Republican Candidates Poll Better than Hillary

rubio The Fox headline, in my opinion, is rather biased: "FOX News Poll: Rubio does best against Clinton in 2016 ballot test." Republicans want a candidate who can beat Hillary Clinton. A new Fox News poll finds Marco Rubio performs best against the presumptive Democratic nominee. Rubio has an eight-point edge: 50 percent to Clinton’s 42 percent. This isn't inaccurate, but I think the more amazing story is that Hillary doesn't poll better than any top Republican candidate! Then again, Clinton -- Read more [...] Continue reading →

Immigrants Now Searching for U.S. Border Patrol instead of Evading

illegal immigration The New York Times reports, "Number of Migrants Illegally Crossing Rio Grande Rises Sharply." The numbers of migrants crossing the Rio Grande illegally have risen sharply in recent weeks, replaying scenes from the influx of Central American children and families in South Texas last year. Once again, smugglers are bringing hundreds of women and children each day to the Mexican banks of the river and sending them across in rafts. In a season when illegal crossings normally go down, “The numbers Read more [...] Continue reading →

Barack Obama Will Be Fighting for His Legacy in Paris

obama thumb When I first saw the headline at Yahoo Politics, "Obama’s legacy on climate is at stake in Paris talks," I skipped over the word "climate" and assumed it was referring to the terrorist attacks. After all, Obama's ISIS policy is arguably responsible for the Muslim refugee crisis, which contributed to the Paris attacks. Obama should be worried about his legacy. But no; the headline refers to the war on carbon dioxide. President Barack Obama heads to a terror-scarred Paris Sunday night to tackle Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Price of Violence

Social Justice What does God desire of us as the disciples of Jesus Christ? Micah 6:8 puts it in a way that you could call…Discipleship Defined - Micah 6:8 “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” Here are three things God requires.  Beginning at the last it is a personal relationship with Him, humbly walking through life in step with Him. That means we hear from Him by reading His Word, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hillary Clinton Advocates Lawlessness: No Illegal Immigrants

Hillary_Clinton_2016 Hillary Clinton could advocate a variety of positions on immigration that, while they might be wrong and dangerous, would not necessarily be lawless. But she has wholly committed herself to pretending that current laws don't exist and we must never mention that people have broken those laws. Yahoo Politics reports, "Clinton promises never to say ‘illegal immigrants’ again." Hillary Clinton addressed criticism of her use of the phrase “illegal immigrants” in a Facebook chat hosted by Read more [...] Continue reading →

Thanksgiving, Collectivism and Christianity

collectivism I know way too many ultraliberal folks. (Probably comes from living in California.) That being the case, Thanksgiving is not only a day for giving thanks, but it is a day of annual inevitability when the conversation at some point will turn and someone will assert that Thanksgiving is the very model of socialism and a demonstration of how collectivism is the moral duty of mankind as demonstrated in the Bible. Said assertion means Thanksgiving is also the day when I annually choke on a piece Read more [...] Continue reading →

Big Pharma Plans to Bankrupt States

Medicare Cuts The Associated Press reports, "New $710-a-day drug hailed as a lifesaver but shows how treatments can strain Medicaid budgets." A newly approved drug is being hailed as a major advance in treatment of cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease that clogs the lungs with mucus and forces patients to struggle to breathe. But it comes with a punishing price tag — about $710 per patient per day. The treatment takes a bite out of Medicaid programs that are already facing big budget problems, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Should Skateboards be Banned Now?

Skateboard-P320- Earlier this week, a young man at a Santa Ana, California, Starbucks acted out of self-defense when an older man approached him and attacked him.  The young man hit the older man with his skateboard.  Eyewitnesses gave this account to a local news station:  A man was pacing back and forth, bothering coffee shop customers outside the Starbucks location, and then began punching the store’s window. The man, who seemed to be on drugs, went inside and zoned in on a young skateboarder, the witnesses Read more [...] Continue reading →

atheist viewpoint Following up from our earlier post about a teacher who told students that God is a myth, here is Jordan Wooley's second confrontation with the Katy ISD school board: According to EAG News, “You tried to cover up the incident. You tried to twist your words to where it was hard to find the truth,” Jordan said from the podium, Fox 26 reports. “You called me a liar without using the word liar.” “If anything has been said that was wrong it was your words, not mine,” Wooley said. “You Read more [...] Continue reading →

Obamacare Is a Socialist Fantasy

obamacare symbol The big news about UnitedHealthcare bailing on Obamacare may make people forget about the failed Obamacare cooperatives and, more importantly, why they failed. Despite the widespread belief that expert planning was involved in the Affordable Care Act, it is pretty obvious that these co-ops were thrown together as the embodiment of a bunch of Liberal/Progressive cliches. They were doomed to fail. According to Reason.com: A government program being poorly run is nothing new, of course. But the Read more [...] Continue reading →
