Self-Evident Truths & Inalienable Rights

When the Founders declared independence, they debated the document that Jefferson drafted. All the debate centered around the specific charges against the king. No one raised any objections or questions about the opening paragraphs. The second paragraph, in particular, spoke of self-evident truths—beliefs that everyone in the room held to without needing some type of external evidence to bolster those beliefs. Self-evident truths are obvious; they are implanted by God Himself in each person. The Founders identified at least three… Read more »

The Obama Work Ethic

This is quite an eye-opener. I submit it for your consideration. At this point, I won’t comment further; I’ll save that for a later post. I do believe, though, that it confirms what I have sensed all along. For now, I will copy this comment from Townhall.com, from someone who knew Barack Obama when he was “in charge” of the Harvard Law Review: As President of the law review, a place where many of the organization’s officers spent many hours per week… Read more »

Obama’s strategists, which include some of the worst characters from the Clinton years such as James Carville and Paul Begala, have decided that the Republican party will… Read more »

The Blind Leading the Blind?

Between election day and Obama’s inauguration, the stock market dropped about 1000 points. Between his inauguration and today, the market has dropped another 1000 points. Somebody is not inspiring confidence. Why this amazing lack of confidence? If your only solution to a financial crisis is to spend more money [which, by the way, ultimately comes from the taxpayers—the ones you ostensibly are trying to help], and the result is to put the government into deeper debt than at any time… Read more »

Administration Attacks on Pro-Life Continue

The Obama administration continues its war against pro-lifers on two fronts. According to the Los Angeles Times: Taking another step into the abortion debate, the Obama administration today [Monday, March 2] will move to rescind a controversial rule that allows healthcare workers to deny abortion counseling or other family planning services if doing so would violate their moral beliefs, according to administration officials. So if Obama gets his way, no pro-life doctor or nurse will be able to opt out… Read more »

New Take on the Reagan Era

In tandem with my previous post about the wisdom expressed by Reagan in his “Evil Empire” speech, I thought this political cartoon effectively captured the new administration’s feelings about all things Reagan.
