Vacation Time!

Taking it easy1

It is August by the time you read this.  We at The Right Commentary are taking time off for some rest and relaxation just as our beloved Congress does and how our beloved president does every other week.  Hey, why lead a nation when you can go play golf, right?  So, some much needed time off is in order for all involved here.  Our time off is undetermined at this time.  We may take two weeks or the entire month of August.  Recharging of the batteries prior to the final push toward the mid-term elections of this year are in order.  The Senate is still up for grabs.  Obama plans on usurping power from Congress and, once again, establishing law, and not enforcing laws he doesn't like. Such is the quandary we find ourselves in these days.  Regardless, I encourage all readers to partake of previous political posts here.  If you have comments or questions, you can comment on each post or send us email from the contact tab at the top of this page.  We can't promise we'll get back to you right away.  But, as soon as feasible, you will get a reply. Until next time...keep the faith!!!

A Nation In Chaos

I've lived a long time.  I'll be 63 years old in September.  I've seen the United States of America reel from the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy.  I've seen President Nixon resign from office in disgrace.  I've seen Democrats, Republicans, right-wingers, left-wingers attack each other mercilessly.  I've lived through several recessions.  I've seen economic upheaval that threatened the very fabric of our nation.  I've seen this nation at war several times and the aftermath of war.  In summary, I have seen this nation get knocked down and then get back up.  The terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 which served to only bring this nation together as one.  America always comes together in a time of great need.  At least, that's the way it has always been in the past.

Fatal Blow For Obamacare?

A federal appeals court delivered a serious blow to President Barack Obama's health care law Tuesday, potentially denying billions of dollars in subsidies for many low and middle-income people who bought policies. Without these subsidies, it is unlikely these people can pay their Obamacare premiums each month.  Before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, a group of small business owners argued that the law authorizes subsidies only for people who buy insurance through markets established by the states and not by the federal government.

The Impeachment of President Obama

I've been all over the spectrum on the possible impeachment of President Obama.  A case could be made for abuse of power.  Now, it may be true he has not had as many executive orders issued as President George W. Bush.  But, in Obama's case, he has changed law (his own health care policy) to establishing law (Deferred Action for Dreamers) to not enforcing the law (Immigration Enforcement Act of 1986) already on the books.  He swore an oath to uphold and enforce the laws of the land.  He did not swear an oath to uphold the laws he likes.  He swore an oath to uphold THE laws (U.S. Constitution) of the nation.  There are not "ifs, buts, or whats" in that oath.  Let's take a quick look at the oath President Obama took:
