I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...

(Written by: @JeremyWilson412) I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up in a shark costume convinced it was a dolphin costume. I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up who hooked up with Nick at Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith

Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more


A Fight to the Bitter End: My Take on the 2nd Presidential Debate

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Politics | Leave a comment

Well, that second debate was something else.  It looked, sounded, and felt more like watching a boxing match than a Town Hall forum, as President Obama and Governor Romney went toe-to-toe with each other more often than appealing to the undecided voters on stage with them or the millions of supporters and potential voters watching at home.  So who won? Who lost? What impact does it actually have on the election going forward? Here’s my take…

Election 2012 Update: VP Debate, Current Polling, & What Comes Next

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Politics | 1 Comment

As most people thought and as some people (like me) hoped, Romney’s resounding first debate victory radically reshaped the 2012 election.  However, the presidential election has never been more up in the air than it is at this very moment.  Romney has closed the gap in national polling, favorability ratings, and swing-state polls.  Multiple states that were leaning Obama are now back in the toss-up category. President Obama has spent the entire weekend doing debate prep. And the race’s shakeup sent Joe Biden went on an aggressive, cackling spree in the Vice-President debate.  Anything could happen. This election is going to come down to the wire. Here’s what you need to know…

We have ourselves a race! – My Recap of First 2012 Presidential Debate

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Politics | 5 Comments

I’ve said it in tweet after tweet, Facebook status after Facebook status, and blog post after blog post… this election is not over. Not by a long shot. And this fact has never been more true in the more than 16 months since Mitt Romney officially announced his candidacy in New Hampshire on June 2, 2011.  Contrary to what you may be reading in hopeful Facebook statuses and tweets from your conservative and liberal friends on Facebook, this election has just begun. We have ourselves a race.  And during the next month, through the messy, ugly, and at-times-annoying process we call representative democracy, Americans have a choice.  Sure, this choice is an important one for our country, our security, our economy, and our freedoms. But America is stronger and more resilient than any single Presidential election. Thank God and our Founding Fathers for that.

Everything You Need to Know about the Last Two Months of 2012 Election!

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Politics | 4 Comments

Well, the 2012 Presidential Election is less than two months away.  Polling is a dead heat tie.  (Check RealClearPolitics’ polling average between now and election for the aggregation of the most recent polls to let you know where the race currently stands.)  The conventions are now over. (Check out my breakdowns of RNC Night #1 & RNC Night #2 if you missed them!) The final sprint to the finish has begun.  However, the current state of the race and the strategies of both candidates and parties down the stretch are highly influenced by the campaign strategies of the last few months and the conventions the past two weeks.  Only one thing is certain (as long as you don’t believe the pomp and circumstance on Facebook and Twitter from the cheerleaders on both sides): this race is far from over, either ticket could win, and it will likely come down to the wire. Buckle up! Here’s everything you need to know about the conventions, debates, and strategies moving forward…

Everything You Need to Know about 2012 RNC – Night 2

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Politics | Leave a comment

Once the first night of the 2012 Republican National Convention was canceled, the large majority of the speakers I looked forward to landed on Tuesday night, Night #1.  As I recapped the speeches of Mia Love, Ted Cruz, Artur Davis, Ann Romney, and Chris Christie in my RNC Night 1 Recap, I realized there were only a handful of speeches left that I was looking forward to.  Night 1 was all about the GOP’s rising stars, young political leaders around our country who are the Republican Party of tomorrow.  Statesmen and stateswomen of all colors and creeds.  Night 1 was about the future of our party.

Night 2 brought us a lot of reflection from past standard-bearers and leaders in our party. But the night belonged to the two people that created the most buzz as potential Vice-Presidential picks.
