Passive Canadians are losing their Freedom

When you see the type of intrusion and attack on Canadian rights and freedoms by our own government that we are experiencing daily, I can’t help but wonder if our military is fighting in vain.  The young men and women that have been carried down the Highway of Heroes the past few years have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our Rights and Freedoms.

The Swine Flu Democrats (Gitmo Edition)

Last week, President Obama declared a national emergency because of the H1N1 virus. What had been a matter of concern, was elevated, in the minds of many, to something that is cause for panic. Citizens across the country have spent hours trying to schedule an appointment for a vaccination. Others have waited in long lines in order to get a shot.

Every Day is Groundhog Day in the Middle East

In the movie, “Groundhog Day”, the main character wakes up day after day, trapped in the same events, desperately looking for a way out of that living nightmare. It’s a very good metaphor for the Middle East.

Are You Sustainable?

Sustainable Development is a framework of thought to “save our planet” by harmonizing eco-systems with industry and population. In its most modern iteration (inasmuch it has been around a long time), it is the outcome of the Earth Summit, and is organized around “climate change”, man’s impact on environmental resources and the organic biosphere we live within.

How Should Christians React?

Not long ago as a radio talk host I had no trouble damning anything and everything that served to undermine the conservative foundation of America.  When I became a Christian, the struggle between out and out inflammatory and incendiary speech and a more tempered approach was an ongoing one.

Healthcare High Stakes Poker: Who’s Going To Deal?

Once upon a time,  I endured an 11-year career in healthcare,  working for and with the biggest names in the industry.  When I first entered the healthcare scene,  health insurance for my entire family cost a little over $70 per month,  and health insurers were dropping like flies to Chapter 11 amidst the ‘rising cost of healthcare.’  Today, that same coverage costs over $500 per month and now American families are struggling to keep the lights on.  What happened?  Insurers became better poker players,  and the rest of us are trying to learn the tells, as they say in the world of poker.

Enjoy Sharia Law on Broadway

The Obama Administration is finally ready to begin the Big Push. No, not the one to stop the Taliban… but to pass a gargantuan health care nationalization plan that the majority of the American people are opposed to and that no one besides China can actually pay for.

Nuclear Option? Boxer Considering ‘Toxic’ Maneuver

Excerpts:

“Democrats could also break with a long-standing EPW Committee precedent that requires two minority members to be in attendance for a markup to even begin. According to the committee rules, Boxer appears to have an exception available that would pave the way for votes on both amendments and the overall bill so long as a majority of the committee’s members are present.”

Objective Look at Stimulus Cost Called “Calculator Abuse”

As the Obama administration works feverishly to convince American taxpayers that enough jobs have been created or saved to justify the trillion-dollar pork out, euphemistically known as the “stimulus” bill, parsing of words has become damn near an art form at the White House.

Pretending to Speak for an Entire Culture

One of the things that brings me to the boiling point is when I hear elected officials tell me what “Americans want” or what “Americans think.” To believe that today’s federally elected politicians understand – or care – what their constituents want, never mind Americans on the whole, after they belittled town hall attendees and ignored the citizenry’s opposition to government-run healthcare is to exist in fantasyland.
