‘Tis the Season (Townhall.com) December 20, 2010Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.
Tis the season—not to be jolly, but to battle to remove Christmas from its place in public life. Sadly, the so-called “war on Christmas” is upon us again.
· Christmas Village in Philadelphia became Holiday Village this year;
· A ferry terminal in NY removed its nativity scene;
· Chase bank in Texas took down the Christmas tree in its lobby;
· And the Lincoln Tunnel in NY features a billboard with a nativity scene, but the words are “You know it’s a myth, this season celebrate reason.”
Sure it’s a free country and you can say that if you wish. But the idea that we should respect every point of view but a Christian one gets it all wrong.
Pushing God and Christmas out of American public life is a political and secular agenda, not a Constitutional one.
Healthcare Reform Unconstitutional (Townhall.com) December 16, 2010Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.

Finally! A federal judge, Henry Hudson of Virginia, said what a lot of us
have been thinking: a key provision of the healthcare reform law is unconstitutional.
Judge Hudson rightly said that the Commerce Clause does not give Congress power to make people to enter into a private contract. So the mandate to buy health insurance is unconstitutional.
Now on toward the Supreme Court, since two other federal judges have ruled that it is constitutional. And more lawsuits are out there—25 of them.
Not only is the law unconstitutional, but it has become unpopular as well. A new poll shows Americans oppose the law now 52-43.
With a new Republican majority in the House, new governors in statehouses, and judges reconsidering the matter, the battle for healthcare reform isn’t over yet!
