"On behalf of the Obama Adminstration…"

Doug Ross writes:Interviewed on MSNBC, a visibly shaken Jay Barbree -- the longtime NBC science correspondent -- described the duplicity of President Obama. Put simply, Obama's campaign rhetoric -- that he would preserve NASA's cutting-edge science and engineering expertise -- was, like so many of his promises, a fabrication. And he couldn't even tell them to their faces.It was one of Obama's "if you vote for me, I will save your jobs," Lucy-holding-the-football-for-Charlie-Brown … [Read more...]

Please help me thumb my nose at Obama!

The First Iconic Photo of the Obama AdministrationI have no idea how to establish any sort of foundation or charity fund-raising operation. I am very ignorant about most things, and intimidated by the idea of establishing anything.But I have been so angry, for so long, at Barack Obama and the Democrats for dismantling the DC School Voucher program, which was an excellent school-choice solution that gave parents and students a real means of escape from the atrocious schools in Washington DC, … [Read more...]

Obamacare & the Aging Population UPDATES

Since the Democrats last night offered anecdote-after-anecdote in order to justify the passage of Obamacare, I guess anecdotes are now completely fair entries into the debate. Let me offer two of them.A friend of mine listened to the healthcare vote while driving home from a hospital, where he'd spent the day with his 80 year-old father.His father is a robust man, fully in his wits, who only retired "for good" about six months ago. He had retired from his job as a line man and became bored … [Read more...]

"Fear is useless, what is needed is trust."

Pondering the possibility of America being "remade" under the auspices of a Health Care Non-Vote-Deeming, I found myself thinking of St. Patrick, and the conflict between the English and the Irish; the Irish famine and the longview of God, which we cannot see or understand.SourceMany in America -a distinct majority, if polls are to be believed- are against the Health Care reforms we call "Obamacare" and they're angry about the manner in which the Democrat-run Congress is trying to force … [Read more...]

US Flag not flying in Haiti Relief Compound?

Other nations are proudly flying their flags as they assist Haiti in recovering from a devastating earthquake.But the United States is not.Our nation has conducted relief efforts for decades through our military, saving millions of people from death, disease, and starvation. Like France, Britain, and Croatia, we have flown our flag during those operations not to note occupation but to represent the American people’s solidarity with those suffering from disaster. That historical record is a … [Read more...]

"If the whole world were to crumble…"

“The function of the true state is to impose the minimum restrictions and safeguard the maximum liberties of the people, and it never regards the person as a thing.” -- Kant“The more corrupt the State the more numerous the laws.” -- Tacitus“Ninety eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hardworking, honest Americans. It’s the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then, we elected them.” -- Lily TomlinLots of upset people out there, today. I can … [Read more...]

Lies and liars – UPDATE

I've cribbed the video, but after watching it, do go read Ed Morrissey's whole piece. They lie and lie. And they may get away with it, too.The reason they may get away with it, even with boldface lying like this, is because they are assisting in strenghtening the resistance of the world, that there may be no breach by which to "open up space for God’s life to pass through."Am I actually suggesting that at this point The Pelosi and The President are -knowingly or unknowingly, actively or p … [Read more...]

Just how angry are some Americans? -UPDATES

Because all of his pronouncements are subject to sudden change, President Obama, who decried the use of reconciliation on much smaller matters than this, has decided reconciliation is the perfect vehicle by which to tell the American public to shut up and take what he's giving them (language warning), and also take command over 17% of the economy.And he's doing it, all while pretending not to know that America is saying "no."Is that just Obama taking a stab at some plausible deniability? … [Read more...]

Evil Tax Cuts & Humpty Words

Like Instapundit, I have no problem with inaccurate news stories being corrected (although pulling them altogether is a bit dramatic), and so I am happy to read the correct information, which the press has quickly presented to us.The official said when the administration saw the story, published yesterday afternoon, they contacted one of the Reuters White House correspondents.The White House pushed these points:- Our budget explicitly calls for permanently extending the Bush tax cuts … [Read more...]

If Obama v Alito were a murder trial -UPDATED

Still lots of talk in the blogosphere about the president calling out a co-equal branch of government before the whole nation and then inciting another co-equal branch to jeer against it, and Justice Samuel Alito's reflexive, and unheard-only-lip-read reaction.I have followed with great interest the varying opinions, arguments, and thoughtful comments. I was particularly struck by Megan McArdle, though, who wrote:I'm sorry, I'm having a really hard time getting worked up about Alito's … [Read more...]
