    Primaries Matter

    The House and Senate Republicans have handed Barack Obama a blank check to raise the national debt as much as he wants. Throughout last year, Republicans said conservatives should fight on the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution. They said they should filibuster the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution.

    ‘Impeach the President’

    You guys in the press who are reading this right now can be such shameless whores. I generally try to hold to the standard these days that if I wouldn’t be outraged by George Chimpy McBushitler Halliburton and Darth Cheney doing something, I shouldn’t be outraged by President Obama. And if I’d be outraged by Bush, I should be outraged by Obama. But you journalists | Read More »

    Scarborough for President?

    Over at the Daily Caller, Alex Pappas has a story about Joe Scarborough possibly considering a 2016 run. I find this very interesting. I’ve had several encounters lately with Christians in politics and they really like Joe — all of them.You guys should know Joe is a friend of mine and not in the Washington sense of the word “friend,” but in the actual sense. | Read More »

    Here’s Why Barack Obama is Delaying Obamacare Again

    The Obama Administration is yet again delaying the employer mandate for businesses with 50 to 99 full time workers.The reason is the congressional budget office report.Page 124 of the report has this language: Beginning in 2015, employers of 50 or more full-time equivalent workers that do not offer health insurance (or that offer health insurance that does not meet certain criteria) will generally pay a | Read More »

    From the Mailbag: The Oh $*@! Edition

    Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. In response to this about the shibboleths of the damned, our mail bag got this: If you wish to mislead concerning the Leviticus quote, that’s your business, but it was really aimed at birth control. Also, the Apostle Paul also said that not all of what he said was inspired, and there is question about who really wrote the | Read More »
