[To Joseph Farah:] Love your work and love you for trying. I will offer one suggestion for your consideration: Get back to the basics. Focus on eliminating baseline budgeting, a key reason for our bloated federal budget. It is something Americans can understand.
If the GOP attacked baseline budgeting and made Democrats defend it, perhaps we could win an important battle and make significant progress toward winning the war on profligate federal spending. Then a cut would be a cut, and a $100 billion/year cut would not be trumpeted as a $1 trillion cut. We can’t win the war until we eliminate baseline budgeting and congressional ... continue reading »
Dear Ray Comfort,
I just watched your trailer for the Beatles video and was stunned at the callousness of the people interviewed. I remember the Beatles very well, having grown up in the late ’50s as the music industry was changing. I met all four Beatles by chance at an airport with my parents when I was very young. They had just finished a concert and were on their way somewhere. The encounter lasted for just a few minutes but I remember it like it was yesterday.
I was saddened when John was murdered in 1980 but not surprised. I remember reading his last intervie ... continue reading »
It should be obvious to everyone that America needs a decent health-care scheme. But this repeated knocking of the British health-care system is just not true.
As an example, my father-in-law was taken violently ill at 8 p.m. on a Sunday evening. The doctor was sent for; he arrived in 10 minutes. Ten minutes later an ambulance arrives, and he is taken into the local hospital. Two hours later he is operated on for gallstones. Is that fast enough? Oh, by the way, all free.
Another example of the awful system we have here: I know of a medication here that costs $2,700 for 30 tablets – in the U.K. it is free, but the health sch ... continue reading »
What can be done to correct the vote fraud for the next election? Major work must be done all over this country to preserve the sanctity of the voting process.
It is a disgrace that a nation like ours can’t have a standardized system. We also make sure that all legitimate voters votes count, especially our servicemen and women.
Nonpartisan people should be running the polling places. There should be no more early voting or provisional voting. Absentee ballots should only be for those who will be out of the country or their state. No more voting twice, and registration for all should be the same.
It is time for a ... continue reading »
A question I never see addressed is that Barack Obama’s father had multiple wives. I believe I read that he was married in Kenya prior to his “marriage” to Barack’s mother. If there was no divorce from the Kenyan wife, which I have never read happened, he would, in fact, be a bigamist and Barack a bastard.
Thus, he would not be legitimate issue of two parents, much less two American parents. Am I off the rails here?
