Are We Broke (Part 1a)?  Health Rights on the Yellow Brick Road to Misery

(This is the second in a series of postings about the extent of US liabilities, their implications for our economy and personal wealth, and a path out of the mess we are in.  The Series was interrupted last week because developments in the health care debate demanded all of our attention.  This column transitions...

The End of the Constitution?

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Majority Leader of the Senate and the President of the United States are conspiring to violate the explicit dictates of the Constitution of the United States to force their statist vision of health reform on an unwilling public.  They are willing to violate the oaths of...

Contacting Congress – We Are All Spam Now

This is going to be my shortest post, ever.  And it is another interruption of my ‘Are We Broke?’ series.  But this appears to be the week we live or die on ObamaCare.  And that bill is the most important – and frightening – bit of social engineering ever contemplated by an American Congress. Like many...

Outrage!  Speaker Urges End to Constitutional Governance

The Speaker of the House of Representatives appears ready to shred what remains of the Constitution to further her power-mad agenda.   She doesn’t have the votes to pass the broadly despised ObamaCare bill, so she is favoring a procedural move that would ‘deem’ the Senate version as having passed without House members actually having to...

Thanks for the Party – May I Have a Doggie Bag?

The Federal Government set a new record for monthly budget deficits last month.  According to the US Treasury Department on Thursday, the Feds ran up a $221-billion deficit during February, 2010.  That’s just over $700 for every man, woman and child in the United States.  In one month.  Just 28 days.   Yes, that’s $700...

UN Charters ‘Independent’ Panel to Put Lipstick on Climate Change Monkey

Rough Truths is pleased to confirm that the UN Secretary General has chartered an ‘independent’ committee to try and restore the destroyed reputation of its Nobel Prize winning IPCC (Independent Panel on Climate Change) – the ‘recognized authority’ on anthropogenic global climate change fear mongering.  In making the announcement today, UN Secretary General Ban asserted that the ‘consensus’ for...

Is a New Rouge Army at Work in US Schools?

I was watching the local news Thursday night – something I seldom do because it is usually not informative – and learned that there were around 100 protests around the nation against public education budget cuts.  They got a good amount of coverage by the local and national press, and were almost uniformly presented as understandable...

The Last Honest Man in the Senate?

Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY), the retiring conservative Senator, was vilified by the Senate Majority Leader and the press for committing a cardinal sin in Washington, DC this week.  He demanded we actually find a way to pay for a new spending bill, and that the Senate follow its own PAYGO law (passed with much...

Time to Finally Finish Off The Banks? New Treasury Idea Gives Hope to Haitian-Style Takeover Of America

Administration Proposes Ban on Foreclosures In what could prove to be most destructive proposal yet floated by our friends in Washington – and it’s tough to reach that level of fecklessness in a parade that includes floats submitted by ObamaCare; Cap & Trade; Stimulus I, II and III; Sotomayor; Bond holder rip-offs at GM...

Desperate Times in DC: Health Summit Craters and Madness to Follow

February 25, 2010
By John

So it would seem the only way to pass a health reform bill that the public deeply reviles is to misuse Senate rules requiring 60 votes to pass policy legislation, and to cajole, threaten or bribe enough endangered House members to vote once again for this effective nationalization of the health industry.  Well folks,...
