Dr. Ben Carson’s alternative to Obamacare – Part Five

July 29, 2014
Ben Carson

In the usual back and forth between the Democrats who want socialized medicine and the rest of the world who don’t, the Saul Alinsky-ites of the left often rail about the lack of an alternative from the Republicans. Besides the fact that this is total bovine fecal matter—Bobby Jindal’s proposal for example—there have been many alternatives offered to improve our previous system without nuking it and turning it into a system like the one that brought you the V.A. scandal. As the new chairman of the Save Our Healthcare Project (a part of the American Legacy PAC), Dr. Carson is…

Ethanol mandates go from bad to worse

July 28, 2014

President Obama, and his administration, has enacted so many foolish and cost-increasing energy policies, it is easy to think that they are his purview alone. But in 2007, Republicans were just as guilty. Seeds were planted and a garden of bad legislation took root in a totally different energy environment. At the time, the growth seemed like something worthy of cultivation. However, what sprouted up more closely resembles a weed that needs to be yanked out. Last week, I wrote about Australia’s carbon tax that was pulled on July 17. Its seeds were also planted in 2007, though not germinated…

As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Earlier this week, a three-judge panel ruled that the language contained in Obamacare’s previously unread 2000+ pages specifically spells out an inconvenient truth: federally funded subsidies are illegal for anyone purchasing health insurance policies from the federally run exchanges (ie, “”) in 36 states. Conservatives and constitutionalists were quick to cheer, predicting that the legal ruling might represent a long-awaited…

Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto – The cure for global warming

July 24, 2014

Long considered the bible of socialist thought for progressives, Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto has been an essential tool—kind of like a hammer and sickle—for politicians, union members, and tenured college professors to spread the idea that Marx’s work in the area of economics laid the basis for understanding labor and its relation to capital. In the first two sections of his book, Marx describes the plight of the working class and how Communism holds the answer to the inequities suffered by the Proletarians (poor working-class) at the hands of the Bourgeois (the wealthy). In outlining his goals for how communism would accomplish this goal,…

Australia shoots down carbon tax scheme

July 21, 2014

Thursday, July 17 was a big news day. The world was shocked to learn that a Russian-made missile shot down a Malaysian Airlines jet with 298 on board as it flew over Ukraine en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam. Though flight 17 eclipsed the news cycle, there was another thing shot down on July 17. Almost a year ago, Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott won a landslide election with a nearly single-issue campaign: repeal the carbon tax. On July 17, he made good on that promise, as the Australian Senate voted, 39 to 32, to abolish the “world’s biggest carbon…
