About Joe Messina

Joe is a no-nonsense, conservative realist. He is not interested in “what if?” or “we could have!” He is interested in hearing both sides and has no problem taking on taboo issues with real questions looking for real answers. Racism, religion, and politics are all open season for topics, and he’s happy to offer up his opinion in the process! Joe is an engaging speaker mixing a healthy dose of sarcasm with the cold, hard facts, interacting with the audience, taking questions, and often playing “devil’s advocate”… just to make you to think! Actively engaged in community, church, and politics for well over a decade, Joe enjoys the reputation of being a man of integrity and ethics. He has had several successful businesses and held several executive positions with various Fortune 1000 companies. He is often sought after to teach classes his “black and white breakdown” of business ethics. If you like to “stir the pot” a little and you don’t want to hear any more political correctness, Joe is your guy! Just name a topic… politics, religion, racism, or most any current event. Joe can be heard daily across the airwaves and over the internet on several stations.


  1. Education has gone out the window. Quality teachers are just not in our school system anymore. They are teaching what they want to teach & it is not the subjects that are required for entering college. Hats off to those that are worth what they are being paid & doing a good job, and that does not include politics, passing out condoms, or suspending students that have their bread looking like a gun. It galls me to watch teachers marching for more pay when they are not even coming close to doing a good job w/ teaching students, and suspending students for idiotic choices. My firm belief is that they, the teachers, should have to go thru psychology classes to make sure they have their head on straight.

    • I can’t speak for every teacher, but there ARE quality teachers in the school system. My wife is one of them. The issue is too much federal government interference in how schools are run. So much of education funding is from the federal gov’t, and it is tied to the school districts lining up in lockstep with what and how the fed. gov’t want them to educate. So much time and focus is spent on standardized testing, that principals are ‘teaching to the test.’ Teachers’ hands are tied and it’s all about kids learning to take a test well, not learning the important subjects of reading, math, and writing. It’s a one-size-fits-all approach to education that is not working. My wife is frustrated by it all because she has a passion to teach, and is good at it. But government mandates make robots out of teachers, and kids for that matter. Whether it’s “No Child Left Behind” or “Common Core,” federally-mandated requirements are not the answer. Local districts need to be given the true power to invest their own creativity and resources in teaching kids. It’s a reason why my wife, a public school teacher, and I homeschool our 2 kids. Our 7-year old 1st grader just finished 2ND GRADE reading, and is excelling in math, as well.
