John-Boehner-Crying

By Steve Deace

Big Spending Republicans

The U.S. Congress, with Republicans in control of the House of Representatives, hasn’t even finished a full term, but already it’s spent more more than the first 97 Congresses combined. That’s right, the Republican-controlled U.S. Congress that was elected in 2010 as a check on President Obama’s big-spending ways, is the biggest spending Congress of all time, and it’s not even close. Tell me why I have to vote Republican again? And before Speaker John Boehner starts making excuses again, keep in mind the Constitution requires all appropriations (spending) to begin in the House, which means not a dime of our money is allowed to be spent without the consent of the chamber Boehner and the Republicans control.

The Propaganda Exposed

This article from The Atlantic, not exactly the right-wing press, should be shown to every pastor, Christian, conservative, and Republican in the nation. There is simply no excuse for caving to the homosexual lobby at any time or anywhere. Despite the fact the American people erroneously believe 25% of the U.S. population is same-sex attracted, the reality is the number is 2% or lower.

Creationism Remains Popular in America

A new Gallup survey says that 46% of Americans believe the God of the Bible created human beings in their present form within the last 10,000 years, which is often described as a creationist viewpoint. Only 15% of Americans in the poll said they believed human beings evolved without direct guidance from the God of the Bible. So explain to me why we allow that 15% to indoctrinate our kids in our taxpayer-funded classrooms again?

    Because the truth, however inconvenient, is still the truth.

      Care to present some evidence of what you consider “truth”?  It’s hard to put credence in something coming from nothing.

        What do think the Big Bang Theory is saying? They say that 15 billion years ago everything came from nothing, and then managed to organize itself into life as we know it over billions of years.

          That’s what I’m saying, Mark.  I’d like Bryan to present the evidence that the 15% consider to be truth.  (I’m pretty sure I can’t buy into it.)

    Since Harry Reid will not allow a budget to be voted on in the Senate the only choice House Republicans have is to pass continuing resolutions to keep the government funded at the excessive levels of the last passed budget, or to not pass a continuing resolution which in effect shuts the government down. The Republicans either have to bite the bullet and call the Democrats bluff and shut it down, or keep passing continuing resolutions.
