From Dr. Lee Hieb: How To Stop Ebola 1

A Message from our sponsor and Candidate for Governor:  Dr. Lee Hieb: I strongly object to using the National Guard in Africa for a number of reasons.  First, it is  always bad to send troops into harm’s way for nebulous strategic purposes.  In this case I have not heard an overarching strategic plan, a tactical […]

Obola – The Ebola Epidemic -The Doc N Lefty Radio Show

Obola – The Ebola Epidemic President Obama’s response to the Ebola pandemic is very telling about his entire Presidency.  Or maybe the media’s love affair.  Or both. First, there was H1N1.  This is the flu of 1917-1918.  It reared its ugly head in 2009, just a little bit after Obama assumed office.  The outcry over […]


The Problem with Ice Buckets

The Problem with Ice Buckets By now, just about everyone has heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  It’s a great fund raising idea, and who doesn’t want to help eliminate ALS?  I mean, it affects millions of Americans, has been a plague on humanity since at least Lou Gehrig had it, and who doesn’t […]

What Job Numbers Surging REALLY Means 1

Job numbers “surging” and what that really means. I read with interest across the NFM how the jobs numbers were surging, and that more people were entering the workforce and more employers were offering jobs.  Of course, Obama was given much of the credit.  And it’s good that jobs are available.   However, every month […]


Same-Sex Marriage: The Conservative Struggle Isn’t What You Think…

    A thought occurred to me as I listened, recently, to a gentleman speak about his opposition to marriage equality.  There was nothing unique or novel about his arguments; I had heard them all before.  He spoke of the devaluation of the institution of marriage, the harm to children raised in same sex homes, […]

Iowa: A State of Poor Mental Health

Iowa: A State of Poor Mental Health   The Register had an article this week decrying the lack of mental health services in Iowa in general, and Des Moines in particular.  Mercy has decided to shutter its outpatient clinics for adult mental health, leaving 8000 patients without a provider.  Some of Mercy’s providers have retired, some went elsewhere, and some started […]

Obama: Give Me Liberty or….Give Me Space

Give me Liberty, or Give me Space…   In 2012, President Obama was caught in a live mic gaffe with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev stating, “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved – but it’s important for him to give me space.”  At the time, Obama was under pressure at […]


Leftys & Obamacare: Liars or Just Plain Dumb?

Leftys: Liars or Just Plain Dumb? When looking at Liberal policies and platforms, I am always struck by the lack of real world common sense said policies are based.  First, let’s take Obamacare, a favorite target of mine. Using the Left’s numbers of uninsured, 48 million, we can easily see that 8 million people signing […]

  We ARE Cliven Bundy.  And his Ranch.  “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”   There’s a reason the Founding Fathers put the 2nd Amendment in the US Constitution.  And that reason can be summed […]
