Living Without Limits

I’m reminded of the old Toyota commercial jingle, “You asked for it, you got it, Toyota”.  President Obama asked for it, he got it.  It’s his economy and debt now and he can no longer blame everything on Bush.  He may try but I don’t think that most Americans will buy it.  Some will clearly.  But they are the true…

Pretty Dadgum Important

Well, President Obama’s hair-brained idea is about to come true, sequestration.  In spite of what he says, it was his idea as amply explained by Bob Woodward here.   Obama’s sequester deal-changer Down here in Texas we have a name for people like President Obama who do something and then say they didn’t.  That’s right, a dissembler.  A Texan considers…

Obama, Commanded By God

Ok, this is getting interesting now.  I didn’t watch any of the inaugural events but I read today that in speaking of his policies on climate change that President Obama said that we should “preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God.” As a Christian that is encouraging to me.  Let’s explore this in a little more depth. As…

Sick Around the World

PBS Frontline did a series on healthcare systems in 5 industrialized countries -United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, Taiwan and Switzerland.  It is very informative.  Frontline tends to have a leftist slant but nevertheless this is a thought-provoking look at how healthcare is delivered in other countries and gives one a basis for comparison to our system, both pre-ObamaCare and after.  The…

$80 Billion Dollar Question

What happens if millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share according to President Obama’s formulations?  Forget about the fact that people who make $250 thousand per year are not millionaires or billionaires.  Everyone acknowledges that the increased tax revenues will amount to about $80 billion per year.  President Obama has staked his entire presidency on being able to say that…

Lest We Forget

When Harry Truman assumed the office of President of the United States in a joint session of Congress after the death of President Roosevelt and near the culmination of the Second World War he closed his speech to thunderous applause.  What did he say? It is instructive to reflect upon what our leaders have said in the past.  It is…
