Thou shalt not steal – or…?

Obamacare brought two circuits to a crossroads of the Constitution

Not a day goes by without someone asking why politicians of the two major parties cannot lay aside their different affiliations and “work together for the good of the country.” But anyone who must ask that question, might never understand why that is impossible, and probably just as well. Because the problem involves the kind of society we want to build and live in. In blunt fact, the members of one side want to steal from some for the unpaid benefit of others. And until they abandon this desire for organized stealing and covetousness, America will not have harmony in politics.

Problems small and large

The problems of taxation and immigration are really the problem of taxation and government giving away free lunch.

Politicians make the news today, talking about problems they say are big problems. In fact, they are small problems, and symptoms of much larger problems. Until the people embrace a solution to the larger problems, even the smaller problems will stay insoluble.

Eric Cantor loses primary

Seal of Virginia. Translation: Thus Always to Tyrants

Representative Eric Cantor, R-Va.-7th, will likely not return to the House of Representatives next winter. The Associated Press, and now the Fox News Channel, report he has lost his primary race to challenger David Brat, who has the backing of the Tea Party.

Martial law tools in place

During his campaign, de facto President Barack Obama promised to build a civilian security force at least as well armed as the military. Lovers of liberty have feared his intent to declare martial law ever since. Yesterday a report appeared in a major newspaper, giving the American people fresh reason to fear such martial law.

Work is a wonderful thing

What would Mark Twain think of a society that devalues work?

The second book of three projected volumes of Mark Twain’s autobiography was published October 5, 2013. In his characteristic blend of humor and reprove, Twain wrote, “Any man who is satisfied to be fed by another man rather than by the honest sweat of his own brow should be shot.” Twain recollects, without exception, those he helped did not appreciate his help, never paid back money loaned, and did not change their debased behavior.

Obama’s lies, his worth, and the world

What difference does it make to Obama?

So, Mr. Obama, how are you doing? Here’s a list of things happened and happening on your watch:

Don’t fight the fruit – chop the root

Obamacare brought two circuits to a crossroads of the Constitution

I’m always looking for the principle behind a thing, the key thing, the root thing, the thing that makes it all work. I can’t walk into a building without starting to analyze the structure to figure out which is a load-bearing wall, which is a facade, what holds this up and what supports that.

Why?

Obama acts like a tyrant. Does that make him worthy of Time's POTY award?

Over these past six years this country has witnessed the most unbelievable “sticker shock” imaginable.  As we awake this morning and face yet another new day filled with more unemployment, America’s health care system eroding to third world-ism, the danger of growing Islamic terrorism, despots and Communist dictators threatening and invading their neighbors, even those whom drank the first few batches of Kool-aid are beginning to ask, why?

Tea Party: another dangerous encounter

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

Anyone, left, right or middle, extreme or moderate, who is able to exhibit even a minuscule amount of honesty, would be very hard pressed to deny that everything conservative groups, such as the Tea Party, have been warning about the Unaffordable Health Care Act (ObamaCare) and the devastating impact it would have on America has come true and in spades.

2.3 million Little Red Hens

The Little Red Hen

Over the last hundred years Americans have seen the socialist/communist/Marxist agenda go from something to despise and fear to something many believe compassionate and desirable. Should these systems prevail and fundamentally change America, many will find the Utopian ideas used by the would-be-tyrants were nothing more than a mask to hide their tyrannical ambitions. They will find something else, something we may learn from the tale of the Little Red Hen.
