Present opportunities, dangers

We are now in a kind of political no-man’s-land between an administration on its way out and a new administration taking shape. Predictions are always risky — and nowhere more so than in times like these.
What we can do, however, is assess where we are, and what some of the opportunities and dangers are.
The opportunities are many, which is to say that many things are in desperate need of changing, beginning with rebuilding our dangerously neglected and undermined military forces. The monstrosity of ObamaCare needs to be gotten rid of, not just cosmetically adjusted.

In defense of Ben Carson’s appointment

How do we know Dr. Ben Carson is unqualified to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development?
Because House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said so, calling him “disturbingly unqualified.”
 “There is no evidence that Dr. Carson brings the necessary credentials to hold a position with such immense responsibilities and impact on families and communities across America,” Pelosi said.

The left rolls the dice for you

Sometimes life forces us to make decisions, even when we don’t have enough information to know how the decision will turn out. The risks may be even greater when people make decisions for other people. Yet there are some who are not only willing, but eager, to take decisions away from those who are directly affected.
Something as personal as what doctor we want to go to has been taken out of our hands by ObamaCare. What job offer, at what pay rate, someone wants to accept has been taken out of their hands by minimum wage laws.

Is New Orleans under siege?

The headlines resounded across the front page of both New Orleans’ daily newspapers. “AN UNCONSCIONABLE ACT” blared the New Orleans Advocate. “IT WAS PANIC,” shouted The Times Picayune.
Bullets were flying all over Bourbon Street as a visiting Baton Rouge man was killed and 10 others were injured. And the continuing tragic news is that 42 people were shot in the Crescent City in the previous 10 days alone.
