Did Jonathan Gruber Ever Really Exist?

Jonathan Gruber

Who exactly is Jonathan Gruber, that mysterious MIT professor that most of us were first introduced to last week through videos of him gloating over the “stupidity” of American voters for not understanding that they were being conned into supporting Obamacare? He sure seems like an important person. He was, after all, an architect of…

Obamacare Architect: Stupid Americans Let Us Pass the Law

Gruber-Daly

Soon after President Obama was elected to a second term in office in 2012, I wrote a column for this website entitled, “How Can Obama Respect an Electorate That Would Re-Elect Him?” The piece presented the argument that the majority of the country, at the time, chose not to factor the president’s job performance (during…

Republican Election Wave? Cancel the Midterms!

Cancel the midterms

Tomorrow is election day, and if the polls and early ballot returns are of any indication, it appears it will be a good night for the Republican Party. National media outlets are estimating that there’s a very good likelihood that the GOP will take control of the U.S. Senate. The Washington Post puts those chances…

The Legend of Mark Uterus

There was a time when I’d roll my eyes whenever I’d hear the media hype a possible yet highly improbable health epidemic hitting the United States. A few years ago, we were all worried about the H1N1 flu virus (aka the Swine Flu). Before that, it was the feared Bird (Avian) Flu. Remember SARS, the…

Did Trickle-down Complacency Lead to the White House Breach?

Last week, there was a troubling incident at the White House when a man with a knife (later identified as Omar J. Gonzalez) climbed the fence and actually made his way inside the presidential residence before he was apprehended by the Secret Service. The news generated a plethora of jokes from late-night comedians and people…

Why Obama’s Low Approval Ratings Aren’t Newsworthy

Over the past six years, it’s been demonstrated countless times that if it weren’t for double standards, the national news media wouldn’t have any standards at all. We’ve watched on as the same outlets who desperately tried to tie George W. Bush to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff yawned when it came to the unanswered questions…
