Obamacare Goes to the U.S. Supreme Court

in Blog, Newsletters, Obamacare 1 Comment

For the next two days, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Florida v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, the case to determine whether Obamacare is constitutional or not. Obamacare has come under fire from many different groups, and there are several questions that need to be answered:

  • Is Obamacare unconstitutional because of its individual mandate, stating that every person must buy health care, and doesn’t this constrain individual freedom and violate the Constitutional concept of limited government?
  • Because there is a penalty for not buying health insurance, will that penalty be considered a tax or a fine?
  • Does Obamacare use taxpayer dollars to fund abortions?

We Can Still STOP SB48!

in Blog, Newsletters, SB48 0 Comments

A few months ago, we told you about the passage of a troubling bill that was passed in California – SB 48.  According to this piece of legislation, school classes from grades K-12 would be required to include instruction on the contributions of gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual people in social science curricula.  In addition:

  • SB 48 forces all public schools to include positive discussions of the sexual orientations of transgender, bisexual, and gay Americans in all social science courses. Nothing can “reflect adversely” on these lifestyles.
  • SB 48 requires the creation of new instructional materials at a time when school districts can hardly afford it.
  • SB 48 ties the hands of teachers and administrators at the local level and often contradicts what students are taught at home.
  • SB 48 requires teachers and administrators to enter into the divisive debate over sexual orientation and morality and to portray only one side of that debate.  They are being asked not to tolerate but to advocate.  Read More

Historical Lessons: Has America learned or are we doomed to repeat it?

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
George Santayana, philosopher and poet

I have recently read and heard political leaders and writers who have expressed concern regarding our democratic form of government.  In one instance, presidential candidate Ron Paul was quoted as warning that the United States is “slipping into a fascist system where it’s a combination of government and big business and authoritarian rule and the suppression of individual rights of each and every American citizen.”        Read More
