Yes, Your Taxes Do Fund Planned Parenthood Abortions

By on Jul 31, 2015 | 1 comment

In 1976, the House of Representatives passed the so-called ‘Hyde Amendment’, essentially barring the use of taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for abortions. Here is a more detailed description: In U.S. politics, the Hyde Amendment is a legislative provision barring the use of certain federal funds to pay for abortion unless the pregnancy arises from incest, rape, or to save the life of the mother. The Hyde Amendment is not a permanent law, but rather is a “rider” that in various forms has been routinely attached to annual appropriations bills since 1976. Legislation including the Hyde Amendment generally only restricts the use of funds allocated for the Department of Health and Human Services and primarily affects Medicaid. The amendment, named for late Illinois Congressman Henry Hyde has long been used to taxpayer dollars from directly funding abortions....

GMOs & An Answer For The D.A.R.K. Cause

By on Jul 28, 2015 | 1 comment

Finally, the anti-GMO crowd seems to be getting the set down they’ve sorely needed for awhile now. In response to a push in recent years by the Natural food industry and a segment of the easily led public that has caused several states to take up the issue at the ballot box, the House of Representatives passed the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act last week. The act would keep states from requiring labeling on foodstuffs containing ingredients that have been genetically modified. Those pushing for GMO labeling have termed such a measure the “Denying Americans the Right to Know”, or DARK act. These groups have been peddling this nonsense for years: That foods containing genetically modified organisms need to be labeled as having them. They’ve even won GMO labeling initiatives in three northeastern states: Connecticut, Vermont & Maine. However, they...

So Hillary is trying to reach out to younger voters and in a recent Vine talked about how she was “chilling” in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It was lame of course and on the advice of Amy Otto, I spruced it up and here it is: Trouble!

Impugning A POW: Trump Campaign Hits New Low

By on Jul 20, 2015 | 0 comments

Unlike some of my colleagues, I have no issue with Donald Trump declaring himself as a presidential candidate. While I do think the man is strictly an opportunist acting in only his own best interest, you won’t see me overheating about the latest things spewing out of Donald Trump’s mouth. I simply don’t think he’s built for the long haul.  I am no expert, but I expect his popularity will too soon, long before November 2016. Actually, I’m praying for it. Trump’s most recent jaw dropping remarks concerned U.S. Senator John McCain of Arizona, in which he stated McCain was a war hero “because he was captured.”  I despise Senator McCain. I think he is a walking, talking personification of why the U.S. Congress so badly needs term limits. He is, in my opinion, a testament of all that is wrong with today’s Republican party.  John McCain the Naval aviator, however, is a...

A New Hope For Greece?

With Greece humiliated at the hands of the evil banksters, the Troika, the ECB, Merkel, and other EU nations at the horror of paying back money their politicians borrowed for promises they couldn’t keep (which can never really be paid back, anyway)… After the IMF (allegedly) called for Tsipras to resign his position as prime minister… Who can Greece call to save it? Gyro Man – Not the gyro Greece deserves, but the gyro Greece...

5 Myths Being Espoused About Donald Trump

By on Jul 12, 2015 | 42 comments

Over a year ago, I wrote the following about Donald Trump: It’s time for conservatives to stop playing footsie with Donald Trump. Now that Donald Trump is officially in the 2016 race for the GOP nomination, it’s disheartening to see conservatives actually propping this clown up and giving him the legitimacy he doesn’t deserve in any way shape or form. People aren’t listening and in the long run, Trump will only hurt the party. Along the way, the Traveling Trump Clown Show has naturally attracted people who are pissed off at the GOP “establishment.” I myself have gone off on the GOP leadership at times and that criticism is often well deserved. But the notion that Trump is speaking truth to GOP establishment power is just absurd. In that vein, there are people saying things about Trump in order to justify their cozying up to him (even if it’s only on...
