Framing the Dialogue

Right to Abort

texasAre you like me and getting tired of the incessant fight from folks who seem driven to kill unborn babies.  No matter how they want to frame the act as “right to choose” it’s still abortion…killing an unborn child.  I’ve heard pro-life pundit predict that history will look back on this period as a very dark period where millions and millions of babies were killed.  Think of how we now look back on slavery.  While I am not trying to equate the two, but you have to admit that ripping out a living child to end its life is at least as bad as slavery.

A Peak Inside

imageEvery so often we get a glimpse of how folks think of us. It might be some angry words…some drunken words…a whisper from someone…or as in this case an arrogant slip of the tongue. This video is of Jonathan Gruber who is regarded as one of the main authors of Obamacare. He is an MIT professor so that makes him smarter than most of us. In the following clip Gruber outlines how Obama and other smart guys like Gruber gamed the American system (actually lied, cheated, stole, etc.) to push through the act of seizing one sixth of the U.S. Economy, better known as YOUR healthcare system.

Defending The Indefensible

vote hereSo you want to register to vote in Arizona. Their state law requires that you produce documents proving that you are a United States citizen. This is pretty simple stuff though! Simple for most of us except that the Obama Administration is taking Arizona to court AGAINST this law. Yes you heard right the United States Government under Obama is fighting against requiring proof that you are a citizen before you register to vote. I know that I keep restating that, but it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for the Democrats/left to fight against having ONLY American citizens vote in our elections. Sorry folks, but this position is indefensible by the left;

Separated At Birth – Buzzi/Ginsburg

Ruth Ann Buzzi:   Ruth Ann Buzzi is an American comedienne and actress of theatre, film, and television and is most known for her appearances on the 60/70s hit show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In.  Before leaving New York for a career in Los Angeles as a television star, Buzzi played in several musical variety shows and television commercials, some of which won national awards including the coveted Clio Award.  Buzzi’s first national recognition on television came on The Garry Moore Show.  In the late 1960s, she was featured as a semi-regular on the sitcom That Girl as Marlo Thomas’s friend.  A versatile comedienne, she played everything from dowdy old women, to tipsy drunks, to Southern belles to flashy hookers.  Her most famous character is the dowdy spinster Gladys Ormphby, clad in drab brown with her bun hairdo covered by a visible hairnet knotted in the middle of her forehead. In most sketches, she used her lethal purse, with which she would flail away vigorously at anyone who incurred her wrath.

News Briefs – Volume XXXI – Very UnCONSTITUTIONAL

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how Obama’s unconstitutional actions WILL affect your life

Brief 1:  One option that a president has to get some of his controversial nominees appointed is to wait for Congress to recess and then is able to appoint them to a limited term.  I remember celebrating W’s recess appointment of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador.  Obama stired controversy on recent recess appointments because Congress was not actually in recess.  The Supreme Court and settled law had determined that if Congress was not in session for three or more days then they were in recess.  Obama, with the backing of his Justice Department waited ONE DAY to claim a recess and appoint his henchmen.  Fortunately we have a strong Congress who cares about maintain the delicate balance of the three branches of government and will soon fix/find a way to reverse the appointments – – Oh wait we don’t have enough Congressmen with the guts to take on Obama.

News Briefs – Volume XXVII – The Supremes

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories.  This edition is all about SCOTUS…

If you think that the next presidential election is only about Obamacare and other Obama policies, please notice the narrow victories in the United States Supreme Court for centrist issues.  The next judge could be a crucial swing vote.

Boeing Boeing Gone

I have not had the opportunity to see the movie interpretation of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (i.e. the closest theater is about an hour away), but it feels more and more like I am living the story.  I’ve read the novel twice since my first time when I was awakened bythe vultures depicted by Rand.   It was hard to be disgusted by a parasitic nation that sucks the life out of productive people to prolong their reign.  It is hard to watch former great companies like Jack Welch’s General Electric mooch off of Obama to gain favor for their subsidiaries while, in my mind, pretending to be a capitalist company.  Businesses have always done this, but the level of government interference seems obscene.
