What’s Worse: A Liar or a Realist?

ryan

In the wake of the horrendous roll-out of Obamacare, there’s been a new narrative emerging, not just in the political rhetoric flying around Washington, but also in the national media. That narrative is that the Republican Party needs to come up with a comprehensive healthcare solution of their own to present as an alternative to…

When Idealism Gets Mugged by Reality

I was watching the Fox News Channel the other day when the host asked a young, liberal man who supports President Obama how he could possibly think that other young men would want to buy a health insurance policy that included maternity care just because that kind of coverage was mandated under the so-called Affordable…

What Happens In D.C. Should Stay In D.C.

I keep hearing that Obama’s poll numbers have never been worse, and I realize that as a conservative, I should be reveling in the news. The reason I’m not as gleeful as I might be is because they remain so damn high. For instance, a recent poll reported that whereas 52% of us think Obama…

The GOP Can’t Let the Dems Off the Hook for Obamacare

Back in 2003, I supported George W. Bush’s decision to take us to war in Iraq. Whenever I mention that fact in one of my columns or somewhere else online, I receive harsh criticism and self-righteous condemnation from some of our friends on the left. Their mindset is basically that Bush lied, soldiers died. And…

Recipes For Success And Disaster

If I knew who sent me the best suggestion I have come across in a long time, I would credit him. Instead, I will simply share his brilliant notion that we put our senior citizens in jail and stick all the criminals in nursing homes. As he pointed out, seniors would have access to showers…
