Obudget? Oh, Brother! Hold On To Your Wallets – Job Destroyer Inc.
I’m running out of superlatives again. It’s getting to be a barometer of NATIONAL LUNACY, as played out by the White House and the Congressional Clown College. While Obama is taxing the exact segment of the population where job growth is created, just about guaranteeing negative job growth in the private sector, the House Madam, Nancy Pelosi, is spending millions of taxpayer dollars in travel, | Read More »
If The Economy Grew, Why Aren’t The Workers Out Working?

Marking President Barack Obama’s first year in office, the Republican National Committee Thursday released a new web video which makes no bones about the GOP’s attempts to tap into the anti-tax and anti-big government sentiments among Tea Partiers. “His rhetoric promised ‘Change we can believe in,'” the voice-over said, “but his record delivered disappointment, change we didn’t expect.” The ad enumerates those offenses observed as | Read More »
