Weekly Wrap-Up

According to President Obama, we may as well forget about nominating a GOP candidate for President and the November elections, since he has announced he has five more years to pass what he promised in 2008. While he stated "we don't live in a monarchy", he certainly thinks he does at times, especially when he tramples on our First Amendment.

We experienced States joining together to fight Obamacare, now, fortunately, States are joining the fight to block the contraception mandate.

Could the US Supreme Court try to revisit the Citizens United vs FEC case? According to the Heritage Foundation, Justices Ginsberg and Breyer, who dissented, would like to take another look at the case, not a new case, just another look. As noted by the Heritage Foundation, this is a troubling trend and its implications must be considered when we cast our votes in November.

Another very troubling trend, is President Obama's apology to Islamic radicals. The Washington Times Editorial is correct in stating that "Mr. Obama should have learned by now that bowing to foreign mob violence only justifies and encourages the extremists. Counterinsurgency means never having to say you’re sorry." Let us know what you think in our weekly poll.

The President's wife is hitting the campaign trail again, and wants citizens to share the wealth, saying if a family in this country is struggling, we can not be satisfied with our own families good fortune. Interesting choice of words considering those who attended paid anywhere from $250 to $10,000 to attend.

This is not good news for the taxpayers of New York State, especially when the proposal intends to give new employees the ability to choose which plan they want. Long term savings will only be realized when government changes to a defined contribution plan. Organized labor continues to drive the issue with little regard for those who are paying the bills. Harry Wilson makes the point well here.

Raising the minimum wage makes no sense at all as Steve Malanga points out again.

Wendy Long (no relation) is beginning to make the rounds and introducing herself to political leaders and looks like a strong potential candidate for U. S. Senate.

Enjoy your weekend, with baseball and football not being played, it is a quiet sports weekend, especially since the new sports sensation, Jeremy Lin and the Knicks are not scheduled to play until Wednesday.
