Ways to Promote Your Speaker

By Michael Smallbone
You've Found the Right Speaker, Now Fill the Room! Chances are, the reason most of our members renew their dues each year is because they can't afford not to. Associations provide the networking and educational tools people need to be successful, and much of this dynamic takes place at the meetings. The importance of finding the right speaker to facilitate the learning process can't be overestimated, but promoting your speaker once you've found them is just as critical. Here are some tips from the ...

He Talks, We Listen

By Shawn Hanks
The following is a profile article that NJ Savvy Magazine did on Scott Rasmussen. From his perch in Asbury Park, pollster Scott Rasmussen keeps a sharp eye on the nation. From economics and politics to Bruce Springsteen and Snooki, he tracks trends, compiling and analyzing data daily. Before elections, we all want to know how our candidates are faring, but do we really need to know what people think the rest of the time, about anything, from what car we'll buy next and our vacation plans to Obama Care and Governor ...

Making Sense: No CRs in 2012

By Michael Reagan
Republicans acted on the message voters sent in the 2010 congressional elections when they elected more than enough members of the House to control that body; they tackled the scandal of out-of-control spending and the voters responded. So far they have shoved a poison pill down the throats of spending-happy House Democrats, chopping a cool $38 billion from the 2011 federal budget. They now face a new challenge in enacting a budget for 2012 by passing the one introduced by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., which ...

Making Sense: The Great Budget Train Wreck

By Michael Reagan
The current furor over the national budget is ample proof of the fact that federal budgets should be completed in time and based on reality, and not based on welfare-state politics. Instead, Congress keeps kicking the can down the road by enacting so-called CRs (Continuing Resolutions) that have become nothing more than legislation that allows Congress to enact all the legislation they could not get through standing on their own. Example: the infamous Boland Amendments (1982 and 1984), which ...

Making Sense: A So-So Presidential Speech

By Michael Reagan
If President Obama's address to the nation the other night was meant to keep the American people up-to-date on the situation in the Middle East, it missed its mark, leaving us in a state of confusion. For starters, the president implicitly limited America's proven exceptionalism. We may be exceptional, he admits, but not in his opinion nearly enough to maintain our lead position as protectors of the rights of all people everywhere. Why not? Why can't we remain the world's number-one champion ...
