Oxymoron of the Week

Perhaps the saddest spectacle in this whole healthcare fiasco was the revelation that some people who claim to be prolife really aren’t. It doesn’t please me to say this, but a true prolife Democrat, at least in this current Congress, is an oxymoron. When Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak folded on Sunday, accepting a promise from the administration that the president would issue an executive order disallowing abortion funding by the government, all hope of stopping this bill died. He and… Read more »

Healthcare Passed . . . Waves of Nausea Begin

Unfortunately, we know all too well what’s in it. Even though the bill itself will be one of the most unread pieces of legislation ever to pass Congress, the effects of its provisions will reverberate througout our society. Another cartoonist had similar thoughts. The promises made for this bill are so fantastic, it’s almost impossible to begin to explain how ludicrous they are. An allusion to the movie Alice might help. Perhaps this one is more direct. In essence, what… Read more »

Full Steam Ahead!

Full steam ahead! That’s the word from Democrats on healthcare. And the pressure is on. Three more Democrats in the House have now decided to vote for the bill. One is Dennis Kucinich, who is more than a little flakey anyway. He didn’t vote for it the first time because it was too “conservative.” It’s the other two that bring a feeling of disgust: two House members who said they were prolife have now decided the language of the bill… Read more »

Obamacare Coming to a Head?

The word today is that this is THE week. Obamacare, according to Obama, will pass the Congress this time. Well, it might. It all depends on how many Blue Dog Democrats and those who say they oppose abortion cave under the pressure. Meanwhile, polls continue to show a large majority of Americans oppose this bill (if indeed a bill exists—that’s still a matter of debate). Yet Obama disregards the opposition. Why? He interprets his 2008 election victory as a mandate to do… Read more »

Pushing Toward Disaster

Are you as tired as I am of thinking about this whole healthcare issue? Obama refuses to give up. I would admire someone standing by principles this strongly if only those principles were real principles based on Biblical bases. Unfortunately, his are not. The nice thing is that every poll says a majority of Americans either reject the Obama approach or have serious concerns about it. Of course, that’s been true for months. How can he continue to demand something… Read more »

Second Thoughts, Anyone?

Life in the Obama universe hasn’t quite been what his admirers expected. We’re now more than one year into the “New Era” and the millennium hasn’t arrived. What to do? Well, how about reconnecting with reality? What is the new reality we must now face? That’s part of it. There’s also an attempt to force people into accepting something they don’t really want. Looks pretty scary, but you know what’s even scarier? If we can believe the polls, the president… Read more »
