New Study Shows Abstinence Education Works

February 2, 2010

The state-run Washington Post is now claiming that abstinence-only education works.  Kids actually have less sex when told about the truths of pregnancy and disease, even with contraception.  What I don’t see is why sane people can’t get behind something like this, and rally behind the simple truth that kids having less sex is a [...]

Democrats in Congress Want to Override Supreme Court

February 2, 2010

So I guess that according to liberals, Supreme Court decisions are sacrosanct only when they legislate liberal policies from the bench.  Yet when the court rules in favor of the Constitution as they ruled in Citizens United v.

The Pending Collapse of Social Security – Today

February 2, 2010

Back in 2005, with President George W. Bush at a high point having just won re-election, he pushed Social Security reform as his top policy initiative.  That initiative ultimately failed, and cost him much of the political capital that he had gained from winning in 2004.  Besides the obvious points of not selling the solution [...]

Don’t Underestimate Obama

February 2, 2010

Watching the performance of Obama and the Democrats this past year, it’s easy to get complacent and assume that 2010 and 2012 are wrapped up.  What we as conservatives fail to see is that Obama does still appeal to a segment of the population, even if they don’t like his policies.  Case in point:  on [...]
