Let’s Not Forget Others In This Difficult Time

Along with not panicking and being smart about washing hands, etc., we need to think about making sure the less fortunate have food in this time of mass disruptions to our systems. Nearly 29 million school kids are on “free lunch” programs at their schools. Now that that essentially all gatherings of more than 50Continue reading “Let’s Not Forget Others In This Difficult Time”

Pork Bill Showdown: A Win For the GOP

The resounding win by the Republicans in November holds the promise of getting some control on spending in Washington. It seems, for the moment, that Congress is focusing on this goal, thanks to its members’ feet being held to the fire by the Tea Party. Like the 2006 election, the 2010 midterms were decided byContinue reading “Pork Bill Showdown: A Win For the GOP”

Liberals Flunk Economics 101

According to a Zogby survey (buried by the mainstream media as an irrelevant news item), self-identified Democrats and Progressives score badly on a simple test of economic understanding.

Half-wit Alvin Greene, who ran for the Democratic Senate nomination to challenge sitting (which is about all they do) Sen. Jim “Never NeedsContinue reading “South Carolina Goes Greene”

Larger Implications In Health Care Heist

When Barack Obama played Monopoly as a kid, I can only imagine he did not carefully cultivate a business reputation and earn enough money to buy properties on Boardwalk and Park Place. He probably created a special Democratic version of Monopoly, the Hugo Chavez Edition, where he would denounce the owners of properties as “greedyContinue reading “Larger Implications In Health Care Heist”

ObamaCare: A Game Of Hide-and-Seek From Deemonpass Democrats

Obama says we have been “debating” the ObamaCare bill for a year, and now it’s time to ram it through in a down – or up-yours anyway – vote. In the first tough interview of his Presidency, he told Fox News that he would know what is in the bill 72 hours before the HouseContinue reading “ObamaCare: A Game Of Hide-and-Seek From Deemonpass Democrats”
