Trump Is the Only Viable Pro-Life Choice

Some pro-life activists like Erick Erickson are plotting ways to sabotage Donald Trump’s candidacy for president. They probably haven’t stopped to think. If they succeed in defeating Trump, they will be culpable in many, many abortions. That’s a lot of guilt for a guy like Erickson to carry around, isn’t it? Chances are Congress won’t …

Trump’s Immigration Fans Need to Read Wong Kim Ark

It’s sad that Donald Trump has inspired so many good conservatives to promote fantasies about the 14th Amendment. The Supreme Court addressed the issue of birthright citizenship directly, and Mark Levin and Laura Ingram know it. They are Constitutional lawyers. Both Levin and Ingraham are familiar with United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898) which established, …

How I Would Vote on Gay Marriage Cases

I’m not a lawyer. And I’m not particularly smart. But that doesn’t stop me from writing my opinion. Rather, I’m a libertarian-ish conservative. I like a small central government that protects us from evil people in other countries and delivers mail. And prosecutes people who do great harm across state lines. The Supreme Court has …

Let Depression Be Your Guide

Yesterday, I gave you a reason to celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision.  But I never said to let go of your anger or depression. That’s because we need creativity, focus, and action, and you get those through emotional distress. In his new best-selling book, Jonah Lehrer discusses the link between depression and creativity: This helps …

Here’s What’s Great About the Supreme Court’s Obamacare Decision

In the Ronald Reagan movie Kings Row, Reagan plays Drake McHugh, whose legs are sawn off by a sadistic, class-conscious doctor. Everyone remembers the line “Where’s the rest of me?” No remembers what happens after that. I’ll fill you in. McHugh’s best friend, a psychiatrist, decides to tell McHugh (Reagan) the truth: his legs were …

Obamacare Ruling Comes Down This Week, and We’re Having a Tea Party

Pack clothes, flags, and signs for an Obamacare Tea Party at Forest Park on Art Hill this week.  The rally will begin at 7:00 PM on the day the Supreme Court rules. We don’t know the day, but we do know the time: 7:00 pm in Forest Park on Art Hill (map below). The most …

McCaskillPAC

What I find so funny about Claire McCaskill’s war on super pacs is that her husband is a super PAC. For the record, I have formally endorsed Senator McCaskill in her race to return to private life. Zimmerman Update Having declared George Zimmerman guilty of first degree, racially motivated murder, the MSM are now investigating …

The Supreme Court Votes on Obamacare Today

We won’t know the result until late June, most likely.  And the results of today’s vote could change by then. Still, it’s sort of weird that after three years of public, wildly emotional and stupifyingly complex arguments, the fate of the republic comes down to a short meeting in Washington involving nine people in a …

It’s Impossible to Exaggerate the Historical Importance of the Supreme Court’s ObamaCare Decision

When the Supreme Court releases its opinion on the ObamaCare case, America will change fundamentally. This is the most important case to the future of the republic since the Great Depression or the Civil War.  If the court upholds ObamaCare, it will end the principle of government limited by a written Constitution.  Anthony Kennedy and …

The Supreme Court Will Also Decide the Election

When the Supreme Court rules on ObamaCare, it will define Barack Obama as either a winner or loser. James Carville says overturning ObamaCare would be the best thing that could happen to Democrats. I think he’s wrong. ObamaCare is the centerpiece of Obama’s term in office. He put all of America’s business on hold for …
