Pro-Life Group Gains Access to School Facilities

Population Control and the Decline of the West

Whether they act knowlingly of the catastrophic predicament we face is really not important. Their goals will insure the continued decline of the west and even their own eventual demise.

Population Control in an Aging Society

Most would agree that conserving resources and minimizing adverse impacts on the environment make sense, but something has gone terribly awry within the Green Movement.

New hate crimes law is a mistake

We already have a source, which instructs against murder and to love your neighbor as yourself. But this has been banned from our schools and our public spaces. So once again, in what is becoming our Godless nation, we mistake the disease for the cure.

Why Your Representatives Should Make You Mad as Hell

Imagine a world exempt from parking tickets, where gym membership is free and health care is second-to-none. In order to receive these benefits, you also only have to work two, maybe three days a week—a time period during which you will be shuttled around in a nice car. The other days of the week you can spend at home with your family. Welcome to life in congress.

‘Public Option’ Titanic Strikes Iceberg, Fleeing Senators Take to the Lifeboats

The unsinkable ship of ObamaCare—expected into port as long ago as last July—has hit an iceberg. And it now appears that there are few, if any, airtight compartments left to help it stay afloat as it flounders gracelessly on the cresting waves of public opinion.

Speaking of Seniors – Lab Demanded Over $2,000 from Senior

Sign-o-the-Times: The Obama-Nation

The Obama-Nation is a sign of the times. And a sign of the times describes the Obama-Nation.

Opaque Transparency or Smoke and Mirrors

The pledge of the most transparent administration in history has quickly devolved into something more like the smoke and mirrors that passes for representative government in a one party state like Chicago.

Fighting for a Good Cause with a Good Sense of Humor

Fighting for a good cause with a good sense of humor lifts the spirits of allies and often lowers the spirits of the enemies of the good cause.

End of Life Care Should Not End Life

If our leaders in Washington are unable or unwilling to come up with a uniquely American solution to the health care issue, and if the looming healthcare crisis continues to be exploited by leaders on the Left simply as a means to a greater ideological end, there is good reason to fear that the cold comfort of England’s “care pathway” approach to end-of-life care may be coming soon to a hospital near you.

Parker: The health-care fatal conceit

Do you get the feeling that what Americans once fought for we’re now giving back? This country is about freedom. There’s no substitute for the fruits of personal responsibility. Giving it up for the conceit of socialism is indeed a fatal mistake.

GOP On Notice: Ditch the RINOs or Keep Losing

The latest Rasmussen poll shows a huge majority of Republican voters believe their party has lost touch with the voters and are not representing Republican values. If the GOP establishment continues to push liberal RINOs on their base, they had better get comfortable in their recent trend of losing elections.

Speaker of the House Embraces Unconstitutional Government

You can add Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to the list of leaders in Washington who are far too ignorant (or contemptuous of our Constitution) to be allowed to continue leading our country. She says she doesn’t think the question of whether constitutional authority exists for a government health care system is a serious question.
