Catch You Later

As our family business grows, the time available for OnCenter posts constricts. The month of June has been especially busy for us, hence the long lag between posts.

During my hiatus, I've been watching domestic and world politics carefully, as I always do.

There have been some moderately surprising domestic developments—e.g., the sea change in public sentiment and acceptance (think: millions and millions of rainbow flags) of same-sex marriage in light of the Supreme court decision that affirms that right (a very good thing). The Supreme Court also decided not to insert itself into the Obamacare debate (a proper decision). The disaster that is Obamacare must be remedied by a change in leadership and legislative action, not a court ruling. The courage of GOP Governor Nikki Haley in removing an offensive confederate flag from the South Carolina state capital (a good decision). At the same time, the media predictably continues its largely biased coverage of GOP presidential candidates, playing gotcha at every opportunity while giving Hillary, along with socialist Bernie Sanders, softball questions or none at all. The continuing scandals of the Obama administration go unreported, even as more evidence mounts of serious—even criminal—wrongdoing.

There have also been many predictable and troubling developments overseas—e.g., (1) the collapse of the Greek socialist model (Predicted here on numerous occasions) and the chaos it will propagate in Europe and around the world; (2) the continuing capitulation and weakness of the Obama administration in the Iran talks (now delayed once again); (3) the growth and spread of radical Islam (ISIS) and the growing number of barbaric terrorist attacks throughout the Middle East and Europe (while this president and his Team of 2s, along with a largely complicit media try desperately to change the subject).

There's a lot to talk about, but little time (for me) to do so at the moment. I'll catch you later.
