Obamacare Gets Even Sicker


Obamacare was on life support after the election of Senator Scott Brown but President Obama is trying to resuscitate it.   After a couple of weeks of pretending to make jobs his number one priority for 2010, Obama is pushing hard again on his favorite big government program against the wishes of the majority of the American [...]

Will the Fringe Hijack the Tea Parties?


When I was a junior communist living in 1960’s Canada, one of the few constants in my life was the unwelcome presence of Maoists at pretty much any gathering I attended.
