The Little Sisters of the Poor, first recognized as a Pontifical Institute by Pope Pius XI on July 9, 1854, is a religious congregation dedicated to the care of the elderly poor. According to their website, this mission means that the sisters “welcome them into our homes, form one family with them, accompany them from day to day and care for them with love and respect until God calls them h...

When Congressional Democrats rammed through a healthcare bill that will likely bankrupt the country, those who rallied in opposition were labeled bigoted, racist and un-patriotic. When Republican legislators voted to make Michigan the 24th right-to-work state in the nation, they were accused of being enemies of democracy. Coincidence? Hardly. It’s all part of a plan to paint proponents of limite... More
In the lead-up to the presidential election, the opponents of ObamaCare warned that the November 6 vote was America’s last chance to end the health care law that was passed in early 2010. While the election was certainly an ideal chance—and a missed one—there’s no such thing as a last chance, unless the opposition decides to give up. And the early returns suggest that opponents of the new ... More

To follow the media spin cycle in a presidential election can be enough to drive even the sanest person crazy, and given that I’m far from that, I generally keep it arm’s length. We’ve gone from last month, where it was said President Obama was an absolute shoo-in for re-election—in spite of the fact that average polling data amounted to little more than his lead moving two to four points....

One of the consistent charges leveled against Romney in the comments ’round these parts has been that he will raise taxes on the middle class while reducing taxes on the wealthy.
Problem is, the study the folks who make that charge hav... More
A rundown of the events of the past week or so:
The Inspector General reported that, contra Eric Holder’s assertions, top Justice officials in Washington *did* have damning knowledge of Fast and Furious, the gun-walking scandal that has left at least one American law enforcement official, and hundreds of Mexicans, dead.
Our ambassador to Libya, who was barely guarded, was murdered in Bengha... More
Spotted over at IMAO, this doctor running for state senate pretty much nails it.
Transcript of the one sentence to rule it all:
We’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people without adding a single new doctor (but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents), written by a committee whos... More
I understand there’s another major speech tonight by the President of the United States, making the best case he can why he should be reelected. Sisyphean task, that.
It will, however, be followed by what I’m most interested in: Cardinal Dolan’s closing prayer. THAT. could be the highlight of the conventions season if the Dems continue their anti-God, anti-Jerusalem, anti-life, a... More
“A republic, if you can keep it,” Ben Franklin famously responded when asked what sort of government they had just set up at the Constitutional convention in 1787.
A republic means the people rule through their elected representatives. Laws are written in the deliberative bodies of Congress. Laws are enforced by the President and the necessary officers of the executive branch. Laws are... More
