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…

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.

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…

Why People Are Being Unfair to Donald Verrilli

Everyone (including me) is cracking on Donald Verrilli, Obama’s Solicitor General. He figuratively died on the biggest legal stage in the world today. Here’s a sample of the left’s reaction to Verrilli’s performance: Mother Jones: Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr. should be grateful to the Supreme Court for refusing to allow cameras in the…

Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s Crappy Argument In Support of ObamaCare

I’m often amazed at the weakness of arguments before the Supreme Court. Today, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, attempting to help out the Obama Administration’s fumbling solicitor-general, made the weakest argument I’ve ever heard. First, Ginsberg’s statement: Mr. Verrilli, I thought that your main point is that, unlike food or any other   market, when you made the…

Why We Have Hearings

Elena Kagan reminds me of Norm Peterson’s (Cheers) meltdown in front the brewery president just before he landed his dream job as a beer taster. Poor Elena can’t remember the simplest things—like her own handwriting.  Today, Democrat Arlen Specter warned that he may have to vote “no.”  She might not be the infanticidal maniac some…

The Story of the Tenth Amendment

**Note: Please read the entire store by clicking on the title or the Continue Reading link below. ** Those of us whose conservative conversions occured in the late 1970s and early 1980s, I think, are particularly fascinated by the 10th Amendment to the Constitution. We also mourn over its senseless destruction by Congress, courts, and…
