Tom Coburn Will Be Missed By Conservatives

This is Sen. Tom Coburn’s last year in the Senate. It would have been his last term anyway, because he’s an honorable man and adheres to his term limits promise.

He first ran for the congressional seat held by a buddy of mine from college: Mike Synar. I would not have supported Coburn because at that time I was a deluded Democrat. Fortunately I changed and he didn’t.

Complete details are in my latest Newsmax Insider column, link below.

Remember you don’t have to fall in love with the column to post a link on your Facebook page, like it or tweet about it. I can use the readers and Newsmax doesn’t make it easy to find me.

(Sometimes I’m just happy if readers don’t want to enter Ebola quarantine after finishing it.)

Federal Bureaucrats Misbehave & Taxpayers Are Punished

Thousands of federal bureaucrats are home every day during working hours. They surf the web — although presumably not this column — shop, nap, drink or look for Lois Lerner’s lost email, all while collecting their paycheck at our expense.

It’s a continuing scandal and I have details in my Newsmax column, link below.

Incidentally, my column has been moved and I think it’s harder for the casual reader to find me. So I would ask that if you like the column please post a link on your Facebook page or send a tweet or tell people it contains the cure for Ebola. Anything to boost readership.

Thanks.

Doctors Bury Their Mistakes, Politicians Bury Taxpayers

Obamacare is a typical Democrat, Big Government program: It expands the scope of government, it’s expensive, it’s built on a foundation of lies and it does the exact opposite of what it promised.

A Republican takeover of the Senate this year is our only hope of stopping the hilariously named ACA in it’s tracks.

USPS – Delivering Deficit Spending Since 2006

The last time I was really impressed with the United States Postal Service management they hired Lance Armstrong to be the USPS spokesman and we all know how that turned out.

If they had wanted a heart–warming individual with a life–changing story they should have taught Jared to ride a bike.

Now, in an effort to generate some revenue in an area where the post office allegedly has some competence, management wants to offer home grocery delivery. Hilarity ensues.

Read it all in my Newsmax.com Insider column:
