To the embarrassment of the Obama administration it was revealed today that Children with preexisting conditions are not covered in the great Obama Legislation passed signed on Monday. All of the geniuses’ in Obama’s administration and the Congress missed the fact that “The Children” who were the reason we had to pass it were not covered!
I am not writing this just to make fun of the best and the brightest but to give the Republicans in the Senate something to think of tomorrow and the next day when they are …

From Bill Baar

Giannoulias’s facebook page focusing on Kirk’s opposition to Obama Care with things like this,
A divide over the nation’s health care overhaul is heating up the race for President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat.
Democratic Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias (jeh-NOO’-lee-ehs) is criticizing his Republican opponent for opposing the national health care overhaul.
The Illinois treasurer made a stop Wednesday in Congressman Mark Kirk’s district.
So since it was a bipartisan vote against the Health Care Takeover, is Giannoulias going to support Rep. Lipinski’s …

Why I’m for Jack Roeser.
People acquainted with the both of us…Jack and I…know that we’ve had our ups and downs over some aspects of politics—but never over principle. Since our first encounter Jack and I made up…then we had another bout of disagreements and made up again…vowing never to disagree—then we did and have had a great time with the controversies we have engendered.

I don’t have to tell you that Jack and I aren’t related even though we have the same surname. Jack’s paternal people come from Luxembourg which has …

The widely publicized and devastating crack made by multi-millionaire Democrat (the press calls her a “millionaire” but in Lake Forest they’re dime a dozen) State Sen. Susan Garrett yesterday that Pat Quinn hasn’t cut enough budget to warrant asking for a tax increase should…if Quinn is sane…warrant her being dropped from consideration as lieutenant governor. If not and Quinn goes ahead and picks her, he will have himself to blame if he gets a Democratic version of Betsy McCaughey (pronounced “Mc-Coy”).

McCaughey was a fresh-faced, brilliant young thing when she …

The President is a man of principle. The WaPo reports:
Obama said he told House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) that his core goals — lowering health-care costs for businesses and individuals and expanding coverage to the uninsured — remained non-negotiable.

So what better way to increase productivity and lower costs than to add 111 new boards and commissionsto the slick infrastructure of health care provision in the US?
1. Retiree Reserve Trust Fund (Section 111(d), p. 61)
2. Grant program for wellness programs to small employers (Section 112, p. 62)
3. Grant program for State health …

Our Parish, like most in in the Archdiocese of Chicago, reads off a list of pro-forma petitions, the Prayer of the Faithful, a sort of laundry list of requests for topical prayers. Many of these (in Chicago) are somewhere between benign and unexplainable (harmony and peace come up a lot); others read like plants from David Axelrod and ASK Communications (we prayed for Hope and Change 2 days before the 2008 Democratic Primary). This past Sunday’s petitions included a shout out for Haiti and Chile earthquake victims and the off …

At long last, Chicago has extended its arm twisting ways to the U. S. House of Representatives. President Barack Obama, his Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, and advisor and strategist, David Axelrod, have reduced the people’s house to the status of the Chicago City Council. The only key difference is the vast scope of the swindle perpetrated in the name of the public welfare. Michigan Representative Bart Stupak has sold his vote for a scrap of paper as enduring as that waved by Neville Chamberlain upon his return from Munich.

The …

This morning, some dour faces around the office can be understood. NCAA basketball brackets and many people’s view of the US as a safe place for free markets and free people lay in tatters. NCAA March Madness brackets have been blown up and health care passed.

Cornell is the first Ivy League team to reach the Sweet 16 since 1979. Kansas, the number one seed in the tournament is out. And, lower-seeded teams won 16 games during the first two rounds (33%).
On the political front, despite an overwhelming …

The Board of Directors for the Illinois Catholic Prayer Breakfast announced today that they have rescinded their invitation to Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak to serve as the keynote speaker at the annual event scheduled for April 30 in downtown Chicago.

The unanimous decision by the Board was made as a result of Rep. Stupak’s decision to vote in favor of the pro-abortion health care legislation opposed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
Rep. Stupak agreed to vote for the legislation after receiving a promise from President Obama to sign …

They’ll Rue the Day: March 21.
Thus far the strategy of ex-con radical Bob Creamer…the Marxist movement’s latter day Che Guevara…has proved out: but March 21, 2010, the day ObamaCare passed the House 220-211 will prove to be the day that sends the vestige of movement-led liberal Marxism to national exile for decades. March 21, 2010: That was the day the Democratic Party of Jefferson-Jackson and Roosevelt, a major political party, dropped the façade and became a Far Left “the 21st of March” movement. Quite frankly the Democrats are a …
