“I’m not quitting”
What state our union is in. What a mess. The economic downward spiral of the country continues with progressive job losses, progressive increases in unsustainable debt, progressive declines in home values, and a progressive devaluation of our currency. A progressive loss of confidence in the competency and integrity of our elected officials instills fear for the future.
America awaited, with cautious optimism, President Obama’s address to the nation last night. The president, it is was rumored, had heard the voices of the American people. Mr Obama was willing to admit that perhaps a more centrist approach was in order.
Such rumors instantly spread outrage among the distant left. They had voted for a Che Guevara, and ended up with a Harry Truman. OMSNBC talk hosts could be seen visibly struggling to hold in the word “traitor”.
Today, however, all is well on the leftist front. Ideology has proved to be more important than common sense and prudence. President Barack Obama’s solution for stabilizing the floundering ship of state? A progressive intake of water.

Millions will be lost to fraud and mismanagement
The heart of America is reaching out to the people of Haiti. There will be an outpouring of generosity to fund the massive relief effort for a nation already beleaguered by heart wrenching poverty. Millions of American dollars will fund the search and rescues teams, medical personnel and supplies, food, water, clothing and temporary shelter required to sustain the earthquake survivors. Millions of dollars more will be needed to rebuild what infrastructure they had. Every one of those dollars will be crucial to the success of the relief efforts.
So it is absolutely critical that as donors we maintain responsible vigilance over our naturally giving hearts or the money will be wasted. And those we sought to help will continue to suffer.

Conservatives are wasting time on the Reid nonsense
It almost seems as if the conservative talk show circuit has shut down. Disastrous healthcare legislation negotiations being conducted in secrecy at the White House? President Barack Obama’s imminent plans for global warming tax mandates and amnesty for illegal aliens? Congress drooling over the prospect of another earmark laden bogus stimulus bill? Barely a peep.
Right now the only news seems to be the old news, as contained in the new political “blockbuster” Game Change. Liberals are hypocrites on race and free speech.
Liberal hypocrisy, on anything however, is actually the oldest news somehow still surviving as “news”. And for some reason conservative talk show hosts are wasting precious airtime broadcasting it.

Republican Steve Brown is on the verge of capturing Ted Kennedy’s senate seat
In a recent article on our Radiant Cross Right To Life blog, Abortion Incorporated 2010, we made clear that the only way to “stop the abortion mandate”, which is certain to be incorporated into whatever form of Obamacare passes, is to defeat the healthcare bill itself.
And, of course, Abortion aside, the bill will do nothing to improve, or lower the cost of, healthcare in America and is terrifying in its scope and implications for the future. We concluded the article by exhorting one and all to continue to rain down letters, e-mails and phone calls on Capitol Hill, and to remember above all the power of faith.
And now, seemingly right out of the God works in mysterious ways category, there is indeed a clear ray of hope piercing the dreadful dark clouds of Obamacare hovering over the nation. Massachusetts Republican State Senator Scott Brown is suddenly on the verge of capturing Ted Kennedy’s former senate seat.

Doing the opposite
Washington DC, for the last five years or so, has come across as a series of bad sitcoms. Scripts too ridiculous to be believable. Most of the leading characters too arrogant and self absorbed to relate to or find enjoyable. As the first season of Obama heads toward a close it’s easy to see that the producers have tried to model their show after one episode of a legendary sitcom.
In that one episode of Seinfeld, just can’t ever get it right George Costanza decides that the answer to his problems in life is to begin doing the complete opposite of whatever his first instincts might be. Women, career, every day situations or whatever, George began “ignoring every urge towards common sense and good judgment I’ve ever had”.
This has been the theme of every script for Obama since the first episode aired on January 20. Doing the opposite.
It is, indeed, difficult to call to mind anytime during the last year that the star of Obama implemented any policy that appears to have been based upon “common sense and good judgment”. And the upcoming season finale, titled “Costanza Care” will be a block buster episode of doing the opposite.
