I've read on several blogs that if my tears can cure cancer, I should take care of universal health care. Cute. The real fact is that neither I nor Obamacare (in its present form, the 1,000-plus-page H.R. 3200) can provide the remedy. In my column last week, I explained that dirty secret No. 1 in Obamacare is that the House bill would grant government the authority to come into homes and usurp parental rights over child care and development.

I have a few more secrets to share over these hot August political nights.Dirty secret No. 2 is that Obama is not the leader of Obamacare. And neither is Congress. The one who has been spearheading the initiative behind the scenes is one who goes under the misnomer "adviser" to the Obama administration, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a bioethicist and breast oncologist and brother of White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. And his bi…

What can YOU do?

I am really quick to point out what is wrong with our government today. But what do we do? How do we fix anything?

Well, I believe the first step is opening our mouths. Stop being afraid of offending someone. When was the last time a liberal worried about offending a conservative. Be respectful and polite but stand by your principles.

True liberals who know what they are doing cannot be reasoned with. These are not people who can be reasoned with and so do not waste time arguing. These are the weather underground types who want to see America brought down and converted to a socialist state and so are pleased to see the destruction of the constitution and are also proponents of a larger welfare state.

But America is not populated by a majority of such thinkers. We are only led to believe this. Our far left media would promote it as such and present scenarios that many Americans feel passionate about. But when presented with facts and nothing but the facts most of these same pas…

IT IS TIME.....or there will be blood.

I don't know about anyone else, but I have just about had it with those who are at the political head of this country!

When I was first able to vote, I voted for George Bush. Not "W", but his father. After watching Reagan for 8 years I was excited to carry on where he was leaving off. I have never before wavered in my support given to the republican party. I knew that deep conservative principles was where my loyalties should lie.

Where have those principle gone? Believe it or not, I have become wiser the older I have become. As Reagan said, Trust but Verify! I have been trusting "republicans" with MY government without really verifying what they stood for or where they stood on the issues.

Obviously McCain was not a conservative. And yet I voted for him. What was I thinking? I was selling my country down the river for a lesser of two evils. I know I am not alone.

Flashback: I have a very wise cousin. He advised me during "W's" re-ele…

Dirty Secret No. 1 in Obamacare

Health care reforms are turning into health care revolts. Americans are turning up the heat on congressmen in town hall meetings across the U.S. While watching these political hot August nights, I decided to research the reasons so many are opposed to Obamacare to separate the facts from the fantasy. What I discovered is that there are indeed dirty little secrets buried deep within the 1,000-plus page health care bill.

Dirty secret No. 1 in Obamacare is about the government's coming into homes and usurping parental rights over child care and development.It's outlined in sections 440 and 1904 of the House bill (Page 838), under the heading "home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children." The programs (provided via grants to states) would educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills. The bill says that the government agents, "well-trained and co…

Some Words of Wisdom

If you have never read the book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, you must read it now. Or if you have, re-read it. It is more telling now than ever. It is as if those who are to blame just set out to show us exactly how much like those in Rands book they are.

Just a few quotes from a worthy author:

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives.

Evil requires the sanction of the victim.

Government "help" to business is just as disastrous as government persecution... the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.

Individual righ…
