For the Children
How quickly the time goes! Here you are, all grown up and of voting age already. I set out to write a brief letter explaining why I believe Romney is a better choice for your future and a better choice for America. I realized immediately that to do that properly would require at least a book; and even at that it would be unlikely I could reverse the lifetime of propaganda and proselytizing most of you have been exposed to via the education system and popular culture.
So I decided to focus on just one key economic concept that separates the thinking of our progressive Democratic President and his conservative Republican opponent.

Foxes Guarding the Chicken Coop
Last week the Middle East continued an inexorable march toward a holocaust involving nuclear weapons (that Iran doesn’t have) and weapons of mass destruction (that Saddam Husain didn’t have and didn’t move to Syria).
Also last week, the US economy continued to grind to a slow halt as we continued to double down on our Faustian bargain with European socialism (with money that we don’t have). Businesses continued to shutter their doors at “unprecedented” rates, unemployment continued unabated, already anemic GDP “growth” slowed to a near halt, and the forecast for the annual budget deficit hit $1.2 trillion – which means we will bump up against the incomprehensible $16.3 trillion debt ceiling by the end of December.
You’re probably wondering what, in the midst of all this turmoil, are our elected leaders doing to address these grave issues?

Can’t Buy Love? Try Obama’s Corporate Dating Website. Expensive, but Testimonials Swear it Works.
Immelt and the Won peer into the abyss that they’ve created. Together. “The people who are part of the business sector, the people in this room, have got to stop complaining about government and get some action underway,” he told the group. “There’s no excuse today for lack of leadership. The truth is we all need to be part of the solution.” That certainly | Read More »
Welcome Back, Carter: The Updated Video!
Steven Forbes has an op-ed in Politico this week in which he notes the obvious: Barack Obama repeating Jimmy Carter’s mistakes. His focus is on our MIA energy policy, and he’s pulling no punches: The Obama administration is repeating the mistakes of President Jimmy Carter’s failed energy policies, which marred his term and stigmatized the 1970s. They are leading us straight into another national energy | Read More »
The Arrogant, Dismissive – Even Derisive – President Obama
We shouldn’t be surprised. It started when Obama threw his sweet, white grandmother under the bus, trying to sidestep the Reverend Wright controversy: I can no more disown (Reverend Jeremiah Wright)him than I can disown my white grandmother, a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in | Read More »
What’s Wrong With This Picture?
Bill Clinton flies off to North Korea to seal the deal on the release of the two American “journalists” that wandered into North Korea, and BHO brings birthday cupcakes to the 89 year old cupcake Helen Thomas. What’s wrong with this picture? Could it be that Bill Clinton actually looked presidential as he walked off the plane, all somber and steady of foot? As opposed | Read More »
If you start with an incorrect premise, I will guarantee that you arrive at an incorrect solution. For example, health care. Obama started with the premise that our health care system is broken. And no one bothered to question that hypothesis. When in fact, if they had, they would have discovered the obvious: we have the best health care on the planet. Period. Nonpareil. And | Read More »
