Federal Bureaucrats Misbehave & Taxpayers Are Punished

  Give The Washington Post credit for its expose that criticizes a large portion of its declining subscriber base: Federal employees. According to the Post, “Tens of thousands of federal workers are being kept on paid leave for at least a month — and often for longer stretches that can reach a year or more […]

Curbing Obama power grabs

The courts and Senate provide no checks and balances. Could a Republican Senate help? You’ve got to admire the sheer audacity: Democratic Senator Mark Begich telling Alaska voters that he stood up to President Obama and fought for oil drilling and jobs in his state. Maybe he had a few chats. But he certainly knew […]

Obamacare Forces Retailers to Drop Coverage

  Four years into Obamacare, taxpayers are still discovering ways the ACA is expensive in both tax dollars and damage to the healthcare system. Isn’t it ironic you can sue a doctor for negligence when he damages your health, but you can’t sue politicians for negligence when they damage a healthcare system? Trial lawyers could […]

A Supreme Court, Not Supreme Wisdom

  I am not a lawyer, but I have read the Constitution and I cannot find any indication that the Founding Fathers intended the guarantee of “equal protection of the laws” in the 14th Amendment to include same-sex marriage. The idea would have been regarded as an abomination to the men who created the Constitution. […]

We need some regulatory patriotism!

President Obama condemns tax inversions, but pillages America with his regulatory agenda “My policies are on the ballot, every single one of them,” he reminded voters on October 2. It’s no mystery why American companies have stockpiled over $2 trillion of overseas earnings in foreign bank accounts. If they bring it to the United States, […]

Obama’s Ignorance

  From time to time I hear President Obama described as “an evil genius”, but he is neither. He’s not evil. He’s something much worse. He is a fool who thinks he’s a genius. This is not about his intelligence. No one gets to be President of the United States without some degree of intelligence. […]

USPS – Delivering Deficit Spending Since 2006

  I’m old enough to remember when milkmen drove the streets before sunrise delivering dairy products in sweating glass bottles to customer doorsteps. My family’s last delivery was when I was in the 6th grade, because mom said it was cheaper to buy the milk with the rest of the groceries. Now the United States […]

Common Core Indoctrination

  By SARTRE Over the last half century, the public school establishment in America has achieved enormous results, if the intention was to dumb down the population. The term public is archaic, since the current age promotes an internationalist interdependency culture, where the state defines institutional roles and sanctions accepted standards. The public plays virtually […]

The Obamacare Disaster

  By far the worst law passed by Congress in 2010 was the Affordable Care Act (ACA) otherwise known as Obamacare. It was passed without a single Republican vote and as more Americans experience the higher costs and other aspects of it realize how it has negatively affected their lives, it should eventually be dismembered […]

More Misguided Spending Won’t Deter ISIS

Our famously detached president has recently decided to become very hands-on in the application of air power. Obama, like LBJ in Vietnam, is personally choosing the targets where he will employ U.S. aircraft. The first display of Air Force One might that we have the figures on was a $700,000 close-support effort in Denver for […]
