Washington, Ignore The American People At your Peril!
Stupak folds on a ‘promise’ from Obama for an executive order preventing federal funding for abortions. Start counting the remaining days in your tenure, Representative Stupak. Your constituents will know exactly what you did and exactly who you are. If you think that a Barack Obama who has yet to speak a word of truth will keep his word… I have some Madoff securities for | Read More »
Countdown, We aren’t children, we can handle this, either way
They are, and they can’t. I defer to the things written by TheSophist and eburke this week. The best writers in the land can’t add to what they said. Even if the House carries the vote (which vote, I’m still not sure) the chances of it ever becoming law is still less than 50/50.

That is not necessarily a good thing, in that those who do put that electoral pistol to their heads may no longer be hesitant to issue still more aye-votes on other key Obama issues later this year; cap and trade, immigration, etc. (This | Read More »
Unhealthy – Outrageous And Embarrassing.
It’s the only game in town… and it smells pretty damned gamey. Obama: “We’re going to provide you with choices”. Then he claims to ‘aid’ education by confiscating another chunk of the private sector by the government takeover of student loan programs. Who the heck said the government had any business in loaning money for schooling to start with? He wants to strip requirements that | Read More »
