    US Constitution is Under Attack

    In an essay called ‘We the people’ loses appeal with people around the world, reporter Adam Liptak said that the US Constitution is falling out of favor around the globe. Wrote Liptak: ‘Sure, it is (our) nation’s founding document and sacred text. And it is the oldest written national constitution still in force anywhere in the world. But its influence is waning.

    Obama’s Corporate Tax Ploy

    Barack Obama is expected to call for a reduction in the 35% corporate tax rate to a rate closer to that of other industrialized nations, probably in the high 20s. So what is going on here? Is Obama suddenly embracing low-tax capitalism? Well, yes, as a campaign ploy to try and attract disgruntled businesspeople and the unemployed masses to his re-election. But actually no, not | Read More »

    ‘Occupiers’ = Greek Terrorists

    Look at this report from from February 12, 2012: ‘(Reuters) – The Greek parliament approved a deeply unpopular austerity bill to secure a second EU/IMF bailout and avoid national bankruptcy, as buildings burned across central Athens and violence spread around the country.

    JetBlue Nation

    (Today is Valentine’s Day. This is an editorial that I wrote about an incident that happened on Valentine’s Day 2007 aboard a JetBlue flight. It is still timely today.) It was wickedly cold again this year, right on schedule, one of the worst winters ever: Ice storms in the Southeast, frozen orchards in California, ten feet of snow in Upstate New York, record low temps | Read More »

    Abortion Flare-Up Exposes Malicious Left

    It’s just amazing to listen to people on the political left in the wake of the ObamaCare demand, now withdrawn in its original form, that would have forced many Catholic institutions to provide abortion and birth control coverage in their health plans. Liberals are anti-life to the core. For instance, they want unfettered access to abortion. And after saying for decades that a new fetus | Read More »

    Obama’s Bank Heist

    What’s the difference between Barack Obama’s $25 billion bank heist of February 9 and a regular street job? Answer: The street robber has a mask of fabric and a gun of steel. Obama hides behind the mask of socialism and uses the government as his weapon.

    Obama Angers Catholics

    Tens of millions of Catholics across America are outraged over new ObamaCare regulations that will force religious institutions like Catholic schools, charities and hospitals to provide birth-control pills, abortion-producing drugs and sterilization coverage in their health plans for employees.

    US Has Vast Energy Resources

    If you were raised in the 1960s and 1970s, you heard about ‘energy scarcity’ right from the start. Certain groups with a bias against our advanced lifestyle and our economic success fed us the myth that our carbon fuels of coal, natural gas and oil are “limited” or “scarce” or “disappearing”. One of the eco-shibboleths most often promulgated was,  and is, the myth of ‘peak | Read More »

    Conservatives… Relax

    Republicans and conservatives are worrying themselves silly over every word uttered in the primaries and about the electability of a candidate to represent our interests. To which Nikitas3 says: Chill out, folks. The election is nine months away. And while this concern is certainly part of the territory, it masks the intense worry on the Democrat side which is worse than on our side. And | Read More »
