    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot Let’s get this clear right from the start: this is not a defense of Chris Christie.

  • Reagan still matters

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot It’s been 26 years since Ronald Reagan left office. Yet, Reagan and his presidency still loom large.

Inspired by his father’s […]


  • Why this? And why now?

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot Well, here we go again. Some of our non-Catholic friends (and even more than a few of our Catholic friends) have been asking us: “Isn’t the Pope infallible when he speaks via an encyclical and doesn’t his encyclical on climate change (or what used to be called global warming) carry […]


  • OPINION: Tattoos and Summer DO NOT Mix!

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot Do you tattoo? If so, why? Are you trying to make a statement? Is it part of an emotional commitment? Or did you just decide to get tattooed on a whim or a dare? Whatever the reason, I don’t get it. Still, it’s obvious to me that others are onto […]

  • Christie And Obama: The Media’s Double-Standard

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot So, let’s see if we can sort this all out. When Barack Obama is questioned about his involvement with unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, it’s no big deal because Ayers is “just a guy who lived in the neighborhood.” And when the subject of Rev. Jeremiah Wright comes up (because […]

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot When asked what Americans might do to heal the racial divide in our nation the esteemed actor Morgan Freeman once answered in three words: “Stop talking about it.” It does make a lot of sense, doesn’t it? In the purest meaning of the term, if we were really color blind […]


  • The Smuttiest Night In Washington DC?

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot It’s just another one of those things that’s coarsening the culture. But, this time it’s particularly unsettling because it’s happening at the very highest, vaulted levels of our government.

But, let’s take a closer look at this: Liberal Democrats have now thoroughly rebranded themselves as “progressives.” As such, they’ve embraced a movement that is […]

  • The Democrat Party’s ‘Hidden’ Mold Infestation

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot So now the moldy, not-so-little secret is out. Surely you must know what I’m talking about. Well, maybe not. Because this was a quite well-kept secret for longer than it deserved to be. So, maybe you don’t know after all and maybe I’ll just have to come out and say […]


  • Saint Joseph’s Day – It’s True Meaning!

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot St. Joseph’s Day is a big Feast for Italians because in the Middle Ages, God, through St. Joseph’s intercessions, Sicilians were saved from a very serious drought.
