Needed: Political Will & Courage

So the debt deal is history, in the sense that we don’t have to wade through the daily trauma of ups and downs. It’s not a solution, by any means. In fact, the “cuts” in the deal are only just cuts for the rate of future spending. They don’t actually cut back on what is current. This means, unless more drastic action is taken, we are still plunging deeper into debt over the next few years. I’m not as disturbed… Read more »

Ideologically Driven … Again

Indiana recently cut off all taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. That’s the good news. Even if you haven’t yet heard of the administration’s response to this, you can probably guess, based on how it reacted to Arizona’s illegal immigration law.

Uh huh … and what does this have to do… Read more »

But if the policies we follow are going to bind future generations to a massive debt, it becomes obvious… Read more »

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 »
