Three Articles Worth Reading

I couldn't agree more with this article, which puts in perspective the changes involved in the Republican effort to repeal Obamacare.  The apocalyptic rhetoric of the Democrats is, as always, unjustified, and their self-congratulation in regard to their "certain" victory in 2018 is...premature, to say the least.

This is a very interesting article about the history and present predicament of FoxNews.  Clearly, the firing of Bill O'Reilly has hit the network hard.  I'm one of many conservatives who enjoyed O'Reilly's show, and it doesn't sit well with me that he was fired based on accusations that were never litigated in a court.  He was also the target of a campaign of character assassination sponsored by leftists.  Add to that the fact that the recent Harvard study documenting media bias confirmed that FoxNews, while less egregiously anti-Trump than all other networks, is hardly singing his praises in an unqualified way, and you start to see why many conservatives are tuning out.  If you ask me, we need more than one conservative news network.  Competition is healthy!

Lastly, here is an article about Trump's new budget.  Deep cuts to social welfare programs are just what the doctor ordered, if you ask me, although I would also like to see cuts to the bloated defense budget.  Under Obama, social welfare spending increased massively, and it never contracted again once the economy was once again "healthy."  It's typical of Democrats that, once they create a new program or expand it, they will never countenance any sort of cuts.  Get over it!  We need our government to slim down, and Trump is trying to get us on that course.  Bravo!
