Inevitabillary?

Polls are indicating this could be a big November for Republicans. They are poised to regain control of the Senate along with retaining leadership of the House. For some people, of course, this is viewed as a calamity. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in her usual understated manner, declared that a Republican takeover just might lead to the end of civilization as we know it: No, a Republican takeover would be more of a threat to Nancy Pelosi and her… Read more »

Adventures in Obamacareland

What might be a better name for Obamacare? Adventures in Wonderland? Theater of the Absurd? The New Twilight Zone? If you are paying attention at all, you ought to be stunned by the ludicrous nature of this legislation: from its false philosophical basis, to its awful rollout, to the many changes made to it by executive fiat, Obamacare is pretty much a laughingstock. Or at least it would be if not for the dismal fact that millions have been forced… Read more »

Obamacare: A Call for Action

It’s time to take stock of where we stand with Obamacare. It’s also time for both Democrats and Republicans to consider the steps they need to take in this present crisis. And crisis is not too strong a term to use for this disaster. Millions are losing their healthcare plans and have nowhere good to go to replace them. That’s just the individual plans. Next year, this law will begin to affect employer plans, which will multiply the anguish nearly… Read more »

Obamacare’s Looming Train Wreck

Maybe this Obamacare nightmare may be put to rest after all. Could we perhaps call it a mercy killing? Democrat Senator Max Baucus of Montana, who played an instrumental role in shoving the misnamed Affordable Care Act on all of us, in a recent hearing, called the implementation of this monstrosity a potential train wreck. In that April 17 hearing, Baucus issued a warning to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that he didn’t believe her department had done enough to ensure… Read more »

Holding to a Form of Godliness, but Denying Its Power

Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi will be present today in Rome for the celebratory mass to be held by the new pope, Francis I. They were chosen as part of the delegation because they are Catholic. Never mind that their beliefs are anything but Catholic. Both favor the pro-abortion stance and have come out in support of same-sex marriage. What I wouldn’t give to see the following scenario unfold: Biden and Pelosi, like too many of their fellow Catholics, are… Read more »

Responsible Spender?

In the past week, President Obama, on the campaign trail, has tried to convince his audiences—and us as well—that he has been the most responsible spender in recent presidential history. He used as his proof an article written by someone who drew all his information from a presentation by Nancy Pelosi. Now there’s a solid source. In order to believe this spin, one has to place all 2009 spending on former President Bush. How can anyone do that? Well, since… Read more »

Bad Economic Indicators

A summer after the administration-announced “Recovery Summer,” we still haven’t recovered. There are a lot of bad economic indicators, but some stand out more starkly than others: Yet the president never once acknowledges the role his policies have played in this downturn. Instead, he continues to find other people to blame: There’s even murmuring within Obama’s own party. One Democrat, though, in particular, has reason to be happy with how things are going: Watching the president and his apologists, one… Read more »
