    Is Obamacare unconstitutional? Michael McConnell, a former judge for the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, wrote a piece in the WSJ yesterday about Barack Obama choosing not to enforce existing law because it is inconvenient: President Obama's decision last week to suspend the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act may be welcome relief to businesses affected by this provision, but it raises grave concerns about his understanding of the role of the executive in our system of government. Article II, Section 3, of the Constitution states that the president "shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed." This...

    Arron Burr Kills Alexander Hamilton In A Duel Edward Snowden is on the run for his life. He was being asked to perform a job he considered illegal, immoral, and un-American. Supposedly, he lost faith in the leader for whom young people, Leftist Ideologues, and Useful Idiots have placed so much faith. Yet, he knew our Nobel Peace Prize winning president was spying on innocent Americans and people all over the world. Was the spying justified for America’s security or a political ploy for Democrats and possibly Obama to maintain power and control indefinitely? If the spying was strictly for...

    Aside from fears of government intrusion into the private lives of ordinary citizens, what about intrusion from the private business sector of telecoms, internet apps companies, credit card services, and private data aggregators? I finally took time out to watch the 2002 film "Minority Report". Within the movie, which takes place in something like 2056, iris-recognition technology is fully integrated into society: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bXJ_obaiYQ....kinda like today in 2013. The technology is here. Earlier this month was this story about a school conducting iris scans of its students: Parents in Polk County, Florida were outraged after being informed that their children’s...

    I remember once when I was in college I took a trip home to the DC metro area with my girlfriend. She and I went to the movies not far from where my mother lived in a rather rough part of town called Capitol Heights, MD. I have no idea what we saw. I do however remember that we had a terrible time, and it had nothing to do with what was on the screen and everything to do with what was going on in the theater. Not long before this at a different theater a few miles away...
  • Obama Delays Major Component Of ObamaCare…Should We Be Surprised?

    It seems, once again, that Obama and congress have decided that one more part of ObamaCare can't really work right now. I know...shocker! Unable to meet tight deadlines in the new health care law, the Obama administration is delaying parts of a program intended to provide affordable health insurance to small businesses and their employees — a major selling point for the health care legislation. So what does this mean? Small businesses will still have the ability to purchase a health plan for their employees through a health insurance exchange set up under the law. But the employees won’t have...

    The Hartford Courant reports that the Connecticut legislature is going to disclose its proposed new gun laws. Among the proposals is the banning of high capacity magazines. The proposed compromise among legislative leaders would ban large-capacity magazines containing more than 10 bullets – such as the 30-round magazines that Adam Lanza used in the Dec. 14 Newtown school massacre – but would allow owners of existing larger-capacity magazines to keep them if they submit to a new registration system, informed sources have told The Courant. The bipartisan deal reached late last week by legislative leaders also would strengthen the state's...

    Recently Obama played the guilt card in his campaign for gun control as he cranked up the tears. President Obama made an emotional plea for Congress to pass gun-control legislation, telling the political world “shame on us” if it has forgotten the 26 people killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School less than 100 days ago. “Shame on us if we've forgotten,” Obama said Thursday at a White House event where he was flanked by more than a dozen mothers whose children were the victims of gun violence. The president paused for effect several times in his remarks, stating: “I haven't...

    The third birthday of the monstrosity known as the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, has come and gone. It's been about three years since Nancy Pelosi uttered those immortal words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hV-05TLiiLU “But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....” Three years and we're still finding out what's in it. Three years later Obamacare is less popular than ever: According to the Kaiser Health Tracking Poll for March, only 18 percent of Republicans, 31 percent of independents, and 58 percent of members of Obama’s own party, have a favorable opinion of...

    No where is the left's hypocrisy on display more than the 2nd Amendment debate. Check out this Democrat lawmaker: "As a hunter and gun owner, I will not give up my guns and I will not ask other law-abiding Americans to give up theirs," says Thompson, 62, a former state legislator and eight-term congressman. But he wants YOU to give up YOUR guns because "it's common sense" "I know a lot of NRA members and I don't know of any who think they should have the same weapons as the police or military -- or should be able to buy...

    One day soon we'll look back on April 27, 2011 as an important day. Right now liberals think we'll remember it as the day that Obama put the lie to the birthers, but they're wrong. I think we'll remember it as the day Obama's presidency died. Right now, Obama and the left, along with their lapdogs in the MSM, think they've outsmarted the birthers, and that they've engaged in a brilliant game of political brinksmanship. They're thinking that the birthers have shown themselves to be the fruits and nuts of the right, and they made all this hubbub about what...

    Voice of San Diego ^ | 4/06/2006 | Will Carless
    The area's home prices have a 60-percent chance of dropping, one of many factors making San Diego the riskiest real estate market in the nation, according to a quarterly report put out by a California mortgage insurer.The report, put out by the Bay Area insurance company PMI Group, is well-respected by experts, who said it usually gives an accurate picture of the state of the nation's 50 largest home-buying markets. However, they stressed that the report is merely the latest in a long line of analyses that point to something the industry already knows: The nation's housing market is cooling,...
