The Hidden Costs of Obamacare
Obamacare is a tax that is costly to businesses and individuals in a lot of obvious ways. Many of those, though – the penalties, the fees, the increased costs of coverage, the loss of doctors and health plans – have already been covered ad nauseam. One aspect of the law’s cost to the American economy that has received comparatively little attention has been the compliance costs | Read More »
The Further Weaponization of the United States Government
Since at least before the 2012 re-election, and unbeknownst to Americans until fairly recently, the administration that currently runs the White House has been weaponizing various government agencies at a rate never before seen in U.S. history. The Internal Revenue Service was used to silence conservative groups. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office was used to force social change, despite receiving zero complaints prior. I | Read More »
Chris McDaniel’s Compelling Conservatism
**Promoted from the diaries – Aaron** Growing up in Chris McDaniel’s home county of Jones, I personally know many of the ordinary people, my family included, that voted him into his state senate seat, and then spent countless hours volunteering for his US Senate campaign. They see McDaniel as a fighter on their behalf, someone who will not bow to political convention, and someone who stands for fiscal sanity | Read More »
The war on religious faith continues
There probably hasn’t been a Supreme Court decision since Bush v. Gore, and definitely since Citizens United, that has been as maligned and mischaracterized as the Hobby Lobby case. Those opposing the decision are crying Armageddon! as though the proverbial gerbil of Religious Freedom was seeking a source light in the alimentary canal of the secular left. In the immediate aftermath of Hobby Lobby, the | Read More »

President Obama Refuses to Treat the Border Crisis Seriously
Right now, a legal and humanitarian crisis is unfolding on our Southern border. And our President simply cannot bring himself to take the problem seriously. By all accounts, tens of thousands of refugees have spilled across the border, many of whom are unaccompanied minors or single parents. A large plurality of the accumulated mass are not illegal immigrants seeking to come here for work, but | Read More »
Gun Control Will Never Stop Barbarism
During the 48-hour period of May 30-June 1, there were 16 incidents of gunfire and 19 people hit by bullets. Only 2 suspected shooters were arrested. Overall, roughly 25% to 30% of nonfatal shootings result in an arrest, compared with arrests in about 80% of homicides, according to an NYPD spokesman.(HT: New York Daily News) “It’s Groundhog Day here in Chicago” is how Police Superintendent | Read More »

The Christian Thing to Do
“He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing.” Deuteronomy 10:18 (ESV) “I do not think we should let these people stay here. But I think while here we should, in private charity, show mercy and give comfort where we can.” Christians are used to hearing people say “it’s the Christian thing to do.” Most often, | Read More »
Let’s Not Impeach Obama
“So Sue Me!” Taunts His Most Grandiloquent Emperor of The Sand-Trap. If Barack Obama can’t do anything intelligent to better the American Nation’s commonweal, then perhaps John Boehner can distract attention away from the emperor’s sartorial elegance. I have high hopes that John Boehner’s lawsuit threats are ultimately rhetorical. He was smart enough not to fall into the trap of impeaching. That would be Sarah | Read More »

Senate Democrats outraged by the result of that decision are taking the only step available to them to reverse the decision, gut religious liberty.

John Boehner is Right on Impeachment
I maintain that John Boehner’s lawsuit against the President is a political stunt. There may be some plausible legal grounds to get the suit into court, but even if successful President Obama will be out of office before such a suit is finally resolved. It’s a political stunt wasting taxpayer dollars. I maintain that the House Republicans should be more interested in doing what is | Read More »
The stress of citizenship
I once worked for a company that put its employees through one of those lengthy performance evaluations that included psych-test essay questions, such as “How do you define ‘stress,’ and how could you reduce the amount of stress in your workday?” I was young and new to such evaluations, so I’d never really thought much about “stress” before. I was convinced it had nothing to | Read More »
