Russia is downright Third World when it comes to almost any reasonable standards. Things don’t work right in Russia. Yet the Sochi Games serve as a stern reminder: Russia might be Third World, but we’re definitely third place in the world these days.
Despite assurances by the undocumented usurper currently occupying the people’s house, the insurance debacle that bears his name was never about healthcare at all. It appears to have been designed to destroy the middle class.
The bank and auto bailouts, the “green” energy scams, the gunrunning disasters, the terrorism cover-ups, the domestic spying, the Internal Revenue Service bullying and Obamacare all got their green lights from Kelo v. City of New London.
Don’t fall for the President’s MyRA scam. You’d be better off putting that money under your mattress. It will still lose value because of inflation, but at least the government won’t know where it is so it can steal it.
Witness the sad decline of ABC News’ aging newsmagazine 20/20. While it never achieved the notability of 60 Minutes, it likewise never dove headfirst into the deep end of the crazed activism of its neighbors like Dateline NBC. But then last week, 20/20 served up “Young Guns.”
GOP Presidential hopefuls are already jockeying for position in the 2016 Republican primary, and none is doing more jockeying than Senator Rand Paul. It seems this apple fell a long way from the tree.
There’s no shortage of irony in a looming snowstorm belting the Deep South on the same night President Barack Obama will likely announce executive orders to combat so-called “global warming.” Moments like this make me realize the blissful cocoon of ignorance in which liberals spend most of their lives.

Medical care in the U.S. for seniors appears to be in jeopardy and soon not even available at all for ages 75 and above. Even now, qualification for Medicare for any age may be means-tested. I believe that it may become illegal in the U.S. to hire private physician care outside of Medicare.
If President Barack Obama is successful in accomplishing all that he set forth in last night’s State of the Union address, he will have transformed the Presidency, almost beyond recognition, from the proper and limited role our Nation’s Founders codified in the document that describes his job: the U.S. Constitution.
