Gun Control Again

A mass shooting occurred at Ft. Hood in Texas.  We will have more “gun control” speeches by politicians who pretend the 2nd Amendment doesn’t exist.  Eliminating assault weapons and limiting the size of ammunition clips won’t stop these murders.

The real solutions are keeping guns away from mental patients, criminals, and terrorists.  Since these are impossible, the only solution is self…

The Debt 2

Assume there were reasonable restrictions on how much money the government could spend (like a balanced budget requirement and a debt ceiling that couldn’t be changed every day).  The 536 people we’ve sent to Washington wouldn’t have the money to wage a war.  They would have to make a decision on whether  to spend money on additional unemployment benefits or the $100 million it spends every four years to subsidize parties at the political conventions.

Taking away their credit card and…

The Debt

A Nation of Ostriches

Unemployment Insurance Extension

The Social Security Act, which contains provisions for old age insurance, welfare, and unemployment insurance, was signed into law in 1935.  It makes no sense to define a change in a 75 year old program as “emergency” and therefore not subject to the same funding requirements as any other legislation.

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
