Water is not “free”
Fresh off a triumphant childhood obesity campaign that left school children in open rebellion against her tiny, unappetizing school lunches, our First Lady – an unelected, unvetted, unconfirmed, unqualified national Minister of Health – has embarked on a crusade to make people drink more water. The splashy rollout of this campaign met immediately with resistance from the same grumpy, fact-obsessed realists who have interfered with | Read More »

Please help Arizonans help kill Obamacare
Originally published at Unified Patriots. The RINO (“Republican In Name Only”) Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and her RINO cohorts in the state legislature passed “Medicaid Expansion,” which is nothing more than implementation of Obamacare in Arizona. Despite having a Republican in the Governor’s office, and Republican majorities in the Arizona House and Senate, fifteen RINOs, and Brewer, joined with Democrats to ramrod this monstrous socialized | Read More »
The Obamacare Reality
I just went through my company’s open enrollment period for health insurance and my monthly premiums went down and they went down drastically. I am going to save at least $80 a month for the 2013 calendar year. OK – Let’s all hold on a second while liberals do their happy dance and loudly proclaimed that they told us Obamacare would lower costs. *Jeopardy theme plays | Read More »
It’s Not Just A Messaging Problem: Only 15% Of Likely Voters Think ObamaCare Will Lower Health Costs

Full Costs of ObamaCare Becoming Apparent
With its latest report (PDF) on the budgetary projections of the president’s health care reform law, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) provides an enhanced view of what ObamaCare is likely to cost. The full spending provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will not come into effect until 2014. So far, the CBO has projected expenditures of the law until 2019. Its | Read More »
Ms. Martha King: Will He Hear Me on November 3rd?
“Good morning, Ms. King.” “Hi, Baby. Jesus loves you!” “Yes, ma’am. Jesus loves you, too.” Ms. Martha King is one of God’s Beloved. She never changes. She greets everyone in the church as she slowly advances down the aisle on her cane. She looks good for seventy (70). In fact, she looks like a young fifty (50) year old woman. She is the type of | Read More »
Child Obesity: Handling the “Security Threat”
As a mom of young adult children, I was almost ticked off by the April 20th Fox Report‘s picture of a school lunch branded, “SECURITY THREAT.” Retired admirals and generals just released an alarming report: 27% of young adults are not mission ready to defend our nation,that’s one in four of our grown children. Retired military leaders are on the attack against unhealthy school lunches. | Read More »
Is there a Right to Healthcare?
According to long established tradition in the English common law, and as explained by the eminent Blackstone, the three rights in the Declaration of Independence are as follows. Life is the right to live, intact with one’s limbs, eyes, and organs. Any physical damage that cripples or removes a limb, or eyes, or kills one violates this right. This definition was important because according to | Read More »
A letter to Melissa Bean, Blue Dog
I just sent an email to Melissa. Probably not a good use of my time. I was very disappointed in your vote for the health care bill. It seems that you are just another soldier in Nancy Pelosi’s army. You care more about her opinion than your constituents’ opinions. The irony is that this bill will likely never be implemented. It is the spark that | Read More »
Letter to Ann Kirkpatrick, (D) AZ, and the Blue Dog Coalition
I just sent this probably useless email to my Representative in Congress and to the Blue Dog Democrats via the Michael Medved website. It follows another, different one sent via her own website, and a telephone call (message machine, of course). The whole thing makes me sick. Dear Representative Kirkpatrick and Fellow Democratic Citizens: I am firmly opposed to this “health care” bill. It is | Read More »
Where Are The Celebrity Health Care Proponents?
Yesterday, I heard Pat Buchanan remark that whipping the final health care votes would have nothing to do with economic or even ideological arguments, but that the last few scattered sheep would be driven into the pen with an appeal to the “do you really want to he hear Rush and Sean crowing about this on Monday?” tactic. Now, the more I think about it, | Read More »
Lefty Claims for the Latest, Greatest, Invisible, Still in Committee, Yet to be Inserted in the Shell Bill, Healthcare Highjack Bill
Pelosi’s gang have the greatest claims for this bill. They can promise the world, since nobody has yet seen the bill. It might as well be the chupacabra, because it’s just as easy to see. I also suspect the bill’s a killer, just like the NHS and the X-Files version of the chupacabra. Can anybody tell me if I missed anything? Supposedly this bill is | Read More »
Will The Supreme Court Justices Please Not Comment On ANYTHING Right Now?
It occurred to me the other day, that one of the reasons the White House has been goading the Supreme Court is the hopes that perhaps one of the “five” will make some kind of presumptive “gaffe”–one that forces a recusal from any upcoming and certain challenges to the health care bill. One would be enough to presume a 4-4 split. Two would be fatal. | Read More »
New York State proposes banning salt
The New York General Assembly is at it again. They’re looking out for the health of the people of New York, legislating behavior for the betterment of all. Felix Ortiz (D-Brooklyn) has proposed a new law that would fine restaurants $1,000 for each violation for including an additive in their meals that has been linked to heart disease and other health problems when it is | Read More »
