    The Obamacare Gamble

    The Obamacare debacle clearly illustrates the idiocy of allowing the federal government to control 1/6 of our economy and dictate our healthcare. The stakes are always higher when so many of us place so much of our lives in the hand of so few. The odds that we will all suffer calamity are always greater then. This is why the Framers of our Constitution (remember | Read More »

    I swear to put every other nation and their citizens first and to defend their rights at the expense of Americans

    According to a Reuters’ poll 60% of Americans strongly oppose intervention in Syria. I’m not surprised since American life, liberty or property have not been attacked.   I sympathize with foreigners who are oppressed and killed by their governments as I’m sure many Americans do, but the law is the law and it doesn’t permit the President to unilaterally commit our nation to war when Americans have not | Read More »

    Are there more than just two limits on eminent domain?

    The City of Richmond, California is seriously considering using eminent domain to provide mortgage relief to homeowners, but I seriously doubt the Constitution allows such action. After all, if a government seizes a lender’s stake in a home mortgage loan to give the homeowner relief from meeting his full obligation under that mortgage contract by using the power of eminent domain, then how is that not | Read More »

    Welcome to our idiocracy.

    “The years passed, mankind became more amoral and stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes that social engineering would correct this trend in the devolution of our culture, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.” Tomorrow the sun will rise, but if this election proves anything, it is that we are truly in the | Read More »

    The debate question Romney can’t answer?

    Ed Kilgore at DC Monthly says President Obama should ask Mitt Romney this killer question for which (Ed thinks) there is no good comeback. This is the debate question Romney can’t answer: “Governor Romney, how exactly do your economic policies differ from those of George W. Bush?” Liberals are so dumb. I would love to be asked that question. Here’s my comeback: “Honestly Mr. President, I’m still | Read More »

    Was Romney fair in calling out victims?

    A couple of weeks ago, Mitt Romney took a lot of flack for a video recording that showed him saying something to the effect that many of the 47% who don’t pay income taxes see themselves as victims.  In response to this video, many on the Left complained: How could he say something like this? How could he be so insensitive?   Mr. Romney has already stated that | Read More »

    GM Bailout or Sellout, You be the Judge

    Contrary to the liberal media, GM and Chrysler went bankrupt under Obama’s leadership. However, a structured bankruptcy does not mean a company is going out business. In fact, the point of a structured bankruptcy is to keep the business going. Both Obama and Romney supported a structured bankruptcy for GM and Chrysler, neither wanted those companies to go out of business, and both wanted to | Read More »

    Unborn Human Beings as Legal Persons

    Liberals often complain about the legal precedent set in Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad (1886) that corporations are considered people under the law. This is a sign from their Occupy Wall Street demonstrations: My response to them is that when they’re ready to agree that unborn human beings are people under the law, I’ll agree corporations should not be. And hey, by their | Read More »

    Redistribution, Unemployment, and Dependency: How Democrats Increased the Gap Between Rich and Poor:

    Most of us know better than to spoil our kids or to feed the bears because it creates dependency and only leads them to disrespect us in the end. We don’t do these things because we don’t want a mouthy forty year-old “kid” thinking he/she can live in our basement, or we don’t want to wake up to find our garbage scatter in our yard | Read More »

    A Fair Share

    “Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute.” That was said by an American named Robert Goodloe Harper a little over two hundred years ago. Although, I rather like Andy Taylor’s version: “Millions for Charity, but not one penny for tribute.” (a.k.a. Andy Griffith in ‘Opie and the Bully,’ 1961) Which makes me wonder, when does a tax rise to the level of being | Read More »
