    A federal judge has ruled that a controversial regulation that would give the Environmental Protection Agency jurisdiction over small streams and ditches is bureaucratic overreach and has halted the implementation of the rule. The judge was not pleased with the EPA, who said they would go ahead and implement the regulation in the 37 states that did not sue to end it.

    The unforeseen difficulties of implementing the Affordable Health Care Act (aka Obamacare) have key proponents scrambling for answers. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), one of the leading writers of the Obamacare legislation, now calls the program “complex beyond comprehension. We had hoped that somehow, someone would've come up with sensible procedures for how the thing is supposed to work, but no such luck. The system's as opaque as the day we passed it. Our high hopes are crashing down around us.” US Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius blames Republicans for the mess. “Instead of rolling up their sleeves...

    NEW YORK – A 1995 video depicts Barack Obama calling for “democracy with a small ‘d,’” while pushing a society based on collectivism and “common good.” In the video unearthed by KleinOnline, Obama hails unions and collective bargaining as encapsulating the societal “common good” of which he speaks. Obama urges society to collectively move “forward” – a word that would later serve as his 2012 campaign slogan. Obama was speaking in an Aug. 11, 1995 interview pushing his just published book, “Dreams From My Father.” At the time, Obama was a community organizer planning to launch a political career. Obama...

    In our political discourse, there are many words and phrases which mean entirely different things to different people. Justice, charity, and "the common good" come to mind. When Glenn Beck began warning people to run from houses of worships which preach "social justice" earlier this year, many critics took it as a stand against charity. Variations of "how could you be against 'social justice?" reverberated throughout the media.Perhaps the most prominent response came from Simon Greer of Jewish Funds for Justice. In a Washington Post op-ed, Greer took issue with Beck's charge to "make sure your church puts God first...

    What Is Social Justice? What, exactly, is social justice? (snip) Are we to gather from this that the term social justice is simply a synonym for living out the beauty of the Beatitudes? I once heard a professor at the Catholic University of Ružomberok, Slovakia, say that he thought of social justice as “an ideal arrangement of society, in which justice and charity are fully served. Until then, one cannot say that social justice has been realized.” Does this mean that social justice is a social ideal by which some people measure reality and toward which they strive, progressively, to...

    After World War II, the U.S. government invested an enormous amount of money in medicine; medical research, medical procedures and medical technologies. This investment made contemporary scientific medicine into American medicine, characterized by a continuing flow of new treatment possibilities. These advances raised all kinds of ethical questions. Some were personal and individual, others were social and political. Both type questions are addressed by a new academic discipline called bioethics. The first attempt to develop a scientific medicine took place in Greece in the 5th century B.C. It was called Hippocratic medicine. Closely linked with this first scientific medicine was...

    Let us call to mind Pope John XXIII’s famous definition of the common good, as slightly reformulated by the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “the sum total of the conditions of social life which allow people, either as groups or individuals, to reach their own perfection more fully and more easily.” The perfection of each citizen is the goal of civil society and is, therefore, an essential part of the common good. A few examples of the many required social conditions are the legal protection of life, the legal recognition of marriage as a union between a man and woman,...

    Among the several organizations using the term “common good” within the ranks of Catholic activism these days there are some who attempt to argue that when people like me emphasize that every procured abortion is intrinsically evil and can never further the Common Good, we are engaging in “a single issue” politics. They argue that this insistence fails to take into account other important elements of Catholic Social thought. I disagree and insist instead that it is the firm foundation for all that other Catholic Social thought. Some of these folks write me in response to my articles. I tell...

In essence, Cardinal George stated it was a violation of Catholic teaching to evoke the common good in politics without advocating legal protection of yet-to-be-born children. Several "Catholic" political organizations (Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United) have come into existence since 2004 using the "common good" as their guiding principle.

She went on to propose a solution to coming up with a solution for the problem — kind...

    The heart of the matter Our theme for today comes from George W Bush: “Freedom is the desire of every human heart.” When the president uses the phrase, he’s invariably applying it to various benighted parts of the Muslim world. There would seem to be quite a bit of evidence to suggest that freedom is not the principal desire of every human heart in, say, Gaza or Waziristan. But why start there? If you look in, say, Brussels or London or New Orleans, do you come away with the overwhelming impression that “freedom is the desire of every human heart”?...

In a Washington Post editorial last week, Bush’s former speechwriter Michael Gerson provided compelling clues about the president’s guiding ideology on the issue. Gerson’s lament that Americans would dare criticize Bush for abdicating his constitutional duty to enforce our laws should rightfully offend the millions of conservatives who have supported their...

    Last week, Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee released a draft of their tax plan that would raise the highest income tax rate by 4.3 percentage points to 39.3 percent immediately. And because the proposal doesn't extend the Bush tax cuts, the highest income tax rate would rise to the neighborhood of 44 percent after 2010; this would lift the top federal income tax rate higher than it was even under Bill Clinton, says the Wall Street Journal. Moreover, families with incomes between $250,000 and $500,000, the "marginal" tax rate paid on the next dollar of earned income...

Should she be given the power to implement it, we can say goodbye to the prosperity and opportunity we have enjoyed since the Reagan years. In a speech at Manchester School of Technology in New Hampshire, Mrs. Clinton said it's time to replace President Bush's "ownership society," which she called an "on your own" society, with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

    CARACAS (Reuters) - Hours after President Hugo Chavez shut down Venezuela's main opposition broadcaster, his government demanded an investigation of news network Globovision on Monday for allegedly inciting an assassination attempt on the leftist leader. Chavez took Radio Caracas Television, or RCTV, off the air at midnight on Sunday and replaced it with a state-run channel to promote his socialist programs. The move sparked international condemnation and accusations from the opposition that he was undermining democracy in the OPEC nation. Protests over the closure of RCTV, Venezuela's oldest private channel, simmered in several Venezuelan cities on Monday. In some locations,...

Washington will spend $24,106 per household in 2007 the highest total since World War II, and an inflation-adjusted $4,000 more than in 2001. The federal government will collect $21,992 per household in taxes. The remaining $2,114 represents this year's budget deficit per household, which, along with all prior government debt, will be dumped in the laps of our children.

    The Bush tax cuts enabled America to climb out of the Clinton recession despite the financial devastations of 9/11 and stock market downturns.  Ten straight months of economic progress and job creation have made the economy robust.         So it is incongruous that Hillary Clinton would tell a San Francisco audience recently that Democrats will rescind the Bush tax cuts for the ''common good.''         Mrs. Clinton’s plan is not only wrong, but it’s socialist.         Ronald Reagan defeated communism, but we are still being leeched by creeping socialism.  The 45 communist goals read into the Congressional Record in 1963...

    In the same week that Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, told a San Francisco audience that future President John Forbes Kerry will take money away from wealthy Americans "on behalf of the common good", the former First Lady's publisher announced it would not pay the $5.3 million deferred advance it owes for her book Living History. "To get the publishing industry, and our company in particular, back on track, we're going to cut that short and not give it to you," a spokesman for Simon and Shuster reportedly told Mrs. Clinton. "We're going to take things away from you on behalf...

    A warning to those making $50,000.00 per house whole from Hillary Rodham Clinton Below in RED is a DIRECT QUOTE from a typical liberal Democrat that believes they would better handle your money than you, and that you are not capable of making a finical discussion, a liberal doesn't want you to contribute to any organization that will not benefit their agendas, they don't want you to give to such organizations as a Church, and many other organizations that are really helping feed, and cloth the poor. "'Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may...

    Funny, the things leftists say when they're in a leftist town surrounded by fellow travelers. Hillary Clinton, erstwhile first lady, current U.S. senator representing New York and probable future presidential candidate, cut loose in San Francisco Monday night at a fund-raiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. "Many of you are well enough off that ... the (Bush) tax cuts may have helped you," Mrs. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to have to cut that short and not give it to you." Should Democrats win the White House and gain control...

    Hillary Clinton knows better than you do how to spend your paycheck. Really she does. Just ask her. Few media have trumpeted that Sen. Clinton exposed her socialist agenda during a speech Monday in San Francisco (which the Associated Press dubbed the "leftiest big city on the Left Coast"). But don't take our word for it. We'll go straight to the horse's mouth. "Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give...

    LIVES SAVED This day, June 30th, was to be the original date for the turnover of sovereignty to Iraq. If the original timeline had been followed there would have been massive attacks on civilian and military targets by terrorists throughout Iraq today. As of this time we haven't seen those attacks. Why not? Because the government took control two days ago. It's old news. Lives were saved by the decision to move up the timetable.

    The leftiest big city on the Left Coast was Clinton country on Monday, with former President Clinton continuing his blockbuster book tour and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton headlining a Democratic fund-raiser where she vowed to defeat the Republicans' "extraordinarily ruthless machine." Headlining an appearance with other Democratic women senators on behalf of Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is up for re-election this year, Hillary Clinton told several hundred supporters -- some of whom had ponied up as much as $10,000 to attend -- to expect to lose some of the tax cuts passed by President Bush if Democrats win the White...

    Yesterday, New York Senator Hillary Clinton was speaking at a fund-raiser in San Francisco on behalf of Senator Barbara Boxer. At that fund-raiser, she told those in attendance to expect to lose some of the tax cuts passed by President Bush if Democrats win the White House and control of Congress. That's right...she's telling everyone in advance she and the rest of her leftist pals are going to raise their taxes. Hillary really showed herself at this fund raiser --- if, that is, they manage to get the White House and control of the congress. Not only did Shrillary reveal...

  • Are rich Democrats stupid?

    I just read where Hillary made the following comments in a speech: "Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." So, I was just wondering if rich democrats are stupid? Someone tells them they are going to rob them, and they pay to get to hear this? What is wrong with this...
