The Tax that is Obamacare

Written by Robert Jackson Smith on Tuesday, 03 December 2013. Posted in Economy, Health, U.S., Business

Progressives believe that more government, more regulation, and more taxation is the answer to every problem. This is the rationale behind Obamacare. The outcome will be, as it always is with socialism, a disaster.

The Tax that is Obamacare

On June 28, 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Obamacare as a tax. As with most taxes, money is taken from the more productive people and given to the less productive people. This does two things:

Test Drive: 2014 Kia Soul

Compared to its competition, Kia is serious about its compact utility car, the Soul. With updates coming quickly, the little car remains fresh.

Test Drive: 2014 Kia Soul

Kia just won’t let up. Every few months, it seems, they either bring out a new one – or a better version of an already good one.

Did George Washington Predict America’s Fall?

Written by J. Matt Barber on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

We are in danger. As our national virtue melts away, it strains credulity to deny that we are entering, as Washington warned, a dark era of American despotism.

Did George Washington Predict America’s Fall?

It’s that bustling time between Thanksgiving and Christmas (Christ’s Mass), our nationally recognized and congressionally “established” birthday celebration for Jesus, the sovereign Lord of all mankind. Now is a valuable opportunity to reflect upon our nation’s past, present and future (our true past, not the historically revised version propagated by secular-”progressives”).

Violence is Very Human

Written by Alan Caruba on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Ever earnest progressives like to believe in mankind's essential goodness. Realists and Christians understand the fallen nature of man, and that as a consequence, violence is endemic.

Violence is Very Human

The “knockout game” is in the news these days along with much discussion of bullying. Football is a game of violence with rules in which players frequently sustain injuries. Terrorism has been adopted to advance the Islamic goal of global domination. And the administration just announced an agreement with Iran in a vain effort to slow their intention to join the nuclear club of nations with the capacity to kill thousands, if not millions.

Winter is Coming – Grasshoppers Fiddle While the Nation Burns

Written by Luke Hamilton on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Luke Hamilton

Winter is coming. The phrase was made popular with the success of the Game of Thrones series, but its resonance is elemental.

Winter is Coming – Grasshoppers Fiddle While the Nation Burns

Even in the height of summer, when a couple inches of snow sound like a refreshing break from the heat, contemplating the approach of winter triggers the impulse to prepare; to stock up. As any Midwesterner can attest, the thought of being caught, unprepared and lacking, in the dead of winter is enough to turn just about anyone into a prepper.

Mike Valentine Responds

Written by Eric Peters on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Can radar detectors continue to operate within an environment increasingly cluttered with "junk" signals? One manufacturer responds to Eric Peters' inquiry.

Mike Valentine Responds

About a week ago, I did an article (here) about my V1 radar detector being triggered not by police radar but by the radar (and laser) signals emanating from many new cars – specifically, cars equipped with lane departure and blind spot warning systems. I asked Mike Valentine, who runs the company and designed the V1, to comment on the issue. He most graciously did so, at length – and answered some questions I’d never even thought to ask. It turns out I was not imagining things, the problem is real. And it’s more than just the latest gadgetry being installed in new cars. Not surprisingly, there’s a government aspect to this mess, too.

The Homeless Pastor That Corrupted Hadleyburg

Written by John Kirkwood on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, John Kirkwood

The "church" has fed, has clothed, has ministered and has raised more orphans, widows and homeless individuals than any organization in the history of the world. But why let the facts get in the way of a cheap shot to fuel self-righteous haters?

The Homeless Pastor That Corrupted Hadleyburg

When it comes to “the internet hoax,” my naiveté borders on oafish gullibility. I still want it to be true that Mr. Rogers was a Special Forces sniper in Vietnam who only wore sweaters to hide his military tattoos. True story or not, I’d still buy the action figure with the sweater, the sneakers and the Barrett .50 caliber.

Crimes Against Women

Written by Vicki H. Moss on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Vicki H. Moss

It is a common misconception that police prevent crime. Rather, they investigate crimes after the fact. Better, for peace of mind, to rely on God's providence and be prepared to use adequate caution and to defend yourself.

Crimes Against Women

The 9th Annual Conference on Crimes Against Women—a worldwide epidemic—will be held in Dallas, Texas March 31 - April 2, 2014. For any who might not understand the significance of the conference, here are some of the statistics. (1)

Über Alec, Barking-Mad Bashir & The Death-Defying Libertarians

Reality is a tough place to be. No wonder it's ignored by progressives and others who believe in theory over fact.

In 2007, this column backed actor Alec Baldwin following the "tirade" he unleashed on Ireland, his then 11-year-old daughter.

Caught In the Conservative Trap?

Written by Michael Anthony Peroutka Esq. on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Michael Peroutka

"Liberals" and "conservatives" are increasingly wedded to their ideologies. But ideologies are always fluid and changing. For a republic to endure, and for justice to be maintained, we need a fixed standard. Ours is the Constitution.

Caught In the Conservative Trap?

Are You a Conservative? Do you consider yourself a liberal?

What Republicans Won’t Ever Say About Obamacare

Written by Eric Peters on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

If it is accepted that one man may legally, via the ballot box, take from another, may enslave him (to any degree) in order to improve his own condition, with violence or its threat as his cudgel – then the death warrant of civilization has been signed.

What Republicans Won’t Ever Say About Obamacare

I keep getting forwarded e-mails from “conservative Republicans” moaning about Obamacare. Of course, none challenge the ethical idea behind it – this notion that people have a right to medical care and it is the obligation of others to provide it, at gunpoint if need be (the latter ugliness never mentioned, even in passing).

Test Drive: 2013 (Yeah, I Know) Scion xB

Written by Eric Peters on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Automotive, Business

If you can swing a deal on an xB – which you probably can, given Scion’s straits – then it’s definitely worth considering the xB. It’s by no means a bad vehicle – it’s just that better ones are now available.

Test Drive: 2013 (Yeah, I Know) Scion xB

This will probably be my last write-up of a 2013 model car. Hell, it ought to be – we’re only four weeks away from 2014.

The Macy's Parade and Obamacare

Written by Alan Caruba on Sunday, 01 December 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Obamacare is a government health clinic and, if you do not pay a fine or do not pay the many taxes hidden within it, you will not be allowed to get in line. You will be told to go home and die.

The Macy's Parade and Obamacare

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade is an extraordinary logistical achievement when you consider how many bands are involved, how long it must take to make the remarkable floats and, of course, the famed balloons. I marveled, too, at the remarkable timing of the parade in which each unit occupied a specific amount of time on camera, either as a band executing a choreography or just marching by.

Schadenfreude

Written by Alan Caruba on Thursday, 28 November 2013. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Alan Caruba: "I must confess I am luxuriating in the knowledge of Obama’s present misery. I am enjoying it as someone who predicted he would fail—and fail spectacularly—and yet I know, despite his present unhappiness, he has no idea why it is happening."

Schadenfreude

On Thanksgiving 2013, it may seem that the nation has little to be thankful for, but if you pull back from the headlines and other news, it is clear that Obama’s presidency is seriously damaged and will remain so until and after he is gone. That’s worth celebrating.
