According to this article, the White House nixes idea of raising the Medicare eligibility age.  This sentence "Raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67 would save the federal government $125 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office, by shifting some of the health care burden to younger seniors by requiring them to obtain insurance on their own," is a little misleading.  Doesn't the author know that to get full Social Security benefits, the retirement age is no longer 65?  What is the problem with keeping Medicare eligibility the same age as full Social Security benefits?  It will not change anything if one chooses to retire early at age 62.

Solar energy isn't as "green" as proponents would like us to believe.

It really is pathetic what happens to some people in politics. 

And this is really disturbing that a company will go to this length to help elect and/or defeat a particular candidate without your knowledge. 

More disturbing news that our government is downloading the contents of laptops, cellphones and digital cameras belonging to international travelers.

Why doesn't this surprise us?

Rich Lowry sounds off on Obama's Benghazi two-step, while CNS news reminds us that Secretary Kerry had more protection on a trip to Arlington, VA than the State Department had deployed at our compound in Benghazi.

Almost Deja Vu, only this time it is the Governor from Colorado and it is hydrofracking water, not Governor Carey offering to drink a glass of toxic polychlorinated biphenyls.  It's time to let New York get to work, Govenor Cuomo, let NY hydrofrack.

The Heritage Foundation prepares us for tonight's State of the Union address....haven't we heard it all before?  (I'd really rather watch NCIS than listen to the meaningless words from the Narcissist-in-Chief.) 

Dr. Ben Carson, a man of true courage.  Dr. Carson would give a meaningful State of the Union address, one that we could all be proud of. 

Tuesday's with Thomas Sowell and my favorite topic:  Random Thoughts!
