If each of us can flip just one voter to our side we can double the power of our vote on election day. Wait! Don't start rolling your eyes and typing a comment about the impossibility of changing the mind of a liberal or about feeling fed up with anyone who is in the squishy middle. I used to be a liberal. And a very far-left-leaning one, at that. But like countless others out there, I woke up and began a journey that has led me to conservatism. I am proof positive that minds can be changed. The question I often ask myself is how to inspire this kind of transition in others. Why do some people change while others don't? Does it take a major event to jolt them awake? Do some start a slow but steady evolution in their thinking sparked by a tiny seed? There's probably no single template for how a shift in thinking occurs. But the point is, it does occur.

'Pizza Tax' Only a Hint of Obamacare's Costs - Heritage Foundation - Papa John’s Pizza founder John Schnatter spurred new outrage over Obamacare when he said recently that the law will hike pizza prices. But his business isn’t the only one that will have to pass its new costs on to consumers—or cut back, which will mean even fewer jobs. At least 60 percent of firms are estimating Obamacare will raise their health care costs, according to a new study released Wednesday by Mercer, a human resources consulting firm. One-third of those expect a cost increase of 5 percent or more. The study reports: The employers that will be hit hardest are those with large part-time populations—employers in retail and hospitality services. Nearly half of these employers (46%) expect PPACA will push up cost by at least 3% in 2014—and another third don’t yet know what the impact will be.  Read more........

Obamacare Mandate Sterilizes 15 Year Old Girls for Free - Without Parental Consent - CNS News - Thanks to an Obamacare regulation that took effect on Aug. 1, health care plans in Oregon will now be required to provide free sterilizations to 15- year-old girls even if the parents of those girls do not consent to the procedure.
