The Six Million Dollar Man vs. the One BILLION Dollar Website

majors

Bloomberg’s Peter Gosselin recently reported that the taxpayer cost of Healthcare.gov (aka the Obamacare website) has now surpassed one billion dollars. Yes, that’s billion with a b! This is certainly a far cry from the original projected cost of the project, which was stated to be no more than $93.7 million. When we found out…

How Would Liberals Treat a Black Conservative in the White House?

I know it’s been several weeks since Oprah Winfrey told a BBC interviewer in London that President Obama has been a victim of racism.  And yes, I know that by now it’s old news.  So in the spirit of the holiday season I’ll not only be brief, but polite, civil and kind too. Ms Winfrey…

Give Thanks

My husband and I are heading out to Denver to spend Thanksgiving with my family.  Thinking about the holiday and what I’m really grateful for is the love of my husband, my family, and my friends.  I wrote this article a couple of years ago but, with some changes, it continues to express my feelings perfectly.

Lisa, 30, quit her job at McDonald’s after just three months and Carrie-Ann 23 has never worked at all.  Outrageous. They each had one child before becoming…

The Evolution of ‘Extremism’ in the Era of Obama

One doesn’t have to look all that far to find proof of the gross hypocrisy that has come out of Washington over the past five years. As conservatives like to point out, the words spoken by U.S. Senator Barack Obama and other top Democrats during the Bush era are often diametrically opposed to the things…

The Lefty Buffoonery That Republicans Need to ‘Shut Down’ Once and For All

warren

One of the residual effects of this week’s government shutdown and the implementation of Obamacare has been a sharp uptick in political commentary across social media. At least, that’s what I’ve been seeing when I’ve logged into my online accounts over the past few days. I’m not talking about the normal activity. There are certainly…
