Why Congress is in the dump

There is a reason why 89% of the people disapprove of the job the U.S. Congress is doing.  What Congress is doing, mostly, is jockeying for political advantage.  The recent resurrection of the Armenian genocide declaration is a classic example. Why is it so important that Congress pass this resolution condemning an event that occurred in 1915 - at this particular time?

Top Ten Frivolous Lawsuits

We’ve all heard the one about the woman who spilled scalding coffee and successfully sued McDonald’s. But we’ve also heard reports of burglars suing homeowners after injuring themselves during a robbery. And don’t forget the stories of Winnebago owners winning lawsuits after they left the driver’s seat because the vehicle’s cruise control was activated. Most of us laugh off these stories as urban legends made to show the absurdity of frivolous lawsuits. You might be surprised, however, by how many of these are true.

ABC Tries To Credit Democrats for Rush’s $2 Million Ebay Letter!

imageIf this doesn’t take the cake, I don’t know what does? On an ABC News Blog called the Political Radar, ABC reports on Rush Limbaugh’s $2 million condemnation letter and throughout the piece continually links “Democrats” to the charity donation that Limbaugh and the ebay bidder for the letter are giving the money to.

After reading this ABC blog report, one gets the sneaking suspicion that ABC thinks that Harry Reid and the Democrats are the ones that should be hailed as the good guys responsible for raising this monumental sum for charity. It is clear that ABC did their level best to play down Limbaugh’s part in the story and play up the supposed positive contribution of Democrats.

Chicago Sneaks Free Newspaper Killing Law into Effect

Today, thanks to a law ushered in the back door right under everyone’s noses, it is illegal to distribute free newspapers. Were the Founders alive today, Richard Daley, King of Chicago, would prevent them from distributing their political papers to the public. No speech in King Daley’s city… not without HIS say-so, anyway.

Naomi Wolf Cries Fascism

One of my pet peeves with the Left is the tendency, almost by default, to liken the Bush Administration to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. It is a significant reason I could no longer bring myself to associate with the Left.

Question: Did the Resolution Condemning Turkey Create a Constitutional Crisis

Recently, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by US Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA), passed a resolution that recognized the killing of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks in 1915 as genocide. While the circumstances surrounding the slaughter are disputed, the killings did occur. The larger questions this action presents could very well be as disturbing as the killings themselves. What was there to gain by issuing this non-binding resolution at this moment in time? And, did the issuance of the non-binding resolution usurp the Executive Branch’s authority to establish foreign policy?

Evil

Man has long asked how a loving God could allow evil to exist in the world.  It’s an age-old philosophical question that can cause those who want faith to doubt and those who want to doubt to mock faith.  A Christian’s answer to this question is “free will,” a concept critics may regard as something reduced to a convenient cliche.  The truth is, though, that this is a most fascinating subject to inquisitive minds.
