George Will on the Perils of Our Entitlement Culture

October 29, 2012

Occasionally, staunch Republican establishment-types like George Will get it right.  In his latest OpEd, Will makes the case that our entitlement culture is out of control because it is essentially “mugging” our descendants to pay for the debts we compile now.  In fact, he blames both parties, particularly those Republican administrations after the Great Society [...]

Judge “Severs” Obama Care’s Head

February 2, 2011

It’s all tied up at two-a-piece:  two judges uphold Obama Care, two judges strike it down.  The House passed repeal a few weeks ago, while the Senate is poised to take up the debate, perhaps even today, emboldened by Judge Roger Vinson’s ruling on Monday.  If you haven’t had a chance to peruse Vinson’s ruling [...]

She Has No Need for “Poverty Czar”

April 5, 2008

She Who Must Not Be Named and her “husband” Bill clocked in a cool $109 million since Bill left office.  Not bad for the champion of the working class and poor now that John Edwards has left he race!  This information, predictably document-dumped on a Friday afternoon so no one will notice, comes on the [...]
