Example of the Liberal Definition of Civility

Example of the Liberal Definition of Civility

The next time a liberal lectures you on “civility,” hearken back to this illustration of “civility.” After all, Leftist President Barack Obama has told us that we must be civil, understanding, compromising, and so on and so forth. And Leftist President Barack Obama has provided for us–leading by example–an illustration of how “civility” is done.

Does a Hard Debt Ceiling Have to Mean a Default?

Does a Hard Debt Ceiling Have to Mean a Default?

The nation is fast approaching the Oct. 17 supposed deadline for Congress to increase debt limit. After that, according to Treasury officials, the nation will default on its obligations to creditors. But is a default really necessary? Wouldn’t the Treasury just prioritize interest payments to creditors out of the more-than-ample revenue we take in and refinance existing debt up to the statutory limit?

The Founders on ObamaCare and the Shutdown

James Madison is known as the Father of the Constitution. Wouldn’t it be nice if Madison had been kind enough to leave a series of writings talking about what the document means, how the various branches of government should operate and the powers each enjoy? He did. Wouldn’t it be nice if Madison had written about the “power of the purse” of the House of Representatives to shed light on our current situation? He did.

Remember: The Fight is About ObamaCare

Remember: The Fight is About ObamaCare

Heritage Action reminds us of something my wife was saying yesterday when we discussed all these spiteful ways in which the Obama Administration is trying its hardest to make the government shut down “hurt” Americans in their everyday pursuits. It’s easy to highlight all the petty ways in which President Obama is trying to maximize pain, but we must not forget what the fight is really about.

Monticello

Photos: Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello

During my family’s recent vacation in the Washington D.C. area, we rented a car and drove down to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s majestic home, and below are some photos from our visit. In addition to the unique look of the house on the outside, we found that Jefferson was quite the scientist and inventor.

AP Poll: Obama at Low 37% Approval

AP Poll: Obama at Low 37% Approval

Polls can be interesting in a broader context sometimes, especially when comparing “mainstream” media reactions. Such is the case with a new AP poll in which you have to dig down a bit to learn that President Obama’s approval rating has cratered at 37%. President Bush had a higher rating at this same point than Obama now enjoys.

South Dakota Governor Update on Parks

South Dakota Governor Update on Parks

Despite the ongoing shutdown of the federal government, all state parks and state hunting areas in South Dakota remain open, Gov. Dennis Daugaard said today. Prior to the federal government shutdown, Gov. Daugaard offered state resources to keep Mount Rushmore National Monument open. The National Park Service rejected the Governor’s offer saying the entire National Park System should be closed during the shutdown.

Would Jesus Party With You, Or Would You Party With Jesus?

Would Jesus Party With You, Or Would You Party With Jesus?

Have you ever noticed how the only time liberals are even remotely interested in Jesus is when they distort his teachings to excuse their Godless socialism? Liberals are good at revising history, and the ignorance of many Americans helps them get away with it. Christians who consider themselves too spiritual to get involved in the political arena help them even more; they forfeit the arena to the opposition without a fight.

Debt Ceiling Flashbacks

Debt Ceiling Flashbacks

A few reminders for President Barack Obama, who wants to push our $17 TRILLION in debt even higher. I almost never like anything Leftist Charlie Rangel has to say, but he has a good analogy here: The request sounds like a drunk going to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting saying ‘Just give me one more drink and I won’t do it again.’

The HHS Mandate and The Creepy Government Shutdown

The HHS Mandate and The Creepy Government Shutdown

Tragically, some of our government leaders are using scare tactics to numb our consciences, to instill fear in us and turn our hearts away from genuine justice. Please make no mistake about it, the government shutdown is about the HHS Mandate which if allowed will force harmful contraceptives and easy access to abortion on our boys and girls.
