The Washington Post Editorial Board has long had a government agriculture policy position that is actually grounded in Reality.
Going back at least half a decade – to the passage of the last terrible Farm Bill – they have been rightly pointing out that the Crony [...]
The release of the proposed Fiscal-Year 2015 Budget released on Tuesday reveals that President Barack Obama and his minions have not abandoned their mission to control guns in the hands of U.S. citizens, even after the abysmal failures last year in the liberal-left’s quest to pass their [...]
Our nation was again unequivocally shown last week that Republicans inside the Beltway are no more to be trusted with the nation’s finances than the Democrats. At a cost to the American people of at least $1 trillion, this lesson came at a bitter price. But it [...]
Congress is on the verge of extruding a new five-year farm bill. President Barack Obama says he will sign it.
As has each and every farm bill for coming up on eighty years:

Congress Seeks to [...]
Four years ago, I celebrated his election to the U.S. House of Representatives. This morning, I signed a petition calling for his removal from office.
Four years ago, U.S. Representative John Boehner, a good Catholic family man from Ohio, was elected to replace Representative Nancy Pelosi [...]

Many hands are being wrung among the elite governing class about Congressional gridlock. The Democrats have invoked the “nuclear option” — allowing the Senate majority in effect to prevail by simple, rather than 60%, majority. (This will come back to haunt them if majority control turns Republican in next year’s election.)
Fortunately for us mere [...]
The Washington Paradox is a short essay published by the political organization known as “Get Out of Our House” (aka GOOOH). Their primary focus appears to be “firing congress” and replacing current elected representatives with others who will be more inclined to serve the American people.

The filibuster has not protected the people against the tyranny of metastasizing federal power. The great tragedy of the Obama dictatorship was not the filibuster’s demise, but that House leaders blocked fulfillment of the very promise that made them leaders. Many of today’s worst problems are due not just to aggressive leftist Democrats who will [...]
Uber-Leftist House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently chided her caucus to vote for a Paul Ryan-Patty Murray budget agreement – which they didn’t particularly like – by telling them to “Embrace the suck.” Stay classy, Congresswoman.
This is the same woman who teed up the ObamaCare [...]
