##Appellation##,

There are many on the left who constantly argue that America needs to be more like the Scandinavian socialist paradises of Europe, and one of the things they most admire is government health care that allows assisted suicide and “death with dignity” for the terminally ill. They poo-poo objections that it’s a slippery slope to let the government determine who can live or die because when the budget gets tight (as it inevitably will with government health care), decisions about who lives or dies might start trending more toward who’s costing more money to keep alive than who’s really suffering.

(Of course, liberals often argue that “slippery slope” arguments are never valid, even as they fight tooth-and-nail against even the most reasonable restrictions on late-term abortion for fear they’ll lead to Roe v. Wade being overturned).

But the latest case of assisted suicide to hit the news should give pause to anyone who wants to import the Scandinavian medical morality to the US like an IKEA sofa.

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

Be sure to tune in tonight at 8 EST, 7 CST for a very special episode of “Huckabee” on TBN. I’ll be discussing the release of Rep. Devin Nunes’ FBI memo and the reaction to it with expert guests, including Fox News’ Kelly Wright and Rep. Rick Crawford of the House Intelligence Committee. I’ll also have pollster Pat Caddell to talk about President Trump’s State of the Union, his first year in office and what lies ahead in 2018. Plus we’ll have some terrific Frank Sinatra music from actor/singer Robert Davi, and more surprises in store. For info and to find out where where you can see TBN in your area, visit this link:

Americans are dreamers too

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump’s State of the Union speech not only boosted his personal approval rating, it seems to have goosed support for his immigration plan as well. Democrats had been touting polls showing a majority of Americans opposing a wall on the Southern border, but after the SOTU speech, a CBS/YouGov poll found support for the wall at 59-41%. Overall, 72% of Americans said they support the immigration proposal Trump laid out on Tuesday, compared to a previous poll showing only 47% approval of the job he was doing on immigration.

I wonder if that’s because Americans finally heard, unfiltered, Trump’s plan for offering amnesty to Dreamers but only in exchange for a border wall and an end to chain immigration and the visa lottery? Or maybe it’s because after seeing the Democrats’ behavior on Tuesday, they decided that the only proposal they have for illegal immigration is “More, please.”

Free Twinkies

By Mike Huckabee

Democrats unanimously opposed the GOP tax cut bill, claiming that corporations would just keep all the money or give it to shareholders. Instead, the number of major companies offering bonuses, raises and/or expanded benefits now stands at 304. And one of the latest is giving workers the sweetest deal of all.

The Hostess snack cake company, which was struggling out of bankruptcy just five years ago, announced bonuses of up to $1250 each for employees (split between cash and a $500 401k contribution). Better yet, all workers will receive one free multi-pack of Hostess’ “product of the week” each week for a year, adding up to a year’s worth of free Twinkies, Snowballs, Ding-Dongs, Zingers, etc. Although I kind of suspect that some employees probably applied for the job in the first place because they thought the benefits included free Twinkies.

UPS invests

By Mike Huckabee

UPS has also announced a $12 billion investment in America, thanks to the GOP tax cut. It will include $7 billion worth of construction and renovation of facilities, tech upgrades and new vehicles and aircraft (which should help create a lot of non-UPS jobs), plus a $5 billion contribution to employee pension plans, which works out to about $13,000 per enrollee.

Attention, Rep. Nancy Pelosi: is that big enough yet for you to consider it a complete piece of cake rather than just a crumb?

Coming attraction

By Mike Huckabee

You might have heard about the incident Friday in a Michigan courtroom when the father of three young women victimized by former Olympic gymnastics coach and convicted sex abuser Larry Nassar attempted to physically attack him. The angry dad was tackled by deputies before he reached Nassar. While this kind of outburst is not acceptable in a land ruled by law, I hope the judge will be lenient in considering what this man was going through as a father. As for Nassar, he can probably take this as a coming attraction of the type of welcome he’s likely to receive during his coming 175-year prison term.

    Love your commentaries, Mr. Huckabee! I also likened President Trump's comment about allowing terminally ill people access to try experimental drugs. My 34 yr. old nephew has an inoperable brain tumor. He was given less than a year to live if he didn't have chemo and radiation. If he had chemo and radiation he may have 22 months. The side effects of these treatments were worse than the incurable disease itself. He decided to have a non-conventional treatment of Vitamin C infusions and now eats a super healthy diet and no sugar whatsoever. His tumor is still there but hasn't grown or "leaked" and he feels terrific. However, these infusions are 2 times per week at $250 each. They cost less than chemo or radiation but NOT covered by his insurance! His mother just found out that the Vitamin C treatment is being turned over to pharmaceutical industry and the price will be tripled! None of this makes sense. I hope the Trump administration will take examples like this into consideration when they work on the healthcare plans.
