Yes Virginia, Your Government Lies to You
Insurance, Bought and Paid For.. Repeat after me, insurance, bought and paid for. Mechanical efficiency allowing the “premium” to be just three cents on the dollar. http://www.archive.org/details/YourSoci1940 Notice the giant safe shortly after 5:00, and the phrase “in trust”. But the promises of Obamacare are true, right?
What Would I Cut?
Everything. Are people going to start falling out in the streets if we eliminate Social Security and Medicare? Will people keel over if we get rid of the welfare state? Hell no so why is it so hard for Republicans and Democrats to name their cuts. My cuts of choice are pretty simple and straight forward: Time for the kiddies to grow up and its | Read More »
Lunch Ladies to Serve Dinner??? Where Does this End?
Congress seems to have a lot on their plate — literally. The House recently passed a bill that EXPANDS the school lunch program to one that serves dinner, available in all 50 States. The Bill is a result of the Ms. Obama’s efforts to end childhood obesity. Like all things with good intentions, this bill goes off the rails pretty quickly. One of the main | Read More »
Obama grants gays visitation rights, and why this headline offends those for limited government
How many ways can this news story offend me? 1. Why does it take the President of the United States to grant gay couples the right to visit each other in the hospital? What part of the Constitution comes close to regulating this? How did we get to a place in government where this order could be issued without scorn and mockery? Why is the | Read More »
The Commerce Clause and the Need for a Good Dictionary
“The Commerce Clause” is one of the most talked about topics in American politics today because it is being used as the justification for healthcare “reform” and so many other intrusions of the Congress into the lives of the American people. It is clear that this clause should be investigated within the historical and Constitutional framework that it was created. So what is this clause | Read More »
“The Way To Tyranny By The Central Government”
I waited, like a lot of folks, for the vote to come and go and allow the passage of time to ease my rage and angst along with the subsiding blood pressure spike. It was only a couple days ago, after all, that I wrote a piece admitting that I had already come to terms with the idea of health care reform becoming law. That | Read More »
Obamacare is Unconstitutional
Judge Andrew Napolitano recently asked Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC) where in the Constitution the federal government is authorized to regulate the delivery of health care. His response was ‘There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do.’ Rep. Clyburn, like many of his colleagues, seems to have conveniently forgotten that the federal | Read More »

The GOP should have a rational Health Care plan not just a hands off approach, and here are the reasons why…
In response to Warner Todd Huston’s post entitled: Is Healthcare a ‘Right’? Lets have a look back at our history. Back in 1886 firefighting was mostly unregulated, and considered a private matter that had little government involvement. Home owners who desired to have their homes protected from destruction by fire had to pay private for-profit fire companies to respond and put out any fires that | Read More »
The Five Most Dangerous Words in the English Language
To update Reagan’s Nine Most Dangerous Words, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” I have been noticing these 5 most dangerous words spread like wildfire DEM talking points throughout the left wing in peddling their latest programs to bankrupt us and spread the taxpayer wealth to their major campaign contributors. These words aren’t even exclusive to the left, as some Republicans have | Read More »
The Case for Revolution…non violent of course.
I honestly don’t know where to begin with this diary…so I suppose I will just begin at the beginning. Some 200 plus years ago our forefathers took it upon themselves to set about to create a new nation. A nation of free men. A nation that governed from the bottom up rather than a nation that ruled from the top down. Upon declaring | Read More »
This is a responsibility crisis, not a financial one
Today, several high-ranking members of Bush administration before U.S. Senate’s Committee on Banking about the “turmoil in US credit markets”. Main issue was the $700 bi bailout package, a.k.a. Mother of All Bailouts. This massive, unconstitutional bailout creates a bigger problem for generations ahead. And I’m not talking about the huge increase in the national debt.
