Tell Kasich to Stop Expansion of Government Healthcare

Dear Governor Kasich, 
We the undersigned residents of Ohio stand firmly and strongly against the expansion of Medicaid in Ohio under the Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
In the current structure, Medicaid spending in Ohio is already an unsustainable fiscal liability to our state.  The fiscal liability of expanding Medicaid in Ohio will compound this burden and will quickly outgrow any promised funds from the Federal Government.  
Any expansion of Medicaid in Ohio will further increase the financial burden for future generations of Ohio residents. 
We strongly believe that continuing the proposed expansion of Medicaid is not only fiscally irresponsible, but does not solve the issue of quality, affordable care through a balanced free market approach. 
Please be advised that the undersigned Ohio residents will remain engaged and active in the legislative process to do our part to stop any expansion of Medicaid in Ohio under, or in conjunction with, the Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. 
We request that you please reconsider your proposed expansion of Medicaid so we can all concentrate our efforts in moving our state forward rather than saddling us with further financially unsustainable entitlements.

The shrinking (?) still stinking (!) Federal deficit

This morning, I read an article, “Everybody Listen Up! The Deficit Is Actually Shrinking, Despite Beltway Propaganda, 94 percent of Americans don't know the deficit is falling,” on to see what the other side (Left-wing) is saying about the economy, the deficit, etc.

Below is my response to that very leftward slanted article. It is interesting that the article mentions nothing about the deficits prior to 2009.  Prior to that year deficits were much smaller. The article talks about “beltway propaganda,” when the article itself is deceitful socialist, Keynesian propaganda.

The trillion-dollar deficit may be shrinking, but we still have a major spending problem, which you, Mr. Johnson (the article’s author), seem to overlook!

NYT, 10/12/2012 : "The federal deficit fell to $1.1 trillion in the 2012 fiscal year, down from about $1.3 trillion a year earlier...That is the smallest deficit since 2008 but represents the fourth year in a row that the deficit has exceeded $1 trillion."

The Federal Debt, the accumulation of all those “shrinking Deficits” total to the tune of nearly $17 TRILLION DOLLARS and growing... Now that is just the tip of the iceberg. Medicare and Medicaid entitlements are adding to the future economic catastrophe.

We are borrowing more than $.40 on the dollar from China and others to feed our spending addiction. Houston, we have a problem if we think we can live with trillion dollar deficits.

We need to get to a balanced budget sooner, rather than later. But Obama and the Democrats and many Republicans won't even consider that. We need to live within our means, beginning NOW. Any talk of acceptable deficit levels is pure bunk. Washington, GOP and Dems refuse to deal with reality and refuse to acknowledge their spending ADDICTION, which as bad as that of any heroin or cocaine addict.

What you write, Mr. Johnson, is Leftist, keep the status quo, keep-kicking-the-can-down-the-road PROPAGANDA, which you accuse others of doing...

Finally, the sequester must happen. It is not really a spending cut; it is merely a reduction in the rate of spending.

The solution is simple. Demand Congress and the President come up with a BUDGET (which Harry Reid and the Democrat-controlled Congress have refused to do for the past four years) where expenditures equal or are less than revenues. That is what households must do. That is what businesses must do... That is what Americans (with the exception of the many low information voters) expect their government to do, live within its means. Is that so radical?

One poster replied to what I had written:

“Far too many who remain deficit hawks despite the evidence that proves their position false have absolutely no clue how macro-economics works. Everything they understand is based on their perceptions of their own household economics and totally not applicable to a large central federal government…”

I offered in part, the following rebuttal:

…I disagree with your premise that "Our national debt is NOT the same as your household debt..." A budget is a spending plan that you decide upon. It is based on how much you make in income and what your monthly expenses are. And Debt is an amount owed to a person or organization for funds borrowed.

Households, businesses, governments to be successful must create and be guided by a sound financial guideline, which a budget is. Without a clear budget,  households, businesses, governments would flounder, which many do. Simply no entity will long survive if it continues to spend more than its income, revenue, taxes (Deficits, Debt) ... It is basic accounting or economics for all entities.

I like the following explanation found at

"It's like a family that earns $60,000 per year, but is spending $100,000. How are they doing it? By getting a new $40,000 loan every year to cover the difference," said Brian Riedl, a budget expert with the conservative Heritage Foundation." Just add 10 zeros after those numbers and you have a idea of the size of our government... We must stop this insane level of spending and borrowing or we will face real economic collapse...

President Obama’s Sequestration Question

President Oblama's Sequestration is just another 'Manufactured Crisis' scare tactic designed to absolve him and his regime of the responsibility of seriously  prioritizing spending, which he will not or cannot do... and to avoid ANY reduction in the size and scope of his over-bloated spending-addicted government!

Mr. Obama is following in the shallow footsteps of the zombie-like Senator Harry Reid when it comes to budgeting. Senator Reid deftly avoids dealing with prioritizing any spending by just not offering any budget for the past four or so years.

The Democrats have been too busy to deal with the economy, budgets and alike. They have been laser-focused on

·         enhancing the revenue (taxing, taxing, taxing)

·         spending, spending, spending like there is no tomorrow,

·         expanding funding of abortion through ObamaCare,

·         funding pie-in-the-sky windmills, solar dreams and schemes,

·         appropriating rights from American citizens,

·         promoting the Homosexual Agenda, and

·         running Fast and Furious from the scandalous BenghaziGate.

All along touting the philosophy now made famous by the other Clinton, the former ‘standout’ world traipsing and travailing Secretary of State, “What Difference Does It Make, At This Point?”

Oblamea, a poster on the Politics Forum, in response to my post there, pointed out that on Fact Checker - Obama’s fanciful claim that Congress ‘proposed’ the sequester - Four Pinocchios ★★★★

Keystone XL and God's Kingdom

The following is my response to an article in the Leftist website, “Did John Kerry Send a Signal on Keystone XL Decision? Was Kerry's first major address as Secretary of State a clue -- or just wishful thinking?

I must admit, I am a denier of man-caused climate change. I am a truth seeker. I lack the faith to believe that carbon dioxide is bad for the planet. It is extremely important for plant life.

Climate change is primarily a natural phenomenon. 
If anyone can interfere with or transcend nature, it is God, and exclusively God. Weather can be His judgment on a rebellious people who choose to violate His principles and precepts. Our topsy turvy weather patterns of late could be attributed, not to man-made global warming (hoax), but to God’s deliberate interjection into the working of nature.

Could He be trying to get our attention? He certainly must be displeased with the action and direction of leadership and of many of the people of this nation are going – namely embracing, condoning and promoting abortion, homosexuality, and purging our culture of all things sacred. He cannot be pleased with this cultural corruption.

The God of the Judeo-Christian scriptures is both a loving and a just God, in contrast to the wrathful god of the Koran. He cannot and will not tolerate sin forever. At some point He will act. Yes, He wants all people to come to a saving knowledge of Him through His Son, Jesus. But that is their choice. However, He will ultimately judge all men and women as to what they have done with this knowledge. His concern is more for the souls, the spiritual destiny, of men and women than it is for the future of this planet. That does not mean we should misuse or abuse this planet. But it means the priority is people not things…

The whole environmental movement is primarily a socialist attempt to gain further control over people of America. I believe in conservation, but not at the expense of people (or jobs, or remaining dependent on increasingly radical Islamist nations).

To the radical environmentalists including John Kerry, Barack Obama, and most of the President’s administration the planet is more important than the people. They can’t admit that, but their actions, regulations suggest that they honor and worship nature, the creation, more than the Creator.

Why is birth control a ‘right’ but birth is not?

"Why is birth control a 'right' but birth is not?" This was a question asked by @WretchedManIam on twitter this morning. This is such an amazingly simple, yet profound question.
Birth control is not a ‘right.’ It is a choice made by an individual. The choice is governed by the person’s moral compass, his/her conscience. Some people’s conscience is dead.
On the other hand, every American, born or pre-born, has a right to life. This is stated clearly in our Declaration of Independence. The Supreme Court misinterpreted the Constitution when it issued its fatal and wrong decision in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.
Abortion in 99% of the cases is unnecessary and wrong. It snuffs out the life of a developing human being. Allowing abortion in America is an on-going atrocity, a travesty of justice. It is immoral. It is nothing by destructive to the individuals involved, the mother and baby, and to society as a whole.

To Educate or Indoctrinate, Right versus Left.

Post updated at 10:45 2/23/2013

I read another article on the leftist website, It was titled, How the Religious Right Is Helping De-Educate America's Youth, The bogus "school reform" movement isn't just about union-busting.” I like to see how the other side, the enemy of Christ and the enemy of American values, thinks. The article articulates the leftist philosophy and perspective quite well. It helps us to understand the hatred the Left has for Christians, Christ, and Christianity.

I made the following comments to the article and I reproduce them here:

Your use of the phrase, “Religiously conservative people, motivated by their perceived degradation of society,” needs to be addressed.

First, why can’t you say “Christian” or “Christian conservatives” or “persons possessing a biblical viewpoint” instead of “religiously conservative”? Are those ideas like the cross or the word “Jesus” to Satan or a demon?

Second, there is no “perceived” degradation at all. There is only ACTUAL degradation of our culture and our society. Since the 1960s we have been experiencing an incremental corruption of our culture. Removal of God, the Bible, and Prayer from our SCHOOLS and the substitution and proliferation of the secular humanistic philosophy has been destructive. It has produced a generation of moral relativists and low information voters who cannot recognize good or evil in their leaders, political and otherwise. ABORTION involves the murder of innocent boys and girls. HOMOSEXUALITY should not be celebrated; it should be condemned as anathema. The effect of VIOLENCE in movies and video games is condoned, tolerated, or minimized, while "guns" are primarily blamed for mass murders in recent times.

Your association of the “the Biblically driven” with “often racist,” is vitriolic and without justification. Who is racist when the abortion rate among minorities is significantly higher than non-minorities? Who is racist when the Left including the President and Democratic Party refuse to allow parents of minority students to use vouchers to send their children to non-governmental schools such as occurred in Washington, D.C.? Who is racist when teacher union appeasement takes precedence over providing children with an optimal education opportunity?

You said, “Challenging the historical mandate to provide a religion-neutral public education by insuring that the Bible become part of high school curricula.” For one thing, today’s education is infected by the Secular Humanist religion throughout. For another thing, the bible was THE textbook of early America. And, until the last 50 years or so, Prayer was permitted in our schools. So who is being revisionist?

Finally, you close your article with the statement, “is critical that Americans recognize not only the intent to privatize our schools but the vast Christian Right agenda behind it.” If the “vast Christian Right agenda” includes allowing parents the choice in where they can educate their children FREE FROM the indoctrination and propagandizing of an amoral secular humanists philosophy, moral relativism, political correctness nonsense, revisionist American history and directing taxpayer dollars in a way that aligns with parental ideals, values. Then, what is so fearsome, so wrong with that?

Here is one response to my comment from  Amy Butler wrote, “Religiously conservative is the correct term because there is really no difference in behavior or desire between religiously conservative Christians and religiously conservative Muslims--both want to control the laws, the people, and the thoughts of the countries where they are the majority. Neither has any tolerance for any individual thought or belief, and both pretend they are being assaulted by those who disagree with them.”

To lump orthodox, true Islam and orthodox, true Christianity together is absolutely wrong. There is a world of difference between the two. One is false and one is true. Though they my share some beliefs like the adultery and homosexual are immoral. How they deal with them is very different. For example, true Islam calls for the death penalty. Christianity calls for confession of sin and requesting forgiveness. Big difference...

Islam is a political, militaristic, and 'religious' ideology bent on subjugating the world to its perverse tenants. The core tenants were 'revealed' through one so-called prophet, who actually revised the Jewish scripture to fit his personal philosophy. He created a impersonal god who is devoid of love. Islam does not tolerate other religions or those that do not adhere to it. In fact, in many Muslim countries they will actually torture or kill those who would dare convert to Christianity or in any way reject Islam, blaspheme allah or his prophet. True Islam, as practiced by fundamentalists in Iran, Saudi Arabia, etc offers no choice, it only demands.

Whereas Christianity centers around a offering mankind a saving personal relationship with an eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, triune God. Christian is based on the Judeo-Christian scriptures, which have been revealed and inspired by God through various authors in a unified, consistent message from God to mankind. Christianity tolerates and loves unbelievers. By tolerance it does not mean embracing the religion or philosophy of others, it means acknowledging other beliefs but not accepting or concurring or demanding allegiance or adherence. True Christianity offers people a choice to believe or not to believe. It does not force itself on people.

Rob Portman Votes for Sexual Orientation Based Hate Crimes Legislation

In section 3 of S.47, 113th Congress, ‘‘underserved populations” is defined as “populations who face barriers in accessing and using victim services, and includes populations underserved because of…sexual orientation, gender identity...

In section 120 of this bill it says, ‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—Of the amounts appropriated under the grant programs identified in paragraph (2), the Attorney General shall take 2 percent of such appropriated amounts and combine them to award grants to eligible entities described in subsection (b) of this section to develop and implement outreach strategies targeted at adult or youth victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking in underserved populations and to provide victim services to meet the needs of adult and youth victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking in underserved populations…PLANNING GRANTS.—The Attorney General may use up to 25 percent of funds available under this section to make one-time planning grants to eligible entities to support the planning and development of specially designed and targeted programs for adult and youth victims in one or more underserved populations

In other words, this bill would require the government to spend more taxpayer’s money to protect people just because of their sexual orientation.  And the Republican U.S. Senator from Ohio, Rob Portman, voted for it.

Late Night Takes: Tiger, Obama, and the Economy


The Tonight Show With Jay Leno
  • Over the weekend, President Obama played golf with Tiger Woods. Tiger said the president was a very good golfer for a guy who plays only five days a week.
  • Actually, you know what the president's handicap is? He doesn't understand economics.
  • Actually, Tiger Woods gave the president some very valuable tips. The most valuable one? Erase all of your text messages.
These jokes are courtesy of which periodically sends out an email compilation of late night jokes, few of which are worth repeating . . . these were the exceptions.

Pure Blasphemy! NBC’s SNL skit has Jesus on murderous rampage

This pretend movie trailer is not in the least way funny. It is, frankly, sick. It is pure adulterated blasphemy of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Savior of mankind.

For allowing Saturday Night Live (SNL) to sink to the bottom of the sewage pond with this so-called skit, it has earned the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) a new moniker. The network should henceforth be known as the 'NOTHING BUT CORRUPTION' network.

Apparently this trailer was supposed to be a parody of the Quentin Tarantino’s films. If anything maybe SNL should go after one of the real cause of ‘Gun Violence’ these despicably violent films produced by such evil-minded Hollywood directors such as Mr. Tarantino.

This is trailer is trash, it’s inexcusable. Thanks to the tone set by our Dear Leader, I guess it is always open season to mock, marginalize, and ridicule Christ, Christianity, and Christ-followers.

It is obvious that cowardly leftists fear the revengeful Islamists and dare not poke fun at them.  They obviously do not fear God, who will not be mocked.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” – Galatians 6:7 NASB

By the way, which 'religion' is truly the religion of peace? What would Mohammed or his ‘true believers’ do if he or their ‘religion’ was mocked in the same way SNL mocked Jesus? They would take swift revenge, that’s what. Unlike the admonition Christ prescribes to His followers:

"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.” – Matthew 5:11 NASB

Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord.” – Romans 12:19 NASB

That should send shivers through those given to mockery of the true Messiah, if not now, then when they face the King on Judgment Day!

The 24 most loathsome people in America, really?

I try to read, from time to time, what the other side (the radical left) is saying. This morning I read with interest this Ian Murphy articleThe Most Loathsome People in America: The Double Dirty Dozen,” at

I had to comment:

Barack Chamberlain ?
You left off these champions of corruption, cover-up ... These are representative of the many less than loving, less than lovable in the government and media who could qualify for your list,  Mr. Murphy ...

President Barack Obama was already mentioned. Like Neville Chamberlain, Mr. Obama goes out of his way to appease our enemies, the Islamists even including them in his government...

Eric Holder (Attorney General, Department of gross inJustice) for his part in gun-running Fast and Furious, the failed attempt to smear guns and gun owners by allowing guns to be sold to serious bad guys who would "prove" how bad guns were; for his racism in ignoring the New Black Panther Party intimidation of voters in Philly in 2008; for not enforcing immigration laws, (not defending) the Defense of Marriage Act. etc.

Hillary Clinton for her part in BenghaziGate. What Difference Does It Make How the four Americans were killed ... I just want to be the next president ...

CNN's propagandist Piers Morgan's ( leadership in the) crusade to vilify guns and gun owners six ways to Sunday using every 'weapon' in his leftist arsenal.

Those four people that I mention could easily be in positions 1 through 4 on Mr. Murphy's list or any list of the most repugnant persons in America.

Look, Who Wants to Homosexualize the Boy Scouts?

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) represent what is good about America and it tries to instill many values that boys need in our increasingly corrupt culture.  

Our schools, from elementary through college, have been infected with an anti-God, anti-Christian, pro-Secular Humanistic philosophy.  The entertainment industry glamorizes immorality. Pornography is big business, corrupting our youth and adults. Our churches are abandoning biblical principles left and right. Now BSA is being bombarded from within with a desire compromise its values and accept the unacceptable.

The BSA is one the last vestiges of principled, decency, and morality in America. Powerful and financially influential BSA Executive Board members and bullies John Turley (CEO of major accounting firm Ernst and Ernst) and Randall Stephenson (CEO of AT&T) are pushing for inclusion of homosexuals in Scouting. They essentially are urging the compromise of the basic mission and values of the organization.

Why is change in membership being considered? These prominent corporate leaders are being politically correct. They are unwilling to confront the insidious efforts of the homosexual lobby (Big Gay) to spread their evil agenda to every corner of this society, including their own organizations.

What about the boys? What harm will allowing homosexuals to assume leadership roles do to the boys? No one seems to care about the boys. I will tell you, homosexuals will use their influence and presence to convince boys that homosexual behavior and lifestyle is normal, natural, healthy, moral, and even that is unchangeable in nature.

Truth be told, homosexuality is primarily a behavioral choice, it is not genetic. A person may have tendencies to be attracted to the opposite sex, however, this can be overcome as other urges can be overcome or controlled. 

Essentially, homosexuality is abnormal, unnatural, unhealthy, and immoral behavior. It is antithetical to biblical principles. God disapproves of it. Scouts need to know the truth. Homosexuals will not provide them with truth. This is not a matter of so-called diversity or tolerance. It is okay to believe the truth about homosexuality.  But the homosexual advocates will not tolerate another view. They must have their way. They are relentless, they are intolerant.


Let the Boy Scouts of America know that you disapprove of their changing leadership or membership criteria. I sent the following email today to the Boy Scouts:



Dear Mr. Brock –

I sincerely hope that the BSA do not cave into the demands of the homosexual lobby and change in any way membership or leadership requirements regarding homosexual males membership or leadership in your organization.

Our culture is crumbling and I see the BSA as needing to hold the ground of traditional and moral values. Please don't let corporate pressure and the pressure from homosexuals sway your principled position.

Allowing homosexuals in Scouting has destroyed the scouts in Canada, and will do the same if permitted in the United States.

Should you not change your position, I will strongly consider supporting your organization...I think many other individuals and organizations would do the same to counter those homosexual influenced people and companies coercing you to change, threatening to remove their funding. There are some things more important than money.

I urge the removal of the board members who are calling for this change, namely Jim Turley and Randall Stephenson You may lose some financial contributions in the short-term, but is it worth compromising your mission? Is it worth putting many young people in harm’s way?


If you agree I urge you to sign the petition and call or email Mr. Brock and express your concern.

Here is a YouTube video, Don't Homosexualize the Boy Scouts, which offers some additional information why the BSA should not change their policy regarding homosexuality.

In Sen. Menendez's (D-NJ) case, the D stands for deviant

Hat tip goes to Ben Crystal of The Great Eight YouTube video. The following is from one of the segments:

"Democrat Senator Bob Menendez is sinking deeper into his scandal involving underage Dominican prostitutes this week..."

... Menendez (D for Deviant) took the stage to demand amnesty for illegal immigrants (aliens) because it would save on air fare.

"Asked why they allowed Menendez to speak, amnesty supporters said that they needed someone to pimp the plan, who knows more about pimps than Bob..."

The segment about Menendez starts at around the 46 seconds mark

If Microbes on Mars Indicate Life There...


If microbes on Mars means there is life on that planet, then  why are developing human babies in their mother’s womb considered a minor inconvenience? This is a precise example of illogical liberal lunacy.
