The Closing of the Presidential Mind – Part 3 – Unveiled Ignorance: Obamacare and its Roots

obmcr2How did Obama end up in this morass? Health-care reform long has been a central focus of modern American liberalism. The high priest of American socialism who offered the substance for these policies was John Rawls, an American political philosopher. Obama absorbed his views at Harvard Law […]

RIGHTS!

How often have you heard someone say “that’s my right!” Or, “health care, food, shelter, education, is my right.” Or, “I can say anything I want, it’s my right.” But how many of you have actually thought through exactly what is a right?

On Hippocrates, Galen and the Nature of Ancient Medicine

ms-snk“First do no harm.”

~ Aphorism attributed to the Hippocratic Oath

Failure to Acknowledge Failure

Democrats’ Snoopy Dancing

obmcr5The other day I came across an article on CNN entitled, “Why are Some Democrats Running Away from Obamacare?,” a truly comical piece which would be even funnier were it not mere cheerleading disguised as analysis.

Sacrifice: The Difference Between Liberals and Americans

The Freer the Trade, the Better Things Get

frmblThe West Wing was for several years a fabulous television show – about a Democrat White House. Yes, I know, I’m a conservative and I wasn’t supposed to like it. But great writing is great writing, and Aaron Sorkin can seriously write. (He doesn’t bat 1.000, but […]

The New Task for Democrats: Fall on Obama’s Sword

obmcrdmsThe Democrats, liberals and progressives in America have been assigned a distinctively political obligation to keep in step and in sync with their chosen one, Barack Hussein Obama. Why? Not to help America as a whole but to maintain the illusion of Obama’s success. They have been […]

Marginalizing The Movement That Can Save America

rns11Ever since the 2009 advent of the Tea Party, Democrats on Capitol Hill and the liberal media have been obsessed with its destruction.

A Teachable Moment: Lessons From The Obamacare Debacle

gncntrl9The 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 […]

Obamacare Puts Your Personal Data at Risk

Smoking Out RINOs: The Much Needed Political Realignment

rn2Our 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 […]

Obamacare and the Keystone XL Pipeline

 

By now everyone who has kept an intelligent eye on current events knows that Obamacare is not about making medical care less expensive or more available. Obviously, the cost of medical “insurance” plans has gone up instead of down, as originally advertised. So has the end cost to consumers of medical care. With higher […]

Jason Furman’s Big Lie

 

When the Congressional Budget Office projections came out on February 4, it was exactly what yours truly expected. After all, every time the government meddles in the economy the regulations end up causing trouble, which invariably means a loss of jobs. Obamacare was not going to be an exception. The only issue was what […]

Countering The Ruling Class Amnesty Betrayal

mccn-lndsygrhmIt is high time to reassert those quaint notions of “compelling U.S. interests.” From the nature of America’s economic relations with the rest of the world to the definition of its sovereignty and the integrity of its borders, this people of this country are continually being told […]

The Senate and Federalism – A Failure of Checks and Balances

When the Constitution was amended in 1913 to allow election of U.S. Senators by public vote it was a major change in the way in which the federal government operated. It also radically changed the power structure within the legislature, to the effect that one of the major checks on federal power was removed, paving […]

Government Gridlock, Saving America From Even Worse Laws

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.)
