A Second Stimulus Package? Yikes!

India, Japan and the U.S. repeatedly deliver unaffordable and ineffective spending proposals.

“Calls Grow to Increase Stimulus Spending,” says a recent front-page Wall Street Journal headline. Author Deborah Solomon claims, “Some economists are pressuring the White House to enact a second round of stimulus spending.” The article mentions only two economists, however, one of whom heads “a left-leaning Washington think tank” (the Economic Policy Institute) that always tries to pressure the government to spend more. The other, a former Bush official, dreams of “something that is relatively fast and thoughtful” like “personal tax cuts.” But asking Congress to do something fast and thoughtful is like asking fish to fly.

Ironically, another headline in the same paper on the same day said, “Spending Spooks India’s Sensex.” The article read: “Indian stocks fell 5.8% Monday amid concern the proposed government budget will add to the country’s fiscal deficit.”

Our Laws, Not Foreign Laws

One of the threats facing our judiciary is the view that judges can use the laws of foreign nations to interpret the American Constitution.

This is not an abstract argument but a view shared by legal minds across the country and put into practice by our own Supreme Court. It must be refuted and rejected – it is dangerous, and it is wrong.
It is dangerous to our rights and liberties and to the Constitution that protects them. It is wrong because it violates the entire concept of republican government, in which the moral authority of our laws derives from the fact that they represent the justly expressed will of “we the people.” Simply put: Do judges serve American citizens or the citizens of the world?
It’s about time!

Thumbnail image for breaking.jpgToday Orlando, FL, late-term abortionist James Pendergraft lost his appeal in the 5th District Court of Appeal, and the suspension of his license by the FL Board of Medicine stands.

According to a court document filed today, “Dr. Pendergraft violated sections 456.072(1)(k) and 458.331(1)(g) when he performed a third trimester abortion in his clinic, which is not a hospital.”…

The msm trashed Bush for the same thing.

The Obama administration will proceed with a Bush-era plan to use National Security Agency assistance in screening government computer traffic on private-sector networks, with AT&T as the likely test site, according to three current and former government officials.


President Obama said in May that government efforts to protect computer systems from attack would not involve “monitoring private sector networks or Internet traffic” and Department of Homeland Security officials say that the new program will only scrutinize data going to or from government systems.
