Supremes Decide Obama Is a Lying Tax-Hiker

Today Sarah Palin said it well: “Obama Lies, Freedom Dies.” The U. S. Supreme Court Justices just proved that Obama is (as Gary Bauer has stated) “a lying tax-hiker.” Obama knew the 2,700 page ObamaCare “monster” would never pass on its own merit; therefore, he repeatedly lied to us and said it was not a tax.

Today the Supremes said it is a tax – actually a $500 Billion tax over the next ten years. If ObamaCare is allowed to go forward, it would be the largest tax increase in the history of the whole world.

If Obama were to get re-elected in November, the American people would be forced to purchase private health insurance policies (i.e., a tax) the provisions of which would be controlled by the federal government; and Obama’s legion of IRS agents would be hired to enforce the mandate.


Nerobama Fiddled For Five Days While Colorado Burned

Do you remember how the Democrat/Media Complex eviscerated George W. Bush for allegedly failing to take a more active role in dealing with the Hurricane Katrina disaster? never mind that government at the state and local levels — as well as at the federal — should have acted in a more prompt and competent manner to ease the suffering of the storm’s victims, especially in the New Orleans area, the left and its captive media stenographers put all the blame at the feet of then-President Bush.

Contrast that situation with the current one in Colorado. Wildfires of “epic proportions” in the Waldo Canyon area of Colorado Springs have forced 32,000 residents from their homes as 15,324 acres are ablaze with only 5 percent containment. Even more alarming is the fact that the size of the area being incinerated doubled overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday.

Republican And Democrat Congressmen Profit From Insider Trading

As much as I am all for free markets, where every individual has the right to earn as much is he or she possibly can for the goods and services that they provide, I must say that when I read stories like this one in the Houston Chronicle it makes me more than a little angry.

Rep. Michael McCaul is listed as the second most wealthy member of the House. While exact numbers are not known, representatives disclose their finances in ranges, McCaul, an Austin Republican whose district extends into Harris County, is said to have a net worth of between $258,618,051 to $502,205,003.

McCaul’s assets are made up of investments in top lobbying companies like General Electric, Bank of America and Proctor and Gamble, as well as a large number of other companies.

I do not care what you are, Republican or Democrat, right is right and wrong is wrong.


Fortnight for Freedom and Sound Logic

The Washington Post opinion piece “‘Fortnight for Freedom’ distorts true religious liberty” by Laura W. Murphy, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office, distorts matters when it compares the Roman Catholic Church’s stance on its agencies not providing adoption services to gay couples with segregationist practices in the past. I am not a Roman Catholic, but a Protestant. Still, there is something at stake for all of us, when sound logic is missing from arguments on ethical matters of national import.

Before proceeding to analyze this portion of Murphy’s argument, it is important to answer a few questions for my readers. First, what is the Fortnight for Freedom? The Fortnight for Freedom is championed by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. It is a fourteen day vigil (June 21st to July 4th) that includes the following activities and aims: “this special period of prayer, study,


Tax Exempt Gospel

A tax exempt gospel does not mean we are offering the gospel free of charge.

I have heard Christians speak about the possibility of churches losing their tax exempt status if they do not comply with this or that social policy put in place by the U. S. federal government. I spoke recently about this concern with several friends who are Christian leaders. Their responses gave me much to ponder.

One pastor friend said, “American society has become increasingly vigilant regarding the separation of church and sate. How much longer can the faith community expect to receive special tax treatment?” He and fellow leaders at his mega church have pondered that they might lose their buildings and have to become a network of house churches if they lose their tax exempt status, since they could not afford to pay the taxes on their buildings.
