Federal bureaucrats are at it again, interjecting themselves into affairs that should be of no concern to them. The latest overreach involves new federal guidelines which may limit the marketing to children of sugary breakfast cereals — so-called “unhealthy products.”

A prestigious Atlanta law firm hired by Republicans in the House of Representatives to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in federal court has withdrawn from the case under pressure from homosexual activist groups, prompting the resignation of one of the firm's prominent attorneys, who said he intends to go ahead with defending the law.

In the weeks following the release by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) of his budget proposal to overhaul Medicare, he and other Republicans across the country have had to contend with harsh opposition to the measure.

At 9:45 a.m. on April 27, President Obama addressed the escalating controversy over the actual location of his birth at a press briefing in the White House. At the hastily convened session, he presented the press corps with copies of a “Certificate of Live Birth,” a document issued by the Department of Health of the State of Hawaii. It contained his August 4, 1961 date of birth, the name of a doctor (David A. Sinclair?), and the names of Obama’s parents. The document was not issued by a hospital although the name and address of the “Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital” appeared in an appropriate box. 

America’s elected officials are becoming less sheepish about their blatant disregard of the voters and the Constitution. This attitude is evident in the demand of Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) (left) that President Obama decree amnesty for illegal aliens through executive order, circumventing Congress and ignoring the will of the American people.
