Posted: 01 Jul 2010 09:32 PM PDT

By Thomas E. Brewton Original provisions of the Constitution intended to prevent Congress from enacting "dumb" laws were vitiated by ratification of the 17th Amendment. Before ratification of the 17th Amendment it's unlikely that a Senate committee would have needed to raise the sort of question posed by Senator Coburn during confirmation hearings on Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Posted: 01 Jul 2010 09:31 PM PDT

Rev Michael Bresciani Only days before America's Fourth of July celebrations, in Racine Wisconsin President Obama mocked Congressmen John Boehner (R-OH) about his recent remarks.

Also not mentioned was the complete failure of this...

by Nathan Tabor Two-Hundred and Thirty-Four years ago, our Founding Fathers pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor -- putting literally their lives, their wealth, and their reputations on the line --- to guarantee freedom for future generations.

“Speaker Boehner” spooks liberals

Posted: 01 Jul 2010 05:21 PM PDT

Andrea Lafferty There isn't a lot of encouraging political news coming out of Washington these days but I am here to report that liberals in Congress think it is over for them. The deeply personal attacks on Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) are solid indicators that liberals believe the House of Representatives will be controlled by Republicans after November. So they have started the race for who will be the new Speaker. Any of us old enough to remember the last time the...

These are not "dreams of my father," these are my own dreams

Posted: 01 Jul 2010 05:10 PM PDT

Well, O.K., I know we shouldn't but we've come to expect politicians to be somewhat deceptive in their speeches and promises and we make allowances for it. Yes, it is wrong but after more than a century of it, one gets used to that fact. What Barry Soetoro is doing though, is not just exaggerating; twisting the truth a little bit more or less Clinton style; what he's doing is being like Woodrow Wilson, FDR and Jimmy Carter combined into one. This guy lies like nobody else in the...
