The Democrats: The Party of Control

“The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly.” Abraham Lincoln, when speaking these words, could have been advising today’s GOP, which in its four-year fight to repeal ObamaCare has found an unlikely ally–the law itself. Strict implementation of this law’s myriad rules, regulations, and requirements, the GOP has found, […]

An Increase in Minimum Wage: Have We Learned Nothing?

No matter how many times certain ideas are completely debunked, many, nevertheless, have a way of always returning. The present push by Democrats to increase the federal minimum wage rate is one such debunked idea returning for its tired and predictable reprise. Currently the federal minimum wage is $7.25-per-hour. The president and congressional Democrats would […]

Justice in America is the Norm

Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade, who shares the life experiences of the well-to-do, upwardly mobile Indian professional classes, was arrested earlier this month in Manhattan on charges of lying on a visa application about how much she pays her maid, Sangeeta Richard. New York prosecutors claim the maid received only $3 per hour. Additionally, Richard’s husband […]

Martin Bashir’s Troubles: My Interpretation of Events

I’ve been wanting to write the following for a few weeks now, but have hesitated each time because of the great possibility of being misunderstood. But to hell with that. Former MSNBC political pundit Martin Bashir recently resigned his position because of off-color, inappropriate comments he had made about Sarah Palin. She had compared to […]

The Nuclear Option Arrives – A Democrat Coup D’etat

Well, the Senate Democrats did it as they have been threatening; they have finally triggered the so-called nuclear option. As of today, no longer can the GOP Senate minority filibuster the president’s judicial and administrative nominations. This is huge! Senate Democrats, arguing hypocritically the exact opposite of that which they argued just a decade ago […]

You Can Keep Your Plan As Long as THEY Like It

I read an article this morning about shell-shocked ACA supporters, finding their current health coverage canceled and replaced by higher-cost plans, turning against the president. What is interesting about the article is how ignorant these people are of basic economics. Such ignorance allowed the passing of the ACA in the first place and is almost […]

We Are All Beta Testers Now

I think this (see article link below) is the most damning ObamaCare information yet to come out. In order to roll out ObamaCare on Oct. 1, the administration chose to roll out a website it knew not only wasn’t fully tested from a functional view, but–worse–also was not tested from a security view. The administration […]

Hypocrisy in Washington

Hypocrisy abounds in Washington. Here’s an example.  The president said this recently: The spending initiative passed by the Democratic-led Senate would pass the House with support from Democrats and some Republicans, except that [Speaker] Boehner won’t allow the vote. In other words, the president says that if Speaker Boehner would only allow House members to […]
