States Reject Big Government
Enacting tax reform to ensure citizens and businesses keep more of their own money is a natural way for states to grow their economies. In fact, with federal mandates in just about every area from labor to education to healthcare, tax codes are one public policy area where states can determine a path independent of Washington, D.C. Federalism is alive and well in state tax policy.

We Are The 55%

“We Will Brand Your 8-year-old Kid a Racist for Life.”
Via Daniel Hannan comes this horrifying story of parental bullying via some school in the UK called the “Littleton Green Community School.” Apparently last week, parents in this school district received the following letter sent home (of COURSE in Comic Sans): Now, just to say up front, if I had faith in this particular school district, I would probably have zero problem with my child | Read More »
Are We Headed for a Slowdown in Manufacturing?

The Onion explains (obliquely) why Democrats should ignore #ofa’s #obamacare Thanksgiving advice.
Point (The Daily Caller): America’s families will soon get their turkey, potatoes and cranberries at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners — but some will also get a tableside political pitch for the Obamacare insurance network. President Barack Obama’s deputies at Organizing for Action are urging supporters to give an Obamacare pitch to their relatives during the most iconic of American family and religious events. “Take advantage | Read More »
A majority of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy
A new CNN/ORC poll finds that 53% of Americans now believe that President Obama is “not honest and trustworthy.” This is the first time that CNN polling has found that a clear majority feels that Obama is not honest and trustworthy. The CNN poll confirms what we reported last week. Now that it is obvious that Obama lied when he promised over and over again | Read More »
Nameless Republicans Complain to Liberals About Conservatives
I’m back from London.It seems I have missed little.Apparently, every reporter in America felt compelled last week to write accounts of where they were when John F. Kennedy died. Those reporters not yet born, revised history enough to make it work. It’s like the press has finally realized Barack Obama is no longer qualified to be secular Jesus, so they’ve gone back to JFK.Mitch McConnell | Read More »
“Failure is ALWAYS an option*.” #obamacare
A free hint to my fellow liberal arts majors: outside of our own, rather narrow, academic disciplines, it really doesn’t matter how hard you wish for something. You’re not gonna get it that way: The idea that “failure is not an option” is a fantasy version of how non-engineers should motivate engineers. That sentiment was invented by a screenwriter, riffing on an after-the-fact observation about | Read More »
Head’s up: apparently, there’s an Iran deal going on.
Hard to say, really: the President was supposed to be on at 10:15 PM Eastern to announce it. He’s late. As usual. (10:28 PM, no Barack Obama): Full White House fact sheet on Iran deal: http://t.co/hYEms4aI13 — Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) November 24, 2013
ObamaCare loses support among Women and Democrats as Obama approvals tank
It was a very bad polling week for President Obama and ObamaCare, his signature legislative achievement. First, the new ABC News/Washington Post poll found that, if they had the opportunity to do it over, registered voters would choose Mitt Romney over President Obama by a margin of 49% to 45%. Obama’s approvals also hit a new all-time low in the poll with a 42% approval | Read More »

@BarackObama ‘extends’ application ‘deadline’ to December 23rd. #obamacare
This is actually not going to work, you know. The Obama administration on Friday offered an extension of the current ObamaCare enrollment period — though not exactly what Republicans were seeking. Federal health officials announced Friday afternoon that they’d give people another eight days this year to enroll in an insurance policy and still get covered by Jan. 1. Previously, people had to enroll by | Read More »
Mark Udall, the Partisan High Jumper
Here’s the pattern. President Obama and Harry Reid say jump and Senator Mark Udall asks how high. Yesterday, Udall jumped over more than 200 years of history to rubber stamp the Obama/Harry Reid move changing the Senate rules to allow judicial and executive branch nominees to be approved by a simple majority. This will make it easier for President Obama to get his way on | Read More »
The New York Times Equates Opposing Obamacare With Slavery
One does not expect to find insightful, cogent, or fair commentary on the editorial pages of the New York Times. Banal liberalism, provincialism, and insulation from the beliefs of flyover America are standard fare and thus to be expected. But every once in a while, a piece comes along which is so utterly devoid of reason, taste, or linear thought that it deserves to be pointed | Read More »
