Do people know:
Ten years of taxation and the stealing of $716 billion from Medicare will fund Obamacare for only six years?
Number of charges, arrest and convictions for financial crimes and bank fraud under different administrations are: Bill Clinton, 1,000; George W. Bush, 1,300; Barack Obama, 0, zero, zilch, nada, none?
Solyndra (one of 12 bankrupt green energy firms that taxpayers lost billions of dollars on) in an email, referred to the Obama administration as “Bank of Washington?”
Non-legal residents and even non-residents use an ITINN number to file U.S. tax returns and file claims for the “child tax credit,” resulting in over $7 billion in fraud and the Obama administration refuses to take corrective action?
The Obama family’s solstice vacation to Hawaii last winter, complete with “his and her flights” and separate motorcades, stuck the taxpayers with a tab of more than $4 million? (Is that where Obama got idea for “We Can’t Wait” slogan?)
There are rumors of fundraisers being conducted to purchase an estimated $35 million mansion (located in the tropical paradise of Hawaii) for the Obama family to move into?
With Obama spending his post-presidential days golfing and being paid millions for speeches from his presidential library in Hawaii, could one think of a better way to further remove and distance oneself from the stark realities of historic deficit spending and historic accumulation of national debt by Obama? When the Obamas do leave the White House in January (the taxpayers fund the trip home) let’s hope they don’t take his and her flights.

Bob Dylan always has something interesting to say. Even when it’s not particularly wise or insightful. But Dylan still can contribute something instructive regarding free expression in the process.

The Wilmington Area School Board’s decision against giving non-resident teachers free student tuition was the right one.
Our Opinion: IRS seeks tougher rules for advocacy organizations
Americans have a fundamental First Amendment right to espouse and advocate their political views. But do they have a right to expect others to subsidize those views?
Our Opinion: Nation fails to take clear stand on drug’s medical use
To understand the shortcomings in putting state power ahead of federal authority, consider the matter of medical marijuana. Slowly but surely, states have been liberalizing marijuana laws. Every year, more and more states authorize the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
Our Opinion: Senate Democrats use ‘nuclear option’ and moderation is the victim
Last week’s decision by Senate Democrats to limit use of the filibuster will widen Washington’s partisan divide. Democrats argue they had good reason to end the practice of blocking votes on judicial and executive branch nominees — and they are right.
Our Opinion: The curious need to post ‘In God We Trust’
Apparently, Pennsylvania lawyers don’t have nearly enough to do. So some lawmakers want to keep them busy. That appears to be the most likely outcome of a proposed piece of legislation requiring the national motto “In God We Trust” to be posted in every school in the state.
Our Opinion: Program will give Americans more insight into their culture
The information available on the Internet is nothing short of astonishing. Of course, a fair amount of it consists of little more than trivial nonsense, celebrity gossip and a seemingly endless stream of cat videos.
