What Change?

When you run on a platform of hope and change, you raise expectations. What changes have taken place since inauguration day? I can name a few: The homosexual “community” now has an advocate in the White House The taxpayers can now enjoy the privilege of funding abortions overseas For the first time in American history, we have a Treasury Secretary who declined to pay his taxes until he got nominated for the office The president, in a time of a continuing war on… Read more »

A Problem Avoided

It has just been announced that Tom Daschle has withdrawn his nomination for Health & Human Services Secretary. A good thing. You don’t avoid paying taxes and then get confirmed by the Senate for . . . Oh, wait, that apparently doesn’t apply to nominees for Treasury Secretary. Now that Daschle has withdrawn, the cartoon below may be beside the point, but it still does make a valid point, one we should all remember: double standards abound. On a positive… Read more »

Republican Solidarity

Obama has put on quite a display of outward bipartisanship, inviting Republicans to meet with him and promising that if they have good ideas, he is open to them.

God Is in Control (Part III)

The Scripture to the left is often invoked to say that everything will work out alright regardless of what men choose. “Don’t you know,” we are told, “that God works all things together for good”? That’s called “selective reading” of a Scripture. Look closely. For whom do things work together for good? The promise is for those “who love the Lord,” the ones “who are the called according to His purpose.” This is not an outright promise that all things… Read more »
