Randy Smith: To Deflate Or Not?

I have always despised cheaters. Even the ones who just "bend" the rules a bit to gain an unfair advantage. It seems every sport has always had a few that simply could not compete without an edge. Pure talent is never enough. It appears the New England Patriots fall into that category. In 2007, the Pats and their head coach Bill Bellichek were caught spying on an opponent, which ...

Obama Doesn't Want You To Save For College

Over the past few decades, federal aid for post-secondary education has decreased and transitioned largely from grants to guaranteed student loans.   At the same time, the cost of college has far exceeded the cost of inflation creating a situation in which college has become less affordable and causing students to pile up debt that is at an all-time high.   This debt ...

Roy Exum: Value-Added Friendship

I need to take you through the back door on this one because it is a story that my friend Sandy Pohfal just sent me from Texas. Sandy happens to know Dr. John C. Dealey, a business-consultant wizard in Dallas whose advisory councils have made folks a lot of money. In turn, Dr. Dealey knows a guy he’ll only refer to as “Raymond.” Of all the guys I just mentioned, you need to focus ... (click for more)
