Marco Rubio was exactly right when he said Barack Obama knows “exactly what he’s doing.” He may have repeated himself three times too many in the New Hampshire debate, but the point Rubio made to counter his GOP opponents’ attack on his inexperience was spot on.
This should in no way be taken as an endorsement for the junior senator from Florida. I believe that there is a good chance Rubio will be the eventual nominee. However, he lost me when he dismissed the anchor baby problem by sweeping it under the ambiguous 14th Amendment.
Nevertheless, Rubio is right about Barack Obama. He is without a doubt the most transformational president since Ronald Reagan. Continue reading “Marco Rubio was Right”
“It stinks!” That was how incoming Speaker of the House Paul Ryan explained the back room deal hatched by outgoing Speaker John Boehner and Democrat leaders that raised the debt ceiling and put us on automatic pilot to the spending stratosphere through the rest of Obama’s term.
Boehner claimed he was “cleaning the barn” before Ryan took control of the House of Representatives but where is that smell coming from? The entrance to the place is spotless, but the bad odor will linger well after Boehner is gone because of all the brown stuff he piled up in the stalls.
Thanks to Boehner and the Senate’s worthless Mitch McConnell, it’s Obama who will come out smelling like a rose. The nation is on a collision course with the grim reaper over unrestrained spending and all the hard decisions have been put off until the next president takes office.
Does anyone seriously think that Paul Ryan’s hands are clean? Boehner spent weeks begging Ryan to take the reins of the House. If Ryan had put his foot down and said “No” to this deal it never would have happened? Instead, Ryan blessed the deal by voting for it, along with all Democrats and a mere 78 of his Republican colleagues. Continue reading “Boehner’s Gone: Who’s Crying Now?”
The average life of a democracy is 200 years. Our country has outlived its expiration date largely because it is a democratic republic with a constitution that guarantees our citizens certain inalienable rights and a government with three co-equal branches, each with checks on the other two.
We are now seeing those basic rights eroded by an aggressive Supreme Court. We also are seeing those checks and balances upset by an equally aggressive president and a Congress that is reluctant to use the power at its disposal.
Furthermore, the financial stability of this nation has been undermined by our elected representatives who have learned that the best way to stay in office is by spending our money and doing favors for their supporters.
As a result, our economy is at a near standstill and we are mired in debt. China is bullying us, but we owe so much to that communist country there is really nothing we can do about it. This has to stop before it is too late because, as the Bible says, “The borrower is the slave to the lender.”
Just how far have we fallen down slavery’s slippery slope? Continue reading “USA on Slavery’s Slippery Sloap”
“Is there a doctor in the house?”
Once upon a time, that phrase was a common occurrence when there was a medical emergency at a public venue. Today, most doctors are afraid to treat medical emergencies outside of a hospital for fear of being sued. Our healthcare system, which represents one-sixth of our economy, is upside down and Obamacare made the situation worse.
This inept president has put our country in the ER and it is doubtful that the USA, with its $18 trillion debt and future obligations that can’t possibly be met, can survive in its present form. The current condition is not entirely Obama’s fault. Career politicians from both political parties are to blame for this chronic condition. However, it is Obama who has pushed us into the critical care area. Continue reading “Dr. Carson to Emergency. Nation on Life Support!”
While we were feasting on the holiday turkey and celebrating with family and friends, Obama was pulling another fast one. While we enjoyed the Thanksgiving stuffing, he was busy stuffing the federal register with 3,415 new regulations.
At this time of year, average Americans are worried about scraping up some holiday cash Meanwhile, Obama seems hellbent on driving up the cost of everything. Continue reading “Deck the Halls with Federal Regulations (Fa, la, la, la, la – la, la, la. la!)”
“D-Day” is a military term used to denote the beginning of a combat mission.
There is a new D-Day coming. Let’s call it “Decision Day for the United States. It falls on December 11. That is the day the GOP must decide if it will accept the mandate it was given by the American people to lead or if it will run up the white flag of surrender to an unpopular but stubborn president.
If you have been paying attention, then you know that this is the day the government runs out of money. The timing is awful, two weeks before Christmas when most people are busy with the holidays and have checked out politically.
This timing is no accident. The price of liberty really is eternal vigilance. There can be no liberty without the ability to control a fair portion of what we earn which is slowly slipping away with each passing tax increase. And don’t kid yourself, if we don’t get the nation’s spending under control, more hefty tax increases are coming. It’s just a matter of time. Continue reading ““D-Day” for Republicans”
So you think the fact that Republicans now control both houses of Congress there will be a rollback of Obama’s unpopular policies? Guess again.
If you hit the snooze button for another two years, there will be a lot of whining and gnashing of teeth, but nothing important will get done. Obamacare will still be the law of the land. We will still be spending more than we take in and our immigration laws will still be a joke.
But wait a minute. Isn’t this why the electorate gave the Republicans control of Congress? What about the millions that were spent on the ads Repubican candidates were running touting these very things? Aren’t these the very issues this election was supposed to be all about? Continue reading “The bad news? GOP’s same Spineless Leaders”
The current crisis at the border due to the influx of thousand of young people and some children has tugged at our heartstrings and rightfully so.
The U.S. is a welcoming country. We grant permanent legal status to a million applicants a year and temporary visas to countless others as tourists, students or the much abused H-1B program where businesses import workers claiming they can’t find qualified U.S. citizens to fill their job requirements. In addition, we admit thousands more as refugees fleeing persecution based on religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.
Despite what you may have heard, the illegals crossing our southern border do not fall into the refugee category. Most are from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. The problems in these countries are nothing new. All of these governments receive aid from the U.S. but they are inept and fraught with corruption. Continue reading “A Christian Response to the Border Crisis”
In the race for the Iowa Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Tom Harkin one candidate has balls, a lady. Those balls have propelled her into the lead in a crowded Republican primary and they just may be enough to take her all the way to Washington.
Make no mistake. I’m not talking about a transvestite. Those balls belong to Joni Ernst, a mother of three. They are not her own. They are the ones she bragged about taking from the pigs she castrated on her family’s farm in her first 30-second TV commercial. Continue reading “The Lady Has Balls”
There is a saying that originated in the southeastern portion of the United States that explains why this country is in decline: “I’d vote for a yellow dog if he (or she) was a Democrat.” The meaning is simple; no Republican is going to get my vote. No way. No how!
As the Democratic Party began moving left, away from the principles that were embraced by religious conservatives in the south, a blue dog coalition of more moderate Democrats was formed. Although this group of lawmakers has attempted to show independence from its liberal leaders, the blue dogs essentially have been swimming upstream.
Unfortunately, Democrats don’t have a monopoly on the “yellow dog” intractable kind of voter. If the truth be known, most voters have never read their party’s platform or know the issues that define it. They blindly adopt the party label of their parents or have accepted a slogan or sound bite as absolute truth. Continue reading “The Yellow Dog Voter”
