Obama stimulus plan: Elderly beware

Betsy McCaughey has a commentary on Bloomberg about how the Obama stimulus plan is going to overhaul healthcare in the country so that ” individuals benefit in younger years and sacrifice later.” Is this really what Americans want? Elderly Hardest Hit Daschle says health-care reform “will not be pain free.” Seniors should be more accepting of the […]

Obama hypocrisy

Filed under Politics

Even CNN is pointing out the President’s hypocrisy: Can’t embed the video for some reason, so here’s the link. Unfortunately, we are again asking the president to explain why exactly he announced, with great fanfare, new ethics rules if he had no intention of abiding by them. The Obama administration is yet again asking for […]

A democrat state’s idea of punishment

Filed under Politics

In Massachusetts, people who commit violent crimes can expect to watch television on high-definition, flat-screen televisions. Is it any wonder why democrats have a reputation of being soft on crime? While state employees face layoffs, one state is spending thousands of dollars to ensure prison inmates can watch the Super Bowl from 117 brand new […]

Chuck Colson on socialized medicine

There was an interesting BreakPoint commentary today about socialized medicine in Britain. Bruce Hardy probably doesn’t have long to live. But he could live longer, if it weren’t for the attitude and policies of the British government. As recounted in a New York Times article, Mr. Hardy has kidney cancer that has spread to his […]

Is it alive, dead or an inanimate object?

Wow, just got this video from Ash123. Ilana Goldman, president of Women’s Campaign Forum (WCF), is a major proponent of forcing taxpayers to fund abortion, but she is unwilling to answer the simple question of whether the fetus is living, dead or an inanimate object–not from a moral perspective, but from a purely scientific perspective. […]

The problem with redistribution of wealth

Filed under Politics

Walter E. Williams puts forth a good argument in his latest article: Imagine there’s an elderly widow down the street from you. She has neither the strength to mow her lawn nor enough money to hire someone to do it. Here’s my question to you, and I’m almost afraid for the answer: Would you support […]

Socialized healthcare is not without its problems

Filed under Politics

I’m no expert on healthcare systems, but I think we better look before we leap. I believe the problems in our own system are fixable, and I’m afraid many people are unaware of the problems of other types of systems. Take Japan, for example. It seems like almost every month I hear a new story […]

Mourning the death of the American idea

I’ve been really busy lately with work and probably will be for the next several days, so my posts will be few and far between. I did, however, want to share this article by Mark Steyn. I disagree with my fellow conservatives who think the Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Frank liberal behemoth will so obviously screw up that they’ll […]

Praying for Obama

HT: Kansas Bob Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson publishing, encourages Christians to make these four commitments to our new president: I will pray for him and our country. I will assume his motives are good, giving him the benefit of the doubt. I will not speak ill of him, even if I don’t always […]

A McCain-Palin Landslide?

Here’s hoping Paul Marston is correct. My gut tells me McCain is going to win, too (although I believe it will probaby be a clincher). The opinion polls historically favor Democrats by large margins. I’d say this time around it’s no different.
