The IRS On Steroids


Obamacare depends on your friendly Internal Revenue Service to enforce the individual mandate to purchase health insurance.  It will be getting into our face every month to monitor that we all have the health insurance required by the federal government.  The feds will have access to our medical records.  And the IRS will be collecting the civil [...]

Christopher Buckley Sees the Light on Obama


Daily Beast columnist Christopher Buckley has clearly inherited his late, great father’s razor-sharp wit and gift for eloquence, but his political sensibilities fell considerably farther from the tree—so much so that he voted for Barack Obama, based on personal disappointment with John McCain, animosity towards Sarah Palin, and the certainty that Obama was too smart [...]
