Overturn or repeal and replace? With What?
I believe the Republicans in Congress should begin a new affordable health care program, with one simple bill. Here is my rough draft. True affordable health care act Article I Elimination of excess premiums caused by ObamaCare. That portion of health care premiums charged to implement ObamaCare (aka the affordable health care act) shall be reduced by that portion of increase required to implement | Read More »
Government workers unions are not private trade unions
Lets not confuse the issue. The problem is not trade unions. Yes, some trade unions make your electricity more expensive and your construction more costly. But these private sector unions must compete against other non-union companies. And even where there are no non-union companies they can only thrive if business thrives. But government sector unions are entirely another animal. Where private sector unions must compete | Read More »
Take away from Wisconsin, bad news for John Boehner
While the Republicans are beating there breast and patting themselves on the back because Scott Walker won the recall, the truth is that this is not good news for the Republican chances in November. It took a coalition of Republicans, Tea Party activists, independents and even some traditionally Democrat demographics to win this battle. Was it because of the ground game? Or maybe because of | Read More »
What did Bain do? Come on Oblivious Obama, lets dance…
Give me your best shot, tell me why Bain where Romney worked is an evil corporate raider that sacrificed jobs for profit. Because you got Boxwood blood on your hands. That’s right, you heard me General Motors Boxwood Road plant in New Castle county Delaware. The most populous county in Joe Biden’s home state lost it’s biggest employer.

Can Romney win? A question by Hugh Hewett
Can Romney win? And not just win or loose but by how much. So the choices are win big or narrow, loose big or narrow.

Extortionist in Chief Obama… or another take on evolving positions
Think about this. The Obama administration decides to impose regulations on coal and reduce it’s use. What do you think happens? – Coal producers increase lobbying Washington to overturn, or block the regulations. People give money to Obama and the democrats – Global Warming alarmists increase lobbying Washington to impose more restrictions, or more aggressively enforce the current restrictions. People give money to Obama and | Read More »
Well this proves Obama isn’t Muslim
I am not sure how this is going contribute his “hitting the reset button” with foreign countries but I do hope he bows before another Muslim king or Monarch. It will be interesting to see if the guards take off his head, since after all there is no penalty in Sharia for executing an abomination insulting to Islam. Lets be realistic. There is no such | Read More »
Dictating from the oval office, Barack Obama violates oath of office.
By the time you read this you should have seen that POTUS is once again acting against American’s duly elected Congressional representatives and has lifted a ban on an aide package of $192 million for the Palestinian Authority. No President has the authority to spend money that Congress specifically freezes. The experience of President Gerald Ford, denied funds by Congress needed to enforce the terms | Read More »
End zone antics – Someone tell this guy to look at the score board!
Is it just me or does President Obama remind you of Terrell Owens. No disrespect meant to Terrell who at least was good at his job. Here we go again. The Obama administration wants to “spike the ball” one more time over their only score since the 2008 election at a time when the opposing team is leading by at least 28 points. And threatening | Read More »
Earth day observations from someone that was there on day one.
I keep reading stupid commentary from people who are too young to have any clue what the first earth day was about. Born and raised in Philadelphia I was a Senior in High School in 1970. It was a beautiful spring, and April 23 was a beautiful day. Philadelphia was trotting out ideas and celebrations for the up coming bicentennial celebration so “Olde City” was | Read More »
