A Reagan appointed federal district judge in Florida has ruled key portions of Obamacare, namely the individual mandate, unconstitutional. Because Congress expressly did not put a severability clause in the legislation, the judge has ruled the whole law unconstitutional.The left is, naturally, shocked and appalled that the judge did not let the rest of Obamacare stand as a judge in Virginia did. They are calling | Read More »
The Debt Ceiling Spin Begins From the Democrats
As I noted earlier, if we reach the debt ceiling, the United States does not automatically default on its loans. The issue, however, is priority of payment. We will bring in more each month in tax revenue to the U.S. Treasury than we will need to pay out to our lenders.It requires Tim Geithner (why is he still on the job anyway?) to prioritize and | Read More »
Might Someone Please Educate Fox News and the Rest of the Media?
Fox News has an article on its website about John Boehner’s remarks on raising the debt ceiling. But in this objective report there is a great and dangerous falsehood. The article, which has no author attached to it, reports In order for the debt ceiling to rise, Congress must approve taking on more debt, which currently is growing by more than $4 billion per day. | Read More »

Back to the Future?
I sure hope the Tea Party Express backs away from perhaps the lamest comment uttered so far gearing up for 2012. Sal Russo, chief strategist for Tea Party Express, says TPE won’t go after Orrin Hatch in 2012 because 35 years ago Orrin Hatch supported Reagan over Ford.No, I’m not making that up.There are lots of reasons one may decide not to oppose Orrin Hatch. | Read More »
Is Jim Moran Just Stupid?
According to Congressman Jim Moran of Virginia, Barack Obama is opposed because he is black. No, it has nothing to do with his policies. Nothing at all.Moran even took shots at former slave holding states, including his own, which, like the slave holding state of North Carolina, went for Barack Obama. “In this case a lot of people in this country, I believe, don’t want | Read More »

Two Great Takes on SOTU
Hop on over to Mark Levin’s Facebook Page for his take on the State of the Union. The first paragraph starts it off nicely. President Obama’s foot remains where it has been since the day he entered the Oval Office, on the gas pedal. He’s not braking for anyone or anything. All this pre-SOTU spin from Obama’s whisperers, gobbled up by the Obama-hungry media, was always | Read More »
The Sputnik Moment
“Barack Obama did not jump the shark; he sputniked.” Barack Obama’s “Sputnik Moment” sums up his speech best. In fact, there is no reason to fully dwell on his speech in light of the sputnik moment. What do I mean? Consider this: Barack Obama declared that “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.” His reference was to the mobilization of the United States after the Soviets | Read More »
