The Customer is Always Right - Except where Healthcare is Concerned
The Invisible Hand, Adam Smith called it. A free market, one truly free, presupposes no judgment upon the collective actions of the participants, since that market will necessarily discipline those who overstep their moral boundaries. Smith understood that the Market is actually an expression of Natural Law, and as such comes from God, and is not merely a construct of Man. The construct of…
I have been saying for years that the Obama Administration has been at war with farmers, but few have listened. In fact, many have believed me to be a crank over this issue. But it's now becoming obvious that I was ahead of the curve.

“Now I am become Death, Destroyer of Worlds”
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Al Gore - the man who was a hairs breath away from being President of the United States - is calling for world population control.
According to The Daily Caller:
"Gore was on a panel at the World Economic Forum in…
What is a nation? Is a nation just a collection of disparate people who happen to live in proximity to one another, or is it something more?
According to Merriam-Webster:
noun \ˈnā-shən-ˈstāt, -ˌstāt\
: a form of political organization in which a group of people who share the same history, traditions,…Continue
"Vote early, vote often" has long been the Democrats motto, and in that vein the great state of Illinois has opened the doors to early - and likely fraudulent - voting.
According to the Belleville News Democrat:
"A new Illinois law permits 17-year-olds to register and vote in a primary…Continue
The threat of open civil war looms large over the Republican Party, and the underlying causes seem to puzzle both politicians and pundits in the GOP Establishment (it's absolutely baffling to the Liberals in the media and Democrats, but that is no surprise.) The rise of the Tea Party has upset the GOP elites, who find themselves under fire from the grassroots of their own party. House Speaker John Boehner illustrated this…
There is an old legal maxim that possession is 9/10ths of the law. What does that mean? Well, in real estate law there is something called the right of adverse possession, which says that if a person occupies a piece of real estate he does not own "openly and notoriously" he can take legal possession of that property (if the lawful owners fail to act) after a number of years. It is also possible to develop an easement, which is a right to trespass on someone…
Recent events in the Garden State http://www.cbsnews.com/news/emails-show-christie-officials-trying-to-control-fallout-from-bridge-gridlock/ have illustrated a serious medical condition affecting the journalism community, one we have witnessed among journalists before. A conniption is a rare psychological disorder, one apparently generated by actions…Continue
It seems that scant weeks pass in this country without another mass shooting, or at least an attempted mass shooting is prevented, and the liberal media quickly jumps on the gun control bandwagon, making it seem that guns are the cause of these shootings. The media never actually addresses the root causes, nor asks why the number of such incidents is rising at this particular historical moment. Guns have always been available, after all. No, something else is happening…Continue
"The immense majority strives after a greater and better supply of food, clothes, homes, and other material amenities. In calling a rise in the masses’ standard of living progress and improvement, economists do not espouse a mean materialism. They simply establish the fact that people are motivated by the urge to improve the material conditions of their existence. They judge policies from the point of view of the aims men want to attain. He who disdains the fall…
West Antarctic Ice Melt; Water or Fire?
Poor Global Warming just can't catch a break. Planetary temperatures aren't cooperating, nor is the rate of sea level rise, and now even West Antarctica seems to be gouging James Hansen in the eye.
Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have discovered a chain of active volcanoes under the West Antarctic ice sheet.…
The Holy Father, in his first encyclical Evangelii Gaudium, has written a controversial document that has upset many Conservatives both inside and outside of the Catholic Church, and there is much acrimony over what the Pope has actually said. The document is long, and not just a bit tiresome, and most people commenting on it have not actually read it - or have read excerpts - and so there is much uninformed talk over this Papal exhortation. I have read the whole…
Just after the announcement of a deal between Tehran and the Western nations over Iranian nukes, a deal that grants essentially a "get out of jail free" card to the Mullahs and their nuclear weapons program, a series of explosions rock the Iranian embassy in Beirut.…
Much has been asked about who Barack Obama is, what he believes. Obama says he is a Christian, and there are many willing to take him at his word, but Christians are commanded to test spirits to see if they are from God, and Mr. Obama's bears scrutiny. I did that scrutiny in an article a few years back at Canada Free Press.

"For now we see through a glass darkly."
That phrase, from the Letter of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians, pretty much sums up the human condition; Man lives in the present here in the material world and remembers the past - and neither of those temporal states are well grasped, because human beings are very limited. We can only see what is in front of us, or what has been told to us by others, and our memories tend to fade with time, often playing…
