My Prayer for Republicans

Things have not been going very well for Donald Trump ever since he became the presumptive nominee. Starting with his railings against the “Mexican” judge in the civil suit regarding his so-called Trump University, through the Star of David controversy, his berating of Republican senators who are skeptical of his nomination, and his plummeting poll numbers, it’s understandable why there is a growing movement to stop the Republican party from committing suicide at the convention next week. You would think… Read more »

In Praise of Individual Initiative & Ingenuity in Healthcare

Today, I would like to offer praise to a team of physicians, nurses, and staff who took care of my wife, Jan, while we were in New Orleans for her surgery. Two of those doctors initiated a new technique for restorative breast surgery after a mastectomy. Once they established their practice, they took further initiative to construct their own hospital, the St. Charles Surgical Hospital, connected to their Center for Restorative Breast Surgery. It is unique in the country. The… Read more »

Republicans Doing It Again?

The Illinois primary is now in the books as a Romney win. This was a significant state; if Santorum had won it, he would have made a major stride toward his goal of reversing the delegate math. As it is, Santorum’s path to the nomination has become virtually . . . well, I was going to say “impossible,” but I don’t want to go quite that far. Nevertheless, the odds are now more against it than a week ago, even… Read more »

The Real War on Women

We’ve been treated to a media blitz about the presumed Republican war on women. All it took to set it off was for Rush Limbaugh to use derogatory terms to describe a Georgetown law student who was pushing for government-provided contraception, supposedly because it was too expensive for her and her ideological soulmates who apparently believe they should be free to have taxpayer-sponsored sex anytime, anywhere. As noted in a previous post, Limbaugh apologized for using those terms, but it… Read more »

Media Groupies

We’re still waiting for a vote in the House on the Boehner bill. It was supposed to be last evening, but it has been put off, I understand, to tweak it some more. Hopefully, the tweaking that is going on will give it more muscle so that the rest of the Republicans can feel comfortable voting for it. If you look at this whole episode without undue bias, one thing you have to admit, no matter which side you’re on,… Read more »

Ruminations on the Debate

I watched every minute of Monday night’s Republican debate from New Hampshire. The seven candidates lined up on the stage, I believe, did a fine job for the most part. Yes, I can quibble with some of the answers, and those who are regular readers of this blog know I am not a fan of Mitt Romney, in particular. Yet all, Romney included, exuded a certain confidence in what they believe, and were able to communicate their own message. Michele… Read more »

Palin’s E-mail from God

As members of the mainstream media dig through all those Palin e-mails, here’s a prime example of what they have found. It’s in the form of a letter from God when Palin learned she was having a Down Syndrome child. She wrote it in this way to help think through the proper attitude she should have as this child was brought into the world. If you can read this and still hate her or believe she is an intellectually bereft… Read more »
