Measles Outbreak Spreading 121 People Impacted

The Measles outbreak, blamed alternately on illegal immigrants or parents that refuse to administer vaccines, continues to spread.  The WaPo has more… Measles cases: Jan. 1 to Feb. 6, 2015. There are 121 cases reported in Washington, DC and 17 states (California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Texas, Washington, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware). (CDC) The measles outbreak spread to three more states and Washington D.C. last week, affecting 19 additional people, according to an update posted Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The highly contagious disease is now in […]

Federal Appeals Court Rules That ObamaCare Subsidies Only Apply to State Exchanges, Obama Administration Promises to Ignore the Decision

It always struck me as funny that when a court ruled for something liberal, like killing babies, or the First Amendment doesn’t mean what it says it means, it’s the gospel truth, etched in granite, and can never again be questioned.  However, if  a ruling goes against them, that’s a different story indeed.  Then, it’s terrible, awful, and require laws to be passed to bypass the court.  Or, they might just ignore it anyway.  The latest example of this comes from the ObamaCare front, where the administration’s efforts to bypass states that did not set up exchanges (or did, and […]

Will our nation change its name and do away with states some day?

Our nation, as constitutionally formed, is The Republic of the United State of America. In theory, a republic is where the supreme power is vested in the citizens who elect people to represent them. Do you feel that we are living in a republic? Do our elected officials really represent their electorate? And, what about the words: United States? Are we, a constitutional union of states, where all power rest with the states except for the enumerated powers constitutionally assigned to the federal government? Our nation may have started out as The Republic of The United States of America but […]

LIst of Arms Companies Refusing to Sell to Gun Grabber States now at 120

Apparently, the effort that began with just a few companies has grown considerably, the list of companies that refuse to sell arm to law enforcement in states that have restrictive gun laws has grown to 120.  Weasel Zippers has more… Via CNS: On February 22, “Right Views” reported that a growing number firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them. In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the “Firearms Equality Movement,” has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118. The Police […]

Liberal Education Creates Dumb People

It wouldn’t come as a surprise that people that go to universities tend to be liberal.  And, considering that they are liberal, they must live in economic la-la-land. And, it is true, as proven by Bookworm… One of the things that made the rounds on my Facebook was a boastful poster saying that those states with the highest number of college-educated people all went for Obama.  The implication is that these smart Blue State people, unlike the ill-educated yahoos in Red States, are the ones who have the brains and ability to understand how Obamanomics will serve America. What the genius […]

John Roberts: Missing the Mark or Right on Target?

When I first heard that Obamacare along with the individual mandate was found to be constitutional I was shocked.  When I learned that one of our own, Justice John Roberts crossed over to the dark side in a 5-4 ruling I was appalled.  The end of liberty was at hand.  The great experiment had finally unraveled and the republic our founders gave us we could not keep.  I couldn’t believe Justice Roberts ruled that the individual mandate was constitutional because he interpreted that the penalty imposed was actually a tax and within the constitutional authority of the congress to levy […]

Where the Battle is Won

John and I have, for some time, promoted the idea of focusing more on the politics within the local and state governments than the corrupt and inept national government.  We truly believe that the answer to our current problems doesn’t start at a national reformation, but at a local one.  Simply put, if we bring the power back to the states the national government will fall in line.  Allow me to provide some evidence to support what we’ve promoted to be effective and hopeful. First, it is abundantly clear that national political victories are, at best, a small source of […]
