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…

5 Reasons to Be Thankful for Obamacare

It’s been nearly impossible to find any positive news about the Affordable Care Act lately. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen the roll-out of a $600 million website that didn’t work. We’ve discovered that the Obama administration outright lied to the American public about several of the law’s selling points. We’ve witnessed the cancellations…

Boiling Frogs

ObamaCare is merely the natural extension of the welfare state we’ve evolved into over the past century. We now offer 99 weeks of unemployment insurance, which acts to discourage its recipients from seeking employment; affirmative action, which officially condones racism; a disability insurance program that’s an open invitation to fraud; food stamps for nearly 50…

A One-Man Wrecking Crew

It usually requires an actual dictator to destroy a country. It takes a power-crazed lunatic such as Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Castro or the Ayatollah Khomeini, to turn a nation into a cesspool. That’s what makes Barack Obama unique. In his case, it only took one man to, in his own words, radically transform a free…

It’s Not the Lie… It’s That the Media Suddenly Cares

What exactly constitutes a scandal? I see that question debated on the Internet from time to time, as well as on the news networks. Many people impulsively associate the term with an illegal activity, but the textbook definition of it is actually quite broad and thus fairly subjective: A disgraceful or discreditable action. Thus, what…

“If I Like Your Health Care Plan” and “The Piltdown Man Signs Up for Obamacare”

Years ago, I wrote a TV movie. It was that semi-mythical thing known as a docudrama. That means the basic premise was factual, but names were changed and, more importantly, characters and dialogue were invented so that you would sit there through the last commercial. As it happens, the movie was never produced, mainly because…

Is Obama Clueless — or Dishonest?

I’m always amused when I hear my liberal friends say that they’re pro choice.  What they mean, of course, is they’re pro choice when it comes to abortions. But many of these same liberals support nanny state laws that tell us how much soda we can drink from one cup, or what kind of fats…
