Unfulfilled promise or lie?

Health insurance premiums are climbing, despite President Obama’s promise that if we passed his reform plan they would drop by $2,500 a year for most families. A new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation underlines that many of the promises surrounding President Obama’s health care legislation remain unfulfilled, though the White House argues that change […]

Covering for Obama

Too much of the mainstream media continues its feeble attempts to prop up President Obama’s class-warfare rhetoric with its ostensible “fact-checking.” Politifraud, which has too often been at the forefront of this effort, weighs in with this beauty, rating Obama’s claim that: "A construction worker who’s making $50 or $60 grand a year shouldn’t be […]

So, it looks like Iran is continuing its stellar human-rights record by planning on executing a Christian for apostasy. As early as this week, the British-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide reports, Iran may execute Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani for refusing to recant his Christian faith. As my colleague Paul Marshall recently wrote, evangelical Pastor Nadarkhani was sentenced […]

I made a mistake last night before I went to bed—I checked my twitter feed. What did I see, a tweet by actor Adam Baldwin (You might know him as Jayne from “Firefly”)  a rare “out” conservative in Hollywood. Had re-tweeted some comments by Sonoma State University Professor Cynthia Boaz. (Thank you Andrew Breitbart for […]

Fundamental rights

I’m not exactly one of those granola-eating, whole food type consumers. I like good-tasting food and if you had to slather the thing in Crisco, bacon and transfats to make it taste good, then that’s all right by me. It’s a free country. At least I thought it was until I came across this classic […]

Science vs. Climate Science

Science: [James] Gillies [spokesman for CERN] told The Associated Press that the readings [suggesting neutrinos can travel faster than the speed of light] have so astounded researchers that "they are inviting the broader physics community to look at what they've done and really scrutinize it in great detail, and ideally for someone elsewhere in the […]

Stupid business moves

First, Netflix/Quikster. I wasn't as miffed as many others were when they decided to split streaming off from the DVD/Streaming combo and charge separately. Yes, the price went up, but not so much (for me) that I still didn't think it was worth the benefits I am receiving. Then they got stupid. It turns out […]

It's all Bush's fault

We're about 2/3 of the way through President Obama's first term and who's to blame for this mess? According to former New York Times executive editor Bill Keller, it's George W. Bush's fault. The decline in Obama’s political fortunes, the Great Disappointment, can be attributed to four main factors: the intractable legacy bequeathed by George […]

Our national joke

President Obama has come out with a plan to rescue the economy from the terrible possibility of a double-dip recession and get our fiscal house back in order by raising taxes by $1.5 trillion on "the wealthy." To be fair, the president has also proposed $1 trillion in savings by winding down the wars in […]
