Ebola & Public Confidence

The Ebola scare seems to be subsiding at the moment. We need to keep in mind, though, that there is an incubation period for the virus. Our health officials seem to be of two minds, however, as to the length of that period. Is it 21 days or 42? Whom do we trust to tell us? The information from the CDC has been wildly contradictory on all fronts. That’s right. We wouldn’t want the public to lose confidence in the… Read more »

A Sober Analysis

I try very hard not to be a conspiracy theorist. I make every attempt not to be shrill in my commentaries. I seek to bring faith and reason together and deliver a sober analysis of events. The cartoons I use so often are the comic relief to illustrate my main points. It’s my genuine hope that fair-minded individuals will read these daily ponderings and acknowledge their honesty, at least. So I want to make sure I’m not simply partisan when… Read more »

The Obamacare Woes

The Obamacare website failure is probably one of the biggest government fiascos of all time, and that’s saying a lot if you know about the fiascos of the past, primarily on the progressive/liberal side of politics. Those who are on the president’s side, and who never seem to think he should be held accountable for anything, are having a tough time navigating through this current trouble. Maybe you’ve noticed how cranky some of them have become: One way around this… Read more »

Justice Subverted

The United States has had an attorney general ever since George Washington’s administration. The role of the attorney general always has been to enforce the laws of the United States and prosecute those who break the laws. The goal, from the start, was to provide even-handed justice, without showing favoritism or partiality to one’s political party. Of course, not all attorney generals carried out that task with great honor, particularly during times of highly partisan political warfare. Yet the aim… Read more »

Fulfilling My Calling

Since many politicians say “let me be very clear” without really meaning it, I hesitate to use the same phrase—but I do want to reemphasize something. It is not a delightful thing to me to constantly point out the hypocrisies of our president and his administration. I do so only because I believe it needs to be done. It would be far more edifying and and enjoyable to write always about examples of integrity and truth-telling. Yet I feel “called,”… Read more »

A History of Denying Reality

Tonight is debate night. The topic is domestic policy. I almost wish the first debate would be on foreign policy because that has forced its way into the forefront lately. A number of things have occurred nearly simultaneously. The biggest event, of course, was the attack on our consulate in Libya that led to the murder of six Americans, one of whom was our ambassador to that country. We now know the consulate had been begging the administration for greater… Read more »

D-Day–The New Version

As I write this, we are less than three hours away from the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare. Most of you reading this will already know what was decided. I’ll examine what transpires today and offer some thoughts on it tomorrow. This is probably one of the most anticipated and historic Supreme Court decisions in my lifetime, aside from all the bad decisions on abortion. If Obamacare is allowed to stand, it will go down as the worst decision since… Read more »
