MILLER: Obama’s cultural legacy is legal marijuana blowing through America

Although legalizing marijuana is an issue that crosses party lines, with libertarians and some conservatives favoring it from the position of not wanting the government regulating their bodies, smoking pot is not an individual decision without dire consequences to society as a whole.

MILLER: Fat people coddled by Hollywood, P.C. police

Many Americans are making New Year’s resolutions to be healthier with diet and exercise. This is a good thing because obesity is one of the major health crises in America. Yet the political correctness police want to coddle the fat to protect their feelings, which just puts their lives at risk. Published December 27, 2013

MILLER: Obama’s dangerous immigration reform agenda and amnesty

Before leaving on his 17-day vacation in Hawaii, President Obama declared that one of his top priorities for 2014 will be immigration reform, with amnesty. He knows that congressional Republicans feel pressure to do something to woo Hispanic voters. Mr. Obama will leverage those political forces for the midterm elections, even though he doesn’t even enforce the existing immigration laws. Published December 25, 2013

MILLER: Beretta won’t move to Virginia due to Terry McAuliffe's gun-control agenda

Beretta has eliminated Virginia from its short list of states to move its company because anti-gun Democrat Terry McAuliffe was elected governor. Executives made the decision to scratch Virginia off the list after the McAuliffe campaign fixated on restricting gun owners' rights after receiving $1 million campaign donation from billionaire New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, last week led the charge to undo some of the sequester cuts, replacing them with more spending now, offset by promised fees and cuts in the future. Mr. Boehner is one of a number of members of Congress who have changed their stance on the automatic cuts since the 2011 debt deal that set the sequesters in place. (Associated Press)

MILLER: Republicans cave on budget and principle of cutting runaway spending

Republicans are again battling each other rather than fighting against President Obama and congressional Democrats. The conservative wing in Congress, backed by like-minded outside groups, hate to stand by while a federal budget is enacted that increases spending and adds to the $17 trillion debt dragging down our economy.

MILLER: Newtown anniversary is a time for grieving, not politicking

Saturday marks the first anniversary of one of the saddest days in American history. While the families of the victims and the Newtown, Conn., community have asked the media to stay away during the memorial, gun-control activists are shamelessly using Dec. 14 to push their own agenda.

MILLER: The lipstick-on-a-pig Obamacare tour launches

President Obama launched a marketing blitz this week in an attempt to get back some public support for his health care law and salvage his legacy. The problem with his plan is that Americans’ overwhelming dislike of Obamacare stems from finally finding out how big of a disaster it is for their families. No fancy public relations campaign can change reality. Published December 4, 2013

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said "this is serious stuff," referring to renewing the ban on plastic guns. His office said that there may still be time for the Senate to renew the ban when it expires on the day that the chamber reconvenes. (ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOGRAPHS)

MILLER: Chuck Schumer’s scam with 3D plastic guns

Just before the Senate recessed last Thursday for two weeks, Sen. Chuck Schumer abruptly called for unanimous consent for a one-year extension to the Undetectable Firearms Act. The scam was to have the bill expire again during the Senate’s lame duck session in 2014. Published November 26, 2013
