Today, Dr. Donnica Moore was on The View and the topic was preventing bone loss in women.  One of the ladies asked her about the recommendation that women should get a bone scan at age 30 as a baseline, since bone loss can start that early.
She replied that she agrees with that recommendation, but with [...]

Green Mountain Daily has a post this morning about the upcoming health care reform battles.  It, of course, misrepresents the opposition to the “public option” because how else can the left win a debate on any issue other than mischaracterizing the opposition?  (You’ve gotta give them credit for being proactive, though.)
A “public option” would be [...]

It seems like everyday I wake up in backward world.  Up is down.  Down is up.  People who pay their bills on time and spend within their means are the bad guys, and people who don’t are the victims.  And it’s the government’s job to rescue people from their own financial screw-ups.
First, we have the [...]

When I saw the headline on my news feed, I thought, this must be FOX News.  But, no, it was the AP.
FACT CHECK: Obama’s job, deficit claims are iffy
Could it be that the ban on reporting anything that might cast the president in a negative light has been lifted and the media is finally going [...]

So, Arlen Specter is now officially a Democrat.  Big deal.  I have been reading the polls for weeks showing that he was losing heartily against his conservative primary challenger.  This is not really surprising.
What is surprising, although I guess it shouldn’t be, is that everyone is saying this is bad for the Republican Party because [...]

Conservatives and libertarians around the country have been organizing protests against the government bailouts and stimulus plans – and mounting trillion dollar debt obligations – called “Tea Parties,” in homage to the Boston Tea Party.  The mainstream media is for the most part not covering them.
There are tea parties planned all over the US for [...]

I am not trying to be snarky; this is pretty serious.  There is a reason that experience matters.
Allies of Mr Obama say his weary appearance in the Oval Office with Mr Brown illustrates the strain he is now under, and the president’s surprise at the sheer volume of business that crosses his desk.
What exactly did [...]

Here’s the “targeted, timely, and temporary” stimulus proposal President Obama said he wanted.  And it was proposed by a Democrat, not a Republican.
[The] START plan is a $170 billion “bare bones” pure stimulus approach that would put $100 billion immediately into the pockets of low- and middle-income Americans, then use the other $70 billion for [...]

Politically, things are not going my way and that’s tough to swallow.  The Democratic Party has un-checked power and with it they are undoing every good thing done by the government in my entire adult life.  On top of that, they are sticking the hand of government into every last corner of our lives.  As [...]

I have seen this video all over the blogosphere this afternoon of some guy named Julio, who asked President Obama a question at his town meeting today in Ft. Myers.

I just cannot believe that this guy is for real.  I think this has to be some kind of prankster.  It seems too over the top, [...]
