Republican vs Democrat, redefined for the times.
According to the guest on Bill Bennett’s Morning in America radio show Friday, the difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats trust in big government programs to solve America’s problems while Republicans trust in people. At one time this would have been a good answer. Karl Rove would have approved it. For the Reagonomics Era, from the 1980′s through the first half decade of | Read More »
Ascent of the Patronage Economy.
Barrack Obama has been on a mission to fundamentally change America. It is a revolution and as has finally been noted by our side the target is the Reagan revolution. Obama is out to destroy the Republican party and to finish the job President Johnson started. But what is that? With terms like collective efforts being bantered about there are overtones of Stalinist socialism. No | Read More »
Time for Ridcule – Why I am not upset about gun control
I know this is a serious subject but taking the Democrats seriously is NOT the way to end the discussion of gun control. Using Rule #5 “Ridicule is man’s most powerful weapon” is the way to shut the democrats up for good. And gun control could be the opportunity. Why I am not upset about gun control. Obama lived his high school years in an | Read More »
Some quick thoughts on the tax bill
The NEA executives would probably have had to pay more in taxes, if the Republicans did nothing after we went over the cliff. The legislators in Washington would have had to pay more in taxes if we did nothing after America went over the fiscal cliff. I would like to add a new bracket category to the rich, middle class and working class. The Rich | Read More »
Obama buys third term
The price was cheap. Raise Legislator salaries for the first time in years, so the pain of the taxes that were raised for everyone won’t hurt. Raise the threshold so that enough of the Representatives and Senatorswon’t get hit with soak the rich rates unless their wives make absurd income. Allow John Boehner to hold Ohio Represnetative’s seat as his fief as long as he | Read More »
Cutting spending, shrinking government, painlessly? Not
General numbers. About forty percent of our spending is for discretionary items. The same amount that is deficit spending, The truth is that if you cut 40% of the spending to balance the budget or you shut down the government (except for non-discretionary spending) the result will be exactly the same. Two years ago, give or take a few days, we voted to create the | Read More »
Are we in this to win, or sleep well at night.
The first step in getting what we want in Washington is to stop arguing about what is the best way to do everything and concentrate on the need for power. The Democrats understand this. Who is our Diane Feinstein? Who is sitting in the wings just waiting for an opportunity to advance power grabbing legislation that will help weaken the grip of the establishment progressives? | Read More »
Guns in schools? Yes, but how……
This week there has been a lot of discussion about guns in schools. The no gun zone liberals seem to be winning the argument and another opportunity to make America a gun free zone is too good for the Democrats to pass up. But the real question needs to be why the government has failed in it’s most basic concept of making our communities safe | Read More »
Anything but debt the ceiling.
Give Obama anything he wants on taxes, and a few months from now Joe Q Public starts asking why we need to raise the debt ceiling after Obama fixed the taxes. Give him the debt ceiling and Joe Q Public thinks everything in Washington is fine now, because see, we don’t have to keep fighting to borrow money and that means we are not borrowing | Read More »
Where gun control belongs in our discussions.
Arguing about whether guns are protected is a waste of energy, because government can’t control anything, they can’t control the border, they can’t control illegal immigration, they can’t control drugs, they can’t control the mentally ill who make our streets unsafe for children, and our put our health at risks, they can’t control repeat criminals, or flash mobs. They can’t even control there own spending. | Read More »
