Canada’s health care system is in trouble
Imagine that – In Canada health care costs are soaring, and they can’t figure out what to do. Pressured by an aging population and the need to rein in budget deficits, Canada’s provinces are taking tough measures to curb healthcare costs, a trend that could erode the principles of the popular state-funded system. Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, kicked off a fierce battle with drug | Read More »
Did BP stage photo-op for Obama?
CNN picked up on this story last night. There are new accusations aimed at BP over oil spill cleanup efforts in Louisiana. Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts accuses the oil company of shipping workers to Grand Isle for Pres. Barack Obama’s visit today and sending them away after the president left. I didn’t see anything about it on Fox News Channel last night – they | Read More »
Bill Clinton was the Obama/Rahm/Sestak middle man
That’s the story breaking this morning. Oh please. They are saying this was all informal, just friends talking to friends, nothing illegal since Clinton has no power to offer anyone a job, etc. Talk about something not passing the smell test! Fox News is all over it and no doubt everyone will be. Even the hardcore lefties will have a hard time swallowing this one. | Read More »
NOW will the left admit there are bad guys in Gaza?
Killing some Israeli soldiers or citizens is perfectly fine, but THIS is unacceptable! A small Syrian-backed terrorist group in Gaza said its activists blew up a donkey cart laden with explosives close to the border with Israel on Tuesday, killing the animal but causing no human casualties. Nah – I doubt this will change any lefties’ minds. They’ll say it was planted by Israel to | Read More »
Nice timing Seattle!

They learn via fingerprints that ICE wants him. May 19: It’s learned that he’s been deported 4 times and uses 35 different aliases.

Racist AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio targets Hispanics yet again!
Just because some friends gather together for a little fun and games doesn’t mean he should go in busting up the meetings and looking to arrest and deport as many of these people as possible. AG Holder needs to go after him – under the “disparate impact” standard it’s completely racist. I don’t ever read about white people getting arrested for doing this same thing.
NATO is getting a new mission statement
Perhaps all you need to know is that the “head of the team of experts” who wrote this draft is former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Unless future NATO warfare will involve dropping giant brooches on the enemy, I don’t see how she can provide anything useful – and clearly she doesn’t. Feel free to read more if you wish, but be prepared to | Read More »
What the ….? Palin endorses Fiorina (no I’m not kidding!)
As usual, the news comes from Palin’s Facebook site. Unless someone hacked it, she really is endorsing Fiorina over DeVore. I’d like to tell you about a Commonsense Conservative running for office in California this year… Her name is Carly Fiorina, and I’m proud to endorse her for U.S. Senate. Carly is the Commonsense Conservative that California needs and our country could sure use in | Read More »
Raise your hand if you thought the $50B bailout for Freddie Mac was the end of it
They’re saying they need another $10B and change just to cover the past quarter. Who could have seen this shock coming? Freddie Mac is asking for $10.6 billion in additional federal aid after posting a big loss in the first three months of the year. It’s another sign that the taxpayer bill for stabilizing the housing market will keep mounting. The McLean, Va.-based mortgage finance | Read More »
Going to great pains to avoid use of “illegal”
We’ve seen lots of this lately. In the most generic sense, all the complaints about the Arizona law ignore that – like every other law on everyone’s books – it’s aimed at combatting things that are, well, ILLEGAL. Here’s another great example. The Santa Cruz anti-AZ protest march this weekend resulted in a good bit of destruction, considering only 250 people were involved. Note how | Read More »
