In the fog of scandals, it has fairly well been lost that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has rolled out new regulations setting in motion coal’s destruction as an energy source in the United States. We continue to be told that no respectable scientist argues against the case of climate change. Some have even argued the scientific debate is over (as if any scientific debate can ever be over). So we set out to find a legitimate scientific expert who argues against the current mantra. We searched far and wide (not really -- it was easy) and found two climatologists.
Some people want you to suspend your imagination and your memory regarding what the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) actually states in terms of who can receive subsidies for their health insurance.
Any parent who tells you that they have never struggled with a child most likely is playing a little loose with the truth.
Obama has a clear path to reestablishing his position as a respected leader. This moment calls for the leadership of the United States. And it can be done without causing a broader war with Russia. There has to be a clear show of resolve.
?People who are not distraught about Lois Lerner and the IRS must have never actually dealt with the organization. As someone who has for 36 years, it is clear that at best we are dealing with fabrications and at worst outright lies and criminal actions. The fact that any American --let alone the national press, Congressional Democrats, and the White House – might not be agitated is dangerous for our society.
What I found was that gluten is a protein found in grains – particularly wheat, rye and barley. Gluten causes dough to rise and gives it a chewy texture. It is true that some people have intolerance to gluten, but it is not an allergy – it is just an intolerance.
?By now you must be pretty sick of reading and hearing about Hillary Clinton. Personally, I am ready for No Mas. But after I wrote my first column about Benghazi many readers wrote and asked me to promise I would not let the subject die. Since nothing has happened that has warranted dropping the subject I felt obligated to march on to find the facts. Hillary has now released her book, Hard Choices, with a 34 page chapter dedicated to the subject. I spent my hard earned money to find out if the Secretary of State answered any questions.
?The world lost not only one of the greatest baseball players of all-time this week, but one of the finest representatives for baseball, sports and humans of all kinds. The death of this wonderful man at the early age of 54-years-old was a loss for all of us.
Big Business does some things that are utterly necessary in modern society. They build airplanes and cars.
One might think that when a President is reeling from a scandal (VA) that has all sides of the political spectrum screaming for heads to roll and for criminal charges against government employees, that his Administration would take a break and wait for the air to clear. But no, not when you are a true believer, and that is what Barack Obama has finally shown himself to all to be.
Two months ago, I wrote a column that addressed the first part of a report on the future of Los Angeles.
The last subject we should be engaged in over Memorial Day weekend is the hapless handling of the medical care for the people who have made the most personal sacrifices for this country.
As someone whose chosen profession is dealing with governmental tax agencies, I am almost always flummoxed by the realization of others that the people who work for those tax collection operations would be in favor of collecting more taxes.
Most everyone remembers that the biggest story of last year’s holiday season was not the hottest new toy or the stampeding crowds seeking post-Christmas sales. The biggest story was a computer breach at Target, one of America’s largest retailers that exposed the credit card information of millions of people to despicable hackers.
Our President has attempted to make a major issue of the difference between the very successful in our country and the rest of us as a focus of his party’s campaign for the 2014 elections. He does have a point that some people’s income levels have really soared while others have languished. He just has a wrong-headed solution to the problem.
President Obama is doing his victory dance, telling us how his health care plan has become a success because his more than his targeted number (8 million) clicked their desire to have health insurance on a website. We will soon see how many are real policyholders, and later we will see their real costs as everything shakes out with co-pays and renewals next year. What we do know is that Medicaid is a pending disaster waiting to happen.
Six years ago, then-candidate Obama was encased in sophisticated artwork that conveyed his campaign message of “Hope and Change.” Leading up to the 2014 elections he may have not abandoned change, but he certainly has abandoned hope as his guiding principle to help maintain the U.S. Senate in the hands of The Undertaker and his fellow Democrats.
People bemoan the divisions that exist in America today. On a recent trip to New York City it took a New York minute (actually seven minutes) to show the grand demarcation that has occurred and it is more like a rupture.
We all know that it will not last forever. But when the end comes you’re never really ready to accept it. I had been through this before, but this one was the toughest. She was the one that had my heart more than any other. She was the one I will miss the most.
