The Style of Ronald Reagan

Include Gary Johnson 10/12/11
A New Hampshire poll shows both former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson at 1% yet the Bloomberg / Washington Post debate in New Hampshire includes little Rickie and excludes a two-term Governor whose job creation record is better than Governor Rick Perry or Governor Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney Chameleon 10/12/11
I am a Libertarian Republican and have written in favor of both same sex marriage and abortion rights. Mitt Romney once agreed with me. In his 1994 race for the US Senate, he supported gay marriage and abortion on demand. I was there and I remember. Romney's opponent in the Massachusetts Republican primary, supply-side banker John Lakian, firmly recalls Romney's stout liberalism on social issues.

Mitt Romney, Hypocrite 9/26/11
This column is about hypocrisy. As a libertarian, I support marriage equality for gays and abortion rights although I admit I have struggled mightily with the latter and my views have changed after the birth of my grandchildren. I have always been and remain a Second Amendment man.

The FOX Debate 9/26/11
One of the key reasons why Governor Rick Perry faired poorly in the FOX Florida Debate was the gang up of other "conservative" candidates on Perry, the front runner. This, of course, plays into Mitt Romney's hands but does nothing to enhance the candidacies of Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann or even "moderate" Jon Huntsman Jr.

Of Charlie Rangel, John Haggerty and Cy Vance 9/26/11
Congressman Charles Rangel, who is guilty of tax evasion and illegally having three rent controlled apartments but was prosecuted for neither, unveiled a stunning oil portrait of himself that will hang forever in the House Ways and Means Committee hearing room in Washington, DC.

French Toast 9/12/11
A brewing battle surrounding disgraced former Florida GOP Chair Jim Greer, and who knew what among the party insiders, has so far come down to "he said-she said".

Ed Rollins Never Disappoints 9/6/11
There are a few things you can always count on. The sun will always rise, water will always be wet and Veteran Republican operative Ed Rollins will always attack his own candidate once it becomes it clear they cannot win. Now he's done it again.

Jim Greer's Blackmail Play 9/6/11
The STONEzone was the first publication to report on former Florida Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer's lavish spending of party money to enhance his lifestyle. Greer spent regularly on five star resorts, luxury charter aircraft, enormous bills at gourmet restaurants, tickets to sporting events ,imported wines and cigars, spa services and stretch limos. Consequently we were not surprised when Greer was arrested after it was revealed that he had hooked up a phony fund-raising in order to embezzle even more Republican Party of Florida ( RPOF) funds.

StoneZone Back From Vacation 8/25/11
The Stonezone is back from a brief vacation. Now tanned , rested and ready, the observations and punditry resume.

Vance Record Will Draw A Primary 8/25/11
The disastrous record of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance will likely result in a serious Democratic primary challenge to his re-election.

Spitzer Sued For $90 Million 8/25/11
As Attorney General, Eliot Spizter blackmailed insurance giant Marsh & McLennan into acquiring Kroll and Associates, a private investigative firm, at a greatly inflated price. He also required M&M to hire his protégé, Michael Cherkasky, as CEO despite his complete lack of any insurance industry experience.

Newsmax Publisher Considering Senate Race 8/1/11
Nick Loeb, the local banking scion and boyfriend of of Modern Family TV star Sofia Vergara, is once again considering jumping into the Florida Republican US Senate Primary. But now a second multi-millionaire who could potentially self-fund a Senate bid is also seriously considering the race. Conservative Publisher Christopher J. Ruddy, the owner of Newsmax is considering a run and could reportedly put as much as $25 million into a Senate bid.

Why We Lost The War On Drugs 8/1/11
Last month, 40 years after Richard Nixon declared America's war on drugs, the UN's Global Commission on Drug Policy declared it a failure and said that "policies need to change now." Two bizarre cases from neuroscience help explain why it hasn't worked.

Is Cy Vance, Jr, Incompetent? 7/12/11
In a 2008 letter to the editor, when he was merely an ambitious lawyer and not yet Manhattan's District Attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr unknowingly wrote a prescient warning to his future self: "Success must be measured not simply by the number of convictions achieved by a prosecutor's office, but also by a prosecutor's ability to effect long-term crime reduction."

A Tale Of Two Cys: Colin v Haggerty 7/6/11
The collapse of the case against French banker and politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn has focused attention on the competence of the Manhattan District Attorney. Cyrus Vance Jr. may have planted the seeds of his next legal defeat long before the DSK case, egged on by Assistant District Attorney Dan Alonzo - the same assistant who pushed for a rush to judgment in the DSK case. After just 37 days in office, he indicted John Haggerty Jr., a well-liked and much respected Republican political operative.
