Bill O’Reilly contends that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is the biggest tax increase ever. I sincerely doubt that is correct, unless it is measured in absolute dollars uncorrected for inflation and population size. Assuming that O’Reilly is correct in his limited definition of the Obamacare taxes, and the Right claims that all tax increases are bad as well as all taxes, is Obamacare a wise investment? I say it is. It is better for you and me, we as a nation, to live in a country where are fellow citizens are healthy and productive. That also means educating everyone up to their full potential so each and every one of us can contribute fully to our country and live up to our full potential.
Every September, FOX News sponsors a Miss Information beauty and talent competition to pick a new Miss Information. Female contestants compete in a beauty pageant in red dresses and red swimsuits and a talent competition consisting of ten questions on current events. Points are awarded for correct answers that blame President Obama and extra credit is awarded for creating a new phony scandal. If the winner does not already work for FOX, she is immediately offered an employment contract. The pageant should really be named Miss Mis-information.
The GOP have a number of suggestions for increased border security. One of the suggestions to protect our southern border is increased border security in Mexico and Central America. I suppose that means walls on our border to keep people out and walls in Central American countries and Mexico to keep people in. Ingenious people, the GOP, want to copy the former Soviet Union and East Germany.
I just received a message from Mike Huckabee soliciting support for Steve Daines in the Montana Senate race. Huckabee says he wants to pack the US Senate with rock sold conservatives. In that case, all he needs are their heads, rock solid.
