The rich don’t pay their fair share! Unfortunately that’s true…
There’s an old saying; A picture is worth a thousand words. Pie charts will likely never be confused with great art in terms of story telling, but they have a way of making complicated issues clear. Income taxes are one of those things that are naturally difficult to grasp and the issue is made that much more opaque because liberals love to obscure the facts. | Read More »
Social Justice and Progressives
“Social justice” is a term that has been bandied about recently. Glenn Beck has said that Progressives are using “social justice” to transform America into what they want. Progressives have said that people like Glenn Beck use the term “social justice” to promote fear among the American people. So, the question is: “What is social justice?” According to Dictionary.com, social justice means “the distribution of | Read More »
New taxes and new definition of your income under Obamacare
Here’s how your income will “increase” and so will your taxes, under the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or health care reform/Obamanationcare. (Also, you should know that the DOJ is defending against the the 20 states’ suit against the above Act, saying it is a TAX, and Congress has the unlimited right to tax you for any reason.) Should you want to verify | Read More »
How will Gore et al shelter their wealth from the IRS?
We all know our taxes are going to skyrocket thanks to cap and tax, health care costs, etc. As a result, a lot of Democrats and their high-ranking supporters will make a ton of money by picking our pockets. Al Gore comes to mind. Surely, Gore et al. have plans to protect their windfall profits from the IRS. What about Pelosi, Reid, and of course | Read More »
Changing Our Conservative Vocabulary
Something has been bothering me for some time about the vocabulary conservatives and libertarians have been using to describe liberal economy policy. We hear it on radio from Boortz and Hannity and television from O’Reilly; we read it on blogs by Thomas Sowell and in newspaper columns by George F Will.
The term I refer to is “wealth redistribution,” called for throughout history by Marx, Lenin, Castro and Chavez. Liberals in America don’t use the term, knowing that it will bother conservatives and many moderates. Unfortunately, it is unconvincing to many, especially liberals, that such a beast as wealth distribution would be a bad thing.
After all, “wealth redistribution” is just taking money from the evil, awful “rich” and giving it to those poor, needy “less fortunate.”

Obama’s True Agenda
For months I have been concerned with Obama’s view of Government’s role in citizens’ lives. I have always thought of him as being Socialist, and that worries me. But what worries me more is “why” he has socialist views. I have waited to hear someone, anyone in the media mention this, but our world today is so politically correct, that the mere whisper of an | Read More »
***Updated*** AP-Yahoo poll is biased in seven “distinctly invalid ways relative to known demographics”
In DJ Drummond’s blog discussing the latest AP-Yahoo poll, he stated that the poll was “biased in six distinctly invalid ways relative to known demographics”. So I decided to look for myself and I found 7 worth noting. And I compared his “known demographics with census information. These are the results from Knowledge Networks who conducted the poll, matched with DJ Drummond’s analysis. I made | Read More »
Is a significant income disparity of any consequence? Other than stirring up envy among the “have-nots” does it affect anyone? Does the total of one man’s bank account have any impact on someone else’s lifestyle? Why can’t Americans point to a disparity in incomes and say “that is proof that success is achievable in America”? Maybe the most important question is whether or not the | Read More »
, income disparity
I thought Obama was saying in his speach how the average income has dropped, so explain the numbers to me when they actually show they have increased 1.3%? http://www.census.gov/Press-Release/www/releases/archives/income_wealth/012528.html
