CHICAGO,—Attorneys for Jubilee Campaign’s Law of Life Project and Thomas More Society await decisions by federal and state courts on their motions for preliminary injunction to stop the State of Illinois and the Federal Government from imposing confiscatory fines and other legal sanctions on a Roman Catholic health management company for exercising their state and federal free exercise of religion rights not to be forced to pay for abortifacients, sterilization, contraception and the related counseling now being imposed upon non-exempt businesses by state and federal law.

The Year 2012… Farce, fiasco, fascism, and faith

Well, now that it’s clear that the Mayans are no better than Dick Morris at predicting the future, I’d like to offer some year end – if not world end – thoughts. As a principled conservative, I’m generally aggrieved at the state of the world, but as a Christian, I’m joyful even in sadness, for sadness comes from worldly equations, and joy from the promise of Eternal Life.

The 2013 Anxiety Meter

All through 2012 I kept telling myself that, if I could just wait it out until the elections, a majority of Americans would surely set things right by electing Mitt Romney, but we have since learned that he was a reluctant candidate who, if we are to believe his son—and I think we can—really didn’t want to get in the race, but thought the others in the primaries had little chance of winning.

‘Obama right on gun ban; There WILL be resistance,’ Says CCRKBA

BELLEVUE, WA – President Obama was absolutely correct when he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that “there will be resistance” to his extremist proposal to ban the most commonly-owned and popular rifles in America, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

Poland And Czech Republic Ban Germany’s Green Energy

Germany considers itself the environmental conscience of the world: with its nuclear phase-out and its green energy transition, the German government wanted to give the world a model to follow. Blinded by its own halo, however, Germany overlooked that others have to pay for this green image boost and are suffering as a result. Germany’s ‘eco-miracle’ simply used the power grids of neighbouring countries not only without asking for permission but also without paying for it. Now Poland and the Czech Republic have pulled the plug and are building a huge switch-off at their borders to block the uninvited import of green energy from Germany which is destabalising their grids and is thus risking blackouts.—Daniel Wetzel, Die Welt, 28 December 2012

Who is exempt from Obamacare?

Who has waivers from some of the provisions? That’s a question that should be asked and answered. However, getting to the truth isn’t an easy task. According to the Weekly Standard about half the special treatment is doled out to unions.

Are We Helping Poor Americans?

At the end of the year, many people take time to make charitable donations. But caring for those in need is a year-round responsibility—and when it comes to public policy, conservatives have an important opportunity to articulate an effective response to poverty and social breakdown in America.

Trust Your Instincts and Never Trust a Politician!

Doug Hagmann’s columns generate an interesting array of comments that span the spectrum, from belief to disbelief.  Not surprisingly, some believers appear to have their doubts.  All I can suggest is that people need to trust their instincts and never trust a politician.

Do Not Underestimate the Value of Culture as a Power of Change

Hope and Change, Hope and Change, Hope and Change… Millions of Americans were chanting totally mesmerized. Change at the speed of light is here and accelerating. Hope is fading away. How did we get here so fast? It did not happen overnight. We just failed to pay attention.

Hey, Libs, What about the Employer’s Body?

If a leftist expressed new-age spirituality and uttered the Zen idea that he was one with the Universe, I’d certainly believe him. What else could explain liberals’ seeming inability to know where their body ends and someone else’s begins?

The Values Economy

There are two types of things that we put money into; the things that we need and the things that we don’t. The former represent our physical needs and the latter our spiritual needs. Food for the body and food for the mind. We need to eat, but we don’t need to see a movie. We need a house to live in, but we don’t need a house of worship. We need a car to get to work, but we don’t need a painting on our wall once we get there.

The Perfect Pass, Self Destruction, then Recovery

What would it be like to be the highest paid athlete in the world, the toast of Boston, the winner of two Stanley Cups, the rich devil-may-care playboy? Then to find yourself broke, alcoholic, drug addicted and sleeping under bridges? In the space of 12 years this all happened to Derek “Turk” Sanderson.

Idiocy of television coverage about the “fiscal cliff”

Not only are we being subjected to the idiocy of television coverage about the “fiscal cliff”; Are you impressed the politicians are diligently working to strike a deal? They even stayed in Washington over the weekend.

Really? Are you impressed?

Procrastination and manipulation

It’s really quite aggravating to watch and listen to the reports on the deficit, budget, tax cuts and fiscal cliff.

The War’s Over, Piers Morgan and the Americans Won

Supposedly sulking, “deport myself”-promising Piers Morgan is CNN’s main hope of boosting the lowest television viewership among the cable networks.  When CNN dives lower than MSNBC, losing out to the likes of Chris Matthews, they’ve got big problems.

Morgan is having a field day at least figuratively speaking,  shooting up Americans ready to stand strong for their constitutional protected gun rights.  Google it, Piers.  It’s called the Second Amendment.

But is Piers Morgan all that passionately against gun owners, or is he spinning the cotton candy to get host network CNN nudged back up in the ratings?
