Ebola! Ebola! Yawn

Ebola! Ebola! Yawn

How is Ebola spread? Two ways; one, by letting anyone exposed to it in West Africa into America when they fly here and, two, by assuming that medical professionals and others who have been exposed to it would quarantine themselves from contact with others once they are here. The latest case is Dr. Craig Spencer, […]

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 […]

Democratic Voting Bloc-Heads

  As this is being written, Rasmussen Reports says that 48% of likely voters approve of President Obama’s performance in office while 50% disapproved.

Now instead of one Ebola patient, we have a dead Ebola patient and a newly infected nurse, with a third showing symptoms as she flies about the country.

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, […]

The Fourth Horseman has Arrived

  “I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” – Revelation 6:8 The Four Horsemen of […]
