House GOP Setting the Stage for Massive Crony Capitalist Pay Backs in a Lame Duck
House Republicans are preparing a continuing resolution to keep the government open. In doing so, they’ve decided to be total sluts for K Street and Wall Street. The Crony Capitalists, emboldened by the Chamber of Commerce’s help during primary season, are doing some very unusual things. Here’s what I hear is happening. First, they will reauthorize the Ex-Im bank, which is something K Street is | Read More »
Radical Republicans amid Democrat Deconstruction
A responsible stance for elected conservatives over the next two months and the next two years Coming up with a responsible strategy for Congressional Republicans in the unique aftermath of the Election of 2012 has proven problematic to this shell-shocked tea partier. Yes, the ultimate result of the electorate’s choices was, technically, a return to the status quo of divided government; but one would search U.S. | Read More »
America can survive 23 more days without a budget
There is absolutely no reason to capitulate to the illegitimate Democrat majority and their golden parachute continuing resolution The first few days would be tough as the networks show pictures of “suffering” national park workers that may not be paid for 23 more days. But notice that number, 23. Only 23 days. Many Americans who work get paid once per month. Twenty-three days is only | Read More »
Go ahead, lame duck Congress: Make our day!
Go ahead, lame duck Congress: Make our day! By: Herman Cain December 13, 2010 For the first time, the president listened to the majority of the people and was willing to extend the existing tax rates for everyone.

Jobs-producing stimuli are not ‘swindles’ even if they help Obama
Beltway conservative elite’s focus on President Barack Obama’s fortunes are misplaced Does Charles Krauthammer think tea partiers would rather wait another two years before taking actions to turn the economy around? Apparently, as he characterizes the deal struck with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) over extension of the Bush tax cuts and unemployment benefits as a “swindle”: Barack Obama won the great tax-cut showdown of | Read More »
Lame duck rant
To me, one of the many mysteries about our federal government has always been this concept of a ‘lame duck’ Congress. I can understand transition time for the President, being elected in early November, and assuming office in mid-January.

Tax ‘Compromise’ Will Accomplish… Further Disaster.
Businesspeople know that the proposed tax compromises will accomplish exactly nothing and will not result in any real measure of economic recovery or higher employment. Why? Two Year Tax Cut Extension: most businessmen plan considerably further out than 2 years. Giving them an additional 2 years of ‘tax relief’ will not free up capital for hiring – it will simply give them 2 more years | Read More »
How did the Lame Dem Duck cross the road?
Deaf elephants refused to lock the grid If the din of acts of civil American Drive In obedience in January doesn’t penetrate the big ears of Congressional elephants, we will have no choice but to finally resort to conservative MLK-like civil disobedience against the Dumbo in the White House, aka President Barack Hussein Obama, and those Republicans and dog-eared Dems on Capitol Hill that are | Read More »
Lame duck shenanigans planned.
If a piece by John Fund in the Wall Street Journal is even remotely accurate, then the Democrats are planning to enact an agenda that is breathtaking in scope and exhibits historic levels of arrogance and disregard for the wishes of the American people. According to Fund, among the legislation the Democrats are looking to mash through: 1. Card check 2. Tax increases 3. Climate | Read More »
