In the wake of revelations that the IRS was used as a thuggish enforcement arm of the Obama campaign come further allegations of snooping by the NSA. Suddenly we feel we have a creepy stalker. George Orwell's foretold world of an all-intrusive government is upon us.
Much has been made of Obama using the coercive power of government to go after political opponents and to intimidate dissenters. I've been out of the country, so allow me to make even more of it — assuming this column is not seized by Eric Holder's Department of "Just-Us."
Near the 2012 election, and after bragging about killing bin Laden based on intelligence gained by water boarding (a tactic he campaigned against), Obama and his O-bots lied to us about Benghazi.
My Invitation to Deliver a High School Commencement Address and Why the Bottom Half of the Class Won't Care
In yet another bad decision, an education administrator asked me to give a high school commencement speech. The principal must know I write a column but he obviously hasn't read it very often.
If ObamaCare is such a great idea, why does Congress want out?
Georgia wants to take land on the Tennessee/Georgia border that it does not own and drain the Tennessee River. Tennesseans see no reason to give Georgians the straw through which they can drink the Volunteer State's milkshake.
Evil dictator-in-training Kim Jong-un was running a little short of cash and attention last week, so he announced plans to nuke the United States. The 30-year-old Lil' Kim inherited his evil dictating business from his dad, Kim Jong-il, who got it from his dad, Kim Il-Sung, who acquired North Korea in a hostile takeover in 1948.
Homosexuality and gay marriage are two of the most unnecessarily divisive social issues facing this nation.
Remember when Obama got his trillion-odd dollars of "stimulus money" which he and the Democrats breathlessly said we needed for "shovel ready" jobs to re-build roads and infrastructure?
Most old school Republicans remind me of a man running for mayor on a platform of outlawing dancing at the high school prom. Obama reminds me of the guy you have dinner with who orders an expensive wine and then makes sure he's in the bathroom when the bill comes.
Congratulations to all sequester survivors! I know it was tough getting through the 2.2 percent cut in growth of "non-essential" government "services," even with one fake Washington snow day thrown in last week.
It seems to be an American article of faith that one must get as many degrees as possible. Yet few consider that education, due to a lack of competition, cost controls and innovation, no longer represents the value proposition it once did.Tags Politics
Sequestration happens - and it is the only way Washington can be forced to cut the growth of spending. Remember, the $85 billion politicians are howling about (out of a $3.7 trillion dollar budget) is only a 2.2% cut. It is a reduction in the growth of spending, not in spending itself.
Watching Nancy Pelosi spend our money is like watching the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" justify their decadent shopping sprees. After the largest tax increases in history were pushed through by Democrats at year's end, Pelosi and her insatiable tax-and-spend liberals want more.
In his State of the Union address Tuesday, President Obama did what he does best: blame others to divert attention from his own failings on the economy. Every ill we have, per him, is because of a bill of his Congress won't pass. Where is that "you lie" when you need him?
