Liberals had wrestled Wisconsin taxpayers to the mat. The state faced a $3.6 Billion (with a capital “B”) deficit. They just couldn’t afford the extravagant wages and benefits enjoyed by a select group of their citizenry: unionized public employees. These union members enjoyed wages and perks that far exceeded what their counterparts in the private sector enjoyed. And yet, it was the struggling private sector that was footing the bill for the union’s prodigious bounty. What to do? … More…
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland scolded Iowa Republicans for lacking compassion. Why? Because they want to strip taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood … More…
Iowa’s Republican Governor appointed a Catholic woman to the Iowa Board of Medicine. This is a big deal. This Board influences whether telemed abortions will spread throughout Iowa to the financial benefit of Planned Parenthood. If Planned Parenthood succeeds, telemed abortions will begin spreading throughout America. The Iowa Senate, controlled by Democrats, rejected the nominee with a shameless smear campaign grounded in deceit and disinformation. Undeterred, Governor Terry Branstad has put forth the name of another faithful Catholic to serve on the Board of Medicine: Monsignor Frank Bognanno … More…
Newt Gingrich has officially suspended his campaign. This seems like a good time to rerun my piece on how a Romney administration could use his talents.

And I really don’t think it was because everyone else was doing it because honestly the people I hung out with weren’t. I have no excuse for the actions I took so I’m not going to type here and say something that is not true.
