They Get the Subsidy, Taxpayers Get the Bill

  Right now Sen. David Vitter, R-La., is not very popular in Harry Reid’s Democrat Senate. The irony is he may not be much more popular with the leadership in Mitch McConnell’s Republican Senate next year.   Vitter is one of those annoying people who believe members of the House and Senate should be subject […]

No Ebola Panic Despite Media Hysteria

  One man has died of Ebola in the U.S. and he came here from Liberia. Two of the nurses that tended him are in intensive care and likely to survive. A third was thought to be infected, but wasn’t. That news has been sufficient to keep most Americans calm as the media has done […]

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 […]

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 […]

Veterans Are the Healthcare Canary in a Coal Mine

| May 30, 2014 | 1 Comment

Between today and June 6th’s 70th anniversary of the D–Day landing I want you to find a veteran and talk to him. This doesn’t mean cornering some unsuspecting vet and ambushing him with the latest insipid leftist cliché: ‘Thank you for your service,’ which manages to be both pretentious and condescending. (However, it is an […]

Some of us old, grizzled, scarred-up, graybeard veterans of multiple past skirmishes with power hungry Leftist zealots in our government are actually gratified today.  Why, you ask?

If you type in “Obamacare” on Wikipedia you will discover 25,500,000 links. That’s a lot of news coverage and related commentary about the Affordable Care Act. Most of it is negative. The more people have learned about it, the less they like it and, if we had a Congress that could or would do anything […]

America has arrived at a point at which it has never been in its 226 years of existence since the Constitution became effective in 1788. It has a President for whom that Constitution is routinely ignored in his quest to “fundamentally transform” America into a nation it has never been despite the slide into progressive […]

Looking Into My 2014 Crystal Ball

Pundits are expected to make predictions for the year ahead and far be it for me to avoid what, generally speaking, depends on who is making them. Major trends are already in place and easy to predict as they proceed, but it is always unknown events that upend predictions. Mother Nature and perpetrators of evil […]
