Let us not forget about Andrew Tahmooressi

The Obama administration has been rocked by innumerable scandals, failures and displays of complete ineptness. However, one particular story has certainly not garnered the attention it certainly merits. As Mexican and other illegals pour over our southern border as if it did not exist, our brave soldier Andrew Tahmooressi rots in a Mexican prison awaiting trial from a corrupt and unpredictable legal system. Today is day 101, and most of our country has just about forgotten our comrade in arms...

How to Win the War on Terror

The “War on Terror” was coined by President Bush, denied by Obama and fought for by our brave soldiers. However, as the Middle East burns and the rise of increased radical Islam groups like ISIS take hold, it seems that we are slowly losing it. Historians will look back and put the blame on many people and reasons for the loss. However, as our gains in the Middle East seemingly become squandered, one must ask, “What are we doing wrong?” Many can blame poor strategy, a denial of the problem, ...

Obama Socialist Quotes

Here's a great list of Obama's socialist quotes. And he's our president? “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times.” “Generally, the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.” “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that.  Somebody else made that happen.” “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessar...

US Economy Shrinks

While the Middle East burns, Russian power grows and China flexes its muscles, Obama’s domestic policies prove just as disastrous domestically as it does abroad. Higher taxes, a failed Obamacare program, increasing national debt and an unfriendly business environment have made the inevitable occur. The gross domestic product fell by 2.9 percent this first quarter as reported by the Commerce Department. Though many in the government seem surprised by this number or even absurdly blame the weat...

Will We Cause our own Next Pandemic?

With deadly viruses, bacteria and fungi already prevalent and mutating throughout the United States and world, the potential for a possible outbreak like the influenza pandemic of 1917 is always present. Plus, when you realize that certain diseases such as the MERS virus in the Middle East and the Ebola virus in Africa are already causing havoc in those regions, one must wonder if any of these known or potentially unknown deadly diseases could take hold in this country. Worse yet, there is som...

Obama Remains Silent as Christian Persecution Rises

As the persecution of Christian heightens around the world, what is our president’s response? Many have been watching in horror as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) took control of Iraq’s second largest city, Mosul, and are now moving toward Kirkuk. Along the way, they are killing the innocent and causing Christian populations living in the region since the first century to flee their homes for their lives. Plus, we also watch the military gains won by our brave soldiers in Iraq slowl...

Unemployment Numbers are a Hoax

Did you ever consider why our unemployment numbers seem so low despite the fact that government subsidies are at an all-time high? With the marked increased usage of food stamps, Medicaid, WIC, section 8 and disability among others, how do any of these trends correlate with a thriving economy? First, the unemployment number represents only the percent of legal Americans who are ACTIVELY looking for work who can’t find a job. It does not represent the unemployed who simply can’t find an adequa...

Where VA Money is Going Instead of to Veterans

As many of our honored veterans languish on fake waiting lists or are denied needed medical care, one must ask if the VA is properly using its funding provided by taxpayer money. Just like any business, expenditures should be evaluated on a regular basis to ensure solvency of the company. Unfortunately, unlike private businesses, the government is not accountable for its taxpayer dollar spending and has little accountability. However, when our veterans are suffering as a result, I think that i...

Failure of Obamacare Evidenced by Overcrowded Emergency Rooms

As a physician, I can attest to the recent article I’ve read in the Courier Journal about more people using the emergency rooms due to Obamacare. Unfortunately, under this new law, the newly insured Americans were supposed to be utilizing their primary care physicians instead of the emergency room. However, that has turned out certainly not to be the case. With the number of visits to the ER soaring by the day, most ask why this rise is happening if more Americans are supposedly receiving cov...
