The Switch in Time that Saved Nine

OwenRoberts

The relationship between the new Republican majority in Congress to Obamacare has been much discussed. Folks following the history of US Supreme Court decisions will perhaps remember when Justice Roberts changed his mind on a crucial decision under pressure from the White House, and rendered the crucial swing vote that had the country in an uproar.

Indigestible Blocs

“I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished. “I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors. America is indeed a joining together of many streams which go to form a mighty river which we call the American way. However, we have in the United States today hard-core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies.” […]

Term Limits

VoteForMe

I’ve been thinking about the term limits issue, and came to the conclusion that the phrase “term limits” needs to be a nonstarter. Federal office is one term, period. And a limited time for bureaucrats in their positions as well. No one should be in Federal office long enough to “retire” from it. […]

Christianity and Progressivism

In a discussion at Citizen Tom’s excellent blog, he laments the loss of Christianity (along with politics) as even a topic of popular discussion. In the middle of a long and thoughtful post, with which I largely agree, he notes: […]

Paul Ryan’s Budgets

Paul Ryan, Republican representative from Wisconsin and the 2012 Republican candidate for vice president, is considering a run for president in 2016. Perhaps I should be happier about this, but I have some problems with Congressman Ryan… […]

Obama the Competent

Some commenters have wondered: Since Obama has done so much damage, how can I call him incompetent? I’d written: “We have, it seems to me, an incompetent, inconstant, insensitive, insidious ingrate for a president — and we are left at this point feeling thankful for the incompetence, without which he’d be even worse.” But the question was fair. It seems a thought experiment may help: […]

What is Barack Obama?

Many people accuse President Obama if being a Muslim, even a radical Muslim. I do not agree. Obama is a radical of sorts, but not a “radical Muslim” in my opinion. First, he is technically a Muslim by dint of his education (for a few years) in Indonesia; though he was young, it is enough for them to lay claim upon him. But I do not think this is true in Obama’s own mind. He is a non-strategic amateuristic pragmatist, in that he is all to willing to lie for even the shallowest purposes of the moment, giving little thought to what new lies he might have to tell in an hour or a day to cover for this lie. It clearly applies to so much of his daily activity, and I believe it applies to his religion as well. […]

Amendment B: Ballet Protection

It’s been a while, with a few interruptions (some good and some not). Here’s an amendment that is controversial but where I am in complete agreement with Mark Levin. His language follows: […]

Amendment A: Aggregate Government Service

Term limits currently apply to the president: He or she cannot serve more than 2.5 terms. (The half term would arise in cases where the role of president was taken over because of vacancy mid-term.) Mark Levin’s proposal for this in The Liberty Amendments runs as follows: […]
