How is the government not a gang?
I know I am not the first and I am sure I will not be the last person to compare our government to the Mafia. The fact is the government offers us “protection” in the form of creating a comfortable society for us to live in. Roads are maintained, airports are set up and maintained, public schools, health care, the military keeps us safe, and | Read More »
Obama Sets Out His Plan – “We,” Means Government
Government, government and more government. In an address before a joint session of Congress, Obama spelled out his plan for his first year in office. While not a true State of the Union Address since Obama has only been in office a little over one month, as with all new Presidents he used the opportunity to present the laundry list for a new administration. Throughout | Read More »
Response to RedState’s Morning Briefing
RedState published a list of the projects included in Porkulus. I have comments about a few of them, I think some of them are pork and some of them will really stimulate the economy. ` $2 billion earmark for FutureGen near zero emissions powerplant in Mattoon, IL Pure pork, a payback to the environmental special interest groups that support Democrats. $39 billion slush fund for | Read More »

There you go again, Bob Gibbs/Obama
citing those “failed (goverment) policies of the past eight years” as to why we must act hastily in passingfalling for the destimulus bill. Would you care to elaborate as to what those failed government policies were?? Was not the housing sector at ground zero of the economic slow down? Yes or no. Did the US massively overallocate debt-financed resources into the housing sector? Yes or | Read More »
Beg, Borrow or Steal
One of my favorite things to watch over and over on DVD is “Band of Brothers,” the HBO miniseries about Easy Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division, in World War II. My favorite episode of the series, “Crossroads,” shows the period between Operation Market Garden, the airborne assault on Holland, and the siege at Bastogne. Late in the episode, as the 101st dutifully marches into | Read More »
What does it take?
The last week has been one of consternation and frustration I suspect for many here on RedState. After seeing some spine starting to develop in Congress I kept thinking… What can we do to keep the pressure on the chosen people who represent us in DC (and in our respective states). Well, then it hit me. I hope you enjoy the following commentary on how | Read More »
Negotiating the Critical Path: the FDA’s Initiative to Streamline the Drug Development Process
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which officially exists, in large part, to “protect the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices,” has been the object of a great deal of criticism over the years from medical patients, drug and biomedical device developers, pharmaceutical companies, and analysts who view the looming shadow | Read More »
Economics, Israel and Blago. Aren’t We Forgetting…?
As we have become so focused lately on the economy, the conflict in Israel and the ongoing Blagojevich scandal, we have lost sight of some other important issues facing the nation, and I wonder if that is not without design. Here are some talking points we need to keep in mind, lest the liberals in Congress and the White House distract us long enough to | Read More »

What Can Government Do For You?
In the wake of the financial crisis, there has been much ballyhooing about what the government will do to fix the aching economy. From bailouts to stimuli to Barack Obama personally filling the gas tank of Peggy Johnson, everyone is trying to reach their hands into the government coffers, hoping to pull out as many greenbacks as they can before seeing the inevitable bottom of | Read More »
The Real Cost of Government Regulation is Paid With Human Lives
The US government has set the price of a human life for the purposes of new regulations at 7 million dollars. The US government does a cost benefit analysis on proposed regulations to see if they make economic sense. This seems like a good idea. Certainly we don’t need regulations that have greater costs than benefits. Now, when it comes to health and safety regulations, | Read More »
Observations from the Cheap Seats
The numbers are staggering. An estimated $7.4 trillion has been spent by Congress and the Fed to bail out the various financial entities, insurers and industries. The $700 billion bailout package, over which there was much publicized angst, is but a bucket of sand in the Sahara, when compared against the actual costs associated with this financial crisis. And, the most disturbing part is that | Read More »
And Now the Government Comes After the Bloggers?
“Gubbmint isn’t the solution,” Ronald Reagan famously said. “Gubbmint is the problem!” Well, until Al Gore invented our wonderful Internet world, there were darn few ways we common citizens could highlight just what the “problem” of government was. But, happily, we bloggers have become the modern version of our Founders plying the pamphleteer’s trade. Now, via the incredible world of blogging, we can spy a | Read More »
