Gas Prices Soaring - Don't Blame Obama
I took the picture with my cell phone on Nov. 1, 2008 in Loveland, OH, a Cincinnati suburb, a few days before Obama was elected. Unleaded regular for $1.94 a gallon. Prices are nearly double that now. Some places in Florida, they're paying nearly $6 a gallon.
Of course, none of this has any relation to Obama's performance as president. It's not like he nixed the Keystone pipeline from Canada which would have brought us cheap, ethical gas. It's not like he's been slow walking drilling permits which also kills jobs. It's not like he appointed an Energy Secretary who said, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe."
I'm sure he'll figure all this out, as soon as Michelle gets back for one of her 16 vacations. The price of gas sure isn't hurting their lifestyle. In the meantime, I can forget about paying the balance of my son's college education, or saving for my daughter's college expenses, or replacing my car that has nearly 400,000 miles on it, or....
Think I'll go eat some cake.

Obama, the Catholic Church and the March of Totalitarianism
The president of the United States has decided to go Henry VIII on the Church's medieval ass. Whatever religious institutions might profess to believe in the matter of "women's health," their pre-eminences, jurisdictions, privileges, authorities and immunities are now subordinate to a one-and-only supreme head on earth determined to repress, redress, restrain and amend their heresies. One wouldn't wish to overextend the analogy: For one thing, the Catholic Church in America has been pathetically accommodating of Beltway bigwigs' ravenous appetite for marital annulments in a way that Pope Clement VII was disinclined to be vis-a-vis the English king and Catherine of Aragon. But where'd all the pandering get them? In essence, President Obama has embarked on the same usurpation of church authority as Henry VIII: as his Friday morning faux-compromise confirms, the continued existence of a "faith-based institution" depends on submission to the doctrinal supremacy of the state.Read more »
