NOW CAN WE MOVE ON TO REALLY IMPORTANT ISSUES

Once again, the Supreme Court failed to exercise “judicial restraint” and opted to actively legislate from the bench by deciding that homosexuals have a “right” to marry in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. Five unelected lawyers decided to do away with our democratic process and power of our legislatures and redefine the word “marriage” […]

New Taxes? Is Anyone Really Surprised?

If there was anyone who actually believed President Obama when he said he wouldn’t raise taxes on families making less than $250,000, the Supreme Court has set the record straight. Whether you agree or not with the Supreme Court’s holding, failure to buy insurance under the Obamacare mandate will result in a tax, not a […]

THE SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD SHOULD GO BACK TO SCHOOL

One day in grammar school, the nun told us that we would have a test the following day.  Anyone who couldn’t recite a particular spelling rule had to write it 50 times.  Despite having studied all the spelling rules the night before, the next day I flubbed mine.  So, I went home and wrote the […]

What We Can Expect

The Supreme Court has started hearing oral arguments this week on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Of course I’m hoping that the whole thing will be thrown out on constitutional grounds, particularly because, although Constitutional Law was not my favorite course in law school,  I still can’t figure out how the federal government can force us […]

U.S. Supreme Court Rules CA Must Release Thousands of Prisoners

The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision affirmed a controversial prison reduction plan forced on the California prison system by a 3-judge panel.  Chief Justice John Roberts joined a separate dissent written by Justice Samuel Alito which questioned the wisdom of giving federal judges the authority to run state penal systems. Their dissent also faulted […]

WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH: THE FACE OF EVIL

I recently read a very interesting book entitled, “The Rite,” written by an Italian journalist who accompanied a modern-day exorcist, Fr. Gary Thomas, during his training in Rome. (I haven’t seen the movie.) In the book, one of the parishioners asks the priest not to discuss evil spirits and demonic possession during his sermon because […]

MAN UP, MR PRESIDENT!

  I did not vote for President Obama.  Some might call me a racist, but I voted against him based on the issues.  A 5-minute google search and his interview with Bill O’Reilly revealed to me that he was a far-left guy and told me everything I needed to know about him.  He said he […]

Good for Justice Alito!

Well, we won’t be seeing Supreme Court Justice Alito at the next State of the Union address – not after the President insulted the Supremes at the last one.  

MY MAIDEN AUNT WAS A LESBIAN?

This had to be one of the screwiest news items I’ve read in a very long time.  There’s a lot about this story I don’t get. Elena Kagan, Solicitor General and former Dean of Harvard Law School, has been nominated by President Obama to fill the seat on the U.S. Supreme Court previously occupied by […]
