The Information Center – Some Final Thoughts on Super Bowl LI

    Overshadowing all the events taking place in Washington, the rest of the country and around the world – at least as far as people in New England are concerned (and yes, maybe the folks in Atlanta too) – is of course last Sunday’s Super Bowl. So, for this week and maybe just a […]

The Information Center – Protestors and their Selective Compassion

    As Americans, the majority of us understand and cherish our First Amendment rights, which certainly include the right to protest, if we believe something is not as it should be. But many of us have a difficult time believing in the sincerity of some of those protesting, as of late. I call it […]

The Information Center: “America First” – Is There a Problem with This?

               As someone who did not vote for Donald Trump in the primaries, I’m sure glad I did so in the final election. That was reinforced in a big way listening to his speech at the Inauguration last Friday. And that, along with his main campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again”, had millions […]

The Information Center – Depicting Cops as Pigs was wrong in the 60’s and still is today

  It was amazing watching the activity taking place in the Halls of Congress last week. A member of the Congressional Black Caucus put up, in a public area of the building, not his own office, but a painting depicting police officers as pigs. That’s right – pigs wearing police uniforms were attacking people in […]

The Information Center – Dear Hollywood Celebs: No one cares what you think. By John Ciccone

  Let’s have a show of hands.  How many readers out there have had enough of Hollywood’s so called elites and their preaching speeches during their award shows? From the feedback we get here, the thousands of postings flooding social media sites all over the country, and in public forums pretty much everywhere, it seems […]

The Information Center – Some ‘Champions of Tolerance’ are Anything But

  ‘Tolerance’. This is a word that is tossed around like a football constantly. Say the wrong thing to the wrong person, disagree politically with someone, or even about what your favorite sport  is with some of the super sensitive souls, and you are intolerant.  And of course, you’re a racist, a bigot and the […]

The Information Center – Merry Christmas to ALL

  Whew!  The election of 2016 is finally over, finished, done with. Most sane Americans have now either happily or grudgingly resigned themselves to the fact that our new president will be Donald Trump. Those are the sane ones.  Then of course, there are Whoopie Goldberg and the other ‘ladies’ of The View, CNN and […]

The Information Center – Yes, It’s OK To Say Merry Christmas

The Christmas season is in full swing to the delight of most, but not all of course. Checking the news and reports from around the country, it seems that the effort on the part of those who would ban the whole idea of the holiday/Holy day completely, still exist, but not like it used to […]

The Information Center – Nice Job Vets!/Dolly Parton and the Tennessee Fire Victims?

  It’s always a pleasure when there is good news to report. In this column, last week, half of it was devoted to making mention of the veterans and their supporters that descended on Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.  The purpose as you know was to protest the decision made to no longer fly the […]

The Information Center – What Does it Tell Us about those who Praise Castro?

The news of Fidel Castro’s death has caused grief and mourning among the segment of the population that we’ve come to expect would be saddened by a brutal Communist tyrannical dictator’s passing. Hollywood, the main stream news media, Jesse Jackson, Colin Kaepernick and several liberal Democrat politicians are certainly on that list. Has Cambridge and […]
