Durbin Thinks the Gov’t Has Profits to Spend

In a perfect example of Progressive thinking, Sen. Dick Durbin (P-IL), has taken issue with the idea of lawmakers and congressional staff having to be subjected to the mandates of Affordable Care Act, a.k.a., Obamacare. As people like Durbin, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid throw around rhetoric like “hostage,” “extortion,” “legislative arson,” etc., they are – at the very same ...

Worth The Effort for Several Reasons

As US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), continues his “filibuster” of Obamacare, many in the so-called Conservative punditry have smugly dismissed the effort as futile, tunnel-visioned in their understanding of why Cruz’s actions are not only critical to the eventual repeal of Obamacare, but to the effectiveness of the Republican Party and the survival of representative government. A cursory examination of ...

There are two statements one can make with certainty about the current situation inside the beltway. First, truth is a rare commodity. What was promised to be the most transparent administration in American history has proven to, by comparison, make Richard Nixon’s Administration look like Wikileaks. And second, the Republican Party, at its highest level, has a lethal messaging problem. ...

Dispensing with the ‘It’s the Law’ Rhetoric

Over the past few months, Progressives and Democrats who favor the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) – both elected and not – have insisted that the new and expanding entitlement will go forward as planned because, after all, it is “the law of the land.” When I ponder this statement I find myself less inclined to laugh and more inclined to ...

Are None of Them of Value

It is really quite amazing what we witness in the United States of America today. On May 25, 1787 the Constitutional Convention opened.  One hundred sixteen days later, on September 17, 1787 they concluded their official work.  All but one of the thirteen states (excluding Rhode Island) participated in the convention.  Those twelve States gave unanimous order the Constitution should ...

obamacare fallout

Talk about hypocrisy.  Key members of Congress are said to be working to find an ‘opt-out’ for themselves and their aides from Obamacare. Politico is reporting that “leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health ...

Illegal Aliens and Amnesty By Dictate

Don't Tread On Me

The more things change the more they stay the same.  I am amazed at the scam Marco Rubio is trying to pull on the American people.  The “Gang of 8” comes up with this great plan that will “protect We the People” while showing some “compassionate conservativism” towards those who break our immigration laws.  Of course, as is the usual case, ...

Obama’s America Becoming a Police State

Obama's Gestapo

The video link here is beyond chilling.  The most chilling aspect of its beginning is the looks on the faces of the people.  These are people who seem to be surprised and confused.  These things don’t happen here!  It often seems as though things happen overnight but it doesn’t happen that way. Tyranny doesn’t happen over-night.  It happens in a series ...
