CNN, MSNBC Attack Mormons, Romney

CNN has been having repeated discussions about Romney, his religion and the 2012 race. At MSNBC, Lawrence O'Donnell had the same conversation. Is the mainstream press starting a coordinated attack on Romney by attempting to drum up suspicion of Mormons, inciting voters and hoping it will be a self-fulfilling prophesy? [more…]

The Obama/Romney Dog Wars

The Left has attacked Mitt Romney for the story about taking his dog on vacation by putting the dog’s crate on top of the family car. They are painting a picture of a person who doesn’t care about man’s best friend. The Right has countered by bringing up President Obama’s admission that he ate dog meat as a child in Indonesia while ignoring a legitimate and far larger issue regarding animals and the president. But then again, the Right are the worst fighters on the planet. Our leaders (I hate to call them leaders when they aren’t qualified to lead anything) seem to think that a winning argument is to give in to the Left on everything in return for hoping that the Left will like them.

Obamacare Would Have Missed Warren Buffett's Cancer

Just imagine Warren Buffett, one of the great investors and philanthropists of our time, could have died unexpectedly from an easily treatable disease. Under the government’s watch, that would have been perfectly acceptable. Several months ago, President Obama’s Preventative Services Task Force issued a recommendation that men no longer need to receive the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test as a way to detect prostate cancer. The Task Force argued that once prostate cancer is detected, it can lead to more tests and treatments which can be very costly and unnecessary. [more...]

The Fairness Fallacy behind the Buffett Rule

The President of the United States has decided to take his traveling circus of illusion on the road to pitch his version of a Brave Fair World and the magic of his Buffet Tax that will make this all possible. Every millionaire would be subject to the new rule and according to all the king's horses and all the king's men, "it will help us close our deficit." When the rule was first floated President Obama stated the tax "could raise enough money" so that we "stabilize our debt and deficits for the next decade." And he added, "This is not politics; this is math." Now, I wasn't particularly a very good mathematics student, but I was most certainly not this bad. [more...]

Obama Energy Secretary Gives Himself an "A-Minus"

The day that President Obama and Energy Secretary Steven Chu took over our country, the price of gasoline was $1.84 a gallon on national average. Today the nationwide average for a gallon of gasoline is $3.92. So when Energy Secretary Chu was asked about his personal performance on controlling the cost of gasoline he gave himself better than an “A-minus.” If this were the private sector, this guy would be fired. However, he seems to think he’s doing his job just fine. [more...]
