Other Evidence of Bias
It can be suggested that a United States president, who hadn’t been in office for two weeks yet, may not have earned a Nobel Peace Prize. However, that fact, in and of itself, cannot prove the bias of the Nobel committee. Other evidence is needed. When you survey the other award winners, a pattern emerges. Nobel Prize for Physics – Steven Chu for suggesting we | Read More »

Geithner on Energy: ‘What, Me Worry?’
Back in May, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner penned a letter that lays out in glorious detail the misconceptions and wrong-headed thinking that pervade the Obama Administration’s approach to energy and the environment, taxation and to the economy in general. The letter was a response to one written by Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA7) (a member of the Ways and Means Committee), expressing his concern for the | Read More »
You too can be an Obama administration spokesperson!
Join the Obama administration with the “Do it yourself Obama administration quote maker”! Just take the initial quote: “If we want an economy that’s going to grow in the future, people have to understand we have to bring those deficits down. And it’s going to be difficult, hard for us to do. And the path to that___________.” Then fill in the issue you would currently | Read More »
Geithner’s Inside Scoop on Tax Dodging
As I have said, $332 million would go to new IRS enforcement efforts, including $128.1 million to improve international tax compliance. The balance of these funds would be used to support three critical programs: 755 employees to increase examinations of tax returns for businesses and high-income individuals; 300 employees to expand the IRS document matching program, which compares tax returns to other forms such as | Read More »
Obama’s Economic ‘Dream Team’ Gives Us Nightmares
More than anything thing else, President Obama was elected to ‘fix’ the economic problems that erupted last summer. People, wary of McCain’s financial credentials and fearful of economic meltdown, were willing to give the junior senator from Illinois a chance to prove his case. Obama promised several things that would bring the economy back on track. He promised tax cuts, a stimulus bill, and an | Read More »
Adam Smith Lies to Obama; Result: Misery for Millions
Admittedly, it was an inadvertent lie. Perhaps Adam Smith’s publisher made him do it with an eye toward spurring sales of his book, popularly titled ‘The Wealth of Nations’. Had Obama been aware of the full title of the book, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, perhaps he could have penetrated the ‘lie’, but perhaps not. Obama has already established | Read More »
The Artful Tax Dodger Goes to China . . .
Merrily, the Artful Tax Dodger, Tim Geithner, scurried off weasel-like to China to persuade their Party faithful to buy American, bonds that is. Witnessing a startling dry bond market, Geithner hoped to ‘prime the pump’ with some personal assurances. Of course, that isn’t the take the Obama administration is adopting. They are instead saying these high level talks are to insure a fruitful dialogue between | Read More »
The Comment Filmthreat Dared Not Post
[So there's this article over at Filmthreat. It's an Entertainment/Movie Review site in case you haven't heard of it. The article is about a movie from 1967. 'Scrooge McDuck, and Money,' it's called, by Phil Hall. Here is the link. http://www.filmthreat.com/index.php?section=features&Id=2326. I can promise you that Tim Geithner watched it as a boy. It's probably the single greatest inspiration in his life, beyond wanting to | Read More »
Are Guillotines and Gibbets Being Built by People Across America
Government must never pick winners and losers, or it will turn losers into winners. What redress shall the people have, when the very system has slipped into such mania. By Fiat, the government can do nothing but harm. How can the same people who plundered the House Bank and embezzled from the Congressional House Post Office now manage Economic Recovery? Go see for yourself. Search | Read More »
Give Back America
“Give back, America.” This is the mantra of the Left, spouted and scrawled, ad nauseum, through a form of auto-hypnosis peculiar to their kind. What they’re really saying is ‘give up.’ Just who do they think they’re talking to? You’re the side that still tithes, and gives while the giving’s still good. Americans donate more money to responsible charities than any group anywhere, at any | Read More »
I Know I’m No Economist
But, would someone please explain to me how the banks could be any worse off from releasing the stress tests? The disarray highlights what threatens to be a lose-lose situation for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner: If all the banks pass, the tests’ credibility will be questioned, and if some banks get failing grades and are forced to accept more government capital and oversight, they may | Read More »
Bank bailout secrecy and “Et tu, Barack?”
You can’t handle the truth: The U.S. Federal Reserve has told Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Citigroup Inc. and other banks to keep mum on the results of “stress tests” that will gauge their ability to weather the recession, people familiar with the matter said. The Fed wants to ensure that the report cards don’t leak during earnings conference calls scheduled for this month. Such a | Read More »
