As you probably know, ObamaCare mandates are going to hit employers with 50 or more employees. A number of businesses have gotten exemptions. Many, maybe even all, of them are most likely political in nature. It’s the Santa Clause Effect: I’ll do you a favor if you do one for
The Obama administration is arguing that Tyndale House Publishers, a Christian publisher of Bibles and ministry material, is not religious enough to qualify for an exemption to the contraception mandate — which includes drugs many Christian groups say are abortifacients. The First Amendment does not make a distinction between for-profit
Dr. Barbara Bellar is running for the District 18 state senate seat in Illinois. Dr. Bellar is “not your typical person. Starting out as a nun, she went on to become a Major in the Army, a doctor, a lawyer, and a small business entrepreneur. Her life is encompassed by
Parodies and caricatures of political campaigns have a long history. They can be mean spirited, as Liberals are noted for, or they can be just funny. “Mr. Scam Man” is funny. Two guys sitting around having fun with the song “Mr. Sand Man” and turning it into a political statement
A very wise businessman friend of mine explained how he went about deciding whether he would hire someone for his business. “Ask the prospective client for three references. You know that you’re going to show you only the good ones. When he shows you the references, then ask for the
I don’t like whiners. I don’t like to hear someone say in a whiney voice, “I can’t do it” or “It’s too hard.” This is what I hear from Sen. Mitch McConnell as he explains why it’s going to be difficult to overturn ObamaCare. While McConnell says he’ll do whatever
By Kate Kicks, Townhall.com The following is excerpted from an article written by Kate Hicks at Townhall.com: Over, and over, and over, President Obama assured us that this was not a tax. He was not raising taxes on the middle class (that’s what the Republicans were doing, remember?). Nope, .
If Congress does not repeal ObamaCare, America will never be the same. While the court’s healthcare decision was unconstitutional, illogical, and borderline insane, it wasn’t surprising or unexpected given past decisions. Like John Roberts who voted with the four liberal members of the court to uphold the individual mandate, it
Liberals have a love/hate relationship with the Constitution. They love the Constitution when they can find some out-of-context word or phrase and add concepts that aren’t found in it in order to give constitutional credence to their unconstitutional laws. Liberals found the right to abortion in the “penumbra” of the
The cost of government programs is always underestimated. This is on purpose. If the president and congress actually reported what a program will really cost, the legislation would never pass. There isn’t a single government program where the cost projections have been accurate. Social Security and Medicare are two perfect
54% of Catholics voted for Obama in 2008. Now the Catholic Bishops are screaming bloody murder because of contraception mandates. Maybe it’s only the 46% that didn’t vote for him who are doing the screaming. What about the Catholic bishops? They got behind Obamacare like they got behind every so-called
When someone else pays for something we get to keep, we usually don’t care about the price, especially if our benefactor keeps paying for it. People on food stamps generally are not cost conscious because they know that each month, they’ll get a new batch of food stamps. There was
There’s saber rattling in the Middle East; Obama has shut down a job-creating pipeline that would make us less dependent on foreign sources of oil from less than friendly nations; unemployment is still high; there is no budget; spending is out of control; our elected representatives support bills they don’t
President Obama is trying desperately to sell his healthcare program to the nation. He tried the white coat treatment in 2009 by staging a photo op at the White House Rose Garden with 150 doctors in tow from the 50 states. How would the people know that these men and
Harry Reid has described opponents of the controversial government healthcare bill as equivalent to those who opposed an immediate end to slavery. “You think you’ve heard these same excuses before? You’re right,” Reid said. “In this country there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s
The Constitution of the United States was written on four sheets of parchment. If you count the Preamble and all 27 Amendments (there were originally only ten), it comes out to 20 typed pages. If you don’t count the signatures and amendments, you’ll have a document of 11 typed pages.
