September 28, 2009

There was an AP news reports yesterday declaring that Social Security will pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes the next two years.  The AP also reported that regulators shut down the 95th U.S. bank to fail this year as loan defaults rise in the worst financial climate in decades.  Meanwhile, the […]

More Unkept Promises…

September 10, 2009

Did anyone see the latest ideas from Congress on limits to healthcare? Yep. This makes good stuff available to those UNDER 25, but not over. The measure — offered by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont. — would impose new fees on some healthcare industry segments to help offset the estimated $880 billion in […]

February 15, 2009

There were three news reports from Friday that I found VERY interesting. They all revolve around the Stimulus package that many expect to rejuvenate the economy. All are from CNSNews. You can claim bias all you want to…but the reports should be disturbing to everyone… First, a Democrat says no one will have time to […]

February 5, 2008

Did you know it isn’t enough to talk about overcoming racism? Now days, at schools, you also have to support the anti-family agenda of the left. You may know Ken Hutcherson’s name from his pro football days or, more recently, his pro-family activism in defense of traditional marriage. But Hutcherson’s daughter was introducing her father […]

November 6, 2007

Rugrats and Power Rangers may really be bad TV for children. A recent study showed possible links between violent content and attention lapses. It links these problems to children as much under 3 who watch this type of content. And, the problems can show up as much as 5 years later. (…and ADD is a […]
