Obamacare: All Is Well?

All is well with the Obamacare website, according to the administration. Never mind that it still crashes regularly; don’t mention that no more than 50,000 users can be on the site at one time; forget about whether you can actually complete an enrollment and pay for it; hey, at least you can get on it—sometimes, if you are lucky. I don’t know when I’ve ever witnessed an administration that could lie so blatantly and think they can get away with… Read more »

Threat Levels

Does something have to crash and burn before a majority of Americans realize how awful it is? Well, if so, Obamacare is close to becoming the prime example, and all those conservatives who tried to sound warnings all along this policy road are now viewed as rather prophetic, even as the accusations against them continue: Even the author of this train wreck may soon be seeking anonymity: Question: how does one know the extent of the trouble one is in?… 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 »

Sin, the Church, & the Nation

Item The New Mexico Supreme Court rules that a Christian photographer who didn’t want to photograph a homosexual wedding has to do so. Her faith was not as important as the right of the couple to force her to be their photographer. Her faith has to accommodate to their wishes because anti-discrimination is more essential than religious liberty. Item A bakery in Oregon refuses to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding. The business now faces an anti-discrimination lawsuit. Item… Read more »

Obamacare Confusion: Path to Liberty or Greater Control?

The mess that is Obamacare just keeps getting worse. It seems like every week another part of the “law” gets delayed. Not that I mind, of course, when it comes to the substance of the law. But the unprincipled way in which this administration handles what is supposed to be law is disturbing, since it’s almost always a violation of the rule of law itself: When it comes to Obamacare, people are getting more confused as it lumbers along. Some… Read more »

Obamacare & the Rule of Law

The Obamacare machine lurches forward—if indeed “forward” is the right word. This thing is so full of troubles, some Republicans are hoping it self-destructs, allowing them to just watch it fall without much effort. While it’s tempting to hope for this outcome, it would be folly to depend on it. No matter how inefficient and problematic its rollout becomes, once subsidies begin flowing, it will be nearly impossible to stop it. I know the tactic being used by senators Mike… Read more »

Pro-Abortion Lawlessness

Late last night—actually, early this morning—abortion supporters “won” a “victory” in Texas.  Yes, I put quotation marks around those two words for a reason. Any victory for those who favor abortion is an abomination before God. A win, for them, is by any means possible, even at the cost of disrupting a legislature and overturning the rule of law. Here’s what happened. The Texas legislature was on the verge of passing a bill that would protect the lives of unborn… Read more »
