Redefining obesity as a disease

on July 8, 2013, 6:29 AM / in Opinion

Aside from the important employment law implications as explained by Jon Hyman last week, the American Medical Association’s decision to reclassify obesity as a disease has implications for Medicaid and private reimbursement of therapy (“now coverage policy must catch up to that consensus,” exulted an officer of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery) and more pervasively for nanny-state initiatives: […]

Equality: American Idol

on July 7, 2013, 7:49 AM / in History, National News, News, Opinion

“They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Ben Franklin is much quoted in today’s debate on the trade-off between freedom and security, as we learn about the National Security Agency’s easy access to our phone records and emails. Yet we Americans have often sacrificed liberty for safety. In World […]

BLACKMAIL? NSA, OBAMA, ROBERTS & CONGRESS – HOW DEEP DOES IT GO?

on July 7, 2013, 7:35 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Devvy asks the question – “How Deep Does It Go?”  It goes to the very pits of Hell.  That is the Source and the energy base.  All of what is going on is bottom lines at the Battle between Good (God) and Evil (Satan).  All the players are soldiers on one side or the other – even if they don’t […]

‘We Don’t Live in That World Anymore’

on July 5, 2013, 7:48 AM / in Opinion

By Jonah Goldberg (Mind you this is a slightly to the left leaning editorial) Harry Anderson, a magician and comic (made famous by his stint as the judge on the old sitcom “Night Court”), used to have a routine where he’d promise to juggle George Washington’s ax. I’m quoting from memory here, but he’d say something like: “I have here George […]

By Dave Hodges How many of you believe that this country is plunging head first into a state of revolution? How many of you believe that a plannedcurrency collapse coupled with the implementation of a brutal martial law and gun confiscation will be the trigger events which will incite the coming revolution? Many of us in the alternative media believe that this is […]

I Present to you: The New “HYBRID” Republican

on July 2, 2013, 7:19 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

by Susan Horton The power of Power is stronger than gravity. Washington’s power is no  exception. It seems to entangle even the purest of heart turning its good  intentions into an Institute of Politics. Recently I learned that Silicon Valley  spent millions lobbying for immigration reform. Looking at the 68-32 Senate vote  it just may have been the safest, sure […]

ROSS: Tyranny

ROSS: Tyranny

on July 2, 2013, 7:07 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

  Tyranny is defined as many things. Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines it as oppressive power, while dictionary.com says it is arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power. Whatever definition you choose to use, I believe that we do, in fact, live in a nation where our rulers are exercising arbitrary and unrestrained power, and that we are being oppressed. It was […]

Why the Reagan Democrats Departed

Why the Reagan Democrats Departed

on July 2, 2013, 5:16 AM / in History, National News, News, Opinion

On Nov. 3, 1969, Richard Nixon, his presidency about to be broken by massive antiwar demonstrations, called on “the great silent majority” to stand by him for peace with honor in Vietnam. They did. Within days Nixon’s approval surged to 68 percent. The ferocious Republican partisan of the 1950s had won over millions of Democrats. Why? Because sons and brothers […]

Inspiration “The Left will say that we are on the wrong side of history, but that doesn’t matter if we’re on the right side of truth. And the truth is not that #LoveIsLove, but that the love of a man and woman, for life, is God’s design for marriage and family. Forty years ago, many people thought … that the […]

Somebody out there has got to be smoking or drinking something…. and considering the location of the meeting I would guess both…. The city of Jackson was recently named the 2013 City Livability Award Winner for “Most Livable” Small City in America by The United States Conference of Mayors. On June 22, on behalf of the citizens of Jackson, I accepted the […]

What Does John Hagee Really Want?

What Does John Hagee Really Want?

on June 28, 2013, 8:05 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

This column is archived here. John Hagee, and many other evangelical preachers, constantly beat the war drums. Without ceasing, they encourage America’s political leaders to wage non-stop wars of aggression–especially in the Middle East. They constantly trumpet America’s unconstitutional interventions in the Middle East with terms not unlike those used by militant Muslims. Hagee’s pro-war fanaticism is so extreme one […]

Is the Second Reconstruction over? The first ended with the withdrawal of Union troops from the Southern states as part of a deal that gave Rutherford B. Hayes the presidency after the disputed election of 1876. The second began with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, a century after Appomattox. Under the VRA, Southern states seeking to make even minor […]

You Will Be Made to Care

on June 27, 2013, 9:31 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By: Erick Erickson Much has been said about this post, (you should read this as well) including a good bit of heat toward me for putting on the front. There is much that could be said.  I disagree with a lot of the theology. In particular, I disagree with this: Is Homosexuality a Sin? I. Do. Not. Care. Luke 10 tells […]

Jumping the Shark

on June 25, 2013, 5:41 PM / in National News, News, Opinion

The phrase “jumping the shark” describes that gimmicky moment when something once considered significant is exposed as ludicrous. This in the last month the White House jumped the sequester. The precise moment came  Tuesday June 4th, when the administration announced that it was canceling public tours of the White House, blaming budget cuts. The Sequesterer in Chief has insisted that […]

Women in Combat, Seriously?

on June 24, 2013, 9:01 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

The fact that this is even being publicly discussed is a scathing indictment on how far our society has fallen morally.  It is quite conceivable that in the early days of the feminist movement, which is the real war on women declared by evil incarnate John D. Rockefeller, someone had the foresight to see women fighting wars as being its […]
