Woven into the fabric of our unique American culture is the timeless wisdom of founding father, Benjamin Franklin. Franklin, the author of the phrase, “An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure”, would be appalled at much that is going on in American politics, but probably not…Continue

How wrong he is
The nanny mayor couldn't be more wrong about borrowing if he tried, we can only borrow if people are willing to buy the debt. There is no infinite amount of money we can borrow as Bloomberg claims, at some point people aren't going to take future risk of being paid back. The treasury has been playing games with our borrowing from sometime now, don't expect that to change any time soon.…Continue

Congress’ lame-duck session is forcing lawmakers to make important decisions affecting the future of medicine before a new Congress convenes in 2013.
Tough decisions will have to be made, but the AMA’s position is clear: Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle must make stopping a 26.5 percent cut to Medicare physician payments, driven by the flawed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula and scheduled…
Democrats in Congress are changing their tune on means testing in Medicare, an idea the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) resisted for decades.
Leading Democratic lawmakers have suggested that raising premiums…

You smashed your new car into a telephone pole and realized you forgot to buy collision insurance. No matter, the government just made it illegal to deny insurance coverage or charge higher rates to anyone regardless of a vehicle’s condition. A simple phone call to your insurance agent and that $3,000 repair bill is taken care of! Don’t forget to call your agent and cancel the coverage after you drive away from the body shop. After all, you can obtain…Continue
Well it is election season in Florida and we have a reputation for causing minor controversy – remember the 2000 election where President Bush won Florida by a few hundred votes? As I have repeatedly said Florida is the key in deciding who will be President and can help shift control of the U.S. Senate this…Continue
So let’s look at The Life of Julia the Pathetic Loser.
At the age of 3, Julia is enrolled in a Head Start Program where she will learn about Heather’s two mommies, the joys of masturbation, the foolishness of freedom, and the hypocrisy of the American Founding Fathers.
She will learn the identity of the real Messiah, the Kenyan Barry Soteoro, and the American President who single handedly lowered the level of the oceans and saved planet earth from stupid humans while…Continue

This was a difficult post to write. As the title suggests, last night’s State of the Union Address was a mind bending freak show. I felt like I was watching an episode of the Twilight Zone. Obama and I were of necessity looking at two different planets. How do you write a cohesive review when the presentation was itself disconnected from reality?
Talk about the burden of duty: right off the bat the Speaker had to…Continue
"We need to make sure we tone the rhetoric down" – now Americans would agree to that statement as we enter the Presidential Election for 2012. But, there’s a slight problem here – the messenger that made this statement is Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Debbie as we all know is the “Mouth” for the Democrats; she’s…Continue
I can't imagine how anyone in America today can't see what is going on, can’t see what is happening to their freedom. Sadly, too many people don't want to see what is happening, but ignoring the problem won't make it go away. Not only will the problem not go away, it will fester and get worse like a wound that doesn't get washed, medicated, and bandaged.
The festering wound that too many people don't want to see is the government, both political parties. This…Continue
Republicans running for Congress next year, whether incumbents or first-timers, will face a barrage of ads charging that they'll cut or even kill Medicare. We've seen that in the two most recent special Congressional elections in NY and Nevada, and it didn't work, but in part because the Democratic candidate in each district was a very weak candidate with little to offer voters. Republicans will need every idea possible to avoid being tarred. One idea that I hope Republicans will support…Continue

What part of “the Paul Ryan Budget Proposal does not affect the Medicare of seniors 55 and older” do democrats and the liberal media not understand? Why would the democrats produce a blatantly lying video ad showing Congressman Ryan pushing granny over a cliff…Continue
