The US Constitution does not need to be replaced or scrapped, as a number of folks on the left have suggested going back to President Woodrow Wilson. It does not need to be cured of its fatal flaws, so that Obama can implement redistribution of wealth and “break free” from the negative liberties placed by the founding fathers to prevent this, as Obama said in 2001.
Nevertheless, there are major problems with our current government. Some examples after a design overview: Continue reading
Two events occurred in recent days which are connected. Both involve the Ikhwan, the Muslim Brotherhood. Continue reading
I was challenged in another forum recently because I had indicated that fewer than 5% of the workforce was at minimum wage. She had heard differently: Continue reading
I had a bit of a health scare last week — and survived it, thanks to the wisdom of two doctors who are also friends. Other doctors were involved in supporting roles; I appreciate them as well.
I’d been feeling bad for a while; the loss of my Lady and other factors had wrecked my digestion. Ten days ago (Thursday April 18), I had blood tests done. The results came back Monday, when the lab calling me to say that I needed to do the tests over again, they could not trust the results. I was feeling worse, and suspected that the anomalous results were not wrong. Continue reading
I am not particularly familiar with The Christian Science Monitor. It does not appear to be connected to “mainstream” Christianity — and is instead evidently another Obama administration support organ, like MSNBC, but with a religious slant. Continue reading
A brief follow-up on that lead image from the Washingtonian Mom section on Jay Carney and Claire Shipman I wrote about this morning.

There’s a bit of tittering, and Twittering, on the Internet about a Washington “power couple” and the photographs of their home in a piece in the Washington puff-magazine called the Washingtonian. Most are treating the pictures as unintentionally hilarious, and I can see that — the Photoshop work is crude indeed. Continue reading
There are several pieces of information being held — and not disclosed — by most news services. In other cases, the news appeared and then was rushed off the stage as too big to ignore but too embarrassing to talk about.
The Abortion of News
There was a conviction of an abortion clinic operation for Medicare fraud and other offenses. The clinic’s building is co-owned by a gynecologist … who happens to be the “First Lady of Justice,” the wife of Attorney General Eric Holder. She was not charged — but unquestionably, as the landlord of the operation, she and her husband (and sister) received proceeds from the operation’s fraud. Had she been a Republican, this connection would be in the news night and day. But being an abortion clinic, it’s a darling of the Left, and being a close connection to Left-anointed figures, means that this is not a news item. When Tyrone Cecil Malloy’s conviction is mentioned locally, the clinic’s landlords are not mentioned. Continue reading
