Author Interview: Patrick Dorinson and It’s Nut Cuttin’ Time

 

ContactPatrickABOUT PATRICK DORINSON

Patrick Dorinson is a veteran of the political wars, radio talk show host and commentator who unlike many so-called pundits, has actually been in the arena and has the battle scars to prove it. He has been on both sides of the aisle and in the aisle itself, having worked over the last 25 year for Republicans and Democrats in both politics and government.

He now is a proud independent and paraphrasing the words of Marx-Groucho not Karl-says he will not join any political party that would have someone like him as a member.

Patrick’s unique political journey has been a search for real leaders, regardless of party, to move America forward but says in frustration, “I have chased more false prophets than the ancient Hebrews in the Old Testament”.

He is still searching and doesn’t expect the 2012 election will end his search no matter who wins.
After all these years, he has returned to where he began his political odyssey at age 12 as a Goldwater Conservative. Like Goldwater, Patrick believes in limited government in all things and the basic right of all Americans to live their lives as they see fit as long as they abide by the laws of the land. Or put another way, government should keep their hands off the public’s wallet and their nose out of folk’s private lives.

Patrick Dorinson is a modern day Will Rogers with sharp elbows who’s had an insider’s view of the political system and tells it like it is.

Patrick’s cowboy wisdom will make you laugh, make you cry, and most of all, it will make you think. If you’ve had enough of the bloviating blowhards who won’t admit how America got into this mess, or explain how we’ll get out of it, this return to simple common sense is needed now more than ever.

Patrick Dorinson is a columnist for the FOX News.com Opinion on the FOX News website and regular contributor to “The Arena” on POLITICO the #1 political website in the nation. He is the resident political analyst for Morning News on Newstalk 1530 KFBK radio in Sacramento, California. He also appears regularly as a commentator on local television.

Mr. Dorinson has appeared on Sean Hannity’s Great American Panel on the FOX News Channel and on Cavuto on the FOX Business Channel as well as on FOX News.com webcasts.

He is host of weekly radio talk show, The Cowboy Libertarian with Patrick Dorinson. It airs Saturdays from 5 to 6PM Pacific on Newstalk 1530 KFBK.

Dorinson lives on a 15 acre ranch in Nevada City, California with his wife Carol, is an avid student of the West and a pretty fair horseman. And he knows that when learning how to ride, the ground is the best teacher, having the broken bones to prove it.
He enjoys working and riding alongside his friends in the ranching and cattle business whenever he gets the opportunity. And if he had his druthers and could find an outfit to hire him he would make his living on the back of a horse.

Could you please tell us a little about your book?

My book is really an anthology of articles I have written since 2008. Many if the articles first appeared on FOX News.com Opinion and then went viral on the internet in many blogs. I was encouraged by many friends and supporters to put them all in one place, so I produced the book. At the beginning of each article I have included a short preface of why I wrote the article in the first place and how many times what I wrote was right even months and in some cases years later.

In my writing I try offer cowboy wisdom and also the wisdom of 25 years in politics. I also address issues using both seriousness and satire.

I decided that in this era of polarized politics I should represent the folks who just want to be left alone to raise their families and enjoy the freedom we are all supposed to have.

After having been around the high falutin’ elitists in this country and eating in fancy restaurants, I would rather eat at the local diner with some ranchers, cowboys and working stiffs.

Who or what is the inspiration behind this book?

My inspiration is the hard working American people who are getting the shaft from our jack-legged four flushing politicians. I decided that in this era of polarized politics I should represent these folks who just want to be left alone to raise their families and enjoy the freedom we are all supposed to have.

Who has influenced you throughout your career as a writer?

My mother who taught me the cowboy way, although at the time she never called it that. I grew up in the suburbs and she grew upon a ranch but she taught me all the old sayings that I use in my writing as well as the values that go along with it. I miss her every day. My work is dedicated to her. She was a dang good cowgirl and although small in stature she could lick her weight in wildcats.

What are you currently working on?

Currently I am doing a sequel whose working title is It’s Still Nut Cuttin’ Time America! It’s Not Too Late. It will not be an anthology but more a satirical look at the future.

What is the most important lesson you have learned from life so far?

Life is short so give it call you can. It is best summed up in the old cowboy phrase. Sorry looks back. Worry looks around. Faith looks up. It guides me every day.

What is your favorite past-time?

Being an “amateur” cowboy it is working cattle with the finest people I have ever met- the men and women who ride the range. Now if  I could only get better at roping!
